Most of the players you see on youtube are pros, they're not the fishes you see playing online. They're not gonna be donk betting with air and letting you stack them off. They're gonna play 7 2 the same way they play KK.
Yeah thats correct I still think some of the guys get an ego kick off showing off for the camara's and are happy to keep on playing wide.
theirs rarely all ins in a pro cash game so it allows the players really to do what they want and carry on with weak hands in an attempt to pick up reads narrow down ranges
In a sense if you know your opponents range you have an advantage if your flopping low cards and you know their range is premium to pocket pairs from a certain position, something like 62 could be profitable when it hits.
if used to perfection its massively profitable some days.
It still seems daft playing bad hands out of position when your an epic calling station. - however this does prove you can teach yourself your own aggressive strategy over along time - if you have a talent in the game
