    Why you made the first video Silver if this one is basic?

  • EvGalois


    Hello! At 4.54 there is an error. I am telling that you are "last" to act from late position in the post draw round. What it should be is of course first to act; both when it comes to drawing/carding and acting(betting). This spot is tricky and depending on how many players and different player types there are in the pot it is not always certain that we make a reraise from here all the time when we are ahead pre draw. An example would be if we held AA or a medium 2 pair against and early raisor with 2 cold callers in between. In that case I am leaning towards a flat call most of the times.

    #4 - the article is silver, but the video is basic as part of a promotion of the 5CD content. There'll be one more video coming for basic, as well, but the articles will remain silver for the time being.

    Suggestion: maybe you should expand articles in videos with some of your thoghts about hand flow and etc... Because current video mostly dublicates relevant article.

    But nontheless vid is nice and it was pleasure to watch it! Thanks!

    very nice job EvGalois, but I have to ask when is next part coming out?
  • RocknRollAd


    Very nice!

    I like to know what you should do in unraised blind pots (in the game I play there is no small blind)
    with total craphands 3 flush lowcards etc. no pair, or with high cards. Do you defend the blind with those kind of hand and how many and which cards do you change then.

    Grtz. a beginner.
