On that 63s hand I think his calling range is pretty much inelastic so you could bluff much smaller with almost the same result. I dont think he's folding very often though once you check back the turn (and if he calls KQ he actually folds 0% of his range). Also I completely disagree when you say he is leading most of his strong hands on the river just because he cant have air so you're never herocalling here (I mean if he bets that river are you really calling with like A2o here? looks terrible), if he is sitting here with JJ or AJs its much better for him to check and let you v-bet thinly some random ace or sometimes just bluff.
The 5-bet shove with AQo is definitely really bad without some crazy dynamics. You have 28% equity vs JJ+,AK so you need him to 4-bet bluff a lot for that shove to be profitable. And let say he opens around 15% UTG he is going to have those 20% of the time. There is nothing wrong with 3-bet/folding AQo here, once you get 4-bet you definitely have to fold.
When you come here and play 4-tables hyper aggressively against regulars that dont know you, well, they're not going to war right away in my opinion, theyre just going to keep playing solid so it's very important for you not to spew off a lot "because of your image" when they are showing agression, they have it more often than not.
Also when you dont really know how often they 3-bet I think its best to play conservatively in the beginning and just fold close spots until you have a better idea of what theyre doing. The call with A2s was definitely terrible but the AQs call from UTG vs a BTN 3-bet is also very marginal, a lot of regs are just not 3-betting that much when they play tons of tables.
I see chipchuker advise 3-betting QJo or KTo close to 100% in the BB vs a BTN open, personnaly i mostly flat those and 3-bet more random suited trash. I guess it's more of a stylistic preference as so many players have different views on thos kind of things. In my mind you are dominated quite a bit by his 3-bet calling range but when you flat you keep a lot of worse hands in. Also if the board comes like K high, Q high or J hi it looks like you never have top pair!
Pretty interesting vid overall, keep them coming.
Hey guys, keep up the comments, especially any negative ones you have! I love brutal honesty when it comes to getting feedback on stuff like this.
Dakaj - really good points. I was hoping I could street poker him with A2s. AQ I just played it like that because I'd rather talk about it later on and in HU it's such a standard standard standard 4-5bet and since I was playing aggro, I just had to see.
I would like to hear back from any 6max player who plays on what they think about how I'm playing? To be honest it doesn't feel like I'm playing maniacal, that kind of aggression is kind of standard for me in HU but I do think I may tone it down a bit. I was trying to force a little too much action.
It's not that you are overagressive, its that you are agressive in wrong spots in my opinion. Mostly you should give them a lot of credit when they 4-bet you or when they 3-bet your early position raises. On another hand you could be even more agressive in some areas, opening like 100% of BTNs, 3-betting absolutely relentlessly in the BB vs their SB open as most of them open way too loose here, you could try to 3-bet very small a very wide range ip... I think there are many ways to play super aggressively in those games and make a good profit but at first its very important to give them a ton of respect when they want to put their stacks in, you will find out soon enough who is willing to go to war with you and who just keep folding waiting for big hands.
I see you don't use the color coding system when taking notes, you have every villain colored yellow. I suggest you use the color system intensely in ring games. It makes you be able to table select so much better at 6max games.
For instance I use this color coding system:
Green: fish/very weak reg
Yellow: average/weakish reg
Orange: strong reg
Red: Professional shortstacker
But ofcourse you can use whatever color you want for each type of villain.
If I was going to 3b that 36s vs. Gosu I wouldn't be cbetting on that board b/c it's a texture where one and done never gets the job done and I doubt he's folding to 2 much either, which pretty much puts us in a 3 barrel or none spot and lets be honest the only hands we really get to fold there are midpairs and you can delayed cbet to get those hands to fold a lot of the time.
