First hand: U said that villain should 3barrel his entire range on that board. Did u say this because of his imaige, or do u think its overall a good strategy? To me it just seems like we are going to be bluffing way to much. And on some runouts were the turn is like a K or sth, bascically a high card, people just always think u are gonna bluff it so barreling off with to high of a freq doesn't seem optimal to me. What do u think?
19 min ~ When u get checked to on that particular river, when so much gets there. With that i mean that all his gutshots, openenders etc improved on that card i have a really hard time seeing that we are going to be good often at all otr. We are basically hoping he was barreling with sth that he actually had, and that he didn't bluff if on this runout that seems like a pretty good runout to bluff, since so much of his percieved barrelingrange got there. Do u agree with that? So what I'm getting to is that it seems better to turn our hand into a bluff then checking back. U were talking about it briefly, but i didn't really understand it 100% so thats why i'm asking. In his eyes on this river, it just feels like its pretty hard for us to be bluffing, we are gonna have bunch of 2pairs like 68,78,A8,A7, 1pair Ax, flushes etc. What do u think about betting river smallish, cuz it looks like we are vbeting (we don't polarize our range) with the intension of getting him off stuff like weak Ax,97,8x f ex. What do u think? Sry for this little essay!
23 min ~ Could you expand a little on why u like calling flop instead of raising, and why u like calling with the plan of folding turn? My first though when i saw the flop was that i really just wanted to bluffraise, heh. It just seems to me like we are gonna get barreled so often on this board that calling flop and folding turn seems like burning money? I understand what u mean though about not bluffraising cuz his range is a little stronger, he expects us to bluffraise a lot etc. But this seems like a pretty good hand for it, 2 overs and bdfd. Because we are gonna have a fair amount of valuecombos on this board. Thoughts?
46 min ~ What do u think about betting turn with the intension of overbetting river, to get him off his entire range? It feels like only betting turn issn't good since a fish is gonna peel turn there pertty damn wide i think, but not necessarily otr. Do u agree?
Great video man, as always. Looking forward to more videos from u! ty
Hey jjooeeyy sorry for not responding in so long on the J9 hand. I have been travelling and haven't been online in almost a few months. So his pfr was 14% from sb over 37 samples, which isn't the largest, but clearly he will rarely be opening a range of stronger than 35%. Also he seems not to be positionally aware because he opens around 15-16% from most positions. So based on this we can make a good assumption that he's sort of playing his cards, likely a lot of tables and more of a systematic approach. Because of this he will prob play pretty straight forward, and it's also the reason he could 3 barrel me to death in this spot if I was calling flops/turns too light. I mean even a lot of the stronger parts of our range have trouble calling down because they're often complete bluff catchers against this guy. Against other guys their ranges are wider they're bluffing more so they value bet wider which allows you to profitably call down so much more with TP, MP, A high type hands to 3 barrels in this spot. I guess to sum it up his range is rly strong, in spots your perceived range is strong against hand readers you should bluff like a maniac when your opponents range is weak (who would've thought that hehe). I know that's just obvious. However as a cautionary thing I recommend 3 barreling as a bluff when your range is strong against good players, not necessarily against fish or weak regs. If they don't realize how strong your range is then they may just call down so you'd want to bluff a bit less, choose good turn/river run outs where you feel you can rep a lot and he will be in a bluff catcher position with a lot of weak hands.
19 min ~ Yeah I should clarify against me I feel he'll bluff catch a lot we have history. I agree almost everything got there, but the problem is well.... people don't like folding to me. So like my perceived range actually against him, not everything got there. I mean we floated 75s for example haha, and I do believe he expects that. He can put us on like QJ, KQ floats or turned clubs, 2 pair etc. One worry also with bluffing is he can rebluff us off the best hand. For example that would be a great spot for him to c/r shove. We have so many 2 pair or str8's to vbet and we don't vbet weak aces on a river this bad since i'ts behind some of his checking range. So in his spot here I would c/r shove this river actually almost always. My range has so many more 2 pairs and str8's than flushes and his range looks so much like Ax or some type of semi bluff. Granted that's not a super huge worry, most players don't bluff enough and let you get to SD too much.
23 min ~ Basically again we're both laggy we have a lot of history etc. I think he will play tighter from the SB against me than other players so even if his SB v BB steal is high we have to lower that a bit, because A) he knows i'm not folding much B) I'm a competent player. If I sucked postflop or this wouldn't necessarily be the case. I think with your image a bluff raise would be great. Because I do expect him to vbet pretty thin, any TP, good 2nd pairs some 3rd pairs etc so it puts his range in a tough spot if he thinks you're not messing around much and your range is stronger. However against me he's never folding TP by the river even if I raise and bet/bet unless ofc the board runs out horribly, like 4 to str8 or some overs. However that doesn't even help us because he'll hit the str8 or 2 pair a ton so we can't even bluff 4 str8 rivers, he's protected. If he'd fold 2 pair ofc then we could bluff those, but I don't expect him to in this situation against me. So I guess these last 2 hands are more of an image thing. I'd advise you to just try to see how video makers are adjusting to opponents etc and why and try to incorporate that into your game. A lot of the correct plays for me will be a lot different than you if your image isn't like mine.
46 min ~ Yeah I like that idea of overbetting. His range is so obviously weak, we might as well not take any chances by betting more of a standard bet, fish can always bluff catch a certain % of the time if you bet too weak. Overbet is a great idea.
Thanks a lot, I haven't been playing too much lately, however soon I will be moving overseas to rly hit online hard so I'd like to make a vid after I get in some hands when my brain is fully sharp.
