I teach you about percentage form and how to color code your HUD stats for quick and easy reference and to find frequency issues in your opponent’s games.  

Podcast Mission (2:55)

My mission for today is to teach you how you should think about the stat %’s in your HUD and color code them to make it quick and easy to find your opponent’s frequency issues.

What do these numbers really mean? (4:00)

Percentage Form (4:45)

Color Coding for the Win (12:05)

Podcast Challenge (16:10)

Here’s my challenge to you for this episode: Create some of your own color coding ranges for the most important stats in your HUD. I recommend doing this for the stats mentioned today, as well as Attempt to Steal, Fold to Cbet, # of Hands Played and VPIP. Take the time to create these on your own, giving careful thought to what the percentages mean. Use Equilab, Flopzilla or some other software to aid you in this process. This practice of thinking about each individual stat and what the possible percentages mean will be great for your ongoing poker development.

I discuss how I use popups in my PokerTracker 4 HUD to maximally exploit my opponents.

Podcast Mission (2:50)

My mission for today is to teach you how you can utilize popups most effectively with the minimum amount of information possible.  The popups that come with PT4 can be too complicated with stats just all over the place and organized in a very non-user friendly way.  I’ll teach you the most important considerations for the stats within your popups, so that you can avoid overwhelm and actually put them to use.

Stats Under Varying Conditions (3:30)

IP or OOP

Specific Position

By Street

2bet or 3bet Pots

My Popups (12:15)

RFI & Fold to 3bet Popup

3bet Popup

Steal Popup

Cbet Popup

Fold to Cbet Popup

Podcast Challenge (17:20)

Here’s my challenge to you for this episode:  Commit to utilizing one of your popups for each session this week.  If it’s the default “Tools” popup in PT4, or your own Cbet popup, or my Steal Popup if you purchase my SMART HUD, whatever, your goal this week will be to use it for every relevant decision made at the tables.  Write out on a piece of paper each element of the HUD to help train yourself in its contents and their placements.  Color code backgrounds or fonts to help you spot important stats for quick reference.  Don’t consider your task complete until you’ve mastered this one popup, even if it takes you 10 sessions to do so.  Once mastered, move on to the next.

I add some killer stats to your essential HUD, and teach you how to practice utilizing them through purposeful HH reviews.

Podcast Mission (2:45)

My mission for today is to build out your HUD with some key stats for exploiting opponents both pre and post-flop.  You’ll learn more about Raise First In, Fold to 3bet, Cbet and Fold to Cbet stats over multiple streets.  I’ll also teach you how you can practice using your HUD to aid in decisions thru dedicated HH reviews.

More Stats for Pre-flop and Post-flop Exploiting Opponents (3:25)

Raise First In (RFI)

Fold to 3bet

 

Combo Stat: RFI and Fold to 3bet

 

Flop & Turn Cbet

Flop & Turn Fold to Cbet

 

Combo Stat: Fold to Flop & Turn Cbet

Practicing Using the HUD in HH Reviews (14:30)

 

Podcast Challenge (16:45)

Here’s my challenge to you for this episode:  Commit to utilizing your HUD when analyzing every decision made during your HH reviews.  If you decided to fold, what stats told you he’s strong here and won’t fold to a reraise?  If you decided to call, what stats told you he might be bluffing or could be betting a weaker hand?  And if you decided to raise, what stats told you that he’ll fold to your bluff or that he’ll call your value raise with worse?
