Does anyone know of any other RIO videos in this format? I really enjoy it.

Good video though I think I prefer 3 tables over 4

I enjoy these videos going hand by hand in the replayer!

Blinds: $0.05/$0.10 (5 Players) BN: $9.18
SB: $11.60
BB: $12.93 (Hero)
UTG: $22.89
CO: $20.60
Preflop ($0.15) Hero is BB with 9 9
2 folds, BN raises to $0.30, SB folds, Hero calls $0.20
Flop ($0.65) 7 6 5
Hero checks, BN bets $0.36, Hero raises to $1.07, BN calls $0.71
This flop hits my range pretty hard and I think I can throw 99 into my x/r range for value and protection. I think V is stabbing a lot here with broadway cardswhich I think he will fold out except for AK and maybe AQ.
Turn ($2.79) 7 6 5 3
Hero checks, BN bets $2.02, Hero calls $2.02
Not sure if I should continue betting here after I've narrowed his range down quite a bit. Perhaps I should be betting to target AK? I feel like if we bet we're only getting called by better and protection isn't as important with 1 card to come. When we check we also leave his range a little wider when he bets as opposed to him calling our bet. Now he can have some bluffs if he chose to float with overcards.
River ($6.83) 7 6 5 3 K
Hero checks, BN bets $4.90, Hero folds
I feel good about this fold. What do you guys think?
Final Pot BN wins $6.46
Rake is $0.37

I'm sure some people are like me who have been interested in using a solver and bought CREV which comes with GTO+

It would be nice if some coaches could incorporate it in some videos.

Raising ATo pre in the BB vs SB open is fine. I also think cbetting AT is fine but probably wouldn't cbet KT-QT. We're getting value from worse Tx, denying equity too his combos of KQ and T9s.

I think calling turn is fine and I don't hate calling the river either on this run out where most of his bluffs missed and we block JT and plus all the T's are different suits so he only has 1 combos of JTs and some V's would throwaway JTo pf but ofc some may call as well.

What is wrong 2/3 sizing on flops if we're not betting range?

Sept. 18, 2018 | 3:09 a.m.

It depends on the player. Readless I'm probably just calling since I'm assuming V's range is polarized so I'll treat my hand as a bluff catcher on dry run outs.

If Villain is an aggro fish then there's time's where GII on flop could be good. If V is tight passive then it's best to be very carefull and possibly consider folding the flop especially if it's a board where a lot of 2p's+ are possible.

Sept. 18, 2018 | 2:14 a.m.

If we are splitting our range on flops between betting and checking instead of cbetting range 1/3 pot should we ever be cbetting a split range 1/3 or always be betting bigger since our range will be more polarized?

Comment | Spades commented on TPTK facing 3rd barrel.

I think the board is so dry and V's line is so strong especially on the flop I think we can make an exploitative fold even with the river decreasing his set combos. He just looks insanely strong here so without reads I would probably call and hate my life when he shows 44 haha. But yeah I guess fold river.

Comment | Spades commented on vs Donk leads in 3BP

Definitely raise bigger pre like 4 - 4.5x being 300bbs deep to give V less implied odds to call you with small pp's and sc's. AP I think I'm raising flop and looking to get the money in vs 99-JJ

34:36 The King hit's Doug's range extremely hard and misses Rast's range so Doug should bet this hand a ton and be unpolarized. You say we should use a small sizing because of this but then recommend a 1/2 - 3/4 pot sizing on turn. Why not 1/3?

I see pros use 1/3 a ton on flops when they're betting a large part of their range, howcome the same concept doesn't apply to turns?

My main question is: Howcome on flop 1/2 to 3/4 sizing is considered large and on turn 1/2 to 3/4 sizing isn't considered large?

Sept. 10, 2018 | 3:36 a.m.

Why is the Kd specifically the best K for Doug's range at 32:50?

Sept. 10, 2018 | 3:28 a.m.

Could you explain a bit?

Sept. 6, 2018 | 11:05 p.m.

Seems a a tad bit spewy. You're hand is a bluffcatcher at best and usually just a fold on river, never a raise.

Sept. 5, 2018 | 7:50 a.m.

This looks like it's a simple pot odds question and I'm pretty sure you're getting 2:1 so you need 33% equity to breakeven and you have 24% at best, 18% likely, or possibly drawing dead.

Not to sound rude bet I would consider moving down stakes until I was able to figure out if a call is +EV in an all in situation on a draw. It's often one of the first things poker players learn.

Double check my math just in case but I'm pretty sure you're getting 2:1

Sept. 5, 2018 | 7:46 a.m.

As frontdoorbackdoor said size bigger on flop since this board connects well with CO's range therefore we want to use a larger sizing to polarize our range and increase our fold equity a bit. I'm not sure but I think vs a x/r we can fold our gutshots + bdfd's. As played you have to call a K, Q, or any spade on turn I think, too much equity.

Sept. 5, 2018 | 7:34 a.m.

I don't think it's +EV to try and squeeze/bluff calling stations

Sept. 5, 2018 | 7:26 a.m.

I like the flop call since we have hardly any nutty hands. Turn we have to raise for value.

Sick spot but I think we have to call since it's possible for some villains to 3b KQo IP. If he has KQo and KQs I think we have to call since we can find hands in his range he's value betting that we dominate.

I think this could be a good spot for a small over bet + barrel off since V should rarely have a 9 here and I have many. V's range seems very capped with his x on the flop. I think I can profitably overbet flop and barrel off here on future streets. What do you guys think? I think a downside of my hand is we're blocking QQ and JJ which can find folds so I think maybe a hand like 87s bdfd/sd would be a better candidate.

Comment | Spades commented on River call or fold?

Bone dry run out + passive player pool + donk jam river = fold

Aug. 23, 2018 | 3:39 a.m.

At 10:10 you cbet 753cc flop in a 3b pot with AK for a little over half pot. I was expecting a smaller sizing like 1/3 on this board. Could you explain the larger cbet sizing?

Aug. 20, 2018 | 9:21 a.m.

Comment | Spades commented on [NL10z] QQ MP vs UTG

River line feels suspicious to me. KK+ should be wanting to GII on the turn. AKdd should be wanting to GII on turn as well. Why would V jam when 88 makes a straight and the flush comes in.
