Hey ! Great content as always !

11:13 Why you didnt include sizing <50% for oop player ? I think OOP player can definitely have some incentive to develop small bet Ott.

You let some some frec of 99/TT in the bb range, it is way too loose right ? Especially in rake environnement , but don’t think this is Going to change significantly simulations because it’s only few combos.

I personally like this format, but I think talking on all the turn and river on a specific spot is better for overall comprehension and learning.
Questions like that are always subjective. You have my thought on this one.

23 I like this sizing with AA. I think it’s a genius play to size up against good opponent, because for most players , it’s decrease your perceived value range : population tend to size normal AA , and size bigger AK when they need « protection ».
Also, it can turn some fold/BE rejam to +ev rejam If they think AA KK is not in SB range for this 3B sizing.

31 love this size. I agree with you that it looks quite suspicious (does AA really want to reraise?) but it seems more an exploit than a clear strat form C.darwin2 . If SB thinks that IP use too much trash hands to iso, imo : min reraise is a good sizing , allowing to have the best RR , and make your perceived range (against most opponent) stronger.

33:30 I don’t know how Sam plays his AJ Ato région pre flop,
but I think betting KQ here is not good. You only have one street against Qx and it’s the turn where you only want to bet polar. Also, when you x the turn you let an opportunity to Sam to drastically overbluffing, with all his JT T9 region on a blank and it’s for me the first element in the turn decision .
Notice that I play mid/high cashgame, so it’s possible that I messed up something or I don’t consider enough dynamic in tournaments.

Tx for this one !

21:57 You only construct your tree with a small ovb, can we use huge overbets here ? I guess if you let oop using 3xpot or AI on the river, it would change IP strat flop and turn, to avoid being exploited by OOP who can develop a huge betsize on some card.

48:21 Do you think an other raise size for oop should be use here ? Something around minraise or 2.5x , this strat allows us to put more pression to marginal hand , and also allows us to have a raise folding range. But on the other hand , I don’t think it’s a strat at these pos/spr.

Yes ! Thanks I corrected it.

How did you find this software ?

I really enjoyed this video also, this format is appreciated , and useful.
I learned some new stuff !
Thanks !

Comment | Yolan commented on Living on the Edge

I’m always wondering why there is only a small proportion of mental content, whereas mental part is as important as technical part, and why it’s not as popular as some other videos. Maybe because it’s not something « funny » ? Or maybe because it shows us some default we don’t want to face ?

Really great video, your content is really a +ev part from RIO’s video.

Keep it going !

Comment | Yolan commented on Five Practical Exploits

Good Job !

Also, we know that people under 3bet a lot of flop, we allow us to xr a bit more than the simulation adviced (was Explo 3)

Comment | Yolan commented on Every Turn Possible

Hey ! Thanks for this great content.

What would be the check raise frequencies as oop player on a flush turn ? Do we ever want to xr here ?
What hands we choose into the xr bluff region ? I notice that the entire part of Ahx is betting the turn, so maybe the xr turn region would be very narrow.

Sept. 10, 2020 | 8:46 a.m.

31:50 When the turn is an 8 , quads always bet but 99 full x , and we can observe a similaire thing on a 9 turn . I don’t think it would be a massive gain of ev to understand why, do you think it’s because of the blocker effect or the difference in equity of both hands ?

32 Against the small delay from IP we see the 22-55 region is ~ BE , how do you recommend to play thoses small pp against mid/highstackes population ?

Nice content ! Would like to see more of these.

Sept. 10, 2020 | 8:45 a.m.

Hey Nuno ,

33min, about this crazy hand .
Do you think going AI on the turn for llinus after limitless raise (and for limitless when Llinus 3bet) can be a good strat to get money with 5x+ fd to generate call from a chop ? Of course 65 is in both ranges, but we can assume llinus raise a part of them on the flop, so it could be a good play by limitless.

That was a weird hand, and a nice video !

Sept. 10, 2020 | 7:08 a.m.

36 min
It’s interesting to notice that
We pick 52s , otherwise, we don’t have enough 6x to put vilain indifferent to call or fold, so in this exacte situation , you can have a random hand (which doesn’t lock opponent 6x fold) to raise.
But it seems super rare in general.

That s an excellent content, one the best vid of your series.

Keep it going !

Sept. 9, 2020 | 9:50 a.m.

Totally agree with you !

