Here you are 4betting 99 out of the blinds versus button 3 bet and CO opener.

You are 135 BB deep and you argue that he will push 77 and 88 always. I think it's too thin because you don't take your time to study button 3bet range etc.

If he only 3 bets CO from like 7 percent of the time I think it's a fold. Do you agree on this?

Here you are calling two barrels with a Qs,3s on a 5,Ts,As,Th board BB vs. SB.

You don't mention any specific reads. Why are you calling?



Why wouldn't I? I explained why I am calling the turn. I might raise before I fold the turn...

You are 3betting 77 in SB vs. button and gets 4bet by BB.

You end up shoving. Is this your default play or do you have reads on the BB? I like to hear anyones thought on that.

In a vacuum I am folding. Like if I just sat down with a bunch of unknows and this happen. I am shutting down. Is this a leak?



I think it's close. If you are going to widen your shoving range beyond obvious value stuff at all, including 77 in that range seems mandatory. I wouldn't think of folding TT+, probably not 99 either. 88 and lower is where it gets tough. Folding here as a default vs the right pool of players is definitely fine.

Yeah I guess I just disagree on that one. I think it's one of the worst cards for villain to be bluff barreling and without a lot of leveling going on I would expect him to stop his bluff on the turn.

Love that you are doing realtime videos.

One more thing if I may. You make a few reference to game theory - saying game theory wise it's the button of his range etc.

I hear a lot of coaches refering to game theory wise and button and top of ranges ... Where can I pick up on that stuff. I really don't know what they / you are talking about?

Table 2 J9s.

When your plan is to bet bet shove, and you expect him to fold to a shove on a river a decent amount of time. I was just wondering why you bet just over 50% on flop, and just over 50% on turn. I understand it's easy to get the pot sized shove on the river. But if we expect him to call the flop/turn more, fold river, then should we be betting fairly big on flop/turn. Or does this reduce your FE on river?

Good explanation about the Q3s hand on table 6. As you explained it in thread, you would consider raising this turn. Isnt it better than flatting? We can rep a Tx a lot. Altought, now sure he will fold any Ax, probably just the "air" portion of his range.

I am a little "late" at watching this series but really liked it. I am more of a FR player, but got a lot from it. A lot of good explanations and never got bored in any of the episodes! Good job!

Would be great if the next video/series was you playing on or sweating/reviewing 6m NL on Bovada (previously Bodog) which now uses anonymous players. So only reads are notes you take during the session as well as session stats. I think it would be really interesting and a great 'switch up' from the norm. I'm a MSNL reg there (3/6-10/20 6m nl) and would love to be involved.

I don't understand the call pre... I think that is the worst possible option for us... I like fold>raise>call. And on the flop is your raise as a bluff or for value? Could you explain your thinking?
