Just looked up this video again today after a long time, still one of the most influential videos on my pokergame and especially in PLO this is very good stuff.

#8/9 Once you get the hang of it, you can do it on the fly as well but it took me like a full week of non-stop practicing and writing a document about it to get it to stick in my brain but at least now it isn't going anywhere anymore. Do agree that it is not really a basic skill but it is a very fundamental skill to possess.
