    As a recent omaholic I find this video excellent. Play, voice, explanations, going into reasons, going into more situations than happen (like "if he raises here I'll have to..." etc). All around great job sir! And the blog is pretty awesome as well :)

    nice vid!

    in min13 BB vs BU w/AA64: what would you have done vs a big 3rd barrel? he shouldn't have that many bluffinghands and your turncall shows you agree that vs most midstakes regs that aren't overaggro we should fold the river?
  • kaiptn


    and if've got a question about the leads on paired boards 3ways: would you also lead most of the time for value with trips in that spot? because in a vacuum we obv would prefer to check when we actually hit trips to induce a cbet.
    should we continue to play exploitable by betting air and checking strong hands until the oponents start to notice and play back at us (by raising with air against our lead)?

    Thanks guys :)

    #3 - I agree that most regs aren't aggro enough at 2/4 to be 3 barreling that board. That being said, the villain in the hand is one of the biggest winners and definitely capable of betting the river with air so I would probably call again if he bet. Against most players I would fold.

    #4 - I would mix it up with betting some trips and checking some. It is somewhat exploitable since we're betting more air than made hands, and if our opponents start to notice then I would mix it up by betting all trips and less air, but for the most part and in a vacuum I think we should bet sometimes but also check it too. Depending on your opponents and how often they will cbet or play vs a lead basically.

    #5 - Sorry I meant to explain them. Top line is VPIP/PFR/3bet/Fold to 3bet/Hands

    2nd line is how often they open the pot from each position (UTG/MP/CO/BTN/SB)
