By definition GTO cannot be exploited and any non GTO style will be exploited by it, but I guess the real question is should we be playing GTO (or trying to: it's impossible to play it perfectly in any but the simplest headsup spots) or an exploitative style based on identifying mistakes opponents are making and trying to exploit them. I think the answer is it depends how confident we are about identifying opponent mistakes.so what do you think
should we be the one GTO'ing or the one exploiting it
and what frequency do we need to exploit it over it exploiting us to be EV+
What do you have against squirrels Barry?!Winner draw
You’re not wrong P.O. - the last number in the draw was clearly shown on screen twice as being 4 and @BarryCarter accidental inputs ‘5’ a second time instead of 4 before not realising the error when working out which account was connected to each number and discovering 5 a second time.CRStals is a luckbox & wins everything he enters (hopefully the big tourney he's going to as well)
Looks like #4 Tracid might've taken a bad beat
You could even say it's "RIGGED", lol.... and I won't complainWhat do you have against squirrels Barry?!
Or should I call you Bird of Pa-Rrey..?
You shall be hearing from my solicitors (they are owls).

Human error in this instance thankfully didn’t lead to any ugly consequences, haha.. 😄
Good job I’ve had all the practice at taking bad beats without tilting/blowing up, eh? 😜🤪😆
But they use an RNG, how could it possibly be rigged!? 😜You could even say it's "RIGGED", lol.... and I won't complain
Hello, DOK. Is this thing still on? If so...Hi Cardschat,
I am Dara O’Kearney, known as Doke online. I am an Irish poker professional tournament player, with over $1 million in live earnings and more than $3 million in online MTTs, not to mention 8 PocketFives Triple Crowns.
I am perhaps best known for being a satellite specialist. I have won over $1 million in online satellites alone and have just written a new book on this subject called Poker Satellite Strategy:
Away from the tables I am the co-host of the Global Poker Award winning Chip Race Podcast and sponsored by Unibet Poker. Prior to poker I was an ultra marathon runner
Cardschat have kindly agreed to let me do an Ask Me Anything thread where you can ask me anything at all about satellites and tournament strategy. This will be on an ongoing basis, I’ll be checking in most weeks starting this one to answer your questions and to begin with I will be around tomorrow to answer the first batch.
Also this month I will give a free copy of my book on Apple iBooks to my favourite question, once a week for the next four weeks.
You'd need to ask my wife: she tracks thathow much money you earn this year ?
No, the book specifically covers super satellites (satellites with more than one prize of equal value) rather than winner takes all satellites. The latter have no ICM so should just be played like cash gameIs Dara a good strategy to play single table satellites?
It's definitely not necessary. There are two types of software you can use, one legal (but only on certain sites), one illegal.Hello. my question would be like this. Is it necessary to use computer assistants if you play a multi-table tournament, is it possible to succeed without them? I heard that professionals play with the help of programs, I do not know how to use it and whether it is necessary.
Very interesting question. The most plus Ev way to play is either never rebuy never add on (highest ROI as its a freeroll but low hourly as you'll very rarely actually win) or:How do you play a Freeroll satellite with 1500 players, 10 places paid, 1000 starting stack (hyper speed, blind lev 2min), unlimited rebuy for 5000 chips for $0.11 for the first 30 min then opportunity to buy an add on for the same price for 50000 chips.
The ticket have a value of $11.
I try it with one rebuy and try to late register to make it to the end of the late registration period to have the chance to make the add on, at this time there is only 300 players remaining and a lot of them doesn't take the add on option. I am like 150 over 300 after the add on and now I try to transform $0.22 into $11 ticket.
Thanks a lot for your advice i will try this, yeah for sure i am not goint to win a lot of times, it will be a lower Roi as you Said. If a mange to win 1/100 it's going to be a +EV play. Since $0.11 for $11 is a great improvement gotta try your method with late registrationVery interesting question. The most plus Ev way to play is either never rebuy never add on (highest ROI as its a freeroll but low hourly as you'll very rarely actually win) or:
(1) Max late reg (assuming late registration is allowed)
(2) Get to the add on as cheaply as possible (play slow to help with this) but never drop out because addon is so valuable
(3) Add on
(4) Play it like a normal satellite from that point
This method will have a lower ROI but still be very profitable, and a much higher hourly (as you'll win the ticket a lot more often).
Thanks for your question, and good luck!
Hi Dara, 27 left in a 4500 field $22 bounty tournament on pokerstars. Most of table short stacked ranging from 8bb -40bb .
I’m sitting with 12bb on button with a $67 bounty which is around average at this stage.
Utg 22bb makes it 2bb. Utg +1 calls, same stack. I’ve 88 on button with 12bb .
Is this always a shove as one/both should be calling with their stack sizes and size of my bounty , or can a call ever be justified and re-evaluate on a flop of probably 10 high ?
Do you think poker will be around for many years to come? Or do you think its in decline?
