First off: Very nice video with excellent commentary.
thanks, glad you enjoyed!
Some general questions:
Is it possible to show the pa-hud statts in the next video's?
unfortunately, this series is already completely made. we're going to work on adding pahud stats into the hand replayer for next season but in the event that we don't, we'll definitely incorporate more info about them at least by telling you what they are, as a quite a few people have expressed interest in that.
Are there going to be hands in the future vids where you make a correct move but hit the top of someones range or it goes wrong? (It's easy to think that you can now take away every 3bet pot with position if you watch it happen 7 times in a row ).
Haha, well hmm. I think there are one or two hands throughout the series that don't work the way we want that we include. We didn't include too many for obvious reasons, but we kept your point in mind. We included some episodes with real time play to give you a better idea of frequencies, just so you didn't think that we were pulling these moves all the time and winning every hand
Some questions about the actual hands:
The 78cc hand (starts 21:35). You saythat you should do it with AA/KK and they'll call with worse hands more often.. but doesn't that mean they'll also call you more often than you want when you (semi)bluff on those boards because they put you on a semibluff? Mostly because you'll be (semi)bluffing more often because it's harder to make hands .
Of course, if/when you do it with AA/KK (and I really should have said QQ/JJ when hand protection is more of an issue, it's going to be an even better play), you should try to pick the spots when you think they have a good hand I mean, I know that sounds cryptic but there are going to be spots where either you "feel" it or certain conditions exist that you think this person is not squeezing light. Then take this board texture and do it with a big hand. You don't have to do it often - it only takes showing down a big hand with this play one or two times to get a ton of folding equity on your semibluff shoves in the future. I work a lot of shoves w/ top pair mediocre kicker in 3bet pots in my game specifically for this reason.
What would be your calling range vs a shove when you are the villain in this spot? If AKo is not in that range would you Cbet AK on that board (again if you were in the villains spot).
Come on, that just depends on who shoves on me and probably what I ate for breakfast that morning.
the 47dd hand on 38:40
Once he checks to you on the flop you decide to make a very small bet on the flop of less then 1/2 pot. What is your action if you get called and the turn blanks out and he checks to you again, would you double barrel (to push him off a possible AK he did call the flop getting somewhat decent odds).
And if the turn comes like the Ace of hearts or the King of hearts.. would you consider 'double barreling' if checked to? (I can go on about what your river action would be but that would become a little to long ).
I don't know if I would double barrel or not and i think the cards you mention are definitely decent double barreling cards against his check/calling range (TT and JJ or like 9T, right?) but I will just say that a check/call of 2/5 pot isn't that strong as a preflop 3bettor, so take from that what you will and make your own inferences.
I had some more questions but they were mostly about how you would handle the spots you put your opponents in. (for example in the blindbattle where you donk into him with KQ on the Kxx board, what is your default line if someone would do that to you and you're sitting with the AQ in position?)
Yeah I mean that's a tough question. I don't have a "default" line per se, but in the past let's just say I haven't loved being led into, but not too many people did it with strong hands. After I make this video, I might have to reconsider people's ranges... but that's not a huge worry, that's the fun of poker, right? Constantly figuring it out and getting better. So I haven't had a default line in the past and I certainly am not going to have one now. Those are the tough questions, but hopefully by thinking about the game enough, you'll have the tools and thought processes to make thoughtful decisions to answer those questions in a way that suits your own game.
