    31:30: Why don't you cbet an that flop? You can represent the ace quite nicely, get Qs to fold and protect against more overcards and the flushdraw.
  • LgWz


    Very nice discussions, looking forward for the next one(s).
  • PokerNoob91


    very interesting one! more plz!
  • lessthanthreee


    @2 - I dont think this opponent ever folds Qx and he also might c/shove a lot of draws and we would have to cbet/fold 1/4 our remaining stack with the best hand some proportion of the time. we still have a lot of SD value so the plan is pot control rather than stacking off. another problem with betting is that all the hands i want to get value from (flush draws/overs) will very often just check/shove because they will have pair+combos and my stack size is perfect to check/shove against.

    Too bad I can barely hear lessonthree's voice :(

    30:10 on BL would you cbet AhQh with 3 players behind?
  • chenny8888


    @7: nope
  • Luupainaja


    Interesting video, got some new ideas. Thanks!
  • gewoonlars


    Great video

    Just one question: Wouldn't shoving be better with AK in the last minutes of the session..? He effectivly only has 11BB.

    Looking forward to more video's
  • lessthanthreee


    @10 - our effective stack is 1350 because that is how many chips we are shoving against all the players behind us (not just against the limper). so we are effectively shoving 17BBs. raise/call is definitely more profitable with this stack.
  • Leviatan


    About that AQ hand in the SB where the board came K49. would you consider to complete the sb due to the stack sizes? just to avoid that ugly spot where u kinda have to CBet but it will cost u too much if u get called?
  • lessthanthreee


    @12. which minute was that?
  • fembot26


    I'm amazed you have so few good regulars on your tables: on the $11 non-turbos I'm often seeing per table two or three (sometimes four!) regs with at least 7% ROI. What minimum ROI does an opponent have to have for you to colour-code him purple?
  • lessthanthreee


    @14. i think this was quite a good time. usually there are at least 2 regs playing.

    i code players purple (best regs) if they have a large sample (more than 5k games) with >5% roi on the limit.
  • stevegold87


    Hi guys, thank you for the good videos.


    1) 32:00: AQ hand : Why dont we check/fold here? When we cbet 360 we pretty much commit ourselves to a pot with no draws very wet as well (2 clubs, K high)

    I think #12 said that flatting was an option because of akward stack size, what do you think about that?

    2) Fish question : Why can't we consider flatting @11:40 and playing postflop? Doesn't AQo plays well postflop? Hit the A or Q and get it in? Depending on how tight he is I guess.
  • chenny8888


    1) nah i think not. when stacksizes are so shallow i really want to take advantage of my preflop equity advantage more. and if he gets there postflop against me so be it. i am bet/folding K9xcc because i think it will just show an instant profit. but also because we have Ac so we can 2nd barrel some turn cards.

    2) not closing the action, reverse implied odds with AQo. we're not ahead of his range also which isn't cool
  • Thiemo1981


    Another question to that AQo at minute 30 and on.
    Its 200 in the pot and you have 1360.
    If you devide those 200 into SB/BB you exactly have 10BB.
    I am often directly shoving such spots, because I dont want to play OOP vs such kind of guys not hitting the majority of boards.
    I cannot image a Range this shove should be bad against. He will fold a lot of the times, sometimes call a PP (which is worst case) or Broadways/whatever.
    Do you think raising instead of directly shoving creates more value vs weak A he folds to the shove?
    I was wondering why you two dont even consider this option.
  • lessthanthreee


    @18. a shove is +EV. but IMO, we lose value against a lot of hands that we dominate like KQ/QJ/Ax . these hands would not call a shove, but will stack off very light on flops and will just fold to a cbet when they miss. so a small value-raise pre-flop should produce a higher long term profit
  • Tim64


    15:00 re discussion of calling range facing 4.33 bb shove in bb. We need 37% eQ vs his range (i think) so can you explain how you work out your calling range - you said around 65%?

  • Tim64


    36:00 Nice explanation of why bet/shove turn would be good if we get called on flop.
