Default Fun HU video...

A regular poster at another forum that I frequent wanted to have a grudge match (light hearted, but we get in lots of arguments so it was fitting).... Sooo, we both recorded it. It turned out to be a pretty entertaining video if you ask me...

It's a $150 freezeout at $50nl (two tables). I actually ended up screwing him over because I got stacked and the auto-reloaded fooled both of us into thinking I had still have $10 left... but it was totally by accident. Obviously I go on to make a huge comeback and take it down (though we did pay like $24 in rake)...

78 minutes long, 72mb in size... I used TechSmith codec, and MPEG layer-3 audio --- let me know if you have trouble playing it.


Comments on my play are always welcome. If/when he posts his half of the video I'll put that in here as well.

I plan to watch and comment on this eventually also. Someone else at work ate up all the megaupload bandwidth yesterday.

Around 1:45 in on the right table, you fold TPGK after villain 3bets your flop c/r. I think I would have gone to the felt with that hand--you c/red him on both tables, so I expect him to think you're FOS, but you happened to have TPGK on 1 table and top 2 on the other. I think he could be 3betting with worse hands and draws.

Around 5:15 in on the left table, I like the passive line you took with 2nd pair with AJ.

At 17:30 on the right table, where you have Q9ss on the J54ss board and he 3bets your flop c/r, I think it's a fold, although it's close. You need 40% equity to break even on the call. I think this range for villain is pretty good, but tell me if you think it's off:

Board: Js 5s 4d
equity win tie pots won pots tied
Hand 0: 34.355% 34.35% 00.00% 15305 0.00 { Qs9s }
Hand 1: 65.645% 65.65% 00.00% 29245 0.00 { JJ+, 55-44, AsKs, AJs, AsTs, As8s, As7s, As6s, As4s, As3s, As2s, 7s6s, AJo }

I'm 19 minutes in, and so far you've only 3bet a really tight value range, and you've made your 3bets huge--popping his 1.25 opens to 4.75 or 5. I would be 3betting more frequently and to a smaller size, like 4.25.

It was much better with 2 tables. I'm not sure why y'all didn't just play 2 tables and use PT or HEM to determine when someone went up 150.

And why are you shortstacking 33 minutes in? Is this another aspect of the weird rules for your freezeout?

37:30 in, it obviously worked out well because villain spewed to double you up, but I don't think calling the 3bet with KJs shortstacked is that good.

39:30 in, this is the 2nd time I've seen you pass up a cbet on a dry, A-high flop. I don't know why you're doing this, since villain has barely been raising your cbets at all.

46 minutes in, as you mention in the commentary, you seem to be paying more attention to chatting than to playing.

1 hour 7 minutes in, the 9T hand, I think I like a river shove. Villain's hand is pretty face up as a pair between the 6 and the K. You're ahead of 77, 88, and 99. You lose to TT, JJ, and QQ, but TT is less likely because you have a T, and JJ and QQ are less likely because he would have 4bet them at least some of the time preflop. He's shown that he doesn't really like folding postflop, so stick him in.

1:13:45 in, I can't believe you folded the AAA. You were planning to shove the river, right? Of course he calls with worse--your hand is so underrepped there.

Overall, I think you have an edge on villain, but probably not enough to beat the rake at this level, especially when you're not fully focused on the game. Good win though.
