This is an excerpt from the audiobook; Day 2.  The book is broken down into 28 days of study, and in this second day I discuss how to hand read the villain in a hand and give you a link to a video that demonstrates this.  I then discuss an article I studied and share with you my notes on the article, and lastly I dive into my database to learn ways I can improve my game.  I end the day with my warm-up and cool down for the session I play later in the day.

Blind vs Blind | MED #4 Class 3 | Poker Podcast #120
22:32

4 Step Plan for BvB Confrontations

1. Set your ranges

2. Know your opponent

3. Plan the hand

4. Follow through with your plan

Post-flop Play in BvB situations

Challenge

Here’s my challenge to you for this episode:  Open up Flopzilla and do some Ace combo counting.  How many Aces does a 10% calling range have?  What about a 15, a 25, or even a 30% calling range?  How many Aces does a 15% opening range contain?  What about a 20 or a 35% opening range?  Start doing some work on this off the tables and you’ll soon realize that an Ace on the flop isn’t the scariest thing when you’re not holding an Ace yourself.

Now it’s your turn to take action and do something positive for your poker game.

25NL Cash Game Poker Commentary | Podcast #119
41:54

25NL Cash Game Poker Commentary

A listener named John Burke sent in a suggestion:

Hey Sky, I’m on a road trip today and listening to some of your older podcasts. I’m writing because I thought of a good idea for some podcast episodes that I would love and I’m sure others would appreciate as well.

Last night I was watching some poker on TV trying to analyze how the others were playing to improve my game. I’m thinking to myself right now, “What if Sky did a 30 minute to 1 hour LIVE commentary of him playing a poker game online. The podcast would basically be your live commentary through every hand, even the ones that you are not in.

This would allow the listeners to get LIVE advice and tips from you while playing a hand, learn from actual game experience, and add a nice addition to the podcast.

Let me know what you think.

I love it, thanks, John.

3bet Calling Ranges, Poker Podcasts, Hand Reading and ‘The Course’ | Q&A | Podcast #098
22:23

Question #1 from Oscar (2:25):

Do you have any idea what are the ranges to call against a 3 Bet? I am lost on that part, bro.

Question #2 from Tom Shock (12:00):

What poker podcasts do you listen to? Other than yours, of course.

Question #3 from Paul (14:30):

Hey Sky,
I’ve played poker going back to pre-Black Friday. I live in Jersey so mostly play online.
I wanna get better but haven’t put enough time in. Can’t afford Splitsuit’s hand reading course right now. I’m a break-even player at best, and need to think about ranges more!!
Any suggestions on how I can start improving my hand reading skills? Does Flopzilla give a tutorial on figuring out Ranges?
Thanks for your time and effort. Keep up the great work!! Your enthusiasm is infectious!
Paul

Question #4 from Gus (17:15):

Sky,
I’ve been reading Ed Miller’s “The Course,” after I heard about it on your podcast. What do you recommend doing to practice each Skill level? Are there any online poker sites you highly recommend to do this on? Or are there other methods your recommend?
Thanks, Gus

Read the article here: http://www.exceptionalpoker.com/?p=2301

‘The Third Factor That Turned Me Into a Winning Poker Player: I Learned to Get Inside The Villain’s Head.’ (3:10)

My Take (8:40)

1st Point: Observing Mistakes & Diving Deeper (9:30)

2nd Point: Taking Useful Notes (10:55)

Question from Rob (14:30)

Excellent post – and encouraging too, that all this “out of hand” observation will pay off. I use non play time to look for tells, but I should probably be observing betting size and approach compared to street and if seen, hand strength. I need a poker brain CPU and ram upgrade. lol

Any tips for fathoming the logic used by loose LAGs? I’m hunting for a strategy when OOP to an aggressive LAG. My plan is usually to enter with a good hand and let them fire into me, unfortunately the cards sometimes don’t come.

Appreciate your thoughts.

