Table 6: If we assume that his range is weighted heavily towards made hands and draws on the flop, and he checks the turn back (which I would assume discounts his value hands), I'm confused about the purpose of the blockbet when he's going to be checking the river back with the small part of his range that does have SD value and betting (presumably) a polarized range from which we discounted big value hands. This spot feels like a c/c to me, given the way the board ran out...thoughts? (I'm probably missing something here)
regarding theory vids, i'd like to see a vid (or part of a vid) on blind vs blind play, both as the stealer and as the bb. i haven't ever seen a vid focusing on this topic, but i think it's pretty important for fr since it comes up a lot. i'd esp like to see some stuff on post flop play vs guys who steal a ton. i know we need to defend wide, but often i'm confused a lot post flop since most of my moves (floating, bluff raising) never seem to work.
great first episode btw, the K hi c/r pwnage was epic.
Regarding the KQ hand; would you make plays this thin at lower stakes or do you prefer to wait for better spots? Is it more opponent dependent than stake dependent? Do you consider making less thin-value plays in juicier games?
An idea for the theory video:
I'd like to see a theory video about playing from the blinds vs regulars.
Regarding these situations:
I'm having trouble with figuring out when and what hands to 3bet vs regs from the blinds. What hands to call with, when to check/raise flops, when to lead, when to float, how to play vs aggressive barrelers from the blinds. I would love to see a theory video about that subject.
Table one: 87: You say: "there are some good card we can double barrel in this spot". Which cards are you planning on double barreling? ( my guess: any 5, 9, Q, K,A) And I assume you would check fold this board we had like 22-55?
