G'day Ben,

Great content as always, thank you!
I really liked your analysis at the start of the video on why QTcc here lean towards a flat and you are clearly right, which leads to my question: Is it fair to say that NL made a mistake in response to LLinus' turn lead? If this is indeed that case, isn't LLinus' line adding a lot more EV than suggested by the solver?
I know it's dangerous to assume that player like NL will deviate from the optimal, but in this particular hand, he kinda did. So learning these low-frequency spots might be actually worth your time?

Many people in z25 like bet agro vs missed cbet,and give up river most of the time,so I like call turn and give up river,people very often show you Q5/Q8/Q4.

I feel like this argument about river sizing is heavily based on the assumptions of your flop and turn sizing being the way it was, which I don't think is very good.

If you think you can have a 200% psb range on the river when you go 2/3 and 2/3, my guess is the same range will get a higher EV when you go 1.2x, 1.2x and 1.2x.

Cool. Thanks Tyler

For equity=0.99, SPR=2, it should be an easy shove as the optimal bet sizing is definitely greater than 8xpot. It seems whenever it is an 'obvious' situation, the result would turn out negative.

Thanks for your response, Tyler!

I tried to duplicate your Excel form and got the same answers to your examples in the vid. However, when I tried some 'extreme' equity&SPR combos, the results are somewhat strange.

i.e., I tried equity=99%, SPR=2, the optimal bet sizing came up negative. Would you say this is due to the lack of some form of boundary conditions inherited to the equation?

Great video as always, Tyler.

I've read through some of the previous discussions about how betting big will throw our range off balance. I kinda get the point of your responses, but can I sum it up by saying that you made an exploitative adjustment?

Extremely informative video, Tom. Thank you. Took me about 8 hours to finish the whole thing catching most of what you said :)
