    Hey everyone!

    Enjoy the latest from Collin and please leave any questions you may have in the comments section below!

    what happened around min 28:00 ? you suggested a fold, but seems like hero shoved, at least his stack is about 30k lower in the next hand?
  • JustgAMblin


    prob a little editing mistake by Collin. ;) It seems he overshoved A5 and lost to an overcall of one player behind him.

    Pretty standard spots but well explained Collin. Alwas good to refresh some so called standard spots.
  • CollinMoshman


    #2 Taschendamenfalter: Yes, as JustgAMbling points out, I went too quickly through the resolution of that hand; Hero shoved and got called by one of the remaining players.

    #3 JustgAMblin: Thanks, and definitely more interesting spots to come in part 2.

    Min. 28:00 A5o from CO is a nash open shove even 15bb deep, especially facing the UTG all-in with a 3bb stack and very possibly worse hand.

    30.9%, 22+ A2s+ A3o+ K6s+ KTo+ Q8s+ QTo+ J8s+ JTo T8s+ 97s+ 87s 76s


    Nice vid!

    #5 Konnikickass:

    The short stack's shove wouldn't necessarily make me more inclined to shove, but you're right that we could have unexploitably openshoved the A5 here and Hero's iso-shove is definitely reasonable.

    Thanks for pointing that out, and glad you enjoyed the video!

    another nice video, i really appreciate the fact that you analyse spots where hero isn't involved, e.g. "if we would be first in here, i would open this range" or "if the button would not have overcallt, i would reshove hands like..." some coaches just snap click these hands away and i'm glad that you do the opposite :)

    one more thing, maybe i'm the only one who is concerned about it, but for me you make your decision about what to do in a spot sometimes to fast, where i would like to have some more time to think about it myself.
    like what would i have done.
    i have this impression especially at preflopspots, where we are in EP.
    so the hand pops up, we are in UTG+1 and your comment is something like: "easy spot to minraise", but i did not even have a second to think about my decision.

    i hope that was not to complicated and you get what i was trying to say

    #7 BubbleNedRum: Thanks, glad you enjoyed the video :) Your feedback I'd be happy to accommodate, but just to clarify, you'd like me to pause for a second or two when the hand pops up (particularly when we're EP)?

    Hi Collin, I've watched half a dozen or so of your videos recently - they're very good indeed. Excellent work!

    I have a comment here about your favoured play of donking the A-9 @ 16:55. It's not clear to me why you like this play. If you lead out about 2/3 pot you'll only get action from the UTG when he is trapping and has you crushed. The SB will only compete with a strong-ish draw in which case you'll end up all-in with him whatever you do, so he's essentially irrelevant.

    I much prefer checking as your hand is massively under-represented and actually there aren't that many bad turn cards (8 or 9 gives two pair or straight draw, heart gives nut flush draw - any card 10, J, Q or K is pretty much a blank). By checking you give the SB the opportunity to do something stupid (as indeed he does) and can very easily call a flop bet from the UTG.

    My preferred play would be to check/call the flop versus the UTG and then (probably) check/fold the turn if the UTG then shoves. If the UTG barrels the flop and turn then A-9 should be way behind his range. If he has something like K-K or random junk he'll check behind on the turn.

    It feels like there's more chance to misplay the hand if you lead out. If you check/call you don't miss value and it's much harder to make a mistake.
  • ByronJacobs


    Also, I don't like hero's flop fold as the UTG range for calling the SB shove is still very wide. I'd call and then (as above) probably fold to a UTG turn shove.
  • ByronJacobs


    #10 - sorry that should be BB shove.
  • BubbleNedRum


    #8 yeah exactly, i just want to have a chance to think about what would i have done in this particular spot, so that i can check my opinion with yours :)
  • CollinMoshman


    #9 ByronJacobs: Thanks, glad you're enjoying the vids :) At 16:55, I'm not sure I agree that a probable loose-passive player will only stick around when he has us crushed. I think he could call with a pretty wide range of draws and worse one-pair hands on a fairly coordinated flops like this. But you do make some good points and I agree that check/call definitely has pros too, such as keeping BB's range as wide as possible. Thanks for your comments and feedback.
