Join us for an electrifying journey as Brad Owen faces off against one of his Lodge Co-owners, Doug Polk! Both players are incredibly deep stacked (over 900bb effective stacks!) but that won’t stop them putting ALL OF THEIR CHIPS INTO THE MIDDLE!! In this video, I break down various levels on poker strategy involved throughout the hand, such as how to construct ranges when incredibly deep-stacked, avoiding levelling yourself against certain players, and even when to go all-in on the river 🤯

☢️ Preflop: We’re playing $5/$5 with a $5 big blind ante. Facing an early position raise of $15, Brad Owen bumps it up from the hijack seat to $50 with pocket rockets (A♣A♥). Doug Polk on the button, 4-bets to $135. Brad opts to 5-bet to $350 and Doug Polk just calls

🔥 Flop: J♣ 5♠ 3♥ Brad continues his aggressive line on this flop and bets out $250! Facing the ~1/3rd pot bet, Doug opts to call and we see a turn.

💖 Turn: 8♥ The turn card brings in one of the backdoor flush draws, Brad Owen, holding the Ace of Hearts doesn’t fear the draws, he bets $825 into the $1,230 pot! Doug Polk, considers his options, and ultimately makes the call.

💔 River: 3♣ The river card pairs the board and bricks out the backdoor flush draw. Brad thinks carefully about his opponent’s range, and what sort of hands he will make it to the river with, he ultimately decides to SHOVE ALL-IN!
