    Barrelling frequencies are certainly opponent-dependent, e.g. in the HUC match where I've just got owned, prosvk was check/raising a ton, both at the flop and sometimes at the turn. I wasn't sure where to draw the line between bluffcatchers and total junk.

    A thought-provoking video. "Like"!
    Sorry if these sound like idiot questions but:
    # how do you assess what sort of opponent you are facing?
    # how do you assess if an opponent is "betting too much/too little"; "calling too much/too little"; "folding too much/too little"?
    Where are the borders/guidelines for these assessments? I am thinking of restarting poker and these are issues I never quite sorted out when playing HUSNGs previously.

    #1 Coky2602: No problem, glad you enjoyed it!

    #2 Mellab1985: Thanks!

    #3 Vaarg: Sure, glad you liked the video :)

    #4 StuUngar01: Very welcome, thanks for posting.

    #5 Tonypmm: Definitely opponent-dependent. Just making the point that double and triple-barrelling can be very effective heads-up, we want to apply a lot of pressure.

    #6 Ci4p3k: Thanks!

    #7 Glopslart: Based on how loose or tight he's playing, passive vs aggressive, etc. If you have more hands, you can use stats too instead of just manual observation.

    It's difficult to give an exact answer to your remaining questions, but just think about it in just think of it as a comparison to what you'd expect to see. For example, if you're minraising your button and your opponent folds the first three times, he's likely playing too tight.

    Hope that helps.

    #8 Nxonxo: Glad you enjoyed :)
