    at 10:14 i think Hero haven't noticed that small blind is dead and that it's really a UTG minraise :D and was just clicking a raise button to steal blinds
  • VSBGimli


    Also could you explain a little more AK hand where Hero check raised. U say that he doesn't rep a much here with checkraise. If I take a standard UTG range pairs like JJ+, isn't it a possible line to checkraise with those? I would probably always bet to protect from the draw but if I take Hero's line with overpair (not AK), what is a higher stakes player puting me on here?
  • AaronLambert


    @5 good point I didn't think about that :)

    @6 I think our UTG with our stack is going to be much wider. If I was villain I would feel pretty confident with a Jack and I'd probably put it in with a flush draw.

    Also with an overpair for example QQ I would prefer throwing that in to my cbetting range because I don't want to get into the same trend of check raising big hands and always cbetting air. I think that happens to often and when you do cbet sometimes you need to have a hand!

    We are basically turning AK which is likely to be the best hand into a bluff and we are making it more expensive as a bluff (c/r to 6400 instead of cbetting 2400).

    at 7:13 with 87s on the Button, why not to shove? Because of the blinds and their stacks, 12BBs effective. Shove must be profitable and better then r/f imo
  • AaronLambert


    @10 I do prefer a shove since it does have great showdown value vs. calling ranges
