In episode 3 of Logic Knot Boomer defined the ranges you can defend with from the BB against a steal raise. In episode 4 he focuses on how to make decisions with certain parts of these ranges.

    Good Video again!
    I was trying to do some kind of an only 3betting strategy vs BU on my own but with some tighter ranges tho. Howeer Im gonna try out to tweak my ranges any further after seeing this Vid. It gave me again a few more things to think about!
    I think the last point is a major one that deserved some more attetion: If I get 3bet from teh BB when I raised from the BU; I might openraise a bit less which means it is easier to defend against the BU and imo the majority of players defends the BB passive so it might be more profitable again to 3bet from teh BB vs BU and maybe the CO.

    Curious about the Game Creation Video tho I also kind of not want it to be released :D

    Really good video, again :)
    I think it should be also an article or an adaptation to the strategy that shows that the ORC is not everything. In my opinion is the most common problem we have had (members of pokerstrategy), to realize that we underdefend and unbalance ranges in the blinds.

    Thanks for the vid.

    Maybe just to add: As an disadvantage of flatting 100% is, that you dont give ur opponent the chance of capping the action.

    PS. Im just about to watch the video and the section has finished with the disadvanteges of flatting 100%, so dunno if you have mentioned it later on in the vid.

    Flatting and attacking A or K high Boards: problem is, we mostly play WA/WB in these situations. Especially on Axx Boards. So how can justify our bluff with 98o?

    other aspects: U didn't mention unknown players. I think the best thing vs unknown is to play straight forward, means for Equity (SHC).

    I agree with flatting vs UTG and maybe/probably HJ. Vs Co and good players I like to vary between 3betting and flatting. I make myself a note whether I've shown down a strong or a deceptive hand and next time I just turn it around.

    Alltogether I make my decision a lot dependend on my oponent. What is his cbetT account, what is his WTSD account etc.? I think a fixed rule how to play vs Co is not dependend on my style, but on my oponents style.

    Good Vid again allthough I prefer Logic Knot 3. That was awesome!!!

    The correct answer to your original question is not to play WA/WB on A and K-High boards, especially not with Top Pair.

    I would say you're correct that if you do go WA/WB with a lot of hands here then you can't bluff a lot either, that's fine as long as you're consistant.

    Most of these "rules" for vs unknown players/players that seem Standard to you without any further reads. Vs someone you know you can react accordingly but until I know someone I'm happier playing my range that little bit weaker in the BB to maintain a bit of deception.
