Watching a video where you just Run like god has very little utility and educational value.

Ok well.. Obviously lets assume the PFR is somewhat more reasonable then just barrelling 3 streets every time on these boards because obviously as you pointed out that is a ridiculously exploitable.. So i take it is impossible to make your opponent indifferent to bluffing off frequently on these boards from a theoretical prospective? Is it we need fold more of our range on the flop to make our opponents indifferent to bluffing? Lets take the A,K,Qr the best board in holdem for the PFR it seems almost impossible to defend enough on this texture since the PFR has all the sets, all 2 pairs, and all straights and we are as the caller are crushed range vs range. Is it we just need to accept that these types of boards are good for the PFR and therefore we cant do anything about this?

Post | redvulture61 posted in Chatter: Game theory question

Hi i want to know the answer to a question that has been on my mind. On boards which are excellent for pfr like for example A,K,Q, A,Q,J, K,J,Q A,J,K how can you ever make your opponents indifferent to bluffing 3 streets in these spots? The pfr has a huge range advantage so our calling range preflop is going to have huge problems on this board so whats to stop the PFR from just blasting 3 streets almost every time on these boards?

Thanks for answering my question Zac. I have only played as high as 2/5 live and this was only for a short period of time. I have not played for about a year so i am not sure how much the landscape of the games have changed. From my experience playing 2/5 though, only the best regs would 3bet light per say and these were few and far between. But poker is not as developed in my country as it is elsewhere.

Do people really 3bet bluff that often in live games these days? In my casino it rarely happens.

Great video man. I really love how you adjust your sizing to be bigger for value smaller for bluffs against weaker players. Its one of the most simplest most profitable adjustments you can make yet i see so many regulars just use static sizing against weaker players.

How would your strategy apply to say a 18% UTG range at a 6max table? In this situation you will be OOP a lot of the time in single raised pots and this does not apply to heads up. Also, what about multiway situations how would you apply this concept to those situations?

In the hand at 25.15 if you had 5,7 or 77s there do you think you could find a fold? Given that river action, you would have to think someone would have 99s, or 55s there.

Just a general question. Am i making a big mistake by always checking my entire range when the board pairs the 2nd or 3rd card on the flop? I just never really had a leading range after check/calling flop ever.

Any chance of changing it up in the future and doing a session review instead of a liveplay video? Just an idea.

WCGrider is Doug polk right? Could not get someone tougher to play against in a video series cant wait to finish watching the series.

How would you adjust to such a player? Just not waste your time and find another player?

The way to win is spin the $180,000 dollar game on a $60 and boom you are a winner.

I don't know. Isn't your Cbetting strategy exploitable by a player who is willing to bet turn then overbet river often with both value and bluffs when you check/back? I have seen Isildur1 use this strategy and it seems to work extremely well. It makes sense though because on a lot of runouts you are going to have a capped range susceptible to overbets.

You call a supernova a weaker player?

March 17, 2015 | 9:46 p.m.

Its really important to know the player when you call a 3bet OOP.

Never try to play optimal against fish your just burning money. Fish are fish for a reason because they have leaks which can be maximally exploited. You said something about your exploitative series was not that great. From the comments i saw, people loved it.

Can you change the format up for the next video? As much as i love the liveplay videos it would be nice to see a hand history review for a change.

Thanks Djunkell. Very helpful. But if someone is very polarized with any strategy isn't it counter intuitive to raise them again Eg 4 betting against a polarized 3bet strategy? Because you are either going to run into the top of their range which has you crushed, or the bottom of it which they can easily fold. Am i missing something? Thanks because your other adjustments seem very sound.

We don't even know what the GTO play in most spots is poker so why can someone ever say they are playing GTO? Having said that, Pokersnowie gave me a world class rating for 6max and heads up so i must play close to GTO without even trying. I think exploitative play is still the way to go because most players even at higher stakes have leaks.

Feb. 24, 2015 | 12:14 a.m.

True. But we don't even know if Pokersnowie is optimal. Some of its plays in some spots is extremely questionable. Anyway great series man. You have given me better methodologies to actively exploit my opponents and i will definitely rewatch the series to get a better grasp of all the concepts in the series because there is so much to take in. The players that give me the most trouble are the ones who raise your cbets often IP and will follow through often. Its a tough play to counter especially when deep. What adjustments do you suggest against these types of players?

How do you define the difference between a good hyper aggressive player like Isildur1 and a bad aggressive recreational player? They both bluff alot, they both put you in difficult spots so i don't know. I find the bad ones to be very stationy.

Butters aren't you a bit to young to be playing poker?

Comment | redvulture61 commented on ICM Intro

Hey Ben are you going to do a review of your recent deep run? 

Sept. 27, 2014 | 12:23 a.m.

I enjoyed the video but I think you are to focused on playing optimally in Live poker. Instead, you should be focusing on playing a maximally exploitative strategy as this is by far the best approach to crushing live games. In general, live players are much weaker than their online counterparts so trying to play optimally is just counterproductive. Furthermore, i think the hand in question which you analysed is very standard, and it offers very little utility value in what people can learn from it. In future, i would like to see more interesting hands where your decision making on streets is not so much set in stone.

Great debute.
