    Nice video for beginners.
    Only i found 1 mistake in it. On 2:17 on the slight you see the equity 9% vs 81% and it must be 9% vs 91%.

    @3 you forget the chance for a draw :)

    Question 2 of the quiz is incorrect. When we talk about hand ranges we must assume JJ+, AT+ we cannot assume he hasn't got AJ, AJs, AQ....etc, so he might have AJ, AQ or AK of Diamonds witch would give him the best hand with any Diamond on the river except 9d.

    #3 is correct, if you put AhAd vs 2s2c on board ts9c2d in equilab, it says 91%-9%. They also just said it always has to add up to 100%, so when there would be a draw (which from this flop onward I can hardly imagine happening) the draw equity would still have to be divided between the two players leading to a total equity of 100%. win+lose+tie=100%

    @4 if you think there's a 10% chance for a draw you are terribly misinformed. There is a 0% chance for a split pot, now we have seen the flop. SDK1987 is correct.

    the word possible is misspelled in the video. it says "1.7 million possbile boards".
