I answer 3 listener Q’s about small blind opening ranges in cash games, recording your own game tape and running virtual poker study groups.  This is a listener Q&A.

Question 1 from Amir (2:20)

Morning, Sky. I was looking at your information on 6max small blind play. It’s 14 percent. Looks very small. I never played 6max or online before and I’m looking for any help on small blind play or ranges in general. Let me know if you can help.

Question 2 from David (5:25)

Hi Sky,
I would really appreciate some advice.
I have started a study group to study the book “Poker’s 1%” over on the Red Chip Poker forums. There was some discussion about starting a study group but no-one seemed to want to commit to a time, so I took the bull by the horns and extended an invite. The response was really good, with about 8 people wanting to join.
Problem is, I have no idea about study groups. The only study groups I’ve been in were in Uni and typically degenerated rapidly into drinking sessions. I don’t think that’s an option here – this will be a “virtual” study group, with people spread across the world in many locations. Time zones will be challenging for setting up live group discussions, particularly for me because I am in Asia, and am only available for a limited time each evening. As the instigator I also think people will defer to me for leadership, which is not my preference because I’m not the most organized person.
I’d appreciate any thoughts you have on what the elements of a successful study group are. Also, is there any etiquette around using the forums for this? I plan to reach out to Splitsuit, but I wanted to engage you first.
Thanks, David

Question 3 from Rob (10:00)

I’m planning on doing your 30 day Poker Study Challenge.  Can you tell me how to record my game play to review?

Challenge (12:10)

Here’s my challenge to you for this episode: Increase your steal frequency from the SB. Most players don’t defend often enough to make steals unprofitable, so just start doing it more. Consider your opp’s stats before you do so, tighten up your ranges if they defend a lot, and widen them more if they defend little. This is great for any kind of poker you’re playing, whether it’s cash, SNG’s or MTT’s.
