    #2 If the board runs out like this, I go for 3 streets vs this particular opponent because he will be calling down with Jhi / Qhi flushes (maybe also worser flushes)

    Keep up the questions/(constructive) feedback please :)

    Thanks for this video Gerv, really very nice analysis.

    in hand #2, no cbet on that flop? we are in position and the flop is good to represent the Ace. by checking and calling the turn, you don't know if villain is bluffing or value-betting with an Ace

    Thank you :)

    To answer your question we have to keep in mind that we are in a 3 bet pot situation with UTG raising. Since it is likely that he is not a very good player, I do not like repping an Ace with a hand like KK because we still beat QQ-22 or any 2 undercards.

    That said I also assume this player is not going to be supercrazy on the River as in continue his bluff. This might sound as if we don't know but I think EV wise we are not making a lot of money by betting on the Flop

    I always call the Turnbet since we basically don't know if he is bluffing or vbetting. Therefore we go back to why we checked back on the Flop -> letting worse hands bluff OR get value from worse on Turn+river that would have folded immediately

    If we had a hand like TT, I would be more inclined to bet the Flop since a hand like KJ still has equity vs us and we have no problems taking the pot down right there

    very interesting and useful vid Gerv)
    keep it up :)
    I also have a question about the #4 hand though, going for 3 streets with the K high flush seems ok vs fishy opponent but what about vs a regular one? we cant really bet three times and then fold vs a push on the river since we will be pretty much commited and it is unlikely that he will push with anything worse than Ah so what is the correct way to play it out then ? bet/fold flop , bet/fold turn check/fold river? - we are willing 2 streets of value after all with it in this case right?

    Hey sir, thanks for the comment & question

    I still think we have to bet three streets versus a regular, the River is a bet/call mostly because I do think he sometimes can think 3rd/4th nutflush is good here and do some random thing + the pot odds you get

    I think check/x river is bad because I dont think he will be betting Qhi.Jhi flush himself but is able to call it off
