Wow! i am really into this concept of having "miracle mornings." Its something ive been taking notes for sometime now and u organized it amazingly. Its crazy how powerful it is to build up positive intended actions one after the other.
The counter side of going super deep into this (atlest in my case), is that ive become really ritual dependant and i feel out of control whenever i cannot follow what i intended (because of external events or simply some internal crisis)..
Anyway, awesome video Bradley!!

Great video and tips Iain!!!
Min 9 AKs: should we have a raising range in this spot? I dont know if u are flatting 33,55,A3s,A5s here. Plus with your player description i found it hard for him to continue with a wide range.
Min 19 K9: turn i agree with how u describe his continuing range, but i think raise size is too small considering how we wont fold most of this holdings and building a larger pot plays a big role here. Fun players tend to go mental on this boards, they just dont buy it.
Min 28 T9s: folded pretty fast to 3b 175bb deep vs a small/normal size. Thoughts?

QQ hand: i agree with the fact that they might slowplay KK+ preflop (but i expect this to happen at a smaller freq) i also agree that villain will defend 99 vs 4b.
But postflop i expect villain to almost always shove turn KK+,99 after the line taken on the flop, this leaves his range more capped but not drawing dead, against this, i might wanna protect/thin valuebet (u make a good point about spades no being a problem, but given the preflop scenario villain might include hands like 98s,76s,A5s. And value vs JJ obv). If turn was a complete blank i much rather check back, cause i wouldn mind that much giving a freecard + ill expect from time to time a few traps.
Im just adding how unfrequent preflop and postflop this play will be with KK+,99
thanks for replying :)

Nice Video Iain!
min 26 - 88: i dont really like hero betsizing on this Turn. I think betting small to induce/give good price is gonna work better. Even checking back is better than bombing vs a guy that insta CR and insta called the 3b flop.
min 33 - QQ: i think it would be pretty unlikely that villain will take this line preflop and postflop with AA,KK,99. I like hero´s shove, i think its simple and good. Dont expect much value to be had (expect much more CF than traps from villain), but they are some uncomfortable Rivers that we might want to avoid. Basically some protection/value against oddly played JJ,98s,88,76s,A5s,AXs bdfd.

4bet pre, the more money put pre here the better. Ahead of his overall SQZ range and u dont want to give price to other players to join. also A and K will be flopped often making your hans more vulnerable. As played bet flop. As played call river.

I think you played it ok. Its hard to find bluffs in villain range in this river and most of his 2pairs & under, wants to go to SD.

Nice video Julian! Hope to see more like this ones with some NL50 aswell.. It would also be nice to hear what do u think about the stake and what approach or adaptations u will be considering doing for playing this limit.
min 7:30 - 77: i agree with your reasoning but price is too good, i might fold my worst pairs but i feel 77 should be defended..
min 9:20 66: on the turn u say that maybe we are raising a hand like 65s (for thin value and as a bluff) can u explain a bit more the though process, how we would play river if called?
I noticed u played tight preflop, is this an overall strategy or just adaptation to the higher rake?
Aug. 4, 2017 | 1:28 p.m.
Nice video serge, good idea playing lower limits.. i just thing u need a couple more session to get a better sense of how this pool is playing and the possible adaptations to make..
min 10 A6s: vs rec isnt a bit optimistic this line? we block clubs, AK,AQ and i think turn and river arent the best for barreling vs unknown rec
min 31 K4s: feel like too wide to call vs 3x 3bet. Much rather 4bet sometimes and fold
min 48 44: i really like the overbet river! where u planning on barrel on most rivers?
Aug. 1, 2017 | 12:52 p.m.
Solid video and session Serge! Not much to say really, just a couple of thoughts..
min 18 - 22: i generally dont flat IP vs MP with 22-55 unless i have fun players still to act. U mention setmining vs tight player, is this really EV+? specially with agrresive blinds?
min 44 - A9o: u said u find strange that he is flatting vs your big 3bet, when this happens i usually tend to give more credit to my oponents range and give up on boards like these. I rarely see u giving up :)

Hey Julian, im interested!! Been taking poker a bit more serious for last couple of years. Playing on various sites simultaneosly in stakes between NL25-50. I would like to review my Pokerstars DB which is only at NL25 FR.
I think my results are fine, but still a lot to improve looking to move up to NL50 FR at Stars.
Thanks, if u need anything else just let me know

Yeah u shouldnt have much of a raising range vs his polarized turn barrel. Whats the plan river when he calls? Donk all of your value?
If the straight gets there its gonna be hard to extract value (and it might get there with a club). Only on a disconnected diamond i think u have real implied odds.. I would fold, but i might be wrong tho ;)

I would CBet this, dont see any reasons to do something different (reads?) I would call river given how under rep our hand is. Some opponents wont have 44 in the coldcall range. And he doesnt have that many suited hands (discounting the ones in his 3b range, and the ones that the Kd and 8d blocks).
I know its an ugly spot that doesnt get bluffed often, but what was the plan after the flop check?
