Great Video Nuno, really enjoyed this video along with the first part. I mainly play 6 max cash, but have taken some small interest into HUNL as i find the game interesting and i believe it will help with my cash game as well. Keep up the great content. Look forward to ur next video :D

All points that needed to be made, have been made i think..
Want my opinion... stop playing zoom and switch to regular tables.. even on a site like Stars, the stakes are softer and much easir to exploit players.. Just need to learn table selction very well... even half decent table selection will be good for ur winrate.

I agree and understand both sides of the stories.
Yes there is a ton of live play videos but there are also a ton of theory videos, just about any sort of area in the game from pre-flop to BB defense to 3Betting ect there is a theory video on that topic Which is great.
a diversity/something different as mentioned above would be cool to see from time to time too i think.
I personally have no complaints in the Quality/Quantity of videos being put out.
I dont watch much if any MTT videos personally or PLO so i cant comment on those videos.

@bubbleNedRum I dont think at these stakes some players will fold those hands that i listed. they might but as you stated you will see a lot of random bullshit.
If we call, are we folding to any Club on the river that is not a Q or 3?
Feels very exploitable - yes i know we are playing micros in this spot.
But If we can get villain to call with the FD's and PP type hands then that's a win for us.
we get our money in with the best hand, and if villain sucks out oh well, that's the way the cookie crumbles,
Im not saying calling Turn is bad, But we Should be calling River a big part of the time here. we are getting a little over 2:1 on our money and only need roughly 30% equity to call which we have.
I guess after looking more into it.. i know i said i would fold river on how it was played out in my first response...But knowing me, i would call and take note...But i am a pay off wizard and i hate folding lol cause you cant win when u fold :P. So take it with a grain of salt i guess

I would jam Turn personally. Put villain to the decision,
Our hand is strong here. 1 Combo of KJs and 1 combo of AJs that beats us and 3 combos of 66.
Villain can be firing T9c, 89c AKc, AQc KQc and pending villain type, they might even double barrel a hand like 88-TT here.
By raising we put villain in a tough spot, we are head of his FD's and at these stakes if villain has a hand like QQ-AA..they are going to have a tough time folding over pairs.
How it was played i would fold River.
April 26, 2017 | 4:08 p.m.
I agree with Wizz here. Villain has a lot of Draws that they may be willing to double barrel on this board texture. As you stated we are fairly high up in our range, So i would most likely Call Turn, and pending river, i might Fold to any bet that's higher than 2/3rds...maybe half pot but that would be villain dependent for me.
T9s,JTs,KJs,AK,98s,TT,JJ, are all combos that villain will barrel with.
And if the river bricked out and say villain bet half pot, id be inclined to call just to see what they have since we have a decent hand in this spot and for information value. That being said this is one of the reasons why i play regular tables compared to Zoom/Fast tables.

Wow thats one of the coolest responses for a pio view ive ever seen i think. Nice work.
Ya i dont think villain will get out of line too much mainly because they are just looking to increase their hourly when playing 11 tables.
April 22, 2017 | 2:13 p.m.
Villain does however have some FD's which might fire the river as a bluff....I feel like my Jack is a good blocker for alot of villains range...
According to CREV it says to call 100%.
I feel like it can go either way tho.

Any notes/stats on villain? Villains Fold to 3B IP is what id be looking at before thinking of 3B this hand over a decent sample.. if there F3B is something like 35%.. id just fold this hand and move on, If it is high something like 65%+ then ya 3B makes sense.
Flop CBet is good.
Turn i Would Check and see what villain does. Villain will most likely be betting, but as stated above i think we can fold Turn based on not having the right odds to call vs a value heavy range

Pending time zones/people maybe set up a group study session once or twice a month at first..more if people enjoy them.
If ur interested send me a PM and I will add you in or just add Taunto_88 to your Skype :D

I would like to Say props to Zenfish for the the Long and very thorough posts. Lots of detail and great explanation :D Started reading this post and i was like..what does he mean by this...
2 posts later it's explained.. Thank u ZenFish,.

