Hi, Era7er! Nice series.

32:00, top right, Q7s: Why did you choose to double check and give up there? Is it worth just to cbet small OTF?

May 6, 2016 | 12:18 a.m.

3:40 with KK: nit :P
that's why they flat your 4bet with AKo 13:13 :))

Jan. 25, 2016 | 7:33 a.m.

exactly 11:17 on replayer window.

In other words u dont think we overbluff this spot. But by this logic if u probe J8 no clubs then we should therefore probe just whole range OTT, because our whole range is almost always overcards. It doesn't seem to be correct.

Jan. 9, 2016 | 12:43 p.m.

11:17. J8o, dont u think u slightly overbluff this spot OTT if probing any random overcards especially with no club? I feel like w have enough 4x and 6x, FDs and finally some overcards with 1 club at least to be a better candidates here.
And in general I dont think we will see many folds after him checking behind on such flop, especially when his range is kind of face up and Ax hands should calldown turn very often in his shoes.

<3 like

1) 07:05, TT, dont you think check back is better here 3 way? Mainly because SB flatting range is quite narrow here and hit this board very hard.

2) 12:50, KQo, may be we should call this flop vs such a small 1/3 pot cbet?

enjoyed showdowns with euro bags and smiling villains :))

hand 2: interesting and viable idea with turning our hand into a bluff. The only one thing I am not sure about - is the sizing, you are suggesting to apply OTR: I thing that something closer to standard one (like 3/4 pot) is better, cause it's hard for us to find so many bluffs in our range to justify an overbet of 80k.

Dec. 2, 2015 | 11:13 a.m.

at 9:00: Sam, u probably read the tree incorrectly: "CO push" and "BU push" there are first in ranges, not overcall vs PKaisers shove. Overcall ranges are in "overcall ranges" page.above.

good series <3

29:44, 56s: Isn't it appropriate spot to triple barrel and fire the river with the absolute bottom of our range? We don't have very many combos of bluffs on such board except 3 combos of 89s and those are blocking the potential river folding villian's 88-99 holdings. In the same time villian don't have many cc combos (may be about 5 combos total - AcJc, AcQc, KcQc, KcJc, QcJc). And I suppose villian will have hard time calling the river even with JTs, KTs, QTs and ATs.
So opposition has only 10 auto-calling combos (5 flushes + 2 quads + 3 TT) and at least 12 auto-folding 88 and 99 combos + I guess decent part of JTs, QTs, KTs, ATs.
What do you think about it?

Sept. 16, 2015 | 4:32 a.m.

good content as always <3

39:43, AK hand. You point out that we want to bet smaller OTT to get value from 7x. I'm not sure but my guess is that on such a ~safe/not scary board our recreactional player is indifferent to betsizing: he always will be inclined to call a turn bet up to even potsize probably with his 7x. OTR I agree, the board really got scary and small bet is reasonable vs 7x hands. But OTT I am up to bet really fat.

Sept. 6, 2015 | 10:08 a.m.

Nice series, Kevin!

One question: 40:50 J7o/ How u choose such spots to run ~no eqity bluff? In this paticular spot opponents range looks like a Tx a lot, isn't it too ambitious to try to fold it on such a dry board, where he is able to calldown 2 bets pretty easy and will look us up very often.

Sept. 5, 2015 | 2:50 a.m.

like a lot this series, especially the last 2 parts of HU play: very interesting and clear explanations and ofc exciting super cool play <3
"10 steps ahead" style of thinking seems to earn money)

Sept. 4, 2015 | 12:55 a.m.

good vid <3

I always wonder if someone else except me run like a sh1t :)

TuTaTenso? is my hero <3

good series as always <3

1) 3:01, QJo : yes, we dont have anything, but board is so dry and safe. May be it's better just to cbet flop to fold out a bunch of K-high and sometimes A-high (if he plays somewhat tight and just hit or fold for example) and to protect against random 6-outers like T9?

2) 14:57, A2s: isn't it ez call on the flop especialy vs such a small cbet having A-high+backdoors?

Post | GregGT posted in Chatter: bad visual quality of some videos

Hey, guys. Its really annoying - quality of some videos really sucks even on 1080. Almost unwatchable stacksizes.

For example this -

compared to this amazing quality

It really makes me tilt! Fix it please!!!

May 17, 2015 | 11:05 a.m.

Era7er, just look at the difference in comparison with this one for example

May 5, 2015 | 1 a.m.

hello, Tyler! enjoing your creation <3

23:00, KK: don't u yhink it's slightly too ambitious to cbet flop there vs 2 live ranges, which have a bunch of Ax both? At first, you block worse calling hands: KQs (you mentioned that he could have onle 1 combo of it) and QJs is just 3 combos, I'm not sure if he calls worse combos of Qxs or some offsuited versions of KQ?
Even if one of them just float us with some JTs stuff- it's pretty hard for us to do anything but check/giving up almost any turn/river, isn't it?
So maybe it's just a slightly closer to check/fold or the key point in the small size of cbet and it's designed to be a blocking bet?

