hey sergey,

I have some questions. I am not very familiar with solvers but the simulation where you analyze checking vs donking 75%. Is it accounting for turn and river decisions and if so how did you setup the turn+river parameters?

And for the question of how much we are supposed to be defending you said something about (1-alpha). What is alpha standing for and how do we figure out the right defense frequency in theory? Sorry if that's basic stuff. Is there a possibility to find out more about that kind of theory and how equity and betsize influence our defending strategy?

bottom right 28:46: you need 35,55% and you have 32,5% in this specific case.

thanks for the video phil!

Where can I learn more about applying gametheory and doing those calculations. Definitely interested in seeing you doing more mathematical oriented videos

Comment | StareDog commented on University- what do?
Good threat, i struggled with this a lot during semesters. I tried to balance studying, poker and real life and i often thought about quitting but the social aspect was holding me back. Now I have decided to finish my degree and then go back to poker and see how much i can make there and it's still fun.

It depends on how you can balance that out but at least for me doing both, studying and poker at the same time isn't an option because you are not competing at your best.

As already mentioned if you don't finish a degree it will be hard to get back in the system no matter how intelligent you are you.

Another aspect is that online poker is in the regulation process in many important markets and it's not sure how that will end. You might have more clearity if you have finished your degree, but i don't think that should be a factor if your really dreaming to be a pokerpro because it will always be possible to make money.

The social aspect: university is just awesome because you meet so many different people with different opinions and you learn a lot about life and yourself i think. If you play poker i think it can be lonely or you might end up just hanging out with other pokerplayers and disconnect from "the real world". But thats obv very personality dependant and how you balance your life.

With 19 i would probably go to university, try to finish it as soon as possible and then try go back to poker
