Any help Appreciated, I want to improve.
+1 khanrava on the 10$ run it once sub. I had the elite sub and the last couple months i watched mostly essential guys. There's only 5 of them right now but guys like sh4wshank, senterpied, ozzie, luke greenwood and clutch hero are all legit, current grinders. The majority of their vids are live recordings where they're playing up to 6 tables, great for seeing how they play from start to finish. And yeah, like the others said, most of those things will come with time. Not to discourage you, but it'll probably take like 2-3 years+ to get a good understanding and know what you want to be doing ...

Comments On These Hands Please
Yeah that's why i said especially in a 1$. I doubt anyone here reshoves correctly in an icm spot. And honestly, most regs wouldn't reshove correctly either, because people don't know how their calling range should change in these spots. You can't just ignore the guy who is short in a chip ev spot either, you're 5 handed. A9 isn't that good of a hand either for open shoving 20bb. JTs, KQo type hands i could get behind because you're still going be doing ok if called, not so much with A9o. I don't think A9 is any better than break even here.

Comments On These Hands Please
Can't imagine open shoving 20bb utg 5 handed being very good ever. Especially not deep in a 1$ tourney...is it an FT' Either way, just raise call the button and fold to everyone else. second standard and ya i just fold the third one when someone playing pretty solid just 5x's it from ep.

Uber deep in low stakes MTT, huge payouts $8-BI 30K GTD
I mean there's definitely a legitimate chance you're getting check raised by a wide range of hands like big draws, gut shots/backdoor draws, hands beating you and complete air. There's also a lot of hands to get value from. It just depends on the player. I think the majority of players these days are capable of making moves especially on a board like this. Vs good players or aggro players i like checking. Vs tighter players i'd rather bet for value and just fold if i get raised. You just can't go wrong checking back (unless you do what your friend did here). There's enough hands like missed ...

Uber deep in low stakes MTT, huge payouts $8-BI 30K GTD
Seems totally fine to check back here....i like checking more than betting honestly. And I don't really agree with why you're betting. I don't really want to bet to fold out all of his air. I think anything that just check folds has very little equity anyway. Depends on the player, but i think a lot of people turn their gut shots into bluffs in these spots, so i would expect to get check raised on the flop a decent amount. I don't want to try to get someone in an 8$ to fold better here either, they just won't unless they're really tight. Think if you're betting you're looking to get value, ...

button vs. blinds opening sizing ...
I don't really have an answer for this but think it is a pretty interesting topic. I mean it's not small stakes players who defend wide...any good player probably defends wider than the average micro player vs lp opens. Imo, there should be a (close to) perfect pre flop opening size for every situation. Either go closer to 3x sometimes, min opening etc...Not really something i paid much attention to before i stopped playing, but if i were active it would be something i worked on a lot more. So yeah, i always kept my raise sizings mostly 2x but i don't think it's that good either. I think ...

MTT after the bubble play advice
Making the money consistently isn't necessarily a good thing. Usually just means you're playing tight enough to min cash and will need to get lucky to do anything else. This question comes up a ton and there's no quick tip someone can give an inexperienced player that is going to just make you overcome this. You'll get the obvious replies like you need to be more aggressive, pick good 3b spots, steal more, barrel etc...That all will come with hard work and experience. But if you just try to be more aggressive without actually knowing what you're doing, you're just going to make a bunch of ...

Do heads up specialists do better at tournaments?
This...top hu players and cash players run over tourneys. I would guess their push fold etc isn't going to be perfect, but will be really hard to play against when they have chips.

Yeah i just put 1 in the first prize spot. For 3b shoves you don't need to change sizing on that next window...but for 4b and higher you have to.

