Excellent points, the hand makes much more sense to me now!
And thanks Dan A for posting interesting hand like this it brings out a lot of interesting things to think about
So I also believe the raise-call flop is the really dicy/close/weird part of this hand here. We have to keep in mind that it can be a frequency play and linus just rolled high here

Well common strategy's are kinda going out of the window in these dynamics right. I mean if someone only opens AA, are you going to play your 3bet range of 12% ? of course not. So them opening 8% simply limits our ability to 3bet them much, and that's fine since they are not after the blinds much at all
So id be going with a 5ish % range only really, they wake up like half the time with JJ+,AK that's how tight 8% is
And also they might be limping KK+ often to trap so their range is actually weaker. And if they play badly postflop , too fit or fold for example it get's more interesting 3betting them wider exploitably
Could be they are still opening wider tho, esp button as that play is quite common even among live players
These are also things to take into consideration

I did a DB filter hero stack between 90 and 110 and hero stack between 150 and 250. I notice only 5% of my volume was hero stack 150-250 but my winrate was more than double the other stacksize
Can be a lot of variance in this of course
Several things to consider are that when you increase the stacksizes the potential error's people make are more costly given that NLHE is a compounding game. It will be for more bb's , increasing the overal bb/100
I think the difference can be more than 1/2bb depending on the line up. Lot's more river spots for more bb's at play that will make an impact

One reason why you may have this redline is that you are folding to 3bet's at 75%, that's way too much especially since you already open a strong range
This is a big impact to the redline , you lose all the money you invested with no showdown by folding this much to 3bets
Overall it can be fine to have a losing redline, it's all about the green line
But the folding to 3bets should be looked into is my advice
Another thing will be defending your SB and BB which looking at your VPIP are you probably not doing well enough. When you overfold your blinds the redline go's down, that's another thing to look into

SB vs BB
Turn delayed cbet 1/3 size
I'm not too sure what the best line is in these type of spots.
Could you elaborate a little about this situation ?
Like we are not getting worse to fold
We do gain from folding out equity, hands like T7,T6,97,96,K3-K8 ?
We get called by worse hands like 35, but its hard to get to showdown vs those, they will bluff river often when we check and it may be hard calling down A high.
Are we ever bluffing some rivers ? seems like there are better combo's
So its a equity denial play with potentially getting to showdown in someway, villain could opt to not bluff missed draws on river. Or we chop vs some A high's or K high's check down I guess
Small spot but occurring so often that I think these are quite important to get the understanding of the dynamic's right
Thank's great video as always!

Depending where you live, follow the normal steps, file a complaint with the regulator and paperwork like this. Or tell stars that you are planning on doing this if they don't respond within 48 hours. Things like this, paperwork zzz, glgl

You can approach it mathematically
Like you invest 10$ and you get 2 caller the pot is 30$ you only need to win the pot on the flop 1/3th of the time to break even. AK flop's a pair+ around 30% of the time.
And when you do you can extract a lot of value vs these players wider ranges. So you don't even have to cbet flops. I'm not saying you should not cbet unmade hands vs these guys, because there are ofc still situations to do so.
Sure sometimes they catch a weird 2 pair hands, but the times they put in a ton of money with their TPWK and 2cnd pair and weak stuff compensates for that
OOP can be a lit tougher and this is where you want to strengthen your range a little bit more than IP where you can get away with playing a little wider

Their range may be more defined than you think. If it go's mw often you just need to win the pot less often postflop as well. It's preferable to get it HU so you can increase your sizing but also make that range more tight. Basically in the games you describe you can just nit up a little bit and print money from your good hands

Ah I see then I misunderstood
So you create a lot of expectation about your strategic performance , don't achieve that level and get frustrated by that ?
Then you may expect too much from yourself, if you expect to not make any mistakes that's being unrealistic. Even the great's of the game make mistakes from time to time. Mistakes are part of the game and part of life. You can switch your perspective around and pat yourself on the back for noticing the mistake and seeing that opportunity to further improve your strategy. How many mistakes are you making and are not even aware of right now ? You don't get frustrated by those , then why do at the ones that float to the surface ?
My advice would be to not have any expectation, It's completely useless. Nobody can see into the future.
Instead of expectation have intentions , to play your best you know how. That's all there is you have control over. A good warm up is a good step towards that, so keep doing it

You are valuing the monetary result of the session , something you don't have control over, Instead of the strategic input of the session, the thing you do have control over
Feeling good or bad about short term monetary loss or gain is a waste of time. Feeling good or bad about good or bad playing efforts is a waste of time also. Instead do what needs to be done and waste no time doing it

Having no club makes this a decent bluffcatcher not blocking any potential bluffs
GTO land probably call , Explo Land probably depends on playerpool tendency's
Not a great run out with 34 and 78 completing, can be quite a close spot vs rec that's capable of running bluffs

65 hands is really nothing, It will depends on the population whether or not the regs are capable of barreling this down. Think it's usually a call down but if you have strong confidence the average reg is not bluffing you can fold river
