OK, I've watched the first 10 minutes of your video and I think I've got enough notes to post. I've put in a lot of questions and some thoughts that may be wrong. Hope this is ok.
First of all, I think you've got a solid style and your explanations are very good. A shame that the HUD didn't show.
Regarding tableselection. As you said yourself, the tables seemed bad with many TAGs and Nits. Nits doesn't have to be bad though, as you'll have many 3-bet opportunities. Playing the tables for the sake of the video is ok.
1:08 Table 4, KJs on BTN. UTG ($76) opens, MP calls, CO folds, Hero overcalls. "Hero: Nice suited hand that can flop trips".
Being IP with a suited broadway is very nice, but proceed with care as you can very easily be dominated. Play it to flop a FD, OESD or 2P+ hand.
Flop: QQ6 (??). BB, UTG, MP all checks, Hero bets 2.25-3.00, all folds.
I realised afterwards, that your hand might have been QJs, in which case your crushing the board. Since everyone checked, you might have checked as well, intending to induce a bet on turn. If someone holds a worse (or better) Q, the money will go in anyway (I guess?).
1:32 Table 2, Flopping OESD (87o on J96s flop) in BB, vs MP limper and SB caller. SB donks 0.75-0.72, Hero calls, MP folds. Turn is A. SB chks, Hero bets 1.5-2.14, SB calls. River is third heart Kh. SB chks, Hero talks about this being a good bluff card, but decides to chk behind. SB shows K4s for busted club draw, but 2nd pair no kicker.
You should really have considered bluffing the river an amount that looks like a value bet. Take your time and then bet half pot or slightly more. It only needs to succeed more than 25% of the time to be profitable. If you get called and loose, you'll have information on the opponent AND you might be called more light when you have a good hand.
2:13 Table 1, AQo in BB. BTN open 3x, SB folds, Hero 3-bets to 2.50, BTN folds.
Nice 3-bet. BTN probably has a wide opening range.
2:16 Table 3, Q7s in SB. BTN opens 3x, Hero 3-bets, BB and BTN folds.
2:42 Table 1, 76o in SB. Folded to Hero, who raises 3x to see how BB reacts to steals.
I like the steal attempt, just proceed with utmost care if called. I've just checked my latest 500 SB steal opportunities in HEM and am sad to see that I'm slightly loosing! I'm taking down the pot PF most of the time, but then I'm getting frisky and losing a larger opt, giving me a net loss.
BB calls and flop is KJ3r. I'd say two high cards is neither great nor bad for c-betting. You have initiative from raising PF, but you're also OOP. Consider BB's PF call range. I'd say Kx, Jx could very well be in this range. Overall I'd sometimes Cbet this flop and then be done, but I'd also often just check and give up. You tried to steal PF and it failed. Just give up and move on...
If you really wanted, you might consider a chk-raise?
3:10 K7s on BTN. CO opens 3x and Hero 3-bets to 2.50. "I'll try to get him play back at me later in this session". SB snap cold-calls, CO folds. Flop is a very dry: J62r. SB min-bets, Hero raises to 4.25, SB calls. Turn brings Hero a FD with a 6s. SB min-bets again. Hero calls, getting awesome odds. River blanks with a 9d. SB chks, Hero chks, SB shows, J8s for 2 pairs.
I like the 3-bet. Interesting post flop play, but definetely put a note on this guy. Would be awesome to have position on him.
7:46 Table 3. KTs 4x open from UTG. This is normally too loose for my taste, especially if I have been
running bad. I'm opening KJs+, ATs+, 55+, AJ+, KQ from UTG. Again, table conditions could make this an open (You said table was a little too tight, so its probably ok). Typically, if I've got some good reads on table and either;
A) MP, CO and BTN doesnt' 3bet much and usually folds to UTG raises.
B) SB and/or BB calls to much and pays of light.
C) You are deep stacked with SB and/or BB (200 BB+ ?)
In this case I might open KTs. Often I'm adding SC's and some more suited aces.
I like the 4x opening size from UTG. Under normal circumstances my opening size is depending on position only; 4x from UTG, 3Â½x MP, 3x CO and from 3x to 2x from BTN depending on table dynamics.
BTN calls, blinds fold. Flop is J33s, pot is $2.24.
You say that you might be able to 2-barrel him off, if he just calls your Flop c-bet. Which range do you put him on PF when he just calls?
He min-raises your cbet, which I also normally hate. Imagine being in BTN's place. What would you do if you had a Jx hand or a 3x? In these situations I'm starting to think that min-raises is villain testing you out with either total air, overcards that missed or a smaller pair. I think re-raising him could very often win the hand as he would need a monster to continue. BUT.. this is where I'd like to have some kind of read or note on him. Could you think of any stats on villain that might make this a raise? (I'm only asking because it's easy to forget in the heat of the moment)
BTW, I think "inavacuum's" Yin and Yang series has a lot of these situations. Check it out, if you havn't already.
OK, I get it... You say that his PF stats indicate he's a weak passive type. Good fold then.
7:50 Table 4, 3x open from BTN w ATo. SB calls, BB 3-bets to 3.25 and hero folds.
I can't see BB's stats, but what kind of hands would you need to call with? Say, if BB is a
1) 12/10 nit ?
2) 24-18% VPIP TAG that 3-bets 5% ?
3) Finally a very aggressive TAG that 3bets/squezees 10-14% ?
I'm aware that post flop stat and tendencies also play into this, but do you have any clear cut strategy for calling 3-bets IP?
Thanks for making this video LynchMob. Did you watch it yourself? Any obvious leaks that you've been able to spot yourself?
