I have questions about a couple hands:
1. Around 43:00, A8o in the CO on bottom-left. After you turn the ace you say on that you are going to check/call turn and river. This seems like a good plan for the turn and for most rivers, but I'm not sure about the Qs. After villain sees you c/c the ace on the turn, AND after the flush gets in, do you really expect villain to be bluffing here very often?
2. Around 48:00, QJs on BTN on top-right. You say the ace is a bad card to barrel, but it seems to me like a really good card to barrel. After villain 3-bets and then check-calls flop, I expect most of his range to be 55-99 and T8s, T9, JT, QT, maybe KT. Sure he might have SOME AJ-AK, but a) you have a Q and J blocker, and b) he might be likely to either cbet and barrel with those hands or just c/f flop, removing even more combos. So basically I think you can easily rep an ace by betting, plus you now have more equity with the gutshot, so it seems like a clear barrel spot to me. Your thoughts?
Please follow the instructions on how to time stamp in a question. It makes it easier for me to answer, and is better for anyone else trying to learn from your question.
As for the hands, A8 is probably close on a Qs river, but I still think I'd call. There aren't many better hands to bluff catch with. I also think c/r might be good.
The 2nd hand, you make some good points, I think he definitely has a lot of non ace hands. I think barreling there is a good option, (though certainly not a 100% thing).
