  • My apologies if you found my latest video to be terrible. I'll work on improving my craft. Please let me know what you'd like to see more of and specifically what you didn't like.

    All the best,

      Thanks Dave, I think that if you watched this video over again, which you probably have already, I'm pretty sure that with some self reflection you could certainly conclude that this one was way inferior to your previous analysis and content on many of your other video's. I don't wish to appear disrespectful, but I consider that your messages/points were often unclear, convoluted and your comments/analysis were heavily based on the visible hole cards. Had you not seen the hole cards of the players, I think your though processes and conclusions would have been quite different and should you have been the hero or one of the villains in the hand, your hand reading, read interpretation and decision making would have been rather different. It was a while now since I watched this video and to be honest I don't want to watch it again, but one spot that springs to mind was that one heads up hand you said that the player was polarised, he made a huge preflop raise, which from memory was on the button with what you said was with a range that was totally polarised, he either had a huge hand or nothing and in that case he did actually have nothing. Why couldn't the raiser be playing a depolarized range A9 or 89s 55 which has better equity than 93o, J4s, 72s? Is this not a classic example where in this exact spot, that you assume that a player plays the way you do by having exactly nuts or nothing? I think that yourself and Bart don't pause to consider and discuss enough, what a decent opponent thinks the range of a player is when he/she makes a particular action and how this perceived range has a bearing on the next players action ie looking at hand reading from the other or multiple players perspectives as the hand plays out, at higher levels. I hope I have explained myself clearly enough and that this helps, best regards, Ian

      PS, there were also hands discussed where you omitted to mention the effective stacks.
