200 bobs deep flop and turn is def a bet. When you are in position you want to put your opponent in as many bad spots as possible. Especially deep, regs at these stakes aren't inclined to semi bluff for large amount of bbs, especially oop with a lot of money behind; therefore you want to bluff often and widen your value range. If villain is semi bluffing in this spot too often. There is a lot of ways to punish him.

As played. I think this depends a lot on your read on the villain. Do you think he's capable of having something like Axxxhh here? I feel like a player like this would still 3b a decent portion of his good AKxx hands here blind vs btn. So we should discount some combos of AKxx here.

A lot of his value range in this spot should be AKxx with a flush draw. Given that you guys are so deep, most good regs don't like to c/r turn here on such a dynamic board with just the bare nuts. Which in turn should discount even more of his AKxx getting to the river like this.

You block both flush draws with your hand. So in one hand you're blocking his semi bluffing range. While on the other hand you block a lot of his AKxx with a flushdraw hands.

All of the above makes me want to call.

But in the end with all that being said, It really depends on your reads on the villain. Some guys at these levels just never show up with less than the nuts here. I rarely give players credit for capable of bluffing in this spot unless they are spewy, or very very good(which is very rare at 100plo.)

This is a great video. This is the kind of advice that would make poker players a lot of money over the long run and make them a lot happier as well. This video highlights the importance of self-awareness and self-reflection. I'd advise anybody to check this out and really spend some time thinking about the points made in this video.

Thank you, Sean. This video definitely helped me put a lot of my thoughts, gut reactions, and feelings into quantifiable variables. Looking forward to part 2! : )

In the JThh hand vs molswi around the 12 minute mark, is there any merit to turning your hand into a bluff on the turn and barreling off? You are at the bottom of ur range here as its really hard for you to flat the flop with a worse hand with 3 players left to act. You have a jack blocker to flopped boats. And most important of all, I really don't think molswi expect you to ever show up with a bluff here. Also on the same token, molswi is a lot less likely to show up with slowplays here as the most likely slowplay is JJ, and if he has a value range for triple barreling it should include most KKs, as it blocks non of ur jack combo hands.

Also why is he less likely to bluff raise this texture on the turn?

I like checking river. I find that against good and very aggro players that uses position well. It's better to just be more passive against them oop while being balanced. Especially when you are deep, and just make sure you are protecting your range in different turn and river spots. A lot of hands that you get to this river with when you c/ca turn vs him are very weak marginal showdown value hands like 2 pairs and sets.

Also by being more passive oop, you can give him ample spots to value cut himself

Thoughts on c/r river?

I am not sure if I like potting this turn. If you get jammed on, then you're in a really crappy spot as you'd be folding away way too much equity.

You'd have to very certain of your reads that nobody is going to 3bet you on this turn. And even if you get like 2 callers(which happens a decent amount). You're gonna have a tough time playing rivers that don't improve you.

On the flop, I like cbetting in spots like this. I thinks it's a great situation as you get to isolate the fish and play turns and river in position. If you get raised, you're not folding a whole lot of equity.
