    Nice video, thanks.
    10:00 AKs is more fold equity what we need in this spot? I mean, sometimes they can treat is a a minraise and fold some weaker hands we want to get in against

    Hello colin, nice vid. (as always)

    At minute 28:25 don´t you think if you just flat u´ll show a lot of strengh and the BB only will 3bet you with the top of his range? Don´t you think just call is better than fold or shove?

    Thanks in advance for your time!

    R/C KQo in HU for 25BB almost never good, resteal opponent's range will consist of Ax and PPs, broadways and SCs will often only calling

    #2 Pedro76pt: Against a more tight or passive big blind, yes flatting would be a much better option than shoving because he won't 3bet shove wide at all. A good/aggro player will shove wider than they would call a 3bet shove though, including hands like 55 to try to get HU with a lot of overlay. Thanks for your comments and glad you enjoyed the vid!

    #3 0ndrej12: It would be a very exploitive fold, which I would only make against a player I knew to be tight-passive. Against a reg or even an unknown, I think this is a pretty mandatory call.

    Hi Collin! Nice video, I enjoy it.
    I've question about situation in minute 20:53. You r sayin that U'd open shove KQo from SB. Don't U think that R/C option is more profitable? Because palyin' open shove U'd get called by tighter range wich includes more Ax. When U raise, BB can 3bet shove whit quite wide range giving U better equity.

    Why no 4 colour deck?

    At around the 9th minute you did a stop and go analysis. In my experience whenever people flop strong in that spot, they check jam instead of open shoving flop, so maybe we can also take out Kx hands from his range when doing the analysis, or do you think he is balanced enough?

    #7 Kptak5: Glad you enjoyed the vid! Generally I play shove/fold a lot more in SB because I'll be OOP post if he flats. I would definitely r/c it as final two HU because then I'm in position if he calls. But R/C is a good option here too.

    #8 Autheking: Good point, I'll switch that option for future videos, thanks.

    #1 Havlisak: Sorry I missed your question earlier! Yes with AKs we're happy to get the action, but with our full range we want to maximize fold equity. Since I don't want to openshove strong and MR hands at bottom of my range, I usually just MR my entire range.

    Hi Collin,
    I have been trying your minraise/call strategy with a shortstack instead of openshove; One situation that annoys me is when I get several callers. I play 10-30$ MTTs and it does happen with passive players around, especially if they have a large stack. Having one caller is ok, but multiway the pot is bigger and I feel like I've lost my fold equity compared to an openshove pre.
    Do you think it's a problem, and that one should better openshove with passive players left to act behind us?
    For now I'm minraising from BU or CO and openshoving from other positions.
  • CollinMoshman


    #12 Xmiammiamx: I think it's great that you've tried this out. Most likely you'll still prefer openshoving in certain spots, maybe for example when you have a low pocket pair with a 10bb stack and loose passive players left to act; and sometimes you'll prefer raising small, like at a more reg-filled table with a 5bb stack to increase your fold equity against less observant multitablers.

    Figure out what works for you and you'll be in good shape. Gl!

    do u think in most games on average, high or low stakes, people do not diviate from nash that much and thats the reason u use nash as a default for pushing and calling pushes?
