I also started having this problem. Plays on IE, but getting dark screen on Chrome. Can you tell what's the problem?

I'm bit surprised that most of you strongly prefer calling preflop. The way I see it is this:
--opponent is quite loose, so will rarely have AA - only 12%.
--we can very easily fold to 4bet, because we rep strong OOP vs MP open and he is IP, so not much point for him to 4bet anything else than AA
--against $fi25!AA we have 59% equity. That's a huge advantage.
--playing 3bet HU pot with big equity advantage here seems better than playing single raised pot HU OOP or 3way with worst absolute and relative position

With this hand we flop {FD, bottom2p+, OP+OE, OP+NUTgut} 40% - that's not too bad, or is it?

good video, thanks.
Btw, you said you're "in Top10 zoom plo200 regs this year". What does that mean and where do you get this from? Not trying to argue your statement, just sincerely wondering

good vid, keep on doing PLO stuff

Artur, you're way out of line here. If you see a pro play a hand certain way, it doesn't mean you have to always play like that. Ultimately, what you or "average reg" will do after watching a video is up to them. Me, I got a lot of ideas to make my game better after watching it. And I love all Alex's videos, especially hh review ones - both hh selection and explanations are perfect for me

yes, thanks

very good video.
13:00 board is Q64cc4dd3 - you say you would bet big with QQ, but smaller with other boats. Why is that?

good vid, Stef, Really like the format. Will there be a 2nd part?

hey alex, 

kind of 'standart' spots, which is exactly how I like it, but ONLY if you go into detail about hero's/'villain's ranges, alternative lines amd so on. And that's exactly what you did, so definitely thumbs up for your first video!  

I would love to see you making hh review videos instead of live play at least for some time.

 I don't find live videos to be very worthy of time spent watching them, UNLESS you are very good player AND very good/experienced teacher, used to laying out your thought processes fast and fluently (Phil is the epitome of this). Most end up telling too much obvious things, like for example "you could XB here, but I chose to CB this time" won't do anyone no good - everyone knows of the two possibilities, but most are not so good at applying them accurately and do it more or less randomly. That's why I liked your video - because you analyze thoroughly and are very clear why you chose the line that you chose, even if there were other 'good/ok' possibilities to choose from.

Comment | organizize commented on Hand reading test

jim, your 2 points on not potting confused me a little:

1) I get the idea of bigger sizing = can bluff more. If on the river your range is super strong and contains little air, betting smaller could be more +ev. But shouldn't we bet big on wet flops even if our betting range is strong/very-value-heavy? Since by definition on wet flops our strong hands aren't SO STRONG.

2) Isn't this the case on most flops?

good vid!

Your double pair syntax is incorrect. (JJ-77:JJ-77) is the same as (JJ-77). You can type that in Range Explorer and see it yourself in 'Show Hands' tab. One of correct ways would be ([77-JJ][77-JJ]).

I used to make the same mistake myself when trying to shortcut a range of sets/2pairs. For example on QJT I would write (Q,J,T):(Q,J,T). It's very wrong though.
