In BalugaWhale's first video, he 2-tables 1000nl 6max on Full Tilt Poker. The focus of the video is the creation of image, both postflop and preflop, and the manipulation of game environment.

baluga, after watching 10 minutes of this video i stopped. you were going to bet fold that 10 8 hand LOLOLOL, when your hand looks so weak and he could be shoving a decent ace there for value? you talk about all this image bs, yet you fold q9s, you fold an ace on the button when folded to you, and there is even an extra 5 bucks out there. you should NOT be making videos.
as for the BS stuff (u like to call it) i don't think it fits in these forums, we or hehehe all players might make mistakes but hey stop the BS thing or get banned IMO.
now,,,,,,contribute or shut up.
Really good video, really enjoyed seeing a different style played out with some awesome commentary. It would be great to see a series from you in the next season's line-up where you record a long 4-tabling session, and then afterwards overdub your commentary, so we can see a fuller version of your image building techniques in action.
All in all, great video with plenty of food for thought. Thanks.
thanks for the love guys
a few things. There is a big difference between facing a c/shove from a good, aggressive player on the turn there and facing a c/shove from a passive player. Two pair looks great vs someone aggro. On that board, it looks pretty bad vs someone passive. I didnt think the player in that hand was likely to shove A+draw or J9. Even if he could, he needs to have a draw wayyyy more often than a stronger hand because of equity--i explain this concept in the vid. Im not sure why I folded Q9s, ill have to rewatch it.
As for Axo otb and T9o otb, as I said in the video, these certainly could be raises, but one thing my students will tell you-- i dont really love offsuit cards, and I don't feel like I'm missing much from leaving some of them out.
remember guys, this is NO-Limit, and the blinds don't really matter.
