Hey guys, so yesterday I came close to spiking a huge score but ended up coming short at 15th in a spot where I have some doubts about my play. The hand is vs David Bakes. I had been pretty active throughout the last day of play, though the final 2 tables I was tightening up and had been honest at my showdowns. I was certainly perceived to have a light squeeze range here, especially when I make this sizing.

The question is: Can I somehow get away ?

nice video Lucas. what are your thoughts for leading this 2h3hJs limped pot with so much backdoor equity and blocking a couple of QJ combos ? does WATnlos ever limp trap here with a reg on the sb? @9;30

great video really enjoyed it.

great video overall Gray
one question though, the first hand of the video you mentioned you can't profitably flat 87s 50bbs deep, what would you be your range for flatting in that spot? i personally love getting 3bet 50 bbs+ deep when holding a mid suited connector even if I'm out of position, i would much rather have that than AJ and broadways

Hey guys, want to share with yall a high variance play that I made against JasonX85 and wanted to hear yall thoughts

As most of you know JasonX85 is one of the laggiest players on stars. Me and him were in an absurd level throughout the final 3 tables.

Im 3rd in chips, have been involved in multiple 3 bet/4 bet pots with him..

my thoughts on this hand was that he never has 88+ here and most of his flatting ranges consists of equity hands on this flop, and me not blocking a spade made me think i could induce him to shove his spade draws or open enders, etc.. I acknowledge that im basically flipping when the times he doesnt have a set (honestly, I think he would shove any pair based on what ive seen from him and the massive level we were at) , but I was very confident that I could induce him to shove his equity hands and at this time I took the risk in order to have a massive chip lead 5 way and scoop the title. Not sure if is the correct play though

Hey gray, don't you ever consider shoving at the $109 Turbo the K9o ~3,5bbs (min 18:33) since there's more dead money and K9 has enough equity to go with that stack? What is your pushing range from there? U prefer calling any2 on the BB always cause u have no fe with that stack? Would you play the same at a smaller $bi and easier field? Thanks and great video!

or check calling and check raising turn but he could lead sometimes idk

Dec. 29, 2014 | 6:50 p.m.

I also think most of his draws would be check raising more often instead of leading. not sure if its true though

Dec. 29, 2014 | 6:50 p.m.

I figured it would make sense for him to lead 2 pairs to get 3 streets against AA, AK and prolly dont miss value against QQ on flop. I agree Prince if i had Ac id def peel

Hey guys, as some of you may already know i had a deep run at Bsop millions this past week and the footage is up on youtube and i have a few interesting hands.

I was playing 57%vpip and 41% pfr at this point, had a sick dinamic with the guy i was in the hand, who was 28% vpip and 18% pfr

I liked the result of this hand I played, He had heroed called me before with success and I thought this was the perfect spot, however, who knows he could be trapping with A, checked back 5 or maybe PP higher than 7, thats why my question.

the hand is at 6:46:30

Dec. 5, 2014 | 6:55 p.m.

I did win like 75% of the small pots in the HU but the ones i lost were pretty big the dude made a Royal flush in the HU hows That for running decent lol jokes apart he deserved the title

Dec. 5, 2014 | 6:49 p.m.

Thanks guys and Rapha i did watch a few of his vídeos and was valuebetting even bottom pair sometimes lol i did forget to mention him so Kevin you are also a part of this though i focus more on mtt vídeos

Dec. 5, 2014 | 6:45 p.m.

Hey guys, I wanna thank all of you, both the pros and the members who helped me out in previous threads because you are all a part of this, just finished 2nd at the BSOP millions 2014 (biggest mtt ever in south america) and 2nd biggest in the world behind WSOP. Beyond thankful in special to a few pros who I watch more videos and influenced my game such as Stephen Chidwik, Grayson Ramage, Nick Rampone, Jason Koon and Espen Sorlie. You guys are the best. Could not be more thankful this was a life changing moment for me and It hasnt sunk(?) in yet

great video man.
at @12:30 when you open shove T8s utg

how do you like opening 4x and leaving a few chips behind so you're not explicitly all in ? i ve heard from other pros that some people multitabling see a 4x raise utg and dnt notice how many chips your left with and over fold hands they woulda called the all in

Nov. 14, 2014 | 3:13 p.m.

another question.. @29 on the bottom left table HU, you folded 78o for a 3bet. how tight is his 3betting % for it not to be a profitable call in position 200bb deep? would you have called with ATo for instance? 

Sept. 18, 2014 | 2:49 p.m.

nice video teunuss. at around @6 when you 3bet ATo how do you like building a checking range on those kind of flops n going for a delayed cbet or check/calling flop n betting river when it goes check check turn? I feel that it works better as a bluff and avoids difficult turn spots since its plausible  to take this line with slowplay boats and AK, KQ, Kx even 9s, also because he could rep a 9 floatting the flop since connectors are n suited gappers with 9 hits his range harder than yours.

Sept. 17, 2014 | 1:13 p.m.

he ended up having AK(which made me regret not 3bet pre flop lol) and i ended up checking back and won the pot

Aug. 22, 2014 | 5:01 p.m.

Indeed it was a mistake not 3betting, I was used to seeing 2x, or 2.2x, then someone does 2.5x I put him in a not so strong range and decided not to 3bet, also I agree I should have bet larger on the turn, I tried to induce him to shove those 1 pair hands with a T to shove ott since obv he would have bet nuts, thanks Raphael.

my thought process pre flop was that his raise size was somewhat large for this stage of the tournament though i had just moved not sure if it was his pattern, but i figured his size was somewhat of a middle pair or AT/AJ and I wanted to keep him in the pot n not scare him away with a 3bet, maybe i should have 3bet tiny but as it played out how would you guys have played the hand? thanks

also at @21:30 with KQs on the blinds, having a 4bb stack to his left, i feel that being suited works much better calling also because he is very rarely light opening with a super short stack to his left
