The Entire Preflop Game Tree Solution for 100BB 6-Max NLHE *NEW*



For the first time ever, the entire preflop game for 100BB 6-Max NLHE has been solved and offered publicly. The technology required to do this is cutting-edge, utilising countless supercomputer hours to derive a solution. The solution is NOT limited only to HU scenarios, but in fact covers the entire game tree which includes multiway scenarios.


What does it cover?

RFI/3bet/4bet/5bet, cold 4-bets, squeezes, and flat calling ranges for BTN and BB for 6-Max 100bb NL (5.0% $3 Cap rake structure, equivalent to Zoom $500 on PokerStars.) We have intelligently pruned near-irrelevant parts of the tree such as denying the SB the opportunity to flat call, as this is almost completely disincentivized in games with non-negligible rake. We also found that flat calling from MP-CO resulted in narrow ranges that didn’t add any significant EV to  these positions. 3B/Fold for MP/CO/SB therefore becomes an accurate simplification for modeling raked mid stakes games. The preflop bet sizing scheme was chosen after screening for the solver’s preferred sizes.


Why should I buy it?

Until now, the only preflop solutions available have been for BB vs IP, and SB vs IP (absent of card removal effects, and with purely guesstimated IP ranges). By comparison, this solution finds optimal opening ranges for all players, and adjusts for the card removal effects of the strategy acted by previous opponents in the hand. For example, if it is folded round to the SB, the fact that four players have already folded impacts on the strategy of the SB, compared to if this was an isolated HU dynamic with no prior action having taken place. Moreover, multi-way tree scenarios have never been solved before now, and in this solution you will find the solution for UTG/MP/CO vs BTN vs SB/BB (all combinations of these scenarios). This is unprecedented territory, opening up a pandoras box of optimal strategy in a key area of the games, and moving more intelligent ranges to the postflop study of these scenarios.

Expert Reviews

Bigstealer: Former Multi-Time Supernova Elite and current Zoom $500 Reg


"These solutions are mind blowing. I’m stunned I’ve had success without them and now I’m excited to see what the future holds now that I’ve got them. The clarity and accuracy of this blueprint will make this a tool I use daily in the quest to improve my game.

Ivan has consistently pushed boundaries from both the theoretical and exploitative side of the game. He was one of the biggest winners in 6max hypers at the highest stakes which requires extremely solid theoretical knowledge and having lived with him I’ve seen first-hand his students destroy multi table tournaments where adaptability and exploitation prevails more. Ivan has always been at or near the top of any field he’s put his mind to. As a former chess player his desire to strategize and solve is unparalleled with anyone I know."

The Entire Preflop Game Tree Solution for 100BB 6-Max PLO *NEW*


The entire preflop game for 100BB 6-Max PLO has been solved and is being offered publicly. The technology required to do this is cutting-edge, utilising countless supercomputer hours to derive a solution. The solution is NOT limited only to HU scenarios, but in fact covers the entire game tree which includes multiway scenarios.


What does it cover?

The complete optimal 100BB 6-Max PLO preflop strategy for all possible 1-1 and multiway situations:

- RFI (with SB having the option to openlimp)
- 3bet/4bet/5bet ranges
- Calling/coldcalling ranges vs all opens/raises/reraises
- Rake structure 4.5% with a $3 Cap, equivalent to $10-$20 PLO on PokerStars.

We have performed intelligent pruning in some near-irrelevant parts of the tree, such as 5- and 6-way single raised pots, to allow for a more accurate abstraction model with less memory usage. This has enabled us to increase the solution's overall accuracy compared to the existing products on the market:

- Over twice the number of buckets
- Perfect/Medium/Small (compared to Perfect/Small/Small)
- Improved convergence

We have achieved this through intensive computation (30,000 hours of total CPU time), and a sophisticated construction of the game tree.


Why should I buy it?


