      I'm just sitting here with my mouth open and thinking wtf.. So this is "poker mixed with humor", nice. In my opinion the part where you assumed that your assumptions are correct was the most funniest. :f_drink:

      This reminds me of one time when I opened 88 from BTN and BB calls, the flop comes A89. I assumed he doesn't have AA or 99 and bet OTF and he folded. Keep up the good work. =) =) =)

      ADDITIONAL INFORMATION about VIDEO:

      I am playing as most aggressive poker as I can. Actually I did not play against noone yet who played as aggressive as me in my whole poker carrer.
      - Everybody has their own opinion in what good play is(I think that is why poker is fun; I think there is no 100 % perfect game in poker; so many factors,..- only my opinion.).
      -I am playing aggressive poker (I am trying to win allmost every pot in which I think my opponent is weak). Sure that means that i am playing with a lot of air. But If my opponent does not know that I am playing alot with air, it really does not matter if I play with air. There are very few players that would call turn with low or middle pair, even if they knew I am playing with a lot of air. I play the same way strong hands. Also, there is reason why I made 3-bet(one of the most powerful moves in poker(usually means very good hand). A lot of people are "scared" of 3-bet. Especially with ace on flop like in my video.
      -Yes, this can go wrong from time to time - rarely(I mentioned how in video in the example; if he had flush option and he would hit this flush on turn then I would probably lose all my chips- low procentage for that(you can not win every game at poker,...). Even If I would lose this game, I would adapt my game style in next game with him(I would be playing very different; but still aggressive).
      - I represent Ace on this flop, does not matter what he has(options of what he has are written in video;also he can be bluffing with his reraise on flop) he has less then 40 percent in his opinion to win this game (flush draw or straight draw has less then 40 percent to complete),...In HU poker if you are trying to hit 40 percent and if you "know" your opponent has something(my "ace" in this game) this is very bad move(40 percent and all chips(possibly)) - losing money move in long run.
      - I raise allmost everything preflop in the beggining of sng - hu(blinds 10/20) and then I see what my opponent "tell" me on flop,... - by aggressive poker you put your opponents in awkward positions(in which they tell you alot of informations and people usually do a lot of mistakes if they are in awkward positions - people react wrong in awkward positions ). And this way is alot easier to put your opponents on cards. Alot of people does not understand that. Very hard to explain.
      - Aggressive poker does not mean that I can not fold or something like this(or playing like maniac)- alot of people does not understand that one.
      -Person that I played is not completly rookie or begginer ( only complete begginers in my opinion you can not analyze- well you could but to a certain point,...) - other people can be analyzed (alot of people play by pattern-but they do not know that) . This pattern that i mentioned is visible when people are in awkward positions. That is why aggressive poker makes money(not maniac poker) in my opinion.
      -This opponent in the video is never chasing something unreasonable(everything that has low percent to win game). He is playing actually good poker.
      -When you bluff(this one you should read carefully because it is not allways like this; but usually is like this you need initiative after every your move if you want to succeed- hard to explain- if I try to explain this very simple - you should raise or reraise with every move(For example in video:raise preflop, raise on flop, 3-bet on flop, raise on turn; after every his move I took intiative in the hand - that usually means very good hand) - even if opponent does not know alot about poker he usually "knows" that you have very good hand by doing that.
      -Probably he is ahead on flop. But I do not care about that. That is why I think this bluff is excelent. I am not trying to fold here. I am trying to make him fold, .I was allmost sure that I would win this pot using every poosible thing that I know about bluffing(alot of things are mentioned in the video and in all the text i wrote; I did not mentioned everything because it is so much to write; maybe I will some other time). You can look video again and see at which point I "know" he has nothing worth calling my big raise(not preflop).
      -about folding my hand: in the worst case scenario for me he has flush draw( that means he has 19 percent to "win on turn"; that means he will unlikely hit this). Others options have less percentage to win. He missed everything so he folds, like I assumed because all ot the things I wrote.
      -about him slowplaying - Because i am playing every opponent as idividual and unique i make some assumptions how will they play something(how did they play in the past,...).The easiest way for him to win my chips is to slowplay monster hand(i raise so much,..) and not by reraising me with monsters(I usually fold) . But this is just this person. Some other people would do different thing. Anyway, when you assume how your opponents will play you must take alot of factors into consideration(even if he is not experienced player, he is doing some moves by pattern; probably he does not know that). I know how I played when i started and I know how begginers play(they are doing alot of things by pattern - and they do not know that).
      - I think this bluff is very good also because it is out of the box thinking(big raising ,.. but if I assume all that i wrote here and in the video; that is EXCELLENT BLUFF).

      Interesting hand I think. I would always raise 3x in BB.
      This way the limper don't get good odds to see the flop.
      Than you can bet half pot on flop as well and shipped if you think he made a bluff raise.
      Now you're flop 3bet sizing looks fishy and you give him good odds to call with his entire range.

      Cheers,

      Additional info about video:

      Question: WHY I DID NOT GO ALL IN ON TURN?

      Answer:I was thinking either should I go allin or either should I bet half pot. I am almost sure the result(him folding) would be the same also by going allin. Also, I think that half pot raise(after 3-bet on flop) on turn is very powerful move (in this case it is saying: I know I am better (and I will probably be better after showdown) but I want a little more of your chips; he does not want to chase his options; very low percentage to hit river that would helped him; and he does not want to give me more chips, so he folds;I also allowed him to reraise me(even more powerful move); something like this). This is my opinion.

      INFORMATION THAT IS MEANT FOR EVERY VIDEO that I posted: I have provided very in-depth explanation. My thinking time in the video is less then one second for every move. How is this possible?
      I have played alot of HU games(Hypers). I can do very quick decisions but only if I determine how my opponent is playing(his ranges,...) If I do that I am playing allmost automatic - less then second before my move(I have played alot, so I have experienced alot of situations like this; and most of the time results of situations are the same,...). But If I want to explain this to other poker players, I must write better explanation why I did every move(and I must write alot more - especially If i want to make videos that are understandable for begginer poker players). In the video I put thoughts (briefly explanation). And then I put better explanation (alot more written) in additional information if I think that some sentence or move in the video needs additional explanation ( or if someone ask me for better explanation). I am doing everything allmost automatic in reality (becouse of reasons mentioned above plus some more).
