I think Craig nails it with the swaps, great way to maintain morale and keep some sense of comradery instead of FML-ing if you brick off hard. I've been cutting down my tables recently as well but like James I find myself not passing up a lot of big prizepools on sunday and being overloaded for 1-2 hrs during the day, but I compensate with good sleep and good preparation on saturday/sunday morning

Ansky being range aware and with description of opener wouldnt be shipping AA/KK here, the main concern here is all the dominated draws, too lazy to stove it right now

Get moved to a new table been there roughly 2 orbits and have been playing pretty snug,

Effective stacks ~37k

Folds to Nacho Barbero in CO, he opens to 2k at 500-1k/100
We flat OTB with AxJs
Pierre Neuville and DN come along

Flop QxTx4s checks to us, we bet 3800, Neuville calls from SB -

Turn 8s he thinks for a bit and leads 4k, we think to ourselves wtf and?.....

Start at pretty soft table, get moved to a new very tough tables with a bunch of people I know - table is talkative and chatty and not much has happened a lot of multiway cbet/fold hands

Stacks are ~27k effective to start the hand

Folds to us OTB, we open JhTh to 500 at 100/200-25, SB FrenchDawg (Marc-Andre Ladouceur, HSNL CAP/6m NLHE Player with extensive live success) 3b SB to 1700, we Flat

Jd Td 4x He bets 2200, we make it 5800 (I def think flatting is fine but I decided to raise this particular time), he tanks for a bit and calls

Turn 7d he checks we ?

I guess we could also discuss the flop sizing

I assume they are quite a bit, most of his flush combos and all his straight combos CTS will be cbetting ~100% on the flop, I'd feel okay calling if UTG folded assuming its CTS pulling some kind of weird KhXnon-H or weird spazz based on being too cool/awesome/good for tournaments - but UTG with the snap seems likely he has a flush he isn't folding

unexploitable vs balance/situational/exploitable

readless I think your looking at way too many pat T/9s here to not draw, it would be a lot closer with J5432 or J6543 but I think with a very live 7 vs his call/pat range we kinda have to peel one and bink

everytime u say series it sounds like serious, it makes me giggle

I know what villain had! :)

Huds are always good, the key is to be able to understand their significance and understand how fast stats converge -worst case its always a quick look a recent history if your multitabling and cant pay loads of attention to one specific table

Trying to make this as constructive as possible; def need to go deeper to deconstruct ranges "We have a good hand" and "this is a good board run out" isn't really gonna cut it.

Dunno how you edited the video but it would be nice to see you analyze other peoples play and view of it (general assumptions, reads or notes you would make based on those) - just skipping to everytime you have AK+ or QJs otb is kinda bland

Overall pretty bland video but I'm sure you'll get the hang of it.

Dec. 14, 2012 | 8:06 a.m.

Yeah I can relate, good video overall looking forward to the material in the future

before anyone beats me to it, if you fold this you should quit poker etc

it's obviously a call, now after that you just gotta break down how much the mincash means to you, and that's a question only you can answer

Dec. 13, 2012 | 5:35 a.m.

more or less, but probably more

Dec. 11, 2012 | 10:21 p.m.

Also when you 3b Schapp you mentioned he would be opening top50% of hands, don't you think he'd tighten up significantly considering the ICM implications with a thinking player OTB there?

Dec. 11, 2012 | 7:59 p.m.

vs a loose/passive player leading the 87 seems ideal vs someone who will be pot controlling a ton like you mentioned?

Dec. 11, 2012 | 7:50 p.m.

Because of his perceived weak range I think he can assume we are valuebetting fairly wide in this spot, so bet/folding 7x feels disgusting, that added to the fact that he probably cbets nearly 100% with his Jx combos, maybe checking back AJ some of the time.

He's creative enough to cry and call IMO.

don't sell yourself short Ben, you used to be a good MTT player in your own rights ;)
