Do we really want to be 3bet calling AKo though? We are OOP we would be 3betting to like 8BB and if we go postflop the SPR will be less than 1.5 . If he was an agressive player I could see him shoving some 99,TT that he doesnt want to play postflop with, plus you can be applying pressure vs a LP open that you cover for the bounty. But genarally if you 3bet call I think you will end up vs a really strong range. Shoving there is really profitable anyway and we dont want to get in weird spots in a FT right? Also by shoving and taking it down you now cover 2 players so it shouldnt be that bad. I am not that experienced either with PKOs, just my thoughts.

C-betting too wide when deepstacked is definetely a common mistake at lower stakes. The OOP PFR will almost always take a 1/3 stab on a dry board like a 792 rainbow or a somewhat dissconected board like the one you used T52 2 diamonds etc. I think IP tends to raise less but call more than he should. How does that affect the EV of our hand and what strategy does it benefit? Cbetting wider, tighter? Maybe a different sizing does the job better. Would be a nice video theme.
Anyway, Great stuff and nice explanations.

I mean If you are right and he doesn't fold JJ,99,TT vs a turn bet I should be shoving a lot of rivers. Anyway you are probably right our line makes no sense. Coming back to my original question what flops are best to cbet on? Do you just hope no broadways come up when your 3bet a hand like this?
April 12, 2019 | 2:27 p.m.
Just 3x OOP with 2 people in the pot? That definitely is too small, you would be giving the OR close to 4 to 1 and then the flatter wont really be able to fold. Especially OOP you wanna be sizing up.

Yeah you are right about deeper stacks. But really with JJ I will always minraise get it in for 15BB its not like you will see this spot come up often. I am opening from a 15BB stack UTG, I might get 3bet and get it in easiily. I think its too good of a hand to push 15BB UTG with. Also MP might be 3betting some 99, TT maybe even 88. I generally play tight so from a 15BB stack UTG I might raise fold some good blocker hands like KQo, ATo, depending on the table image I've given myself the past hands and if there aren't many regs on the table.This way I can raise call some AA, KK, QQ, maybe JJ. But anyway it was some massive BIGGER tournament on a Sunday, I think you should definitely be minraising some of these.

My bad seems like the resolution is not the same as in my pics. Anyway yes when I add AQo in villains range that happens. Probably because the total combos of unpaired hands (both for 3bettor and shover) is much higher than paired ones so you should be flipping a lot. I cant find another reason.

Just fold if he was playing tight or shove if he is playing loose/ folding to 3bets a lot. Your stack is too small to flat that, you are putting in 1/8 of your stack with a hand that plays terribly postflop, especially if someone else flats which you should expect. This deep its not worth it, cause hitting a set is rare and there is not enough money to be made. On K, Q, A high flops when he cbets you will have to guess if he has it which is bad. As played you can't call when he cbets into 4 people cause his range should be stronger than usual.

If he has some Qx on his flop x range, which he should 3way, doesn't this play become questionable? Especially 30BB effective where you could be flatting AQ.
Also I don't see them calling the flop bet with underpairs 3way. Do we just want to take the pot right now? And we might get x/r by AK with a spade or something and have to fold right away with our J.

Also at 47:30 A5o defend. Wouldn't it be an okay fold since you are second in chips, this hand plays pretty bad post, there are quite bit of implied odds and he has definetely shown he can put the pressure on? Would you be folding A6o ?
April 7, 2019 | 5:54 a.m.
16:10 The 44 hand. I don't think the equity advantage is this big here BUvsBB as on the QT8 board UTGvsBB. Your range is definetely wider so I would think you have plenty of other hands to bet with on this one. Is just giving up with a hand like this not a thing? Also I think he can call much wider on this board and can lead on some turns with hands that would be instafolds on the QT8. Just making some intuitive assumptions I am not experienced with PIO, this series has helped quite a bit though!

8:25 you open A4o BTN, would you be peeling the turn bet with AQo since he is betting almost always after you x OTF or is it not worth it?
25:00 Defending the BBvsBU, if your hand was 97 of clubs what would you do? I would probably be x/r sinse he will be betting really wide but is there any reason to be x/c with that kind of hand?
Great work anyway, really nice run through the sims.
