    What did you think? Did it end up helping you in any way?

    Yes I think it helped... certainly exposed me to some new lines of play and has me being even more aggressive (micro online at the moment, haven't gotten to play live in a few weeks). I will say that I found your, @SplitSuit, and @soto videos the most helpful to me, I loved the analysis you did for Chip extractor,, There are a couple of videos I would add to the course, maybe as additional resources... C-Betting 101 and the whole Coaching Andre series.
    I know the next big thing for me is just getting a bankroll again, sucks playing on a budget not a bankroll lol.

    I just bought the 1-2 crash course and I have 2 questions. One, what is the best way to go through all of the course material? Should of we watch all of the videos, then the podcast, then articles, etc. Second, is there a way to have the videos be full screen on the computer. I don't see the option on my laptop/desktop. It is only when I see the video on my phone that it goes full screen.

    Just had a breakthrough session at my local casino that motivated me to check out the course! So excited to work through it and strengthen my game. I'm already looking forward to discussing it.

    1. One video at a time. After each video, review the dashboard to see if there are any related articles/podcasts on the subject. Then on the next video. Rinse/repeat
    2. We're looking into that. It used to be that only PC could watch full-screen and mobile could not - and now, for whatever reason, it's the opposite. *sigh*

    I've been studying the game seriously for a few years and had some decent results. 4.12/100bb over 100k hands at $50nl online in NJ. I am absolutely loving the crash course. I love the structure it gives as opposed to other sites where there are 1,000 videos but no direction. I am also getting answers to questions that have plagued me since I started playing. "don't worry about the draws" "don't play to win pots, play to win money." "raise larger against the limpers" It's poker instruction the way I always wished it would be explained.

    I am also working through it. I have seen a few of the videos before but trying to work through areas giving me problems.
    I noticed that there is a few vids on multi way pots and was wondering why Ed Miller's section on that was not in there. I found that very informative for my game types. It was The Course #5 video

    That's why I think the Crash courses are so useful to the non pro member. It presents fundamentals you need to be able to get more out of the content here. From there you see yourself asking for more from a coach on a certain subject you would like to do more work on a there you go your a red chipper. Time to go Pro.

    Hey guys,

    Going through the Live $1/$2 NLHE PRO VIDEO PLAYLIST.

    Video number 2 in the playlist [The Course # 2: Pre Flop Skills] by Ed Miller

    @ the 0:55 mark Ed mentions an upcoming book (coming out early 2015) titled:

    [No-Limit Hold'Em Made Simple]

    Does anybody know if this was completed or where it's available because I cannot find it anywhere?

    I am getting errors trying to log into the crash course, it goes to "Find your Edge" page where it offers me to buy it again, but when I click "Crash Course 1/2" it tells me 404 Page Error! Frustrating!

    I have the Ed Miller videos from when I had a Red Chip account. What percentage of the videos in the crash course are from Ed?

    Hi guys, I just purchased the $1/2 crash course & I think it is a great value!
    I was under the impression there was some kind of course guide or checksheet that went with the course, along with various missions to focus on on our sessions at the casino. This was from listening to the podcast episode on the crash course, Doug talks about a "Never Limp" mission, and the value of having a mission from each lesson to apply at the casino.

    I think a checksheet to make sure all of the videos/articles/podcasts get studied and questions to answer and missions to accomplish would be a valuable addition to the course. I really want to make sure I wring every bit of value out of each piece.

    Thank you!

    I purchased the crash course. Is there a way to download the videos?

    the article "what to open pre-flop" by Hunter Nichy https://redchippoker.com/what-to-open-raise-preflop/.

    It is a very tight range for live games it seems, especially compared to Miller's suggested ranges https://redchippoker.com/infographic-pre-flop-ranges/

    His suggested bet sizes also seem out-of-date and do not consider the more recent exploration of "pain thresholds" explaned by Soto.

    As of now I am a little looser than Nicy but tighter than Miller's 14% open from EP.

    What do others think apply to your live games @ 1/2 and 2/5? Are you still being tight in EP. Have you been betting bigger to find people's pain threshold and play more heads-up and 3-way pots?

    I've recently started expanding my opening range beyond Nichy and raising bigger and so far I like the impact it hardrds on the game dynamics.

    The one item I struggle with is determining bet sizing relative to stack sizes. If there are several players to my left with less than 100bb it seems counterproductive to raise large with Axs, sc, small pp type hands that will generate very small SPRs oop.

    I don't know if limping in with multiple shorties at the table (in passive games) would be better or if raising to a more "standard" size (4x-5x_open or 4x + limps after limpers).

    Cichy and Miller/Soto seem to be from completely different ends of the spectrum. Any thoughts on how to approach this vast difference. Especially what game dynamics would have you leaning more towards one than the other?

    TECH UPDATE

    Since switching the main site over to HTTPS yesterday it looks like the Crash Courses have been affected. The tech wizard has been made aware and we are looking to fix it and have the videos streaming again ASAP.

    Thank you for your patience and I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
