5 PostsNice vid again Adam. Thanks. About 4-5 min in you make a cold 4bet w A2o 3 handed. 3bet is 140 and you go 320. Interested in your thoughts on this sizing. Part of an overall gameplan? Only oop? Do we proceed differently(opposed to a 425ish size) when villain flats? Did you run math on this strategy? I know its kinda big question. Just the broad ideas. See it alot in games these days. Maybe im getting old ;) About 8-10 min in you make the 4bet to 285 w J8o when BB overcalled min 3bet. you make a 375 one and done bet on 525r flop. Obv very player dependant spot. Being able to ship river when checked to is a nice play to have in this spot i think.

28 Postsre: AJs on AT9KK around 11:00... You elect to call twice and fold river because you don't think he'll be bluffing very often on that card. This is a spot I struggle with, but I think your line is likely good against most regs. I do think a spot like this raises some interesting questions about bluffing and calling frequencies. Given that this is a "bad" bluffing card (meaning, I think, better for your range than his), game theory-wise you ought to be more likely to call. But, if I understand your thought process correctly, you're actually less likely to call because you think he won't bluff. This seems like a good strategy in a world where many regs bluff "bad" runouts near 0% and "good" runouts near 100% (for example your barrel off with A9s on T43JQ). From a game theory perspective you should bluff "good" cards more often -- but not always -- and "bad" cards less often -- but not never. There might be some possibilities for exploitation here. For example, someone could probably do well by occasionally throwing in the random bluff against you in a "bad"-looking spot.

In the video you mentioned that calling with small pairs against thinking players is a leak.
I myself struggling to see if it is profitable to raise/call with small pairs. If I open with 33s in a cut-off and get 3bet either on the btn or sb/bb I try to see if I have more than 10:1 odds to try to flop the set and stack the villain.
The problem that I see is I fold when I miss and villains are not willing to stack off when I do flop the set.
Limp calling seems weak and folding pairs pre seems to make no sense.
What do you think is a good line?

Never is not an accurate statement. We run videos in a backlog so these were created a month or so ago. During that time, unfortunately, Adam has had some unfortunate circumstances come up requiring his travel back and forth between the UK and Costa Rica... Sorry for the delayed response but I am certain that Adam will get back to these questions as soon as he has a chance.
