    Thanks for the vid. For spots like the first hand, what do you think about betting really small on river to get crying calls from hands that would check back/fold or to induce a shove? Also, if you think it's alright, what would be a good bet size (100ish?)?

    Hi,
    min 11:49 left Table
    what do you think about not CBetting his QQ(no club) on the drawy mono Flop.
    He has to be afraid you could bring him in ugly spots by c/r?
    For sure, this flop could hit your perceived range hard but isnt he loosing Value by not CBetting?!
    Or is it "standard" to Potcontrol and waitung for a save Turn in HU CG?
    Im playing HU SnGs. Sorry for my bad english

    I got a request... Could you please next time if you make a vid choose a more diffrent MousPointer from the one you use durning play... bec it makes it much more easy for me and other persons probably too, to follow you about wich table you are actually talking...
    With some recording software, you got the option to highlight your pointer...

    Thx for the vid! :-)

    min 32:10
    You call his halfPot Bet on the up right Table. nh!
    But what im interested because of that hand-do you really think you were beat at the left table vs the same Villain in the spot before where you had T9 when the River paired the K?
    Yeah, its a different spot because in the T9 hand you got 3Bet an he Barrels.
    But with A6o you 4Bet him on the Flop,
    and the board also ran out paired and some missed Draws, and hes BluffBetting the River. Dont know if I like his Bet. Would you play e.g. a Qx the same way?
    And because of this hand do you really think you were beat with T9 before? There were a few hands in his 3BettingRange you are in front of imo.

    Thank you for answering! Im a fish and im just asking ;D

    @jungleman:

    would really love a kind of theory video focusing on the "intricacies" of what people are doing, how they are thinking, what you infer from that/how you adjust, etc. because this is what in my opinion seperates the best (like you) from all the "regular" players/winners. You could do that by showing some handexamples and showing what you infered from them or just talking about what kind of trains of thoughts/mistakes/leaks you often see, where and how to find them etc. I know this is a lot of work, but it would be something completly new which i personally never found on any traning-site (maybe parts of it but not a whole video on it) and what would be the nuts-video especially from a guy that good!!!!!

    Hi jungle

    Haven't seen whole video, but got a remark about 86 hands where u get cr'ed. Isn't a river shove/raise better than just calling? We can easily rep a deuce (you said you weren't folding a pair on the flop so I assume a deuce counts aswell)
    Or are u afraid of getting hero called here a decent amount?

    Why isnt jungleman playing on PokerStars?
  • datsmahname

    #16

    You talk a lot about some mistakes being small or that the EV between two decisions being very close... how do you make these evaluations?

    It seems somewhat intuitive or based on a lot of simulation work. Is there something else?

    Basically, I'd like to be able to look at my own play and find the big mistakes to work on those, and being able to tell the difference in a better way would help.

    Hello jungleman! Good to have you with us in the team. Gonna post my comments in 2 parts since it's too long.

    Part #1
    T7 (~3:50) - Was kinda funny to see him betting the river, he pretty much turned his hand into bluff, no worse will Call anyways. For that given part I'd rather ship myself with T7 than Check/Call. He is more inclined to hero-call with 2pairs than ship himself, he wont have that many floats there anyways which he turnes into bluff. Us may hero-call all kind of pairs/2pairs/overpairs but rather are Checking behind. So for that given part of his range is going to Check behind - don't like the idea of Checking the river.

    KQ (~7:30) - on JAJ3, Do you think you mostly beat anyways all those hands which fold? I mean the fish ain't gonna fold any PP, most likely at least would Call the turn. Rather Check behind and you are ahead with your K high there, ain't ya?

    86o (~8:50) - on turn, but you gonna fold it to 2nd barrel. I mean if you have any weaker PP or even 6x there, you ain't gonna pay vs his turned J but you may still pay it on river.

    KdJd (~12:00) - don't like the Check/Raise vs the loose opponent. I mean he is never going to fold any pairs, any draws, any PPs, neither A high there. While we even don't have a backdoor FD I'd just fold the hand.

    2d4d (~14:00) - don't like the call vs 3bet, can't really hit much, neither the opponents stack ain't full, neither the opponent ain't able to fold any hands. :(

    * note taking * - don't you think note taking would be more useful to put them into HEM? Since if you overview your hands you can at least see the notes what you had, while if you put the notes into poker-room database you wont be able to take notes.

    Part #2

    A8o (~16:30) - on board 595, it's actually good board where we most likely even are ahead, what do you think about floating once and reevaluating it on turn? You said he is passive, so most likely he is going to give up on turn without having a hand, any Q-high/K-high etc type of hands.

    * Equity * - I like the explanations you give about equity, keep going such good stuff!

