    thx for another nice vid boomer

    as you mentioned the topic at the end of the vid:
    would it be possible that you do a vid of a detail (in depth) post- analysis of a session (or better a pile of sessions) to give us kind of a guide?

    thx, thomas

    I dont like the Call on the Turn with the OESD at all. The board is paired, we are not closing the Action, we just get 1:4 or 1:4,5 if golfdriver calls and as you said do not have big IOs (but RIOs) because we are OOP and as you said you are going to donk the River. The 5 is giving 65 a FH and TT is in Fleskys Range too. To me it is an easy easy Fold. It might be a Call, if the Boards wasn't paired.

    First I did like the tough fold with A3 due to the fact we are not closing the Action. BUT: You did mention the BDFD but forgot about the BDSD. This might turn it in to a Call. And: If golfdriver 3bets, which of course is not what we are looking for, we at least close the Action at the Turn if we do not have enough Outs. He doesnt look like a type of player who donkcalls the Flop and checkraise the turn. He might even not knowing checkraising at all.

    You said you didn't 3bet because you weren't sure to get HU. But where is the problem playing J8s 3handed? Is it the position? I think folding is fine but I am a bit ambivalent. I do like playing hands after I just won one, but I prefer position. As we saw huzaro went to SD with a pair of 7s against golfdriver he is kind of SD bound, but this was probably due to the fact that golfdriver was nearly all in. I am getting pretty SD-bound in such cases too.

    Hand 1:
    I don't really give Flesky 65, 95 or T5 in his iso-range even on the button so I don't think it's actually a big part of his range to boat up if we hit our straight. There just aren't that many combos of hands that he will boat up on us so I actually think this is ok, the only way we're dead is if he has one of the 7 combs of Boats/Quads already.

    Hand 2: It's very close, with both BD draws, I'd snap fold without them, this was close.

    Hand 3: Actually one thing I have considered since was cold-calling the raise. Position certainly plays a big part in it for me as I'm sure it does for you.

    Hand1: a)We are not HU.b)You forget about TT, 55 c)we still just dont have the odds, even if we have 8 clean outs
  • wuerstchenwilli


    even if we forget about 55, there are 10 kombos (7 + 3 times TT) that beat us if a T rivers. We "only" beat JJ-AA which are 24 Kombos. So we have to discount our 8 Outs by more than 10/34th.

    If we're giving him TT we have to give him A9 since they're pretty much the same hand so that's another 12 combos. A6 may also be a possibilty so another 6 there.

    55 I didn't take into account becasue it makes pretty much no sense and it certainly wouldn't change it into a fold.

    We're getting 8/43 which is 18.5% if the LP player doesn't 3-bet so this is actually very close if we're completely live.

    I think this hand is probably typical grey area, I may be being a little overoptimistic thinking there's overlay and implied odds but your arguement is also a tad on the negative side (10/34 is worst case scenario and only on a T) so overall I don't think it's something to get too worked up over
