HokieGreg Hyper Turbo Class Video Pack

HokieGreg Hyper Turbo Class Video Pack

This pack contains over 6 hours of hyper turbo strategy, from a top coach and player in hyper turbo husngs. Topics such as population tendencies are covered in great depth, or how to play against an unknown opponent early on in the match with no information. The topics branch into how to make bayesian type decisions as information starts to become available, and eventually into adjusting and exploiting your opponent's specific characteristics.

There is a great deal of focus on questions from $10-100 level hyper players in these videos as well.

To make it easier to study outside of the video, we've included spreadsheets and chart images with each purchase.

About Greg

Greg has been playing poker professionally since 2007. His screen name on PokerStars was HokieGregHU and his screen name on Revolution is HokieGreg. Prior to Black Friday, Greg was playing turbos up to the highest levels Stars offered. After Black Friday, Greg switched to hyper turbos. Below are his hyper turbo results that covers the last ~9 months.

HokieGreg Revolution Hyper Turbo Poker Stats For Group Class

  • Day 1 - Preflop Hyper Play
  • Day 2 - Postflop Hyper Play
  • Day 3 - Beating Hyper HU SNGs
  • 4 extra Bonus HokieGreg VIP Staking Program Q&A Session Videos
You will also gain access to the following Documents from HokieGreg Classes
  • Bayseian Estimator
  • Class Calculations
  • Population Tendencies
  • Pre-Flop Charts
More Details and clips from the 3 main Videos

Day 1 - Preflop Hyper Play

  • "Readless" Play: Hokiegreg defines population tendencies and reviews their practical use in-game. Greg also reviews some pre-made sample population tendencies for unknown players. These population tendencies are the basis for the default ranges throughout the rest of the class.
  • Bayesian Estimators: Greg reviews how to combine small samples of hands versus individual opponents with population tendencies. 'Bayesian Estimator' is kind of an intimidating term, but it is relatively common sense actually. Greg makes this complex yet important topic a little easier to understand by reviewing a few examples.
  • Maximally Exploitative Play: A few common HUSNG myths are debunked before moving forward.
  • Small Blind Default Ranges and General Adjustments: With significant reference to population tendencies, Greg looks at several charts at a variety of stack depths. He specifically focuses on how to play better than NASH vs the population 3BB deep to mr/calling ranges at 25BB. Additional discussion includes: When and why we should limp weak hands vs passive opponents, how to adjust versus aggressive 3-bettors and how to adjust versus very passive and/or nitty opponents.
  • Big Blind Default Ranges and General Adjustments: Again, referencing population tendencies, Greg reviews more charts covering all possible stack depths. Additional discussion includes: 3bet bluffing "readless", adjusting our flatting range vs varying opening ranges, and a brief review of limp raising ranges and sizings.

Day 2 - Postflop Hyper Play

Day 2 consists of numerous hand examples, math explanations, and more emphasis on using population tendencies to our advantage.

  • C-Betting: Greg discusses how to use cbet sizes to setup profitable stack to pot ratios (with hand examples at multiple stack depths). Also, there is a focus on cbet and barreling math.
  • Barreling: Greg focuses on how to barrel differently vs regs and fish and the math behind this.
  • ValueBet sizing: During this time discussion covers optimal value-bet sizing. Greg touches on why we do not automatically maximize value simply by getting called more often. The video also includes examples of value-betting the river with 3 different sizes and the math behind it.
  • Facing C-Bets/Barrels: To help with this, Greg has extensive population tendency discussion. He discusses how to adjust our OOP strategy for nittier or more aggressive opponents. He does this with hand examples and conceptual discussions.
  • C/R Bluffing + Barreling: Greg will show how often a c/r bluff needs to work with different sizings. This will be based on population tendency + gameflow discussion. He has a few hand examples discussing continuing or shutting down our bluffs on the turn.
  • Playing draws oop: Greg shows several hand examples at different stack depths. He focuses on deep stacks vs regs who usually have a wide cbet and deep vs fish who often have a tight cbet. There's also focus on shorter stacks vs either opponent.

