KQ hand... how do you construct your leading range in order to:
a) not be easily explotable by raises on the flop
b) not be easily exploitable by cbets on when you don't lead.
To me it seems pretty hard to balance, especially against a stronger hand which is UTG on this flop!

Good luck opening Q9o on CO with RedBaron on the BTN :)
About that hand, you mention that he is going to fold KQdd or QJdd and thbecause of that it's better not to have it. I agree, but I was wondering... do you think red baron ever plays these hands differently? Does he have a raising range in position in that spot on the flop or turn? Do you think there are some merits to it, or it's better to just not split your range either on the flop or turn?
And do you think he is the toughest reg at your tables?

Hi, I didn't end the video (I haven't even seen the result), but I just had to pause it because I disagree JTo is a good shove over other hands.
First of all it is blocking the most important folding hand which is JT!!! It is 16 combos which OTB for sure plays like that. AJ and AT may play differently, but JT mostly plays like that to the river.
I took a quick look at flopzilla and otb calls OTR with 23 fh combos, 64 Kx and 90 Qx (my asumption). It leaves approximately about 56.7% calls on the river so our bluff should succeed acout 43%. Of course this are assumptions
Withouth blocking anything he calls 69.4% OTR (I assumed 46% fold on flop, 28% fold on turn).
If we hold our actual hand, he calls 71.1% or an increase of 1.7%.
If we hold 87ss as you said, he calls 73.7% or an increase of 4.1%, so yes, 87s is a worse bluffing hand than JTo.
I guess the worst combo would be a combination of both spade and str8 draws, so ATss leaves with a 75.1% call with an increase of 5.7%. This is huge in terms of ev lol
So I was wrong, and yes I agree JTo is the best bluff. T9o would be even better if we holded it!
NH now I see the result... ouch! :)
