Hey Wei
1:30 with 88 why would you fold this vs a reg? Aren't 77-99 and some suited broadways a pretty standard cold call range here?
16;00 A6 should we be calling all our Ax on the river?
28:40 KJ how light should we call river here?
42:00 68o how wide should we be calling the river?
52:00 ATs why fold? I know he made it really big but you are like 140bb deep and your hand is easy to play.
nice video, thanks

Hey Paul
4:05 A2 how thin would you value bet river for pot size? AA+?
11:05 J8 do you think we need to call this hand ott since it was 4way otf, he's a fish and he just mashes the pot button ott going almost all in? That line just almost always seems to be value
13:00 QQ how wide should we call a check jam ott here?
18:25 QJs if playing 3bet or fold vs mp/utg what frequency is ok to 3bet our suited broadways? What about 88/99?

May 12, 2017 | 7:35 a.m.

At 17:30 I wasn't asking about semibluffing hands, just wanted to know the worst hand you would value bet otf. And if you think we should ever check back QQ+ here.

May 6, 2017 | 1:18 p.m.

15:00 JJ would you call flop with a diamond then? Seems like most players 4betting ranges just have alot of Ax and he bets big. Can't we just call Ax+ and good draws otf?
17:30 KQ worst hand you would value bet otf? Do you think we should be checking QQ+ at some frequency?
26:15 JJ if btn is 3betting quite tight vs utg would you still cold 4bet TT? And versus the 5bet what's reasonable to shove/call? Assuming we have no reads on him.

May 2, 2017 | 11:12 a.m.

13:30 TT how wide are you calling river? You said you're willing to check this board but would 1/3 pot otf at a high frequency be okay too?
23:40 56s just call 8x+ otr?
28:05 AQ would an overbet be fine too ott?

May 1, 2017 | 10:46 a.m.

Hey Ben
9:00 J4s How wide should villain call turn?
21:20 99 so villain should just barrel off with JJ here?
26:00 AK whats a reasonable shoving range here, QQ+ and AK? I know it would depend on your opponent but just like as a standard. Also how often do you think is reasonable to slowplay here?

@showing hand being less likely to bluff - so you still call some bluffcatchers? Don't we need to beat part of his value range to call if he is underbluffing?

Hey Tyler, liked the video. I don't think there need to be any "interesting" spots for a good video. I'd rather see a ton of basic spots that I see almost everyday. More useful I think. Also I thought how you talk about a lot of different reads was pretty useful.

1.How does your 3bet range change when you are playing with about a 50bb stack?

2.When you talked about various factors like guys who show their hand being less likely to bluff, and the guy who got coolered being more likely to call this time because he might be a bit tilted. How big an adjustment are you making? Like if you're normally bluffing what you think is GTO, or calling 1-Alpha how much would you adjust that range?

10:35 25s say he bet normal like 3/4 pot ott, and bet a brick river like 6h. Do you just snap call all your Ax and fold anything worse?

thanks :)

12:50 how does a hand like QJ with a spade have enough equity to call flop?
32:50 Just to clarify you still call 55 and 66 ott?
35:55 is it better to have a heart or not with our Tx?
sorry for the paragraphs of questions :D

April 25, 2017 | 6:56 a.m.

Hey Mark
12:50 KQ how wide should zaza call flop if you cbet like 2/3? How wide should he be calling if you delay cbet?
32:50 AK how wide would you call turn? Whats our bluffing range look like otr?
35:55 K9 how wide are you calling river?
41:00 KQ if you think you're up aginst someone who doesn't bluff enough here, like a nit, or passive fish. Would you just call all your Ax?
46:00 A6 whats a reasonable range to call down with here?

Watch all of Cameron Couch's videos. And then watch them again. When I first joined RIO i watched all his videos at least 3 times

April 22, 2017 | 7:21 a.m.

When you were moving up stakes what was your bankroll management like/what do you think is reasonable?

April 20, 2017 | 11:07 a.m.

Assuming you're starting out at like nl10-200 online I'd go and watch all of Cameron Couch's videos. He's a nit but what he does works

April 20, 2017 | 10:57 a.m.

5:30 J9 you talk about how you would start 4betting a lot, what do we do when opponent is also 5bet jamming way too much? Just 4bet call JJ+ and AK always?
15:55 how wide does villain need to be squeezing for us to 4bet call TT here? I assume we cant be 4bet folding here with TT?
17:30 same hand with TT, if he checked back turn then how wide can we shove riv for value?
25:00 J4 how wide should villain be calling turn overbet here?

April 20, 2017 | 10:51 a.m.

The KK hand at min3 how tight would you be calling a Jam on the turn against an unknown fish then? Would you still call AA?

April 18, 2017 | 5:44 p.m.

