    Can you please explain the call with qq108 single suited out of position. After you called, you were contemplating a check shove. What hands are you getting him to fold? Also, if he calls aren't you pretty much dead most of the time? I really didn't get this one. I normally fold that hand pre to a 3 bet.

    at 15:00 can you really bet/fold vs the short stack getting this price? WIth an SPR of one vs him it seems pretty bad, after betting you need ~23% equity and vs the tightest range really possible you have that: What is you standard deviation in bb/100 for 6max and HUPLO, and given this how likely are you to make plays that have to be pretty close to neutral ev like the QJ87ds cold 4bet/call off?

Otherwise I really agree with "womengetrespect" about this QQT8 hand.I can't see a profitable way to play this hand facing a 3bet out of position.What were ur plans when u decided to call? Thx

    I also do agree with “womengetrespect”. In general, is there a profitable 3bet cold calling range, out of position, 100 BB deep against two strong ranges (3bet from MP or CO)? Knowing that is very unlikely to face a 4bet, the double-paired hands should fit, but I can’t see much more.

    hey phil, hopefully youll take a moment to answer my "completely unrelated" poker question or give some thoughts on the issue. basically if you were to start playing poker from ssnl/msnl today (and had a very solid base of everything related to NLHE and know a thing or two of PLO), what would your approach on moving up vs masstabling smaller stakes be (sacrificing smaller edges a la folding 86o BVB to a SB open in order to maximize in bigger EV decisions on more tables while kind of capping your improvement as a player and possibly slowing down your moving up). i assume youd probably advise playing PLO too, how aggressively would you suggest someone who needs some base income but would also like to "make it to the top". i know when you first came up games were quite a bit softer, you took a bunch of aggro shots back and forward and always had the chance of finding HU action etc. but its no secret to anyone that its not quite the case anymore and good action is hard to come across, so basically what would your take on the entire moving up/improving/BR management be. game selecting higher stakes and playing less tables always while trying to improve every god damn day seems like the ideal route to go but its also kind of hard to bank a steady income like that given how its inevitable that at some point youll bounce back. long post but hopefully youll take a few minutes, thanks, good luck and good job on the sick upswing after the gross downer at 25-50 : p

    Are suits really that valuable? Early on, you open fold KKAJ with no suits from early position. Later in the video, in the exact same spot, you open raise with KKA5 with king high hearts. Is having a king high suit with a dangler really better than having the connected jack? I would open both hands, and I'm a tight player. I think suits, especially non nut suits, are hugely overrated. Thoughts? In holdem, QJo is a much better hand than Q2s, and I feel this is a similar analogy....

    Is it really standard to stack off with AJT2. I would think that all the hands that actually does hit that board( Qj2) our hand does poorly against. If its standard to stack off there, at what spr does the hand change into one you actually want to play turns with ?
