Thank you so much for the video

Respectfully, i would to make one suggestion. You don't need to explain the action, as that is what the video portion is for. Use the audio to explain your thought processes and reasoning and let the video content be enough for us to follow the action on our own.

I signed up for this site to see Ivey make his mixed game videos. There are plenty of NL/PLO videos from other coaches you can watch and I also think you can learn a lot from his thought process regardless game.

I agree with lacoste, a lot of parts sound like a tournament director announcing final table action, still a good video. It would be slower but seeing a full table would be more helpful I think, and speaking on some differences between O8 cash game and tourney strategy would be cool. Looking forward to more mixed game stuff.

Hi Phil

At 17:25, you call Qh Kh Jc 5s on Ad Th 3d 2c, getting 5-to-1. You have a tainted 9 outer and might only be drawing to half-the-pot anyway.

At 29:20 you comment that you plan to call turn if he bets. You have 6h 6d Ac 9h on 5c Kd 8c Qc and would be getting 4-to-1. This looks that a very thin call unless you plan to do something special on the river?

Could you please explain your logic in these two spots?

Feel like alot of spots in which you take a very passive line with decent draws/equity especially on turns when no low present then playing fit or fold on river. This is just allowing him to barrel off all his low draws which miss and all his high draws similar to yours which also miss on river.

About 21mins in you say you should of check raised qt on a kqt 2 flush board. I think this is always a check call and a cr is a clear mistake. If he just has a low hand he has basically no outs anyway. If he has any high hand its really hard for you to have any sort of equity edge and your hand is really hard to play on most high turn and rivers.

23mins in you check call q357 on a jt3 2 flush board (you have backdoor flush draw). I think this is pretty thin. All your 2 pair outs have really bad implied odds. 5 and 7 bring low draws/more straight draws/only bottom 2, q brings straight (not to mention any which complete the flush).
