    Great video Boomer. As a suggestion about future videos, maybe blind vs blind is a really good topic and something that is personally a problem for me are lighter calldowns with medium hands.

    "So I put the raise in and SB and BB both fold cos this is my video and things work out for me"
    very nice :)

    1st hand:
    don't you fear to get c/r on the turn? If not, what would you do against a c/r? Would you fold for he's a weak TAG? Or would you call down? I think it's difficult and he could play b/c c/r with Kx, 5x as he doesn't have to protect very much with his hand.

    3rd hand:
    why not peeling with Ahigh versus a donkt there? I mean if we fold we're very exploitable and SB could just donk any2 against us as a purebluff, I wouldn't risk that. AT, AJ, AK all have 6 Outs against the PPs in his range und against any 7x.

    I would never fold there, maybe calling, maybe raising to balance my valueraises if he folds too much and especially if he's able to fold pairs.

    First hand

    Yes I'd probably bet/fold the turn vs this guy becasue he's such a Tight TAG I don't think this would be a fold he'd exploit. Sure I do fear it somewhat but the actual gains I get from the play do outweigh the cons, especailly if he folds a hand with 6 outs on the turn.

    Third hand

    Yes you're right folding there's too expoitable and I probably got carried away with AT there but I think Raising here especailly with a good A-high is a better option than calling it becasue we basically have no peeling range on the board with isn't A-high if we're going to call it.

    I think the Flopdecissions were pretty easy. it was always close between raise or call so this is in direct position mostly a raise. But what if it is call or fold? Like AQ on Kxx in a big Pott?! Or 2nd Pair on a 3suited Flop no FD?
  • Boomer2k10


    There are situation where it's fine to call in direct position (i.e. on boards where either you totally whiff and your range is basically overcards or the nuts...) however even with A-High on a dry board you should still be considering raising, especially if you can buy position. It can actually work out in your favour (i.e. cheaper SD) quite often.

    2nd pair on a 3 suited flop I think is still a potential raise in direct position. If you blow out a low FD behind you that's amazing and calling there is pretty much awful and it's going to be rare you'll be able to continue in a 3-way pot.

    Deciding how to proceed from in these spots is mainly just a case of analysing your whole range. If you have enough "calling" hands then you can call, but most of the time calling polarizes your range and usually it's to the "weak"
