    29:50 would you fold AQo?

    13:30 You mentioned the AJ hand could lead on the river for value and mentioned we can get picked off by mid pairs or weaker Aces. There's really only ATs that could raise utg, so if AQ/AK is potcontrolling we're going to valuetown ourselves more often than not. Bet against mid pairs seems fine, though our hand looks so much Ax I dunno how often we get paid. If betting, how much do you like?

    17:00 AQ. You mentioned the stack-a-donk play with your ch/R AI with tpgk on Turn. Can you just explain why you prefer it to check/call (in this particular spot). Thanks

    28:00 A7s vs KK. I think you misread action here. simpledude minR from utg and Ch@rge just flats (rather than open limping).

    Overall really nice vid, thanks. Looking forward to pt3.

    mad - id still call aqo, but fold ajs probably

    tim -

    13.30 - he rarely has AK/Q as he didnt bet turm ,and may have worse suited aces or pairs that look you up.
    17.00 - when he calls i believe he has something, but wont necessarliy bet the river if I ch/call here, or call 3 streets. ch/r often traps hands like 67, A7, A8/AT-J into calling and avoids seeing rivers where i might get bluffed/shut down.