    ATo (~29:00) - on KQ9 when opponents being PFA checks behind, don't you think that betting the turn doesn't achieve much? You ain't gonna make any better hands to fold, nor you ain't making any pairs/PPs to fold. If he took a passive line then why not just Check it till river? Or what was the idea behind the bet on turn, value from some other GS type of draw?

    * 3-tabling * guess, would be better to keep 2 tables, at some spot it was kinda hard to follow every table & it action. But it was good that you could pause. :D

    * re-buy * prima network has an auto-rebuy option. :>

    55 (~40:45) - set on Td7d8d5d, what do you think about betting? We still get value from a lot of draws and obviously any kind of pairs.

    #27 +1! But well.. expectations were too high :D
  • junglemandan

    #32

    although there are lots of questions and I will answer some for some time:

    nigs1982, I actually think that is a viable option that I didnt think of... maybe you could bet a size with a high probability of getting called by a bluffcatcher or getting bluffraised by a bluffcatcher, I would bet a little bigger like something like 800

    falco35, I think with QQ it is almost always a bet-there is more value from weaker hands on flop and turn than on turn and river, and with QQ on this flop you generally will not get craised too often on this flop

    sniff, I will try to find what you are talking about in future videos to be produced (already made more than one without it unfortunately)

    falco35 again, basically the spots are very very different and while it is worth something that the hands happened at the same time, it varies between opponents and at the time but I think that the action of the hand and the texture of the board is more important in this case. For the T9 spot, it is a spot where the board quite strongly favors my range and it generally people will have few bluffs for that reason here. As for his play with 98s, I think calling the flop is questionable because he has so little equity in the hand but as played his river bet is probably fine since it is difficult for me to call with hands of similar value, which there is a decent chance I have. It makes sense to check turn with bad top pairs and maybe even really strong hands if I think he calls this light out of position or is drawing thin or dead.

    didnt watch the vid but veriz > Jungleman ^^
  • Falco35

    #34

    okay, thx!
    (T9)You also said it in the vid that the 9 on the Turn is a great Card for your Range, and thats why you dont think hes bluffing there to much.

    nice Hand Pokerstrategy! Great video!

    grrgrrbla, this seems like a good option for a series in the future

    ruleza can you give the time?

    veriz, reasoning for t7o seems reasonable, although i think he doesnt have too manz combos of 2 pairs here in general given its less likely he defends weak hands this early #(that connect with this flop) and the chance he raises flop with them when he has them

    kq he will fold similar hands, equity in hand, and better hands (such as TT etc), also note you will have few bluffs here

    86o, i think that in general people will bluff more rarely if they check turn and bet river in this spot.In general (but not always) you want to include all your value betting hands in the range with your bluffing range in spots where you have a lot of bluffs such as this vs capable opponents, but this spot is ok to check in and is fine as played by villain imo. As for raising the river that is an interesting option that I kind of like, I suppose I just didnt think of it at the time or thought I would be repping too little (there are similar spots in smaller pots where people like to hero call also)

    KJ i agree is a bad cr vs this guy

    24dd, it may be better vs this guy because you can get away with bluffs you really shouldnt be, also he made the 3bet quite small

    probably actually, I will try this...

    Hey there, Daniel.

    Here are some questions from russian community:

    38th min, 3rd table; Hand Тh8h:
    Why exactly check/call, not check/raise? On what range you put your opponent?

    Appriciate any assistance

  • McBurak

    #39

    hi, i havent finished the whole video, but one thing comes to my mind: in minutes 10-11, wouldnt it be great to turn your 86 into a bluff? I mean, you're almost never good here (sometimes splitting with like Q6), you have a strong timing read that he should have a jack in this spot - why not try to move him off it? You might represent a 2 very well, also some slowplayed sets/tpgk. I don't think he can be calling our raise with his J (or even a weak king he might play this way), just make sure you make it big enough not to prize him in - i would even shove, mb it's an overbet, but overbets are usually great way to bluff rather straightforward villians.

    Anyway, gj and im gonna watch the rest now :)

    #41

    veriz, with A8o him being passive helps the case for calling but if he is too tight with his cbets it's likely just a c/f

    with the AT hand, he folds hands with similar equity (ax) and some hands that have you beat, in addition to folding river with many hands that have you beat

    with a set we will rarely get many calls from worse (not enough at least), but there is some many to be gained if the board pairs on the river
  • junglemandan

    #42

    inspire, mostly just mixing it up on the flop--i just think he will likely think I do not c/c many flushdraws on the flop

    Hi jungleman!glad to see you making video for poker strategy.
    Whacking this video i noted that you are only calling in BB with hands like KQo,KJs,QJs etc, so why is that? wouldn't those hands be a 3B ? And if those hands are not good to 3B with ,are there any exception when we should 3B with those hands, and against which type of opponents ??

    If you can make a video vs a player like isildur and show us your calling range against his over betting and shoving on the turn in 3 bets pots.
