I would say know your own ranges very well first. Know what a good default balanced strategy looks like. Range software is great for this (I use PokerRanger). Then analyze villain showdowns for deviations from this. Some hands won’t tell you much, but sometimes you get a tremendous amount of info from a single showdown.For instance, if you see someone rfi in the HJ and go bet 3/4, bet 3/4, check vs the big blind on a board of QhKh2s 4c 4h and he turns over Ah3c… You just got a ton of info. He’s got a wide rfi, he’s most likely cbetting flop too much (either by over bluffing or cbetting too merged given the sizing), and he missed a clear river bluff which means you can narrow down a river bet range in similar situations to mostly value hands.You want to identify when players miss 3bets, miss thin value, miss bluffs, overvalue their hands, overvalue protection, bet too merged, call light, overbluff a spot, tank way too long with a strong hand on the river (post flop nits)…I had a hand the other day where I called A9 in the bb vs a lj rfi, board came 78J with a flush draw villain checked back the flop, turn was blank and then villain delayed cbet. This guy was C betting the flop too merged, generally overvalued protection, and had a tendency to stab once on later streets. I called and he checked back the river with A3s (no flush draw). I could do this comfortably because if he’s betting off all his pairs on the flop he’s incredibly over bluffed in the delayed cbet line.

The recently concluded grudge match between Daniel Negreanu and Doug Polk created a lot of stir in the poker community and gave everyone hours’ worth of great, high stakes entertainment.
Polk came into the match as the favorite and walked away the winner after 25,000 hands, banking $1.2 million for his victory.
In the days following the conclusion of the HU challenge, many players shared their views of the match, among others Phil Hellmuth.
Hellmuth was supporting Negreanu from the get-go, but he wasn’t too happy about the final result and in a recent interview, the Poker Brat openly stated he was disappointed by the Canadian’s performance.
The short, two-minute segment, didn’t go unnoticed by Negreanu, who responded by challenging Hellmuth to a heads up match under his terms.
DNegs Quick to Respond to Phil’s Jab
Helllmuth’s short statement about Negreanu’s play also included not so thinly veiled brag about his own poker skills.
The way Phil explains it, Negreanu’s coaching team was recommended by him as he recognized them as very good and capable players.
However, Phil sent them Daniel’s way because they didn’t have much to teach him?
It seems Hellmuth is trying to suggest that he already knows everything Negreanu has spent months trying to learn and Polk spent years studying.
Daniel wasted no time responding to Phil, challenging him to a heads up match under any terms he wanted: live or online and for whatever number of hands he wanted to play.
It goes without saying that the poker community was thrilled to see the Canadian’s reaction, but will Hellmuth go for it?
Will There Be a Hellmuth vs. Negreanu HU Match?
Phil Hellmuth is known as an outspoken player who holds his own skills in very high regard. The whole Poker Brat attitude has been a part of his persona for years and helped him build a brand around his name.
But, facing an open challenge by Negreanu, what are the odds of Phil actually accepting?
Personally, I don’t think they are very high at all.
While Hellmuth loves to talk the talk, he’s not very likely to walk the walk in the situation where he must know he’s a big underdog. Even if the two had equal skills before the Negreanu – Polk challenge, Daniel has put in countless hours studying HU play and GTO.
DNegs was going into the grudge match against the odds and for that alone, he earned some respect from the community and from Polk himself.
At this moment in time, the skill gap in the particular format between Negreanu and Hellmuth could be even wider than it was between DNegs and Polk when the grudge match was announced.
Even Polk said after the match that he wouldn’t be as thrilled to play Negreanu again as he felt Daniel has improved a lot over the months of the challenge.
The Canadian would probably jump at the opportunity to play some one-on-one poker with the Poker Brat and put his newly found skills (that he paid dearly to acquire) to good use. Plus, the skirmish would likely be just as popular (if not more) as the original grudge match.
One Is Allowed to Dream
In the same video included earlier, Hellmuth boasted his heads-up skills, claiming he’d won 29 of his last 30 HU matches.
This is technically right, but these were all short battles, featuring no more than a few hundred poker hands.
In a prolonged match that would last 10,000+ hands, DNegs would have to be a clear favorite, just like Polk was against the Canadian.
And, to be completely honest, it seems really farfetched that the Poker Brat would accept to play Negreanu in this format. If anything, he might be up for a few hundred poker hands, which is far too small of a sample size to determine who the better player is.
One is allowed to hope, though.
If Hellmuth and Negreanu were somehow to come to an agreement for an actual, proper heads up match that would include the kind of coverage that we saw in the earlier challenge, it would be a real treat for the fans.
Both DNegs and Phil are in the group of the most popular poker players alive and their “grudge” match would attract hundreds of thousands of eyeballs.
Is it likely to happen? No, absolutely not – but we sure as hell root for it! And, if the match were to happen, who would you bet on and what odds do you think would be fair?
