    Yaaay! Finally some HUSNG content! I think there is way to little strategy vids on this format on pokerstrategy.

    I did notice a few spots where you probably could have made better decisions.

    11:10 - limp 78o, flop 244, villain leads:

    I would be very inclined to contest this pot in some way. Villain had already lead the flop in a limped pot for a large sizig on a dryish board that doesn't really hit your perceived limping range (not sure if it was once or twice, but the AK2 board comes to mind). It is probably a mistake to just give up in this spot, even against a pot sized bet. This is a pretty good spot to lead into the limper as a bluff and it makes little sense to make this lead with value hands. So I think that villains range is going to be too full of sh*t to justify a fold and I'm pretty sure that raising small over his lead is going to have much better expectation than folding.

    I also think you need to open hands like 48o, T5o at shallower stack depths, especially vs someone who is playing less than 50% of his hands from the big blind.

    Thanks for a great video, and I hope to see more of this in the future! :)

    First of all, I agree in general with your comments. I would even go so far as to say I considered each of those plays during the video. However, I have some strong feelings about certain theoretical approaches to headsup that tend to slightly disagree with the pure math in some close spots versus weak players. (notice the many qualifiers to that statement ;)

    With that said, I may in the future write a long article or do a theory video describing and debating this topic.

    And finally, I just wanna restate that I don't disagree with you technically. And versus many opponents, I would choose to do exactly what you described with regards to raising mroe trash hands as well as attacking donks in limped pots.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Would be nice if you would make a video playing regs.

    Nice video. I would raise preflop 100% of the hands too. Would love to see more videos like this.

    ps: nice background :)

    Ohsovi- I will certainly do that in the future at different buyin levels. It's hard to find many real regs at lower stakes.

    RobN- thanks, more coming soon i hope!
