One spot I have been quite curious about/found difficult is when BU opens, and SB 3bets, or CO opens and BU or SB 3b and you are in BB. I am having a hard time finding good ranges here, what is the weakest hand you would play in those spots?

Loved the video!

J3 3 handed is an easy check call 3 handed but j9 is an easy shove on k94?

It works better at 50/100 because of rake.

you know, this video was, you know, a little too vague, you know.

love the live vids, you seemed very loose calling opens preflop in the PLO games, (you seemed to be playing roughly 50/35), was this a function of a fish being at the table?

this would be more interesting for PLO

Just readjust your mental math, if you are playing .5/1 just think "I need to call .50 to make the total pot 1.9", there are still profitable limp spots, but perhaps slightly fewer.

Love this series!!! Try to make a live PLO video next if at all possible. :D

I would likewise enjoy watching a live 10/20+ PLO video

Great series Phil!

One of my favorite videos yet! Absolutely love the live PLO action :) Thanks so much Phil!!!

Great Vid Phil! I really love when you make live high stakes videos, it is fascinating to hear your thought process real time. The forced time constraint of the hand makes you distill your thoughts to the essential important reasons to make a certain decision.

hey Phil, I was hoping you could go into a bit more reasoning on our KQT4 call on the T937 board, its a spot where I seem to hemorrhage money. It seems like he plays fairly perfectly on the river, and the cards that are perceived to be good for you (broadways) are actually good for you.

Great Video again :) Excited to see the next part.

Great Vid Phil!

Could you go through what the stats you use on your HUD are when you have the time please. Your PLO videos are improving constantly, well done :)

Another great video Phil! I really hope you continue to make more PLO videos. The quality of the videos is amazing, but there seems to be little PLO content. It really seams like you get better and better at making vids, GJ :D

I have a 30" monitor so maybe thats why for me it looked great, although I had to fullscreen it.
I personally prefer the 9table, because sometimes as an inexperienced video maker leo rambles a bit, so its nice to have other things to look at while hes talking.

Although you didn't encounter too many interesting spots, good video!

I enjoyed this format and wouldn't mind seeing it once a month interspersed with other videos like you suggested.

I think the right play here depends on your image. If he puts you on an 8 here on the turn, I think this is an easy call. It is just too likely a LAG will think after betting the turn light into a lot of people, hmmm i cant bluff the river i should check, then after you bet think hmmmm he probably raises T8 on turn so he will almost always have an 8 with some rare 22s and TTs in there as well. This makes the odds of you getting bluffed too likely added with how few combos beat you its a easy call.

Liqqaa, I do think there is a place for highly exploitive playstyles for videos even when they are spewy. I wish we got to hear deep thought processes or well reasoned arguments for the plays.

Nice video

When discussing the AsKQ6s hand where you call an UTG raise, you talk about the nut suit being the fulcrum point in your decision about whether to peal or fold. Similarly, you use the same logic on the AKsQTs hand when talking about calling a 4bet. How much value does the nut suit have in these circumstances? I think its pretty trivial in both but have no math to back it up. In the first example, i would use postflop tendencies to form my decision of calling or folding, and in the 4betting example I would use his range.

you seemed a bit overwhelmed and out of your comfort zone. Perhaps a different format would suit you better.

Dec. 23, 2012 | 4:24 p.m.

thanks for your reply!!! Beautiful site :)

Also it would be great if one could find all the training videos posted by someone by going to their profile, as well as a way to sort the videos by gametype and stakes.

Comment | JohanB commented on Dealing with emotions
It is hard to tell what is the source of the problems without knowing you better. The most likely possibilities are an unhealthy lifestyle and/or poor discipline//willpower from my experience.

Hope you can turn it around,

". I'm not a fish who doesn't know how to fold top pair, I know what is and isn't correct, I just have trouble dealing with my emotions, when I lose I can't play well and my decision making is clouded and I make poor decisions."

This attitude will greatly stunt your development as a poker player, even the best players in the world frequently dont know what is and isn't correct etc etc.

Comment | JohanB commented on 50/100 River 3b Bluff
I dont think I like it. You are fairly polarized on the river, so he could call a lot if he thinks you bluff too often.

Dec. 20, 2012 | 5:28 p.m.

Great Video!!! Maybe to make up for the lulls in action at times, add a couple more tables, and just skip over the uninteresting hands so that there will be more complex spots per video.
