    Is it hard for u to play with him? If you have more time do you go on this HU vs this reg in your daily session?

    it really wasn't be hard because hero is soooo lucky
    he always picked up a full house, two pairs, three of a kind ect
    lol)
    and it was a realy cool to chose only winning hands for review, looks like he won all of the pots during 80 minutes

    doubting - To answer your question, I certainly felt like I had an edge during the match and would be happy to play him in the future. It's also true that I ran well during this session, and I promise my next HU video (vs Internet) will be reviewing mostly hands that I lost :)

    8:30 89s. Your plan with this hand was to ch/R turn as a bluff (or semibluff) or lead riv if turn checked through. The reason we float flop is b/c we expect many turns to help us. This is one of the turns that helps us. I can see why we would ch/R the turn with s/th like 7 or any heart. I'm interested in why you ch/R 2nd pair here, though. I agree that we probably can get him off weak Kx by shoving riv but in general 2nd pair on dry flop seems too strong to turn into bluff. Could you elaborate? Is the idea to balance ch/R range with some (thin) value and some bluffs?

    Tim,

    Thanks for the question. I raised here for a few reasons:

    a) Turning my hand into a bluff vs 99-QQ here which he can still be betting for value.

    b) Protection/thin value vs. hands with a lot of equity, i.e. two overs and a flush draw.

    c) Turning my hand into a multi-street bluff vs. a weak Kx

    d) Protecting my range--if I were to just call the turn, my perceived range is capped around KJ, and villain could potentially overbet bluff the river and I'd have to fold 98 here, whereas on this wet of a board he will expect me to raise with sets and 2 pair.

    does that make sense?

    lol. Obviously calling turn is fine but I raised for the reasons stated above.

    Your reasoning makes sense. But I suppose, to put my question another way: what hands (if any) are you simply ch/c here on the turn? i.e do you have any purely bluffcatching range here? For example, what if you had K5s here? What about KTo? Because, if you think villain capable of overbet bluffing rivs vs apparently capped range, a pure induce with likes of KTo seems kind of sexy...

    Well first keep in mind that this is HU and so ranges are going to a) be opponent dependent, and b) possibly change over the course of the match. (I am generally not, btw, someone who is really into balance/GTO strategy when playing someone exploitable.)

    That said, in this spot my c/c range on the turn would probably be something like any Kx, two pair, 6x with spades, and maybe strong flush draws with SDV (i.e. ATss). Kx because I can bluffcatch the river more effectively (since I block more of villain's value hands), and two pair because I block more hands that I could potentially get value from by raising, so I'd rather let villain either keep bluffing or value bet with worse. 6x of spades and ATss because they definitely have enough equity to be calling there (especially since we have the best hand sometimes), and I would not want to get 3bet.

    In terms of getting to the river after check/calling the turn, I would generally be calling with all two pair, most if not all Kx (K2 for example might be close but vs. Pusheer I'd call), and folding the flush draws that miss unless I for some reason decide to raise with them as a bluff.
