I used the peak button just for curiosity purposes (as I mentioned in the video), and every time I used that I folded.

Re:

Yes, I heard. :-) I think it's a bad thing in the training video for beginners players because they start "attach importance quads/flush royal etc". But for professional-players it's nothing. :-)

fun concept video! guess

fun concept video! guess it can be a useful tool to increase focus on board texture and betting patterns.. but kinda hard when you cant play back at any check raises or limp-shoves :)

Very true Don!  I think the single most important part of it was focusing on the player type for me.  It really puts you in a place where you can predict their actions most of the time, even more so than usual. As long as you have a plan based on that before hand, you should be set.

I liked the vid but I think that it is more suited to playing a star's reg speed. That way the blinds are lower for longer and you can get in more spots where there is actually play involved, instead of blindly jamming for 1/3 of the vid. Also a cool way to use the hole card blocker is every hand decide on a range that you put your opponent on post flop based on his action then decide on a range of hands that you would do a certain action and then look and act accordingly. When you get c/raised in the video and have to fold no matter what its not really helping that much.
