  1. This happens to be some of my sticking points right now. felt like you were talking to me directly about my play. love your videos!!!

  2. The 3 on the turn…wouldn’t you suspect he may have a pair of threes in his hand ??

  3. Great explanation of the line.

    But I have a question: the concept of a blocker makes lots of sense when you can "eliminate" a certain RANK of card. But in the case of a SUIT blocker, isn't the probability impact relatively small?

    If I have a J and there are only 3 left, the probability of a J has decreased by 25%.
    If there are two spades on the board, then by me also having a spade the probability of the opponent having another spade goes from 11 to 10 — about a 10% decrease in probability. Please correct my math if I am missing something.

    Isn't it fair to say that all the other factors that lead you to one action over another must be a very very close call for a suit blocker to matter?

  4. I believe my dumb ass could actually learn from him as a coach. He probably charges 10K an hour, so it won't happen, but his explanations of the modern game are magnificent.

  5. I can’t describe how great these videos are. This shows how beautiful poker is.

  6. Well, with one card you are not really "blocking" a lot, even though you reduce the number of possible combinations.
    Good example: once I had KK and the board paired and showed a straight which could have been realized by holding KT. I excluded that my opponent had a boat, which was right. But he hold the KT, even though I was "blocking" the Kings, with the two of those that I hold. Yes, there had been only two kings out, not four – which made it less likely that he had those (together with the ten), but he did, of course. It is less likely, but it is not really "blocked".
