7:26 Table 2: OOP is supposed to find some mixed frequency double barrels on turn with strong text pairs? Some weak pair double barrels continue on river? In practice OOP can’t find enough bluffs on river?

Proselytizing doesn’t suit you; you’re very unsophisticated and pedantic, but I can refrain from making any more comments, it isn’t worth it

Sept. 13, 2023 | 10:55 p.m.

I love your videos generally, however; you're an extremely adept PLO player, and you're very articulate.

Sept. 13, 2023 | 5:42 p.m.

chill discussion? I don't considerate someone's unsolicited, presumptious speculations helpful, useful, or polite. I'm asking the content provider, who has reviewed the solutions in Monker, to refine his explanations. I'm sorry if exacting, direct questions run contrary to the "vibe" you're trying to engender.

Not looking for your opinions dude

A356: what hands are you targeting by barreling small on turn? Seems like IP will fold very few hands to small barrel. Is it partly to set up some river barrels on favorable cards?

Sept. 13, 2023 | 4:16 a.m.

A6T4: are you expecting IP to fold any amount of overpairs when you donk larger than 1/3? Is it a better set-up for making IP fold future streets?

Sept. 13, 2023 | 3:59 a.m.

Good play. Still, would like to see some high stakes cash, preferably deep-stacked.

I totally understand, I tend to do the same thing against opponents I feel are betting too much or too large across all streets.

36:13 table 1: you’re calling a bit wider in some spots, like this one with Kd8d, under the assumption that he is barreling too many turns and rivers as well. Wouldn’t you want to call less than GTO in these spots, anticipating too much aggression by IP? Perhaps x/r slightly less with medium-value and letting IP barrel?

9 min, table 1: agreeably a weird one given IP flop and turn sizings (bigger on flop and smaller on turn compared to GTO). Given the hand he barreled, however, it seems like this one might still be a fold at GTO. That is, since he triple barreled 87o it seems like A3o might function as a better call on the river both according to GTO and in practice. Surprisingly to me, it does appear that at GTO IP is barreling more hands like this (87o) OTT than he is barreling bottom end air, even 45 with a gutter. Do you feel that to be the case in practice? Do you think IP will potentially be significantly overbarrelling this turn spot with 64,54 type hands (compared to GTO) that he will continue to barrel on river? In general, do you feel like you are overcalling river in response to IP bluffing too much?

Good video; no one could accuse you of being criminally nitty.

Sept. 3, 2023 | 9 p.m.

Strong video: good use of color-coded graphs and hand examples at the end.

Aug. 31, 2023 | 7:48 p.m.

Not sufficiently long. I think videos should be at least 40 minutes in length

It’s astounding how much time people spend on these threads indulging in insubstantial and disingenuous displays of solidarity for the content producers. Personally, I play mid-stakes online NLHL and PLO and high stakes live. I have little time or inclination to watch most of what is produced on this site, but there are a few content producers who I watch regularly, including this one. I know he’s a high stakes winner and I further acknowledge the amount of time he invests and the risks he takes in trying to produce worthwhile content. Any criticisms I make are meant genuinely, to help me gain the most from the intellectual and strategic expertise he has to offer.

I think you should edit the video better so that it consists only of hands wherein you’re actually making decisions rather than filtering casually as you go

Aug. 24, 2023 | 4:53 p.m.

I appreciate the effort, however. It’s very sophisticated.

Aug. 19, 2023 | 4:35 p.m.

It’s a good attempt at distilling difficult concepts. However, I think at parts the interface is a bit busy, for example at 19:00, wherein it’s challenging to conceptualize the application of the hand across multiple streets involving multiple runouts.

Good video

16:21 table 1: I assume you’re implying that IP has an unbalanced turn betting range with an inordinate amount of Kx for this sizing relative to GTO range, which would check Kx back more frequently and have a more polarized turn bluffing, semi-bluffing, and value betting strategy. This is likely correct. However, for a hand like As8s to lead river, I think it’d also be necessary for IP range to have multiple, unbalanced turn sizings. My reasons for this are two-fold: obviously As8s blocks turn double barrels with spades, thereby blocking some of his river folds. Further, I’d contend that IP is likely unbalanced towards betting too many cc hands on flop relative to GTO, which means that were his turn range somewhat balanced, he might have more river CC hands—like Ac8c—than he would were he to check an appropriate amount of Ac8c hands back on flop. Do you think these assumptions are correct?

Lame and lazy

Good video—you’re quite adept at explaining complex strategic principles in English

Good video. Hand 2 was particularly interesting, as was your analysis; would have liked to see a node lock sim, however, in this specific case

Well played. Hoping for more cash content after you finish tournament series.

July 3, 2023 | 10:43 p.m.

Excellent content and explanations, as usual.

June 21, 2023 | 3:53 a.m.

Really inspired: seeing the forest for the trees, explaining the nature of graphs, and an allusion to the nature of hard work. In the future, I could forego criticism and just focus on making hackneyed comments and disingenuous displays of solidarity. Of course, that will deny my detractors the glorious opportunity to collectively malign their unknown enemy in defense of their apparently genius and beneficent master. Who am I to disallow such bold, thoughtful, and articulate praise?
