RunItTw1ce this deep you're hoping for more "cooler situations" anyways, oop will fold more bc being oop at this depth is more brutal with marginal parts of range due to reverse implied and other self explanatory traits of being oop so going more polar therefore bigger sizing seems fine, and even if the size was somewhat suboptimal (don't really think it is tbh but playing devil's advocated) you're probably playing balanced enough where AA benefits exploitatively by shoving slightly more money in.
Overall, it's good to be detail oriented but even on 500 zoom stars I don't think being super nit picky on this sizing in 4bet pots where people play such static ranges to begin with is a spot where you're generating massive ev one way or the other as well.
I am no run it once pro though, these are merely my opinions.

RunItTw1ce you're discounting the fact that he's now 180bbs eff as opposed to 100 like previously

Pretty sure 43o at icm is a torch even at 4-5bbs vs utg even vs chip leader, cant imagine the value of doubling off having one less bb in this particular spot is drastically different and unlike the previous hand this stack now has a good chance of outlasting 3bb sit out guy. This is just intuition though and I can be very wrong as well, but principally low cards do much more poorly in stop and go/flop pair get in situations and I think at 4bbs this will still apply although obviously defends widen

Hey Teunuss, thanks for the good video.
Top right 4:56 K9dd on 2d 8s 4c, I understand how calling and raising are perfectly fine, you say that vs recreational you prefer calling let me know if my thought process is wrong but I think recreationals have way too high cbet percentage bu vs bb in general on this board and pio node lock work I've done prefers very heavy check raise with majority of range. I guess my question is what reasons is that you prefer to flat here vs recreational? is it just to keep a deeper spr oop and allow for them to make bigger mistakes on turn and rivers while not allowing us to get in tougher situations?

Hey Jae, really like your videos in general. Love your comment about how people do pseudo mixing or non mixing telling themselves they made good plays without realizing how their overall frequencies are very OOL.
At 19:57, you said this is a spot where it's hard to run solvers as I agree. I would approach this spot as betting larger or not is specifically a matter of how much Jx opponent has. As we are pretty polar on flop as IP I think a fair amount of Jx should be checking river for OOP and therefore it seems like going larger than what you did can start to go negative as folding out k high and decent amounts of a high seems to be accomplished enough with 66% and any larger starts to go negative with prediction errors by just running into 8x and jx.
Of course at midstakes I understand recs, as this player seems to be by limp call pre many players never check jx or 8x and if that's the player type then I tend to go large exploitatively to make sure the ax is being folded out at a higher threshold

Thanks Ben for the great video. Not as technical of a question but how do you think making a video like this (that I'm assuming deano may see) affects the meta as Deano may shift to a slightly more value heavy strategy and underbluff certain spots. I understand that his strategy is merely (I use this word in a very literal sense) forcing you to play equilibrium in spots where you may find exploits vs lot of population and so maintaining equilibrium will still be profitable obviously but I'm wondering if there are any higher level thought processes that can go on in terms of a "leveling war" (really hate using that term because I think it just sounds fishy) with the plausibility that Deano may see content like this.

Tarpon85 Yeah my thought at the time was it blocks 87hh that plays this way pure while the other combos probably mix to prevent overbluff; looking back its just dumb because bb 3bet vs button open contains so much more of the suited gutshot hands you mentioned while 87hh is one combo

Ben Sulsky Poorly phrased, wasn't a comment based on this player more so a general question (which just seems really obvious) at this point, I guess I was wondering more so a threshold for when we can start folding kx based on bad blockers and opponent's bluffing freq

I feel like these are types of spots where I do a poor job of managing my frequencies and either intuitively go with random club hands or randomize without having much clue of which clubs are better to bluff (although it does seem intuitive that middling clubs are better on ak2ccc in SRP specifically

Hey Kevin, thanks for the content; just had a question at 38:16 where you two barrel then jx5c on the A2Kccc47 board, what single club blockers are you looking for in SRP to turn into your threebarrel bluffs as well as the non club kickers to these clubs that pose some blocker effects?

@5:42 with 44 on k77 in regards to mixing bets with this hand, you said that you prefer to bet more frequently with your higher pocket pairs to get called by worse pp which is intuitive enough, What specifically is the differenciatior from this situation and a situation where pio prefers to bet higher frequencies with lower pairs that require more protection? If this was a single raise pot facing a wider bb defend range we would prefer to bet more frequently with 44 than 66 for example from a theoretical standpoint (although it seems like all our pairs seem like pure bets in this situation)? Or do I have this concept completely wrong?
