I'm probably a station but vs rec I think calldown is ok, its never great or anything.
Flop I think vs rec's range we just have too much equity. Its not nice we are 4way and its not nice we don't close the action. But UTG quite often is x/f here and BTN has a bunch of highcard in it's range , the portion of BTN's range that connects with this board is not that large.
Turn I agree with Jeff
River Is not great, but I think we can win 25% of the time
Depends on your pool a bit some and reads on the rec would help here

What a sick swing the comeback of the century this one will go down in the history of HU poker matches for sure!!
I did not get the chance to watch much of it but it was fun to kind of follow along and read Phil's post on this. Very nice and inspiring comeback what a sick run.

Support was stellar but since they went corporate ofc went downhill. Id give it a couple more days. With the covid stuff can expect delays with these things I guess idk annoying tho but id say your money is quite safe

Yeah forgot the word for it but I was suggesting to describe your occupation in a way where you would not be lying but also not directly straight forward as to when people know in detail what you do, not exactly lying but I guess close to it
You can definitely go just straightforward and tell you play cards for a living. There be ppl who will already have their thoughts made up and not so open minded. And very hard for them to see it in the right light of what the reality of it is. Maybe that's a good thing, depends a bit on the context. Perhaps there are ppl who not necessarily need to know what you do in which case id be honest but vague.
If you want to go the straight forward way with someone id make sure to mention strategy game, competitive , and things like that. Idk it can be very hard to make someone see poker is not like blackjack in a short amount of time. In before "but how much did you lose" questions :P

hmm not sure if 25 flops capture the game well
There are 22100 possible flops a subset of 25 is the smallest subset PIO offers. I guess it's better than nothing and it might be worth it for you depending on what you are looking for

As always a very likable video!
On 19:18 You are talking about bluffing spade rivers.
I was wondering do you think it be over-bluffing if we did with this hand ?
Like we also have some QJ,J9 type hands with a spade and things like this that maybe are better. I like it though and maybe it would be a good spot to overbluff a bit as I think IP has more flushes than OOP since OOP x/r flop's some with the flushes and also 3bets pre some Axss combinations and stuff.

Id say they are very profitable when facing weaker opponents
Only if there are aggro 3better's behind they go down in value I think, when they get to see flop they should be decent bit +EV vs weaker opponents id say

The part with the Confucius quote "True knowledge is knowing the extend of one's own ignorance"
I mean I understand your point and what you mean poker wise you explain very well.
But I think it's more like a big part "stuff you don't know" within that "stuff you think you know" within that "stuff you actually know" And actually I'd argue this is personality dependent some ppl think too fondly of their own intelligence and have a bigger part of "think I know" and others are overly humble and have a bigger part "actually know" than they think they know, they actually know more than they like to admit/think. But perhaps debatable if that can be such.
Anyways lovely break to come to presence and wonderful to see the tai chi guy once again :)
