    That mountain in poker circles is better know as Golgotha, and we all know how Jesus got to the top of Golgotha, by accepting his cross. Uri Peleg, as our Messiah, taught us how to do it in this video series. Great video Uri, I hope to see more of your videos in the future...

    Oh wow I I actually thought those SB BB Winrates were real 6max WR's. Pretty sure that'd make you jesus level over large samples :)

    Hey Uri, awesome video! Thanks!

    I have a question about 28:20. You said that we need to defend 60% out of the hands that beat a bluff. Shouldn't we defend 60% of all of our river range?

    Hi elpsycho,
    The short answer is: it's complicated.
    Defending 60% of your river range is wrong, and defending 60% of all hands that beat a bluff is also wrong, but it's less wrong :)
    Either way the results end up being fairly close most of the time so it's not a big deal unless we are talking about a very small amount of combos on the river.

    38:00 If you say you have much more trips in your range than Villain, isn'T it better to consider checkraising the river with some of your worst bluffcatchers (especially hands that block his boats)?
