    Hi Split, any chance your previous webinar can be made available again? I wanted to check it out the other day but it said it wasn't available anymore.

    The webinar room says that it's "reached its full capacity of 500 attendees." And it's still three hours before the event!

    I certainly hope there will be a replay available.

    As long as players think of it as bluffing this will be a market with an endless demand.

    No plans to re-release it at this time. Might use it as a bonus for something else later though...

    Those getting the error message - can you try now and see if the same issue happens?

    I may have mentioned this for the previous webinar, but the playback doesn't seem to allow rewinding/forward through the video. Am I overlooking something? Sup with that?

    Great webinar as always. Taking it really slowly and experimenting with Flopzilla at the same time to get into it.

    One question keeps nagging at me: the 70% frequency thing. Where does this come from. Especially as a cbetting frequency OOP it appears way too high to me. Did I miss something?

    Or do I have to combine it with the checking range to get to that number?

    (I'm no expert, but...)

    My understanding is that it comes from Matthew Janda's Applications of No-Limit Hold 'em, via Ed Miller's Poker's 1%. It's based on a bunch of math.

    And, yes, "continuing" would include the sum of your betting, check-calling, and check-raising ranges.

    (I'm no expert either.)

    The 70% does come from a GTO-ish idea of range reduction. My understanding though is that it's affected by the size of the bets you are calling or making -- ie: you reduce less of your range with smaller bet investments, and reduce none of your range with no bets (a check). That might be something I made up or misunderstood, but the 70% ends up being some sort of short hand for this idea?

    Yes, stack sizes are important. As Sweeney explained in the webinar, the 70% assumes three roughly pot-sized bets post-flop. If stacks are shorter (or much bigger, presumably) than that, then the math is different.

    Also, being out of position puts you at an inherent disadvantage, so 70% is not necessarily the magic number there.

    right - that number would be affected by bet size, stacks behind and maybe position although i don't quite understand that part. So off table you could probably figure out exactly what percentage of your range you want to be continuing with based on these factors, but at the table i think the 70% is considered a good ballpark in most situations. Although for me I will try and use the bet size vs pot size as a more specific guide. But honestly, at table, if the bet size dictates continuing with 60% of range vs 70%, am I really going to know my range on this particular flop so well that I would know which combos are not in a 60% range vs a 70% range?

    Thanks for your answers. All makes some sense.,,,,,
    There is no magic number, I guess. Starting point is probably is to have a continuing strategy IP as well as OOP for one bet size (i.e. pot size) and then to develop the knowledge (or at least a feeling) how to adjust for other bet sizings.
    .....I see lots of work off-table coming up here

    You are the second person that I've seen say this in the last 24 hours.

    Where are you getting this from?

    Yup & yup. Better to have a strategic starting point than none at all =)

    "If someone bets, and I say you should usually call, I mean you should fold no more than 30 percent of the time. You can call, or you can raise, and together those should add up to roughly 70 percent of your actions."

    --Ed Miller, Poker's 1% - page 44.

    If I have mistaken his meaning, or gotten confused over when to think of it like this vs. when I shouldn't (as the bettor vs. caller, in position or out), or incorrectly conflated more than one concept, then I apologize. I'm still figuring it all out myself.
  • fatking lfatking l Red Chipper Posts: 3
    Well, that sounds to me like 70% is indeed the sum of our action except folding.
    Then being OOP, we will easily end up with a cbet freq < 70% if we plan to have a XR and XC range
