    @24:00 - i think you should be v-betting 99 on the river.
    he's not checking behind 2 pair, straights etc. on the turn. his hand looks just like the hand he ends up having. also i don't think he's bluffing that much on the river so i'd try to get some value from like 89, 79 etc.

    Dont think there are enough hands like he had in his range. If I'm betting on the river it's actually more likely as a bluff. Not only can he have just called better hands on the flop, he'd check behind some better hands on the turn. I'm checking a good portion of my range on the turn that isn't confidently betting for value so I could still have some decent hands making a river call with worse even less likely.

    I think you pretty much have to bet on the turn, people tend to check back for example TT/JJ all the way. If you have the read that he cb random Toppairs (for balancing purposes) as well you can plan on c/r the turn, but without the read you can expect him not to bet most of the time.

    Dunno how much your bluff:value ratio in 4 betting is here, but I would generally tend to 2x the 3bet there, you made nearly 2,5x.

    You seem to think about it and especially with your tight 3betting image atm that´s a supernice squeezespot.
    Especially considering that zyrak play 25/22 which means he will open utg at least 20% and Roy is playing 34/24 over the 7k hands you have, meaning is coldcall% is very likely to be ridiculously high.
    And ATo is a sweeet hand to do it as well.

    Why autofold J8o on button? (right table)

    to answer your question, sometimes when recording live videos I do things I otherwise wouldn't. Improves throughout the series. Usually would open J8.
