My gift to 2p2! 100NL video

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=DWTLPY3A

Merry Christmas everyone!! I hope this doesn't suck!!
All comments and questions are welcome. Thanks to ranka and Split Suit for helping me out with the kinks.

Jesus, it's still huge. Ugh. 340 megs isn't normal, I think.

DLing now....

An hour is pretty long so the 340 isn't too unreasonable, the setting make a lot of difference in production quality and filesize fwiw. I made a 36 min AVI vid earlier and it was slightly over 100mb. Did you use camtasia?

Yeah, I've been tweaking the bitrate settings, audio quality and other shizz, so hopefully the next one I do will be smaller. (just finished it, so I should know soon)

Re: My gift to 2p2! 100NL video

Okay this should be better. It's not as interesting as the first, IMO, but still decent, I think. Plus it's a lot smaller!!

Re: My gift to 2p2! 100NL video

I'm taking down the first vid and replacing it after I got it down to about 230MB. (Still big, but much more manageable, imo) Plus it's about 1:10 long.

This is the first vid I made last night

Re: My gift to 2p2! 100NL video

OK, comments from the first video:

As predicted, I don't like your call of the min bet with your set. I have no problem slow playing on a dry board against someone with an obvious hand who will fire again on the turn, however in this spot I think a raise is better. A min bet here either means villain has a monster and wants you to raise, or a weakish hand that is scared of the ace. If it's the latter, you're never getting value from him, but if its the former you want to raise so you can "fall into his trap". Also, flat calling on the flop and raising the turn looks super strong, so unless he really does have something you aren't going to get much value. If you raise the flop, he might feel like you are "sensing weakness" and look you up.

On the KQ two pair hand after the flush comes in, I probably don't bet the turn. I feel like you can still get the same value from a K on the river (more, in fact, since you'll have looked weak) and I don't think you're going to want to 3 barrel into that board. After he c/r you I don't think the fold is nitty at all. He most certainly got there.

Now on the other table folding KQ to a minraise by a 42/12 IS nitty

The JJ hand vs the 2+2er is interesting. With what frequency to you think his is 3betting you with AK? If you think 3betting with AK is his default play, I'd probably be lead/folding the flop, and certainly leading the turn once you pick up the flush draw. As played I think you probably have to fold, but I think it was too passive vs. someone you say "will 3bet with AK".

On the QQ vs. the short stack I agree with your play, including the smaller than normal re-raise. However, after he pushed you did seem to consider the call a bit. Against this stack size you should realize that your raise is putting him to a stack decision and you should know what you are going to do before you 3bet. Of course, your comments might have been for the sake of the video, but my thoughts before the 3bet would have been "he's short, I'm going to 3bet and commit against him, if he pushes then I will call- if he flats I am probably shoving most non-ace flops."

You folded AJ to an open limp from a 40/10 in EP. I am usually raising here because your hand is way better than his limping range and there is a ton of value to be had if you can isolate him. It sucks when someone flats behind you, but this kind of player is worth taking that kind of a risk to isolate, I think. You talk about the gap concept, but I don't think it really applies here with this kind of a player. He is waaay looser than you, has displayed weakness by limping, and you'll have position on him.

So those are my thoughts- hope I don't sound overly critical; just trying to be helpful. I enjoyed the vid and it was cool to hear how someone else approaches the game and what your thought processes are.

Re: My gift to 2p2! 100NL video

The xVid codec should do the trick, fatpipe and Ron. Sandviper, howdy! This is on FTP.
Jeff, thanks a lot for your post! The AJ fold is much more about the players left to act than the open-limper, TBH, though I understand where you're coming from. In the KQ hand, we agree on the nittiness, at least, but I've been seeing people show up with the goods in these spots pretty often recently. (I'm not sure if this is the vid where I ask about how running bad can affect the thought process, but I think this is a good example).

The JJ hand was a tough one for me because I've been in similar spots with that villain before. I felt that his checking behind on the flop was more a show of strength than if he'd just led out and tried to take the pot down. Also, my original raise was from UTG or UTG+1 (if not mistaken), and for the most part, my range is pretty tight from that early on, so I actually weighed his range heavier on QQ+. If I'd made that raise from say...MP2 and gotten three bet, I probably would've called a street or 2 post-flop, or min4bet pre.

As for the QQ hand against the shortie, on paper it's a def snap-call, but again, running bad can cloud the thought process. LOL Glad you enjoyed the vids and thanks for watching them!

Re: My gift to 2p2! 100NL video

The 230mb file titled 'my 1ist 100NL vid.wmv' works fine for me in both WMP11 and VLC. I'd really have liked to see the 4th table in use instead of you sitting on the wait list for at least half the video. I'm only halfway through right now but it does play just fine.

Re: My gift to 2p2! 100NL video

Thanks Cybr. TBH, I was pissed about that too, but in all honesty, that was like...the 4th attempt to make a vid that night and I really wanted to have something up by Christmas (and I was starting to lose my nerve lol) In the other vid, all 4 tables get played! OMG!

In the hand with AKs where you check behind on the flop and turn and then fold to a river bet over the potsize I think your reasoning for checking behind on the flop here is off. You want to be betting on flops like this, especially ones where you are headsup, only really have backdoor draws and overcards and your opponents range is pretty predictable (pocket pairs imo). As the board gets scarier I think it's less likely he's checking to you with a set because of the relative ease with which you can outdraw him (the turn card is probably one of the worst in the deck for someone with a set). I agree with folding to the river bet but I really think you should have been putting more pressure on him earlier in this hand and chose not to do so for the wrong reasons.
