    you said "A King in contrast" as opposed to " AK in contrast" ;) but even though that MASSIVELY TERRIBLE MISTAKE took place (kidding), this was an awesome video :D

    does middle pair constitute hitting middle pair on the flop or must it be a pocket pair?
  • sandshooz86


    when u say for example raise 4BB + 1BB for every person that is in, do u mean raise to 60 or raise ANOTHER 60 on top of the BB?

    It s better you explain abbreviations of the position in article too. Nice video anyway...

    I think the raising size is too big, now players mostly raise from 2bb to 2,5bb, rarely 3bb, I mean if no players limp/raise behide you ;)
