How to Play Optimally With and Against a 40BB Stack


This is a great series for optimizing and gaining a deeper understanding of midstacking for both cash games and MTTs. Since this series is mostly math based, the strategies don't change.  This course will vastly improve your understanding of playing 30 to 55bb effective stacks in both cash games and in MTTs in 2017.

A message from YourDoom...

There is a ridiculous, easily exploitable game out there right now since almost no one has any idea how to play with or against a midstack.

Think of it like this. If you could go back to 2008 with the poker knowledge that you have right now, how would you do in the games? I think if you are a 2bb/100 winner at NL100 now, then you would CRUSH NL600 in 2008 with that same skill set.

The same thing is happening right now, but only with 40BB poker. I always thought that eventually the good 100bb regs would all catch up and it would become the standard to be proficient with and against a 40BB stack. But it's 2017 and that hasn't happened.  MOST high stakes regs are still clueless and have massive leaks playing against a midstack.   There is a gold mine out there for the taking. Poker is so easily crushed with my 40BB system; it is really the same as playing 100BB poker in 2008 imo; mainly because no one knows how to do it well.

"...Here's the thing: sure, almost every vid in the series introduced me to a new approach or way of thinking and taken in isolation these concepts alone would be well worth the price of admission. But what, to me, is much more valuable is that Ryan reveals his whole game plan, his way of thinking, and having access to such a sophisticated, thorough and well-thought out masterpiece is nothing short than gold. ...So I just went through the 40bb series and I want to give you a quick heads up that your material is absolutely top-notch. Every video has at least one concept that I have never seen anywhere else and I have pretty much read all the books and seen all the vids." - Softspot on 2+2 Poker Forum

"I've studied a lot of tournament player over the years. The 40bb course has a lot of information that takes years to learn on your own through trial and error along with some new inventive tricks. I told Ryan I wish the 2008 or 2009 version of me had access to this course instead of having to learn everything on my own. It was also really great to have such an accomplished player basically confirm a lot of things I was doing were right." - jjyykk on 2+2 Poker Forum

"I have recently bought your 40bb strategy. I am an mtt player and I know your series is not about mtts I just wanted to pick your brain on that strategy cause I think your one of the best in the world. I loved the series and I think it was worth every penny and I really think it has improved my tournament results. I usually check this forum twice a month and always check this thread but after u made that post about the new mtt series I check in once a day now." - Eebo on 2+2 Poker Forum

I recommend it to everyone who wanna succed on midstack and 100bb player who doesnt play an optimal game against 40bbs. Sorry for my english cose im spanish" - Juanma1331 on 2+2 Poker Forum

“I wasn't very good at poker in and before 2011 and thankfully, I first run against Ryan during summer 2011 - he used to make videos for another site at the time I have, from the very first video, understood that this guy is the real deal. From that point on I missed exactly zero Ryan's videos. Ryan's video series "Playing from the blinds", "Playing with and against 40bb stack" then came out. It goes without saying that I watched them through with great attention several times. Now THAT was a total breakthrough. I finally was starting to understand what this game is about. Using the new knowledge, superior techniques and experimenting with lines, my skill and winrate approached very decent level.

I watched and rewatched these, and they have opened me a whole new face of the texas holdem. I was a very bad player back then and those vods were just what doctor ordered. After months of work at my game and self-discipline my results improved significantly. I moved up in stakes and finally became a winning player…” –RainbowFlash on 2+2 Poker Forum


So i've bought a few courses from YourDoom's website and just thought i'd say his courses are a god send for me, I watch these videos and just think 'Wow this guy has it all figured out, no wonder he's crushing the games'.  He comes up with new ideas and then puts the math behind them to justify how it's all +EV (which we all want to see!), he explains everything in all videos + many sample videos/replayer sessions so you see it all in action along with detailed analysis. The biggest thing i'd like to point out about YourDoom is when he plays his hands, he plays them all very mathematically looking for spots that will be +EV and not by some 'gut feeling' saying "Oh I feel he could be bluffing so I call" He looks over all the math and analyzes and then decides, this approach i've found personally DRAMATICALLY REDUCES TILT because the decision is in the math, not the 'gut'. This is just what you want in a poker coach! I'm looking forward to more courses in the future!  - LozaM50 on 2+2 Poker Forums
