Cool thing to hear - '' If someone is solid and he is trying to be balanced(givinp up that QJ bluff), we don't need to worry about bluffcatching him '' Generally I agree with you as bluffcatching is overrated, and can be good only if someone is actually overbluffing situation

29 min K7flush vs rec, check/raise seems bit too strong. X/R small or X/C and donk river totally can be highest EV line.
I can see donking river being pretty high EV because always can put you on AQ/AK one heart combos.

17-50: KK vs rec - IT Does make sense to x/shove but I put myself in his shoes and kind of thinking OOP capable of pull enough bluffs here? Odds seems like always bad to call for IP, need to hope that OOP need to turn some non Ahigh fds into a bluff and those are bit ugly to x/jam

HU content would be cool, never bad idea to steal tables from ''6-maxers''
Think you sim last hand wrong, because gave OOP pretty much exact range as defend vs normal BU 4B. Cold 4B range from BB is linear and we are having far less calls than vs BU. I have ranges how to play vs cold 4B from BB (actually sims from simplepreflop) and can tell that TT is pure shove as well, AJs+ too :)

26min (A52o vs 1/3) - seems like KT with backdoors is overfold there. I cant see QJ/JT being better continue, and we still need to call a bit (likely around 70-75% of our range)
board was A53 in my sim so slight difference :D

Yeah I think turn you making it is too complex with including overbets. I would say you can't even overbet river here from human standpoint. Of course you can as an exploit or if you machine.
For human being it is impossible to make balanced river range including 2 sizes, you value range is sets+ here for 3/4 (if bet normal turn) so you gotta put nutted hands there too and as well in overbet. Which end up in huge issues, when your value range is so narrow and villian uncapped I cant see reason to split for 2 sizes river.
In practise you can just jam river, you repping flush+ from turn so no reason to shy away from max value size and add bluffs accordingly

10 min those 76 is quite garbage river bluff, as far as Ive seen from sims it is blocking his 4 most often folds 66-77 and 75, 65. + of course we prefer to have blockers to his off suited Kx rather than suited low ones.

40m - Call vs 4B with J9. This kinda surprises me, that we call bottom of our 3betting range vs 4B (I admit his size not so big). I however over ranges, and even JTs mixing folds
Though his showdown makes me think that he overbluffing with his 4b
July 12, 2021 | 3:16 p.m.
38min - A9 donk and folding vs big raise. Seems tight to me, with his size we need to defend close to half of our range and I doubt we can fold most of our 9x. Of course we will have T9, 97, 76 which are better hands in terms of equity. But villian can pretty much play K9/Q9 this way and autocheck river. Getting value vs weaker(+draws) and protecting vs 8x which you will be scared to 3B and would likely never donk river.

4 : 00 QQ
Well I think there is counter argument for not jamming turn is that river will come scary and he will fold his low PP. Recs logic on K river, hmmm I have 120$ left and if I fold I can still run it up. But If I call and lose I dont have more money and game seems fun

Curious about your thoughts on having jamming range vs 3B. When we should add those plays in our arsenal and why? (For example SBvsBB 3B situation; BUvsSB(BB).
Great video, and some run good finally. Though I believe if you had goal to crush those games, you would be :)

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.
