I think that Gugel was a great student for a video... Not because his analysis or something, but just because he seems to know Ansky well and doesn't have a problem in arguing/discussing different situations with him. And being friends probably makes it easier also for Ansky to be completely honest and not trying to be diplomatic or something.

Most of the mentor videos are just full of student saying "yes... yes... yes..." and then when the mentor asks them something they're still completely clueless. =P

Only thing that bothered me was that Gugel didn't let Ansky finish speaking. That obviously does nothing good for the video. But disagreeing with Ansky and/or explaining his own thoughts (ands Anskys comments on them) should be the point in leakfinding videos, I don't understand why anyone would complain about that.

Anyway, certainly a rediculously good video, hoping to see more NLHU by different coaches, not just bosox and gman (with occasional KRANTZ).

On the QJ hand where Gugel shoves the turn, I tend to do the same thing for a different reason. I feel that I will have to pay off the river and that he will shove 2/3 pot for value with any of the hands that beat me (AA, KK, QQ, JJ, AJ,or KJ) with the possible exception of KJ. Since I am losing my stack regardless, I feel I might as well protect against a random 2 to 6-outer by shoving turn.

Is my mistake here that I am continuing with this hand in the first place? Or am I discounting bluff equity from villain on the river by just calling turn?

This is a common situation for me and any help into my thought process would be appreciated.

Really liked this video guys. Thought the interaction was great and it was really good to have a coach get quizzed a lot and to have the coach really hammer home what the best play is and why. Brilliant stuff. More of the same please!

Excellent video, because of the information and Gugel getting bashed.
I also think Gugel made some good calls.

Could someone please explain to me the part where Dani (Asnky) thought It would be terrible to CRAI A93Q when Gugel had AQ? I remember him saying something about certain hands that are irrelevant in villains range (set. lower two pair). I had trouble understanding this and why exactly is it bad to CRAI . Dani was very clear, but Gugel was interrupting him, so it was very confusing.

Let me try it first. This is why we should bet IMO:

- We should bet since 9x is not gonna bet, but vould bluffcatch. Anyway we're not gonna make much money against this hand.

- He might pot control with Ax, so we won't get his whole stack.

- There are no draws that he can bluff the turn. He usually has a made hand with SD-value.


Let's assume the board were drawy. I think we should bet and not check since most people will check behind and try to hit for free. They might bluff the river. Do you ever check drawy boards with strong hands? In whaty situations

Thank you

EDIT. More SSNL HU with two tables. I loved it!!

Dani makes a good point, bet the river... but see above comment, you could have won the hand on the flop or by the river.

Boom, Dani nailed it. Huge problem with small stakes players in every game - you guys are dodging difficult situations because you don't know what to do and because of that you aren't always making the best play. Something like that is really hard to spot unless you're thinking about it, and you can't figure that out in HEM.

Please leave a time-stamp or better yet, Watch this short video, and leave a time link!

That will be much easier for the coaches to find the hand and answer your questions, thanks.

Great vid.
And having a student like this, who argues a lot is the best you can ask for. At least from the viewer point of view, since we are getting much more info.

Hands down without a doubt the best poker video I've ever seen in my life. Just overtook KRANTZ vs Nowa1, my previous favorite.

Not yet finished watching the video yet but OMG this kid is fuckin annoying! He is so lucky to have a world class player as his good friend and being so patient. I hardly ever comment, but this video is tilting. Hate it when nobodies try and act smart.

Questioning the coach is good but arguing for the sake of arguing or saving face is pathetic.

Ansky is a good coach, really enjoy his videos. This combination certainly has some chemistry and a future video would be good but tell Gugel to take it easy. No need to have a rebuttal for everything like a housewife.

Thanks for the tip, now I can finally be sure I'll know how to spell this very difficult word! Grin
