FF, I enjoyed the discussion of how the opponent's 77 4-bet was correct because it disallows you from freely 3b-5b jamming all of your pocket pairs confidently. Would opponent want to flat 22-55, and perhaps 4-bet call off 66+? Where would the line be drawn iyo.

Also, if play were 150 bbs deep, you raise, opponent 3bets, what pp's are you flatting and which are you 4bet getting it in? (assuming for example it is an opponent like this - probably a decent and somewhat aggro player, but pretty much unknown.)

Thanks, enjoying the vid!

Flatting 22-55 is a pretty bad play imo, not high enough implied odds 100 BBs deep and too unplayable. I think 66 could be a call but is probably just a jam (and then you jam big hands to balance)

150 deep probably only 4b/calling 99+ and flatting the lower ones

Hey FwF,

You mentioned that this was a good board to c/r bluff against Vivec because he would call with a lot of A high and then fold to further action.

Given the action, it seems he had Ax a lot here but called turn then folded river. If you had say J8 when you bluffed but didn't improve, would you still have been firing this river?

hey FWF, end of the video you 5bet with AK, what would you do if he 6bets you ? do you ever expect him to 6bet bluff you or if not, do you think he would do it with worst hand for value?

Do you think betting turn+river with the 88 here for value is good, he is leading tons of turns, so I would think he would be betting all Ax and Kx hands for value/balance alot so when he checks we are almost always ahead and can sometimes get 2 streets for 5x or 3x

i like AK! i don't even think it's worth worrying about what he could have, in any aggro match with tons of 4b/5b folding AK for 300BBs is bad

FWF, I just wanted to chime in and say this series was the nuts and I hope you make more HU vids and not 6max ones. It's good to have you back!

Hey FwF,

you said u would call here with any 9 but there is basically no difference between calling w 9x and K high because he is never /(or) veeeery rarely turning hand worse than 9x but better than K high into the bluff.

Great serie, thanks.

Is it just me that lol'd at the "it's kinda hard to have a pair of kings, especially with a king on the board" comment? =)

You call with a nine for game theory purposes: you can't just call everything because then you'll start getting owned by any smart opponent and you can't fold everything, so you use 9x as a decent enough regulator of your calling range

Also there's a big difference between KQ and 89: 89 reduces combos of 9x in his hand and KQ only chops with KQ which is a big part of his bluffing range

One big problem with the headhunter series. There is only Headhunter and not Headhunter 2,3,4 etc Smile
