    Great presentation guys, A+.
    Doug: I noticed the bet frequency of JJ on the jack high board was really high, roughly equal to QQ. Any guess as to why?
    Ross: If I understand the tail end of the 6-2-1 discussion, you bet the small PP less or not at all if 5 out and 4 out SC’s are in your range. OK, but what frequency should you bet those hands? Those hands are absolutely in my LP raising range, so I run into this situation on a regular basis.

    GTO will not tell you “why” on anything. However, if I understand your question, you are asking “Why you would bet the nuts (JJ on J high board)?” I guess my answer is “because we want to get paid when we hit the nuts.”

    This was from 37:40 ish in the video.

    I really enjoyed both your videos on plugging leaks. Interesting thoughts to make some extra money.
    I usually fall to the no set no bet thought process, I n the 6 2 1 model to follow goes like:

    1. be in position, heads up
    2. it is a dry rainbow flop
    3. 5 outers, sc, are not in your range {late position usually}
    4. bet size around 33-40%
    I am a slow learner so hopefully this is right.

    I hope you two make some more videios together in the future

    I think those rules are very clear and correct. Thank you, ross and I plan to be back after the Fox. Kent and I will be around also.

    after watching again the part of flopping top set on a three to a straight board, I have some questions as to why not to bet. I am thinking ok, On the ten high flop I have top set with ideally a 34% to a fullhouse+ redraw. If I had an overpair QQ+ would I bet it to take the pot now? It seems there is more of a chance they do not have a straight ,if they have a gutshot draw /oesd still they may call and still miss most of the the time. Shouldn’t you be charging the draws on the flop and re evaluate om the turn?

    GTO solvers do not tell you “Why” but here is my thoughts by looking at not only the flop response but all the way down the line.

    While we have the fourth nuts, there are many draws, all of which are going to call it is near on impossible to give them the wrong price to draw. We could easily be behind already. We are not able to give the wrong odd to draws, and could be setting up a big pot that we cant get away from.

    We are at the mercy of the run out. The turn card can devalue the draws by half, and cut the implied odds down massively. A bad turn card can massively devalue our set. The good news is, we will know a good and bad turn card and play very well from there.