Day 3 - Beating Hyper HU SNGs

On Day 3 Greg reviews several games in the PT4 hand replayer with heavy emphasis on proper use of the CoffeeHUD.

The first few matches reviewed have very small (or no) sample sizes vs our opponents. There is a heavy focus on population tendencies early on in the matches and bayesian estimators are used to adjust as sample sizes vs our opponents grow.

The last match reviewed is against an opponent that we have a much larger sample size against. This will allow more specific adjustments to the individual opponent, as opposed to playing against the population.

 

4 Bonus Videos in this Pack

In the first two bonus videos, HokieGreg reviews hands against different villains. He discusses his range for calling all in 3bets against opponents that shove frequently.

In the bonus videos three and four, Greg does a session on his charts to break down the best action based on your hand, position and stack depth.

Day 3 video and additional stats

Just bought the course and think it's awesome.  Had 2 questions/requests:

1. For the "Day 3" video, instead of a video downloading it seems to open an amazon hosted link that is non-responsive.  Can I get a link to download the video or instructions on how to view it?

2. The preflop population tendency stats provided are useful, but in order to produce preflop maximally exploitative ranges like Hokiegreg produces in the video in CREV, more stats are needed.  The central theme of the video is producing these ranges on your own and updating based on Bayesian inference, and I'm new to poker so don't really have a robust stat set on my opponents yet, so I wanted to jump on this forum and request these stats:

-SB call shove (after limp and BB shove)

​-SB call raise (after limp)

-SB shove (after limp and BB raise)

-BB call open shove

-BB call 4B

​-BB raise (after SB limp)

-BB C3B (after SB limp and raise)

 

Thanks for the great video

Hey RyPac13

In video 1 HokieGreg breaks down population tendencies for hyper sngs at the $60 stake based on his (and other pros?) pokertracker/hem database stats.  The central theme of the video is using these kind of core stats as a base and adjusting them using Bayesian inference as you play and you see your opponents tendencies.  HokieGreg suggests using a tool like ICMizer or Cardrunners EV (CREV) to perform these updated calculations, however the pokertracker database stats provided are insufficient to perform them, so I wanted to request those an additional stats.

Training

 Just bought the pack and was wondering if there is a site anyone knows of that I could practice on while learning what's on the course as money is a bit tight at moment and don't want to blow it all before I'm comfortable with what's on course.

Play money opponents tend to

Play money opponents tend to "just go random/crazy/all in" way too often. I would at least gather $50-100 and play at the $3 levels, where rake isn't too crazy and opponents aren't too good but are actually playing to win.

Yes, it's not too over the head of a beginner at all.

Hello, i've just purchased

Hello, i've just purchased the pack and i already have a question.There're 2 videos for day 1, i see that they are actually the same, but probably recorded differently or in another format. So, i firstly started from the original video (day 1), but the sound quality is quite bad and it was difficult to understand at times, and in the video materials are very small,so i had hard time seeing it. I thought it was fixed in (day 1_new) and probably it was, but i have only sound without video, tried on different players - the same result. What is the final version and, if it's the latter, what player do i need to watch it? Thanks for your reply.

RyPac13's picture

Hi, Try using

Hi,

Try using http://player.gomlab.com/eng/download/ GomPlayer for the avi version of day 1 and let me know if that works for you.

MaximSerik's picture

That was the very first

That was the very first player i tried, no result - only sound. Updated the version and still the same it requires some codecs.

P.S. Ok, problem solved, don't know what the problem was, updated some codecs and now it works with KMPlayer, with Gom Player still no result, but doesn't matter. Looking forward to watching the pack!

About the standard deviation

Standard deviation came up couple of times as a question in these videos and the answers kind of didn't give any actual way of measuring what it means that something doesn't happen very often.. I think one useful way to think about standard deviation is that for Gaussian standard deviation of x would mean that approximately 68% of individuals in our population belong between mean - x and mean + x.

 

So if he we have the minraise percentage of 50% 20bb deep, we could get a standard deviation of 10% if we thought that 68% of the population do have a minraise percentage between 40% and 60% and 32% of the population are under or over that.