Podcast Challenge (17:45)

Here’s my challenge to you for this episode: In the next session you play, make an active effort to watch every hand at the table and make useful notes on your opp’s. Typing out hand history notes isn’t good enough. Classify them by player type, and note how you can exploit them.

Cold Calling Ranges | MED #1 Class 2 | Smart Poker Study Podcast #091
33:18

Podcast Mission (3:40)

My mission for today is to teach you how to cold call profitably.  You’ll learn which types of hands should go into your pre-flop cold calling ranges and why.  I’ll teach you what you must consider before clicking that call button pre-flop, and why it’s okay to stay tight and have a fairly small calling range.

Cold Calling Theory (5:35)

 

Considerations for each hand you play (13:35)

 

My current cash cold calling ranges (19:05)

 

How to calculate the equity of a cold calling range vs the opener’s range (26:00)

Find the video on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9eduhdb48S0

Adaptations for MTT play (26:40)

 

STUDY: Studying cold calling spots (27:40)

Podcast Challenge (31:00)

Here’s my challenge to you for this episode: Use the cold calling ranges I presented here over the next week. Record your thoughts on them and the results from your poker tracking software. Make adjustments as you review your hand histories and find hands that just don’t work for you and ditch them, or add hands that you wish were in the ranges. The more you use cold calling ranges, the tighter and stronger your calling ranges will be, making you a thorn in the side of your opponents and earning you more of their chips.

Podcast Mission (3:35)

My mission for today is to teach you the optimal opening frequencies I recommend by position, and how to build your ranges to meet these frequencies. I’ll also give you the exact ranges I currently play with.

Positions to Consider for Open Raising Ranges (6:45)

Podcast Challenge (25:30)

Here’s my challenge to you for this episode: Use the ranges I presented here over the next week. Record your thoughts on them and the results from your poker tracking software. Do these ranges work for you? Are they too constricting or much too wide for your style of play? And if you want to make changes, go ahead, but give the changes an extended trial period to see their effectiveness. The goal is to make yourself a stronger player with simpler post-flop decisions to make.

4 Posts from the SPS Facebook Group | Q&A | Smart Poker Study Podcast #089
19:49

Post #1 from Mark (2:00):

Would like you guys thoughts on a question posed online today I answered and I been getting about 50% agreement and other half think I need to see a shrink. Guy says he has had a bad run in 1/2 live game. He has only 55$ left. adding any more to his stack is not an option. It folds to a very loose lady player who has turned over any 2 suited or any 2 the Broadway cards all night and will take them to the river. She raises to 15 and he has 77. There are 4 people left to act. What do you do?

Post #2 from John (7:00):

Had a deep run in the 25k on acr today. Took 45th, but I'm kind of curious what you guys think of the hand that knocked me out. I'm fairly positive that it was standard, but would like to hear some opinions.

Blinds are 8k/16k 800 ante. I have 340K start of hand. Hijack opens for 35k, I have him being a pretty solid opponent, wasn't getting out of line. I pick up AK spades on the button. I elect to 3 bet to 105k, he insta shoves all in, he has me covered. Do you call off there? If so why? If not why?

Post #3 from John (10:20):

Question for the group...You're playing an online MTT, 63 places get paid out of a field of 350ish.
65 people left, average stack is 20k, you have 18k and blinds ate 400/800 100 ante. Utg limps, utg+1 raises to 2400, he has 45k start of hand. You pick up JJ in the small blind. What's your play? Lemme also add that I just got moved to this table so I have no info on these players.

Post #4 from Sky (15:00):

Hey John, check out this hand. Very similar to yours, but I'm in the BB. I 3bet and TAG villain folded. Good result for JJ OOP I think. You can see their stats and I'd been at the table a while. It wasn't as close to the bubble as yours was, though, and I had a bit more chips (BB wise).

