Where is the 4th episode?
ZOmg - 2 fisted red-line!! Watching both at once right now!
That's the guy who potcontrolled QQ on TXY X earlier, no?
I mean, I guess I often fold flop but if I call, then his turnbet will make me more likely to call down than vs a bet-check-bet line.
this is HU and that might change the dynamic. Like I said, I guess I fold flop but once we're here, we have to go with our read I think.
EDIT: I had paused the video before you called. I thought you'd fold
I can see merits for calling the flop etc, although I'd probably make a thin value shove. The fish, as you said, isn't really folding anything here - anything being everything from top pair to a retard straight draw, so we might as well just ship it in here. Uggen probably has a draw most of the time here too, and if not - we can still stack the fish in a side pot a lot of the time. Uggen is Norwegian, so he likes flushes, so therefore he has more draws in his range than your average joeschmoepoker111.
When you do call, I really hate checking the turn because you're essentially just giving free cards to both the players. Uggen isn't going to bluff with his stacksize and the pot size etc so he'll probably check behind a ton because he's Norwegian and likes flushes. We're basically giving both players free cards to beat us if we have the best hand, and given the pot size we're not folding against Uggen anyways. Also, Jonas still has that weak ass range and he's proven to be willing to gamble, so let's give him that opportunity.
I think flop and/or turn is a shove. Definitely shoving turn.
Do you usually 4 table? Or is your standard 8 tables+?
Also the kings / 8 Ten suited hand I was gonna fold river but then this voice in my head popped up saying "I'm grindcore and I win without showdown" and "I'm gonna bet 35 here to make it look like a value bet" and just couldn't fold!
Anyway great vids, gonna watch them several times, really like the fact that you just put 2 hours of action out there so we can study your game.
AKs hand on 1st table: can you explain on a flop this dry what's your range of doing this kind of play and why.
As semibluffs AK AQ KQ, probably AJ too, and any draw, though I'm flatting all hands that flop a draw there preflop.
Depending on how likely the players behind me to bet, I'll also do it with JJ+ (TT if I squeeze pre, but I probably flat that) for value. If there's a chance they'll either pot control or give up with air, I prefer just cbetting JJ+ and shoving turn. Or if one of the callers is a super dishonest float monkey and calling pre with all kinds of crap, I'll bet flop c/c turn.
Against unknowns I'd probably just bet flop for value here.
