    Nice video. As for bluffing with our weakest calls/strongest folds... My guess is the bottom of calling range/top of our folding range has a higher non zero chance of winning vs a call than our weaker folding range.

    Yup, pretty much nailed it bang on

    Although I've spoken a bit about this idea with madorjan on here and he's of the opinion that on certain boards card removal may actually supercede this idea and that's certainly a valid viewpoint.

    (i.e. if you're on a board where AK/AQ will be value-betting turning KQ into a bluff may not be a good move as you block many of the combos you're looking to beet/fold out)

    But overall on many board it's a good line to take specifically for the reasons you mentioned

    whole U[0,1] theory is not based on 2-bet method... U[0,1] is just a method of presenting holdings of players in a game

    Would be nice to give references to original source of this picture i.e. The Intelligent Poker Player book. Maybe you have author permission to just put this here? (or perhaps you mention it later in the video)

    The original source of the Picture is from the original Ferguson, Ferguson and Gawargy article which is freely available however you are correct and I will add the reference to this forum for the whole article


    It goes into a lot of detail about how one street methodology is used and is a very good read overall
