Can't say for sure why but some reason would be that he knows SB is 3betting extremely wide.

Say he's 3betting something like this 22+, A2s+, K9s+, Q9s+, J9s+, T9s, 98s, 87s, ATo+, KJo+, QJo (19.5%) of hands, but he only calls with something like this 22+, ATs+, KQs, AJo+ (10%). In this case he would pick up the ~840 dead money about 50% of the time, and with these ranges KTs has about 40% equity when called. Keep in mind these ranges are just made up examples and I don't have time to go through all the math. I purposely used a 3B range of about 2x as many combos as his calling range to simplify things. But if this example was true, especially with that antes and the large 4x 3B sizing there is quite a bit of dead $ in the pot.

Now you could play with these #s if SB doesn't call it off this wide your equity with KTs goes down but you will pick up the dead $ more often so it could still be profitable.

I'm assuming he's just 3betting super wide and or not calling the shove wide enough. Certainly this is a fine combo to flat as well, maybe it was just a misclick we can't really know for sure.

I like the in depth analysis as it really gives you something to think about.  On the other hand getting through more of the footage would be nice as well, especially if you don't think you will be able to get through it all at your current rate of progress. 

I'm just happy you're making NL videos more frequently lately and even though I don't play much HU anymore I still enjoy and learn from these videos

I've logged on a few times to see what was running but haven't actually played.  The first thing I noticed was the cash games seem to all have a 50bb max buyin.

The 87s hand where you shove the river over his 1/2p bet. I would almost always shove this as with the action it will be so rare that we are beat as you had mentioned. I agree that you won't get called much but if you're not jamming here it will be harder to rep stuff in the future imo. I'm curious what you would do with a hand like 98 or 99/TT assuming you didn't 4b them PF, with his line looks so much like a thinish value bet unless he's trying to level you you're pretty rarely good. Against his line I think jamming with hands like that would be nice to be able do and not jamming 87s which so near the top of your range for your line will make it hard to balance. Actually the way the hand played even if he had made a bigger bet around $200 as you had mentioned I'd still kind of want to jam.

Curious on your thoughts as I am definitely prone to value own myself in some spots.

I have this problem too sometimes when using firefox, I'm not sure what it is but they seem to always work when I use chrome.

I did enjoy the leaks hiding in plain sight video, more of these please. it was similar to his philosophy videos on BF which are great btw.

I have been thinking about this lately as well. As a former bluefire member before Phil left and that site went south, the main reason I signed up here was his videos. Though PLO is and has been his main game for a long time he made some very good NL videos for bluefire and kept the videos pretty even between the two games. No offense to any of the other coaches but I feel like the NL content is not the same caliber as the PLO content. It would be really nice if either Phil could make a few more NL videos or if possible could add another top NL guy to the roster.
