    Great video for introduction purposes ! Would be awesome to have a video that explains preflop openraising-range construcion based dynamically on the stacks and playertypes behind yourself.

    Very good video cant believe it was a freebee : ) Was already well aware of SPR implications in PLO, but was always curious about the specific role that SPR played in NLHE and now I found it! Thank you

    Good vid, however I disagree with you quite a bit on Q8s hand. All the hands you listed as 4bets make quite good flatting hand vs the small 3bet otherwise we would just be over folding here. And Q8 is quite a good candidate for blocking some value and having some playibility in 4bet pot. We can bet flop and ship turn when we flop a good draw since the nutted part of our range will want to fast play anyway. A hand like a9o can obv be used as 4bet as well. But I rather not use only Axo, but mix in the lowest Kxs and Qxs I don't flat.

    At 25:30 you say that if we call we'll have SPR of 10. Since that, after we call, the pot will be around 20bb and the effective stack size will be 135bb, doesn't that result in a ~7 SPR?

    @server: I´m not quite sure about that, if we opened 50% from SB (which is quite high imho - especially being deep!), we had to defend ~40% (calculatory, likely a bit more) of our open-range, equal to 20% absolute - and Q8s is not even part of a top 20%-range. Even if we defended 25%-30% (absolute) against the 3-bet I´d still find different hands to defend than Q8s. But as mentioned, not sure about this, you might definitly be right with your idea. :)

    @MancaMulas: you´re right, I was a bit too generous with my note about the "rough" SPR. :D