TLDR: GG’s leaderboard’s cash prizes encourage players to play the system, not the game. Cheapening and worsening the game experience for non leaderboard grinders. It forces you to abuse the system if you want to get close to the top.Firstly, this is not a complaint about nit regs that eek out an meagre existence playing 2nl or other micro stakes, they’re annoying but exploitable on every site. It is an issue I’ve found that where GG’s leaderboard policy makes the games worse.For those that don’t play on GG, you get points for playing rush and cash(zoom) and the more points you gain, the higher up the leader board you go. You get 1 point for folding, 3 points for calling and 5 for betting/raising and 5 for using the insurance feature up to a maximum of 20 points per hand. You can get double points for playing from 10pm-11:59pm PST or 10 bonus points for winning in splash pots(rare). The prizes for coming first range from 30 buy ins($60) at 2nl to 5 buy ins($1000) at 200nl.I started looking into this issue was then I started playing a decent amount on GG in January. I began to notice these weird players that would bet 1bb on every street, even ending up on the river with K high. At first I thought they were bots or really confused fish. For example, you would raise preflop on the btn they would call in bb and then donk flop for 1bb and just keep betting every street for 1bb. If you raise the flop and they call, they will then donk turn again for 1bb to get 5 points for betting each street. Basically, they change how you can even approach the game as they are not playing a poker strategy, they are playing a win the leaderboard strategy. This is especially bad at micros (I only play 2nl but you will see why it must be an issue at other stakes too)Yesterday, I got 3208 points and played 1,318 hands over 2.62 hs for roughly: 2.5 points per hand or 1225 points per hour playing 2-3 tables at around 510 hands per hour(these numbers seem normal, having checked other sessions). Most I have ever got is 670 hands per hour playing 3 tables. I doubt these players hit that many hands per hour as they 4 table(max limit) or even 8 table rush and cash(4x2NL & 4x2PLO)These players are getting a seemingly impossible number of points per hour for someone playing normal poker, even using insurance on every all in(which I never do). If they manage to get 1000 hands per hour(double my average) meaning 2450 points per hour, it would take yesterdays(13 feb) 2NL leaderboard winner with 64,140 points over 24 hours(even with x2 point hours). This problem seems to exist in the leaderboard even until 50NL where yesterdays winner had a slightly more reasonable 47,340 points. However, I can only comment on the exact play style of the 2NL leaderboard grinders.As a college student on a break and in lockdown, I was tempted to do a big grind as a challenge to see what was possible on the leaderboard and potentially use it to boost my bankroll. So its kind of demotivating to see I either need to: play for 24 hours straight to get top 10, or abuse the system and play a nitty loosing poker strategy(you can loose 10 buy ins and still profit in the top 7) but a winning leaderboard strategy.On a side note, anyone have tips on how to counter their playstyle? I try to avoid playing with them when I can, but they can sometimes make up 40% of the ‘player’ pool due to 4 tabling. The only way to get value from them is to cooler them or play a more passive line to get some small value on later streets when they believe I am bluffing.Graph to show im not a salty fish that lost money to the leaderboard nits

Usually when someone asks if gambling will ever be legalized across the States of America, there has always been two holdouts that would prevent it. Utah, being the home of the Mormon Church, has banned any type of gambling inside the state’s borders, even lotteries. Hawaii used to be the other state in that answer, but there are moves to open the islands for gambling and lottery sales that are currently at a roadblock.
Casino, Lottery Sales in Legislation
According to Dan Nakaso of the Honolulu Star-Adviser, the chances of a bill passing through the Hawaii House of Representatives took several blows last week. There were three bills that had been proposed by State Representative Sean Quinlan, who chairs the House Economic Development Committee. The three bills would have each addressed a different area of gaming in the Aloha State.
The first was House Bill 383, which would have created a state-run poker commission that would have jurisdiction over live poker rooms in the state. The second was House Bill 772, which would have allowed for the building of a casino at the Hawaii Convention Center that would only be accessible by players who had stayed in an Oahu hotel. Finally, there was House Bill 736, which would have given the framework for digital sports betting (mobile).
The Senate also had their own bills floating around their chambers. Senate Bill 816 would have created the ability for the state to facilitate a lottery that would have begun in January 2022. The bill passed out of the Senate Education Committee, but it was amended by the chairwoman of the committee, Senator Michelle Kidani, to take effect in January 2023 instead. An additional casino proposal in the Senate, Senate Bill 1321, is also on the table, but has yet to pass out of committee.
What Would be the Impact of Legalized Gaming on Hawaii?If you are looking at just the residents of Hawaii, gaming might not be significantly impactful. With only 1.42 million residents, they are barely above the size of Delaware (a state which has a multitude of gaming operations) and less than Nevada. With this said, a study showed that there are 500,000 trips from Hawaii to Las Vegas every year, a sizeable amount of traffic that cannot be ignored.
The real draw of gaming in Hawaii would be the tourism industry. Over seven million people visit the Hawaiian Islands on a yearly basis simply for what the islands have to offer now. While there might be a decrease in some areas of tourism if casino gaming were allowed (people wouldn’t be taking the sightseeing trips and other accoutrements), having casino gaming and other options available could raise significant revenues.
