If you're asking for a theory class, perhaps I can put one together, it should be easy enough. Covering it won't take long tbh. But during the mtt and sng days the trainers should be discussing bubble play every time they're on the bubble, so there's actually a lot of sessions where it's covered.

i remember several time the trainers talk about what to look up for during bubble but when i check the recorded video, i couldn't find it. I guess it inside 1 or few of the sessions.

I imagine a hand example class for STT bubble play would be very helpful for a lot of people. Even for me, I think seeing your take on the basics would help my game a good deal. Here's a list of questions I think you could address individually, with a hand example or two accompanying most of them.

What is the bubble?

What is the best strategy for STT bubble play?

Why is aggression important?

How loose should you be opening? How loose is too loose?

Against what player types should you tighten up and wait for legitimate hands?

When should you resteal?

How should you behave with (effectively) ~5bb? ~10bb? Over 10bb (should you be open/folding)?

When should you call all-in on a big stack?

When should you call all-in as the short stack?

When should you fold big hands (e.g. AK)? When should you take a risk and get it in with them?

How can you use player observations/HUD stats to adjust your bubble strategy?

How does STT bubble play differ from MTT bubble play and Skill League bubble play?


I think this would be a great class if you were to do one on the topic. I'm sure you'd do a great job with it. I'm kind of already excited.

I usually struggle in this 2 topics

Is their any topics already taken up or video made on the calling hands agains short stack shoving hands?
I would help my game a lot if someone can discuss this especially near the bubbles when aggressive players cease the moments to take advantage of tight players to steal the blinds during the bubble.

Yes. Actually I have questions on the stealing and re-stealing part near bubble. Everything from opponents, stack size, position, cards.

In STT's this is largely a function of ICM considerations. I can give you the basics (open very loose, but call very tight once someone has opened) but as STT's aren't my normal game they're probably better covered by someone who plays these regularly like honu. I'll ask him to incorporate some theory discussion into his STT sessions to that end.

I already talked to honu, he's going to cover ICM in upcoming sessions.
