Great video, can't wait to watch #2 in your series!
You say in the video that you will be starting out with opening the SB 100% against everybody because people in general folds too much in BB.
Which player types (in BB) are best / worst to open against in the SB? Isn't it better to try and steal blinds from Tight players instead of loose players?
You open 4 x BB from UTG (with suited connectors). Is it always 4 x BB from UTG?
You opens UTG+1 with ATo, and folds to a SB 3Bet. Which Range should be Open-Folding / Open-Calling / Open-4Bet?
You calls in BB against a BTN steal (3 x BB) with pair 88. Do we call with all pairs? How loose will does the opponent have to be before we start to 3Bet him?
The answer to these questions: it depends... In my other series, The Thin Red Line, I talk general theory and focus on adjusting in the first episode, so that'd probably be a good watch. However, all my videos are geared towards players that already have all the fundamentals down, with as goal to help them expand beyond that. If you start expanding beyond the fundamentals without having them down yet, you'll do more harm than good to your game, so it might be better to watch some series by other instructors first. Don't underestimate the importance of what I just said, as many people did and proceeded to lose a lot of money and complain my videos made them spewy. I'd say when you're capable of beating NL50 would be a good time to start watching my series. But you're obviously free to watch whatever you want
At the beginning of your session you have just argued that it is better to C-Bet closer to Pot size when you are up against a fishy player. After 21:45 minutes you only C-Bet Â½-Pot, is that because this is a 3Bet pot?
You should cbet close to pot for value and close to half pot as a bluff, as fish will fold anyway with air and will call anyway if they've hit. To a regular this strategy could be face up and you risk giving away your hand, but a fish won't adjust to it. In general I cbet half pot in 3bet pots as that works out well with stacksizes (river is a half pot shove this way). But I'll cbet larger (or smaller) vs fish in 3b pots too.
After 31:30 minutes you play a multiway hans and you seems to believe that the only player who are able to trap is the player that are first to act. The other players would have bet the flop if they have connected with the flop.
Question: How much of this depends on how wet/dry the board is. Do people tend to be more trappy on dry boards and Value Bet on wet boards or the other way around?
Yeah people are more trappy on dry boards, as there are less action killing cards, or cards where their opponent can suck out on them. On wet boards there are also more hands that can call you if you fast play.
Close to the end of the session you got dealt AJo in the CO, UTG opens (3Â½ x BB). You say: "If you don't call it 3Bet it, cause it is the best hand that you folded otherwise". I do not understand that sentence?
Could you please explain it a little further?
I extensively cover this in the first episode of The Thin Red Line. Keep the disclaimer in mind though.
