I don't like the check/raise with AQ on the turn at all.
There is absolutely no reason to do so, in my opinion.
We don't get a better hand to fold ever obv and I see basically 0 chance we get paid off by worse.
He is very likely to check worse Ax behind on the turn (what reason should he have to bet AJ here?), he is probably also checking behind some of the weaker draws, if he got there somehow with it.
He prolly bets J9s though to get you off mid PPs, but he won't stack off anyways and there is so little J9 in his range cause he has to bluff 3bet in the first place, which he is very unlikely to do with J9s, cause people just love to have blockers like Ax and Kx in this spot, then he has to bluff cbet, he has to bluff 2nd barrel and not check behind etc.
Not even close enough of J9 and other draws to check/ship here to protect (and if there are they get probably overweighted by other random two pair combinations).
You are way way way more likely to get stacked every single time by AK, A8, A5, AT (hands that are way more likely to bluff3bet than every single possible draw), don't forget the one combo of AA, and as you said, if he can have J9 (which I think he would fold to a c/shove, saving 50bb) he can also have T8 and crush you, so thats basically another reason against c/shipping and not pro, I think.
And seriously, you as the guy that is all about reasons for betting should instantly know that it's no reason for betting when you say "I would have 4bet and get it in anyways". Thats absolutely no argument.
Would be the same like stacking off with AsKd on T987cccc in a 3bet pot, saying "well I would have gotten it in preflop if he'd 4bet anyways".
And saying "I'm just not going to fold them" is just a bad approach in poker... thats why the fish get stacked with their TP every time.
Even if you really don't want to fold it, why do you c/raise and push all of his bluffs out of his range and not just c/c turn, c/c river, where he would probably sometimes show up with a bluff (way more likely than he stacks off with worse on the turn imo)?
This is not frustrating, this is just played bad imo, sorry bro
I don't know why nobody but ceegee comments on that, as this is probably the worst hand I've ever saw baluga play...
I might be terribly wrong with all that, cause you are a way greater poker mind than I am, but all my bad play alarm clocks are ringing here and your reasoning just doesn't make any sense.
So if you still think that c/shoving is good there, please prove it to me with real arguments and tell me where I am wrong
hahaha, now that I've watched the end, I'm probably going to be the Malefiicus of this video
