Hey Bart just listened to the latest podcast where you asked for some feedback and wanted to give my opinion.
First I've been a subscriber for around 3 years and my game has drastically improved. I think the content and CLP community is great.

As far as podcast content I loved the 100 hands at 5/5 series. I personally like the stuff that is geared towards the 2/5 level. I also really enjoy the "shotgun format." I think it really helps just to hear some spots where you open and cbet or delay cbet or check and give up. These spots come up frequently and the shotgun format really hits these spots hard. Hopefully with your 500 hour challenge we will get to hear some more podcast content at the 5/5 level.

I also like the videos that are of the 1/3 deepstack games and the 5/5 games. I know that a lot of the concepts are the same in the 5/10/20 or 25/50 games but its just nice to be able to directly relate a video to your own game.

I also really enjoyed the video series "A hero's perspective". Blacking out the opponents hole cards in my opinion is the best way to do it. It keeps focused on the analysis of the hand. When the viewer can see the villains holding it makes it hard to look at the hand with an open mind.

And of course keep the PLO8/BIGO stuff coming!!

Keep up the good work!

    I think some more content on lower limit capped games would be good. Like 1/3 $300 max, or 1/2 $200-$300 max. There's a ton of content on bigger games but it seems most of the low limit stuff (besides the deepstack 1/3) is really old, and there's just not a lot of it.

    Btw... Love this site, Bart! I listen to a podcast every time on my way to casino as part of my routine. Between that, watching the videos, and reading the forum, my game has improved immensely over that last year. Thanks!

    I'd be interested in the lower stakes stuff also 1/2

    I think sprinkling in some 5/5 with 5/10 is a good mix for the podcasts. IMO, I wouldn't be surprised to see LA games, with how soft they are, to play 1/2 to a full stake level below the mean skill level for that stake from around the country. So the 5/5 probably plays closer to a 1/3 than a 2/5, 5/10 somewhere between a 2/5 5/5 and 5/10, etc.

    For video content, there are tons of 1/2 and 1/3 games that are streamed where content is readily available to be dissected.

    I agree with Beats Me. The 5/5 series was great. I also really like the shotgun format. It's nice to hear about the boring hands that happen dozens of time each session. Improving in those areas has the greatest impact on overall results imo.

    I know this is really not ideal but I kind of agree with the above on posts about shotgun formats

    To me real life hands aren't when we flop top set vs bottom set. It's when we for whatever reason open K6hh from MP and we flop TP vs a good reg. What do we do with thi hand.

    But I see why overall this is bad cause we shouldn't be encouraging playing preflop like that. So I think shotgun format is closest thing.

    The podcasts are fine with the exception of the ones that delve into the math. There was one episode in particular where you were focusing on percentages and math formula in relation to ones hand . Pot odds and outs are about as far ç I'm also clueless when it comes to percentages like he needs to be good 33% of the time d I was like how is he able to multiply subtract and whatever in the short amount of time before some arrogant dick calls the clock on you?

    I like the format of the Top Section Podcast - two people talking about two or three hands in depth, giving different perspectives. I think it would be cool to have Bart have a notable CLP Sub like @thehammah or @squishmytomato talk about 2 or 3 hands they played that week from a couple different viewpoints, and perhaps differentiations between how the hands would play at 1/2, 2/5, 5/10, 10/20+. A little bit like a glorified call-in show, but more thorough and dedicated to just that one Sub. Would also be cool to do the same thing with a primarily 1/2 or 2/5 player for site "balance". Just a thought...

    on off topic note squish my tomato looks like a dead ringer for Jimmy Mcculloch a vert good guitar player with Paul Mccartney and Wings back in the 70's who died of a drug overdose at age 26 in 1979

    The forums for the podcast should be on the same page at the podcast Its a pain sometimes to go into the forums to comment after i listen to the podcast Sometimes i cant even find them because the podcasts are not in order in the forums They are in order in the podcast section but not in the forums

    I agree with some of the posters above. How about doing an in-depth hand analysis with people like Wendy, Squish, etc. similar to like when you had those shows with Citizen James. They're still among my favourite all time episodes.
