    very nice video like every video he makes

    Good video, good voice! But a lot of hands played very loose, or calls with incorrect odds e.g. the call on the turn with the 9s8s hands against "Dr. Stacks", dont think that the implied odds are so good if the weak flush will come?!
    Whats the style Jonathan Little plays in the MTT´s LAG Raises and then Pot Control- interresting, but defintively nothing for beginners.

    about last hand AcJc
    1)why u think that villain wouldn't 3 barrel with AK/AQ?
    imo flop Cbet + value/turn value + protection from draws/ river standard shove with whole his range that he bet on turn for balance blufing + thin value imo
    imo villain dint except to be call much except crying call from AJ/AQ type of hands but imo they will fold most of the times
    i think river is standard fold

    2) isnt his range on river (3 barreling) AA, TT, 77, 22, AKs, AsQs, AsJs, ATs, As9s, As8s, As7s, As6s, As5s, As4s, As3s, As2s, KsQs, KhQh, KsJs, KhJh, QsJs, QhJh, 9s8s, 9h8h, AKo
    i dont think he will bet 44 on turn and vs this range ur hand is in prety bad shape
    Board: Ah Th 2s 7s 4s

    Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
    Player 1: 88,571 % 88,571 % 0,000 % 11,429 % {AA, TT, 77, 22, AKs, AsQs, AsJs, ATs, As9s, As8s, As7s, As6s, As5s, As4s, As3s, As2s, KsQs, KhQh, KsJs, KhJh, QsJs, QhJh, 9s8s, 9h8h, AKo}
    Player 2: 11,429 % 11,429 % 0,000 % 88,571 % {AcJc}

    and sure we can take out weaker AsXs hands from villains range that make even easier fold cos only hands that we beat on river are KhQh,KhJh,QhJh,9h8h,KsQs,KsJs,QsJs,9s8s,

    btw i hate AJ always losing with them :(
  • JonathanLittle


    While some opponents will 3bet the whole way with AK, AQ, most good mtt players realize this hand isnt the nuts and will check it back on one street. However, most maniacs or players that overvalue tptk will fire three streets, making our call even worse.

    very nice vid - thx
    what about a next one - focussed on multi barrelling depending on stacksizes and positions?
    would be nice too ;-)

    Hi, Jonathan :) Some feedback for you from Russian community. It's about topics for future videos. They suggest barreling (2-3 barrels) and floating (IP & OOP).
  • JonathanLittle


    I like floating and firing lots of barrels. Sadly, I rarely do it because if you do it too often, you lose a ton of fold equity, making the plays useless. That being said, I will see what I can find. Thanks.

    I seem to be having some problems viewing this and other video`s from JL. The screen just turns into a mess of colors and I can`t see anything of the action only hear the talking. Does anybody know what might be the problem? I can watch other videos without a problem just not JL`s which sucks.

    On 19:00,

    Isn't better to just bet your A there, I think if you get raised, your prob beat, and you get to know it cheaply, and if you bet you prob get some value from a T or a 8, and actually every 6 8 or J kinda kill the action for you and you're prob beat and that's 12/46 so about 1/4 of the time, I think the difference isn't that big, but also, if you check the turn, and river, this actually becomes a great spot for the BU to bet, just because as you said, you're even going to fold your deceptive ace, so nothing is going to call him.
  • JonathanLittle


    12, I think betting the A on the turn would be fine some % of the time. I like making sure I can get to showdown, especially when I could easily be beat, as someone could have a better A. I also will get my opponents to bluff from time to time on the river when it bricks off, which will get a decent amount of value.
