    Nice honest video. Good to see that you did post the unsuccessful match against the first guy. That said, few of your reads seemed to be correct, and he may actually have owned you. My guess is that this guy merges and randomizes his play quite a bit, so even if you know he c-bets or check-raises a given frequency, it's hard to tell what those ranges look like. I dislike your 77 play against the second guy, where you bet-shoved the 569 2-tone flop. You hardly ever get it in good, and you're often crushed. My play is to call, and utilize position: if he checks a flush card, you can try to bluff him off of his A9 type hand, and on non-flush turns you can shove, which is very efficient against flush draws. Shoving the flop only makes things easy for him.

    Really liked the video. Live sessions are my favorite because it actually shows how you are thinking at the giving time. But yeah great vid, you just ran pretty bad in this but the thinking level, thought process, etc. Is great! Thanks for posting.

    Yeah, I agree that he did a very good job merging his ranges for a player that defended as wide as he did.  I'm still not convinced that he was playing well rather than just running pretty hot.

    I definitely agree that flatting the 7s on the flop is a fine line.  If I do flat the flop, it's unlikely I would turn my hand into a bluff though.  I agree that shoving the flop makes things easy for him, although I'm okay with the play if I think he won't bluff many turn cards and anticipate his range to be mostly complete air (overs) and draws.
