    of course SH and FR are similar, but i think FR and FR are more similar :D

    things like bubble play is quite a bit different with 3 players instead of 4 i guess.

    Thanks for the interesting video, Faarcyde. Keep up the good work!

    It would be really cool, if you make a video on the $60s regular speed STTs on Stars. Just an idea :)

    That's another good video of yours. Thanks! There were interesting spots as well!

    8:40- it looks really thin to me :) This is guy is passive as well, the board hits his range, we only beat a bluff. I think I'm gonna have a really hard time calling there.

    19:50, this board really does smack his range. Would you check behind A highs and 9x as you mentioned? It's basically the same thing imo, we have showdown value and he probably re-steals most of his Ax type of hands. Would you call any turn vs this guy with 9x or Ax once we check behind? Which ones if yes.

    24:40 min raise with KJ bvb on table 3? I guess you just mistyped it something. I much rather go for like 250. And then on the 28:25 with TT you say you min raise to trap this guy, only that now we are a bit shorter and on the bubble. So you do basically raise 2x on the t100 lvl bvb?

    31:39 raise/call bubble with 77 for 20bb as a midstack. I understand your reasoning, but I think this is a bit too off. He definitely has a wide re-stealing range, which after seeing A4o, I assume is any ace, any pair, most broadway, some mid-high suited connectors. We don't do good enough to r/c vs those either given ICM here.

    P.S. the invisible trash talk in the chat box + thanksgiving explanation was just hilarious:P Not to mention "mom, if you are watching, it's not true " ROFL hahahahaa !

    good vid as always, seeing SH is good for FR-only players, pls keep SH

    @Gavron23: Don't see many Qx in his range unless it is Qxcx, a lot of missed draws, can't really have two pair or flush.

    looks like standar play everything to me....
  • Gavron23


    The hand is A9 on the bottom left on 8:40 min - sorry for the confusion.
    you were explaining your thought process for calling on the bottom right, but it the call with A9o seems much more tough/thin, at least to me :)

    @Martiangoblin: Thanks buddy, means a lot.

    @ VeeRtje: Sorry, I can't find it. I got it at Sort by popularity, should be somewhere..

    @Gerovit: Yeah, I am a little rusty on my push/fold ICM for 6m and FR :-)

    @my49cents: I have to disagree. Even if someone doesn't play one or the other they can still learn something from the other game. They are reasonable similar.

    @Gavron23: I'm not really sure what hand you are talking about, can you be more specific?
  • Gavron23


    8:50 Bottom left You were ready to fold, but said "With his bet size idk" and called. What swayed you to make the call, because to me it seemed like a value size 2/3 pot?
  • oblitron


    I have to agree with Gerovit, A6o seems too loose. Also see this video, which uses A6o as an example.
    Great video otherwise. :)
  • my49cents


    i dont like mixing FR and SH, cause most people just play one type, so half of the video is 'wasted'.
  • Gerovit


    A6o 14 bb-s shove from bu you call it unexploitative or close, seems too lose for me, what are you expect them to call with? (Nash is A90)

    "mom if you are watching it's not true" rofl
