    @all: thanks for feedback

    @Comments on my accent: I'm from singapore and I'm a Chines, not indian but we sound funny to foreigners in general (or maybe it's just me)

    @TwiceT: yeah I guess I should explain. i try to play tighter in higher stakes games (esp OOP) because i will get exploited by the better players when they 3-bet preflop a lot or float/raise postflop IP. In general my stats hover around 21/18 at most stakes on average but I play really loose at NL100 and maybe 200 (20/17 for FR and 27/23 for SH), especially when I am playing fewer tables

    Having 50% equity with our range against our opponent's range seems pretty useless. I could for example take a range of AA and 72o and have 50% against a specific range. We shouldn't be looking for 50% on average, but for 50% with each hand individually.

    50% and 60% equity just to call seems pretty nitty to me. And if you suggest only calling with as much as 60% equity, you need to talk about raising for value vs calling - even realizing there will probably be another episode on 3betting, I think this episode is pretty misleading as it is.

    Nice video, but it's not SSS is it.

    @kyroka: yes i absolutely agree with you. but it's just a guideline, I cannot possibly show u the equity of every individual hand. I just picked those that have playability and are likely to be profitable.

    the overall equity is more or less to stress the importance of having CARD ADVANTAGE to make up for the lack of INITIATIVE and POSITION

    @jbpatzer: nope it's BSS, you definitely can't play so many speculative hands from UTG/MP/SB/BB when you are short-stacked and OOP, optimal raise-sizing should be somewhere between 2-2.5X as well to allow more post-flop maneuvering

    My point is that this video has been classified as SSS. You need to get it labled right. Not your fault I'm sure! ;^)

    wow, was pretty sure that there's not much to get out of a preflop vid. Was wrong though, definately good stuff especially for sh games. Overall really well explained and good content especially for 30 min vid.

    I've got a question though, do you really believe that you can turn a profit with that wide flatting ranges IP? I do realize that equity is pretty much break even and position kind of diminishes the advantage that villain gets from initiative. Don't know I've never flatted that much IP.
