thought that too at first, but i think 30 seconds is just right, because often times there is a key concept, that takes something like 1-3 sentences to explain and i would like to hear that again to take note. 15 seconds may be too short, but you could obviously argue that i could just press the button twice, which makes 15 seconds probably the better option.

Hey, really enjoyed your video, but have one idea for improvement:
Please include a short VISUAL summarization at the end. For example some bullet points with the key concepts your trying to get to your audience.
Im making notes, while im watching, but its good to have a reassurance at the end, that i got the point of the lesson right.

you dont have TopSet here. you have TopPair weak kicker and a BDFD. Definitly checkback flop. Probably also checkback turn, as that card does not improve your hand at all, but it could very well improve villains range.

so 3betting flop with hands like this might be important for preventing opponents from check-raising with reckless abandon and no consequences.
Villain is most likely not aware of it and not trying to exploit us. Do you think it is still important to do that against unaware opponents? Not to be unexploitable, but to give him the impression that we always seem to have the right hand in the right circumstance?

Thank you very much for your in-depth reply. very insightfull for me.
"Flop: Why you want to keep em in the hand, fold-equity is never bad."
Because if i raise i most likely fold out all the lower Twopairs and especially flushdraws and only keeping ATxx, KKxx, QQxx and JJxx in the hand. Hands against im mostly behind, maybe close to flipping against.
The river I usually dont check, the risk you lose value by other players checkin behind straights or trips is pretty high.
i cant count the times this happened and wanted to die. your so right!
As a default I lead out pot for max value because you are folding lots of KQxx ott and that makes your betting/raising range otr disguised and pretty polarized, polarized bets need to be big otr.
I think that makes a lot of sense, especially from a gto perspective.

im guilty of this line too, but i dont think we should be stabbing this flop against your described opponent, because he's just too likely too continue to make it profitable. But when you do, id suggest to bet smaller and then barrel at least the turn.
If i learned one thing, its that its not a good idea to put money in with hands that have SOME, but not by any means good showdownvalue like yours and then give it up so easily on later streets. If you show weakness like you did, he will try to get you off your hand. I always hate myself, when i take those lines :D

Why would this be a surprise? You basically have 4 outs, not even clean ones on this flop and UTG is smashing this board with his 4betting range. Obv close to only AAxx, but depending on how aggressive your 3betting the occasional AKKx and AKJTds, AQJTds.

MP (Openraiser): 46/28, was minraising every hand, he decided to open
CO: 84/40 over small sample
EP: 34/12 (dont have any reads)
Option to c/r here. Although i dont think CO has ATxx all that often here, i dont think i should raise here. Wanna keep them all in the hand.
Should i just donkbet here? If so, how large?
March 21, 2019 | 2:55 p.m.
I think it depends highly on how much fold Equity you think you have and therefore how aggressive he is barreling the turn. I also like c/r against aggressive opponents here, because you realize some more Equity on the river, when you hit some weak twopair you would need to fold to another barrel, right? Small point, but imo still remains.
Otherwise against unknowns and tighter/passive players im All for Just calling the turn.

"This board likely gets checked through a lot as well, so I think you
can start making them feel indifferent and pressured right away by
betting something like 1/3 pot. It's very possible there are multiple
sizings with a lead, but the board is pretty locked down and larger
sizings I think make it easier on all of them within this dynamic."
i assume your talking about flop action up until that point? i agree with sizing down on a locked down board, but do you recognize this flop as locked down? I dont see it as that.
The texture and your blockers make me think UTG's turn calling range is filled with a lot of FD's/combo draws. He likely doesn't have that many two pair+ combos at all, so the river should hit his turn calling range pretty well. He also has to worry about the BTN who called the turn as well, so I believe players in UTG's spot tend to play more straight forward and unbalanced in that spot.
completely agree on this part. makes me think i should not call here. totally different story, if we are headsup OTR.
