MTT Preflop SPF Solution Pack: Late Position Opening and Big Blind Defense

As many of you know I'm hard at work on an MTT focused GTORB strategy pack, which will include a ton of simulation results analyzing chip EV and dollar EV at various points in the tournament, preflop play recommendations, postflop play analysis, and much more.

The first step towards that was working with a friend who is an MTT specialist to make a SPF preflop solution pack that we believe shows substantially stronger open ranges, 3-bet sizes, and defense range composition than existing population play or computational results.

The SPF pack is available here and is 5% off for GTORB readers with this link:

SPF solution packs are standalone and can be used with the free SPF version which is acceptable here:

I've also made a youtube video that briefly explains some of the methodology and shows some of the ranges from the solution pack which you can watch below.

Calculate Aggregate GTO Action Frequencies with SPF

In my latest free youtube video I've made a quick tutorial on how to use Simple Postflop to compute average GTO c-bet frequencies so that you can directly compare those numbers to DB / HUD stats.  I used the data from the 6-max preflop solution pack to compute the GTO BTN vs BB C-betting frequency for a 50% pot c-bet.

Note there is one technical detail that I skimmed when presenting the methodology which is that, when aggregating the c-bet frequencies, you also need to weight each board not only by its normal weight, but by the OOP check frequency on that given board, because that prior action is required for us to reach a decision point where we could c-bet.  Since OOP checks near 100% on all boards in this case, the impact of this is minor, but  it is essential in cases where you are analyzing actions that occur later in the hand as if you do not incorporate the board specific rate of reaching the decision point you are interested in then you can significantly mis-weight various flops.

GTORB readers can purchase SimplePostflop at the 10% discount here:

You can also get the Simple Postflop preflop pack that I used at a discount here (its pack #4):
