I'm a bit confused at 38min. You would bluff with 9x on the river at 38min? I would think a lot of qx+ of his would go into a larger size ott however he can easily have tt/jj and bigger 9x but it feels kind of odd to bluff 98s etc

at 6:30, what hand otr do you call that you dont just bet yourself? Not sure he has the incentive to bet much as like ak aq prob doesnt call a bet and all ur overpairs are bet x betting and u presumably balance some bluffs

Dude first off, terrible way of voicing your concerns. Second, stop calling him baby, it is weird. Third, who tf are you to give him a grade? "I have to give you a D- , and that’s not good."... yeah thanks for clarifying a D- is not good buddy...
I really like chris's content and i appreciate the number of tables we get to see so there is constantly action. And shut up about the way he talks, I think he articulates well and what he says is good and helpful. I have no idea how old you are but you sound very immature ("I wanted to throw my phone and never play poker again"?)

You mention a few spots where you dont have great immediate fold equity and therefore why you arent too agressive on flop (like JT3dd ep v bb). but i notice pio be aggresive in spots where sure we dont have great fold equity but potentially are turn spots where we do which makes up for that... Like pio chooses to raise weaker draws in spots where fold could be 10-20%.. so what are your thoughts on correlation of immediate fold equity and profitability?

at 26min with jtdd versus a2hh, you say we need to have some nut flushes on our checking range. is this a spot where need to develop a balanced chk/call range on river?
How do we know this is a spot where we do that rather than mostly have give ups on the river when check? Is it because turn he isnt super polar?

what do you expect his betting range to be on the j97cc flop for half pot? when he bet called, it felt pretty strong to me and not sure about turn shove... think JTs bets and QTs KTs ATs all have incentive to bet to fold you off aq ak and pocket pairs 76s etc... equity denial is valid but it felt thin to me given AJ KJ QJ probably fold

great reply juan! on j9hh hand, dont we not need to chk nutted hands to protect cuz we dont rly need to worry too much about defending enough bc we follow through the river a lot and him floating wide to get himself in this scenario where we chk riv and overfold, just would just not be profitable?

great video once again !!
what makes you say your hand suffers a lot frrom c/r with 87 on 7629 at 16min? how do you know or chk for that?
at 30min, with jj, do u bet this hand and chk aa/kk on qqt5, are we block betting riv cuz cant go big on river id think.... i usually bet chk bet here, is that line very inferior?
also, are u checking most rivers with qt on t329 in last hand of vid? why not use jt qt and chk turn if they cant shove most rivers? or can they?

grerat vid juan! but arent we getting a bigger overfold when we block bet on AKJ cuz the pocket pairs and suited connectors fold to any size bet relative to when we pot it (when it is clear to fold the pockets and suited connectors and therefore may be easier to reach minimum defense frequency versus the larger bet)?

thank you. so is there a way to better track its affect on ur winrate?

when you say something is better or worse by a 10th of big blind, what does that really mean? like does that make your strategy worse by 10bb/100? does it work like that?

Since EVs often run so close in most sims I have noticed between bet one size versus another or even just bet versus chk, how do you really learn anything about what is best? It seems like the size doesnt matter too much, as long as u balance it right. It's a bit discouraging that i have noticed that but curious your thoughts
May 31, 2018 | 5:14 a.m.
great video. really like your thought process.
at 34min, you talk about the IP player on k725, and why is a7 betting? Is it like a bluff? oop chk a lot of kx.
and you say aq bets unblocking flush draw? Why does it want to bet unblocking the FD and chk with FD when 7x likes to bet with the FD and chk without the FD?

you say you cant raise T Macha's limps too much at end bc 'mexican so short' but he fairly tight and have 25bb so isnt on total verge of busting just yet. I know you have more chips than him but dont we have to loosen up slightly relative to like if he was loose dude with 15bb

at 15min, u rly think guy has flush 2% of time? how wide are betting 2/3rds here? Like he has 7 flush combos (KQdd KJdd JTdd KTdd QJdd QTdd T9dd) and then 44/88/55 (9 combos) and maybe some AQ AJ ATs (18 combos) and some bluffs like JT T9 (6 combos) and possible 6d6x. what else bets?
