Hi, nice video! At min 30, with KQo you say that you can just call with hands with a diamond. But what single diamond hand are we betting three streets with that sizing? 66d and maybe AAd?
I think this is a spot were people are always peeling the flop with the AdXo hands, and given they are in BB, they have a bunch of unsuited combos that could potentially be turned into a bluff. So maybe call could be reasonable with your combo? Or am I misjudging how often people actually call with AdXo?

At 43:16, would including 32cc in a leading range be bad? It seems like a prime candidate to turn into a bluff imo. It makes sense for BB to lead on a 6 o get value from 77-AA, since those are checking back river when BB has 6x or Tx

hi, at 6:50, you cbet 99ds in a 3B pot BB vs BU on A34ddd. I'm don't really understand why we are betting here with the 9d though since we don't need much protection, and with a bet don't we just polarize his range Ax and hands with a diamond. I guess, I just don't know what the benefits of betting would be in this case.

7:15 on table one, you say that 66 is a fold vs the SB squeeze, but why? Is 66 just unprofitable in that spot? The squeeze didn't seem that big and we have rec behind that is likely to call and probably make some big mistakes in a bloated pot

So I have an issue where I end up playing way too much when I'm on a down swing. I feel this urge to just keep playing and notice that I'm making quick decisions in these sessions. I don't make any horrendous plays (I might call a bit too often), but I notice that quality of my overall play decreases substantially especially in small pots. Any suggestions on how to fix this leaks? Thanks!

It definitely sounds like a mental game problem. That and you probably don't know your ranges well enough on that board. There are a few things I would suggest:
1) Take this mistake as a learning opportunity. You obviously don't know the spot well enough because you blanked mid hand, so do some card runner ev or pio work on it
2) Keep observing these moments that you become tilted. They will let you know where your weak point in your mental game are. The real mistake is letting this lead to a mistake in the next hand. It's normal to feel frustrated in these situations, but you can respond by making more mistakes or learning that mistakes are just part of the learning process

I'm just not folding 2 pair to a fish in this spot. There is always the chance they are punting with some stupid shit like AK or some other random hand. Although I do agree that it does look pretty strong and we do have better hands to call with. Either way, I can't imagine it's a huge mistake to muck or call given the few reads.

Hi, for the hand at min 8, with AJcc, are we assuming that a fish will bluff there too often on the river? Obviously the case here, but in general I would be expecting them to checking back a lot. Especially if they have a set or some 9x. I don't see too many bluffing combos relative to the hands that might snap call a lead.

I can't think of too many bluffs here. Perhaps AsQx/Jx but if they might even squeeze those pre. Given that, it's way more weighted to over calling smaller suited aces, imo. I'd think just fold should be fine, especially 4 ways.
As for a solid calling range, i'm really not sure. I want to say blocking spades is good but their main bluffs might be with off suit As, so what would they be bluffing with if we have it?

Hi. Minute 9, the river bet with A7, I don't really get. Are we hoping to get paid by 6x exclusively? Or perhaps A high putting us on QJ, KJ and KQ? But in that case we also block those calls...I play much lower but this seems to have gone over my head.
