    Two Corrections for this video:

    1) The average difference in winrate that I observed is actually 4bb/100 (not 4BB). Using the BB/100 rake paid, I estimate that being out of position puts us at no less than a 2.4% disadvantage.

    2) The Equation was miss-wrote for REQ. In the denominator, replace (Pot-Inv.) with (Pot).

    Also, if you want to account for rake & position, you can multiply the denominator by (1-rake) and divide the numerator by (Pot*position). This is covered in greater detail in future videos.

    In addition to the comments here, you can also ask questions during either weekly live FL coaching.

    for investment what we refer in the specific formula used in the video? TY
  • datsmahname


    I'm not sure I understand your question, but for SB open raising:

    INV = (Average Pot)/2 - Small Blind
  • kiromanAAKK


    The Inv in this formula

    REQ = P(fold)*blinds + (P(fold)-1)*Inv/(P(fold)-1)*(Pot-Inv)


    Btw, that's a great video, thank you very much :)

    Yep, thats the one. Inv = Investment

    However, note correction 2 from my first post. The equation is as follows:

    REQ = [P(fold)*blinds + (P(fold)-1)*Inv]/(P(fold)-1)*(Pot)
