​It would be great to post a more detailed description. Now in the contents I see nothing about preflop.

​That's quite pricey for 30min of theory and 90min of gameplay. What kind of charts will be available?

Sorry about the confusion.

Sorry about the confusion. There are over 50 slides and charts included with purchase. These charts and slides should be viewed prior to watching any of the videos, as they cover fundamental preflop theory and flop strategies.

The videos then demonstrate these concepts in action.

I am updating the description to better reflect this point, as your question was very valid because usually video packs just have slides/charts included that are from the actual videos, whereas this pack includes material that is not seen in the videos, as Alex felt it would make for more effective learning.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

The ranges you talk about are

The ranges you talk about are going to have more detail, they both weighted and include every single BB from 5-25bb, whereas the charts Alex has in this pack are unweighted and cover 8, 10, 12.5, 15, 20 and 25bb increments.

The ones you link to are more for intensive studying, whereas Alex's pack is designed to pack you in the most relevant and helpful information in the shortest period of time.

I've added two re-edited live play videos to the downloads page. They are embeded there.

I reedited these due to some users having issues seeing bet sizes and stats on small screens. These edits should take care of those issues. Let me know if you still have any issues, you can reach me directly rypac13@husng.com.

Full screen is checked on the vimeo backend, but for some reason isn't showing up. I'm guessing it might have to do with the privacy.

I've enlarged the embed in the meantime for you.

9:54 video 1

Nice pack.

At 9:54 in the video, in the minraised pot on the 7d6d2h board, you clicked on the 97o combos in simple. It showed something like bet 3.5BB 80%, bet small tiny %, and check back 10%. Three part question...1) Why are we checking back sometimes here with 97o? Is it for balance? 2)How do we decide when we do add in the check back? Is it based on certain particular Sevens or Nines? 3) Im assuming that we can ignore this vs rec (or someone that calls too wide, ect) and go for value basically every time?

Thanks,

waldie

You should think of how the

You should think of how the equilbrium comes down. In position will start out betting 100% of its 7x for straight value on this flop. Then it will have very few strong hands in its checkback range, and the OOP gto will start leading super light on turns when IP checks back. Since OOP is leading so light, IP will now start making more money checking back toppairs, and starts checking all toppairs. OOP then stops leading ridic wide and so forth, until they finally reach a balanced equilbrium strategy.

If your opponent does not lead enough turns, or overcall flops, as a lot of recreational players do, we should never check any top pairs. The reason we check 79 specifically is because we want to check back the 9x that misses out the least amount of value by not betting the flop. So with the 9 we block our opponent from having T9/95/89. These are all hands we would get value from.

Awesome thank you. I didn't

Awesome thank you. I didn't know thats how it reached its conclusion, equilibrium wise i mean. 
 

Ok. Let me make sure im understanding this concept. I really appreciate the help. (ive never thought about it this way)

...vs a perceptive opponent, ect., solid...we need to have some (see equilibrium) 7x in our check back range here. And when deciding which ones (which 7x), we decide to pick the 79 specifically, because it means its less hands they could continue vs our bet with that we get value from (because of the T9, 95, 89 combos having a "9") versus say a K7 where the King isnt blocking anything of value.

Correct?

i know it may seem redundant, but i really appreciate it

Yes so at some point opponent

Yes so at some point opponent leads out enough turns that some of our toppairs start making more money with a checkback. K7 is not likely to become a check as it has so much ev with a bet. 97 is among the first te become a check as explained it misses out on the least value. Same if ur gonna check back trips on like 554, you will check your weakest trips, as they miss out the least value.

Now never do this stuff just for the sake of balance. You don't need to be balanced vs most opponents. Try to play each hand individually as profitably as possible. If your opponent is very good this will make you balanced. If he's not very good you should be unbalanced.

Min-raising J8o and iso'ing J7o

Hi,

Very nice pack!

I saw you make two plays I wouldn't expect regs to make vs recreational player / readless:

1) Why did you min-raise J8o at 22:30 (on the HUSNG download page, original vid has slightly different timings) in the second gameplay video ?

Villain is a rec, and you don't have many stats on him right?

2) Why did you iso J7o at 22:42 (same vid)? You don't seem to have many reads on this rec.

I can't find the hands that you're talking about. Is this in the video that starts with Q5s hand?

 

J8o is a hand that flops relatively well in 20bb poker, it flops top pairs a fair amount. Ideally I would like to minraise anything reasonably playable (67o+, most suited, K5o+), as you play a bigger pot in position. So if my opponent allows this I will do it, but I add in limping if he becomes to aggressive.

