    Hey Jonathan, some q's from the Russian community if you dont mind:

    1) 31:00 J5 hand, you say few hands will call the river. But that's actually quite OK. First, we dont show our hand, second we get a call from something like 99 that dont give us credit for Jx and would rather try to checkdown. Not sure the opponent will check better hands. The only possibility is J6+ that hit the turn, but it's unlikely cause this way it means he checked flop with air. So I dont quite agree with check behind in this situation - we dont get enough from the better hands and also show him our trash we're stealing with.
    2) 16:00 why do we bet the turn with AQ if we're scared of c/r from draws? If they get in we fold anyway, and if they dont we might also have to fold. Keeping the pot smaller we can easily call blank rivers with our equity. But if we bet turn, his c/r will be a weak play mostly, and would mean he doesnt want to give away the pot knowing we had checked the flop, and it means there is a possibility for a value shove, esp. with foldequity. But ICM says it's bad to risk our stack here, and check behind looks more profitable.
