  1. The only time I open limp is when I have an aggressive player to my left and I plan to limp raise.

  2. The “never open limp” advice does not apply to limit Hold’em. In limit no one goes away for one more bet, so the opposite is best: see a flop as cheaply as possible.

  3. Solid video, even for those of us that have played for years but not daily. Love the game, but don't have the time to shine a seat more than once a week.

  4. Love the videos! Definitely would love to see a snapshot for Postflop play. I’m currently going through both of your workbooks pre-flop math, as well as Postflop.

  5. Hey James, I'm a big fan of your videos and appreciate the consistency, overall content and visual quality of your videos. There is one thing however that triggers me a little. Your audio. Honestly, it's relatively flat compared to other YT creators and there is a discrepancy in total output volume. Obviously I have no idea which apps/mic/audio interface you use to record and render your content. That said, having a good mic is one thing, but being able to enhance and tweak it with some minor EQ and compressor can go a long way. Either in pre- (OBS built in plugins) or post production (DAW or video editing software).

    I hope this might give you a nudge to look further into the matter and I'll be looking forward to hear if you make any progress on this behalf. Best greetings from Germany! 🙂

  6. Where i play we pre flop raise to usually 7-15 big blinds and 3 bet 30+ big blinds. Is this normal?

  7. Must be nice to play in a game that 12x gets folds. My most recent example of limp calls was yesterday's game everyone limped and I raised to $40 and every single limper called. Keep in mind this is a 1/2 game with a $200 capped buy in. After that I bumped it up to $100 to get folds. Absolutely insane to have to et 50% of my stack to get folds.
