Hi; I have always been a good fan of your thinking process in term of metagame value range vs bluff range at each step of a hand... I recently decided to go a little bit further on my maths approach of poker. can you please do again one or two hands review using CREV... I have also decided to use cofeeCalc for bigblind vs small blind in the intend to see if I can start learning hyperturbo sitandgo in the future. What is your opinion on those tools ? Thanks.

I'll likely do some more CREV vids in the future - they are pretty time intensive so I'm not 100% sure when though. I like CREV a lot and think it can be super useful for analyzing many different scenarios. I'm actually not familiar with CoffeCalc at all, maybe I'll have to check it out!

Hey great video.
The concept of we shouldn't be check raising any of our range and similar ideas are pretty new to me, and this video really helped in that regard.

Quick question. If we called a 3bet with pocket 2's OOP, for whatever reason... Misclick , etc....
And the board comes down 4 4 2 rainbow, should we check raise it? Obviously none of our range makes sense to raise here, so we should get looked up a lot lighter?

If we are trying to exploit our opponents it might make a lot of sense to x/r if we think that he will often float us very light or try to rebluff us if he thinks we are very weak. Flat calling tends to do better if we are up against an opponent who will barrel overcards a ton to get us off of a perceived range full of mid pairs
