    pretty bad hand selection for the first few hands. But the last concept was deffo interesting and something i've noticed before but not rly exploited enough.

    @ the last concept. (3betting shallow)

    what do you think is the optimal 3betsize with exactly 20BB?

    - against fish you just do the half half play, and with your stronger holdings a little smaller 3bet size right? - no direct shove?

    - what do you recommend against Regs. or does it even matter against regs?
  • YourDoomPoker


    Thanks everyone.

    When I played 10-20 CAP on PS, my 3 bet sizing was $87 over a $40 open. It's a good size. The usual $100 or 5x is too big IMO.

    - against fish you just do the half half play, and with your stronger holdings a little smaller 3bet size right? - no direct shove?


    Vs regs I'd 3 bet small or just shove. You can try the half half if you like but vs a good reg it's the same as a shove.

    Thanks YourDoomPoker, good Vid.

    - vs Non-Regs.
    You think a Half-Half-Play 3Bet with "22" / "A6" is more effectiv like a direkt shove?

    Does your position matter?`ip or oop?

    with half half play you recommend a reraise to 9,5bb vs a 2bb openraise, right?

    I agree with #2:
    The first few hands have been imo way too basic for probably any diamond-member.
    But at least, now I know why you do not like
    the great the_Bud999 regards to your PTR-flame:)

    But I have found it very good that you have been referring to your previous vids whenever an interesting concept has come into your mind^^

    last hand (22) was also pretty interesting, especially your thoughts behind (trying to give your opponents always room to make a bigger mistake)

    the half half play was interessting and new to me. all other stuff was really basic and no diamond content
  • maxwi


    Great stuff. YourDoomPoker has a great way of explaining things.

    @ Padde - The half half is always better than a shove vs a fish with any hand you want to ship. Position doesn't matter much at all, since there is not much playability if they flat.

    9.5BB is a good amount vs a 20BB stack.

    @Iron - Haha, I have nothing against the bud, I just think he runs better than the average human over a large sample.

    Thanks for the good review maxwi :D Also, praios only hates most of the video instead of all of it! I must be improving!! :D (Just kidding) :D

    #12 hahaha <3

    what if we make the half half whit 22, but we are ip, and our oponent shoves in JT8s? we are folding right?
  • YourDoomPoker


    Interesting question yomatiyo,

    I can't say that that's ever happened to me before. It really depends on how I perceive my opponents range making a play like that. I can't say that I'd definitely call or fold in that spot.
