At around the 10:30 mark there is a discussion on the best check raise sizing with a wrap on 45Kr. Phil states that while pot is OK, a smaller size might be best and better for range. Why is this so? He says that vs a tougher opponent the smaller raise is best. What are the factors that are moving the needle on this raise size between seemingly close amounts? Jonna102 ultimately chooses 14. I'm lost on this nuance. Please help! Thanks guys.

The discussion at ~35 min was confusing for me. In the cases where the BB is not continuing aggression with his thinner value hands (e.g. T9) wouldn't that make BB more likely to be bluffing, not less? Really enjoyed this video. Thanks Patrick Cronin!

A general comment/question on the usage of PIO. When reviewing the solved output, you say things like "PIO prefers action X vs action Y" when the frequency of one action is larger than the other. For example a call vs a fold, or a bet vs check, or one sizing vs another. It seems very wrong to me to suggest that hands employing mixed strategies have preference one way or the other. Am I wrong?

Near the end, when you review bet sizes on the wet/dry spectrum chart, you talk about how on a board like K9x, a small bet wouldn't be effective at deny the equity of overcards since there are so many gut-shots between the K and the 9. You suggest a larger size instead, maybe 2/3p. Is this always in the context of using a single bet size within a check or bet strategy? Would those 9x hands be included in the 2/3p bet range?
A really great video. Thanks for sharing.

I thought this was an excellent expansion on the original from Sauce123. Specifically the idea of exploring the difference between using frequency instead of face value to evaluate the effectiveness of a candidate bluffing hand.
I have a very difficult time keeping my full range in mind. Do you have any ideas for improving in this area efficiently? It seems to be the primary prerequisite skill for being able to make these types of evaluations.

On the last hand, you talk about hero being uncapped. My initial thought during the drill was that hero is entirely capped at A little given preflop, flop, and turn play. Can a capped range become uncapped on the river? Thanks for the video. Great idea to add clock to away from table analysis.
