Thats how great players suppose to play, being agressive but overbluff only good situations(lines). People only dont know how to deal with straight up agression in microstakes/lowstakes.
Stef for sure one of greatest players in the world.

Fair enough, I was totally missing out onto looking from their POV. While in my mind it is quite simple - playing -EV games bad idea in general (even for study reasons). So whever I end up in those games I sometimes beat myself up for playing. But....
not playing it for entartaiment, waiting weak players to jump in.

43min - That hand does feel quite weird. Firstly don't think that hero can creditable rep sets because they aren't calling flop bet (well AA yes), and seconly only KQ straights as 98 not peel flop either.
Kinda thought hero will block bet turn for value/merge vs rec. Which make some sense to me, but might be wrong.
However even if BU is top reg he likely close to never calling jam (if have no straights as played or flop slowplays), just because super hard to find bluffs in CO shoes unless he is doing what he is doing in the video :) Yeah can find K9/Q9 at fully % 87, 97, Q7 etc but I doubt it is percieved to be massively overbluffed spot to make calldowns. After watching video I am bit aware it can go otherwise

That was a nice quote mash-up video :) Let's start with poker and indeed ego is quite big there. I found out that even top players have issues with that, battling with each other in - EV games and trying to win pretty hard in some situations.
But how to refrain from that? If I knew solution, I would be quite happy. Of course can not expect ''silver bullet'' or ''magic pill'', but any thoughts are welcome.
It is cool to go with ''why approach''. By that I mean asking yourself ''why?'' until you go futher and futher. Why I am angry? Why I want to win from him? Why I want my money back? .....
Anyway other ways are cool to go as well

Firstly don't think about this spot, there is basically +0.00001bb you can be improving here by all means
Secondly focus your energy on more common situations(standard spots) and get better at them than your competition
Being quite deep make sense to put some 5bets non-ai, but even our friend is solver will have hard time answering it.

Wont show as much love as previous/other videos. Structure of course is good and material(at some point) but hand choice looks off. It is entertaining but not so practical.
Bluffcatch (in nutshell) overrated unless you know your opponent is overbluffing.

Can't call Berri best HU player yet. There are enough of great and ''excellent'' players they can take hell out from him. For example - Buttonclicker, Filismies, Limitless and Stefan. And of course lets not forget Doug, Hellmuth and King himself (Negreanu).

37minute(1st table) 643r 2fd This board can have donk bets by OOP, and on the turn I am not confident that we want to raise a lot :1)his turn size might be only size he is using (would be reasonable strategy likely) 2) which bluffs IP will pull on the turn.
Actually not suprised if he folded 2 pairs(would lay down too), those type of spots where population basically never bluffing

88x is fine to cbet a lot, however everything below(77x) is preferred checking and everythong above strongly prefer betting.
In gto world your hand is a call and even blocking 8s4s. In pratice no clue, can ask yourself in game - is this spot overbluffed by population? If you dont know just make theory call

Usually I try with 2 sizes on the turn OOP and on the river OOP. However whenver one sizing is preferred I will simplify to 1 since balancing two sizings is hard.
For example on this runout you actually can choose either block size or decent size. Benefit from block size - you can valuebet more Ax and you putting pressure on villian and he need to pure call Jx ( I think), need to mix some KQ and not sure what about QQ (I belive mix as well)
While if you bet big, he can safely mostly fold everything except Ax and not lose much.
On the other hand if you block turn, you can block river as well. Thats pretty sick line as a bluff as population just shrug there and fold everything except Ace.

100bb deep I agree and as solution says we tend to play ~55% Folds ~22% 4B and ~22% Calls (numbers are rough, depends on 3 bet sizings, we got 7.5 vs 2.5bb 8.5 vs 2.5bb and 9 vs 2.5bb 500z solutions around)
But when we 130bb deep it is iffy to 4bet that much, why?In my opinion there are 2 factors -1) we have far less fold equity(unless making huge, and making huge will isolate too heavily) 2)iffy to be 4betting/calling off even KK here

Main problem with block bet on the river I think that it basically not really get called by population(either jam or fold, if you have AAc here would you call block river? KJdd?). I think it is great line as a bluff, but what hero will bluff for block AcQ? TTc? They do excellent job by jamming and blocking as a bluff is interesting

Pre - Why mostly 4betting pre?
Flop - For 133bb deep we can raise a lot more than 100bb deep where we x/R less and overall villain more happy to stackoff QQ+ on safe runouts, while 130bb deep overpairs are quite intimidated by most runouts.
River - Block seems fine from explo POV; When 2 high cards are flush cards he really struggles to have many flushes there (Hands which shouldnt 3B much because they are marginal in first place but deep better : QT,T9,98,87 A4-A2 A8-A7)
QQo not in range too. Yet I will repeat myself - when it is hard to find bluffs herocalling tend to be money burning (+ his size is slight overbet)

11minute KQ hand what about putting AQ in that size as well. Especially if people are that picky to sizings tells (which I doubt is true). Guess you get raised maybe 10-15% of time which is fine outcome
