Thumbs up Re: 50NL video

Awesome video and great commentary!


A few quick questions for you.

1. SB vs. CO or BN steal - Are you calling a standard raise with small PP's here as long as you are getting correct set odds, or do you feel their range is too great to pay you off with?

2. SB completing - 2 part question for you. What is your *normal* SB stat, and

2b. Do you feel completing with hands that have some small value like Kxs, Qxs, 76o in at least 3 handed pots are leaks?

3. Finally, with a higher attempt to steal (I think you said yours was around 45%!), do you feel you need to make more double and triple barrel bluffs, or do you feel you're taking down the blinds enough to make hands like Kx, 75o, etc. profitable just from the steal attempt itself?

Thanks again, and I would love to see more videos from you!!!

Re: 50NL video

Thanks for the video! I know I'm a little late... please elaborate on any

8:05 Hmm... I 3bet or fold AQo and AJo almost always. Here I would definitely have 3bet because villain's opening in the HJ, and has a high CBet. If I don't take initiative now, I'm going to be confused (or at least in a spot) when he Cbets into me and I missed. I assume your move is probably optimal if you're very good postflop... but is ALWAYS 3bet or folding AJo/AQo a +EV strategy?

17:55 Same thing as above. I'm 3bet sqeezing here always. I feel like I'm losing too much to AK and not gaining anything when an ace hits from other hands, and I'm losing to aggression when I miss the flop. Still not sure though.

21:00 I'm folding that J9s, I feel like that's a wicked loose call. Damn I need to stop being so weak tight.

28:35 I'm confused with the A2 hand. I was surprised you floated the flop... it seems like that hand has NO showdown value to me, so it's a pure float, planning on taking it away later. I rarely pure float, maybe I'll have to integrate it into my game. I like the read that the donkbet on the flop is a weakish hand... it seems that with a dry board a set is often c/c or c/r rather than leading.

And of course LOL at looking up to see AA on two tables and laughing

Your opening range in middle position is much looser than mine, perhaps I should look into this.

I suppose I'll watch the second half tomorrow, thanks!

1. Probably 3bet or fold. Depends on the number of tables im playing.

2. Little higher than my VPIP, probably around 20%

2b. Probably. Playing K's and Q's OOP in limped pots is always a ***** for me.

3. Its def profitable to steal with that a high frequency at 50NL and below because people just offer you their blinds. When they do call, they mostly c/f the flop UI.

Thanks.

8:05 Position vs an LP opener? I'm going to call there for sure. 3 betting accomplishes nothing but folding out hands we want to extract value from postflop and keeps better hands in.

17:55 Same deal as above (except in this case I'm going to be extremely reluctant to 3 bet cause he's opening in EP and is 14/5 in the sample i have)

21:00 I wont. He has like 10x the amount I have to call left behind in his stack plus the other guy will call the 3 bet for sure in case I do... plus I'm rarely dominated. It's really close though, if there wasnt the other guy in the pot already I'd fold for sure.

28:35 Ofc it was just a float, I'm rarely ahead there.

Not to mention that his high 3-bet frequency is a good reason for flating and very exploitable... we should be raising a TON of flops against him.

Haven't watched the video yet but it's on my to do list and looking forward.

Yeah, since we have position it will be very easy to outplay him postflop cause that particular player is very str8 forward. (in this specific hand he just c/f because he doesnt hit)

21:00 CRUCIAL HAND, imo. I watched this, hoping speedle would call, since I feel we have the kind of hand we'd like to play against two people...especially donks. Also agree if other guy isn't there, it's a fold.

Re: 50NL video

Thanks a lot! I really enjoyed this video. I picked up on some good strategy, for example, 50nl is easy when you run like God haha jk, i like your style. It's a lot like mine, and I've found that 50nl is a great place for it. Players who think a 9/7 style is ample at 50nl need to watch this video.
