That Q9 jam at the end. Feels hard to be bluffing it, while we still have hands which are winning far less often (have less sd value). I understand that it is computer strategy, weird and tough game.
Maybe that's why even when we have something like K9 we are not excited to call, because his main bluffs are 4x/9x. and blocking those not great

Good question, I would say solid tight approach. Either way you have to learn many areas but most important one and which one give massive results - playing against weak players (valubetting, bluffing and isolating (3betting/or re raise limps))

well you can start by checking ~100% this texture. And play as mix x/R x/Call.
I believe turn is super good for you, villain suppose to raise flop with sets sometimes too so you can go geometrically and shove that river.
On the other hand if he is quite tight player, you cant get value by betting big because isolating towards 97 and, 88, TT, 2x too much. With narrow range he doesn't need to make many big herocalls, he will call when have hand and when don't - fold

July 19, 2019 | 11:50 a.m.

but overall very solid in multiways, after leading etc. Obviously no need to mention SRP where he crushes.

Can't tell you how you suppose to play this spot. But will tell how your thought process should be: pre- clear 3bet, too strong hand and we don't want to pay rake

flop - relative good board for you, nevertheless IP still have Equity advantage. Not blocking anything we can go for value raise on the flop. Calling is okay, to keep bluffs in and have one of the strongest bluffcatchers.

turn- generally neutral card for both of our ranges. Hit him slightly more. Overbet is bit unusual line and can be as 4x,flush or Adx; Kdx. We don't know so continue accordingly with slightly overfolding because I imagine people underbluff. Our folding range Qx without diamound(without overcard), PP 66-JJ that's already enough. AQ looks like profitable call and it is not like villain used overbet for huge size

having mouse cursor would help a lot in this type of videos
Good stuff for sure!

July 18, 2019 | 2:47 p.m.

Would just check/call down (it make sense to x/R too; as well as x/C). And 3betting pre might be not good, for that sizing I don't like at all.

Comment | Jeff_ commented on Linecheck NL10

would bluffcatch, seems alright spot to do so. We are losing to 15 combo need less than 7 bluffs. Possible 56,44 busted FD.
Some regs/people are capable of weird plays in sqz spots.

July 18, 2019 | 2:18 p.m.

Quite dynamic board and likely OOP doesn't hit it well. Still he need to bet to deny equity in big 4b pot because IP player just can check behind to realize equity.
I'm not sure why IP bet 15% of the time? 1/3 size or all-in? Maybe something wrong with ranges, technical error.

I didn't download tree, because don't like downloading in internet lol

July 18, 2019 | 2:11 p.m.

raising turn and jamming river(jamming is really questionable with bad blockers) generally isn't good line(on many turns) after facing 1/3 cbet. Another problem that we have too much equity to fold vs turn re-raise with our 1 overcard and 3 straight cards.

July 18, 2019 | 12:27 p.m.

you can bet turn for value if sure villain is cally type of guy and not x/R almost ever.
River just let it go, no sufficient blockers to do anything, yeah he can have 67, 98 type of bluff but whatever because his value region is quite big.

Comment | Jeff_ commented on Mental Fatigue at Zoom

depending how many tables running and stakes playing. In comfort zone( by that I mean not playing higher than normal) if not too much hard decision can be feeling well after 4-5 hours. If difficult session and mentally struggling 1 hour can be as drained as 4
But taking short breaks is super important and likely give you much more value compare playing without breaks.

July 18, 2019 | 12:10 p.m.

he plays interestingly pre( that big 4bet sizing) and postflop leads/3bets.

July 18, 2019 | 12:08 p.m.

agree here, as well be careful and give OOP on the river big sizing and small sizing too. That can affect tree overall.
I just imagine OOP bluffing/valubetting (maybe for 1/3) everything and his range is quite weak on the river so he doesn't defend properly vs your bet and therefore AA not getting value

Gotta adjust ranges always anyway (if have huge rec behind, aggressive 3bet guy). BU seems quite wide, what sizing would you open? I prefer tighter but more big size to not pay rake, or if that's ante game need to loose up everywhere lol

Comment | Jeff_ commented on nl200z SB/BB rec triples

Think it suppose to be mixed, low frequency call. Just I want to end up in situation sometimes where villain bluffing into me and I have snapcall/raise.
Good to be slowplaying vs weak players I assume sometimes, nothing to do with passiveness or scared to go broke on the flop.

Comment | Jeff_ commented on Flopped set, line check

on the flop both merits for raising or calling (having Jc I'm more inclined to call). Any Jc draw he has, he will play for stacks, so blocking it isn't perfect for raising. As well as good to have strong hand to call down.
Turn - call should be best
On the river I belive we suppose to be checking range but vs rec players I'm onboard with donkshoving vs flushes and Qx/ KT. Weak players will check back strong hands pretty often, and rarely fire off triple bluff here

Comment | Jeff_ commented on [NL5Z] river decision?

Would just call it off. MP should have better only A8s,A6s,AA,ATall (total 7hands). As it zoom tables I would definitely check lobby first, vs any 1 tabler I'm calling. Vs regs it is more tricky, still I won't have anything better ever and possible something is overplaying/spazzing.
Won't care if results AA vs TT, either way I would get stacked ^^

Comment | Jeff_ commented on T9s 3-Bet OOP line check

around ~2/3 is catching everything sizing's( fold equity, growing pot, getting value...)
This hand is bit thin to bet turn vs 20/13 guy. If called turn we are snap checking all rivers except T and 9 and looking to x/fold.

July 15, 2019 | 1:12 p.m.

Played fine, as long as you not overcbetting. If you doing it, your strategy will be weak and not gaining EV you want.
This hand however okay example as low frequency cbet and x/call twice brick run out (unblocking variety of bluffs).

July 15, 2019 | 1:10 p.m.

Nice video, tree you built in CREV is massive.
About the flop no check strategy, I'm not familiar with GTO+, maybe looking OOP Flop EV, and IP Flop EV would answer that question(not sure where to find numbers in video). Likely scenario that OOP just crushes IP there that's why it betting so much flop and Ace turn.

To me looks like you need better plan what are you doing on the flop. QQh is not clear value x/raise on mono texture. Who you are playing against? Considering flop sizing, probably reg, but they are different to each other. One guy might be tight another aggressive.
Alright, turn is quite bad for you because AhK or AxKh got there and in general this hand bottom of your range. Vs that size we are just calling, kinda pot odds game vs AA/KK/TT and KT

Comment | Jeff_ commented on AKo 4-Bet Pot OOP

Weird spot because it is 4x open and 11BB 3bet, after you made it 30BB. Do you have 4bet bluffs? and how they look like?

July 13, 2019 | 12:58 p.m.

Yeah flop was bit wild bet. Pretty sure it that was inconsistent mistake.
Turn naturally feels like we want to valuebet only strong hands probably not Q9 anymore (if do, not for over betting size), so I might opted out for 2 sizing's.
River gotta call, but they don't show bluffs as well as hard to have naked FD on that action.

Comment | Jeff_ commented on Bandersnatch

Excellent video, reminded me a bit of criminal detective movies(or series) where you trying to find who is the killer and you have feeling for someone, but twist at end make you O_O (twist was for me- check/fold turn)

Now after watching this video gonna watch that movie ....

I'll check out other ones. Probably watching too much in one day isn't good idea because need to soak, like reading a good book.
