    The content is pretty good in my opinion but his low english skills are so annoying...
  • abcde23


    was not that good. 2nd hand was a bluffcatcher, 3rd hand might be as well. Well, u got a bluff against low kings, 77 and QQ-TT, and bluffcatcher against spade draws and 6es. But I guess u got some mindleak, u say u got implides with calling turn and say also that he got nut spade flushdraws in his range, so u got huge reverse implides with hitting your flush!

    I think his English is fine, merely heavily accented (Malaysian/Singaporean?).

    nice content, the pronounciation is a little bit annoying but theres nothing you can really do about that i guess. :D
    still espacially in the last hand against i win flips i would like to actually see your stats.
    the thing is if he thinks you float a lot even out of position then his range includes air hands.
    otherwise he has stuff like 6x or prob Ax spade draws when he checks back the flop but raises the turn imo plus sometimes 75, 68 and some sets of course...
    this is his range if he would bet his flushdraws close to 100% of the time.
    so a bluffshove on the river is +EV but if he can check back flush draws against you which he prob. can with only 47% cbet i think the river shove is marginal...

    #6 He's Singaporean.

    for moves like the last hand, I suggest that this move should only be used sparingly. Image awareness is extremely important and for that particular hand, I felt that I win Flips had not enough info to assume that I was getting out of line because I have not much history with him. But after that he kind of felt that I was always trying to attack him and commented on that in Stars when I played vs his other account.

    About checking behind flush draws - It's definitely out out of the question but I think it's definitely <20% of the time because people always want to balance their betting ranges with a draw (something with equity) so they will bet it most of the time in a headsup pot. In a multiway pot where fold equity is way lower, then it makes more sense to be checking back a lot of flushdraws and take the free card.
  • st1nson


    yep not an easy spot to evaluate.
    anyway i really liked your counting / discounting of hand-combos that villain is playing against our moves.
    should be done more often in videos in general!

    thus, nice content overall
  • ridersonthedonkey


    very good stuff! good explanations, good mixture of theory and practice like always in your videos!

  • Maniatrix


    I don't know if I agree with the assumption that thinking opponents vary bet sizes according to strength of hand. Except when they are in a hand against a fish.
  • ribpoker


    Nice vid! I learned that if you're preparing to multibarrell, you should build a big pot in order to maximize the fold equity at turn and/or river, thus starting to bet big already at the flop. Key is the small wtsd of your opponent because otherwise, Villain could also stick to a pot where he already invested so much money - but thats true for a complete different player type...

    27:03 (76s at the river): I think the bet size is perfect for a bluff but as played I think it's way too big. This is a fine bluff spot because you sense weakness in Villain's range - therefore you should bluff big and valuebet small to collect some crying calls. Only if ballancing plays a big role - which often is not the case - would I bet big with such a strong hand vs such a weak range. Additionally such a big bet feels quite awfull when you once in a while face a riverraise - given the possible flush and FH+ holdings.

    Yea, last hand is a really cool play. I supposed fold tern.
