    At the beginning of the Video somewhere around 9:00 you have Aces and get called in the Big Blind. The flop is AKJ with two hearts and you decide to check back.

    My thoughts on this is that against a good player he will be aware that you have somekind of a hand because if you had nothing you would bet, thus from a good player you wont get much action no matter how you play unless he has a strong hand.

    Against a bad player you will get calls from hands like KJxx or weak draws if you bet so I dont see much reason to check against such a player either.

    Furthermore observant opponents will notice that you check good hands back on that flop and you wont get much credit if you bet with your bluffs, I mean thats probally not that important because in tournaments many players are just so bad that balancing your game isnt as important but its still another drawback of checking back for me.

    And last but not least you give a free card to a draw or even worse might ruin the action for yourself if he has Jacks or AK and a heart hits on the turn.

    The opponent at 9 mins in was not going to go bust with anything less than Q10. he wouldnt put all his money in with AK or KJ, or even JJ.

    I dont continuation bet every flop either, so I dont mind checking back a wide range of hands. I guess that would be balancing my checkback range.

    In this hand he probably had 10 high or something of the sort, but he took a stab at the pot because he thought I had nothing.

    The value I lose by giving him a free draw is better than raising turn, and then having to call off every time he has Q10.

    Good vid, but "put the pressure on" should be repeated not so constantly :)
