they both bluffcatchers, villain doesn't valubet worse hands and 7 blocker doesn't interact neither with value not bluffing range (77 for OOP goes for big size). So calling hands which have more outs to improve and suck out villain ''nutted'' range

Nice stuff
1. 18 minute 2nd table when you got straight, what bluffs will you use for that size? Looks to me that donking is nice play but not sure about size and frequency.
2. 28minute interesting river lead with KT (first table). I would agree with you if villian have many of those 2 pairs, otherwise I prefer let him opportunity to bluff his Ace high. Because by leading we just chopping with Kx and folding all air ( 2 pairs/sets arent much in his range, but yeah if they do mergy bet can make sense)

Side notes from video - To me seems both rather tight plays from BU (RFI) and SB ( Posflop, too much checking OOP)

Nov. 14, 2019 | 12:06 p.m.

2/3 is good. 1/2 is smallish considering villian putted 1bb in the pot

Nov. 14, 2019 | 10:58 a.m.

Would just raise min donk for value, if action goes nasty can fold after.
When you raise flop, you not getting too much action behind because SB/BB hit this texture fairly well and MP/BTN have to play carefully.

River I guess jamming and hoping that crazy player call after investing so much money. I can see reasons behind call, but feel like slightly less EV and MP wont be calling along without anything

people read but too shy to write, and overall it is much easier to read than put pressure to make reply or post so keep good work

Alright we are chopping with 6 (AK) thats - 12$ winning to us, we are losing to 6 (JJ,33) - 20$ to us (rest amount of money).
Though if BB calling 33 there preflop that likely weak player which can possible overplay or find spazz.

We need to be good ~ 1/3 of the times, and we are good 1/2 times but only winning half of pot. So that's changes math a bit. Forgive me I cant give precise formula right now, but he needs to have ~1 bluff in order to be breakeven call.
Honestly I would always call and have good sleep if BB

Nov. 13, 2019 | 1:15 p.m.

Looks like cooler and turn min x/R pretty weird and not creditable. Firstly I don't think CO is bluffing here ever, therefore we shouldn't be bluffing into stone strong range.
Typical call 3 times situation

Preflop with SB I think we can call, without SB I would be thinking about 4betting only strategy pretty much.

Great to see mouse cursor that helps navigating a lot in ignition.

Flop small size is good, turn you can bet up to slight overbet (this hand I guess checking once in 5 times), and river mandatory give up with FD blockers.
Problem with river shove in my opinion is that we still barrel turn quite frequently ~ 50% or more % of the range, and yet arrive with plenty bluffs on the river. While our value range QQ+ there,99, A3 which isnt a lot of combos ~20 so overbluffing is a concern

Nov. 12, 2019 | 2:39 p.m.

Nice analyses of top HU players. What stakes do you play regulary these days?

Comment | Jeff_ commented on A Very Standard Spot

And your PIO seems old( have less functionality than new), did you update it in recent time or it is just old school theme you using?

Nov. 12, 2019 | 12:22 p.m.

Great video, looks like only few hands were quite misplayed (last one butchered a lot) but still quality thoughts and fresh opinion on certain situations.
On side note: it is mistakes against solver, in real life you might be doing better than solver with some of those funky plays and accumulate more EV (which you mentioned in 2nd hand, that bluffing river looking disaster to you, because people snap off and 1st where people tend to overbluff with x/R line....)

Nov. 12, 2019 | 11:36 a.m.

Too little hands, was 30/20 with high aggression. But it doesn't tell much, maybe he got premium hands few times and etc

Nov. 12, 2019 | 9:01 a.m.

BB can call variety of hands preflop depending on BTN strategy. But I think he lacks strong hands(99/QQ/Q9o 2pairs,AQ). Nevertheless he still connected here with KT,JT, 77 etc type of stuff.

