Great series guys, i think more of the same with maybe a mix of 6max and HU with quizes like the moneytrain series? Nothing wrong with a little DC member interaction right?

Looking forward to more vids guys

Very nice series. I prefer vid reviews because they are more fun to watch, but i learned more from this probably.
As for more from you? I obv would like to see more mid/high level heads up vids in general from dc, and you guys clearly form a great pair so that would fit in it. jk3a playing some midstakes regs (format aka headhunters, but level down) and you both commenting on it? With some focus on getting better in a bumhunting midstakes world?

really good hands this video.
Hand 2: Could you elaborate more on your 4betting range vs this sort of guys? I totally get the '4bet playable hands' kind of stuff, but are you completely depolarising your range but making a tough decision where to cut off when he jams (say call AJ fold AT), or are you still polarising some (say 4bet/call AJ, leave out those middle aces with tough decisions if he jams, and then 4bet A8s and below and J8s and the likes).
I hope it is clear what I am trying to get to here.


Hand 1: nice hand, agree with everything, would play the same. maybe not the peel on the turn but too lazy too look it back up what it was all about. Ax on the river is a bluffraise too right? There are no real blocker issues that I am not thinking about I hope.

Hand 3: I think preflop your 3bet size is too small imo, you can easily go 44 and even 48, especially when you say your 3bet range is really strong (at least stronger than mine in that spot, combined with villains tendencies), leaving money on the table there imo. Flop bet is too small but you addressed that. River I was thinking you could fold (even with all these ranges and doesnt make sense stuff) but once you said he was capable of bluffing here (most fish/bad regs/whatevs aren't}, obv go with it.

Given that this guy isn't some kind of reg, i think it becomes much easier to 4bet/fold value hands. Yes he was aggro pre with the 3betting but i think it takes another level of aggro to be 5bet shipping over 4bets. This is often a difference between someone who is a reg and willing to sling stacks around pre and a recreational player who are often what i refer to as "1 step" aggro and not necessarily "2 step" aggro. You see this a lot with cbetting a lot and not 2 barreling, or checkraising flops a lot but not following through on the turn, and in spots like this 3betting a lot but not necessarily 5betting real wide. Obv each player is different but my default assumption, especially after seeing a guy flat 4bets a lot, is that the more hands they flat 4bets with the less inclined they are to 5bet ship light, mostly because they feel fine just clicking call. So their 5bet range i assume to be still pretty strong until either frequency or showdown indicates otherwise. So I think even just value 4betting a hand like AJ and folding to a 5bet is probably not that bad against many of these types and I'm willing to get exploited the first couple times before adjusting my read. I wouldn't take this approach vs someone I suspected could 5bet jam light (so this includes basically any type of hu regular).

Given that we feel like we can 4bet fold lots of hands because the villain's default inclination is to call instead of fold, i think that opens up the ability to 4bet any reasonably playable hand like you mentioned. J8s, Q9s, K4s, ATo, KQo if we want, but isn't required. Certainly flatting those hands is also going to be fine vs an aggro 3bettor as well, so the determination would come from game flow/recent history and how fit or fold he is playing in 4bet pots. You will find some of these types who play super aggro pre but when it comes to stack committing decisions in 4bet pots they become less inclined to pull the trigger.

But again, everyone is different.

Yea no blocker issues, I'd probably be bluff raising with about anything here except maybe 5x or a set


Hand 3: I think preflop your 3bet size is too small imo, you can easily go 44 and even 48, especially when you say your 3bet range is really strong (at least stronger than mine in that spot, combined with villains tendencies), leaving money on the table there imo.

Yea this was a pretty tough hand, i agree many ppl might not be willing to bluff here, obv having some idea of what your opponent is capable of makes all the difference, even though it didn't work out this time.

I'm pretty sure the SN is related to the highest level of measurement/scale of measurement where there is a non-arbitrary level of zero (e.g. the Kelvin scale for temp).

In statistics, it's important to remember that statistical measures (mean/median/mode/range/standard deviation, etc) can only be applied to ratio-level variables. If you try and use these measures on a variable that is only measurable on a lower-level scale (interval/ordinal/nominal) it will not be meaningful. Interestingly, sciences like psychology have very few, if any variables that can be measured on a ratio scale, yet they are one of the leading scientific fields who use statistics to uncover truth.

Why was Hand 1 played so badly by Villain. Is it because he is overrepping his hand?

mostly relative to his turn donk bet as in it makes little sense for value and little sense as a bluff. c/c or c/r are both likely better