We can’t really say « oh ev is ... it’s written in PiO » , EV of our strategy is just impossible to mesure, the elements you bring to the light have to be considered when you decide what strategy you want to use .

Hope Daniel will answer to thisone day !

Sept. 9, 2020 | 9:12 a.m.

Hey Tyler ! Nice Job, and quality content.

32mon Do you think even after x turn , having a shoving range makes sens here OTR ? Do you see any incentives to use it ?

35 About overbluffing :

Knowing that your opponent is not going to bluff the river super often, do you think instead of random mix all your bluffing combos, you can’t choose same based on their amount of SDV ? Like bluffing JT , mix QT and x back with QJ . It seems a better strat from my point of vue.

Sept. 9, 2020 | 3:16 a.m.

Patrick Cronin Hey, thanks for your response !

10:00 I miss read the spots and totally invented a new branch of the tree , sorry for that.


You got it, I was wrong here ! 86 pure small bet on the turn.
Notice that if we change just a little OOP strat , your whole strat is going to change (depending on how many AK AQ KK+ your opponent put into the X turn .

Sept. 3, 2020 | 8:32 a.m.


DemonDoink play ‘s is interesting here. Do you think Otr he intentionally decides to not jam AQ because he tought that you re not calling enough Ax turn ? ,
I know that Demon is a really good reg but I don’t think we x it very often in theory and I don’t see any particular reason to do it.

I don’t think you particularly need to call AJ ott, especially IF you think vilain doesnt have AJ in his range when he makes those sizes.
A5s seems a better call to me unblocking his bluff like KJ JT .

What do you think of bluffing Ax on the river ?

I like to auto bluff my weakest Ax on this kind of spot cause it’s a very hard spot for oop with a hand like AK , which is probably be at high frec when he took this line. We have Qxdd to bluff in this spot, so I will not go to crazy.

Especially because I expect a lambda reg to auto fire AQ+ on the river, I tought the shove can be higher ev than X.

15: I can’t see how a x can’t be much prefered than a jam.
When you x , you retain your equity better , even a 8 or a 6 can be good for you on the river. + obviously the cost of bet folding really hurts the ev of that hand into the small betting line.
Also, hands we target would for the most part xf the river, and when vilain x on the river we are not faced against 2p + often which obviously good for our EQR,
I will check this hand into pio but il pretty sure that x is preferred and you make a mistake on this one.

Glad to see I’m not the only one to missclick a lot ^^

Great Video !

Sept. 2, 2020 | 8:27 a.m.

17: 00 I don’t think unblocking the bluff is the only explanation
87 -> make top 2 when vilain is gonna bet a lot on a 8 on the river, so on this specific card , we are happy to have 87 who beats some values hands , even if JT makes str8. With a hand like 8T , We expect vilain to play a more polar strat’OTR , which of course decrease the ev and the equity of T8 against vilain s betting range on the river.

This video was one of your best in my humble opinion. Keep on going !

Aug. 9, 2020 | 7:36 p.m.

Great video, I enjoyed the format I would like to see more pio on your video.

NLZWERVERNL opening size : I think the most interesting things here is that he makes 249$ instead of 250$ . I don’t know if it’s for avoid extra rake or a psychological things, but he is one of the smartest guy in poker so there is definitely a thing here , he is not the only one to do that. I can’t explain that

37:20 KQ, KJ combos

KQ without club is not choose 100% . It actually interacts with all the AQo AQs vilain is calling with. KJ doesn’t interact with a lot of call (only small amount of AJ) which makes the J on the river a lot cleaner than a Q when we have a Q.
He prefers to have a diamond because he unlocks some call/fold and the spade is good because it blocks his 9xs as KQ with a heart doesn’t.


If you don’t have those AK 88 in your betting range, all AQ AJ become clear +ev call, which obviously decrease the ev of your overall range , because your bw hands interacts with « better » hand of vilain s range.

Aug. 1, 2020 | 6:55 p.m.

Tx for this video !

2nd hand with A3cc

Do you think it’s a spot where you can underbluff / or overbluff most z500 regulars because they will tend to be (it’s a supposition) far from the original defense frec given that it’s a rare spot with large ranges .
Also, do you think AK can play has a bet bet bet here ? I study some of these spots where AK is put into the 3barrel range and is a « value bluff » by generate fold from « weak » bluffcatchers as low pp and call by perceived strong bluffcatchers like AQ or AJ sometimes.

