Hi Richard Gryko , nice video! Around 25 minute, the nut-flush blocker hand, how often does this type of hand bet turn for full pot (nut blocker+top pair and less than two pair)? How often does nut blocker bet in general? I would imagine having top pair should decrease our betting frequency compared to unpaired blocker hands because we want him to have top pair from the flop which folds the turn. Is this correct?

45:00 You say you like his call with 55 because he is blocking 45. But wouldn't you be over-betting this combo? Therefore, it's not in your value-range for that sizing. Also he blocks some of your flop floats like 56s.Or is it because your flop continuing range is too wide vs 1/3 pot bet?

5:30 78o bluff. Is this a 100% frequency play or a mixed strategy? Are you not going to be over-bluffing if you always bet missed gutters? Because you call flop very light vs 1/3 pot. So you have a lot of bluffing combos.

Hi Richard Gryko , nice video! What are you representing with you bluff in the last hand on 532J3? Would you have bet Jxxx for value? Would you have bet a mid pocket pair like that? Because if not, and you talk about how little you interact with the board from SB, then you don't reprersent anything and he might just call you with A-high. I think he might have folded a worse hand there.

Hi Richard Gryko , nice video! I've noticed some of the hands that are leading are also sharing similar properties with the hands that are XR'ing. How do you make sure you have the right balance between lead and XR?

Hi guys, do you think his line is inconsistent with 6x? I think he would never bet so big with 6x on the river but he also wouldn't bet Kx on the turn. So he either has K6, 66, KK or nothing. He also showed some random spewy tendencies before so i decided to call. Do you agree?

Hi guys, i think people stab often enough on the flop with a wide range of hands. So i have fold equity and when all-in i'm never in bad shape except for when he has nut FD. Is this a good/fine play or spew?

At around 40:00 minute in the JJ v KK 3-bet pot you say he can't value bet his KK otr. You also say that your value range starts with Ax. If you check you don't have Ax then which means he can easily value bet KK and bluff also.

Last hand KKT4 T-high flush. Opponent showsdown Q-high blocker. After you XC turn you remove some % of nut flush combos from your range. Therefore from villain's perspective Q-high blocker becomes more valuable for bluffing than K-high blocker. You say he is limiting himself to nut-flush blockers but it has to be a mistake. Or am i wrong?

Hi Ben, nice video. In the AK v JTs 4-bet pot did you consider treating his small bet like a check and looking for a check-bet-call line in PIO? Then you could see if JTs is calling a bet otf and going from there. Because when you give him stronger and stronger range you make it unrealistic also. Instead you could treat it like a check and see if AK is double-barreling the turn or bluffing the river.

Hi Richard Gryko, nice video! What does solver do with nut flush blocker hands on the flushing turn after XR gets called on 632 FD Flop?

Hi Ben, nice video! When you talk about how EV changes in the exploitable sim do you take into account the changes in the other lines? For example if he puts more strong hands into a betting range the EV of a check goes down but the EV of a bet should go up? Or is it the total sum of EV of every possible line (bet-bet-bet, bet-check-bet, check-bet-bet etc.)?

@55. I understand. But on draw-heavy textures equity denial becomes important. You cant just bet 0,33 pot on turn. So you either have to play a 2 street game or have a very awkward spr on turn. I would choose the former.

at 55:00 34s 3-bet pot. Why do you raise so small on flop? Do you not think it would have been better to raise bigger and have a shoving stack on the turn? Look at the awkward spr that you created on turn. It forced you to check your hand which is not great. Semi-bluff shoving turn with spr 1 would have been very powerful and more +EV than check and realise equity.
53:00 KQdd. Why do you not lead turn? Do you not think you have a polarity edge on this turn? Do you not want to bet this specific hand or range?

9:00 KQ 3-bet hand. On the river you say: His bluffing range contains a queen so i don't like a re-bluff. Doesn't it make on the contrary a call worse (meaning he has more value) and a re-bluff better? If you know he has a marginal value-bet calling is bad but why is raising bad?

Hand plays bad vs XR. Has good equity vs trips but drawing dead vs a boat. So in case villain is XR'ing a lot of trips we have to continue but we're uncertain about his XR range.
