you should turn off all the FTP beeps b/c theyre V loud / tilting (you can do this by going to C:prog files- full tilt poker - waves and deleting all the files labelled beep i think - just click the files to play them in itunes / WMP)

Also, what if villain is on a draw? I have realized I have contradictory intuitions about this. If he is on a draw, we give him great odds to just call and try to hit. On the other hand, also by raising so small, if he is on a draw, he might be more willing to push, putting us on a cheap bluff. I guess it is player dependent, but which do you think is more likely?

**** In a 3bet pot, most players will play fairly straight forward with draws, especially on the flop. It really comes down to what kind of range you put villain on (if its polorized) and choose board textures very very carefully. Often times raising on wetboards is not a good idea because villain can have high equity hands, but on the other hand, some players will never ever rebluff a wetboard, or even cbet for that matter because they are afraid you may have a drawing hand that wont fold etc. 100bb deep in a standard 3bet pot, theres not much room for play, so I wouldnt be so worried about giving villain "good odds" etc. Kind of the reason why you can get away with certain betsizes in 3bet pots, it doesnt have to be big to have FE because the stacks are so shallow. I guess to answer your question, it depends, but most players will play high equity draws aggressively.

Hope that helps!

Would hero ever do this with a draw or on some bluff? I'm worried that we "eliminate our drawing range" by raising that small, and he can just fold some marginal hands that he might be tempted to go call/call or even value shove if we raise a little bigger (because he could now put us on a draw).

****Absolutely yes, hero will have bluffs/draws. Hands like OESFD/NFD are for obviously going to be raised for value since we have so much equity and villain can shove with worst draws). If villain is a good/experienced player, its pretty important to stay balanced at all times, and that includes sizing. Id like to keep my bluffs as cheap as possible as well as induce with made hands/monster draws.

Raising small with a draw in such a spot seems disastrous to me, since we'd have small fold equity and we'd be encouraging a rebluff which would be horrible. If he views us as competent, he can discount those and play his hand vs a value raising range. But maybe my assumption that we don't do this with a draw is wrong.

**** If we raise any bigger, we get more and more commited, and its much harder to raise/fold in a 3bet pot 100bb deep. You shouldnt be raising a cbet if you think villain will rebluff you a large % of the time, so choose your line thoughtfully (depending on player/position/stacksize/history/ and my favorite, gut feeling haha). I assume most players are worried about raising a semi bluffing hand (draw) and getting called and missing on the turn etc. Remember, as a poker player, you should never be "worried" about getting outdrawn on, let the villain make bad calls etc.

Thank you for the great vid sir.

The AA where you call u2k's 3bet, around 04:30, top middle hand, flop is Qc3c9h, you raise over his cbet very small to induce.
