    3)qto hand when u 3barrel:

    Interestingly you played a "antes" table. What changes in your strategy for that?

    table 3 @ 24:00
    you say that there is no point in betting the river bec we dont get any better hands to fold. but as he checks turn mostly with kinda weak/medium hands having SD value our A high should not be good ever. so bec he almost never has a flush or FH here, isn´t that a perfect spot to overbet the river?

    is there some specific reason for you not to buy-in deep on table no.2 as you have an edge on everybody?
  • Yordi85


    That AK hand,
    What hands do you expect to get vallue from and what hands do you expect to fold on the flop?
    Or why do you cbet at all?
  • instaflip


    gameplan changes when getting deep - just a suggestion, but this could be a topic for your theory vid. sth like how to expand and construct your ranges when there is more money to win right away and when implieds (and reverse implieds) are so much higher. what ranges to 3bet from the blinds (vs. good players) as you get way more calls and 4bets from regs having position on you when deep. when to overbet (balanced) with much money behind and stuff like that.... would be really nice

    Whats your range for UTG open?
    Bottom left table I saw you folding A4s, A5s, KTs.. for me they are in my opening range and I am "aiming" for ~11-12% UTG as my "default" and thats fairly tight I think; so I was just wondering?!

    everyone is solid :D

    like the vid (as usual), but got some questions:

    table 1 at the beginning: you labled the korean guy as fish (green), not knowing why ("maybe i played him before"), the hud apears, you obv. didnt play him before (at least on this limit), why dont you unlabel him?

    around min 10 you're reflecting 'bout chasing sne. does that make any sense for people playing on higher limits like you? dont you miss lot of money on your reg. games by chasin' sne on lower limits?

    the 44-hand around min 29 (table 4): you overcall ip vs. a laggy guy in CO, inviting the blinds to overcall as well. you fold on a standard contibet on an ugly board (in the sandwich). would you have called the contibet heads-up vs. the laggy CO? gameplan on the turn (asuming you dont hit a 4 as happened in the vid)?

    and leave the theory-vid-stuff to others, you're the last man standing on live-play
  • barbeysize


    realy, wussup with KTs on UTG-MP around 35-40 min?
  • Pumper247


    33:45 QT what about an overbetshove with your assumptions that hes not folding?
  • Porter1000


    What`s PPT and what did you do with it to find out the correct oepning range? I would like to be able to do this for my games.
  • Porter1000


    Nice Vid by the way :)
  • Porter1000


    Ok, googled it. Thanks.
  • 1667Paranoid


    how much open% would you suggest from MP? does it differ a lot from UTG? regarding small pocketpairs, low suited connectors, suited aces.
  • 1667Paranoid


    i just found your comment on utg-ranges interesting, maybe im too late