Betting 1/3 or 2/3 is fine, after that this hand is trivial call down because you range rather weak and strong 9x can valuebet river yourself. His line saying that it is well played Qx or binged river, I don't mind folding because usually people tend to bluff with smaller size into weak range with plenty of snap folds

Nov. 11, 2019 | 11:31 a.m.

posters above me have similar profile picture oO, nevertheless solid suggestions

Nov. 11, 2019 | 11:23 a.m.

why you even want solver approved? There is no guarantee that solver approved strategy will make you money (lol, but certainly shouldn't be losing), most money will come from explo strategy.
Anyway if you really dedicated on that topic can buy from variety of online shops for whatever limit you need. (As far as heard have solutions SB/BB only which shouldn't be expensive).

Comment | Jeff_ commented on Solving multi-way pots

monker solver for multi-ways, but not easy or will give you precise results

Nov. 11, 2019 | 9:05 a.m.

21.000 hands since May isn't good sample to analyze. Don't think it will benefit you at any point (except improving analyzing skill/pt4 knowledge).
Few hundred thousands hands starting point.

Comment | Jeff_ commented on A Very Standard Spot

Little bit off reminder, but seems OOP have all AQo(AJo,less importantly KQo) which seems too strong. First 2 definitely prefer high 3 betting % with rake even vs 43-45% range
- Conclusion IP can bet more aggressively

Nov. 11, 2019 | 8:48 a.m.

25entries what a sicko , or you like to close table every 5 minute? lol

Comment | Jeff_ commented on 25NL Check Flop?

depending on pfr size and type of player( would confidently say Yes)

Nov. 10, 2019 | 11:17 a.m.

but if it was bluff, he would lose less :P

Comment | Jeff_ commented on GTO or GTNO? (part 2)

Great stuff. Last hand did you use solvers ranges? Seems bit hard to shove enough vs your turn bet( AJ/KJ/AA) Looks natural for me to call 3times, but I guess lesson learned

Oct. 28, 2019 | 11:14 a.m.

27min 1st table - do you have 3bets vs flop x/R? Not that this hand wants to do it, just curious

32minute- you said that thought will play more checks. If BB wasn't leading I imagine our betting % cuts down to 50%. This is fair assumption because this board not that simple to be playing balanced leading range

Oct. 28, 2019 | 10:17 a.m.

Will be "'fishy'' advice, but move UP. Can't find good enough reason to stay there(nl2) over significant distance.
As far as zoom, let it run for few weeks and decide afterwards

Comment | Jeff_ commented on 25NL Check Flop?

Biggest mistake to open pre for 3x size being 40bb. Good 40bb shouldn't be opening 3x from any position except SB, and good player shouldn't be playing 40bb stack either.
But it is fine - autoreload trouble and etc. can happen.

Postflop can't be bad, but as well can be not highest EV. Maybe calling flop and playing from there, his strategy might be to play any strong top pair this way against your draw hands.

Oct. 26, 2019 | 6:41 a.m.

10-50 minute - you said ''It is GTO check'', my initial reaction was - don't believe it is that simple, I checked PIO and basically any Qhigh+ FD betting for over 90% of the time. AK/AQdd have similiarish EV between check and bet, and A4s 1bb more as a bet.
sizing 75%, but betting pot is slighlty higher EV( nothing crazy)

Video was nice, not the best or top by any means. In my opinion you shouldn't be recording nl200z: 1) You don't have reads on game and population (not your regular game) or show strong/explo plays (nl200 is not an easy limit) 2) There are plenty material / some other coaches produce regulary
3) you seems bored playing it too. Probably it is like playmoney for you

Comment | Jeff_ commented on Did I Make a Mistake?

Nice video and analyses! How do you think we should approach these '' mistakes'', we can always tweak tree/find assumptions... etc... and make them look like a decent play (no EV loss). Yeah maybe we did some suboptimal plays, what we should get out from studying this spot? 1) Under this assumptions my play is correct, in normal circumstances mistake 2) Seems like low EV mistake and vs these guys can be proftiable 3)...

Don't really know how to explain well, but feels like most situations after they happened I can make look like solid play after throwing some assumptions about my/opponent play.
