    Pretty big difference between your analyses in this video compared to the "coaching video" But overall i like this much more! Thanks
  • AaronLambert


    2nd time is a charm apparently! Glad you enjoyed it Jim

    Hi. I like it. But ...

    Why spend 10 minutes trying to guess what a 5BB shortstack might be shoving (last hand)?

    The T8 hand (19 min): Is it really that horrible to make a small raise when we hit top pair in position? We are most likely ahead, and the board is drawy. Would we be happy if we called and saw an A or a K peel off on the turn?

    You call raising here "Turning top pair into a Bluff". Well, you can label calling here "Slowplaing a weak top pair" None of the labels sound that good. Thus folding that T8 preflop is the real nut play.

  • AaronLambert



    bc he ended up folding and I think he should be calling

    I'm ok with it if we are raise folding here because I feel like you only get called by better hands here more often than not. Also, I don't look at this being a drawy board considering how tight our opponent is and where the board hit (not in his range).

    I'm ok with the fold pf here as well given our stacksize at this point and the fact we can't really play as much as I'd like too. Which I mentioned we should be folding pf here.

    Thanks for watching Johan!

    Omg, the first hand is awful...
  • AaronLambert


    @6 Poker is still profitable :)
  • jimpooo


    K8s hand, you say im not repping much, Dont you think we would play 33-77 or 89s this way? and this board should not hit villains opening range.
  • AaronLambert


    time in the video?
  • jimpooo


    11 min
  • AaronLambert


    we could have 33 77 here but it is such a small portion of your range it is hard to be super profitable with this type of raise... if he calls do you bet turn?
  • bashpepe89


    I like that video! can follow pretty much all of your explications and usually agree on what you're saying.
    only time I rly disagree is when hero raises against a blockbet on the river without any showdown value, just that hero's badsize is way too big imo, but still I'd expect this play to be +EV because blockbet looks rather weak and villain will fold against enough decently sized reraises there to make it a profitable play, close spot though.
  • AaronLambert


    @12 we can agree to disagree :) I just find people who put out blocker bets to be too stubborn to ever fold
  • AceBully


    Nice video! 27:21 Hero made a straight on the river with Qs3d on a board 5sQdAs 4d 2h i think on this spot he should shove because this kind of villain
    ( loose-passive) won't let go weak 2 pair like A2 or A3, he will fold Ax sometimes but we should really target the stronger part of his range ( the 2 pairs +).
  • jimpooo


    @ Aaron, if villains calls i would bet clubs, straightcards, hearts. and probably c/f river. Thoughts about that?
  • AaronLambert


    @14 actually agree here... I think this type of player fits that type of play very well!

    @15 good thought process for that particular hand given the way you selected to play it otf.

    Very, very good and useful video.

    About 08:07 - is it really better to go for a thin value instead of check-call all floats?
  • canidoloco


    about min 33:00 - with 22 -
    on the TURN, you say a 750 bet would be possible, that Vil has to pay for rivercard (protection), but if I had a holding I never would bet that little, thats like a gift for Vil with draw holding, I always would push here any Vil if he made that little bet, with all my draws+, because it smells that weak. i just would make that little bet for inducing action with premium holdings, with a normal holding I always would bet bigger for protection...what do you think about that?
    shocked about the bad players on the 22$...but very nice it a lot...and also should be rolemodel for other vid producer, that you include stats and response to them...
  • AaronLambert


    @17 I like check calling over value betting river. I think our opponent can have drawing hands here that he turns into a bluff and the running Aces really don't scare me.

    @18 Good point... I don't like to bet huge here so I think the two options are smaller bets (30-40%) or checking back. You turn 22 into a bluff when I think it is likely to be the best hand and I don't think you need to bet big in these situations to protect. I see no difference betting JTo in that situation large because if you get any action back you are usually toast, if that makes sense.

    Also, thanks for the kind words! Very flattering :)