July 22, 2020 | 12:59 p.m.

Hey ! Thanks for this content, always useful and clear.

Don’t you think that the fact A9 is a good bluff on a lot of run out (completing str8 that vilain doesn’t have often) make this hand a better candidate to ovb than x ? Also, we know that pop would not have those few 5x 6x or weak hands that they have to defend with on the turn, and pop are not going to call 3barrel enough especially on cards when the str8 gets there. So it might be an argument to always bet this hand . Are you agreeing ?


X the river makes more sense imo, we don’t expect KK-Tx to choose the big size on a flop by a rec, we split with most Ax and we don’t allow him to bluff his trash hands.

Very Solid, Keep on going !

July 17, 2020 | 1:30 p.m.

24;35 Do you think IP would choose smaller bet turn at a high frec if you allow him to ?

July 13, 2020 | 6:46 a.m.


Yeah I wasn’t thinking about folding this hand aha .
Interesting, there is a little bit of calling in my sim. There are for low rake environnement. I wasn’t expected such differences.

Thanks for the preflop sim !

July 11, 2020 | 1:45 p.m.

Seems ok to call bb vs UTG 6max AK at low frec, even 100bb. Vs HJ its a clear mistakes for me .

July 11, 2020 | 12:30 p.m.

Thanks for both comments.

I play now on 1k+ an other format with Sb ante + straddle. The other format was super high variance and not easy to manage.

zinom1 Yeah that makes sense. Problem is the player pool tend to have limping and raising range in all position and it’s too difficult to reproduce in monker to have a applied strategy.

What sizing is the most efficient EP , LP and sb/bb ? I think it tend to be small size ep , and really big size on the button
Games play between 200 and 500bb deep, before any action, there is 9bb in the pot before any action .

Comment | Yolan commented on Onklebs 2020

Awesome results !
How many hands in z500 did you play during quarantine ? I never see someone with a 10bb/100 wr , so 18bb is very surprising to me (and I think for a lot of other people).

Gl at the tables

July 11, 2020 | 9:03 a.m.

17:00 right table. What do you expect him to bluff on a xc x bet line on this run out for this sizing ?

33:10 I never see K6o 3b bb vs btn at 100 deep, are you sure it’s a low frec 3b ?
You can have all your KTo QJo at low frec to have some off suit hands like that.

33:47 I don’t think it’s an easy call with AJo
Of course we have to call some Ax but it seems a sever under bluffed spot by population, he has 6 combos of 42 52 type hand if he calls pre with those hands, and I don’t expect his KQo KJo float to always bet cause these hands could be perceived by some opponents as showdown hands who benefits more by checking.

40:30 I liked your river sizing and your thinking on this hand. Well played

July 11, 2020 | 8:58 a.m.

Hey welcome !

21:48 Don’t you think OVB makes more sense than 3/4 here ? Also, you say he makes a pretty loose call but it seems decent. I didn’t pio the spot but I can bet that Q5 is calling near 100% (And other Qx are mainly folded at high frec)

27:42 If you think your opponent is really capped on this turn sizing, why do you want to block his 2p and set for check raising here ?

What’s your winrate on Bodog nl100, nl200 ?

Comment | Yolan commented on COVID Cbetting Course

I recommend this course, was very useful for me. QY s understanding of the game is very solid.

July 8, 2020 | 7:19 p.m.

Two for this one.


Don’t you think Jx with x spade or hand like ( J7 Q8 Q9) are better bluff catcher than JT ? Of course Jt can be called but these hands seems better to me.

20:00 It’s your worst hand to call imo. You block his bluffing region , unlock his value hand, and only have 2 outs to improve if he is ahead.
Having some implied on a 6 (34 79 74 make str8 if we hit ), let me fill that you have a lot of better hand to call with.

QJs hand, I don’t think Jakeeee s play is so bad. Ran this one , and even if A8o is clearly less ev, he might expected you to not minraising enough Kx , which could explain his loose call against you.

June 26, 2020 | 8:38 p.m.

Tx for this video ! Very useful as always.

I think exploit 101 on massive ovb or small bet (<1/4pot) OTR are interesting subject, it’s always betsizing vilain are not used to play against.

1rst hand, if the flop go x x , what’s your strat OTT oop ? Do you only go for~ geometric size , or do you have smaller bet sizing ? On a 4 , a 5 or an A for example. ?
