    thx a lot.good video, nice hands examples good selected and explained spots. The only thing i miss would be HM stats on the villain but i assume their stealing ranges to be very wide in common

    KJs, Is not extremlyyyyy unbalanced the line u take on the turn? are u gonna ever ever ch/c whit QTs there if the K hits?.

    untill now I had loved all your videos.. the 3bet series is just AMAZING. And I like the check/raise expansin vid, but this one... I dont know, is honestly a litle bit basic.
    I mean, is good to see this simple plays that can be realy efective and profitabily, but the hands are just too simple... they never raise u, they never 3bet your 3bet, they never double flat u, u get never in funzy spots where u hit, I dont know.. two pair in turn and river and u bet and villans jam, or maybe u play some hand deep or something..
    U say "if the club came I can represent flushes", but... we only see simple hands, and I think we will like to see more tought hands, where we do realy have a hard decision. And also hands when we allready have a dinamic, and villans start to adapt.

    Just an opinion! I was hoping a lot from this video cause the title "3 ways...", and I am really sure that u can show us beter hands than the one that u chose!.

    omg... last hand is OMG =P

    I am sorry! I make my first coment in spanish =(

    I was asking about the first hand, why not ch/c turn? if u say his range is the same as preflop (50-60%), why not just ch/c the turn and potencionaly ch/c the river? he is not gonna bluff so often... or u belive there is not value in ch/c turn and letting him have the oportunity of hitting in river?.

    how would u play 88 in that spot? the same? or ch/c turn?.

    nice video Leatherass!!! just one thing - I'd like to hire what will you do in situations where your donk or xR is get raised?

    Hello Dusty,

    ty for the vid. The majority of strong regs whom I know claim that calling 22-66 isn't profitable on the blinds (esp. in SB) against competent opponents. In this video you prove the opposite, or is it rather not one of your standard preflop actions? It would be interesting to know whether it's profitable over your database.

    Thank you!

    Solid vid as usual - thx a lot^^

    Min. 23 - KJs:
    Idk, tbh a check on the turn does look here very weired and actually stronger than a bet b/c it is a card most ppl would perceive a good card to barell though with your airpart of your range.
    So I kinda dislike your turnplay tbh.

    Not mention that it is bad for your gameplan to check here when you wanna attack wide stealingranges postflop by X/Ring a lot - I mean, I guess you would like to continue bluffing on the King on the turn...

    nice vid in general but some tougher spots would be nice (e.g you get raised or unimproved Riverspots)
    (just btw. with only these 'basic' Spots, Diamond is a little bit overrated for this vid)

    I also have the same questions as #9.
    Lately a lot of players and also pokerstrategy-coaches say that they do not call 22-66 in the SB but you call these hands in the SB, why do you do so?
    Do you show a profit with these hands by moving postflop a lot?

    Last question :P
    You said you checkraise about 20% and donkbet a similar amount, do you have a check/calling range in these spots and how do you balance these ranges?

    thx a lot :)

    In minute 30:20 with KTs (s) he donks in Q96ss to (d) and says that in turn would not continue betting completes a diamond flush, when in the previous hand with T9s (s), in 673ss (c) says that if turn down another club he will bet trying to represent the flush

    why he says that in one hand and not in the other?
