      Hi,

      Easy stack off with one pot size bet left. MP2 can do this with a wide variety of hands, Qx, Tx, JK, gutshots, and worse. QT and sets are a small percentage of his range.

      if the pot is 1$ big and your opponent bets 3$ in it and you have an overpair, it's profitable to call.

      Here we have even better odds: pot: 1.7 and he bets 1.7.

      When you have a stack to pot ratio of 1 to 3: that means if the pot is 1$ big and your effective stack is 3$, if you have an overpair, it's profitable to put the rest of the money into the pot.

      Hi,


      Sure, he's just giving away some rule of thumbs that he finds useful as a point of reference. If it's an easy call getting 3:1 it's an easy call getting 2:1. You need 33% equity getting 2:1 by the way, not 40%. 1/3 of the time you win a pot of 2 bets, 2/3 of the time you lose your bet. 1/3*2-2/3*1=0 ev.

      That is absolutely no way you can ever fold that really, unless you the best dead-accurate read on villain that he never leads out unless he has more than two pairs. You'll see people spazz randomly something and overall can you preflop with KQs/AQ because it's too pretty to fold, then play it exactly the same way.


      Hope it helps.
