  5. Jeff,Β  I play lots of tourneys in Oklahoma at Winstar and Choctaw and will fold to overs with k's or q's.Β  When there is a shove on the turn, heads up, I want to fold my pair and play another hand with a better opportunity.Β  You are a much better tourney player than me but I think you should consider this as "friendly" advice.Β  KUTGW, (keep up the good work)

  6. Jeff I've been watching ur vids and I'm learning heaps! Been crushing my local tournaments as of late (although no wins to show for it, just good placements) and a big thanks to you pal!

    If you're curious to see how much you've inspired me feel free to check out this website http://www.playpokernights.com.au/results and look for the name 'Connor Ireland'

  9. Jeff – love the videos. Try to trap a little more and stop moving in so often with questionable hands. People play very common hands like King Queen off, etc so don't be surprised when a hand like that shows up against your AK on the flop. Remember: you have to fold a lot of really good hands to win a poker tournament.

  13. Tough running into AA twice, good run. You can pick apart a lot of poker hands, that's what makes the game great. Jeff is not afraid to put his chips in the middle, have to have that mentality to win, and he wants to win. I would have liked to seen a bag and tag w 20+BB and Jeff fresh for the next session, but this is his time to steal cookies, everyone is thinking day two, he is a pro gambler. If you don't get caught with your hand in the cookie jar from time to time, you are being to good a boy at the table and you are not going to be eating like what I just saw go down, I am still hungry, very nice. Jeff do not underestimate how better you play fresh, so gearing down although against your instincts and style, there may be value to consider there and taking the foot off the gas may be in order from time to time, you can also tell me to F%&# Off. Hoping for big things this summer, good luck, great breakdowns.

  14. Harness some of that aggression …its great stuff 50% of the time and the other 50% of the time it leads to you discounting your opponent with dubious general guidelines like the "small blind jams with lighter holdings" … or the "loosest position". In my experience it s the tightest position and its typically heavy holdings not lighter ones…. You gained information with your initial raise with your A3 suited … instead of pushing you can stay alive and dump it…. crucial decision. At a full ring table its very common for other Aces to be dealt and you gotta feel A 3 is at least dominated or drawing ultra thin to any pocket pair greater than 3's …. If you get the reputation for being ultra aggressive…you will also be noticed for that and sharp folks will discount your strength and re-push…. take the info you gain with your initial raise and fold instead of caving into hubris…u raise to gain information but your costing yourself with bad decisions after that info is learned. A3 suited is a far better cash game holding 4/ 5 handed or more in late position. And u know all this above crap…its just frustration that seeps into tourneys…. A LITTLE MORE PATIENCE! ~ just my thought buddy ….get after the next one!

  20. a lot of people on here saying that he plays to over-aggressive blah blah blah yes if you play that way in cash games you will get crushed you have to play a pretty tight aggressive strategy for cash games but when you're playing tournaments whole different ballgame I learned that the hard way after trying to play too tight for years kept wondering why all the looser players would always make the final table the way he plays will get you to the final table much more often with decent stack then playing too tight and knitting it up riding into the money and having no chips very simple if I play my tighter cash game strategy in say 200 hundred tournaments and he plays his loose aggressive even overly aggressive strategy he will definitely win more money than me at the end of the year

  30. JB..from another JB..hey man greatness as usual….but this one hit me hard….it's the Q5suited clubs…my mom who is no longer with us (2yrs).but I played that exact same hand in a cash game at venetian…flopped a flush and cracked aces to scoop up a $800!…I gave it to my parents because I already up…..I know you don't probably play that hand all the time…but if you ever do…I hope you are successful with it all the time..πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘Š.

  31. We're the 2nd largest tournament stack and It's the last hand on the bubble before dinner break. I'm already salivating over the upcoming filet. I'm UTG and look down @ KK. We decide to trap and min-raise. It folds around to the bb (chip leader) he tanks for 5 minutes and then JAMS ALL-IN! We instacall… and he reveals..AA πŸ™ The flop comes

    KK2

    I quickly text my order to Delmonico.

    The turn comes….A
    The river comes…A…

    I wake up in my bedroom in a cold sweat…

  40. 'he gets 10% of whatever I win in this tournament' was praying for a 'and we are OUT!' clip to immediate follow hahah

  41. I AM curious why you jammed A3? I see way too many better hands calling. You just had to sit there for 5 more hands to b/t. A bit greedy, no. A new table draw brings a whole new set of victims to the party. Do what you do but I think you jam when there could be better spots. Js I love watching though either way. Keep trying!!!

  42. Jeff….

    At some point in your commentary can you discuss ICM and your philosophy ?

    I've seen several of your vids where i think your stack is easily enough to cash or final table….only to be followed by "We are OUT !"

    As a non-tournament player and also mostly a nit…. I would assume that the prize pool is a big consideration, but i've noticed the same with a bigger top prize and big pay jumps….so the logic seems to be one of trying to win it all as opposed to merely cashing.

    In other words, just wondering WHEN the prize pool becomes a consideration in lessening the aggression and letting the short stacks get pushed out.

    Thx….and keep up the great work.

  43. The beginning is like the music from the opening of American Psycho. "My name is Jeff Boski. I believe in taking care of myself, and a balanced diet of steak and a rigorous poker routine…"
