I have heard this from a few people, but would you say that 100nl HU is really the first level of entry into HU poker because the rake at lower levels is too high?

I've seen some killer-graphs at 50NL with 8-10pt/bb winrates. But rake is pretty insane for sure

Ansky you sound like you're from the mediterranean somewhere with all the passion and stuff. Grin

I think we should call down on most rivers too, but even more in this spot because his flop cbet was less than half pot, and I have a hard time believing he's good enough to bet 3 streets pretty small with a big hand anyways.

Also, I don't see why we're discussing deep ass metagame at NL100 after playing maybe 20 hands vs. the guy.

there was a spot earlier and this spot where you say he is probably floating you fairly often or at least will bet when checked to. Why not call the turn bet and let him continue to bet the river with his air/weaker hands instead of letting him fold to the jam?

So far one of the best videos I've ever seen on DC. This is a great example of what not to do as a student and how important it is as a teacher to be direct.

Dani,

Very good job. Hard not to get a little excited/irritated with students like this.

Gugel,

You don't listen very well/if at all. You need to let the expert(Dani) talk. I've had a number of students like you and it will be very difficult for you to improve if this is how you interact with your coach. Asking questions is one thing, what you're doing during the video is much different and extremely counterproductive for you and coach.

As far as the AQ hand goes. Betting the turn is waaaaaay better than checking and assuming that he floats often enough to make checking better than betting is just wrong. You're right, when has 9x or the like, you're prob. not getting any more value, but that doesn't matter. Not stacking a hand like AT is a giant error here. And like Dani said, they're going to check that type of hand back on the turn way more often than they should at these stakes.

And if you did think he's floating a ton, check raising the turn is crazy. Check/call and check river.

I agree with this, but don't let that discourage you. It is really important to iron out these inconsistencies in your thought process. As poker players (or even just people in general) we get wrapped up in our own thought processes and they become second nature to the point where we do things without any longer questioning them. It's really important to make sure that these internal processes are logically sound.

As far as the AQ hand goes. Betting the turn is waaaaaay better than checking and assuming that he floats often enough to make checking better than betting is just wrong. You're right, when has 9x or the like, you're prob. not getting any more value, but that doesn't matter. Not stacking a hand like AT is a giant error here.

I was going to write something up about this hand but this covered it better than I could voice out my thoughts.

Been a while since I've played those games, but I'd imagine that you can have an absurdly high win rate at the lower stakes games to compensate.

Considering he'd have to fold on any D, 9, J, 6 (19 cards), I'd say its fairly reasonable here to "protect" his hand, especially if he can't be confident enough to call on any of those rivers.

VS some folding the turn would be correct by the guy w/ T8.

I'm definitely in favor of more videos like this. Duel commentary videos are the nuts.

Also, one great thing about this video is that since Gugel and Ansky are such great friends, and they both seem to like to argue, a lot is discussed. It solves the problem of some mentor videos where the students don't really ask questions or try to argue alternate lines or anything, while also allowing situations that seem super standard for the high stakes coaches who might not even mention it in a duel commentary video done with two coaches to be discussed. I guess we already have both Real Life Micro- and Mid-stakes HUNL series, but whatever you call it, I'd love an Ansky/Gugel HUNL (mini-)series.

I'm very happy that Ansky is at DC now.

Good point, and that may have been the better play. One thing to consider is that most opponents will bet/call with any T here, but will check back on a lot of river cards with those hands.

wow cant watch this.. ansky is good but this 'student' is really tilting to hell. He thinks like a random 2+2 0.5ptbb winner and is aggressive his skills(which are non existant because he is a very low winner). It's really annoying to watch a video with someone who's never gonna win at a good rate, being stubborn about anything he can find.

I played my first ~5k hands or something at NL20 HU, it certainly looks very beatable...

NL50 is also very beatable, it's probably a little bit easier to win there than in NL100 even though your rake is a bit higher (in bb/100).


My favorite analogy is pretty much this: If 10ptbb/100 is possible at NL100, how could NL50 be unbeatable? I don't have the exact numbers but rake is like 1ptbb/100 more or something.

In EV, I have a 2.0 - 2.5 PTBB/100 winrate for $50-$200 HUNL over a 300,000 hand sample.

I enjoyed the vid, and asking questions is good, but you are only hurting yourself by being so stubborn Gugel. Keep an open-mind and don't try to win arguments, try to win chips. Your focus should be on figuring out the best play and why, not figuring out a way to cram the narrow range you want your opponent to have into the discussion.

And LOL at reporting your winrate in terms of EV. C'mon dude.

I really enjoyed this format since neither were afraid to disagree, but Gugel's constant attempts to talk over Dani and his inability to listen forcing Dani to constantly repeat himself made the video suffer.

great video, i dont get why people hate on Gugel. i thought he was pretty damn funny.

also thought it was great he tried to defend his plays, no matter how unreasonable they might have been. compare this to other videos, where coach and student dont know each other personally. the student always agrees with the coach, no matter if he understood what he was told or not. the coaches also mostly try to be at least somewhat diplomatic. (ok maybe not Vanessa <3 )

if i´d ever get a coach i would wanna be able to talk to him like this. one concept you really understand and are able to apply in the future is worth more than being told what the right play is for 1000 hands imo.

so, go Ansky, go Gugel. more vids please.

I think that Gugel was a great student for a video... Not because his analysis or something, but just because he seems to know Ansky well and doesn't have a problem in arguing/discussing different situations with him. And being friends probably makes it easier also for Ansky to be completely honest and not trying to be diplomatic or something.