Hey Juan
15:30 TT how wide are you calling otr here? How much 9x should we call?

April 17, 2017 | 11:12 a.m.

Hey Stelios
27:25 KQs why go with 1/2 pot bet on the turn as opposed to 2/3-80%?
31:00 K9 I dont see how you could fold this since you can still beat some of his value range like T9 and could even see AA with a diamond.
35' 9T how light are you calling river if villain bets?

April 16, 2017 | 11:48 a.m.

5:00 89s how much would you be checking AQ+ otf? Is Checking like 60% of the time reasonable?
10:30 68s how thin can we value bet river here? QJ+?
19:45 88 how light should we call river here? Would this be a call since it is near top of range?
27:00 AQ are you calling like 4x or better otr?
thanks, good video

April 16, 2017 | 7:57 a.m.

Hey Ben
21:00 AT why is having the Ten of diamonds good? Aren't you blocking some T8,JT types that would x/r with the bdf against your small bet?
23:40 AK isn't your sizing on the turn going to leave an awkward spr otr? Or does it not matter that you'll be shoving like 35% pot?
34:25 9T you say he should be betting this board almost every time, so like 1/3 pot size?

April 15, 2017 | 7:15 a.m.

On Stars starting at what stake do you think it is fine to open A2s-A8s utg? Is it probably still fine to open them in MP? With a few big fish at the table would you still open A2s-A8s utg?

30:35 87 what would your call down range be here?

April 12, 2017 | 9:29 a.m.

Hey Mark
:50 A3s are you calling flop with no bdf?
1:30 33 would you TB KJ here? What sizing otr?
26:40 JJ Against people who 3bet way too much there but aren't 5bet jamming light would you still just always call? Or would you 4bet fold if you think they only shove value despite having a really wide 3bet range?
37:00 you fold QTs sb vs co?
Also did you say you would call AQ ott here?

April 9, 2017 | 9:15 a.m.

Hey Era7er
30:30 75s is it ok to bet 1/3 on the flop here high frequency? I think button should have a lot more Ax than us here so wouldn't a more polarized strategy be better?

April 5, 2017 | 12:13 p.m.

16:00 T8s vs a 1/2 pot bet otf what should villain's flop calling range look like? Specifically should he still be calling 66-88?

April 3, 2017 | 8:28 a.m.

Hey Teunuss
22:20 If you delay cbet the turn should he be defending 22-55 with a club?
29:00 89s Would you call like KT-KJ without a diamond ott here? And I assume any pair with a flush draw would be a really easy call?
32:45 57s now that you know he is barreling total air hands here how light should we be calling turn? Any 3x or better?

April 2, 2017 | 4:18 a.m.

Haha thanks! Yeah I was just running really really badly :)

March 29, 2017 | 2:25 p.m.

Last question, I swear.
At about 17:40 you stab T7 with no equity. Do you think at small/micro stakes it's fine to just stab whenever someone (non regular) checks back?
Also, great video btw

March 29, 2017 | 10:57 a.m.

Hey Tyler
At the beginning of the vid you said you wouldnt be calling at all IP and would just 3bet your whole range? I guess it has something to do with the rake but I dont really understand why? Would you never be calling your suited broadways vs utg-co?
1:22 what is the 4 dollar cap you mention?
2:40 you fold 33 from utg, is this still a fold when we have 2-3 fish at the table? With 1 fish in the bb.
In Sauce's vid he was really tight on the btn, do you agree that we should be folding stuff like J9o,Q8o? At lower stakes it just seems like ppl fold the bb a lot more than they should.
7:10 whats the weakest suited ace you open in utg in these games? With a fish in the bb are you still opening all of them? Or if the players behind you are all realtively passive?

March 29, 2017 | 10:34 a.m.

Hi Ben, how much does your BB defense range/IP flat range change at different limits? i.e how much would your range for 200z be when compared to 500z?

Comment | Taiga commented on Triple-Barrel Bluff

5:30 78 what do you think is a reasonable range for him call down with? What hands would be best to bluff catch here?
29:30 A5 do you think villain should be bluff catching QJ here since other than our 2 pair combos it is pretty much the top of our range?
37:00 QJ again how light do you think is reasonable to be calling on the river?

March 15, 2017 | 12:22 p.m.

Hey Mark
2:10 JJ if you know villain is bluffing hands like this what adjustment would you make? Would you just call any pair on the turn and river since he seems to be massively overbluffing?
2:25 88 how wide would you call turn here? J9+?
20:35 QJ say we call turn with 55 or something, and he bets again on a 4h river for like 3/4 pot. How wide should we be bluff catching river? I feel these spots are kind of hard to know how much to call.
30:00 JJ if he did just barrel off with 78 instead of checking turn how light do you think we should be calling river? And if the guy was a nit then how much tighter do you think we should be calling otr?