Tricky spot for begginer
It's a tough spot for anyone, not just beginners. There's probably a good chance you aren't playing these profitably(if you think you're making mistakes or finding yourself in this position a lot) so folding pre is a good option here. I'll give my .02 on how i would approach it...i don't play many turbos, but might be more happy to take the shove here than normal structures. I wouldn't say it's a definite shove/fold spot though...calling should be fine vs the majority of players in these. Whether i call, fold or shove depends on how i perceive the opener. If he's an aggro opener i'd just ...

this fold , yay or nah ???
Don't 3b/f, your hand is too good. If you don't want to get it in play post flop....but yeah, i'm just 3b/c a cut off open for 30bb regardless of reads.

Playing out of position MTT mid/late stages awkward stack size
18-25bb is not a stack where you have to just shove or fold btw...if you are just playing this way and not defending, you're probably getting exploited. You're going to have players opening so wide where you should probably just shove most hands you're playing. Then you're going to have people playing more solid where you have decent hands that aren't profitable to shove or very borderline...nothing wrong with defending a pretty wide range, as long as you know what you're doing post flop. Pretty common to see good regs peel off of like 5-10bb these days too. People prob just take guidelines ...

3bet shoving/calling chart
yeah i mean if by feel you mean ranging someone based on how how they're playing etc...and calling accordingly then that's all good. If you mean when people reshove 84o because they feel a guy is light, it's not good. Like clutch said, fundamentals are an understanding of math. If you don't have a good idea on what you should be calling and reshoving, you likely don't have good thought processes and feel for the game. Tell an inexperienced player to go off feel for these spots and his ranges are going to be way off. It's really not ok to spew either. That's the difference from a good and ...

3bet shoving/calling chart
Get something like holdem resources calc where you can actually range guys...any chart for this would be pretty meh. I would not recommend going by feel. Going by feel is going to end up with you making some terrible folds/reshoves and just spewing in general.

Hand review final table WCOOP $100+$100+$15 No Limit Super KO
Pretty gross spot but if you played with jason at all you'd know he's as aggro as it gets. Vs most people i doubt they're 3betting to fold often....jason is just straight up spewy at times, so just have to get it in imo.

Screwing Busto_Soon like a boss lol
But in reality he probably doesn't even know you...and plays super solid in general. I would imagine he plays straight up all the way through an 11$ up until the end game. This is def just you leveling yourself. You just see the name, know he's a winning reg and spew off lol. There's no way you rationally thought this through before you did it.

how to get paid with quads
bet the flop...pretty good board for what he's defending. Guess you could check the turn but i'd still bet small to set up a shove on the river. Doubt i'm ever getting to the river with more than a psb left with 20bb, quads and position.

MTT - 40 left - Do we take this B v B spot?
hmm...what is this rock paper scissors model. Really just sounds like it's just guidelines to keep inexperienced players out of trouble. I mean there's software out there for these spots that make things you read from a book in 2008 obsolete. I read kill everyone too but times have changed. Yes it's obvious 20bb is a good stack to resteal with....but that doesn't mean you should pass on clear +ev spots like this so you can wait for a reshove spot. Calling a raise isn't necessarily bad on 15bb either. It is if you want to peel a utg open utg+1 with KQo. But peeling the bb speculatively on ...

MTT - 40 left - Do we take this B v B spot?
He shoved 18bb not 91. People open shove 18bb because they have a hand they don't want to r/c or r/f, it's a pretty standard play these days. Nobody does it with the top of their range. You just have to make the most profitable plays and move on...who cares about your future fold equity here. Not exactly a fist pump shove because he has some hands dominating you and most flipping, but yeah, still a really easy call.

Ride the wave or what with AJhh
Surprised so many people fold...is it because it's just a losing call to begin with or we want to reduce variance' "Not overly aggro" wouldn't be enough to make me fold here tbh. I can see it if the tourney is pretty soft, but i think if you're folding these spots in any fairly tough field vs a reg, it's probably a bad fold.

Def value bet for the reasons you said. Has to be a leak checking imo. His check back range could have a fair amount of AJ+, pairs