19:13

Podcast Mission (4:30)

My mission for today is to give you my list of the MED’s of Poker and to explain the rationale behind the items on the list and the order that they’re in. This way you can get started sooner rather than later studying all 10 items. The 1st should be studied before the 2nd, the 2nd before the 3rd, and so on. I will also give you a great resource to help you begin your studies into the first MED.

Answer this question for yourself and jot down your answers: What do you think the top 10 MED’s of poker are?

Introduction to the MED's of Poker (5:30)

Here’s the list of Poker’s Top 10 MED’s:

  1. Opening Theory and Ranges
  2. Stealing and the Math Associated
  3. 3bet Theory
  4. Blind Play
  5. Player Types and Tendencies
  6. Cbet Theory
  7. Post-flop Math - Odds & Outs and the maths associated
  8. Check Raises and Donk Bets (OOP Play)
  9. Hand Reading
  10. Poker mindset

MED #1-10: Descriptions and what to expect (8:10)

MED#1: Opening Theory and Ranges (13:40)

Podcast Challenge (16:30)

Here’s my challenge to you for this episode:  Remember that list of 10 MED’s I asked you to write at the beginning of the podcast during the mission?  Well, let me know how and why your list differed from mine.  I’d love to get your input into my list of Poker’s MED’s and how you would rather it be organized.  Who knows, your input might open my eyes to something new I haven’t thought of.  Kaizen in action, always working to improve and open to suggestions!  Ganbatte!

Poker Study Groups, MTT Opening Ranges and Bubble Play | Q&A | Smart Poker Study Podcast #085
21:18

Question 1 from Mike (2:20)

Good Afternoon Sky!
I have another question for you that might be an interesting topic to talk about.
As you know I host a bi-weekly relatively low buy-in poker tournament game with a big group of friends and acquaintances. Some of the more serious guys in my group and I are talking about getting a small group together every other week to talk about poker outside of actually playing a game. What types of things do you think would be good to go over? Any particular format you think would be more beneficial for the group to follow? Our plan right now is for everyone to bring at least one interesting hand they saw in a video, or a discussion from a podcast, or something they read in a poker book for us to debate/discuss or work on our math, etc.
Thanks again!
Mike @utgpoker on Instagram

Question 2 from Isaac (10:50)

What is your opening range for Microstakes MTTs?

Question 3 from Isaac (16:10)

 Well, talking about the open ranges that you sent me; how do you calculate the ranges on the bubble and near the final table? I have BIG problems on those and I think that will be the key to breaking the micros.

Bounty Tourneys, Barreling and Showing Hands | Q&A | Smart Poker Study Podcast #084
22:40

http://www.smartpokerstudy.com/pod84

I answer 3 listener Q’s about playing in bounty tourneys, barreling your opponents off their hands and the perils of showing your hand unnecessarily.

Question 1 from Mike (3:00)

Good Afternoon Sky!
I am hosting a bounty tournament this weekend. I have never actually played in one, but have been thinking about the strategic implications of the bounty in relation to overall tournament “equity” (buy-in vs payouts) and ICM considerations. Do you have any thoughts on KO Bounty Tournaments and how to adjust?
Thanks

Question 2 from Ed (8:00)

Hi Sky,
Any thoughts on how far to take a c-bet?
When I open a pot I usually c-bet even if I miss the flop. If I get called I will barrel the turn and if called again, do I barrel the river? Or shut down by checking and folding if villain bets?
Ed

Question 3 from Tim (15:45)

