ItsPokaBruv mentioned what I initially thought. I haven't finished watching video but read though comments and for me Ahigh boards are generally losing around 2% of the pot by range betting BB/BU, and small 1% losing of the pot SB/BU.
My 3betting range from BB is polar and SB of course linear, even though on any Ahigh board I will have EV advantage, PIO prefer choosing 1/2 size and bet less than half amount of time. It is quite interesting discussion thanks for sharing, HU players usually just range bet them as well.

Question about same topic. Which hands would you prefer to flat on BB when starting to have bigger SPR( or deeper)? Don't think you will call K8o,Q8o,A7o,A3o. However it seems stuff like T8o, 54o,65o can be played. Let me know your thoughts, you will expand offsuited connectors/gappers range or strong high cards(A3o,K8o)?

I think any sizing can be good here as long as we play ranges appropriate. If we bet 1/3 we will get protection/value/thin value and keep playing wider ranges, if go 1/2 we will bet not as often and less for protection, if 3/4 it is more polar sizing (yet still mixing some bets with 5x and 3x)

Think I 3bet flop and get it in, even vs regs and won't care about balance, or raise turn because too many draws out there and I think people don't flat T7 or 75s that much to be slowing down.
As played river you hold pretty mediocre bluffcatcher only blocking 99 as value hand. Don't expect people to show off worse for value, so I'm fine with giving it up

Snap shove. He is beating you with AA(1),JJ(3),AJs(1), AJo - pretty ambitious preflop call (6) and 77(3),22(1). That' only 15 combo(and some discounted due preflop and flop/turn play). Nothing to be scared off. What his RFI from CO/MP/UTG?

Generally we aren't going for 3 streets for 2 reasons:
1st and most valid - people not over defending vs triple barrel
2nd This play is purely exploitable and not something which you want to put into your arsenal without info.
Sept. 16, 2019 | 12:52 p.m.
Think you played it well, folding pre is nitty and people do sqz 99+ for value ( I would mix 88 because plays well vs rec).
Villain should be a bit concerned on the turn because your improving on this card(your range Backdoor FDs/Straights, etc), so I don't expect high bluffing frequency.
River is just a gamble at best, your bluffcatcher is good but I'm not able to tell if this spot overbluffed/underbluffed. Happens pretty rarely as well, so I would call around MDF(with slight weight towards folding.
Sept. 16, 2019 | 12:31 p.m.
@2nd It feels like this board is decent for OOP, even though he doesn't have that many 3x in his range 533 connects fairly well, compare than T33 where betting a lot on the flop is more appealing strategy for IP. So woudn't be surprised to see strong checks from IP on that texture(from elite player)

25minute- what is your worst valuebet for that size? (1st table) Do you have bigger size with Tx(? if you bluff Tx big), 8x, and T8?
Always find it difficult to split value bets in 2 sizing categories(in similar spots), with bluffs it looks easier
p.s nice video!

Shoving AAo in his shoes looks like a bad play, and AK bad too. His value range should be quite tight, he made bit silly spr on the river so AAs probably fine to rip it in.
Other than that your line till river is standard, flop call is good if he is indeed 3betting something except QQ+. Turn good. River I'd fold and call 2 pairs+. Seems like on many boards we are in bad shape, and bluff catching isn't +EV line. That opponent however no way of exploiting anyone except himself by playing that tight.

Yes +++ ^
IP overall we doing less 4betting, because realizing equity is easier and we don't want to make pot huge(low spr) where our positional advantage will disappear. As far for picking up bluffs, thats a good question. You can find out yourself what is the best card that blocking his shoving range and not block his folding range (pretty damn hard cause you will always have both blockers) or have decent equity vs 4bet-calling range and have less EV calling original 3bet

I would say turn is quite bad for you. You never have 97s or Q9s, and in general this card connects better with IP range. When that happens checking a lot is good strategy.
This exact combo however can be bluffed on the turn sometimes(?)
As played river bluff is quite ambitious, having Ac is great randomize to always give up and hope for your pot/share, as well when you bluff/valuebet you might just use overbet.

You can stop doing calls like this if cold-headed think about 2 things - his value range? his bluffing range?; while doing it keep in mind his stats and action on all streets.
Now we can tell there are possible bluffs JhX, maybe some Khx. And as far for value - flushes, 66, AJ, A2. Calling or not this hand now comes down to this exact opponent, population tendencies and if you want to go deep your relative hand strength.
Much easier to talk about it after the hand, during the hand you need to be remain focuses and let your emotions fly past (AHHH, HE CAN"T HAVE IT THIS TIME...... I KEEP LOSING,WILL CALL TO UNSTUCK..... MY HAND IS TOO STRONG ARGGGGGHHHH and smashing mouse)

First 13 minutes challenge - going AI by river
30 minute, not sure this board getting raised a ton by BB, probably as you said 20%. I think QQ7o is high up and good enough for IP to be betting range and optimal response isn't wacky x/r 40-50%. That being said 3betting is non EV gaining line and mostly used vs small x/R which suppose to be used by OOP player because he wants to raise quite a bit.
By the way: last hand Iimitless style? video 46minute start
Sept. 11, 2019 | 12:26 p.m.
Flop we likely betting a lot maybey close to range (depending on our 4betting range and his calling range). I think he tend to call more because deep so his range slightly wider.
And as played I think Ace is very good blocker to be bluffing blocking his AA snapcalls, so on your part good play.
His call seems bit wide (maybe at low frequency is okay), but overall with AK ->blocking bluffs with narrow ranges (as some Rio coach - said blocking bluffs in narrow range scenario worse than blocking value, we prefer to have bluffcatcher not blocking many bluffs)

you can check some top players stats via ''statname'' . As far as I recall some huge winners have it around 47-49 and losing by red-line
