Part 2 of my live $1/$2 session at Full Tilt Poker. The primary discussion theme of the video is the idea that in many situations, against capable opponents, its very difficult to profitably get to showdown with bluff catching hands. So instead of trying to showdown your bottom pair, consider running some sort of bluff instead. The benefits are important because it eliminates guessing games about your equity and gives you a better opportunity to show a profit on the hand. I also talked a lot about using non-standard lines against thinking, aggressive regular opponents. Guys who are good at assigning ranges, who are capable of floating a check-raise, and who are not afraid to play back when they think something doesn't make sense, are great candidates to use different lines against. They tend to not believe you, and as a result you can use unexpected plays to get them to try to re-bluff you. I also talked about why its good for your meta-game. Lastly, I mentioned how different opponents react when you catch them 3-Betting light. Often, they will wait for a strong hand thinking that you are going to be playing back at their next 3-Bet, even if they have to wait half an hour for that hand. I don't particularly like that strategy against anyone player that's paying attention and I explain why. As far as the hands go, we picked up a few good bluff spots but also made some hands. Our recreational friend from the first video sticks around and I made a couple hands against him.
