w34z3l reviews a typical situation BU vs BB. Unlike in most other videos the hand was only played on the virtual table: between him & Somnius. They both played their ranges, making the analysis more valuable for those who don't want to focus on single hands but really review their whole gameplan.

    good video

    love this idea

    Good video, nice new concept!

    I don't dislike Somnius flop strategy. He has a range disadvantage and is oop. So overfolding the flop seems the best option to me. I would have a raising range though. It would be nice to hear his thoughts about the hand as well.

    And I also liked your overbet on the turn.

    It is interesting but for me is confusing!

    nice..his 3bet range is too big..against a player like you ..i think he is at a disadvantage!

    Isn't it problematic to some of the switchplayers that they are showing their strategy/ranges/lines etc they take in certain spots? Aren't they giving lots of info away to their opponents or is it acceptable to them? Thanks for answering again

    w34z3l - Thanks for the video, great analysis, indeed you might be the better player these days...maybe :)

    Some comments:

    - We were not told the frequencies we would be facing and instead were asked to select our baseline strategies.

    Preflop - knowing this hand would be against you but not knowing your ranges, I simply assumed you would playing pretty aggressively vs 3bets and not folding any more than you should - so I employed a linear 3betting strategy. Something which I think is quite reasonable and is certainly quite standard to do.

    Flop - yup, no x/r range here - would be curious to see more about why you think it is optimal to have a raising range.

    Conclusion - your points about considering who had the greater EV in the hand are correct. Especially when we consider reciprocality as you alluded to - and compared all possible situations and then the reverse to get a proper determination of who 'won'. Something close to impossible if not very computationally tedious - thankfully - otherwise we would not be able to make money.

    Ultimately, you say it well and I agree with you, of course we cannot get a determination of who won, I think we both played the hand well, when they told me you are over-betting the turn I stuck my first in the air in your direction :D.

    But that was great to watch - I think even better would be you and I collaborating on a video some time to blend our ideas and discussion.

    your RFI range OTB is by no means standard imo. baffling to me that you'd want to open-fold J8o, for example. or have i missed something and BU RFI has tightened up a lot in recent years?

    nice video

    Nice video and great concept, please more from it! :)
    2 things which I would change:
    - using pokerranger instead of Equilab - the color for the diffrent groups of ranges is so neatly arranged and clear which makes it much easier to see the ranges and think into them
    - from the flop on, just use Frequencys and never range% from the preflop100%-Range - there is just no use for it if u know that on the turn u have a 12% callingrange and 3% raisingrange... just using the frequencys makes more sense imo
