    Min 19:00, why u call preflop whit 22 in BW oop? how do u play that hand? I almost allways 3bet or fold, except against really bad player that I have reads, cause is just too thought to play 22 oop as a bluff, or getting value f we hit our set.
    What is your plan for calling preflop? ch/r a lot of boards?

    Min 38:00, why u are autofoling to a 2.5x 3bet from a poster whit A4s? u dont thin that u can profitabily call even oop whit your hand whit that good odds?.

    U have to put 6usd in 15.5usd, 6/21.5usd, that means 27% of the times you whould win the hand.

    U think it is just too close? I mean, we have postflop edge and a good hand against his QQ KK, and we can win agains Ak o AQ if noone hits.

    Or u think beeing oop and him not beeing fully stacked make this an std fold?.

    I just LOVE your videos... u are one of the most good teachers of this school.. and I love the notepad analizis.

    Thanks for the vid!

    23:51 KJs 3 combos, not 4, cos we've got one king on the board.

    and 24:29 QJs 4 combos, not 3, cos our Ts doesn't affect it.

    yomatiyo, 38:00: you must have missed a 4bet from SB in this spot
  • yomatiyo


    #8, no, he (mbml) was autofolding BEFORE the SB 4bets.. he has allready the button of "fold" clicked =P. That is way I say "autofold".

    #4: Villain doesn't seem to be overly aggro and seems straightforward. I can fight for the lower flops. Defending low PP OOP is also ok against villains who open wide on BU and don't barrel a lot, so your pair has good showdown value vs villain.

    #5: To defend such marginal hands, it's better to get a better grasp of your opponent's tendencies. It's not like AQ or TT where you can definitely play it profitably as long as villain has a certain 3bet%.

    "7 to win 12.85"

    "7 to win 7 + 12.85"
