    you called 3b w KKQs OOP 3-way
    is it a fold HU? is it a fold 3w if you don't have a significant edge?

    I think some kind of theoretical / hand-history video would fit better for this kind of subject, in zoom these spots go so really fast (and obviously you like to play IP and defend really tight OOP).

    Also adding 3rd zoom table makes things pretty hectic I think.

    I like the min-bet against 6bb stack :D

    (The pro with too much outs sound like Scott Seiver)

    Hi Skod!! Once again great video, even though I also think this is more of a replayer type of subject it would be better "suited" hihi. I like your new line of your hud totally useful. Some comments so here we go:

    table 1 (upperleft) 3:18: guy played it super passively but still your equity on the turn was 7% so yeah; your assessment of his hand was incorrect as well, you said "wow he called with a 9 and a 8 hi straight" but he had a 9, the same Q hi straight as you and the (intrinsic) 10 hi flush so...

    07:15 yes you said 5 tables of zoom : )

    11:25 table 2 (upperright) I am not a big fan of your play there somehow I also think the call on the flop was actually superstrong and any more betting into that pot was wasted money; if you would have gotten a fold, it would have been on the flop imo. Yes you have one blocker, but it still leaves 12/16 combos for a 89-nutstraight so does not have a huge impact; I also thought he awaited a non-paired turn.

    12:27 table 3 (bottom right): he had a flush, not a straight.

    13:57 table 3: luckily the river was not a 7 nor a J : )

    14:31 3bet IP + Cbet = win : ) : ) : )

    21:16 table 2 I do not understand your rivercall for showdownvalue which hand do you beat at this point?

    34:33 table 3: villain was the guy who didn't bet flopped top 3 pair with the flushdraw remember on table 1 so pretty weak tight was expecting the fold : )

    35:28 table 2: greek guy flopped 2nd nutstraight and OESFD and goes check check check : )

    42:28 I would never call because the only real missed draw donkbluff would be the missed heartflush of which you had already 3 in your starting hand which means villain also having 2 hearts becomes less likely meaning the relative number of valuebets in his range here go up.

    Hope you can comment Skod all the best!
