    I'm having fun doing these and I really think they are quite valuable. If you guys are enjoying the "adjustments" video series, let me know and I might do more in the future.

    Thanks

    Most 1-2 games play just like this video series. The game relies mostly on the luck factor and it's hard to get people to fold hands. It's very difficult to continue betting on every street when 5 people are always calling you down. They basically just want to gamble with any 2 cards.

    Hey david good video. i play a 2 5 game with a buy in of 500 - 2k, so players are a little bit better. And a lot of the things you talk about on this video really apply to my game in a daily basis. A question that pop into my head when i was watching the video because i get stuck with this situation in my game way too often.
    on the last hand of the video, heros was in position with AQs and bet into two other players on a board of A:c: 2:c: 10:d:, he bet and one villain called.
    turn 9:c:
    you said you would bet on the turn if it was checked to you, and i do agree. you can definitely get value from worse and a little bit of hand protection in this spot. But what happened if the role is reversed? What if you are out of position? you bet the flop as the pre flop raiser and you cbet the flop and same villain called. And the turn is the flush card. Do you check in this spot as your default?

    in the first hand the action on the turn was check call, and you sad bet-snap call again who offcourse changes all the action and making even least sense what you are saying so i stop seeing the video right away. thanks for saving me time

    Fantastic! The way to really think about poker. So very, very few talk about it this way and I agree with you David, that adjusting is an underrated skill which if one can learn becomes a huge advantage. Thanks for taking the time and giving of yourself. :) Definitely would like to see much more of this.

    Hey David , i think u have mistaken a river action,on 38:30 mark you say that Greg is the one that moves AI but from the graphics it looks like Jen is the one who leads AI . Regarding the same hand , on the turn , do u think the fact that Greg has lost a big pot may result in wider raising ranges ? (K8,KT,AdXd) ? U said that generally some ppl tend to slow down after losing big pots or tilt and play more aggro but we havent seen a showdown since Greg lost so we cant really know how he adjusted ....

    That'll happen occasionally. My apologies. That said, I think you are doing yourself a disservice. Plenty of really good information in this video series

    Hi David. I think this is a great video series. I am looking forward to more of this type of commentary. Will you do these kinds of videos with higher stakes games with better players?

    sorry, it took me so long to answer your question.

    Not sure you're going to love my answer, but it depends...

    who is your opponent? I can still imagine getting called by worse and if my opponent isn't very tricky, my default would be to bet more often than not. Again, the question I ask my self is can I get called by worse? How likely is it that I will get called by worse? Most likely, in a heads-up scenario, I'm betting the turn and then re-evaluating river. I might check fold river if I don't think my opponent is bluffing or betting worse.

    against some opponents who i know might use the "scare" card and try to get me to fold, I might give them the rope and check to them...

    More I think about it, the more I think I'm probably betting the turn in position or out of position against one player. No answer is absolute, but that's my default

    Good luck

    Hey Chris,

    You might be right about the river action - hard to tell. Regardless, the chips are going in...

    To answer your question, maybe. Obviously, we don't have a big enough sample size to know how Greg will respond after he loses a few hands. I think it's really smart of you to understand that our opponents are always changing. Tilt, losing a hand, winning a hand, etc...all factors into the next hand they play. How do our opponents adjust and "out-adjusting" them is the game. That's what separates the winners from the guys treading water.

    In this particular case, Greg doesn't strike me as someone who's going to go on Aggro-tilt and start raising with hands that he doesn't view as the best. His raising range might indeed expand simply because he's so sick of getting sucked out on and he wants to
    "protect" his hand.


    Great observation Chris ... Thanks for the comment and best of luck!

    Try not to get stuck into this thought process....I promise you there's way more than luck involved in beating these games.

    You obviously need to make adjustments when many players see the flop, the turn and the river, but at the end of the day, if you're making the correct adjustments, you'll come out on top.

    Good luck!
