    Nice topic and nice vid^^

    @hand 1 (min. 5 - AA):
    What if the BTN would have stabbed, but the SB would have folded?
    Would you then have considered to rather only C/C AA b/c vs. 1 player there is
    - less protection required
    - less deadmoney in the pot from which a C/R is benefiting
    Seems exspeciallylike a solid option when the BTN is aggresive on later streets...

    do you play hudless or why don`t you include it into the replayer?

    Why is Villain Barrel the River? What do you fold what is beating him - I think nothing, or!?
    You doent fold Tx, obv not 8x. Maybe he was thinking you fold 99,77 or something like that. But also this hands you would call I guess.

    What do you think about his Rivershove?!

    #3 - Yeah not folding much. I think he just stuck to his flop decision and was feeling stubborn.
  • Somnius


    #2 - I'd still probably checkraise, simply because there's a lot more value to be had and a lot of turn cards can complicate the board and action ranges.

    I play hudless on Zoom these days. But no I have stats for these players just don't think it's fair they have their stats shown on a video.

    Why not just cover up the names and show just stats?

    I mean in the second hand where you have KK, calling his river shove is pretty suicidal if he's super passive on turn and river and has a very narrow calling range pre, that is 44, 55 maybe even TT are in his calling range a lot. Maybe not so much 8x, because he is betting the turn too.

    Ofc you had said that this was the right opponent to do this against, so I assume he's often bluffing 3 streets if we show weakness.
