Welcome back guys! Lets get back to work.

06:54 K3s: Why call? Is it because of the pot odds?

27:19 99: Why not 3bet there? I feel it is a better play. By calling we don't iso the fish and of course we might get squeezed. I also don't like the bet on the river. For me there are just not that many worse hands that would call our bet. Anyways. Just my thoughts.

30:30 KQo: Out of curiosity. When you talk about the snap check on the turn, do you mean that they often snap check with their weak flushes only, or that they snap check with weak flushes and with air or maybe some weak pair?

45:37 AQs: What about checking on the turn trying to induce a bluff. My whole idea here is that if we bet the turn and get called we most likely wont get called again by worse hands if we bet again on the river. On the other hand if we check the turn we might induce a bluff from a hand that potentially could have folded if we bet the turn and also if he checks the river we can bet trying to make our hand to look like a bluff and therefore get called by many worse hands.

PS1: Think the J7 hand was a good play.
PS2: Lol. A royal flush on a live video? Good for you man.

K3: Yes, I'd be calling any suited hand here getting good odds and closing the action.

99: 3bet would be fine pre. Villain did seem fairly tight preflop so far so I decided to call. On river there are possible 8x I'd expect to call every time and some weaker pairs like 77, 6x and potentially a hero call that I would expect to call often when the river whiffs everything. The biggest thing for me here is that I think it's extremely unlikely our hand is beat given his line so even if we're not getting called a ton with the river bet I think the risk is very low.

KQ: In this spot he can be snapchecking a bunch of hands. Flushes, pairs, sets, air, basically anything other than the nuts in my opinion. I don't think I read too much in to the turn check but mostly focused on the fact may hands would snapcall a river bet.

AQ: I don't really have a problem with checking this hand at any point against a tough opponent. Having some nut flush draws in your checking range is a good thing. Against an unknown though, with one of the strongest hands I'll have on this turn I think betting and building a pot is the right way to go. I would be more likely to check back some weaker hands like A7hh or most pairs below TP. Another small consideration is that when I hold the Qs, the number of flush draws, as well as QJ and QT bluffs will be reduced.

Hey, good to see another vid! I find these really helpful.

The AKs cold four bet pot around 38 mins is interesting, cause I'm trying to work on how to play my range in these spots, and how to split my range up.

When you cbet small, are you basically do that with your whole range, just like when you bet small in position on dry boards? If so, I'm assuming it's because you have such range advantage. But the board was still fairly wet. Overall though, I guess a K high board hits our range best.

On the turn, I assume you were planning on check calling to a smaller sizing. I suppose actually your range is very snug here (would you work bluffs in to this spot?), but would you barrel anything in the turn? Or just check even aces, and obviously AK.

I'm basically trying to think better about three and four bet pots, especially whether we can pretty much range bet out of position on certain boards because we have range advantage, but also then how we play turns. A problem I've had is not putting enough good hands in my check call range in the turn (like AK in this spot), making almost all my turn checks give ups. So you can see how I would be exploited because of it.

Hopefully that makes a bit of sense! And thoughts much apprciated.

Thanks.

When cbetting in the 4bet pot I choose the small sizing for a couple of reasons. First because I do think I will have an advantage on this texture, though against some players that is not guaranteed. Some players do flat the cold 4bet with AK (as seen here) as well as AA and sometimes KK so if both players have all the nut hands in their range then it becomes much closer and villain might even have a higher EV due to position. Against players who just shove all their QQ+, AK that will not be the case.

Second reason is because in a 4bet pot the SPR is really low. You can get all the money in very easily by betting small so in a way there's not much "need" to bet huge. Also in low SPR pots, implied odds of hands like, for example, AQ on this board go down so it will be more difficult for them to continue. This makes it harder for villain to defend a large percentage of his range even against small bets.

I'll definitely have barrels on the turn. My range is pretty snug to begin with so it will never be super wide. I would prefer to barrel hands like TT, AA because not only are they stronger hands, but they don't include blockers to villain's Kx hands like AK does and therefore will get called more often when bet.

There are many spots in 3 and 4bet pots where you can just bet your range on the flop and turns are definitely more complicated. Best advice I can give if you're not checking any strong hands... start checking strong hands Smile.

At 13:35 with Ah4h, do you fold on a river 5h? Do you fold on a river offsuit 4? Thanks.

I would call on both of those rivers. They will both increase my hand strength enough that I will likely be ahead of some hands villain is value betting (KJ, other flushes and for an offsuit 4x, QQ/TT) and of course his bluffs.

Additionally, I don't think folding your weakest Ax to the jam is overfolding, or if it is I don't think it's by much. Folding flushes and full houses would be dramatically overfolding. Using the 4x river as an example, folding A4 and worse would mean folding every flush, straight, 3 of a kind and folding the A4 full house, leaving only the AQ and AT combos that were called preflop as a call.
