    Nice video W34z3l! I really liked your thought process. Are you planning on making videos like that for higher stakes?
  • andi2k3


    Good video! Unfortunately the table sounds are pretty annoying to me ;)

    You didn't play the most interesting hand . The AA on 19:00.What would you do
    a)if he shoves if you cbet ?
    b)if he call and another spade come on turn ?
  • DrDunne


    good vid. just in case anyone is wondering about the bet options that he talks about at 10:10, you can actually alter it. go to menu --> options --> bet slider --> then about half way down that list you'll see an option: Bet Slider to work on: .... just click the bottom option, "raise to mode". and remember to click apply these settings to all tables. and that sorts it!

    Early in the video you open for 2x in the cut off with a marginal hand and then at @22.53 you 2x the button w/JJ, thoughts?
  • pleno1


    @27.42 you 2.5x button.

    feels like the overshove with 99 can never be the most optimal play. It doesn't matter if they are drawing and can potentially get there, if we give them bad odds and they incorrectly call and get there then we actually win in the long run :) they can also call v marginal hands on the turn or shove their draws. I actually think c/shove >> shove

    nice vid :)

    #2 I can certainly make vids for higher stakes but wanted to start by making videos for guys grinding the lowest limits.

    #3 Agree. Table sounds are annoying. They were not intentional and will be excluded from any further vids.

    #5 I'd usually cbet.

    Vs a raise I'd probably muck, in general 4nl players do not raise monotone boards light. Usually 2 pair+ while one-card FD's go into their flat-call category.

    On spade turn if villain calls I'd probably just check/fold and not be too unhappy about it.

    #6 Thanks DrDunne, I had that explained to me already - you are completely correct.

    #7#8 @22.53 I 3x the BTN with JJ. I don't recall ever min-raising in CO. Standard BTN sizing for me is 2.5x. Against regs in blinds I keep this sizing regardless of hand-strength. Vs fish I raise larger with value hands. Vs shortstacks I will min-raise BTN. Standard sizing in CO is 3x, and all the above adjustments apply in CO also.

    #9 The concept of negative freeroll only applies if villain's turn calling range is inelastic.

    I.e if villain will happily call a huge overbet turn shove with any gutshot(and he already showed a propensity to do this earlier in the session), then not only do you miss value by betting turn smaller but you also give yourself some reverse-implieds - seeing as you may pay villain off when he hits his draw.

    If you felt villains calling range would drastically tighten vs a large overbet then it won't be the most optimal play of course. Turn overbet shove is based on empirical evidence that the guy is a huge calling station. Vs a better opponent if a smaller value bet gets paid with a much higher frequency it will of course make you more long-run profit.

    Huge value-overbets are one of my favourite ways of increasing winrates at the lowest micro-stakes - you just need to make sure you select the right opponent.

    Looking back though, since it's multiway + I'm not 100% sure about the other guys calling tendencies I do prefer smaller bet to commit the 80/10 guy and maybe extract value from a slightly wider range of the other opponent.

    May I suggest not moving the mouse around as much when explaining something? A jerky mouse pointer is more distracting than helpful. :)
  • w34z3l


    #15 Usually only an issue in live play vids, and I don't make very many of them. In non-live vids I remove mouse pointer mainly.

    I use mouse pointer to gesture - sorry if you didn't like it.

    Great video man,I just wonder if it's correct for someone who plays these limits and is somehow new to the game to be opening this wide even on button as you did during the game,though it's very good to see you doing that so I can get more confident when thinking about doing that!

    Good video! :)

    Was nice watch! I have to implement this overbetting thing in my play, too. If the guys has gutshot or flush draw there are chance that he will call it. Have not done this yet..
