doing the math is not so much fun for lots of people but i beleive that doing this type of off table work is very good at building our in game intuition. good job with a tough subject looking forward to part 2. thanks

somewhat usefull is as massive understatment. lol. i commented on your last post audio vid that i liked it and this one was very very good. i know people like the fast action live play myself included but tbo vids like this are far more instructive from a training perspective. so mixing it up is fine but please continue puting out vids exactly like this one. cheers mate.

Very interesting and instructive as usual. you mentioned Monker so my question is at around 30:00 you talked about 95s being a low freq open from the SB vs BB. i have a Monker sim SB vs BB and it reflects the same as you said but it also reflects a higher freq "call/limp". Out of a 52% range it wants to have an open limp strat about 17% of the time (with some very large re-raises) its based on 5% rake with a 1bb cap, its all very complicated and not sure it provides a large enough EV gain to study. I would be interested in your thoughts on this?

Henry, as ive mentioned before ive learned a lot from your vids, what i find interesting is your pre flop thought process. at 2.47 you fold JTo in the BB vs a CO 2.25bb RFI because CO has a Vpip 22. is that overall or by position? i usually look a RFI by position to estimate the range of my opponent. any chance you could expand/explain briefly pre flop decisions based on Vpip/RFI stats, (i am aware its a close to 0 EV call) it seems overly tight compared to at 26.20 your SB Squeeze with QTs which seems quite aggro. AT 29.30 cold 4betting A5s in SB looks like a Snowie influenced move. as you progress do you look back at your study with Snowie as positive part of your development?

Really good vid Patrick ive recently done a pop up overhaul to group some of these stats closer together and it seems im on the right track, in your opinion when it comes to "downstream" stats particulary WWSF WTSD , W$SD what kind of sample size are we looking for not to be misled? i will usually look at #of opportunities regardless of # of actual hand and combine with early access stats like Vpip PFR and RFI. to get a "feel" but at what point do you put more "faith" in the numbers?

Very Good Video. in my notes i have added Equity advantage , Nut advantage and SPR as part of "define strategy plan" i think defining the bottom of our value range is a brillient concept in adding to our thinking process. well done.

great video as always Pete, good point about River calls and GTO. as you may of heard GTO+ has upgraded and now has a play against the solution training feature. some of the "GTO" River calls are just plain NOT very GTO vs the pop at the micros i can only guess how quick i would go broke making some of these calls. Re: Redline, i guess there's a sweet spot somewhere between folding to a bet on the flop and getting to the river only having to fold to a unbal.value heavy range. you spoke in a previous video about folding hands on the ealier streets to save redline losses think ill go watch that again , maybe expand on it on a future video. i think you make very good points these days with advanced theory and solvers still the most imortant thing is" know your player pool." thanks for the Rcall Eff explanation.

i think A2 A3 are blocking opponetnts value range but unblocking opponents bluffing range so there is more probibility if we check we will get bet into, making a check/raise more +EV. ?
can you briefly explain how sizing impacts the blocker effect?
great video thanks

Enjoyed the Vid Pete! very interested in reading your "animal" article will it be posted on your site? Sinse ive been heavely influenced by your training vids im a Vulture, but i do subscribe to the Porcupine news letter just for something to read when im in the Loo.

great vid. these videos that bridge the gap between theory and application are very good learning tools imo. i would like to see more like this in the future. also i found the last hand interesting because it shows the effect of assumptions on our thought process.

As a GTO+ user and Crev appreciator i really enjoyed the past two videos and would love to see more GTO+. in your sim i thought that the reason for no checking may have been related to the fact there was no all in option. so i ran the same sim giving both players the option of going all in on any street. output was no checking also. thanks for the great content.

Checking the site every morning first thing! more Uri PLEASE!

i enjoyed your video as always ive learned a lot from watching them multiple times.
as far as the rng i agree with all the points you made at around 19min. I think EV's are close at many decision points and it bennefits long term EV to randomize our frequencies. I also think it saves brain energy and helps mental game issues
to make some decisions with an rng not on biased assumptions. good job mate. Cheers!

i really enjoyed this video, i still use CREV as much or more than the solver for all the same reasons you mentioned. i retain what ive learned better and it compliments the solver in that when i look at the equilibrium i have a deeper overall understanding of the spot. its also quicker to make adjustments and look at the resulting EV. thank for keeping this excellent tool in the spotlight. I would love to see more hands analyized like this. cheers!

Enjoyed your video as always, my main take away on this one other than it seems like all the coaches here on RiO who do live plays get a much better distribution of starting hands than i do lol , is that first: make the play that has the highest EV vs a specific opponent ( reads , Hud etc..) second: if you dont know that, fall back to a GTO type strat and third: if you dont know that, whatever play you choose is going to be wrong. really looking forward to your next Key Concepts Vid! PS:i like the 2 Table format.