I see now that both hands

I see now that both hands aren't in the final video pack, but are in the video's that were placed on HUSNG's download page for people who bought the pack. The latter zoomed video's were placed there because some people had issues seeing the bet sizes and HUD stats in the final pack.

Anyway, I see why you min-raised J8o now. Would you also min-raise all weak Ax vs fish?

The J7o hand (which isn't in the final pack) you iso 3x at 16BB vs a fish. What could be your reasoning behind it?

Ty!

If im playing an opponent

If im playing an opponent that 3bets me with an honest range I will minraise all Ax as I have preflop fold equity and play a bigger pot in position. Now since the low Ax don't play great postflop and are in trouble vs a 3bet, there is numerous reasons that would make me start limping it: villain 3bets too much, villain donks out pot on every flop etc. Totally readless I open most Ax.

 

I can't find the exact hand with j7o, but I would raise this hand if i have a reason to believe I get credit for a strong range in this particular spot, and J7o has some postflop playability.

Alright, one more

Alright, one more question.

At 31:14 you say it's pretty standard to check back 94cc on 843css. Why do you think it is?

The flop doesn't hit a flatting range hard, so we don't have to worry too much about being behind, while we need protection against the many overcards Villain has.

And this hand is at 34:12 in the video that starts with Q5cc.

Any input is much appreciated!

Its close, there's a few

Its close, there's a few considerations here:

While its a solid valuebet and our hand does need protection, its also a minraised pot. SPR is shallower, and in this case villain is more likely to jam any 8x, some 4x and draws over my cbet. Having to bet/fold 49cc here is absolutely horrendous as we're wasting so much equity. This should be avoided almost at all cost. At the same time its a great hand for our checkback range, as we can easily call a bet on almost any turn and we have some backdoor equity, a lot of turn cards are good for our hand. 

So you have to weigh these considerations against eachother. If im playing a loose passive opponent who will only raise legit hands here, I'm happy to bet/fold this hand. If I'm playing someone who has a more balanced check/raising range here, I will get into too much trouble betting here, and put it in my checkback range.

Hope that gives you a better idea of how to approach these spots, let me know if you have any more questions.

We don't need much of a limp

We don't need much of a limp shove range, maybe some offsuit Ax. Pocket pairs are usually just a limp/flat in gto ranges. And against fish I think you rarely want to limp shove unless its a specific gameflow spot, as you will almost always be able to gain a bigger edge postflop.

Win %

I'm looking to order the HU hyper turbo content and play hypers on ACR. I was just wondering if you a good reg HU hyper turbo player how often should you win? 60%? Is winning 6 out of 10 realistic if your a good player? Thanx for your help

60% is a very high amount to

60% is a very high amount to win even at micro stakes on a non PokerStars site. Hyper turbos are small edge per game, but they finish so frequently that the small edges can add up to a lot more profit than slower, higher edge games (like say regular speed or turbo speed games).

Winning 55% of your games as a professional can make you a great deal of money long term and is more realistic I believe on the softer non PokerStars sites like ACR.

pre flop charts

Hi, I would like to ask 3 questions regarding the preflop charts.

1) IP limp-fold vs shove means we call non-shove 3-4bb iso with this hands? 

2) How different should be preflop vs fish since you specify that this is vs reg strategy?

3) under 8bb do you play push-fold adjusted to opponents call-push stats?

Thanks

Shoving range 15BB IP

Bit disappointing about your shoving range at 15BB  IP vs REG seem to be really easy to be exploit.

Because you only shove A4o,A3o,33,22  any one understand the range will call pp 44+ and A5xs+

It would take a lot of hands

It would take a lot of hands for a reg to figure your range out there, I think any regs at higher levels in particular should always be adjusting by that point in time.

If the population of regs usually does NOT call with a range that exploits what Alex advocates, then it would be a great default strategy.

It must not be that easy to exploit, since the calling range you present vs that shove range isn't actually exploitive ;)
If you knew his open shove range was exactly 22 33 A3o A4o 15bb deep, you would want to call significantly wider than 44+ A5xs+. The maximally exploitive call range is:
33+, A3s+, KTs+, Q8s+, J7s+, T6s+, 96s+, 85s+, 75s+, 65s, A4o+, JTo, T9o, 98o, 87o

So perhaps you should keep working on your own understanding--it's seems it's more likely you're the one who's misunderstanding something.
