    Another great vid from our Fausto !! He breaks down some 2/5 hands played with his aggressive LAG style, and adds some tidbits on generating action and putting V to the test. Good stuff, which is applicable in the games I'm in.

    Great video.
    Some thoughts on hand No2:
    In order to get paid enough for your successful set mining attempt, you need to raise at some point in the hand. Being oop you will have to c/r. Why don't you c/r the flop? You offer arguments against a flop c/r based on balancing, as I understand it. But you are playing live poker. Great spot to play your set, not your range. So what do you care if he jams? Furthermore your flop c/r range contains numerous draws, even combo draws, so you are balanced. Finaly, there are very few turn cards on which a c/r shove would be seen as a bluff (ie small spades). So if you call flop and c/r turn on a coordinated turn card you could be overplaying your hand and if you c/r on a turn brick your range is 80-90% floped sets, so then you are unbalanced.
    I would c/r this wet flop and shove most turns, including a high heart card.
    Any thoughts?
