    Hey @Terphimself, thanks for another great video!

    I thought your voice sounds familiar and it finally clicked for me! I'm from the GR area and heard your voice on sports radio quite often!

    Love your PLO insight and looking to put it to good use at Gun Lake Casino! Because the buy-in for the 1/2/5 game is $500 and the game regularly features a raise with 3+ callers or a 3-bet PF, SPR is rarely above 5 heading to the flop. (Even a single raised pot HU gives me a 12.5 SPR when both players have $500 effective)

    So given the looser players and smaller SPR spots, we should be tightening up our PF range, right? Any pieces of advice for these shallower SPR spots? Is it a matter of just trying to flop a hand with a bunch of equity and getting as much money in the middle as possible?

    I only have a few sessions in at this location, but that's been my strategy so far.

    Hey dude! Great to have you on the site and on Discord!

    Make sure to introduce yourself the next time we are both at Gun Lake. I haven’t been there as much lately due to some home game action, but I’ll be back soon. Have you played in the GR scene long? Also, as a fellow beer nerd, love the screename!

    We definitely should be tighter pre in low SPR games. Also realize that your calling decisions could put you into “pot-stuck” situations on the turn. I’m sure you see many rec players get into these spots, and find themselves permanently in second place vs better made hands and draws.

    I loosen up a little in late position due to this dynamic with certain suited A hands. Having nut flush draws is more profitable withlow SPRs.

    Finally, when you flop strong, don’t mess around. Just go for the $$$

    Thanks for the response, Terp!

    I'll definitely make sure to say hello if I see you at Gun Lake! As for craft beer, I could talk for days about it. :)

    I've played poker for a while (5-year hiatus for work/family/other hobbies) but wasn't overly active in the GR scene. Mostly played online and home games prior to GLC opening their room.

    Heading to GLC now for a session! Cheers.
