About the Video Pack and Author
In 2012, Sentin made the transition from MTT and Cash game poker into HUSNGs. He decided that he would start from the ground up, beginning at the $1.50s. He credits starting at the bottom for building the strong backbone he uses today to help him beat levels as high as $100. His main game is now $60, where he has a better than 4% ROI over roughly 10,000 games. Sentin has built this video pack solely to help players get up to and through the $30 buyin level. Whether you're just starting out at the $1.50s or struggling in the $15s, let Sentin help you get back on track by showing you exactly what he has learned by beating each of these levels. Classroom videos demonstrate key concepts at each level in an easy to understand way. Hand histories from Sentin's original games solidify these concepts and also point out areas where Sentin could've improved. And finally, extreme grind videos are a fun way to exercise the brain and improve upon key skills needed to beat these games. With a guest class and hand history by Rollinas and a special HH review at the $30 by Sentin of PokerStars Team Pro "talonchick," this pack is packed full of interesting and valuable content.
What People Are Saying About Sentin's Free Videos
"Great video. Really great. I think that almost every poker player would benefit greatly from this." - Team PokerStars Member GodlikeRoy
"This is a top quality training video, covering one specific aspect of the game in some detail and using practical examples to demonstare the basic theory. Sentin's delivery and explanation of his thought processes are very good. Whilst I think that making this video available for free is completely understandable due it being Sentin's debut, I would argue that in terms of content and reinforcing winning concepts it deserves to be a premium video. More please" - HUSNG.com User Kerrydo
"I appreciate that you took time to break down and put forth a planned lesson and then found textbook examples to illustrate that lesson's themes. Your style is smooth, calm, and consistent, which sort of produces a more intimate instruction than I get from some of the others' vids." - HUSNG.com User Movingonup87

Video Pack Breakdown (free video clips directly from the pack embeded below)
Video 1 - Classroom - $1.50 buyin (24 minutes)

Video 2 - Hand History - $1.50 buyin (34 minutes)
Sentin reviews a pair of hand histories that exemplify and expand on the concepts from the $1.50 classroom video. Key situations include how to play in limped pots, reading your opponent's range of hands and raising your button instead of open jamming at short effective stacks.
Video 3 - Extreme Grind - $1.50 buyin (31 minutes)
Sentin grinds the $1.50 level with two major rules: No rematches and 100% button raises. He does this to demonstrate the value of aggression, showing how effective it can be against the average opponent that does not adjust well, and also to put ourselves in a wider number of postflop situations.
Video 4 - Classroom - $3.50 buyin (13 minutes)
Sentin discusses balance in heads up poker. He talks about 3-betting for both value and as a bluff. He also discusses how villains usually react to 3-bet strategies, uses ICMIZER to demonstrate what he's taught, then touches on expanding your 3-bet range.
Video 5 - Hand History - $3.50 buyin (23 minutes)
Sentin goes through games from his original $3.50 grind and discusses developing reads by factoring in what your opponent has done in the match into your current decision. He also talks a lot about bet sizing, both when betting and raising. Thinking in terms of the range of hands your opponent has is a common theme throughout the video. Sentin also discusses facing donk bets (when your opponent leads OOP on the flop), and goes over some mistakes that he made in these matches.
Video 6 - Classroom - $7 buyin (10 minutes)
In this class video Sentin goes into an in depth analysis of in position post flop play. This leads to discussions on a wide variety of "fun" topics such as using aggression to force our opponent to fold the best hand and nailing down our opponents range and then using bet sizing to extract maximum value from weaker holdings. He also continues to stress the importance of continued aggression and even argues that c-betting 100% against most opponents can be a viable strategy. He finishes off with a detailed description of population tendencies in limped pots and how to exploit these tendencies.
Video 7 - Hand History - $7 buyin (30 minutes)
Sentin reviews some of his first games at the $7 level. He examines a number of bet-sizing and gameplay mistakes he made and also discusses making tough river folds when faced with a value-heavy range. Sentin also reviews a match against a player who only 3bet-shoves or folds from the big-blind and then examines a number of interesting post-flop bluffing situations against various opponents.
Video 8 - Extreme Grind - $7 buyin (27 minutes)
In this extreme grind Sentin employs the strategy of limping of 100% of buttons whilst also maintaining a floating strategy both in and out of position. This leads to a lot of interesting post flop scenarios where he discusses concepts such as capped range, using different bet sizes based on your perceived range, over-shoving the river for both value and as a bluff, how to adjust when villian donks a super wet board and how to extract max value when your opponent probably has a draw or a weak value hand.
Video 9 - Classroom - $15 buyin (23 minutes)
Guest producer Rollinas, a talented mid stakes regular, talks about playing postflop out of position. He talks about how to make postflop adjustments based on your opponent's preflop tendencies, value betting as well as bluff catching in limped pots and a variety of raised pot situational advice including floating, when to get it in light, what to do when villain doesn't cbet, playing pairs vs draws and more. The video ends with a 5 minute sections on 3-bet pots.
Video 10 - Hand History - Various buyins (38 minutes)
Rollinas reviews play from his regular hyper turbo matches. He faces an opponent that is a bit unpredictable, and he talks about the prospects of bluffing against that opponent. He also faces an opponent that limps a lot of buttons at the stack sizes decrease, and he talks about how to play certain middling hands against those limps. Other discussion includes value betting single pairs, playing strong but non premium hands OOP facing a raise, and a general strong emphasis on hand reading and range makeup.
Video 11 - Extreme Grind - $15 buyin (33 minutes)
In this extreme grind Sentin employs the strategy of opening 100% of buttons and calling 100% of min-raises out of position. He also tries to check/raise and donk at a high frequency, mix up his bet sizing and float as much as possible. He does this to ensure that it leads to a variety of interesting post-flop scenarios which he then goes on to discuss in a high level of detail and highlights how passive our opponents tend to be when they are faced with the prospect of maintaining any sort of constant aggression on multiple streets.
Video 12 - Classroom - $30 buyin (11 minutes)
In this video Sentin discusses that this is the first level where you may encounter "thinking players" who have a greater understanding of ranges and perceived ranges and that most players still have glaring leaks that can be exploited. He further discusses how to go about finding these weaknesses by constant exploitation of our own perceived range and the incongruities found within our opponent's game. Sentin also outlines the correct use of a hud to further hone in and exploit our opponent's weaknesses.
Video 13 - Hand HIstory - $30 buyin (38 minutes)
This video comprises of both a hand history review of Pokerstars Pro 'talonchick' and also a HUD exercise on employing a game plan at the beginning of a match. In the HH review Sentin discusses concepts such as 3 bet shoving the first hand vs a reg, not over-adjusting to aggressive players, limping to trap, playing 2nd pair out of position on a dry board, value betting lower pairs when there is an Ace on the board and continually stresses the importance of maintaining your aggression in most situations.
