My NOOBish questions for the PROs
July 9, 2012 - 17:51
I am starting with the hypers and I have few simple questions so if there is any good soul to answer them I will be very happy :) I will be also making the first deposit to pokerstars using the HUSNG bonus code, so I should be a member in no time if that changes anything. I didnt want to spam the whole forum with questions so I just posted it all in one place.
1.) I was playing fullring SNG's so far and I have a pretty large database for Holdem Manager. However this is from another poker site. Should I create a new database purely for hyperturbos on pokerstars, to make it more simple?
2.) Do you set preffered seating on pokerstars? (Cause I saw chaders and he didnt)
3.) Should I write my notes to Holdem Manager or pokerstars? I used to write it to HM, but again I saw chaders writing it into pokerstars. And also, your HM doesnt pop up the first hand, so there is some value lost.
4.) When playing against fish, isnt raising to t42 or t43 more profitable than minraising? fish may see it as a more "normal" raise than just clickraising and we may get some more fold equity.
5.) Why does chaders advice to 3b shove AK but 3b to100-120 KQ. When playing fish, they will also flat us with lots of aces with wich we can than stack off if an Ace hits the board.
6.) a.) When I played SNG's I doomed myself by multitabling, I just couldnt find the right rythm for it, and got into a very bad autopilot and my ROI decreased super drasticly, while I was still supposed to be learning the game. Its also one of the reasons why I quit it.What I like about HUsng's is that it is incredibly more live and thrilling than the tight boring fullring SNG game. But I am afraid I will ruin this pleasure and enthusiasm as soon as I will start 2 tabling, so I really just want to stay with one table FOREVER :D. How long would you recomend me to stay with one table and what would you recomend me concerning my "fobia" from multitabling :P?
b.) Are there any good regs that just one table and still reach a good $/hour? What is a possible $/hour for single tabling 100$ reg? ( Do you count it like this?: if I suppose I will play 20 100$ hyperturbo's an hour with f.e. 5% ROI, it will be 100*20*0.05= 100$/hour??)
Also just for the motivation, does anyone know what $/hour is Serkules getting on the 1000's? :P Cause with the calculations above it would be like 600 $/hour if he plays 15 games an hour with 4% ROI.
Thanks in advance for any replies

Welcome to the forums! 1) I
Welcome to the forums!
1) I think this is ideal, for simplicity sake, and also so you aren't wasting space having HEM cycle through all your 9 man opponents when you have a HUD up or are looking for HU stats.
2) I used to prefer the left, others prefer the right, to each their own, but yes I find it helpful to have a preferred side.
3) I would put it on PokerStars and just put the most essential stuff (very loose OOP, 3bets a lot of weaker hands like 43/76/52o, checked back A hi and K hi hands, slowplays the strongest stuff even on draw heavy boards and cbets everything else... etc.), don't put stuff like "calls with K7o OOP" or "3bets AJs" if your HUD is going to tell you that type of thing (3bet % is 20%, you'll assume AJs is being 3bet, if his call % is 60%, you'll assume he's calling with K7o, etc.).
4) I don't think it's worth inputting individual numbers. If you can automate it, maybe it's better, to throw them off a bit, make people feel a bit different, but it can work both ways (they can focus more because it's a non standard number, and then play better because of the added focus).
5) I assume he says that because The Q in KQ is more disguised than the A in Ax and therefore gets you more action postflop when you flop a queen, yet can still take advantage of "representing" the ace if you miss on Ax boards. I wouldn't 3bet jam AK and small 3bet KQ though, I'd 3bet them both the same in most situations, I think the extra value and dominating factor vs small Ax hands that might fold to the jam trumps the added deception value of KQ. Is that in his video pack, individual video or forum post? I'll ask him about it, it might make interesting discussion.
6) While most high stakes pros multi table, the most successful person by over 2x profits in his total career (at 3.5 mil or so), livb112/adonis112 has primarily 1 tabled his entire career. I've heard of a few other really good players doing that too. I was mostly a 2 tabler when playing regularly and competitively, but I found value in 1 table more often than 3 or 4 (though in super or hyper turbos I found it easier to play 3 and 4, especially vs the same opponent). I would suggest playing 1 table if that's what you like, you're not losing out on money if you're not particularly adept at 2 tabling, and you probably aren't losing out on value if you're focused on one table and not autopiloting.
b) livb/adonis answers that, you can make 3.5 million if you're the best ;)
Serkules #s sound about right, I'll see if he can answer himself though.

There is no need to create a
There is no need to create a new database, sicne HEM allows you to filter after speed AND site.

Serkules said he plays more
Serkules said he plays more games per hour when he has action, however, he waits for action a lot of times, so his true hourly is going to be lower than your estimate.
He's curious though how long he waits for games, is there any program that tracks the wait time as well as playing time?
