Keep in mind though that these hands are a selection from my entire career, and not a sessions standard.



ok that explains a lot then. =)

Ok all your thinking process makes a lot of sense and I know you are making a lot of money at these stakes but still... I couldn't be happy with Q high there. Don't you think vilain has TP type hands, FDs in his range ?
I assume the fish thinking process is either " ok I have nothing I'm gonna bluff cheap " or " ok I like my hand, let's put some money in the pot " ?



He doesn't do this with top pair. I give all my reads at the start of the hand. He doesn't minraise the flop if he has something, so when he minraises I know he has no pair and no A high (which is top pair on the river). The only hand beating me is 5x that bluffed the flop and is now betting small because his pair is small or so, but I'm getting insane pot-odds so even if he plays 5x like this 100% of the time it's still a call.

I actually think one of the biggest obstacles for many players is to trust their reads in a way which enables them to make these "sick" plays like you do. It takes a lot of confidence.




this!

Depending on my present state of mind, I also of course fight with this topic.

Excellent video.

I have a question about something you said about the things that happened before you decided to limp AA UTG.

You said that you have overbet bluffed the river against a fish three times in a row because the situations were good for it. This blows my mind a bit.
I do overbet bluff fish occasionally, but I am very hesitant to do it twice in a row, let alone three times because I feel like they would rather burn money than not see my cards.

Would you mins expanding a bit about these spots? They don't have to be the exact three spots, of course . any kind of general respons about the subject will do.

Also, make more vids soon, please.

Example spot for good overbet bluff: you have a read that villain bets turn when checked to after calling a cbet if he has top pair or air. He only checks 2nd or 3rd pair type hands. When you cbet Axx he calls and checks back turn, you can overbet river.

I'd love your thoughts on this hand.

It was rush poker and I don't have many reads on the guy besides he's fishy..

You block some of the combos you're beating. He could also have 66 99 TT A6 A9 AT A5 AJ AQ AK etc. No way you're priced in to call there. Especially readless you can't make these calls. You need to be able to for example discount the 2 pair + hands from his range on the flop/turn because you know he raises those, and then know he won't be able to do this with A2o and/or have a betsize tell. If you had the best hand you just got super lucky.

What the heck is he doing on that river?
I mean what does he expect you to fold?

Doesn't matter, people are bad at this game.

"I'm repping an ace, I wouldn't check an ace!"
"I check I lose"
etc

Perhaps your next series could be called something like "Down with the Sickness" where you show sick hand after sick soul crushing hands like this.

I'm going to do a college dissertation on these hands. Thanks for the series Grindcore!

Look around in the iPoker regs threads on 2+2 in SSNL and MSNL.

Isn`t it a problem for you to play on a site without RSA-Tokens?

I do this soo often here, and I just call when the vast majority of their range is bluffs, and then lose to rivered 6 outer or 66.

Nice hand sir

Lets say you've got 2 very weak cards here, like 8t clubs. Again a good spot to call the flop and underbet the turn like the hand before?

Maybe an idea to do the same in your last episode of the thin red grind. But this time, also show some big laydowns, hands that you lost and hands where villain reads your soul. Thats way more interesting in my opinion bacause in this video it just looks like you always win a big pot if you handread your villain etc.

How can you be sure that overpairs are not in his range on the river? 65% VPIP agro fish will SP overpairs sometimes imo, but I think it's a very small portion of his range then he half pots river, to make a call plus +EV?

He was fastplaying things like top pair. These player types rarely slowplay. He also had a timing tell. Yeah he could have an overpair in theory, it's just very unlikely given my reads.
