Flaming, Ulkis, Magaca, dispatch3d, stmarys,
Thanks for the kind words.
That sucks. I have no idea how to help you, though. Try posting in the All About DC forum maybe?
Yeah, I would never call there. With the pot size so large relative to stacks (calling would leave us with like half pot), and a lot of his air having 10 outs against us, protection is really important.
I don't like my commentary on that hand in general, though. I completely brainfarted and didn't see the fact that my preflop call looks incredibly strong with these stacks at NL200 where regs pretty much only flat there with like JJ+. I prob should be mucking the flop because of that and pretty much never shoving the turn against anyone. (I'm used to playing in games that are hyper-aggressive and 200+ BBs deep, where the dynamic of cold calling 3-bets is totally different.)
Sorry that bugs you. My voice annoys the hell out of me, too, so you're not alone.
panopt + knut,
Yeah.. I'd bet that turn against a different kind of villain. I was just thinking that this guy is prob never mucking a 9 and he has a 9 really often. knut's idea of betting 3 streets works really well against people who fold really often to the river bet, but it's a very expensive bluff, so it has to work very often. Vs. some fish who limp/called preflop, I don't like it because it's too likely he gets stubborn.
lol. Glad you liked the video.
That's exactly what I was thinking about in the AcJc hand. But basically I decided that if he has pair + club or a pair + OESD, then the best play is to bet big because if I bet small he might call a and fold to a river shove, but if I bet big he prob won't be able to fold since he seems fishy. Since that's such a huge part of his range, I went with the big bet.
Glad you liked the vid, and glad you enjoy my voice.
Yeah.. I just thought it'd be fun to play a few more hands so that I could spend more time talking about hands and less time filling dead air. As it happens, I didn't get too many closish preflop spots, so I ended up not mattering much IIRC.
