    At 11:00 i would have given the BB a bigger Calling Range. Am i wrong here?

    If you just push the Nash Range, which is 32,1 % he could call 26,7 %?,0.3&s1=2586&s2=2276&s3=2710&s4=1128&s5=&s6=&s7=&s8=&s9=

    (I guess i made a mistake here like i do very often, but i dont find it).
  • pokerjan


    Ok, you said he could be looser, but you dont see this very often.
  • braminc


    Nash ranges will almost never lead you to a max EV play. Why don't we just plug in ranges that people actually have and profit much more?
  • pokerjan


    Ty for the Vid.

    Its not about max ev there i think. I just meen, if you push more lose than Nash, you should at least expect, to be called as wide as nash says.
    But i got it, you said the Opponents just dont do it. (I would call there much wider if a reg with a high ATS pushes into me, thats why i put it into Nash calc, but i dont play STSNG)

    One more thing, you should expand your
    rec window a bit to the buttom, i was not able to see the hole chart.

    Are you shure the Moneybubble is always higher than some itm Bubble?
    Or did i missunderstood.

    Nice vid, thanks for the kind words ;)
  • pokerjan


    at 38:39 the ante is missing.
    I dont know if that will change anything.
  • braminc


    What do you mean to expand the rec window? I didn't understand..

    In all the cases ive seen the moneybubble is higher than the itm bubbles... I suppose it's possible for this to not be the case at some point in a weird structure, but not that i know of (perhaps in step sngs?)

    There are no antes cause it's from an old FTP 45man. Different structure :/

    Thx for your help.

    Sry, my english sucks.
    No Time to refere to the BF now.
    I will do that later.

    About the window: if i am the only one who could not see the whole chart(the bottom part), it obv. has been my fault.

    Absolutely awesome video!
    Made me think a lot about some of my plays, especially the 3way-allin-spot with the QQ+ Caling Range oO