Hello Sky,
I’ve been trying to play in a lot of small stakes daily NLHE tournaments at my local casino. Low buy-ins with lots of the same faces playing. Last night I felt like I was playing well until one hand and it got in my head. I kept dwelling on it afterwards and thinking about my table image and went all-in with a weak hand for 19th outta 50.
Here’s the hand that set me off: I was in late position. Blinds were 75/150. Four Limper’s ahead of me. I raised to 450 with QQ. Big blind and one other called. I flopped a set. I bet large, 2,000 because there were two clubs on the flop. The BB hesitated but called, the other guy folded. The turn was a club. The BB bet 4k.
I started thinking he caught the flush and I did end up folding. That might have been a mistake but for sure my mistake was showing my fold. I thought I was showing off a big fold to save face and ego or something.
The whole table started saying, “How could you fold that with the river still to come!?!” Even the dealer said he would have played that.
It got in my head and it was all downhill from there. I felt embarrassed.
What do you think?
-Tim

Breaking Poker Rules | Q&A | Smart Poker Study Podcast #083
20:47

http://www.smartpokerstudy.com/pod83

I answer a listener question about breaking “poker rules” and give 5 specific “rules” worth breaking at the poker tables.

Question 1 from Martin (1:30)

Hello,
Sometimes when I’m at a LIVE table, people love to give unsolicited opinions and treat their ideas and plays like poker rules that everyone should play by and if you don’t you’re a fool. Recently, this one guy was telling someone else at the table that he should never raise small pp’s and you should just limp and call to set mine. But, I kept my mouth shut and didn’t say anything as I don’t talk strategy at the tables. I know that this player is very poor, and I don’t want to say anything about these rules he freely tells all. What do you think about this? Would you say anything to him?
Thanks for the podcast, Martin

I discuss the importance of asking great questions when studying and when playing poker.  Voltaire said, “Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers.”

Podcast Mission (3:30)

My mission for today is to teach you that the quality of your poker education is a result of the quality of the questions you ask. I’ll give you some great questions to ask yourself when hand reading your opponents, as well as spur you to start asking better questions to help you understand your opponents and their actions.

Asking the Right Questions (4:05)

Questions from 'The Hand Reading Lab'

What’s the worst _______ he’d open here?

 

How often will they fold to a 3bet?

Lots of question to ask on the flop

 

Practicing your question asking (14:10)

Quotes

“Knowledge is having the right answer.  Intelligence is asking the right question.” – unknown

“Ignorance is a temporary affliction, remedied only by asking the right questions.” – Colin Wright: Exile Lifestyle is the blog of author, entrepreneur, and full-time traveler, Colin Wright

“Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers.” – Voltaire: Voltaire (real name François-Marie Arouet) (1694 - 1778) was a French philosopher and writer of the Age of Enlightenment. His intelligence, wit and style made him one of France's greatest writers and philosophers.

“He who is afraid to ask is ashamed of learning.” – Danish Proverb

“No one is dumb who is curious. The people who don't ask questions remain clueless throughout their lives.” – Neil DeGrasse Tyson: Astrophysicist

Podcast Challenge (16:20)

Here’s my challenge to you for this episode:  Make a list of questions that you could ask yourself on the river that will help guide your river approach.  Take a situation of your choice: Maybe the flush completed, the board paired, an over card came, a seemingly unimportant card came, or whatever situation you want.  Now, make a list of at least 3 questions to help guide your actions on the river.  What knowledge will help you make the value bet, the bluff bet, the check raise, the check call or the check behind that’s correct in this instance?  There are plenty of questions you could ask yourself to guide you to the correct strategy.

Send me your river questions via email and I’ll reply with the questions I like to ask myself on the river.  Let’s learn together, you and me, taking our question asking skills to the next level!

Great Poker Minds | Q&A | Smart Poker Study Podcast #081
15:07

http://www.smartpokerstudy.com/pod81

In this episode I answer a listener question about the characteristics of great poker minds: patient, open, calculating, non-emotional & striving for the best decisions

Question 1 from Gil (1:35)

Hey Sky
Love the show, thanks for putting it out. I’ve been a long time poker player, but I still have tons of mental game issues, like tilt and looking at results instead of how I’m playing. I really liked your podcast on The Mental Game of Poker and I’m going to read it soon, just need to find the time. What do you think I need to work on to fix my mental game?
Thanks and keep it up,
Gil

I’ve got some thoughts on the mental aspects of poker, and I thought I’d arrange my answer around the characteristics I think a poker player should strive to develop. There are 5 characteristics that I think all the poker greats share:

  1. Patient and Persevering
  2. Open Minded
  3. Always Calculating
  4. Never Emotional
  5. Strives to Make the Best Plays… Always

I show you how to count poker hand combos to aid your mathematical understanding of the game and the ranges of your opponents.

