    Really good explenation, but maybe you can say a bit more about your perceived range in the particular spots.
    You often represent a realy narrow range, and I my self fold much to often because I think, ok he doesen't rep much but what I should rep..-oh I waited to long- it would look strange to make a play here..I fold. Thank you. Looking forward for more

    Nice video!
  • YoungBuck311


    Really like your voice and teaching skills, but I highly disagree with the hands played. Think almost every hand shown was misplayed at atleast one street.
    Since Im only grinding nl200, I probably shouldnt critisize a successfull higher player, so Im looking forward to what the other guys say in the comments.

  • chenny8888


    @7: it helps if you give examples man. I personally thought the hands were played well but I'd much prefer hearing criticism than people that agree with me ;)

    dont like the 89 hand,
    i think you should bet the turn small and let him float agian with air /maginal draw and c/c river, if you think hes spewy enough like you imply on the flop.
    if you check the turn you can only c/c and your hand is face up like you mentioned or you c/r and only get aktion by better hands.

    all in all great video, you got me to think, so great work

    #17 - I feel in this spot his range is polarized between nuts and bluffs. If I raise, he will fold all his bluffs and call with the nuts. So I don't think raising accomplishes much here as calling loses less against the nuts and wins the same against bluffs.
  • Leatherass9


    #13 - I do agree that would be a good option as well. Thanks for your thoughts!
  • Leatherass9


    #4 - I will keep my perceived range in mind for the next series I make. Thanks for the input.

    great video! cant wait to see more :D

    You are saying that you can rep by checking back a hand as strong like a weaker TP.
    But imo you would perceive here easily every better Jx-hand and every TP on pseudo-Scarecard + on a board where your range also includes many draws (so that Villain has to call your 2ndBar. lighter...) -> hence imo you cannot rep rly many madehands by missing in this spot the 2ndBarell -> he likely thought the same way b/c of his River_Bluff3bet vs your raise there.

    Anyways, I lke as played your riverplay very much b/c of your thoughtprocess even though you cannot rep yourself very much^^

    btw., great Vid - thx:)

    But I for sure like your riverplay b/c of your stated

    Excellent video! Please keep making videos like that. Your NL videos are amongst the very best on this site.

    I kind of disagree with the turn raise with the 98o trips hand:

    It's not THAT unlikely that our opponent has us beat here at all! I mean he could have easily gone for a play like with hands like 66,9d6d,or just a better 9, for the same reason we did with ours. He easily could have one of those hands, really. So honestly, I would go for pot control here.

    It's true, that we most likely won't get any value by calling, but I'm SURE we won't by raising either. I'm abolutely not worried about draws, as I don't think he would give you the chance to fold out his equity.

    So, it's true, if we call we rep a monster --> SO villain (if he's not completely brain-dead what I don't think he is) should give up all of his air or EVEN checkback a better 9. If he bets however, we have to fold and we know we were beaten all the way and save us the money. However, we could still river an 8 and still stack his 96,66,A9.

    Yo except for that, I gotta say I am VERY MUCH enjoying watching your videos (especially part2). It feels like they're kind of what pokerstrategy was missing up until now! breathing fresh air after smoking a ton of cigarettes :)

    While I do think the decision is close, I had a very strong read on this opponent as someone who will quite often fight back on boards where his opponent is repping a very narrow range. Armed with that read, I felt it was a good spot to make the play that I made.
  • Leatherass9



    You make good points. I guess at the end of the day, we can never really know what our opponent thinks of us in that spot. I think that I can reasonably well represent the hand that I described, but maybe that was somewhat of a specific thought process I thought that particular opponent might have.

    In the A3s hand I guess you are depending on him to have a bluff here more than 50% of the time?