May 3, 2015 | 9:28 a.m.

hey, guys, there is smth wrong with the quality of couple last videos in comparison with the older: 1080p looks pretty bad (like 480). Can you fix it?

p.s. and content is definitely good, thats why I'm so concerned about visual quality ;)

May 3, 2015 | 6:57 a.m.

Hi, guys, good series, enjoyed interesting HU especially. <3

16:35 A4: dont u think turn call is slightly too thin? I mean we can probably call turn vs opponent, who always give up OTR. But on this turn there are so many draws, which have incredible amount of equity against us. And obviously this opponent is able to fire a lot with his say 67 on any club, any diamond, probably on J or Q (cause you are gonna have a lot of naked Tx). Its kind of half of the deck.
Also ace OTR not a clear out for us, it has some reverse implieds, when he has QJ or better Ax with FD.
I think it's really close spot, but vs tough opponent I'm more inclined to fold turn.

Comment | GregGT commented on The Big Ben

very interesing and positive video, enjoyed watching, like! <3

47:15 , FT AQo on BB, I wonder why you didn't even consider shoving pre vs ~24bb stack open. His stats are reasonably loose and according to ICM we can put a lot of pressure on him by this play (exploiting large gap between opening and defending-vs-AI range and so making him calling very tight)

April 17, 2015 | 8:34 a.m.

coach, your videos are cool <3

April 1, 2015 | 2:47 p.m.

where is my "like"? :) <3

Feb. 20, 2015 | 8:43 p.m.

Interesting part, enjoyed it <3

several questions:
1) 2:40 Q4o: don't you think it's slightly too loose ICMwise and final table wise? Yeah, we are getting good price, but a) we also have quite large reverse implied odds; b) we are playing against quite good/smart/capable opposition, who can potentially create a lot of troubles for us, where we just can't feel comfortable at all given it's shitty hand and ICM playing huge role.
In numbers - we need 19% to call. Against 70% BU-opening range we have this:

MP3 43.78% 41.88% 1.90% { Q4o }
CO 56.22% 54.32% 1.90% { 22+, A2s+, K2s+, Q2s+, J3s+, T4s+, 94s+, 83s+, 73s+, 63s+, 53s+, 43s, A2o+, K4o+, Q5o+, J6o+, T6o+, 96o+, 85o+, 74o+, 64o+, 54o }

Obviously we never realise all 41,88% of our equity. Suppose we have realisation factor about 50%. Then given our range equity we get 41,88%*0,5=20,9%. Looks marginal, compared to our odds pre. And ICM factor and reverse implieds can easily make this from breakven to unprofitable.

As for me- compared to 75o spot (16:19) vs Lequend: I think its way more profitable to flat 75o even vs 2,5x, getting 3to1, but playing it IP vs equal stack (on which we can apply pressure) and having more playable 1-gap connector, than flat Q4o OOP vs CL.

2) 18:52, TT looks quite marginal ICMwise if we are going to get it in by 3b/5b. Obv in chipEB situation its hugely profitable and excellent plan to play TT this way, but im not sure how ICM like this. Tbh I've never liked ICM: it looks like it make us play like a covard lil pussies ^^
It looks like all the players at the table are playing regardless to ICM - several light get-ins (lequenden raise/4betshove w/55 for 35bbs, your raise/4betshove with AJo). I know that we need to combat vs good opponents not to be abused, but in the same time we should consider ICM. I wonder how to feel this borderline between battling and ICM.

Very cool series with unorthodox concept. Looks fresh and exciting. Waiting for next parts <3

guys most probably having fun on PCA right now, dont bother them :-P

P.S. excellent stuff! thumb up

Hi, Craig! I enjoy this series.

What would you do if Jason decided to bet river (say 50/67/100% of pot) in the last 99 hand?

April 2, 2014 | 8:39 p.m.

Hi, Nick

"...if you're making 1% EV, do you get it in?..."

I think this depends on the size of our edge in particular game spot. Say, in super tough table, when you are probably one of the weakest players - you should take every +EV spot, no matter how much it is. On the other hand, when you are at the table full of fish - you definitely should pass some marginal spots, cause you really dont need this increase of variance, you can safely earn money by using more simple and reliable spots. 

Ofc definite numbers are unclear and you need to estimate it in process. But at the fishy table I dont take 1%, I'll take 5-6% at least for example

March 31, 2014 | 11:31 a.m.

Gray, dont u like to check AA back this flop? I think this is the flop that we are gonna check back decent percent of times with air(cause it hits BB's range hard). 

March 27, 2014 | 8:51 p.m.

good series, Dylan!

33:45, A4o: dont u think we rep pretty narrow range when bet this turn and river if its bricks off? Basically it looks more like a busted draws than value. I mean I dont think we can play for example J8o this way for value in his eyes, so he can simply check/call check/call 6x on blank river. 

May be its better to check behind turn and go to showdown or sometimes bluff some rivers to rep more credible range?

March 25, 2014 | 12:30 p.m.

09:38/ Nick, in the 3rd scenario u said T9s made same amount of money in comparison with previous scenario. Actually not: in the 3rd case we got +1k and in the 2nd we got +10k. Look more attentively at the number below the chart :)
