@ baluga, and DC producers for these in general: could we get links to the forum threads in these? it would make it easy to go back and see if i was right. i remember this hand . would make it nice to let people see where people where.
I understand the crossing the bridge when we get there, but shouldn't we also be thinking about what our opponent will do on the next street? If we're villain, with our theoretical 88, would hero ever be bluffing/going for an even thinner value bet w/A7 on the turn when we check? I would think hero would bet everything better and check back everything worse. And how often would he then bet river with worse or as a bluff? Pretty much never I would think.
I love your thoughts on changing between valuebetting and bluffing. This is a situation I find myself often where initially I am value betting then realise (usually on the turn) that actually to continue then I need to be bluffing OTT and and OTR. It made sense to me but its the first time I have heard someone discuss value betting and bluffing (the same opponent) in the same hand.
A question on pre flop. you mentioned Hero should be calling TT-JJ here to keep in the fish, while I agree I'm interested to know at what point in starting hand strength you switch your strategy to 3betting to try and value bet the fish and bluff the reg? are you just doing this with a bluff heavy polarized range that it is still ahead of fishes range?
