    I am not a FL HU player, but i really like style of this coaching video and i think its a top notch material. So even tho i dont play this game i watched both videos and think they are great.

    Very good video. Very detailed explanations about the lines played and alternative (maybe better) ones.

    I liked it a lot. Keep on the good work :)

    Thank you for another great video!

    С учетом практически полного отсутствия материалов по HU лимит покеру, этот мужик вообще однозначно must see. Да и вообще учит не только хедсапу, но и просто грамотному анализу и рассуждению.

    #1 me too :) very nice vid, thanks!

    Nice vid, clear and plain thoughts.
    Min 40: J10s hand: In spite of this flop I would play a continuation bet intuitionally here on the flop and turn (with the q as scare card and the gained gs) with this hand. Our hand has no showdown value. An A-high hand could be played as shown but shouldn't be the standard line.
    Look forward to see more vids like this one.

    #3 – Probably right, but it feels close. 3 barrelling gets raised somewhere so often and there isn’t so much fold equity on the tight board. Also semi-bluff plays don’t feel profitable as the pot gets so big he calls down with anything. I tend to take the low variance route in these ugly situations but I wouldn’t argue with the 3-barrel.
  • Thexe


    I think in many cases like this you would invest the same money when you make 1-2 continuation bets on the flop

    can you please delete my comments 6-8. It seems I cannot insert the full feedback (character limitation?)!?

    With a check on the flop OOP your pockets cards are face up and your opponent can play "perfectly" against your range you are representing after the 3Bet preflop.
    It would be indeed a uncomfortable situation after a turnraise (-> read 2+5) but I don't expect that very often in that situation from this specific opponent after showing this strenght pf, on the flop and turn. On the river you could still c/f UI on that board if you think your opponent cannot fold on a third river barrel only folding draws (polarized range). I think players like Kobeyard would play preflop as played but betting flop and turn instantly without being scared about the variance but more considering the metagame aspect. I'm interested in other opinions from other players too for the situation

    Very nice, well analyzed. Cold and refreshing mindset talk :)

    JTs ~40min - Why not check/raise turn? As you said you have very little history for a lines like 3bet pf and then check flop, so he can't know what you are playing this way. Check/raise turn is definitely outside FBS, so it's possible he insta folds, if not you still have 10 outs or at worst gutshot. How do you like such line?