No playback on WDTV Media Player or Xbox 360

The day 1-3 vids neither play on WDTV Media Player nor on Xbox 360. Both devices support mp4 files. The bonus vids work fine!

I really want to watch the vids on my TV. Is it really so hard to choose a format which common media players support? Any advice is appreciated

RyPac13's picture

I don't know why it wouldn't

I don't know why it wouldn't work, it is an MP4 file created in camtasia studio like our other ones.

I'll try to get a re-render when I can.

Hi, i'm not a beginner but i

Hi, i'm not a beginner but i was interested in whether this pack has much emphasis on using PT4? Primarily interested in how Greg uses PT4...  as whilst i'm pretty familiar with hud settings etc i'm not sure how to go about anyalising my game and pop tendances etc with PT4 being a former HEM user...

Thanks

From Greg: "Good

From Greg:

"Good question. 
 
Throughout the video pack, I go into extensive detail analyzing the statistics used in the PT4 CoffeeHUD. I use the population tendencies of the average player at PokerStars $60 hypers. 
 
The first 2 days of the class are spent discussing how to develop a maximally exploitative (make the most money possible on each decision) strategy using the $60 level population tendencies. It is important to note that the strategy developed in this class is only specifically suitable to the $60 hypers (maybe $30s and $100s too). However, I do suggest you use the methods I used in developing my strategy to create your own for your specific buyin level. 
 
I am confident that a HEM-user would still find value in this video package. While you may not use the CoffeeHUD and your statistics are labelled different in a lot of cases, the method I use to develop a max. exploitative strategy should still be pretty much the same! I hope that answers your question!"

Hey thanks for the reply.

Hey thanks for the reply! Looks just what I'm looking for tbh and I use pt4 and coffeehud(though mainly for out of game analysis). Switched from hem a while ago and finding reports etc are different to what I'm used to so this looks perfect and would much prefer to learn how to anylyse my own database then follow others.

video one

Just updated to the latest VLC player and video one still has sound only with the husng splash screen. Works ok on my android phone though.

Videos 2 and 3 seem to be ok.

day one video

Is this supposed to be audio only with other than the husng splashscreen for the whole video?

RyPac13's picture

The audio should just be for

The audio should just be for the first section of video 1, not the entire video. There should be some slides on video 1 later on.

Review

I also attended this live, it was the first I class I have joined but I am very happy that I did because the value from this was so good. One thing though this isn`t for the beginner, but you don`t need to know much about hypers before this is really good for your game.

hhminer's picture

I attended this live and am

I attended this live and am very content by the result. Preflop charts are very good in my opinion and fixed some big leaks I was having in this area. This alone made up for the participation fee. Definitely found useful food for thought in all the other topics but preflop charts are the main attraction for me in this package.

slon144's picture

why is the sound quality so

why is the sound quality so bad?


RyPac13's picture

It's a little echo like yes,

It's a little echo like yes, because the original files were almost 1GB each in raw WMV, and we had no choice but to change them because some new audio had to be added to the files (and the files were going to be too large to release at 3GB total). So we added some new audio, added the bonus videos, made sure all the visual charts were included in the release and so on.

The next time we do a class we'll have multiple recorders for it. The recorder we had for this class recording had some giant monitor with 4k x 2k type resolution, which further complicated matters.

Also, the preview video that you're talking about, the sound quality in the final videos will be similar to that. It might be a touch better since it's not having to be uploaded to youtube and them played from there, but expectations should be in line with the videos in the previews.

codecs

For me it's the first version that works. The second one uses the camtasia codec for video and even VLC can't read it. I think it would help for quality to directly record into the codecs it's gonna be distributed in ( so with another software than camtasia) next time, so you don't loose quality in the transcoding process.

RyPac13's picture

The issue was that the

The issue was that the camtasia recordings failed (my computer HD died during day 1 of the 3 day class), so we had to rely on the group meeting software built in recording, which was poor, combined with the backup recorder's monitor resolution which was massive. Working with that file was less than ideal.
