    3:30 Why do you discount some of the 33 combos?

    12:00 You'd give up on hearts river?

    25:20 Wouldnt it be better to ch/r turn a bit bigger to have a potsize shove on river?
    Also the Q river is kind of good, cause even if villain had A5 or A2 his two pair are no good.

    how is villains range in hand 1 capped? he overcalls with a fish left behind. even though he is sb, he will have have plenty of flush combos. depending on his tendencies post there might be more flushes than sets and its not even sure if he folds a sets.. that said. Ks and Js being out there has a decent blocking effekt

    JJs hand: i like the idea but i think calling turn jamming river reps stronger/makes more sense with your range. also, dont think ppl fold sets that often :S

    Ad7: disagree with river line because of his flop sizing - think you're perceived to be c/f'ing quite ofteen when u check this flop and i expect villain not to bet that big with air (that you are targeting river).

    JTs last hand: turn - speaking in relative terms Ax is the nuts in this spot. also, unless hes baddish, he shud know you bet your top range ott close to 100% given how often Qx weak Ax could cback the turn.
    river is actually interesting he ahs way more Ax than diamonds and hes perceived to be kinda strong; so maybe he thinks youre not bluffin this spot. that said i cant think of a value hand in your range c/r'ing this turn texture

    Ok, soem feedback at the 1st hand (JJ):

    no reason to discount 33 - its a spot where he rly can/should setime 100%...

    For the turnplay:
    It would be imo horrible for effectively 100BB-stacks and you would have ustan easy clear fold OTT.

    But being deep your play can be actually pretty nice vs. some ppl - only worry is thatyour image is like the opposite of a nit`s image...
    Otherwise it would be interesting w Js.
    Altirnetively I would even prefer to call turn - am rivers cause imo then you can rep more flsuhes...

    Hand 2 - KJs:
    np imo - nice riversizeing as well - alternatively its imo also a nice spot to overbet OTR...

    have looked a bit more over the vid and I like it so far very much - keep on^^

    I don't neccesarely agree regarding the 33 comment, I don't think it's terrible to fold there OOP, and I do think it should be at least somewhat discounted.
  • IronPumper


    would agree when there would be no fish involved (and Im already pretty nity with small pps and do not have them in my coldcall/ovecallranges where many ppl do have them), but with him being involved, it should be longterm +ev to setmine...

    Please, some more videos from Slam5
  • Shevtshenko


    There should be a way to increase the speed of the video. Normal speed, i can't watch more than 5 mins. Sorry, but the pace is just too slow.
