Obviously English isnt my first language so sorry for poor phrasing.
I just wanted to say that I think you are the biggest factor in here that helps people understanding poker better and becoming better players.
I think people will benefit more from watching your theory vids / reviews / liveplays and not from knowing how to get staked and not get fckd.

man, does raising 6 cents to 10 cents looks strong? if not why dont you 4bet? especially with OOP flatcall which is a weak play aswell... you're letting them realize equity to cheaply..
this is the most important in this hand, you must have a solid preflop plan to be able to understand ranges postflop... now ur in a situation, where u have no idea what his range looks like but also u dont know your own range..
to me his line looks full of sht, but with such undefined ranges u can only guess..

i wouldnt be mad about betsize, coz u wouldve lost more :P
best advice from me: sit down, take a pen and paper, and count your value and bluff combos
most likely youre to bluffheavy but the worst thing is that against some playertypes (especially on stakes u play) u will burn money having to many/to weak bluffs
btw u realize that u have here 4 straights ( one of which is a flush) ?

If you see there TTc JJc, thats not that good for us, that is one thing
Second is that, I can see quite a few flushes there, against which were almost dead
Third is, its not that easy to bluff there, given his tight stats, he will have mostly suited combos here, remember he called your 3b OOP
For bluffs which will make, at least some sense I can see like AQc/AKc (which should consider x/c sometimes with no strong reads)

great video Tyler! these are my favorites, not live ones.
btw, I think your doing such a great job by always being open minded, taking into consideration many important strategic actions, many versions of the situation(like here different rivers/different flop defending strat etc)

^ pretty much this
as played I'd call the flop 3b, and realize % of my equity

ban him plz

as far as i know, when u allow flatcalls, it always advocates defending 100% range out of BB (or almost always), bcoz it calculates flat, as a checkdown till the end of hand meaning u can realise 100% of your equity.
Dec. 21, 2014 | 12:22 p.m.
Obv, I know, that I should not 4b as a bluff etc, but was more interested in how much more we can fold23b than normal?
If I open on the BTN ~55%, got 3b by BB, my borderline queen to call would be for example QTs. Now if I play vs the player, who 3bets from BB like AK+ TT+ only, what adjustments would be the most important other than not 4betting as a bluff?
I mean, it isn't so obvious to me that I should fold more to 3bets, or at least I don;t think much more

Hey, what should be our approach if, lets say we're playing from the SB, and BB is defending like 60% hands by call, and ~10% by3bet , but with no 3b bluffs ?
How the situation changes if we're OTB against same type of villain(who doesn't have 3b bluff range) ?
Thanks for all the input

I'd guess not many ppl are missclicking nowadays, bcoz of TN/hotkeys/bet sliders etc.
Personally, I'd believe a bit more in some weird ammount 3bet (like 4499 if the reg's standard would be to type manually not round ammounts bets)

If our range is so much stronger on the river, given that we have nutted combos of:89s, 9Ts, 8s, 9s, Ts, may have Qs, and have very many straights shouldn't our strategy be to lead aggresievly?
Sept. 24, 2014 | 3:19 p.m.
hey, great vid as always :)
at 29min my first instinct would be to just lead the absurd % of our range on this river
on that strong runout for us, isn't AQ almost bottom of our range (apart from KQ) and losing to AA/KK would be quite shitty outcome?
there are plenty of hands in our range which want to go allin, is that a bad strategy to have? (lead AI on the river and balance it with these KQ/AQ)
Sept. 24, 2014 | 6:33 a.m.
You should have quite many better combos than this, like 4s/Ts/Js sets (obv depending how you play it pre), lots of 2pair hands, maybe few Q9s combos, AQcombos and KQ combos, so I'd guess this hand should be close. I'd guess I'm calling here if I expect BB to 3b, and barrel quite a bit heart heart combos, so here that should mainly be AhXh, but I'd guess most of villains on this stakes do not 3b these to often..
Or obv if you know opponent have some leaks like betting hands he shouldn't be and/or paying you off on 9/J/A rivers and/or folding on heart rivers with anything other than AhQh, which I'd guess plays like this 100% of the time by anyone
As for the shoving range, I don't know if you should have one here with no specific reads, given huge part of villains value range should be str8
Sept. 21, 2014 | 7:18 a.m.
yeah, i mean I can obv go for 3 streets against SB, but i don't think i can vs BTN, and I have to take them both into consideration when I'm on the flop.
against only sb i'd be sure i want to take the b/b/b line, but with 2 players it should be different, don't u think? if my reasoning is good, which street would be better to check?
Sept. 20, 2014 | 8:27 a.m.
and I'm wondering now, if the bet flop/bet turn line is for sure the best, bcoz I dont think we can go for 3 streets with this hand, and we actually don't have that much value combos which are happilly barreling this runout...
these players probably have quite high set/2p frequency, and i have v little fold equity given how this board should hit their ranges
and if i check somewhere i can rep like shittons of high Ace combos, and maybe that's the hand I'd be better trying to rep, than repping like only high flushes, ow which aren't that many or sets?
Sept. 20, 2014 | 6:11 a.m.
hey, very nice post man, thanks:)
the only thing i'm not sure about is the 56s being a flat or squeeze issue, but well we cannot know answer to that i guess.
i'm just not to sure about it being that much better of a flat here because:
it's good for board coverage in 3bpot i'd guess
it's much less dominated in 3b pot than vs a btn open + weak but somewhat dominating us sb's range (in my games at least)
