just as a small sidenote. you have A4s and not AQs, so you do not block any of the broadway flush combos.

Do you have JTdd your preflop range, or is QJs the bottom of your flatting range pre? Because i would prefer turning JTdd and ATdd into bluffs by the river. 

edit: actually it makes more sense to do it with QJdd on the turn since ATdd and JTdd can just show down.

37:21 : I would checkraise the TT combos, that dont include a spade just to randomize.

I mean, once he bets and we call the flop i would say that this turn is way better for our range (unless we would expect him to bet alot of his 2x hands, in which x/r flop would be the better option), than for his, and he should know that, which in most cases should lead to him betting the turn at a relatively low frequency.

what about leading the turn in the first hand instead of cr?

I have to disagree here. I really like the analyzing right after seeing the hand in question.

I actually think that folding out hands that have ~25% equity is quite an accomplishment. I would prefer checking hands like Q8s and K8s as they are less vulnerable to overcards and betting 86s. Also not having any 8x hands in our betting range gets us in trouble on 8x turn runouts where now our opponent can just raise/overbet relentlessly against us.

7:20 K2hh:

Ad7x would be the the best hand to x/shove followed by AdJx if you have that in your flatting range. I also think that im pretty comfortable x/shoving all nutflushes on the river given that its BTN v BB.

Btw. if you think that you only get called by boats you should probably just turn anything that blocks his boat combos into bluffs.

In the 93ss hand. Doesn't your opponent basically get odds to call with almost anything on the flop?

Forgot to mention that im specifically talking about defending OOP.

Hi Raphael! Glad to have you here at runitonce, as i always been wondering about your playstyle.

I do have a few questions about your general gameplan.

1)When and how do you decide to adjust your defending range against 3bets and does the general postflop strategy of your opponent affect your decision in any way?

 -->  At  the 100NL/200NL games you find a very high variety of 3betting strategies, ranging from 3betting 5% to 15%.

In general it would probably wise to get away from old phrases like "too strong to fold, too weak to call" and instead start of thinking only in terms of EV. 

But to do so you need to understand how EV works. 

For instance, there might be opponents where folding 63s has a higher EV than 3betting or calling it, making folding the most +EV play (still losing 1bb).
