Thank you Sam, great to see how a champ like you attacks these fields that we alle face so often. I do have a question about the last hand where you r/c 26.5 bb w QJs btn vs sb jam (sb is jamming 50bb eff. vs. bb). I´m always a bit lost in these spots. Did you have any knowledge about your opponent? Obviously, vs aggressive regs you kind of do have the equity to call off but vs most recs or tight opponents it could end up quite a disaster as their range just always has you crushed there. Generally speaking I tend to believe the SM population is not jamming as wide as they could here (>20bb), a lot of regs actually adapt their tightness in these fields "to avoid variance" as you pointed out earlier. Ofc it feels a bit dirty leaving yourself exploitable and folding.. Seems like you are proposing not worrying about the general tightness and just going with your game (preflop), is that right?

Great video as always! I found the lack of solverwork actually beneficial as you obviously have done a lot of your homework in many spots already and solver outputs often just help you to verify what you said beforehand. Even without „proof“ or the possibility of small inaccuracies you could bring across a lot of different concepts/ reasonings for gto strategies, which imo is far more educational from a video than looking at a solver output that anyone could produce himself.

Very impressive stuff! Even to a non heads up player, you offer great insight on how strategies/ equilibrium works

Why would people want shorter videos? They are paying for it. If they want to they could just take a break after 30 min. That being said, Great video. More pls :p

Yes the FT would be super boring to review. Was basically just a lot of folding and one guy running away with it once he got hold of some chips. Excited for your HH review though! Lets go, 7 parts

Du bringst mal n bisschen frische Luft hier in die Bude. Das ganze Gerede von gto neigt ja manchmal dazu in schwarz/weiß denken rüberzurutschen. Gut wenn einem ab und zu mal jmd. klar macht dass der EV an jeder Ecke warten kann und der Autopilot dich nur vom denken abhält.

Wie dem auch sei - bitte mehr davon.

Hi Chris! Thanks for all the great videos!

I have a question considering the "not wanting to reopen the betting for <1/2 pot" for the in position Player on the river thing. Don't know if it was this video but i remeber you refering to it as Common knowledge in one of your videos, thats why i'm asking. Could you go in detail and explain the reasoning? I see other theorectical sound players like Sauce and Krab still using smaller sizing in certain river spots. Is it just an exploitative move and vs a gto opponent it's not "worth" adding ev to their strategy by giving them an extra branch to the Game tree ? Thanks

Thank you Sam, always enjoy your videos.
At 50:54 the AJ Hand i think you are giving him way to wide a range to get it in. You actually need 27% so thats where the confusion comes from i think
