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.

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.

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.

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.

Me - JJ Hijack with 17,000 chips
villan - Has me covered by a little, maybe 21,000
he opens UTG +2 300.
I 3bet 900 from Hi Jack
He 4 bets 2450
Flop Tc 7h 5h
he bets 2450
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).
