    I rly dont get why you bluffraise the turn so often when you supposed to not have a raising range at all in this spots.

    65s: You probably never raising 2p, sets when the flush completes on the turn. And some flushdraws raise the flop. So your valuerange is very thin. Even thin, you should not raise value hands on this turn.
    77: What valuehand would you ever raise on this turn? villains bluffingrange is huge. Villain probably goes for thin value on the river with hands like Ax also. So there is no benefit in raising the turn for value. Seems weird to have a bluffrange in a spot where u not raising for value.

    Maybe you are raising valuehands in these spots. even though I think its bad for your overall gameplan, but importantly your perceifed raisingrange on the turn does not include value.

    True story but it's hard to play back against the turn raise and most of the players won't. I guess it'll just be a problem when someone is going to adapt but until that happens I dont see any problem in his play.

    i dont like the 65 hands, most of the flushdraws on this flop have additional outs like pairs, overcards or straight draws. ithink you would raise combodraws most of the time. good players will bluff catch you too often

    Young buck you make good points, but if my opponent doesn't have a hand, what is he going to do? Shove air? I think it was Phil Ivey who said that "sometimes you pretty much know your opponents are exploiting you, but there is nothing you can do about it." I feel this is one of those situations. If my opponent is sitting on a weak hand, what options does he really have?

    Another way to look at it is that let's say I never have a value raising range on some of these boards (not true of course, but let's just say for arguments sake), even if that is the case, my opponent still needs to actually do something about it in order for my play to be bad. Often times people won't make certain bluffs because it seems to exploitable to them, but the only thing you should really worry about is how you think that specific opponent will perceive your play. If you think they will think what you are hoping they will think (mind bender haha), then that is a good thing regardless of whether your play is theoretically exploitable.

    Some serious wizardry going on in the KJ hand. I would probably never have come up with that move myself. Thanks for an interesting video! :)

    KJ hand; everything makes sense except this: villain thinks you have air when you ch/R K36r flop, right? (that's why he calls - he doesnt ever put you on a King). So why does he so clearly turn his hand into a bluff on the turn? Betting the river -in his shoes - makes sense, becuase when you ch/c turn you are saying you do have a hand so then he has to bluff. Thoughts? thanks.

    Great video - thank you!

    Hello Dusty,

    26:00 Yeah, such opponents often bet weak pairs and gutshots in such a manner. But how do we know if he improved? This will happen quite often. Besides, they bet small, and it's actually good for them, when we call their small donkbets.
    Of course, sometimes they bet pot or more on the river with a hit, but sometimes - just a third of the pot.
