In poker, players form sets of five playing cards, called hands, according to the rules of the game. Each hand has a rank, which is compared against the ranks of other hands participating in the showdown to decide who wins the pot. In high games, like Texas hold 'em and seven-card stud, the highest-ranking hands win.In low games, like razz, the lowest-ranking hands win.

In his latest video video, MTT Poker School head coach Gareth James looks at a key hand from the final table of the Blowout Series $530 PKO tournament on PokerStars where well-known pro Ramiro 'ramastar88' Petrone has a chance to eliminate two players.


The main crux of the video focuses on the key learning from this hand, and James uses Simple Preflop Holdem to show you whether it's a good or bad call from the original raiser.

Here's the hand: 'ramastar88' opens to 600k at 150k/300k/37.5k with , 'jucetoor18' on the button jams for 11bb with and 'LoosControl' in the SB re-jams for 18bb with . The BB folds and it's back on 'ramastar88' to make a decision..

James recommends watching these hole card up final table replays as a great way to improve your own study to see what some of the best players in the world are doing and also remain open-minded even if we think the play is bad and/or the solver wouldn't play like that.

The analysis starts with a discussion around how wide the original raiser can open given he's the chip leader before moving on to what the player in second place (888 Pro Dominik Nitsche) can do against this range - what hands should he flat and what hands should he 3-bet? He then moves on to look at the BTN's shoving range and the SB's re-shove range before showing what the solver would call in this spot.
