Looking to find the math formula to calculate my implied life odds. This really seems like something I should know!

I really like your videos

Are you trolling or are you serious in the first 25 mins of this video? I'm going to make a good read and say that most (very likely all) of the members paying $100/mon to watch Elite pro vids on this site know how to play a full house in position.
Thought the last half of the video was really good, pretty sick hand from the Villans POV, kind of agree with the majority of comments that most live regs are really cautious on 400bb+ stacks. Hand from your POV can get more interesting if you replace your hand with like QJs, AdJx, or 76s. Having 98 might actually be interesting on the super rare chance that Villan c/r you on the turn.
Would enjoy more content similar to the last half of this video.
PS. Want 25 mins of my life back. :(

It seems like most people have converted to playing the Pineapple version of OFC, with a very small group still sticking to regular OFC. Pineapple is just a better game period, especially when played in a casino (where they take TIME drops) you are dealing with only 4 draws after the initial 5 card set (basically 4 different decisions) instead of 8 draws (or 8 different decisions in reg OFC). Pineapple just runs faster overall, but with that comes some absurd variance / swings. On top of that, you can only play pineapple at most 3-ways, where in regular OFC you can play 4 ways. All these differences essentially make these two very different games, with most people heavily preferring one version over the other.
Thought of this version this morning that pretty much has the best of both versions:
"3221 Open Face Chinese"
Regular Open-Face Chinese rules.
Players set initial 5 cards, then the draws go: Draw 3, Draw 2, Draw 2, Draw 1
Fantasy Land = 13 cards
Very simple, very similar to the original OFC. It's basically regular OFC with 4 draws instead of 8, so it will play as smooth as most pineapple games in casinos. Since there are no discards, every player always sees 13 cards, therefore it can be played with 4 players again. You can also play this with the Criss-Cross that most people enjoyed on the original OFC app. The variance is obv increased from regular OFC since it will be much easier for players to set up to go to fantasy land and set up to get other royalties, but it won't be the kind of variance you see from 17 card pineapple hands. Fantasy Land also will retain the awesome value it once had.
Also thoughts on the draw structure being 3,2,2,1 vs 2,2,2,2? Which way would you think makes for a better game?

They charge 5% to deposit money on, and take a % to cash out due to "Currency conversion fees". Friend of mine got a wire, and they charged him I believe another 5% on the cash out. Site has no rake back as well, RIO pros should stay away

The reality is, if you play at a level where your opponents are watching RIO videos, and you are not, you leave yourself at a huge disadvantage. In that sense, RIO could easily charge up to $300/mon and would still get action since all the serious pros will pay a high price to stay ahead of the competition (or at the very least, make sure to see what the competition is watching).
