Hey Jake,

great video!

minute 50 with the JJ hand: i would shove here, because i think pfr has nearly never a set and facing 2 all ins he will manage to fold an overpair and if not we don´t really mind. and against the other guys range i believe we have over 40% equity. So there is enough dead money in the pot, or I am totally wrong?

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.

Hi slowlane, thanks for the vid once again.
I think at this spot, you are def -ev flatting K9s from the blinds. The opponent (bottomset) is a rather good player (former DC coach) who has position on you. You also on the turn referred to him as being someone 'so loose passive' and therefore you bet out. Bottomset is not loose passive at all, and his stats so far on your hud are 30/25 which does not indicate passivity. I much prefer folding pre or 3betting, and as played I dont rly like the flop C/R because it kinda looks like air since its a rainbow QTx.

I do not understand your reasoning for checking and letting villain bet with his A. You said it is a standard bet/fold spot for villain, so I presume you do not expect him to call with an A if you check-rase. Don't you think it is better if you bet a 3/4 pot on the river? Villain is always calling you with an A, also you prevent him from checking back and if you let him bet, he might bet less than 3/4 pot (thus you loose a bit of value when he bets only like 1/2 or 2/3 pot and folds to a raise).

QJ on JxxQ. What do you think about leading turn? Seems like a spot where nittyish villains will check back a ton

I really didn't feel the guy was shoving with anything other than a set here. Not sure what range you're putting him on?

PFR never has a set, 100% guaranteed.

I have no way of knowing who he is but at the time I have him 30/25 with AFq of 23. The sample size is tiny so I am basically playing in a vacuum with thoughts that he is likely to be passive.

I think preflop is close, but probably a fold in retrospect. If someone had these stats over 200 hands it would be an easy call imo.

I think the best part of the hand is the flop x/r. I would be doing the same with 2p, sets, and big draws.

As for your second time link:

Yes, I did notice I flopped two pair. Both these players are extremely loose fishy types and I feel if I don't here I get called by both almost always (as the action played out, one bet and one called kinda proving my point) which sucks as almost every turn card is going to suck for us in a 3-way pot with bottom 2. I'd much rather x/r and feel really comfortable if they call and narrowing their range somewhat in preparation for the turn.

With stats as horrible as his are (20/6 over decent sample) I wouldn't be surprised to see him b/c with an ace here. The only thing I messed up is how passive he is which makes it very unlikely he will bet it.

Definitely should have just lead the river for 4/5th pot.

at least i would put him ond 88/99/TT/JJ and AQd. against this range we have 36.5%. thats for me worstcase and slightly -ev. with KQd we have 38%, i think that are our pot odds which we get.

but against a looser guy pre and a range of 88/99/TT/JJ AQd, KQd, JTs, T9s, 89s we have 45%. So not sure how loose this guy is utg pre and how light he will call the squueze there, but i think for many looser guys the wider range is reasonable for pushing the flop.

IMO (and you're read maybe different and you migth have a good reason why all of the following analysis is not applicable or wrong) he's never c/r folding JJ-KK on that flop. Frankly I don't think he's ever flatting them pf to your 4bet (I would expect him to shove pretty much always). I would guess his flop range for c/r'ing there is probably Txs, flush draws, GSs, maybe some midpairs just hoping you're b/f'ing, and air. maybe sets if he has them, although you would expect him to c/c sets some portion of the time.

calling is fine if you think he shoves air on the turn, but with that pot size and those stack sizes I don't think he does. to make the most money against his Tx, and flush draws, and also protect against GSs (that likely aren't shoving the turn unless they bink) is to just shove the flop. I think the flop is a pretty easy shove and you just hope that he finds a reason to call it off with a draw or a worse pair. hoping for him to bluff in 75bb with air on the turn seems a little optimistic, and it seems pretty unlikely that he is 3bet/calling a 4bet OOP pf with JJ-KK.

I really think you need to bet bigger on this flop. he's got a ton of draws in his range and over half of the deck is not great for your hand on the turn (and by extension may prevent him from putting in in the rest with a weaker one pair hand). I'd bet big now and both charge him for his draws as well as speeding up the process of extracting value from his one pair hands that might get scared off on subsequent turn and river cards. this is certainly a board texture that is more likely to improve his hand on later streets than yours.

also hate the check of the JTs flush on the A9x8A board, and i think if you relisten to your reasoning you're probably not going to agree with it either. fwiw in several of the spots in this video your explanations sound like me when I'm running bad (and by extension playing bad).

My reads do differ and I couldn't disagree more. He rarely, if ever, calls it off on the flop, and will run a lot of bluffs on the turn on an assortment of cards.

I mean let's face it Tx is the same as air here. I'm never calling the turn with 99.
