  1. I subscribed to your channel maybe 5 years ago and for the last two years i didn't have a single video by you in my subscription feed.
    Nice that you are still doing this.

  2. I like small ball bets in a situation like this like Alex did. There's a chance someone could be trapping with a better hand and you don't want to get greedy and lose too much in this situation. Still, kings is a good hand and it did look like everyone had air or near air. By the river you're only losing to a jack or aces so it makes sense to make a bet that can be called by a worse hand.

  3. Its a shame the stacks were so low. If I were him and the stacks were larger, I would be bluff shoving repping the jack.

  4. Nice video! Quick question:

    Although you were blocking KJ and QJ, why were you not at all worried anyone could have a J? I feel like the BB is checking his entire range here, which includes any J. Do you feel that the multi-way pot would have enticed the CO/BTN to Cbet/bet respectively?

    I’m relieved knowing that I probably would have taken the same line as you here, but on the flop and turn, I would have been more worried that there’s the chance I’m being slowplayed.

  5. It was a good bet size. Only other option is to check, as if you made a feeler bet on the turn to see who had something. Then aborted mission on the river. He might try to bluff or bet more than your sizing which could yield a bigger profit when you call.

  6. his only options are if he has air is re raise you because he thinks you have air, or just fold. If he has the flush, well, he'll either re raise again if he thinks you have air or call. Or of course if he has a king he may call or re raise. Or he may think you have the boat or better due to your medium raise hoping he will call.
