Hi, it’s the same here. I can verify that since a week there are shown super close spots in utg rfi and it seems that the obvious ones are excluded. it so much harder to streak now.
Edit: I just found out that if you set your settings in “practice” to normal, streaks is also affected and much much easier. Hope it helps you
Edit2: ok not correct what I said. I am really not sure what the mechanism behind vision are.

I suppose I am about to make a dumb decision, a very dumb decision, but I think its important:
I was subscribed to Vision until 19.January.2022. Somehow, I dont know how or why, I am still able to access it afterwards. At first it felt like Christmas, a gift sent from above, using Vision for free?! OMG! But on closer look I dont feel comfortable using Vision, with the thought in mind, that I unrightfully use a paid service because there is a technical problem. I checked Paypal and didnt see any booked fees from RunItOnce. "Maybe it is free sub month, and I just didnt read it anywhere" I thought... but I couldnt find anything on RunItOnce.
I guess the main reason why I post this vision bug, is because I dont want to be a fraud. I do really want to be successful in poker and I do know that maybe it could have saved me a lot of money by not saying anything when I look back 10 or 20 years on from now. But I think something else is more important to me.
Maybe I will regret it, after posting it. But hey, I do have a full time job to pay for it. If I am a poor college student, I could find a few excuses to say nothing.
Anyways, I hope it helps you guys to find the leak in your game ;) Happy 2022.
Here the sub:

Hi Nuno, I am a silent reader of your blog (well not silent anymore :D ). I find the way you approach the game very inspiring. If I should ever be successful in poker, your blog definitely helped me. I enjoyed reading your journey very much and I am glad that i could be a part of it. Thank you.
Since you liked “Maus”, I thought you may be interested in reading “Mans search for meaning”.

everyone who wants to try out spelling the screenname, try this funny combination:
spill (like spill over)
now drop the first "e" in "excite" and you got "spill+xcite". thats basically his screenname.
for the very advanced: use "sh" for "s" and "c" in "spill+xcite".

Well, In my opinion jj44 can also be folded preflop. Your hand needs to hit a set, and when you hit, you options out of position are really narrowed. And it just gets you into tricky spots - especially in deep stack situation
As far as I understood, you should often check/call flop since you won't hit that flop very often.

Yeah, as you said, deception is about having something the opponent would not expect.
I am not good in theory, but I give it a shot: Maybe one can call deception also "semibluffing" when betting a gutshot and hit on river - then our hand is somehow deceptive if we bet river. Or deception can be "slowplay" when checking a monster on flop

As plolearnerguy has said it, it depends on which position you are.
On small blind, Bigblind, UTG this hand does not stand much heat postflop.
Strong hands are hands, that hit the board postflop in multiple ways. With AA76 double suited or AQJT double suited are good examples where you can hit, set, flushdraws, straightdraws or all those combined.
Marginal hands are hands that only flop in a single way like KK73 without a suit. It can only flop a set to be strong.

I would bet/call and reconsider on turn. I could even find a fold on certain cards on turn.
But on that particular turn, 2h gives you an additional double gutter and fd - I don't think you can fold on turn when called flop.
But I am glad to know that c/c flop is a better way to play this hand. ty

Well played and very difficult spots, I am also interested in other opinions.
I would be more cautious making plays on unknown players who are nearly 200bb on a 100bb table.
Turn could be a potential jam spot. I guess, you can only bet/f, but not bet/c.
Yes, it would be different if stacks were shallow. He can jam on flop and commit, whereas if it is deep, he cannot commit and would rather call with sets or straights without redraw.
If he jams flop with 100bb, I dont think you can call that.

I would say: nice bluff! I especially like the blocker play on the river.
It is difficult, but if I would be the opponent, I would call if I had a straight (ofc) and sets. Your turn play is kind of strange, so when you had like a wrap or two twopair or sets, I assume, you would bet here often and even c/r. Therefore I could also call with twopair on the river against missed fd and your actual hand, .
So if you bluff, a part of my twopair ranges would fold (f.e. 27, 38) and a part would eventually call.

In my opinion, a raise on the flop would be better, because you are both deepstacked. And since you are in position deep, there are more possible hands to raise than just topset.
Turn and river are fine. Sizing is also ok.
Sept. 3, 2017 | 10:32 a.m.
I guess it would be less horror for you if you c/c turn. Sometimes I am in the same situation as you, when I have the 2nd nut with topset and I think that "opponent" wont have THIS low straight. And then I lose deepstacked.
I like your flop play, even though you didnt bet pot.
When the river pairs, I bet pot. When its a non-club A, Q, J, 2, I would call. Anything else would be harder to call.
Sept. 3, 2017 | 10:22 a.m.
I totally agree with folding the 99xx set in 13:30. I also think, that
raising pot and committing instead of minraise or 3x from the opponent is a sign of not wanting to see a turn card.
even if 50% of the time he has, lets say a FD+wrap combo, we still flip and the other 50% of the time KKxx is just winning. So its to our disadvantage to call against this range.
we also block small wraps like 78TJ, which makes it more likely that he does not have a wrap.

He slightly needs a little bit more than half pot to call you on the river. I would call with low pockets.
I guess your bluff is reasonable to get him fold straights, but its marginal, since you block a straight yourself and he is more likely to shove a straight on flop without a redraw.

Hi Leszek, i was wondering if you still comment on questions, even though the video is one year old? :)
If yes, these are my following questions (about sizing):
06:03 min. Table 2 - Would a smaller raise to the donkbet (less than potsize) be a better/worse play? The thought behind it is to choose a sizing that I would make, if there is no donkbetting.
13:00 min. Table 2 - Would a small bet (1/4 to 1/3 of the pot) be a better/worse play? The thought behind it is to use our position and sort out the weak hands, that would still have equity against us (even if there are four players in the pot).
Jan. 23, 2017 | 5:07 p.m.
I have a question to min 7:45 when you c-bet with QcJcAsTs. I am ok with cbetting, but what's the next step if you get raised pot here? Would you get it allin?
I would rather avoid that difficult decision and check back here, even with oesd+bd nfd+top pair, with the intention to call/bet turn. When the straight completes at turn, I could bet/raise there.
What do you think? Thanks for your answer!
