Sorry, I've had some personal issues and am pretty exhausted. As soon as I have a free day with a sharp mind I'll make the next episode (both if possible), probably somewhere coming week.

When you check behind the flop it doesn't look like you have AK or better, air, or a draw. It looks like you have:
-KQ through K2s(IP against a TAG it's tougher to get three streets of value with KQ, so it also becomes an option for a check, although not sure if everybody agrees with this)
-QQ-88
-A seven
-66(although you may bet his)
-A five
-AQ/AJ/AT(although you may bet AT more often)

QQ-88, 66, AQs-ATs, A7s, A5s, K2s+, Q7s, Q5s, J7s, J5s, T7s, T5s, 97s, 95s, 87s, 85s, 72s+, 65s, 52s+, AQo-ATo, A7o, A5o, K8o+, 87o, 76o, 65o

Now when you start betting this turn shouldn't it be not good for villain to check-call down, wouldn't that be the worst option? Maybe he should check-raise the turn and bet the river, or check-call the turn and check-raise the river, or bet the turn big and bet the river big? Thanks, Yojimgari

I think I said in the video that if villain had a made hand vs me in this spot he should not fold turn or river.

How we plays turn, river depends on how the btn constructs his c-bet range. Some players almost always a king with weak kicker. The fundamental problem on the btn is, "Where do we put all our air". 90% of all ssnl and most msnl regs start all their bluffs with a c-bet. That is really bad vs a good player.

Improva great video as always. I absolutely love how you break things down. It clicks with me very well and makes a lot of sense.

I'm not sure I completely follow why you'd check/fold to a Diamond river here but check/call a Club? Do we assume he'd cbet (rather then check behind) a Club draw on the flop if he had one?

Edit: Never mind! I posted a little too early. You explained the question above about 2 mins in the video after I paused it ... >.<

Improva is making episode 7, I'm making 8. I've already send mine to DC. I don't know exactly how much longer it'll be untill it's released. My guess is Improva is having some technical difficulties again.

Here's the calling range I assigned vilain, if we're the CBetter in that hand. I don't see why AK is a check call Frown.

If villain is passive and/or plays draws passive and does not use the fact that he can rep a lot and value hands by raising the turn I agree.

Note that villain will likely bet his callingrange when checked to as well (minus QQ JJ probably), but will now also bet some air on top of that (like the drawless versions of the suited hands on your range, or underpairs). Though one line is good, the other can be even better.

You also won't be able to get 3 streets out of QQ JJ, 2 max, and you get them as well if you check flop bet turn bet river, so you actually don't miss value at all against the part of his range that will check back flop but call a cbet.

Value Betting JJ here seems way way too thin to me. I'd much rather c/c than bet with pretty much any 1 pair hand.
