Joe Gomez saved me this week, even though he looked really shaky all game.

I don't really see how all tables becoming anonymous would be beneficial to recreational players anyway. It would force all the current regs to get better as they would have to play more hands vs each other, pushing everyone over even more to a more GTO style. The skill level between fish and regs would become wider as fish are never going to improve at a rate close to the regs. Sure you wouldn't get 50 deep waiting lists for a fish but you would still get a fish on a table with 5 really good regs. The same would be true at every table a fish decided to sit. And a fish is easily identifiable as a fish even if you haven't got PTR or tons of hands on them. They've got glaring leaks that are instantly identifiable to anyone paying attention. Fish couldn't be targeted per say but you still would never have a fish cashing any money out ever. It would be one major step to full ring 10bb anonymous push or fold which is the sites absolute dream as it's impossible for anyone to make any money.

 Bodog works because anyone who has played on an American facing site knows that players in America are wayyyyyyyy  behind the curve of everyone else, meaning the regs are closer to skill level to the fish. Plus the fact that you can only play in America and no internet pros exist in America that would be close to decent regs from the current pool we are discussing. Watch Galfonds RIO vid on Bodog. It's effortless because everyone is sooooooo bad.

Everyone who isn't a fish now is so good at poker compared to the fish that there really isn't a way to protect the fish. They are always going to lose their money and at a fast rate because they are playing a game vs someone much better and hard working at the game than they are.

It's up to the sites to promote games that haven't been close to "solved" yet, as there are many forms or poker and they are all super fun and challenging to play. But the problem is that NL is perfect for fish because they think they are good at it, or know how to play, it's easy to understand and not too gambly.

Opinions on villains range are welcome and I'll happily do some more sims based on these assumptions. I think this is a really interesting hand from a beginners perspective and shows PLO is ridiculous complex and deep.

Edit: these turn cards we can stack off on are all assuming the villain will shove 100% of turns, which in reality isn't true as players at plo10 are going to be checking whenever their hands are not the nuts anymore in big pots.

I plugged in 3 diff ranges for villain using a UTG raise of 20% and 4% 4bet (AAxx). Not sure if this is accurate for these games at this level but again, like others have said, it's a pretty big mistake to be 3betting hands like this vs ranges you not sure of.

Edit: (for those unfamiliar with pokerjuice the bar graph on the right is the % time we can stack off on the turn vs the amount of time we have to fold. The circle above is the avg equity we will have vs villains range. The bar graph on the right is all the cards we can stack off on iven the pot odds and villians range. SOEQ_NS is the equity we need on the next street to be able to stack off given the odds and SOEQ is the equity we need to stack off on this street (flop)

First get it in range (GII) is pretty loose and I'd say pretty optimistic even for 10plo. So any 2pair+,any pair+straight draw and any flush draw.

Second range would be a fairly solid GII range. QJ+,8T+, any Q+fd and any QT+

Third is a tightish GII range. Any straight, any set, QT+fd.

I've included cards we have odds to stack off vs the range, and as you can see we aren't folding an awful lot of turns in any scenario (after all we have the 2nd nuts).
The EV peel in the top right shows us how much money we are making, calling the flop and stacking off on these turns with the odds. Obv it's really close and can change from being EV+ to EV- with a slight range tweek.
Think the overall consensus though is it's marginal and I'd try to avoid getting into these spots when you're just starting out. BTN v CO you can go pretty wide 3betting but I'd save the top 10% maybe vs UTG depending on how loose they are.

Invest in Pro Poker Tools Odds Oracle. You can do tons of work with it and nearly every strat thread you come across will use it or pokerjuice (which is a lot more expensive but prettier). When I transitioned over from NL I got this, opened it up and played some micro zoom plo. Typed every hand I got into PPT to get an idea of hand strength. Think it's really useful to get an idea % wise of how strong a hand is, which allows you to develop ranges. You can do tons with it, like check how often you can stack off with hand vs opponents range in a 3bet pot, how much equity you need to do so, how often you'll realise this equity etc. You'll improve massively in a short space of time and feel a lot more comfortable when you have a good maths based foundation.

Depends on a few factors. The size/resolutions of the screens you're using, whether you're using HEM or PT4, the size of your database. I assume you're playing tourneys so your database won't be that big, but HEM is a hugely resource intensive programme compared to PT4. A 5m+ hand database and HEM is going to take a lot of ram up.

I've got less points than before my sub.

It's nice to know that people check these things.

I had previously scored one additional (erroneous) point for Dylan Linde. Since he was your captain this equated to two extra points being included in your score.
I corrected this when I applied your substitution.
