Video overview.

Another set of hand histories where Hero's 3bet gets called and we have to play some post flop poker. There are two squeezes, two 3bets for value, and one light 3bet.

A lot of the analysis in these hand histories takes place on the later streets, so it's a great vid if you're happy with your flop play after 3betting, but tend to struggle on the the turn and river.

I can't think of anything else to add. I'll just list some of the highlights:

  • Hand 1 - Is there any value in betting Ad 2d on 6d 7d As flop? What does your bet accomplish? If you're betting for value, can you name three worse hands that could continue?
  • Hand 2 - Getting raised by a nit-TAG with As Ks on a Ts 2h Td Kh board. Can you call?
  • Hand 3 - Betting for some value after hitting top pair on the river after every round went check-check. Then villain raises.
  • Hand 4 - Analyzing the viability of a squeeze against 4 other players by checking out their HUD stats.
  • Hand 5 - Explanation (including visualization) of why certain type of players are good to 3bet light based on their stats.

Quotes

"If you're betting for value, can you name three worse hands that could continue?"
"2SPR or lower is super easy with KK+, but less so with JJ/AK."
"If the pot odds aren't right, we should start looking at implied odds."
