I'd appreciate it if you would consider making a video - or even a video series - about crushing a NO rake environment. A lot of us play primarily live games these days Those of us that play 10/20+ pay time once per half hour and no rake the rest of the time. You could pick a stake or zoom pool on stars and that you think represents a 10/20 or 25/50 live game and play/coach as you would against your opponents in the absence of rake.
I suspect training videos of this sort are too few across the site relative to number of Elite subscribers who play in this environment.
Thanks in advance for your consideration.

Great video, as always. I'd appreciate it if you could expand on a concept you mention at the tail end of the last hand (89cc) of the video. You said that you got off the hook because when villain bet pot, you lost $25, but if he had bet 2x pot, you would have lost $32. I consider myself a pretty advanced player, but I failed to follow your logic here. Some additional context and explanation would be much appreciated.

Ben, do you have a good mental model to pick appropriate sizings to get all in geometrically on the river? Alternatively stated, assuming we find ourselves on the flop with a pot of P and effective stacks of X, and want to end up all-in OTR using geometric sizings, how to we determine bet size on all three streets. I play mostly live and, for me at least, this is a hard thing to solve in-game.

I really enjoy your live play videos and hope that you'll consider recording more when good games pop off that you can play from the US.
You folded J996ss unopened from the SB around 2/3rds of the way through the vid. That struck me as uncharacteristic. Was it a misclick? If not, why is that hand not worth a limp?

Great video, pls continue this series. At some point, it would be great to hear your thoughts on why you prefer opening for your standard size when folded to in SB. I don't really understand the logic of the strategy. Thx!
