    K3dd on Jh4d3h , despite the hand getting into decent bluffing opportunities on the turn if we check-raise the flop and we make villain fold some high-equity hands on the flop, aren't there better hands to do it with in our range like Qd5d which doesnt suffer from loosing sdv and also we don't have that many value hands that want to check-raise the flop (J4s,J3s,maybe 43s if we have it - I assume we prefer to slowplay our sets because villains bluff cbetting frequency is high and we want him to improve)

    @1+3: Thanks for the nice words, very greatly appreciated!

    @2: It´s definitely close between x/c and x/r but I´d say our hand might gain more from raising than from calling, it´s kind of a semi-value-bet; additionally, we should definitely have a bunch of valuehands that we want to raise the flop with, 65hh, A2hh etc. are valuehands as well.

    Nice video.

    I think they're both very close to x/c and x/r. I tend to prefer both as a x/r, mainly from a x/r composition point of view. With the 67s hand, it's not like hero has any other 6x really. 67s is only 3 combos. I disagree that our x/r and x/c range get destroyed if we x/r some weak made combos like this. I think it makes both ranges stronger, just a tiny bit more complicated to break things up between both ranges (i.e. have some 67s x/r, at the expense of x/c something like a few more gutshots).

    Without some weak made hands in a x/r range villain will have more profitable floats to a flop x/r with hands that are ahead of our other x/r bluffs and have some ok equity against our made hands. In this case, something such as QTo.

    I also question if the Ace of hearts on the turn is actually better for villains range than heros? It looks scary sure, but at a closer look, does not the Ace of hearts takes out far more heart draws from heros range than villains range. Villain is likely floating with a tonne more non Ace high FD's, than hero will x/r with. Somethiing like an Ace of spades would be far better for hero I would think.
