Very good video Alex, Curiuos if you could give a quick explanation here of how wide BB is suppose to call Igors jam in the 65 hand? Most 8x calling? Curious hwo much people are overfolding here ingame. Overall though, really like your video structrue and apprecaite the faster pace of review :D

Nice video Owen. I think creating games like this is a great interactive way to study. WIll incorporate this as well. And its a good warmup routine as well i think in a quicker way. ( maybe not recording etc. just warming up poker mind)

Great Video, I really like the "Simplification" of Pio at end. I am a big proponent of effective use of PIO versus what I think many do just trying to copy the strategies. Mostly I have just worked on categorizing hands and learning what types of hands want to do certain actions / sizings. However, your comparative EV strategy simplifying down to 1 sizing is a great concept that I will now incorporate. Def ELITE content for the site, one of my favorite video producers.

Great Work

Nice video Henry, you provide good content.

Couple thoughts on the last hand -
You stated that you thought the BB played the hand best of the 2 (despite both playing bad).
I think Buttons river value shove for 1/2 pot is actually good considering how hands played out. BB I think 100% on turn has 33,44 or Adx (prob mostly Ad2x, Ad5x). Blocking 44 his range is so weighted to Adx on turn and makes easy river value shove hoping to get called by the Ad combos.

Don't like the turn raise, but In position river play is acutally good imo cause OOP shoves turn w all / most flushes and even some 44/33 so A4 is almost the nuts other than 33.

forgot to add this combo was bet around 65% of time. W All the EV's of 1/3, 2/3 and Check being equal

1m Q3cc - In real time I assumed this would be bet at a decent frequency for protection / bluff potential? Assuming Villian 3b's 99.88 pre almost always at 40bb.. Ran a sim on it and came back as a pretty high frequency (70%) CB and favoring a large sizing (2/3's). Seemed that this board was bet 2/3 and then bet large on a large variety of turns. Thoughts on deviating here vs population assuming most don't cbet close to high enough frequency.

Great work as always Seth, enjoyed. Your Pio Reviews are on point.

Hey Daniel,

Great content and love the format

How many flops did you run this sim over? Would you just choose as many flops as your ram allows?

Hey Chris,
21:00 Tom's 1/2 pot Cbet w Q8hh.. Do you think there is merrit to size up his cbet in this spot from 1/3 pot because of the ICM considerations? By betting 1/2 pot vs 1/3 he can begin to really leverage Fedor's stack on turn / river with Brynn being short? I agree with the 1/3 pot sizing in a normal spot but does ICM allow the chip leader in this spot to size up to increase leverage later in the hand?

Stupid question probably, but why 3000T for bounty and not 1500T since it is half the buyin? Also how do you go about considering future edges when gambling for bounties early since it takes away chances to get bounties later etc.

Also general question in regards to defending the BB to min raises in these spots with a 15-20 bb stack depth. For example in the video the 95s or J6s you folded (but defending Q6s although a little deeper at that point). At what stack depth or what ranges are you defending rather than shoving or folding in theory vs a semi aggressive opponent like you played here where you have post flop edges.

Great analysis as always Nick. You do a very good job at deciphering ranges in both the videos in this series. Looking forwarded to getting to play HU in some SNGs ad hopefully a MTT or 2  this summer and take these ideas into practice.

Enjoyed the video. Really like you taken the few minutes at the beginning to set up the tables. Describe how you developed your game plan and find out which players you want to attack and how you will do it.

Really enjoy this format Espen, I agree though with 6 tables being better. Also how the hell can you stand the software on the top right table!

Thoughts on the 66 open at the 9 minute mark in the Turbo? Seems like it is a little to loose to open since you are priced in to call so many of the short stacks behind you? Just seems like a significant portion of your stack is going to be at risk most times for little % gain in your stack? Same goes with the QJo open the next hand? Both seem a little to loose to me but i could very easily be wrong

Can you talk about Sneakers fold with 22 in CO and 1.2 mil at 100/200k (5 min mark). It's probably closer than it seems in a vacuum since the UTG player has 1.1 m and will post the BB next hand?

Awesome stuff Jason. One of the better MTT videos ive watched in a long time! Love the ICM discussion btw

Jan. 25, 2013 | 3:44 p.m.

any thought of folding the 66 at the 15 minute mark. All options suck in this spot IMO. calling is obviously the worse, 3 betting sucks if he chooses to flat and shoving kind of sucks since it allows him to play pretty well vs your range. Doubt shoving is that much +ev and i feel that maintaining your big stack is way more important than risking 1/3 your stack for a very marginal +ev situation?

Funny you mentioned that Ben cause after he showed down the 97o i said to my self that i dont expect him to have much of a 4 bet bluffing range. That being said though what do you think would be the best way to proceed? Flatting pre seems like im losing a ton of value since it looks like his F3B is 0. If you do 3b folding to 4 bet? (seems bad) Folding flop? (seems bad) folding turn (seems reasonable?)? Im guessing just folding turn then? You read anything into his bet sizing on turn Ben? Seems pretty big given stack sizes?

Ill post hand vs then a couple of very relevent hands after.
Me - JJ Hijack with 17,000 chips
villan - Has me covered by a little, maybe 21,000
50/100 blinds

he opens UTG +2 300.
I 3bet 900 from Hi Jack
He 4 bets 2450
I flat

Flop Tc 7h 5h
he bets 2450
I flat
Turn 7s
He bets 65xx (I have just over 12k back)

Reads - We are in the 2nd level in the main event. 1 hand the villan opened UTG w 97o to 150 (25/50) got flatted and Ari 3 bet to 500 on button and the villan FLATTED the 3b oop with 97o. He then chk called a Q9x flop. (Ari is pretty well known good aggressive (Very) payer).
2nd hand - Ari opened mp to 150 and the villian 3 bet 350 on button w A7o. Cbet a Jxx board and check back on Q turn and called river lead with A hi.

I have been fairly active so far. 2 hands earliar button opened 300, i 3b 900 w 88 from sb he called (this is a different player). Cbet Q74cc flop. Chk chk K turn. ANd i value bet a K river.

Those are the 3 relevant hands i believe to describe the player. He is a younger player that at first glance you would assume is a good thinker. Ari knew him when he first sat down. Also good to note that this is a Re-Entry for flight 1b (this is flight 1A).
