I generaly dont like 4x but when blinds are 5/10 I can understand that. But latter- you just put yourself in tough spots. You had luck to hit almost all the time after 4xing. Q2 hand at 5:30 you should bet way more then 50% of the pot. If he called you on turn with draw then he folds or reraise you anyway. And if he called you with hand then he will call 80 or 90 bet same as 50 since that 7 doesnt change much.\ 103 hand at 10:15 120 raise is very bad. Lucky that he is such a station. Most of players will shove 22 there and you will have to fold. Im talking about that hand like 2 didnt come on river cause that irelevant. So, if you think raise folding then why raise so much? If you are thinking raise calling then thats just bad by itself. 49 hand at 10:56- same as 103. Risking 120 to win 30 is such a bad idea with such marginal hand. 10Js hand- you see what Im talking about. And now it hearts even more because you didnt saw flop with such a nice hand... (btw. Im writing this as I watch) 35 hand at 12:35- do I need to repeat this again. You have luck that he is very bad opponent. I would NEVER just call you in that spot. You would get all in from me and any decent opponent there because if his hand is good enough to call its good enough to shove considering that you raised so much. q8-same 65- same 96-same 84- same j2 at 15:20- considering that he doesnt call light with bluff catcher- no you shouldnt bet there, you did just fine since only better hand calls you there. Q2 at 16:57- you must bet that turn to get some value from draws and to induce protecting shove from top pair. K10- no way you should be folding there.
Dont hate me because of this post I just want to help you with your game I think you are pretty solid poker player. Also you are thinking player with a plan in head and that is very important but you need to work on leaks to be able to move up in limits and win games where you are running like he does in this one. I hope I helped you. See ya.

The secret of HU is to keep concentration on it. I wouldnt be able to play more than one HU at the same time, or even playing an HU at the same time of ring tables or MTTs. And there is another factor i consider important: when we start winning, we should try to increase the speed of the game, i dont mean always beting but clicking faster: this works as a way to increase pressure on the other side. He is already with less chips and he feels he has to manage to turn the game around but he starts to have less time to do it. It works with me. In no time, some start to go all-in still in low blinds and even before he as less than half the starting chips. Then, we just have to wait for the right hand to give him the final lesson!

I went to copy and paste the comments by you Jovi on my video but instead found out brm.com already adds a link so i pasted it into description. I hope noone minds me doing this. I feel it really adds to the quality of the video even moreso but doing it.
Ill make a video of my next mtt and upload it. i had a few but they run over 3 hours sometimes and that really kills my pc's performance.
