Excellent video Bart ... just like the podcast, only better!

You also do a great job of keeping interest in the series ... I'm looking forward to 'Drunk Bart's hand analysis' ... it could be like the non-cartoon version of the Micros for the week! Smile

Dont you want to get heads-up or in pot with max 2 people with your aces ?
With 5 people in the pot, your equity goes way down.



My immediate value does indeed go down but I am more interested in what I like to call "future value". I think that it is more important to let in the dominated broadway hands and extract multiple streets of value from an inferior top pair. Also, preflop, I would rather have 40% equity in a pot of $175 rather than 85% equity in a pot of $75. I think that your argument holds more validity in a tournament where the immediate value of accumulating chips with less risk means so much more.

Why would Asian lady of made a preflop mistake if she had a 7?

Surely as she has a raise and 2 callers in-front of her and she has a suited connector they go way up in value. Even given her short-ish stack size.

I dont think it is a mistake for her to show up with a suited connector or A7s.

You also said that they are likely to be playing less than 20% of hands and mainly have pocket pairs and big suited cards. They will also show up with suited connectors a good % of the time. Making it a mistake for you to discount the 7x hands she has in her range.



I think it is very close but you're probably right, with the two callers in between she may correctly show up here with a 7. However, with our stack sizes and the propensity for her to shove overpairs "to protect" on the turn I am never folding.

I'd rather make the flop raise size about $150 or so. The main reason is because the guy is not full stacked so I want to leave as much money behind to make big "scary" bets to move him off the hand later on. We can keep firing the turn like you suggested and he'll lay down those marginal 1 pair hands on the turn or river anyway so I don't see a reason to risk a lot of money on the flop in case he has a big hand.

Bart touched on one of the keys to this hand; If the villain has a set/straight/two pair and leads out, and then gets raised...he is almost ALWAYS 3-betting the flop back. He isn't going to smooth call the raise OOP because a) he is so excited he hit his hand AND has gotten action he'll just get the money in and b) he's afraid to get outdrawn so he'll sacrifice value and instead get his chips in right away. If he just smooth calls the raise, that almost certainly means he has a marginal 1 pair type hand which we can frequently barrel him off later on. So by making a slightly smaller flop raise, we risk the minimum when we're up against a monster, and also allow us maximum stack leverage to put pressure on him when he has a marginal hand.

Great video, can't wait for next week.



I like your thought of raising smaller on the flop to keep more money behind in theory, however in practice I find that people feel more committed to staying in the pot once they make that flop call. By immediately raising a little bigger I feel that it is more intimidating as he knows that he most likely will have to play for all of his chips at some point during the hand. I can definitely see guys peeling the flops with 7s or 8s vs a $150 raise where $220 significantly increases the chance that the hand ends right here.

It makes sense to keep your bets small here because of her stack size and to keep her range wide, but do you think there is some merit to betting bigger on flop and trying to get most of the money in the turn? If someone has a hand like 88, 99, TT, there are going to be a lot of cards that might potentially kill our action on the turn or river.



Your thought definitely has merit but I would rather take the chance in betting smaller so that I can at least get a light flop call. Then they have chips in the pot and feel more committed on future streets. If I can bet $70 and get a call from 3s 5s or 6s, really I think the only bad cards for me on the turn are As and Ks. Then I can bet $100-$150, and suddenly my opponent feels compelled to call any river.

Bart said some of it would be, from Live at the Bike.
But yes ... its a bit more involved technically than just doing stuff in a hand replayer Poke Tongue

Actually, it is in the plans to have one or two episodes come from nights where I play on Live at the Bike.

Great video.
I am a live 5/10 player as well, but not in LA Smile.

In the first hand, the over limp with the 22, is interesting. If 22 is a limp, what hands would you be raising in that spot? Would you open raise 22?

Although I agree that raising in that spot purely to isolate is probably a mistake, we have other reasons to raise other than just purely for isolation. If the two shorter stacks were closer to the 50bb range would you then be leaning a bit more towards a raise?

I wonder how we could calculate the benefits of isolating and c-betting the flop versus the implied odds of hitting a set and winning a big pot.

What would you say your default VPiP PFR and 3B (i.e. when you first sit down in a game)?

Also, if you have an Android phone, you could use the application I'm working on to help you track hands. Although I don't have a feature built in yet to export the hands in a universal format you can record the basic action of the hands and view them in an HTML format. Plus a bunch of other stuff.
Check it out at
http://nuancesys.trickel.com

It's currently in beta and free, but it will cost money in the future.

Looking forward to the rest of the series.
