17:36: I don't think we may divide 133 by 33 but instead 133-(-33)/33 = 166/33. 133/33=4 but 166/33=5! It is this five which corresponds the 1/5 winnig probability and equalizes it to 1. So 1/5 * 5 = 1.
133/33=4 misleads us here and it is not true that "four over one [...] translate into [...] one out of five cases" - it needs to be five over one!

I am new to poker, and I might be wrong, but the video version does not make sense to me. So please check it thorougly. Thanks for this clearly structured video!

@13: I think the video is correct, basically you stand to lose \$33 if we lose but only manage to gain \$133 dollars when we win.

Pot odds = possible winnings : cost of staying in hand
Pot odds = 133 : 33
Pot odds = 4 : 1

In ratios, you add both sides to get a fraction, so the odds of breaking even are 1 / (4 + 1) = 1 / 5

This was a great vid. Thanks for sharing.

Question: How does does this chart compare with the MSS chart which covers 3-bets and says to 3-bet, AJ (if the initial raise comes from middle-late position)?
