    Welcome Splitsuit!

    Great vid! Really liked your way of thinking about what an action accomplishes vs mindlessly "protecting" your hand.

    Awesome video, well done!
    One question: in the hand in which Hero as KK on the button, what are you usually going to make of villain's range if he check/raises the flop? Personally I wouldn't discount the possibility of him having 77/99 (a bit more often if he's a fish, but I guess a tag/reg could have this type of hand sometimes as well). Looking forward to your thoughts on this :)

    I even watched it w/o sound and enjoying the precise "explaining bubbles"

    Very very good job.

    Awesome. Im gonna follow u!
  • yomatiyo

    #32

    can u make a video like this for platinium or diamond were we also take in consideration balancing, percibed ranges and stats? that will be just AWESOME!
  • yomatiyo

    #33

    GTO or explotable gameplan... anytwo will be just crazy whit so much information xD
  • SplitSuit

    #34

    @Orodin: He could have 99/77, but then he could also have TT/JJ (assuming that he wouldn't 4bet them ofc). There are 6 total combos of 99/77 and 6 of TT and 6 more of JJ...so it becomes a combo game at that point.

    And thank you everyone for the kind words!
  • SplitSuit

    #35

    @yoma: I use way more of an exploitative strategy in general, so I wouldn't be of much use when it comes to GTO strategies. And I'll certainly consider some range/stats stuff going forward!

    I really liked this video format/editing, nh split. Question: what is your thought proccess against unknowns? I got a hand which I played recently: I have AKs in CO and face a utg raise from an unknown opponent, I 3bet and he flats, board comes Qxx and he donks, at this point I gave him a range of PPs possibly a second pair to the board, not much more because I haven't seen many players do this with TP or OP. I decided to come over the top with a raise as a bluff because I also had a backdoor flush, knowing that I might had to bluff again. He donks again in turn and river blank cards with me raising nice 2/3 pot sized bets, river all in. He called with TT so I was left wondering if I should have gave up in turn or something. Thoughts?
  • SplitSuit

    #37

    I don't love running expensive bluffs without some sort of info. Since you mentioned he was an unknown I would veer away from bluff raising the flop.
  • Stavrous

    #38

    looks like a bad river shove with AK in last hand. we almost never have a flush there with A and Q on a board. And i don't think that a lot of opponents would've folded a flush there. Isn't check/call better in that spot?
  • SplitSuit

    #39

    I don't disagree. I was just showing a hand where our hand class shifts from street to street. You could certainly make an argument that our hand is actually closer to SDV on the river, sure

    great format, love the basic principle, please make more <3
  • oblioo

    #41

    Just because villain calls with worse hands doesn't mean we can bet for value. i.e. 32:40, you say "villain probably won't call with AJ with no spade so we can't bet for value." But even if we KNOW that villain DOES call with AJ with no spade, we're still behind more than 50% of his calling range so we can't value bet.
  • SplitSuit

    #42

    Correct. I didn't mean to imply you can value bet simply because you beat 1 combo of his continuance range. You have to be ahead of a large chunk of his continuance range to justify making a value bet

    The reason I asked the question "can I get a hand like AxJx to call my bet?" is because if that hand won't continue, no worse hand realistically would.