Until MonkerSolver was released in February 2017, the great game of 6-max PLO was unsolved for as long as online poker existed. Studying PLO analytically was very hard due to the size of the game (there are 270725 PLO starting hands compared to 1326 in NLHE) and the lack of powerful software tools. Solving PLO preflop strategy was impossible. Attempting to solve for PLO postflop strategy meant trying to come up with rather crude strategy estimates for selected 1-1 situations, and at the end of the day it all came down to guesswork about the preflop ranges with which the two players arrived at the flop.

The 6-handed PLO preflop solution contains the full pre flop strategy for the game. PLO 6-handed preflop play is therefore effectively solved. Knowing the optimal preflop strategy also allows us to solve optimal postflop play accurately by using these preflop ranges as input in postflop simulations.
 

Important to know before buying

You will receive the 6-Max PLO solution file in MonkerSolver format, and will therefore need to purchase MonkerSolver. Finally, please be aware that the solution file is 17.5GB, and you will require a similar amount of available RAM in order to run the solution. In MonkerSolver, you only require to 'load 1 street' in order to view the preflop solution.

The Entire Preflop Game Tree Solution for Three-Handed Spin and Go's *NEW*



For the first time ever, the entire preflop game for three-handed Spin and Go's has been solved and offered publicly. The technology required to do this is cutting-edge, utilising supercomputer hours to derive a solution. The solution is NOT limited only to two-player scenarios, but in fact covers the entire game tree which includes three-way scenarios. Any solution that you may have purchased in the past did not contain this.

Offered are two different three-handed Spin and Go packs, which cater to both the low-mid stakes grinder, and also the highest stakes grinder of the games. With these packs you will have an optimal strategy to serve you well in these games, and to adjust from where you see opponents missing their optimal frequencies against you. This will also provide the strongest framework for the construction and study of optimal postflop play that can only be derived from optimal preflop play.


What do the packs cover?

The packs contain complete solutions for three-handed spin & go play for four stack sizes:

25BB
20BB
16BB
12BB

SPIN & GO: SIMPLE

- BTN can openraise small, openraise all-in, call and overcall vs 3-bets (SB 3-bet shoves+BB calls).
-SB can 3-bet all-in, and when opening can raise small or all-in.
-BB can 3-bet all-in, call or overcall (vs BTN openshove+SB call).

SPIN & GO: ADVANCED

- BTN can openraise small or raise all-in, can 4-bet shove, and can call and overcall vs 3-bets (SB 3-bet shoves+BB calls).
-SB can 3-bet small, 3-bet all-in, and when opening can employ a complex mixed strategy of limps, small raises, raises all-in, and re-raises after limping.
-BB can 3-bet small, 3-bet all-in, raise small over limps, raise all-in over limps, call, or overcall (vs BTN openshove+SB call).
-The Spin & Go: Simple pack is also included complimentary.


For each stack size we have chosen bet sizes consistent with solver preferences. Options that the solver prefers not to use have been pruned away.


Why should I buy them?

Until now, commercial solutions have simply guessed what a button opening range should be, which turns out to be quite different from the actually optimal button opening range. Furthermore, the BB calling range is significantly impacted by this too. We have also screened the preflop bet sizings to ensure that we are in line with the solver’s preferences throughout the preflop tree. So what we have built represents the most accurate, fine-tuned solution that has been delivered to the market.

The Simple pack operates with a simplified strategy for SBvsBB, playing entirely a raising strategy without limps, and also does not include a small 3-bet sizing for either of the blinds. It still turns out to be a strong approach, and one which will be much easier to implement for the majority of the player pool, and for those who prioritise maximising their table count.

Expert Reviews

Leonardo Mancuso aka leoele07 (World-Class Spin and Go Reg)

"Well about the ranges, i find them very useful especially against good regs who are hard to exploit preflop and against regs who I have no info about.

They are quite different from standard charts, so regs' responses are still very far from optimal and they generate a very good EV if they are played well."
