In June 2008, Patrik Antonius challenged the best online heads up NLHE players to play him on Full Tilt. Our very own KRANTZ stepped up to the plate. This video includes commentary from DCâ€™s elite: Krantz, Whitelime, Ansky and Flawless_Victory (and a very brief FoxwoodsFiend cameo). The content is a mix of entertaining off-topic discussions interspersed with some high stakes poker theory.
Two months. Two million. No problem. That's Team Israel's goal for the summer in Vegas. Watch Jay help hit it. This ongoing series is an in-depth look at his life during the shooting of whitelime, flawless_victory, Ansky and KRANTZ's forthcoming reality TV show (filming in Vegas this summer and airing on G4 in late August). Jay will play and analyze hands he's actually playing while on television, using an aggressive bankroll management strategy to climb from 5/10 and 10/20 back to the nosebleeds. Can he make it? We have faith. They don't call him pr1nnyraid for nothin'.

"What do you think of PA?"
Brian: "No comment. Same thing I think of Karma."
I'm still laughing.
Oh, and a comment on all the "feedback" on this video. I think when people don't know what to say or for some reason can't follow what is going on they revert to trivial and even petty observations and complaints. The saying "You can't see the forest for the trees" comes to mind.
mo srsly, when do we'll have the chance to see you and emil at nosebleeds again?
depends... when the games get good or i am rich enough to handle 2 million dollar downswings left and right again!
if we get 2m2mm season 2 i'm sure we will want to gamble a little bit and play some tough players though...
Very entertaining video.
At eleven minutes in (I'm not sure how to insert one of those cool dots on the time line yet.) There is a discussion of bet sizing on the turn, and if indeed checking is the right play. The board is 6 T Q J and hero holds K Q. There is 20.5K in the pot with 29.7 behind.
Jay says he's not crazy about jamming (the line he actually takes.) Flawless says something like if you bet half pot and he jams the EV between calling and folding will be close, so you've maneuvered yourself into a tricky spot.
I have a hard time wrapping my head around this hand. It seems to me like if the river is an offsuit 9 or A, putting a one card straight on board, you won't get paid by hands that are behind but would call a turn bet. And if the river is a club he'll have a pretty good bluffing opportunity. So I would bet here, but maybe that's too predictable or straightforward? And the option of betting half pot here, 15K, leaving yourself about 15 behind with a pot that will be 50 is a move that confuses me. Can you really make a bet that looks for all the world like you are pot committed and then fold? What hands would you do this with? Is there a way to balance this?
Really enjoyed this one.
It's not that the bet is predictable or straightforward, it's that all Patrik's hands that are worse than mine have a hard time calling a jam on the turn (since it is a crazy spot to bluff). We're saying that checking the turn might be best because of that but if checking isn't best then betting all-in isn't the best bet size. And Brian points out that betting smaller might not accomplish anything other than putting you in an EV neutral situation... so maybe checking really is best then.
I'd much rather hear this group of poker minds talk over each other (or whatever else the complaints were) then anyone else make a clearly thought out/spoken video. Pls have Ansky keep making vidz and ffs find a hot chick to give Flawless a massage. I would renew my membership just to hear him spew his thoughts on teh unlimited holdthems
Fun to watch, but painful to listen. Speak one at a time please, and give room to each other. I'm too old for all this smack...
E. Hmmmm. Actually I have to disagree with myself a bit. Some good stuff being said here, but still I'd appreciate it if you'd concentrate on the poker a bit more.
Theres a thousand videos that are straight up dry poker strategy. The point of this vid I think was to be entertaining, with some strat talk thrown in. Jay even picked a session he admits he did not play optimally and hates many of his plays now, but imo it is entertaining to hear random conversation + picking on Jay + some strat talk mixed in. And I still want to hear Brian's 90 second take on the NFL!
Hey Krantz, call-dance-creator, I d like you to explain why you jammed your set of 3s in the last hand. Concedering all the straight draws possible on the river.
I think, given the situation on the turn, my move would be a raise but the amount would be slightly higher around like 11500-12500 or even a bit over the pot facing all the straight and flush draws that he might complete on the river.
What do you think a bit later your session?
i dont know how important to you it is or if it even matters now, but I just thought i'd let you know.
theres a certain pokersavvy video where you specifically ask the editor to cut out an IM between you and your friend and judging on the content of the conversation I think it needs to be cut out too. well...he didnt cut it out so you might wanna contact someone about that. I dont wanna say which one it is for privacy sake.
