PygmyHero and AdriennesRevenge return and they have brought a guest, Nfinity. This week's topic is multiple tables, and the do's and don'ts behind the process.
A year ago, Entity took PygmyHero under his wing in the series "Real Life: Microlimit Grinder," and coached him from struggling at $.5/$1 to winning at 10x the stakes. Now it's Pygmy's turn to give back, as he takes a struggling microlimit LHE student, AdriennesRevenge, and attempts to duplicate the success he's had in the past year.

I want to say thanks to Nfinity for joining us on this episode. You were a big help and added useful commentary AND sarcasm.
heh. The sarcasm quip was in reference to the enormous amount of accolades you were attributing to me. I did bring the funny, if you listen to me fumble around the intro-hilarity ensues.
I picked up though, when we got back into my element.
Thank you and Jess for having me.
~15:22 AKo in the BB versus a made up field
It's unfortunate that Nfinity and I are both talking at the same time here becuase after DeathDonkey raises UTG I said that, 'Rob isolate-raises him with Q high.'
~52:40 Q5s in the BB and Pokerazor
Special thanks to sushiglutton for showing me some of the features of Pokerazor. I'm still exploring it but it's clearly a very useful and powerful tool.
~1:40:04 JJ HULTA on AT6t
Of course KJ is actually NOT a 6 outer on this flop (it has 7 outs ldo). Hopefully that doesn't confuse anyone - the point we were making and the concepts involved remain unchanged. Whether or not you want the villain to fold depends on the pot odds they're getting (i.e., the size of the pot) and the number of outs they have.
One thing I should have addressed in the video was a comment Jess made, 'You're giving him credit for understanding pot odds but not metagame?' NO - but a villain can play correctly/incorrectly against us without understanding how or why. Likewise, we profit from a villain's mistake whether he/she knows they made an error.
~1:49:49 Nfinity recommends a book
There was some confusion about the name / author of this book. Here it is.
~1:51:18 AJo on KT73 board 3 ways
The hand we're referring to was from Episode 2 and particularly BusinessGypsy's post a little way down the thread.
I find it really odd that you both say my name as, "PygmyHERO."
19:00 in, checking AK on the Q65-2-2 board where the flush comes in, the fact that villain is unlikely to bet one pair should make us more inclined to check/call because his range is "polarized" on the river between a narrow range of strong hands and (possibly) bluffs.
But since we think he never bluffs, we think his river betting range is only very strong hands and therefore we should check/fold. Still it's important to realize that a player may be betting only the top and bottom of his range (polarization -- nuts or busted draw) and then the decision to call is based on the math of the pot odds vs the ratio of strong hands to bluffs in his range.
38:30 in -- the TT hand, it's worth mentioning that vs Jx, you actually have (more or less) 11.5 outs. In addition to the 10 full house outs, there are 3 jacks that will give you a chop (so count them as a half out). The exceptions are if your opponent has AJ (where you still lose if the river is a J) or has JJ (in which case there are 2 Js left to make the chopping straight).
57 minutes in, after Adri folds Qc5c and the flop is 7c6c3c. You need to take a note on the actions of the player Maximus37. He has AhAd and his line is c/c flop, c/c 5d turn, b/c 4h river and loses to 8c8s. At least he played preflop well...
PS: Nfinity, you are a good teacher.
22 min in, why do you say its a clear fold with 810s vs utg limper and isolation raise? We have a good multiway hand on the button against whats typically a really weak lineup. I`d never fold this fwiw.
this is the exact same situation we are in at the 67o hand.
same thing applies.
