This is going to be awesome
I love the contrast between you too and if the "arguements" throughout the series are as good as what's been shown here then DC has another massive winner on its hands.
Anyone else get the impression Mike's really enjoying watching Deathdonkey try and pulverize people? Espcially with 98 hand and with the QT hand. Kinda of like a dad who's not showing you he's proud you just smacked the hell out of the neighbourhood bully and has to chastise you for your aggression but deep down couldn't be enjoying it more
I love the "What If" discussion too. It's amazing how much you can out-level yourself in this game by over-thinking a lot.
Also awesome intro with mean sheep. This just NEEDED mentioning.
Keep it coming guys, fantastic
Very good video, I think the best I've seen from DD. My style is a lot closer to DD's than Mike's, although I agree with Mike's sentiments on the Q5 hand (and I would have been owned by CLD2468).
I think the golden piece of advice/experience in this video came Mike at the end of the video (perhaps someone has mentioned this before somewhere, but I have not heard it): A tilter is more likely to revert to what their most natural play is.
As it applies to me, my play loses a lot of balance when I am tilted and I tend to like a bad robot.
I thought the discussion on the QTo hand was really interesting in terms of the differenes in style between the two of u.
1) Let's say I play vs someone who never 3-bets pf from the BB OOP. Is it then sometimes correct to check back the flop? My thinking is that the BB is exploiting the 100% c-bet and by sometimes checking I deny him that.
2) Why is it so wrong to only XR stronger hands than Qx? I mean you can still balance with draws to make it difficult, no?
3) Mike, how would you describe DD in terms of style?
4) DD, how would you describe Mike in terms of style?
