I can definitely see arguments for raising or folding, I hate hate hate calling 3 with AQo there, you're hand / range is close to face up and you never give yourself the chance to drive CO out for 2 more bets. Some players will fold there for 2 more and getting that dead money in the pot would be huge. Given the CO opened, I would cap if the button 3 bet, but if the button 3 bet an EP raiser I'd fold.
This was awhile ago but off the top of my head there are 24 combos of JJ-AA , 12 combos of AT, and 3 combos each of KTs, QTs, JTs, so unless he 3 bet us with KTo there are more pairs.
Ariels calculating the number of low pairs as he would have capped pre-flop with JJ and higher still if you take 55 to 1010 there are more pairs if we are only taking suited Ts above a J (makes sense as we are under the gun). I think he probably got some of the numbers wrong in the vid (easy enough to do, it sounds like you try to correct him at one point) but got the overall answer right. Cheers
Just watched the video and thought there were several situations where you passed up favorable pot odds situations. The most notorious one was then you had 63o in the BB against a 43 VPIP SB open raiser. I think that it an obvious call getting 3-1 direct in position with implied odds. Also, the player went to SD less than 40% so you have future bluff equity.
Additionally, I know that Bluffman is a good player, but giving him a walk with some of the hands you did seems wrong, particularly since he seemed to be playing rather tight this session. Tightening up against him out of respect also allows him to narrow your range and play more optimally against you.
Do these thoughts seem ridiculous to you?
