**Video 4 table 50nl**

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=18RY0J2C

I compressed it as much as I can its 210ish MB. Check the other threads for codecs and whatever, its in .avi form. I run like 20/17 during the video and get QQ about every other hand. I'm going to bed now so I'll check in the morning (probably afternoon imo) to see if there are any technical problems. Feel free to criticize as I am far from perfect. There are a few interesting spots I think, besides my standard run good.

As a new FR player I was looking for some recent FR material, so you're timing is great. Will be downloading and watching during breakfast!

Do you narrate it? I prefer videos where the player is voicing their thought processes from hand to it. Makes it easier to offer feedback .

I can't get enough of FR videos. 2 Suggestions. Get rid of avatars, easier for the eyes, also, always sit on the same seat, easier to follow that way.

Is there audio or am I missing a codec?

Re: **Video 4 table 50nl**

DLing now.

BTW, when I test drive Camtasia and try to talk, I just go on massive tilt. The few times Ive tried, it really throws off my game to be thinking about what to say (and maybe more importantly, what NOT to say) and thinking about the hands at the moment.

I did one two weeks ago that was hilarious. I kept the mike off throughout, then added commentary after. Seemed sooooooooo contrived, but I LOOKED so good when saying stuff like,

"OMG, this guy is trying to river bluff me with a FD that didn't hit"

(sitting on queens and folding PF after a shortie pushed and someone else just "smoothed called" ) "Well, I think the smooth call is aces so Im out. Glad we get to showdown so we can see what the full-stacked smoothie has....."

My favorite was after flopping a set and getting to a sizeable showdown. Throughout the play Im commenting on how villain would think Im putting a move on him with AK. After the hand, villain commented "I though you had AK."

Any suggestions other than to keep talking and trying to smooth it out in the moment?

Good video, as a total nit I learned alot. My favorite part..

"It looks like two guys kissing"

Worst part...

"I don't steal with 83"



Thanks for doing this.

Re: **Video 4 table 50nl**

lol I flop pretty good. The key is matching up some of the cards on the board with some of the cards in your hand in some way! :P It's different to talk while playing, the only issue I have is I'll start rambling about something when I haven't gotten a hand for awhile, and then I'll keep rambling while playing a hand without explaining my reasoning for the hand.

Re: **Video 4 table 50nl**

Outside of your flopping and refusing to give queens back to the dealer, the two hands that really struck me were:

The J9 hand that you flopped two pair and got CR on the turn.
-When you decide to call the turn CR, are you pretty much saying you're calling most river bets?

The A8 hand from SB that you raised after only UTG limped.
-What types of hands are you raising in that spot to balance the monsters?

Re: **Video 4 table 50nl**

Okay, a couple of points about the vid:

a) Is there any special technique to make your voice sound as sexy as it does?

b) Tune down on the arrogance. The guy who made the min 3 bet and called you with KK is a cash piñata I aim for every session so please, be less offensive

c) LOOOOOOL @ YOUR AVATAR RAID!!! Man, nothing pisses me off more than a stupid baby avatar or a couple like the one you pointed out

d) Good vid

Re: **Video 4 table 50nl**

The J9 hand, once I call the c/r, I am planning to call any reasonable sized river bet. This actually a spot where I will raise out of the blinds, since there is a weak button limper and SB completes. The A8 hand probably was not the best situation with the limper being UTG. I raise a lot of broadway hands QJ kind of hands from the blinds, sometimes SC.

To make your voice sexy...
Step 1- Go through puberty
Step 2- ?????
Step 3- Profit.

I don't understand why people put pictures of themselves as avatars.

Re: **Video 4 table 50nl**

Thank you, got the vid working. Very nice, I think from now on I'm going to steal more from LP, especially rape from the button. Play more agressivly on BB when SB limps. You also said that you play NL100 and NL200? How do you compare NL100 to NL50? Is NL100 very hard to beat considered to NL50? Looking forward to next vid.

Re: **Video 4 table 50nl**

Do you have a minimum number from the "fold sb/bb" stat that you use when deciding to steal?

When open raising loose from the HJ, is this dependant on the two players behind you in the Cu and Bu both being tight?


If you get a call after raising a limper from the Bu and you decide to check a missed flop. Will you bet on the turn if checked to again?

Since you sometimes check behind in these spots, do you also check sometimes when you hit?

Re: **Video 4 table 50nl**

I play 100 and 200. There have been thousands of threads on the differences between 50 and 100. Honestly it's overkill and the levels are not that different. You will get 3bet more and face more aggression. The regs are certainly exploitable and there are plenty of fish. I noticed I could steal blinds a lot more playing 50 during the video than I usually can at 100. That was the main thing I was hoping ppl would get from the video, opening up their game in LP. Naturally you do not have to be as LAG as I was, I don't usually play 20/17 either, but as long as you start to notice situations with 1 limper on the button where you don't have to make a nitty fold or a weak limp.

I used to have fold sb/bb stat on my hud, but it got too cluttered and although this doesn't apply to everyone, but when I had it up there, low VPIPs usually meant less blind defense. The same was NOT true for attempt to steal, which is why I keep that on the HUD. It's just a case of my screen not being as cluttered. I will not raise in the HJ with 76s A2s kind of hands if I have a pretty loose person in CO or button. Of course this depends on observation too. If the loose player likes to limp and folds to many preflop raises, then I can raise more hands from the HJ even though he is loose. Your last few questions are pretty broad but, if I have AK on a Kxx flop, depends on the player I will check behind sometimes. This works a lot more in 100 as the game is naturally more aggressive so if I check behind, villain bets any turn quite frequently since I checked behind on the flop. A lot of it is villain and board dependent.