Most of the mentor videos are just full of student saying "yes... yes... yes..." and then when the mentor asks them something they're still completely clueless. =P

Only thing that bothered me was that Gugel didn't let Ansky finish speaking. That obviously does nothing good for the video. But disagreeing with Ansky and/or explaining his own thoughts (ands Anskys comments on them) should be the point in leakfinding videos, I don't understand why anyone would complain about that.

Anyway, certainly a rediculously good video, hoping to see more NLHU by different coaches, not just bosox and gman (with occasional KRANTZ).

On the QJ hand where Gugel shoves the turn, I tend to do the same thing for a different reason. I feel that I will have to pay off the river and that he will shove 2/3 pot for value with any of the hands that beat me (AA, KK, QQ, JJ, AJ,or KJ) with the possible exception of KJ. Since I am losing my stack regardless, I feel I might as well protect against a random 2 to 6-outer by shoving turn.

Is my mistake here that I am continuing with this hand in the first place? Or am I discounting bluff equity from villain on the river by just calling turn?

This is a common situation for me and any help into my thought process would be appreciated.

Excellent video, because of the information and Gugel getting bashed.
I also think Gugel made some good calls.

Could someone please explain to me the part where Dani (Asnky) thought It would be terrible to CRAI A93Q when Gugel had AQ? I remember him saying something about certain hands that are irrelevant in villains range (set. lower two pair). I had trouble understanding this and why exactly is it bad to CRAI . Dani was very clear, but Gugel was interrupting him, so it was very confusing.

Let me try it first. This is why we should bet IMO:

- We should bet since 9x is not gonna bet, but vould bluffcatch. Anyway we're not gonna make much money against this hand.

- He might pot control with Ax, so we won't get his whole stack.

- There are no draws that he can bluff the turn. He usually has a made hand with SD-value.


Let's assume the board were drawy. I think we should bet and not check since most people will check behind and try to hit for free. They might bluff the river. Do you ever check drawy boards with strong hands? In whaty situations

Thank you

Boom, Dani nailed it. Huge problem with small stakes players in every game - you guys are dodging difficult situations because you don't know what to do and because of that you aren't always making the best play. Something like that is really hard to spot unless you're thinking about it, and you can't figure that out in HEM.

Please leave a time-stamp or better yet, Watch this short video, and leave a time link!

That will be much easier for the coaches to find the hand and answer your questions, thanks.

Not yet finished watching the video yet but OMG this kid is fuckin annoying! He is so lucky to have a world class player as his good friend and being so patient. I hardly ever comment, but this video is tilting. Hate it when nobodies try and act smart.

Questioning the coach is good but arguing for the sake of arguing or saving face is pathetic.

Ansky is a good coach, really enjoy his videos. This combination certainly has some chemistry and a future video would be good but tell Gugel to take it easy. No need to have a rebuttal for everything like a housewife.

Dunno why Gugel is getting such a hard time, these guys are friends so obviously it will be a different dynamic than student - teacher, plus the arguments made for good discussions. People probably learn better via arguing rather than just passively nodding along, it sinks in better when things get a little heated imo

In this hand As8s oop, you call and folded the flop. This seems really weak to me? If your not 3betting pre, shouldn't you be check calling on the flop? Or maybe check raising with a gutter and backdoor spades? If your check folding on this flop, then what flops are you looking for with your hand? Thanks

one of the sickest videos I've seen on any training site..

your brutal honesty shines bright.... and I love how you don't hold back in coaching gugel.

I think gugel is great, b/c of your friendship you can rip into him pretty hard without there being any hard feelings.....

absolutely great video.. it was as entertaining as it was informational
MORE PLEASE!!!!!

I think Gugel's attitude made for a pretty good video... definitely stimulated discussion.



The heated discussion/yelling rammed home the importance of thinking about these details critically. It's esp. great b/c you guys clearly respect each other enough not to b.s. each other.

Ansky-

You were about to make a passionate theory point- "always remember you've got to add in bluff equity..." -but you were interrupted. Could you elaborate?

Thanks

Was just making a pt that your hand gains value when you can expect to induce bluffs from your opponent, and when you jam you take away that equity.

Really like this format-- for instance you can pause and discuss a vital topic. Thanks for taking the time to make this video, Dani.

This is a really good format. I like Ansky getting to explain why not to do so many things. In other videos its 2 people that always know what to do so they just explain the correct move instead of seeing it from the pov of someone who is actually on this level and what goes through novice players heads. I feel like I got alot out of this and it is very entertaining more please.

Ansky your vids are always on point back to the early savy days I hope I can afford your coaching someday.

Just watched this after Mitch mentioned it.

Ansky, you gotta put the band back together...please!!

Gugel is an epic student. He makes mistakes, and provides the thinking for them...perfect...probably the best student ever.

"shut the fuck up"

this is the Dani that I miss!

Back in the day, Dani made the best ever video for PokerSavy ( i think) where he reviewed a $25-50nl game that P.Hellmuth was playing it. Its pure gold! Dani summed up P.H.'s play by saying, " its like watching blind, retarded monkeys throwing shit at one another"!!

Is it ok to c/r with the 4 on this flop? Think are hand is best alot of time on flop but vulnerable also lot of turns we get barreled on.

lol if you think he's floating why the hell would you ever check raise all in with top 2 on that board. c/c c/c.
Your turn line doesn't make any sense with your priori assumption. I mean if you said he's going to b/c with any ace or floated q because i've taken this line with flush draws and turned straight draws then c/ jamming makes alot more sense. I mean check call turn is so much better than check shove. You rep hands like a q or a weak ace when you check call and some really good hand readers or really bad hand readers might just bet shove river for different reasons. You can value both from thinner value bets from a8,at, and aj hands or maybe gain value from someone with someone spazzying. Otherwise bet bet bet is the best line.
