Hi, great review and love the use of node locking at the end. Few questions.
Any reason you choose to input raise & bet sizes with factors of 999%, instead of clicking the All In button on each street?
You touched on not finding a donking strategy with this deep of stacks, do you still do this for EP? Seeing as we have a bigger range adv as opposed to when CU is opener and not EP, therefore donking becomes more profitable?

Hi, I am looking to find any information on super shallow stacked PLO 10-25BB (no ante with rake). Is there any information like this on previous threads, any RIO videos or any charts someone could point me to?

Around 41 mins, you xc flop w 95dd in a SRP and the turn goes xx on 974sss2xAx...you imply that you aren't implementing block bets, is this bc it isn't adding much EV to your strat? or is this an exploit vs player/pop sorta thing? would like to hear thoughts. ty

26 mins or so--SBvBU 3bp w 99 on 976dcc4x5x... you say his turn float w/ AdTh vs 1/2p is horrible, however, I'd agree its fine since if he's not floating a hand like that OTT, which fwiw is mostly ahead of all your semi-bluffs, OTR 5x he only ends up being able to bluff pairs or FDs which seems quite inefficient. (The flopped FD prob end up being worse bluffs OTR than the AT anyways in terms of removal.) So to me, it seems like his play is fine even though it's going to be a pretty breakeven call OTT. I'd imagine he's likely getting overfolds from your JJ-KK, 9x, A7 portion of your range on this specific river since you'll perceive him to be under-bluffing, which will help the EV on his turn call (you're not putting those ATo, JT combos in his range.)

29:59 3 way sq pot w T9cc, what hands r u lead bluffing turn w? as we flop either a ton of air or flush b/c flatting range is not including offsuit broadways (we don't have the AcJx KcQx type hands pre now since 3 way)
seems like the 44c or like a A4hh (blocking AhAc or AhKc continues etc) but interested what u think here. ofc we get the AcQx or AxQc, is that sufficient enough for us to bluff?

Spr is 8, so we could just half pot it down which probably gets stacks in (kinda late to do the math right now). But yeah we're put in a gross spot, however if he can ever c/r AA or KJ for value here then we're in fine shape to rip.

As the two people before me said, we should just float this flop. Two overs and a backdoor getting this price is fine to peel and not raise. His range should be stronger when he donks multiway and we're just making the pot huge when we only have ace high.
As played on the flop, I'd just call down, no reason to make the pot even bigger with one pair. Don't overplay the strength of your hand in this spot.

Everything seems perfect expect flop and turn bet sizes. We peel preflop bc were deep and want to seem a flop like this.
I'd bet $0.8 flop, pot would be $2.60 and effective stacks $7.5
I'd probably bet/call $2.25 turn, pot $7.6 and effective stacks $5.25
---I say probably b/c his turn raise looks very strong
If he had KK/JJ/77 it's just a cooler

Completely fine with limping A5 suited, it keeps worse flush draws in that might fold to a raise that you can flush over flush. When you raise and flop an A its an awkward position since most of the hands continuing are gonna be better Ax. As for this situation you're hands probably too weak to call preflop oop headsup against an aggressive reg. You're gonna be check folding far too often on missed flops and when you flop an A you never really know where you are. For live play, limping the A5 suited is definitely ok imo for the above reasons though.

he can't have 33, he wouldnt 3bet, also people on tilt don't usually 3bet bluff imo. They're much more likely to peel, hope to hit, and check fold most flops. AA or AK diamonds are maybe two hands that we beat but its a pretty gross spot. I'd prob call since its a set and hope its AA.

Folding is fine since we're likely to go multiway and we just won't win often enough. We also get squeezed sometimes here, and just have to fold.
I think 3 betting would also be okay. We look very strong, but I think this should be only against certain players (high fold to 3 bettors % and/or open wide from ep).
Sizing wise I kinda like 600-625.

Okay, I agree over limping is fine. We sometimes get overflushed though I think. We get to this spot with a lot better hands in our range (suited aces, KQ, overpairs) so I think checking back and giving up is fine. Our equity is fairly poor when called and sometimes we can bluff certain turns I feel like.
However, if the board was the same except the 5 was a club, I'm assuming that's a better spot to bet as we can barrel on club turns.
I like what timetopop has to say about our turn action. We clearly are getting an amazing price, but we cap our range a lot here. If we had AA, we would raise to get value from so much worse (which villain can def have a lot of Jx, Tx, fd etc).
I think he could show up with a lot of Jx type hands here on the river, and without any info on his limping range, giving up is probably fine since I doubt he'll ever fold those.
