James:Watched ur vid... comments...in order of appearance, paused vid as actions happenedThe 55 is a snap fold... your position is strong and you're 3bet by a tight/short player. Yes the fish is in but you're not getting paid off nearly enough when you spike a set, which is the only way you should expect to win the potI watched you steal from the button with J-7 and then fold J-6... why? They're virtually the same handThe J-6 hand in the BVB your decision to fold shouldn't be based on kicker... the only time a kicker would come into play is if it gave you a draw as well (which would make the flop a raise)You make a comment about the 9-8o folding from the button "if it was suited I would call". He has a wide range and a fold to 3-bet of 50. If it was suited you should 3betWith the pocket sixes you iso'd the fish too small... if your open is 35cents (which is fine) add the 1bb... he's a fish, he's out of position, and you has a pair... get value. When you're donkbet hard on such a wet board beating everything in his range but top pair, you should take a raise/fold line on the flop, and re-evaluate the turn if called. Given that pot size I'd raise to about $2. And no, I think peeling is your worst option... folding is better than peeling.The 10-9s vs the aggro... freaking 3bet it pre. Since you flatted pre I actually prefer flatting the bet on the flop since we have multiway action. That board is going to get barrelled twice by his range a lot, and we'd certainly like the other player to bloat the pot and potentially add more money... also, since you have the 9 you're not afraid of hands like KQ... since if KQ spikes the 9 that's instamoney. Turn is good.The A2 hand that is going on at the same time as the T9 I like raising vs the limper. Your ace high is good right now very often... we can take the pot down now, and we will take a lot of money flopping air and c-betting. It's a small pot vs a fish so don't worry to greatly about position.I see you stacked him with the T-9... sweet.... i still play it different :)Ew fold 7-3s from the button... i raise a bagillion things from the button but at least have a high card or them connected in some wayDon't check K8s in the BB to a complete from the SB.ZOMG freaking steal with K-8o from the sb don't muck itJ-4 is ok to steal with BVB... you has a face card so you're ahead of most hands. It's hard to play post flop though so folding isn't terrible.The KJ hand check it down... you're not folding out any of his range you don't already beat. I see he folded, but I guarantee if he folded your king jack high was good.OMFG RAISE THE MONSTER DRAW ON THE FLOP... turn is fine... on the river you need to value bet half the pot... lulz way to chop with the flopped nuts.Raise J-9o from the cutoff since you have an aggro player on the button (it's a fold if there's a passive player)The AKs is a 4bet because you have an aggro player and you raised from a steal position. Just because he fold doesn't mean it's a 3bet bluff... it just means he could have been doing it wider (which is proper) with like 66 through 99, A9s, ATs, AJo, KQ, KJs, and so on.3bet the nit button open with 65o plzCalling the QTs on the button isn't bad, but I'd prefer a squeeze there.The dueces hand is fine until the turn... you need to be mashing the pot button there... the only hands he's folding there are hands he wasn't folding to any bet size so get max value.EW gross runners. In this spot I actually don't prefer check/folding. You do still have a boat... so you still beat some draws. I'd prefer a blockerbet/fold (something retarded like 40 cents). I really doubt anybody at 10NL is capable of bluff raising you there.No... you should iso with the A8s... you were correct with your first thought. OMFG don't fold once you limp with it... what is wrong with u? :)with the KQo hand vs the UTG raise... your decision should be between 3betting and folding not calling and folding.Again... you can steal with 10-2o sb vs bb... the player is tight enough for you to muck KQo to his UTG raise... why isn't he tight enough to steal from with ATC?The A4s isn't really a decision vs the 3bet CO vs BB... idc what type of player he is... the only time to continue with it is to 4bet bluff it... and you just don't 4bet bluff at 10NLOMFG 3bet AJo vs the CO openA fold isn't terrible with those 3bet queens VS UTG. There's almost no merrit to shoving there. I'd probably have called... but calling and folding there are nearly equal in value.Now... you 3balled ATs (which i agree with) big blind vs button... but why not the AJo? They're the same hand what the godCheck all ace high boards OOP in 3bet pots with 100% of your range.Ok, once you're minraised... since you have a pair... none the less top pair, you definitely need to call. Also, you should call all turn bets that aren't a pot button mash... then c/f to river barrels.Don't open up 75s from the highjack... I do this crap as well and it's a slow leak to death I promise. From the CO it's standard but highjack is one position too early.With the pocket 2's you easily, easily a) have the odds to set mine B) have an aggro enough player where 3betting is profitable. You don't have to win a whole stack every time you flop a set there... you're calling .20 cents to possibly win $10. Even if you only stack him one in 4 times you flop a set you will see profit (due to the other bets you pick up the other times you flop a set). Remember... you only have to win $1.60 more there every time you flop a set to break even. It's $1.60 bc you need 10:1 on your money to break even, there is 40 cents in the pot, and it costs 20 cents to call.Ok... the call with the J9s is correct bc ur vs an UTG raise... but again... vs the CO from an aggro player, you should 3bet T9s.Bet the turn for half the pot (fold to c-r) in the J-9 hand. The original raiser is unlikely to want to continue, you keep yourself from having to bet/call anything else unless improved on the river. You charge draws something. And you can get some thiiiin value. LOL at the results of that... and yeah it's an autocall on the river.Kings hand... personally... I pot all monotone board with any c-bet.Decent vid... I think you're missing some +EV spots though

Just got slow rolled by some random with aces, time to take an automatic weapon to the nearest crowded public space.
"Mixing it up" doesn't magically rationalize anything you do. It's like you walk up to a pencil sharpener, pencil in hand, and think, "Everyone expects me to sharpen this pencil, but I'm going to mix it up." Then you whip out your cock and sharpen that instead and yell, "Ha ha, bitches, you never saw that coming!" Well, no, they didn't. But you still have a dull pencil and bleeding dick.
