    3 of Spades definitely not a nut out. he is more likely to have made hand than flush draw. Nut flush draw he wants more customers, and not as many combo draws on this board. he could have 2 pair and flush draw, but most likely made hand. And we decide to gamble in rebuy period.

    40:30 in case he would have checkraised you - would you just call or reraise all inn?

    I have to agree with #7. If you would play like this in CG, it would be a very fishy play. I have no idea about PLO MTTs though.

    What kind of hands are you 3betting with? Why exactly do you play so passive preflop? After this vid, I feel your stats are like 40/10/0 (VPIP/PFA/3bet). Maybe, if you also play CG, you could explain more about the differences between PLO CG and MTT?

    #20. I am Just calling.

    #21 Tournaments are way different than CG, especially for PLO. Unlike cash games, where you push a lot of small edges, I will try to eliminate risk, to survive into later stages. One of the biggest mistakes players make is pushing small edges in tournaments during the early stages. The hand at Question was definitely odd. I put a blocker bet on river, maybe I could have taken a better line there.

    I also play PLO8, and with that game I play cash games, and tournaments. i play virtually opposite in cash as I do in tournaments.

    hi, i think you said a lot of very important thinks but you play too tight:
    42:30 limp UTG+1 and you checked QQKT on BB vs 1 player? why? why dont you build a pot with very very strong hand vs weak player?
    42:00 WHAT!?!? open limp with 478Qds ?? you said "i'm playing tight in early phase" what do you want to hit on the flop vs 3 or 5 players?
    31:15 why did you check on turn? dont you want to get value from openendstr8 draw? from AKxx ?

    i've not seen another parts yet, but i think you have a big big problem with geting a value from big hands in early phase
