    #1 is right,on 0:58 AJsuited just dropped right of the chart when separating the main chart into a separate value and bluff chart...

    Can anyone please explain to me why we shouldn't differentiate between the part of our opponent's value range that we beat and the part that we don't beat? on 1:33 for example, it shows TT lies in his value range, but it is a hand that our holding on 1:50 we include TT in his value range which will increase the VB ratio which would mean it slightly tips the scale to us folding more often, even though it is a hand we clearly beat???? Once we reach the river, shouldn't we only include value hands in villain's range that beat our hand? Imo it means we should discard TT here as including it will increase the VB ratio which will in turn, negatively influence our odds even though it shouldn't? To make it really black and white, if we should also include 77,88,99 in his value range here, also hands we beat, it would mean the number of "value" hands will increase, his VB ratio will become higher which would in turn mean we would have to fold more often which would be incorrect as we beat all these hands. Comments are very much appreciated.

    When we hold QJ and the board is Q97, we don't beat any hand of value range. There's no man who raises QT for value here.
    The question you asked requires other, more specific example, let's say you face c/raise holding 88 on 6s7s8s

    #4 Did you even read my question and/or watch the video? His value range is DETERMINED at 1:33 and there it mentions a.o. "TT" that we beat and I never said "QT" (no idea where you got QT from, I didn't mention it and it is also not part of his value range mentioned under 1:33). Also you mention the board Q97 and that is the example mentioned at 2:53 I am talking about the example mentioned at 1:50...please READ questions carefully before answering this is a complete waste of time.
