When the tension count becomes really high
It’s best to view taking notes
We’re going to begin by outlining
Now that we have an idea

ATC 3 (Good grasp of hand strength) –
In the above example both you and your opponent
FC (Flush Chaser)
Most FC players will still play reasonable cards
SOOT (Likes to play any two suited cards)
When you have position on a SOOT
In the example both players

Another major advantage
LAF A – These opponents tend to be somewhat aggressive
Anytime you see someone put a bet
Typically you'll be in a spot
In the above example
If there were say 17 BBs
In the above example from a 6-max cash game
In this case, there are definitely enough

Be aware of these opponents
NPR (maniac) –
CBB (Continuation Bet Bad Boards)

In the Beginning
There's absolutely nothing wrong
What is my starting position?
Who is left to act behind me?
How often do they fold to a raise, re-raise or 4-bet?
Can I outplay my opponent post flop a decent amount?
How do others likely perceive me?
It's always best that if you're unsure about a hand
Some people play too many hands
One of the keys
Here's an example of a typical range
Create a situation where you'll be taking initiative
Blind Play
Making more definitive decisions
A lot of players watch top pros
Defending from the Big Blind vs Early Openers
If they are tight:
In the above example, your opponent open raises from UTG+1
Calling is preferable over check-raising
The important points about calling
low WTSD:
The important aspect of big blind play
Defending from the Big Blind vs Button Steals
Also, hands like 77/88
Add in some hands to our initial range
If you do 3-bet suited and offsuited connectors
If your opponent is opening to 2.5 BBs
What are stack sizes?
Squeezing from the Big Blind vs Open Buttons
You should already know what most of
You always want to keep in mind
When deciding how you will respond
How aggressive are they post flop?
Consistently put yourself in the highest EV situation
There are pros and cons
In the above example, you are in the big blind
How aggressive is our opponent?
Is our hand more for drawing or flopping top pair?
Defending from the Small Blind vs Steals
How wide is your opponent on the button opening?
How good is our opponent in the big blind?

Against players who are opening fairly wide
Standard 3-bet Strategy

Instead of 3-betting
Let's take a simple example
This isn't even accounting for the equity
Looks like it's just about the same EV
Applied Pressure vs Standard 3-bet Strategy
In general
