Which is why i chose to over bet the flop due to villain being very aggressive - is this a general mistake?

Button is a reg from what ive noticed thus far.. Is sitting on alot of tables in the lobby - havent seen them get out of line to much, but havent played many hands with them.
PF:is KJo alright to flat here? or should i be 3B/Fold this hand?
T: Should I X/R turn to charge any spade draws, or is X/C better and just fold to any spade river?

Villain is a weak/recreational player. Haven't been playing with them very long, but have noted to be fairly spewy and very aggressive.
is my River play Full of Sh*t?
I dont expect villain to ever have a King or an Eight in this spot mainly because Most recreational players will CB that flop almost 100% of the time.
I felt like Villains Bet on the River tho was fairly weak and that a good size raise might take them off of a hand like Ace high or even some small pp's?
To ambitious or just made a bad decision in bluffing a fish?

Very interesting thread for sure. I understand OP's concern...Even me being a subscriber for 2 years now I just learned this year that James OBST was a RIO coach here... i seen him on tv playing the WSOP then happened to scroll through the coach listings and was like OH hey i watched him on tv lol.
yes the company is Hiring coaches that you me and many other probally never heard of - the Poker community tho is massive and there are tons of winning players that many people have never heard of.
I think it's great to see coaches and even Master Phil Post results.
Unless your just downright Crushing the game at the high stakes may that be Mtt's or cash i still think that there is a ton of content to learn from that is uploaded and that is continuously being put out. Saying that coaches/content is slipping is just rubbish imo.
But hey, If you feel like the coaches/content is slipping, Submit a video to phil and the RIO staff to become a new coach for 2017!

@39:15 842r with K5s
You said that this flop is a very dynamic board and that you want to charge villains hands...
Can you elaborate on this? What exactly do you mean by Dynamic board - it seems somewhat dry to me.
What sort of hands are we charging to continue? I know i don't play anything close to these stakes but wont hands like Ax's, PP, and some gut shot type hands and everything else folds...So are we just charging hands like 56,53,76 etc?

Leaning more towards the recreational side, due to not topping up to a full 100BB and has limped a couple times thus far.

I don't think you will get 3 streets of value with this hand.
Yes we have an OESD but some of our outs are taken away due to hearts.
I think check back flop or turn is probally best and evaluate the river.
villain may look you up on the river with a and like 99 88 66 55 as well.

I agree with the first statement here.
It seems odd in the regular tables i play - but i min raise Button and it goes through alot, way more than it probably should.. You find players who just call to much - these players i just tighten up my opening range slightly... and then i see players who fold the BB like 75% where u can literally open ATC, when they 3B u just fold unless u have a very premium hand, and if they call, you just play straight forward poker.
from my experience players from 5NL-100NL fold there BB far to much, regardless of the sizing.

I don't give these types of players too much credit with a raise given their stats unless proven otherwise. alot of these players are playing one table just for fun... and they will raise with a hand like 92o and win just out of straight up boredom... I've called many players with stats like that who open shove for 80+bb with a hand like A5s for them to show up with T6o or Q2o.
like stated above I perfer calling in position even with the two weaker players behind and go from their.

Great Video Paul keep up the good work.
Seems like all my questions have been answered in the comments already.
My only suggestion would be maybe try doing a Post audio video - would be nice to hear a little more explanation about certain hands/spots while you not having to worry about the time bank and all. Just a suggestion, really enjoy the video and looking forward to the next one

Thank u for the wishes but i haven't seen anything in return yet.
I keep e-mailing them at least 3 times a week but nothing yet...
if i get it, great, if not then it is what it is, got myself a RKA Token - Change my password every 2 weeks, ...... Cut my losses and move on i guess

Ah that does make sense - never thought about it like that i guess.
I ran the hand through Crev today for a couple hours. It was showing to shove hands like KQ,JTs, and all sets and then to call with hands like QJ,T9, and 78s etc.
Thank you Tyler for your input. Always much appreciated :D

Villain is a very strong reg, Have roughly 400+ hands with them or so. Super Nova player, Stats are 29/21/7.
I have a few notes on this player which apply to this situation fairly well. One where they Over bet Turn IP with pair+Draw(X2) and FD(X1). Jammed turn CB on Draw heavy board with complete air - King high (X1) - the brackets are the amount of times ive seen it happen.
Also bet Pot with Gut-shot on the flop.(X1)
Villain's over bet on the turn made me feel like he had at least Pair+Draw on this board given his range.
To flat call im getting 1.5 on my money which i need roughly 40%. Even with some random bluffs im still roughly 38%.
That being said, i felt like my hand is to good to fold and that Calling Turn bet would put me in a very sticky situation on the river on alot of run-outs.
Here i elected to Raise, a little on the larger side and started yelling FOLD!!! at the screen haha. Once Villain Shoves the rest i half to call at this point given the pot odds.
Im unsure if i played this hand badly

I would size up on the flop with 2 weak players in the pot. it's a scary board and there are some bad cards that can come. So charge them for it. I would raise to $2 on the flop. They are going to call with alot of weaker aces and even a ten here. on the turn I'd ship it.

As stated above this is a very small sample and I wouldn't worry much about the numbers until you have a large sample.
That being said ur actually winning almost 28 bb in the big blind because you would be-100bb/100 if u folded every bb.
