Just another day at the tables. Let's win 2 million in 2 months. Gee it feels good to be a gangster.
Two months. Two million. No problem. That's Team Israel's goal for the summer in Vegas. Watch Jay help hit it. This ongoing series is an in-depth look at his life during the shooting of whitelime, flawless_victory, Ansky and KRANTZ's forthcoming reality TV show (filming in Vegas this summer and airing on G4 in late August). Jay will play and analyze hands he's actually playing while on television, using an aggressive bankroll management strategy to climb from 5/10 and 10/20 back to the nosebleeds. Can he make it? We have faith. They don't call him pr1nnyraid for nothin'.

Interesting to see you playing some FR. Couple of questions about the JJ hand where you re-raised Boykee in position then get it in vs. a cold 4bet by Artanis.
You mentioned that you would normally flat JJ against a raise but image considerations led you to 3-betting. What are you doing if you flat the raise and then Artanis squeezes from the blinds (and Boykee just folds)? I'm guessing you'd rarely flat QQ-AA to the original raise so JJ is near the top of your flatting range, but getting it in pre-flop and calling both seem pretty marginal to me. Would you continue with any smaller pairs? AQ/KQ?
I'd probably just shove against an unknown, reps any pocket pair and gets calls from AT+ in these games v often.
Jay, please do a duel commentary vid with Ansky or something with him in your next vid. aejones already did this with him at leggopoker so maybe your sites could work out the same deal with PokerSavy as you have with Bluefire in the past.
Ansky could make an appearance at some point...
The 97 hand against benyamineX on the T T 8 board you said you hated his flop play with Q8 and one of the reasons you cited was that he should keep his range as wide as possible. Isn't his range going to be wider playing the hand the way he did? If he just calls he's essentially repping a range of made hands many of which are strong which makes it really hard for you to try and bluff. If he raises he can now have air/strong hands which is essentially what you are hoping when you call and plan on betting just about any river. He's also protecting his equity against random overcard hands that may bluff the flop which seems like another benefit. If he doesn't really expect you to continue to bluff if he calls on that board and also expects you to always have equity then it seems raising the flop would always be better. You could argue his river call is marginal at best since it was one of the worst cards for him but other than that I would think his play was ok.
He is just putting way way too much money into a hand in which he's crushed vs my range that continues when he can keep the pot small, which should be his primary concern without much metagame.
You def can't argue his river call is marginal at best, it's lighting money on fire.
When you 3b kings right after you 3b 68s, why do you check that flop?
They're gonna assume you're wide and with your air you'd cbet there right? By checking you turn your hand face up as showdown value and you won't reall induce turn bluffs. By betting you can induce a c/r or maybe a light c/c.
Also, dual commentary video with Ansky (or any other player combo) like he did with Aejones would be the nuts.
I think I should have bet here too.
In the 86hh hand, we're calling 1128 for the main pot and 3019 for the side pot, and looks like main pot is about 6800 before we act. Here are my rough ranges:
Sorry for the pokerstove formatting. Basically, I figure a good guess is that Deldar would shove his nut FDs and his pair + FDs, but not other FDs. That's prob not exactly right but I think it's a decent approximation to the number of FDs he actually shoves and our equity against them.
Anyway, that gives us 30% equity in the main pot and 42% equity in the side pot. So if there were no side pot, equity from calling would be .30*(1128+6800)-1128 = 1250. And from side pot, .42*(2*3019)-3019 = -483. So you end up making $767 with my ranges.
So basically, it's ridic close. If we give deldar a couple less FDs or a little less 89/99, then it's a fold. Obv if we throw in overpairs it becomes a call again. So, it really depends on his very specific tendencies for shoving vs. calling here.
Thanks Noah, you're awesome. This was pretty much the consensus when I discussed with Flawless.
I think I'd also call the 86 hand BUT...if you rewind the video to the hand (at about 50:00) you can actually see a slight/odd hesitation on his part which may or may not be a timing tell. When I watched the video I def. noticed it but not sure if it stood out more in retrospect due to the results
***transcontinental run good luck blessing for the house***
Think live play is much more interesting than going over sessions afterwards.
If you run out of time on hands, you can always go over them at the end with pokertracker.
IÂ´d call the 86s too, itÂ´s somewhat close though, as you rep an overpair like you said and he might ship fairly wide if he thinks he has the fish beat and have decent equity in case you call.
gl with the 2 mill, will be interesting to follow when it airs.