There is a downside of the situation, however, and it is something that we have been dealing with for the past year – COVID. Already dependent on tourism for much of their revenues, why would Hawaii commit to another arena that is driven by people gathering in an area and potentially get sick? The moves by the bicameral legislature in Hawaii are significant in that they are examining the issue of gaming heavily. But even those in charge say that there is no possibility of passage of these laws, at least in 2021. The discussion is there, however, so it may be something that nobody has any control over as to when it will happen – the passage of time and the acceptance of gaming in the state.
Sabalenka, a nine-time winner on the WTA Tour, and Swiatek, the reigning French Open champion, are the latest in a long string of polished phenoms threaded through Williams’s career. One of the biggest stars to emerge, Naomi Osaka, saved two match points to beat Garbiñe Muguruza on Sunday. Still, from Jennifer Capriati and Monica Seles to Maria Sharapova and Sloane Stephens, Williams has watched many young talents come and go and, on occasion, stray far from tennis.A sport with a history of suffocating its young has not stifled Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam champion in singles whose love for the game seems to have deepened over time. Against Sabalenka, she studied a page of written notes during changeovers as if she were back in high school. She fiddled with her “Queen” necklace. She dug balls out of the corners and ran from side to side as if she were on a school blacktop at recess.Darren Cahill, one of Halep’s coaches, described Williams’s movement as the best he had seen from her “in a long, long time” and said, “If you can stay in more points and get more balls back, stay alive, then she’s got the power to turn those points around.”What Williams is doing is also inconceivable to the younger Americans, three of whom have followed her into the second week. Marveled, one of the three, the 28-year-old Shelby Rogers: “What she’s been able to accomplish is absolutely incredible because some days I wake up now and I’m like, ‘OK, I’m not 21 anymore.’”Williams’s serve usually allows her to win her share of easy points. But against Sabalenka, her main weapon continually misfired. Williams put 52 percent of her first serves in play and recorded eight double faults, including one in the fifth game of the third set, which gave Sabalenka two break points.

Daniil Medvedev, the fourth seed, struggled in his third round matchup against Filip Krajinovic, losing the third and fourth sets in spectacular fashion. Medvedev cycled between yelling at himself in Russian, his coach in French, and Krajinovic’s well placed volleys in English. In the fifth set, Medvedev settled back in and won six straight games.For McDonald to pull off an upset, he will need to exploit Medvedev’s natural volatility. Medvedev should be able to keep McDonald at bay if he can keep calm and use his varied shots to pull the American around the edges of the court.Rod Laver Arena | 11 p.m. SundayRafael Nadal vs. Fabio FogniniRafael Nadal, the No. 2 seed, has struggled with a small back injury throughout the first week of the Australian Open. However, this has not stopped him from rolling past his opposition without dropping a set. Nadal’s powerful topspin shots have consistently pushed his opponents around the court, depriving them of the time necessary to impose their own ideas upon a rally.Fabio Fognini, the 16th seed, has had a roller coaster week. He struggled in a five-set contest against a fellow Italian, Salvatore Caruso, but then dispatched the 21st seed, Alex de Minaur, in just three sets. Fognini, who won a doubles title at the Australian Open in 2015, has been to the round of 16 in Melbourne four times, and will have a difficult time overcoming Nadal.Rod Laver Arena | 3 a.m. MondayAshleigh Barty vs. Shelby RogersAshleigh Barty, the world No. 1, has moved through to the fourth round without dropping a set. In her third round victory over Ekaterina Alexandrova she played smart tennis, not going for big shots and allowing Alexandrova to overplay and extracting 30 unforced errors.Shelby Rogers, an unseeded player, has reached two major quarterfinals, but has never won a WTA tournament. Her inconsistency on tour can partially be blamed on ruptured cartilage in her knee, which required surgery in 2018.Barty and Rogers faced off in the quarterfinals of the Yarra Valley Classic last week, with Barty winning in a third-set tiebreaker. For Rogers to reverse her fortunes, she’ll need to play aggressively without over-hitting, a tough needle to thread.

With a 100 big blind effective stack, you open-raise to 3bbs in the Cutoff seat and get called by the player in the Big Blind.
This scenario shows a common spot where you are in position against a tough opponent in the Big Blind on the flop after you were the preflop aggressor.
Against a less-skilled opponent automatically c-betting a standard size is often the best play. These types of opponents are less likely to put pressure on your c-bets by making moves on the flop.
Against tougher players you’ll need to focus on board texture to determine the best continuation bet sizing and identify flops where checking behind will be the best play. Generally you can use smaller c-bet sizes on dry, static flops that don’t have many equity changing turn cards. For example, larger c-bet sizing is not required on a flop of rainbow.
On more coordinated boards that still favor you as the raiser, such as with a flush draw, you can use a larger c-bet sizing. Tough opponents will have robust check-raising ranges as part of their overall Big Blind Defense strategy, so be aware of not over folding hands with too much equity when your c-bet gets check-raised.
You will often be put to tough decisions with marginal hands, with the correct decision often coming down to understanding the effects of blockers. If you hold cards that interfere with your opponent’s ability to have strong hands, you should be more likely to call down in the hand. If your cards interfere with their ability to have bluffs, you should be more likely to fold.
