    Hi, thanks for the video I'd like to discuss some spots.

    I don't like the double barrel on 3b pot w. AJ against a fish after you call 3bet. ( villain is a mobile player they are atleast 95% fish.

    1) We often see fish slowplay overpairs
    2) I'm not sure if we can get him out of AQ, AK by doublebarreling (espec. on turn 3 which doesn't realy change anything)
    3) What do you realy rep there by betting twice? Most guys at nl10 don't vbet TT-JJ on the turn so basicaly you rep a ton of broadways and draws which would make me want to bluffcatch with AK, AQ at this stakes
    --------
    underrepping our hand on 16:30 with the QJ by checking back the turn. I strongly disagree with your line vs. a fish. I would definitely go for 3 streets of value any flush calls turn & river 1/2 pot bets. and most fish can't fold even top pair on turn.
    ------
    19:30 the line you took w. J9o vs a fish button limper is terrible. After villain checks twice back his range is mostly small pocketpair or ace high maybe K-high I don't see him folding anything expect K-high doesn't make a huge difference which sizing you use on the river. My line would be to donk the flop with our okay equity and barrel some overcard turn's sometimes hit and often win the pot straightaway. As played we should just give up the river.
    ----------
    26:20 QT 3rd pair+gutshot I think you are clearly overvaluing your equity vs. villains range on the turn. Espc. his big sizing indicates he is most likely strong here and decreases the probabability that he has a draw. Even though if we expect him to be betting wide w. both diamond and spadedraws we are still a huge underdog w. our hand. Against a smaller bet I would consider turning our hand into a bluff and bluffing the river. We have the best blockers to do that and a weak pair + draw hand which would be pretty optimal as a bluff here.

    I mean bluffraising the QT hand on the turn. (against a smaller betsize), true my experience ppl. tend to have big betsizing tells on microstakes and even on smallstakes which makes me want to fold the turn.

    Do you have the rights to use the picture of the Dark Confident by Ron Spears ?

    #7 red= player without a full stack-> weak player, probably a fish
    green= fish
    orange= reg
    i think that i havent used any other color in the video

    @8: we attribute the origin & advertise the game, so no harm done. Main point is of course the poker content of the video - enjoy that one,too!

    It'd be nice to see you playing NL25 on your regular room. It's always more useful to see how to play as a regular because we are most of the time regulars :)

    AJo hand at 7 min makes no sense at all, it is quite a significant mistake imo.

    You say you bet turn to fold out better hands, then check back A river because he can call AK/AQ on turn?? these can't both be true? Obviously on this brick turn you aren't folding out better hands and you know it :P

    The fish snaps you off on the flop pretty much as fast as humanly possible, this is also an important piece of information. The turn is a mega brick so there is no way you ever get better hands to fold here.

    Thx #13, #14

    AJo is clearly exploit of tendencies that i am used to from ftp, fish almost always cbet ops so i can put him under the pressure. The thing about timing is probably the key here why would i prefer chekc turn as well now. Btw the river was meant that there is no reason for another bet cause we might be crushed. Still i would take a note and move on.

    QJo i agree with you that vs callign station it is clear value bet, hovewer lately on rush i have been meeting lots of fit or fold players so i took the safer variant.

    J9o i dont liek donk here, our hand is trash here and we have lots of better hands for donks here. I would just c/f. And actualy river sizing makes differenc, but still i would prefer agressive play on turn.

    QT, dont have the equilab here atm to check that. I dont think that his sizing here is way to strong, it is 2/3 sizing which is pretty standard actualy. We dont know anything about that player and especialy nothing about his bet sizings. Still the line with turning the hand into the bluff is reasonable.

    Seems that the video is after all benefitial even for me, so thx guys for a feedback :)

    A few times you did a search on a player to see what games he was playing. What information did this give you and how would it adjust your play?

    Nice video!
  • confidant91

    #21

    #19 Basicly everybody who plays only 1 table is a weak player, all regs are masstabling, so i would start value beting lighter and i wont be bluffing that much. If he playes 2 and more tables or he blocks the ability to be find he is usually reg so i just start playing more balanced vs him.

    #20 Thx, always happy to see that somebody liked it :)
