Great video Pastor!

For me the best video format is going through a session hands with a replayer. There isnt "dead time" there.

Very nice video Sam, im a beginner at ICM and this helps a lot.
Why does ICM when being the bigstack shoving, loosen up more when is the pure bubble than when its very late stage and a money jump is a ton of buy ins instead of min cash?

min 9.30 @ 33 hand.
Can you explain why 3s3 is a good 2nd barell and possible 3rd barell? maybe BB will call too tight OTT wich might be a good turn barell but we have to give up river vs such strong range?
I dont think i woulda considered to 2nd barell there,and seems very interesting.
Ty! :)

Great video Elias! very enjoyable to watch this format :)

11:25 @JT hand, you think you should have called JxTh instead,since you unblock more his non hearth hands?

Nov. 24, 2017 | 7:35 p.m.

18:30 @T4s hand.

I see you replyed that you expect 77-QQ to fold like always, so you are targeting Kx hands? You think that size is enough to put him in a hard spot?,or we should go with a bigger overbet?
Or this size means you want him to fold all medium-low hands with a very high freq,and get calls 100% with Kx hands?

12:07 QTo... Having the BDSD is enough to cbet there? are we getting enough folds on that texture?


April 11, 2017 | 12:12 a.m.

So if i understand well,we want to have a wr > 0 when floating a cbet right? In my DB when i filter call cbet with 2overcards,1overcard and no overcard (that includes any type of FD,so taking them out will make things much much worse) i loose at -200bb/100. Am i leaking a lot here? is this right theorically that we should do better than 0?

Thanks for the answer Jonas. Flop i bet because its very dry, i have good equity vs his PP,and i can 3 barell some runouts considering its the hand that most block his Ax.

I will make a simulation but i think we are able to vbet AQ+ on river.

I believe is all standar til here. Here for value 8x+ ,i have 43 combos. But i have like 36 combos of A9os J9os and Q9s. So to balance i need to 3x pot,but it doesnt seems its a good bet size for my 8x.
So i guess we can do 2 bet sizes,one for 8x str8 and half of the air,and another for flush+ and the other half. Im a bit lost how to aproach the situation,how would you solve it?

Someone passed me this hand today ( ) and although i think his play is good,i think we can maximize the EV going ALL IN , applyng this theory. We bluff balanced every hand that has no pair, and we rise the % of times we put him in an ev0 situation. Do you think it was a good practical hand to apply it?

Nov. 16, 2014 | 12:24 a.m.

Very nice video Daniel,i hope you keep with this theorical and new concepts challenguing the standard lines . You also explain very well.

Spectacular video Ben,a lot of very interesting spots!! We are all lucky that the actions and boards developed very interesting. Its cool to see you sure and confidence in trying to solve them.

This completes 65 and the flushes,wich i guess i dont have since i will cbet them normally,so im at the top of my rangue. Possible bluffs of him are JTs T9s ,some diamonds,maybe AJ AT. Value is KQ+ (32 combos),so i need to have him bluffing 13 combos.

What are your thoughts on it?

I think flop and turn are std. River feels uncomfortable because:
-Im capped besides A7
-I really dont have enough bluffs for him to bluffcatch worse
-Its reasonable for him to play his 2x+ this way

Would you play something different? now what?

I'd check flop and prob go for value on thr turn and if called checking back most rivers

Nov. 4, 2014 | 7:41 a.m.

i'd bet turn to avoid this gross spot. (range capped , no boats v thinking aggro villain )

Its a dry flop and i have the Kd so i cbet 1/3 cause im facing 3 players and i think they will react straightfoward.
Turn ($75.00) 8 3 8 Q

So the Q favours me a lot because i have QT-AQ wich he doesnt unless he has a fd or bdfd. So i bet for value agasint 99-JJ but that is only 18 combos,vs 13 combos of 8x 33,2 of AQdd cc. How does him having fd impacts in our play? whould we vbet or check/call?
River ($149.00) 8 3 8 Q 5
Hero checks, BN bets $198.25 and is all in, Hero folds
He doesnt has enough busted draws and he will take this line with AQ too,so i fold.

Nov. 2, 2014 | 10:34 p.m.

Hey Elusive. Thanks for the video,i learned from it.

On min 38,table 1 QTs. I think its a good spot to bluff raise the river,in that turn looks good to check back our AK AA KK (its hard for him to have many hands that continue and will easy fold JJ- Ax,and allowing him to hit his FD or QJs JTs, has a lot of value. What do you think?
Probably not in this river that complets FD,but lets say in a blank.

Min 43: You fold AJo vs 3b CO vs BTN. Against a rangue of 9% (is this value ok?) it has 45% when needed 31%. That means it needs to realiaze 70%+ eq,is that why you fold? do u know arround what number it will realize?


Nov. 1, 2014 | 2:19 a.m.

Well im sure you will have to defend quiet some 9x if you dont want to overfold,and this is the best one.
What would you people do on the flop with KJ,KT,considering we are not making a better hand to fold?

Oct. 31, 2014 | 4:29 p.m.

On the 1st hand, you say you have to defend 45% of your 41 river combos. Now,shouldnt you defend 45% of your bluffcatching+ hands? I think its wrong to count the bluffs we are betting,since we think we had an ok bluff,but of course we cant ever call the all in,so there is no exploiting possible (allways folding right). Is this right?

Here besides having the best blocking combo,i just coudnt see many hand7s he woulda folded, but i think i was pesimist thinking that 77 99 TT didint get to the river,its still seems little that he will fold,and the river also complets T9clubs and 88.

Here its where i usually think AQ > PP below T ,as hes repping JJ+ and my hand blocks that good. Its true tho that hes also repping 8x,so i have problems aproaching the river spot.
Also feel free to add coments to the flop action if neccesary.
Thank you :)

Oct. 27, 2014 | 9:27 p.m.

-Min 3 28: 55, bluffcatching with this hand seems bad considering we block his 65os 75os A5os. And it also means that you are likely overdefending. You will have some Jx Tx backdoors that u call flop.

-I see in your videos that you open fold your weak-medium Axs in MP,i allways assumed these hands make money and my DB confirms it in a medium sample. What are your thoughts in it?

-You also fold K5s BB vs CO wich seems you will be able to recover some of the big blind u have in the pot.

Thanks man.

Post | Magdalenasparty posted in Chatter: Trouble streaming

hey guys I havent watched videos lately bc i was on vacation when i got back I tried to see some and I am having trouble streaming them

none will play

Help pls?

Oct. 27, 2014 | 12:58 p.m.

by checking turn ur burning money either way bc u would never miss a street of value with fish oop in such a draw heavy board and if reg ip is v good as you state he is probably going to bet 100% of rivers when checked to him

Oct. 24, 2014 | 9:35 a.m.

Comment | Magdalenasparty commented on zoom 100

He can have 6 combos of KQ with spade,and that will make the bluffcatch ev+ cause i dont see more than 12 flushes combos.

Sept. 19, 2014 | 8:35 p.m.

@Nigh, him having very likely something like A4s-AJ,blocks our combos from 28 to 20. Nevertheless,we might still have from 3 to 6 bluff combos,and this size makes it enough to his Ax be close to indiferent. Now,do we want to bet this small with 22 33 too? I suppose yes agasint someone good because otherwiese he will correctly fold all his bluffcatchers?
