You can try to filter for PLO and on the right side under 'more filters' select 'full ring' however i think most of the PLO MTT content so far has been by elite coaches like Phil Galfond, Richard Gryko, Alien Slayer.
Ive watched most of them and thought they were great especially Richard's so perhaps consider upgrading for a month to watch it (i dont benefit financially from this advice :))

I like the 3b with the 2 good suits against CO even readless.
Flop i lean towards check-calling as you would have to fold against a raise and would prefer to bet-fold a hand like AK42 with no gutshot and no backdoor fd.
Also if i bet i like a larger sizing on flop to set up a turn shove on a blank or otherwise favorable card like K or non straight completing diamond.
As played i agree with silverslick that you dont have the odds to check-call on the turn to the large bet and could peel against half-pot.
Hope that was helpful :)

Hand1: interesting spot for sure, as im not playing on anonymous tables my commentary is for a situation where we want to be balanced (lets say against a strong regular)

if we check range on the flop i think its very hard to have any check-raises for any size and be somewhat balanced so we probably should continue only with a call and h: ave hands that have some equity against 2 pair lets say KKQ etc or a high heart blocker which we can then bluff if turn goes chk chk (which you said it will often)

another approach would be to say our range has more doublesuited high rundowns and we can cbet at a small size with a high frequency (and continue to barrel turn river if we have a good blocker) because its gonna be hard for him to call down with 2 pair or even a straight against our range.

last hand: are you sure we shouldnt be squeezing pre? seeing the showdown it seems any doublesuited AK hand would push enough equity multiway at this table, and we can just shove any flop we have a piece of, perhaps the opponents will deny each other some equity as well.

curious what you think and keep the videos coming :)

i would prefer to not see a part 2 of this. Im sure this is great entertainment for those interested in that kind of thing but i feel your commentary adds very little - mainly because the overall level of play is so weak.
i liked your review of the episodes where you played yourself a lot more!

most interesting hand for me was the one where matt leads the nutflushdraw on J62 and the dude instafolds QQT8 backdoor flushdraw, pretty sure we should continue here in some way against the strategy matt was playing.

otherwise pretty boring content for me (dont mean any offense, i usually like your videos a lot phil and never comment :P)

did u really just say the guy who coldcalled half his stack with QJo is likely to fold the flopped openender? =D

really enjoy ur videos though thanks! :)

thanks for taking the time to answer!
that all makes a lot of sense and i think i should work on beeing more balanced in my check continuing range on boards like this.

really enjoyed this video - keep em coming.

question about the last hand (AA4 on 942r where u check call flop and 7r turn after 3betting oop)

im uncomfortable in similar spots because i feel against a good opponent when i check call my hand is quite face up because with a rundown containing a 9 i would probably want to bet for protection from random overcards he can have and 356 or similar combos is very rarely in my preflop range.
any advice u can give me? (i dont feel 3betting more junky doublesuited hands oop against good players is a good solution - for my comfort zone at least!)

thanks and again thx for a great vid!

on a side note, u might want to include more hands which u are loosing in the next one!
