Hello all,

Today we launched our first 'Poker Bites' topical video. These short videos will cover basic strategies with some hand examples of how the Pros play in these spots.

You'll find the first one here:

Very nice, BUT.................

These videos should be done at the level of what most players play here and that's a 2nl or 5nl and I'm pretty sure the Pro's wouldn't get the same results.

These are pro's playing with a huge bankroll, huge stakes (100nl, 200nl and 400nl) with much greater knowledge and greater gambling risk opportunities.

Showing such videos to players who have a hard time just breaking even, will just make it worse

There should be a warning on the video

Just my 2 cents

PS. Still a very good video

These poker bites could be a goldmine. I like the format a lot, although I had some problems with my video player.

I really like the general advice that Jesse May gives out in this video (like "3-bet bluff if your opponents will fold better hands") but I concur with Sandtrap that this is pretty advanced for PSO players that might be struggling to beat 2NL/5NL. It's possible to beat those games without ever 3-betting light. One of the main reasons 3-betting light doesn't work particularly well at 2NL (if you just do it randomly) is that your bluffs will get called too often.

I look forward to seeing more videos in this series.
