Thanks for the feedback. On the turn I was trying to set up a river shove, but had to reevaluate once villain decided to GII on the turn. My thinking was that JJ is our most vulnerable over pair on this board and needs the most protection hence the c-bet

Hi Pete, could you expand on the discussion around the 5:40 mark and how specific rake structure affects our preflop decisions? For example a 5NL rake structure where you're only going to reach the cap if it's an multiway all in pot vs 500NL where you're going to reach the cap pretty frequently. In a game where you're raked heavily because of the % rake rather than the cap (ie 5NL), are you more incetivised to flat wider IP and in the BB to keep pots smaller, and only 3b with a tighter range, or are you trying to avoid going postflop at all costs because the rake is essentially an uncapped 5%?

Bit unsure about this spot. Villain is an unknown with reg-like stats, but first time I've played against them at a time of day which I play frequently. In hindsight, hard to see too many value combos in villain's range other than 88 or TT. I'm not sure if they would have 66 in this spot, or if they'd have any straight combos. Could be slowplaying AA/KK etc. That being said, turn raises in pool are usually pretty value heavy, but there are a few draws villain could be semi-bluffing with

Hey Pete, what are the merits to putting this hand in to our raising range on the 4h6c9h board? My thinking was that villain is laying such a great price when we have a huge amount of equity, that raising flop vs an overly aggressive reg would just lead to them sticking around or 3 betting us (I promise I was thinking this before I watched it happen!) This seems like a hand which won't have too much trouble realising equity OOP, and if we complete our draw we can continue to let villain fire in to us on later streets, or consider turning it in to a bluff if we don't. Alternatively, are we just trying to build a pot whilst we have so much equity? Thanks!
