Here is the second in this pair of videos from veteran video producer Fydor_8 in which he reviews two hyper turbo games played against unfamiliar opponents. Although the games reviewed are short, Fydor explains his decisions in a lot of detail, providing viewers with a lot of valuable advice on playing against population tendencies as well as spending a few minutes after the game is over to discuss some tips on reviewing, note taking and adjusting to opponent tendencies. The first video in this two-part series is available here.

Naive

The statement that "all you can do is get it in when you are ahead" is, as I think you probably know, inaccurate.

I am almost finished an extensive audit of spots in Pokerstars heads up hyperturbos.

My insights into the actually truth behind who will win a hand meant that as soon as I saw the hole cards in this spot I knew you were, in actual fact, behind.

i began this process because after playing many thousands of hyperturbo games I began to get strong instincts as to which card was about to hit and was often right. Statistically it amounted to "just knowing" you were going to get dealt Aces preflop. However, we never get this feeling as the preflop shuffle is purely random. But you do get that feeling post flop. And often you are right.

Response to 3onthego

The thing you're talking about is paranoia and fear. Since you remember the times you got drawn out more then the times that you draw out you begin to look for evidence in totally random patterns.

That is my random opinion after 30k HU hypers.

I'm interested that a new user who has played 30K HU chooses this to be one of their first posts.

Hello Pokerstars.

What you're describing sounds

What you're describing sounds like confirmation bias. How did you run your audit?

I could tell you how to work

I could tell you how to work it out but I don't want to at the moment.

how about you post some preflop all in hands with out the outcome of the flop turn and river invisible & I will tell you who won every time.

:D

How many runs are you going to make?

For your information there are regs who can get in 15k games in a month in 15s/30s.

You are even more paranoid then I assumed. So that you'd know Stars isn't all powerful :D

I'm not paranoid at all. I can just usually predict the outcome of an all in once the hole cards are exposed :)

What I have noticed is that the style of play changes the higher the stakes you play as players become aware, either consciously or subconsciously, that they are having to make decisions based on both their opponent's and the software's tendencies :)

This explains why the games don't actually just reduce to an exercise in Nash which is the case even @ the $100's (see the Maths in Poker video series by Coffeeyay). 

The games should reduce themselves to GTO when both players are competent. But they don't and there is a reason for that.

And it is not my "paranoia" :)

Holding bluff catcher vs polarised river bet?

Tough spot.

I feel like your response has polarised your position between deluded fish & genius troll. 

Perhaps so much so that you have made me indifferent and I no longer strictly prefer responding to ignoring. 

Cdon erred on the side of laziness, folded & did not post some preflop hands.

Why not?

You are clearly the least lazy person on this site.

Just tell me the hole cards and their associated stack sizes, the blind level and who shoved or 3bet shoved and I will tell you who most likely won.

And it won't necessarily be the best hand ;)

Easy peasy lemon sqeezy.

You assume I am comfortable

You assume I am comfortable playing knowing what I now know.

I am not. And I feel that players have a right to know what is what.

LOL. Another new user who has never posted a post.

I think your posts are

I think your posts are attracting users to posting here. I wouldn't be so paranoid, I mean one of these "new posters" (but long timer users) I do know actually. I think anyone can get carried away in this game due to a variety of things. It's hard to keep the luck vs skill vs "just make good decisions" in line mentally... it goes against human nature.

But it's also why poker is so profitable. Nobody wants to bet all their stack vs all your stack with nothing already committed on a 40-60... at least not knowingly... 

You just have to work on being the shark, being the guy that cares more about his own decisions than about the short term result, block the paranoia from your head, it does you no good (even if you're right... the only solution would've been to quit...).
