    jaja, der russische akzent :D
  • BogdanPS


    I don't speak German but I'm assuming you said that I have a Russian accent ;).

    I was actually born in Romania, lived there for 17 years and I now live in Canada (for the past 10 years).

    great video. can you tell me where you got that chart in ~50 minutes, with the effective stacks left if you bet half potsize, potsize, ect. in 3bet pots?
  • BogdanPS


    Hi Terminatorchief,

    I made that chart in powerpoint.

    Hi Bogdan

    In ~33 minute you calculate pot odds for initial 3bettor in ex.3 as 41/14 and in ex.4 as 46/19, shouldnt it be 37,5/14 and 42,5/19 respectively, or am I wrong? I think you added the initial raise to the 4 bet but it is in the 4bet already

    great video though
  • BogdanPS


    Yes you are right, I just noticed that.

    My apologies. It should read 37.5/14 = 2.68 (or 29.9%) and 42.5 / 19 = 2.24 (or 31%).

    Thank you for bringing that up.

    I assume then, your real name is Daniel Negreanu :DD

    Thank you for the video!

    to Kraese

    Your comment and judgment proves you've never heard the Russian language nor a Russian accent :)

    Das ist auf keinen Fall ein russischer Akzent :) Ich bin selbst Russe und erkenne es 100% :)

  • Adstriker87


    is there going to be a 3rd and 4th part?! i'd be interested in a vid about betsizing postflop.

  • BogdanPS



    I will try to finish the series in the future. I was asked to record a few live play videos (live commentary and after the fact commentary) as well as some coaching videos.

    Hey Bogdan, when will the third episode be released? I really enjoyed the first two ones!


    Not tha bad, just a small comment about the mathematical part in 4-bet pots. Whatch out at minute 28:17 when you calculate the pot odds for the initial raiser you write 41/14 or 2,92:1 (25.5%), I reckon that's something not working here: the initinal raise (or even better let's call him the 3-bettor) has to call for 19 BB and that's correct but the problem is that you count again the 3.5 BB (careful the total pot is 37.5 BB AND NOT 41!) so the correct pot odds are: 37.5/14 or 2.68:1 (27.2%). Subsequently all the calculations for pot odds for initial raiser should be revised and corrected. Please let me know if you don't agree.


    Minute 28:17 pot odds for initial raiser (better to call him 3-bettor) you write 41:14 or 2.92:1 (25.5%), I think that's sth not working. You count two times 3.5 BB of the initial raise so the correct pot odds for initial raiser are: 37.5:14 or 2.68:1(27,2%). Subsequently all the calculation for the othe examples about the pot odds for initial raiser


    Sorry for the last comment it was a misclick

    Hey Bogdan,

    During the first few minutes of this video, it sounds like you might be enjoying an off screen act of intimacy whilst you are talking.
