    5'45 Upper Left: not sure if I like the raise with KQs after 2 limpers. I wouldn't expect much FE and you create a big pot with a half-decent hand.

    Isn't a limp an alternative?

    Hi 48:55 on table 3, why don't u reshove preflop ?
    The bubble factor is quiet high here, I think the ur FE is enough high to justify a 3bet allin. Don't u think ?

    @Shakin65: I think limp is an option but with a hand that flops as well as KQs I prefer the raise. It does put you in some sticky spots, however villains will generally be limp calling with a lot of dominated holdings (QJ/JT/T9/KJ/KT/K9, etc).

    @Belgianbeer: I am not in love with any option, flatting just seems the best worst option. I don't recall the game dynamics exactly but I think he was a bit of a spastic player so I can't be assured he will fold a hand like low pocket pairs or AK which he certainly should here. If it was a regular opponent I played with often I certainly would because I know he would be familiar with how severe the bubble factor is in this situation.

    @Niker19: Noted!

    cool video i like how you bring things together.
    Here some thoughts for your next ones if you want to.
    How about a vid with the comparison of FR and 6-max bubbels in icm and ingame terms. I interested to in raise/calling at bubbles and the risk aversion for the one who have to call. I think there certain spots who were quite different from fr to 6max.
    The other thing im interested in the hu things you mention. How do you abuse these guys and when you better don´t do it.
