I specifically signed up (again) to RIO to watch your first SnG liveplay video and was obviously super stoked to see the 2nd part released today! Great vid as always, SnG content is always appreciated.
Quick feedback on the "presentation": It was quite confusing for me to see your tables pop-up all over and change position while hands were going on etc. On the one hand I totally get that you need to be comfortable playing in your usual environment, but it might be worth considering turning off the table organising software for the video? Also, if you feel a lack of time to explain things in-depth, it might be worthwhile to record your screen during a session and then later commentate over it where you can pause and fast forward as you please.
In case it becomes ever a consideration to do a student review thingy of either live-play or HH review, feel free to hit me up. I might be a good guinea pig for the community, because I used to play until two or three years ago up to the 100s 6max Turbos, now got during COVID-19 back into the game, playing 7s/15s/30s 6max Turbos and will make a lot of "common mistakes" that might be quite instructional.
Keep up the good work!

I still need to play more hands and get more data, but I was looking at 3b pots lately. And from my limited sample and from seeing which hands regs show up with at showdown (and me having called 3bets too lose myself) I am more and more inclined to size up IP to punish those wide callingranges and too small 4bet ranges. So I am tending more and more towards 3.5x IP.

did you misread that hand maybe? because you give villain all Axs and writen villain "opening ... in the CO"?
not saying it is a super easy fold ingame, but looking at it now it is an easy fold for me.
villain should have so few bluffs here. of course it would suck if he jams AJ, but I don't see a 17/15 doing that too often on a flush board.

Am I a nit if I want to fold flop vs 3/4 donk without a heart? I feel like with this sizing people are rarely checking turn, so I am not sure if we get the right price on the flop. His draws have 50% against us or we have 4 outs, sometimes 7.

I second everything that has been said before, I just have to add that I would rather check back flop with T9s type hands that block the gutshots of KJs, for example. A9s is too much of a value bet for me to put it in the checking range.

I agree that I might be too optimistic about getting him to fold anything. I might be thinking too much about the red line and "having to fight for pots", will have to look into that once I have more hands.

I think I am doing a mix of those, denying value was basically my idea. So make him fold out all those KQ, KJ, QJ, 98 type of hands. And the plan was certainly to bet turn, check river, but then his minraise confused me and that is how we ended up with this weird hand :D

I agree that you don't have to raise that combo, you have so many better ones to do it with. I would also like the raise more against a smaller size. He bets quite large into 2 people on a board that connects quite well with defending ranges. River is a bit whatever on NL10, difficult to make assumptions.

i disagree with Shadowfax, i started cbetting 1/3 vs recs as well, it is crazy how many zero equity bluffs they make vs small sizings. only at turn and river i tend to size up vs recs. the only adaption regarding the 1/3 cbet i make vs recs is that i am not betting the whole 100% of range, but more like 80%. they will never exploit our checking range, so i check f.e. KK on A72r BU vs BB and stuff like that

maybe on higher stakes with less rake and looser 4b ranges.
but i am quite certain that it is not profitable to 3b/c a hand like A5s with a SPR of 1.2x or something with tight 4b ranges, even IP and given your small-ish 4b sizing (which i like though)

don't see a reason not to cbet range on this flop here. also not sure why you give him A2-5s?
as played easy call on the turn, if he'd bet 80% i would start thinking about folding, but not vs 45% after two checks from the PFA