Podcast Mission (3:15)

My mission for today is to teach you how to count combos of hands in poker.

Take the time right now to answer these questions as a quick little test for yourself:

  1. How many hole card hands can you possibly be dealt in NLHE?
  2. How many ways can you be dealt JJ?
  3. How many ways can you be dealt TJ?
  4. The flop comes T92r, what hands have open-ended straight draws and how many combos of this draw are possible?

Total number of possible NLHE hands

Individual hands – possible combos of each

Board Interaction

 

Flush Draws

 

Card Removal or Blockers

 

How to practice combo counting

Podcast Challenge (18:30)

Here’s my challenge to you for this episode:  Count the combos your opponent might have in this scenario: You open with 88, he calls on the button.  You estimate his calling range as 30% of hands, but he would normally 3bet JJ+ and AK, so you can take those out of his range b/c he just called your open.  The flop comes down 672r.  What hands and drawing hands might he have and how many combos of each?

  • Sets
  • 2pair
  • Open-ended straight draws
  • Gut shot draws

Send me your answer via email and I’ll reply with my own assessment of his possible combos.  Let’s learn together, you and me, taking our combo counting game to the next level!

BONUS: Nathan “BlackRain79” Williams Article Read | Smart Poker Study Podcast #078
17:57

http://www.smartpokerstudy.com/pod78

I read a great article from BlackRain79 (Nathan Williams) on how to tilt your weak micro stakes opponents for maximum profit, and give additional insights into exploiting the weak.

'How to Tilt Lesser-Skilled Players at the Lower Stakes’ by Nathan "BlackRain79" Williams

My Thoughts (9:10)

Podcast Challenge (14:55)

Here’s my challenge to you for this episode:  In the next session you play, pick a weak player and purposefully try to tilt them.  Follow what BlackRain79 says here and do the following:

  1. Play IP
  2. Raise with anything playable without agro players to your left
  3. Cbet a ton (especially in the beginning)
  4. Don’t pay off with crap hands when they start committing chips to the pot with bets and raises
  5. Go for lots of value with good hands when they appear to start tilting

24:38

http://www.smartpokerstudy.com/pod77

I show you how to figure out your opponent’s 3bet continuance ranges; the hands they call your 3bets with and what they 4bet with.  We'll cover the HUD stats most useful for this, as well as 3 questions to answer as you use Flopzilla for the heavy lifting.

Podcast Mission (3:40)

My mission for today is to teach you how to logically create your opponent’s 3bet calling and 4betting ranges.

Take the time right now to answer these questions for yourself before we get to the meat of today’s podcast

  1. Why should I consider what my opponent continues with vs my 3bet?
  2. What HUD statistics should help me determine his continuance ranges?
  3. How do I determine what my opponent’s continue with?

Why should I consider what my opponent continues with vs my 3bet? (4:35)

What HUD statistics should help me determine his continuance ranges? (7:05)

How do I determine what my opponent’s continue with vs my 3bet? (12:05)

Podcast Challenge (21:30)

Here’s my challenge to you for this episode: Run through this exact same process again, but this time we’ll make it a simpler scenario. You’re up against a TAG player who opens 14% from UTG. You 3bet from the BTN. His stats say he folds to 3bets 85% of the time, and 4bets 4% of the time. What does he continue with? Send me your answer via email and I’ll reply with my own assessment of his 3bet calling and 4betting ranges. Let’s learn together, you and me, taking our 3betting games to a n
