    Great video. My friend and I watched it together and got into a big discussion about reverse implied odds on the first hand post flop by just trying to get into the thought process of Weidnan and deeb and giving each other our perspective of what we think about our equity/standing in the hand was if we were in that spot.

    Usually with David's videos we pause the action as soon as he does then we discuss then listen to David discuss.

    Thumbs up!

    Thank you for the complimentary words. I definitely thought that the first hand where a couple people flopped draws in a multi-way pot was very interesting because it is a common scenario where people often mid-play draws.

    also noticed on the second hand, when the flop action gets paused on Richardson, Matt Affleck looks just like Ben Affleck. It cracked us up for a few minutes :cool:

    Great video. I really enjoyed your commentary and your thought process about the hands as they develop.

    Were we supposed to be able to hear the table talk? I think that would have been helpful too if we could hear the actual dialogue between the players

    Hello David,
    I want to ask you about 1st Hand Turn Play.I think its pretty important that we consider effective stack sizes.For the particular hand its probable that Russel has under one pot size bet given the straddled pot and flop action so i agree that he should probably just shove and get value from worse.whats our play if we are facing a same spot with 2 very good regs and deeper stacks ( SPRs 3 to 5 ) ...do we plan to b/f (not best option if the regs behind are capable of shoving combo draws , in my opinion) or c/c (to induce worse vbets but we lose a ton of equity share when the regs see a free card ...
    Any insight would be highly appreciated ...

    Yeah, I am not sure why I couldn't get any higher volume for you to hear the table talk more quickly. In the CLP video, the table talk does sound somewhat muted. That is probably something that someone more technology savvy than myself could have figured out.

    Sorry about that.

    It is a tough spot if we had a very vulnerable 2pair hand with deep stacks behind against 2 strong regs. This is probably why over-calling 9-rag suited out of the blinds against a tough pro PFR and tough pro flatting the BTN is probably a big mistake.

    In general, if you think that value betting 2 pair on this turn against great deep-stacked players is a mistake (too thin because for reasons that you stated), then we should focus on not getting ourselves into this spot in the first place. That usually means playing tighter in the blinds preflop when facing tough Villains already in the hand.
