I hated watching it - just constantly reminded me that I have to open up my game. I struggle with it so much because I spend so much time in that 20 - 25 bb range.
So true what he said that most pple should be opening close to 3x when semi deep. I did a mini experiment the other day and started opening everything with 2.2x. Disaster, 3 or 4 callers every pot. Maybe it was during the weekend that had a something to do with it, but regardless, it didn't work out too well.
I watch good players, both live and online, that effectively open alot of pots, trying to take as many pots as they can, sometimes risking dropping into that re-steal stack territory by not being afraid to double or triple barrel when it's appropriate. It's definitely tougher to play against these good lags than good tags.
Great video though.

PokerStars 2014-03-12 04:48:03 @connor472010 If you're playing better than your opponent/s you'll beat them in the long run but it's certainly beneficial to take breaks.

AllenKessler 2014-03-12 04:39:44 @realcharder30 @scott_seiver best to just play it out as advertised. People played day 1assuming 90min levels starting at level 11.
realcharder30 2014-03-12 04:36:14 @AllenKessler @scott_seiver 4 day tournament, not much else they can do.
AllenKessler 2014-03-12 04:35:19 @scott_seiver I have a prediction that players will object to this change mid tournament and it will be 90minutes all of day 2.

AllenKessler 2014-03-12 04:30:45 @PakmanMMA what do you think about changing level 11-16 length from 90-60 minutes mid tournament
holdplz 2014-03-12 04:26:48 Out of bay. Looking forward to Sacramento in a few. Bay Area in between.
AllenKessler 2014-03-12 04:24:11 @sweettweettdude @scott_seiver @SavagePoker @WPT very slippery slope I agree. People bought in assuming the posted levels and lengths.
SenseiChanning 2014-03-12 04:20:35 @brucemillington damn. You got me. Best of luck.
SenseiChanning 2014-03-12 04:15:27 @brucemillington which one is the nap?
scott_seiver 2014-03-12 04:10:27 lvls 11-16 down to 60 min mid-tournament? Can be done? Is that right? This is a HUGE slippery slope I feel. @SavagePoker @WPT
