    11:47 Hero can't be dealt XhXh it needs to be XhYh.

    !2:45 F-6.5/10-65% I think should read

    F=6.5/10 = 65%

    Sry to be picky but then it is a math lesson. :)

    Very much enjoyed the no nonesense approach, can we have more please? :)

    11:47 Alright I will make it XX next time just as a placeholder for face down cards.

    12:45 When I full screen it reads correctly. Maybe a render issue for some resolutions.

    Please be as nit picky as you can :)

    Thanks for the video; I have a question on the calculations.

    I don't understand why we always compare the EV of our play to 0. If I'm in the small blind and make a 3bet with a sizing and success rate so that it's making me lose -0.25BB in average, it's still better than folding. Same story with the 4bets.

    RE #25

    It's a baseline definition. Consider we are BB and want to 3bet a minraise open.

    1) I say folding BB is -1bb. Then reraising and winning the pot is +2.5bb.

    2) I say folding BB is 0bb. Then reraising and winning the pot is +3.5bb.

    Whether you calculate 1) or 2), in the end you always risk the same to the same reward of 3.5bb.