I agree with Bubble.. 4B All AJ and KQ combo's is too much. I would probally flat AJs and maybe 4B AQs due to blockers..pending villains fold to 4B stats.. I feel like 4B AJo here is going to have u 4B bluffing to much.
As played id call river.
April 16, 2017 | 3:28 a.m.
Just thinking outside of the box..
What about Check Raising the flop...Providing Villain would most likely bet his Axd if u check.. We could X/R the flop for a good sizing and with a non diamond on the turn we could Jam Turn and put villain in an ugly spot(even though our jam is 2.5x pot ish.. maybe not jam but we could bet pot.. or just over pot on the turn)....Or just play some poker if villain calls...
If u call the Raise on the turn... what are u doing when the river comes a diamond..?
Thoughts? i know its not the standard line..Just looking at it from a different angle thats all.
April 16, 2017 | 3:14 a.m.
Personally, id Fold pre and open 97s.
As played I would Cbet flop for half pot.. and give up if villain called and we didnt improve.
Check fold flop isnt a bad idea..
Opening 97o with high rake format is just going to loose money in the long run at these stakes IMO.

Welcome to the Team.
April 16, 2017 | 1:16 a.m.
I think we can check back this flop some % of the time as well.
on the turn i would most likely call it off imo. Depends on villain as well but like Mwinn stated Folding is a mistake.
Question tho is if we call and miss the River.. are we just folding to a River bet/jam which is why i kinda like a jam on the turn.. but im no expert.
April 7, 2017 | 5:31 a.m.
Might be a dumb question - I understand calling QQ,JJ,TT...but why without a heart?
April 7, 2017 | 5:20 a.m.
I know its a few months old.. but i have a question.
@18.40 mark.. it shows us Jamming more A2h hands more than A5h... any reason why pio would do this? Wouldnt they be the roughly the same.. or A5h being more?

Personally at 5nl, im happy with Flatting AKo to a 3B IP..and even to that small of a 4b.
AKs id call off pre-flop. You cant really hate life to much for staking off 100bb at the micros with Aks pre-flop.
Thats just my 2-cents.
March 29, 2017 | 4:42 p.m.
I think someone more qualified may half to answer my question on this but Could we Over bet the Turn once villain checks? something like 1.2x - 1.5xpot maybe? I am not to sure tho if that would be a good or bad play. Only thinking this because we block some of villains continuing range i think..i could be wrong about this part tho.please correct me if im wrong.
I think part of your thought process might be slightly flawed in respect to you don't think regulars will 3B 88 or 99 here.. yes i agree with you most wont 3B QJ here..maybe some..maybe some % of the time.. but 88+ i can see for sure. Even if your opening 20%ish from MP.. 88 has more than 50% equity against that range so villain can easily have all sets and over pairs in this spot. I think betting the river your basically looking to fold out hands like AK, KQ AJ, AQ sort of hands. Which we block some AK KQ and AJ type hands... Most other hands in their range are going to be doing pretty good in this spot i believe.

Like ZenFish Stated, it is Micro stakes and it's hard to get people to fold a decent hand at these stakes...
From my experience when players lead out like that into multiple players..they either have a set..or at least TPTK sort of hands... i dont mind the call on the flop... I would make a small raise on the turn..and given the stakes probally call off if villain jams.
Reason is because villain never has QQ here... We block 66 and 88... so that leaves... Higher Flush Draws,a set of 77,TPTK sort of hands, and T9(in which we have some suck out outs if they do have T9 here.).. So id be pretty happy getting money in on the turn.
The river imo is a give up after calling.. yes theirs lots of dead money..but like you said..if villain is leading out with Sets and TP type hands..they just hit the nuts and your hand looks like what it is, a busted FD. Id be surprised to see most 25nl players fold top set on the river... i personally would even have a hard time folding that i think.
I also think tho 68s is too loose from UTG, yes theirs a recreational player in the blinds like u said..but you still have 4 other players to get through in which your hoping they dont 3B you. Personally id fold this and pick a much better hand to open from UTG..but that's my 2cents.

Pre-flop is somewhat okay in my opinion.
I believe Resolve and Zenfish already said everything that needs to be said for this part.
Me personally i would either call or fold this hand pre-flop pending players behind to act.
In the micro's especially 5nl we have reduced Fold Equity mainly because majority of micro stakes players don't like to fold. When you 3B i would lean more to 3B for value rather than a bluff.
Post flop i would check it down/give up like resolve stated.
Your line looks like your full of Sh*t because most players wouldn't flat AK IP..
Yes AK is in your range in this spot but villain has Queens and with 1 over card on the board they are probably never folding.
The river Jam i don't like at all. Way to much to risk.. if it was only 100bb effective stacks...maybe.. but when your that deep, 400-500bb deep.. theres really no point.
You don't win money at the micros from bluffing in spots like these. check down/give up post flop and move on. Tons of recreational players and better spots to get your money in.
