    Raskolnikov is back discussing when we should give up in 3-bet pots. Please leave feedback in the comments section below. Enjoy!

    thank you very much, excellent analysis from both, also great to see analysis and then the stat to back it up.
    A world of information is in this video.

    What about check/raising the whole range (gutshots+,hands with backdoor equity...) on low and connected boards? Villain should bet close to always in this type of boards because we are giving up a lot, and with a check/raise we collect more money from the hands he missed.

    Great Video! I think a lot of your theories are applicable to single raised pots as well?
    But I still would like to see a video from you dealing with how to construct something like a gameplan (I know you hate this term) for betting.
    Or in simple words: Which lines make sense on which kinds of boards and with what hands in order to achieve what?

    Thanks a lot!
  • Chuckey


    thanks for the video. the combination of you two works very well.

    though i think you could let everyone talk until he finishes his statements. this way we get both perspectives clearly.

    Can you also make a video for riverblufs? I find it hard to pull the tricker when I have nothing.
  • sandercvo


    Your one of the best coaches btw:)
  • Qubie


    I'm a sng player, so not so much in my street, but great video. Still some interesting spots for me.

    When I saw your site and watched your introductory vid I just assumed you were a huge douche.

    Actually I slowly realised you are pretty solid and you have a really great way of dealing with students.

    Thx, nice vid.

    #5: The logic in your comment implies a VERY VERY dangerous trap:

    => Adjusting BEFOREHAND. You try to adjust because Villain "should" be doing something - in this case betting.

    I always remember myself cursing those "stupid fish" who should fold to all my "genius bluffs"
    (that was at Nl50 and me being breakeven... you figure out why ;) )


    Having that said, your idea is VERY GOOD. The fact that you try to think about different scenarios is good. But make sure you apply it at the right time vs the right opponent.

    In our case, that would be: We have nothing and check. And Villain bets. Let this happen 2-3 times and i will definitely start check-raising.

    If he has a "thief"-tendency in other spots as well, i might checkraise the second time.
  • Raskolnikov


    #6: Thx and noted. It's a very good idea and i love this topic actually.

    Would you like a video like "How to create a gameplan" ?

    Like always, i forward the info, but i'm not the only one deciding.
    (Patrick Leonard is the other person for English videos)

    #7: Haha, true. Skype had some slow "perceived" delay or something, so i think i was the only one interrupting. My fault in this case ;)

    Yoshiwa prepared very well for the vid, hence the good discussion.

    I can recommend this to everybody, whether for vid, a coachign or anything else.

    YOUR preparation is 50% of the success. I'm NOT exaggerating.
  • Raskolnikov


    #8: Noted.

    Until then:

    Pls go through my videos and look for somth with the topic "when to barrel or barreling turns" .

    Also, i have a video called the "Gekko Bluff" which covers a special bluff on the river.
    That is in German however.
  • Raskolnikov


    #9 and #10: Thx a lot!
  • Raskolnikov



    Thx, I appreciate your words.

    You're not the only one ;). Recently one of my biggest critics made what perhaps was the biggest compliment i got (after a year of trashing!!!).

    My main concern is to help you and others to become better (and more happy) poker players, since there are enough "nice" people out there...

    ...but these may not always improve your game.

    When you talk about the BIP "Bet in Position" do you mean the total value (i.e. including cbets in single raised pots) or filtered as "Bet in Position vs missed cbets"?

    P.S.: Great video as always!
  • Tim64


    So clear and logical. Why is it never this easy when I'm actually in a hand? :(
  • Raskolnikov


    #18: No, the second. It's "bet in position vs missed cbets"

    Its good that you ask, because some HEM stats changed / got better

    The bigger idea though is that you LOOK for those things when playing as well. Often you will not have a great sample to really judge from, so my goal is to open your eyes for those KEY MOMENTS.
    Once you do that, you then will be able to recall if he "always" bets if checked to in those situations.
