    Great video. The last hour's a little slow..... :) You might want to go back and trim out that run-on. When I saw it was a nearly two hour video, I got kinda worried and almost didn't watch it. The first hour's pretty good, though. It's very similar, of course, to Alan's earlier series, but it's great to see someone going through the process of assimilating the information.

    Sorry guys- The video should end at 51:30. Anything after that is replaying Amateur to Pro pt1. I am working to get this remedied. RYAN

    Sorry about that guys. Probably my fault, I was rendering the videos one after the other before I uploaded them I bet I got two put together.

    Hi dishyish, Internet is easy in most places. I would rent an apartment, but your options are limited if you only sign for 3 months. Most have grindable internet but it can be spotty. We also have 3G here, which is very grindable. 18 usd/ month no contract. If you have an iphone/ipad you can use that, but you can also buy a modem to use w/ the 3G. Some places you can install your own DSL. I've not played golf in many years, but I'd go to a driving range with you and embarrass myself.

    Another solid video. I think there could have been some more talk on the merits of flatting QQ+ and AK with some frequency from the blinds. There are aggressive opponents who will make life extremely tough when big cards come on the flop, and I've found that by flatting a hand like AK around 1/4 times or more, you can get them to blow off a lot of money repping the ace you have on ace high boards. Or you can flop two overs and a gut shot, check call flop, and watch them fire two more barrels when you turn top pair and they suspect you flopped a jack and are just being stubborn on the turn. If an opponent is proving very tricky and aggressive IP, this can make you some money and add deception. They might not want to pick on you as much. That said, its not my STANDARD, but you can do it a third of the time with some of these hands and smile at the huge pots you win with one pair that maybe would have ended preflop or on the flop if you took initiative from them.

    great video, although it is similar to the first video, there's still a lot of different points.

    small pp's missing on flop

    When we cold call with a pp's < 8's do we usually fold to a c-bet or raise when the board is not connecting or draw heavy?
