Hi Craig
yes , my mistake if it was 5 handed , that does make a difference

agree the other hand is close, how often does that flop happen in those situations...

Thanks Jack, glad you thought it was ok as this was the first time I've ever played live giving my thoughts

Hey Lee,

AK hand was 5 handed so not quite UTG vs UTG+1. He's a fairly decent reg who's capable of 4bet bluffing and he (prob) knows I'm capable of 3betting light here so I have no trouble shoving if he 4bets. He may also be opening lighter than normal as the SB is a weaker player. I think flatting pre is ok as well though.

JJ - a small cbet could be ok and I certainly would against some people but I guess the A5 hand was still in my mind and I'm thinking he overvalues certain hands like AT/AJ. I also thought he'd maybe check back more than usual due to the hand earlier. Would def like others opinions though as I'm not 100% sure a check is correct

This was a really good video - for those who are having trouble moving up, definitely take note of how Craig plays.

liked the video, 2 points for me;
on the ak hand utg+1 (i know it was v fairly loose reg who was utg) but you said you 3 bet hoping to get it in. I think i prefer flatting here as his range narrows obv and your not in fantastic shape when you get it in.
Also on th JJ hand bvb i still prefer a small cbet on the flop despite the previous hand v villain
