    Very well done. I understood everything you said. Probably because there was no what the opponent hand charts.
    When you show the chart with what you think they have, I don’t understand how you pick those cards without even seeing the flop. Thank you

    Thanks Jonathan, very informative again as I played a hand similar to this, doing the same as Daniel did but losing a lot more chips in the hand. I know now to shove instead of check on the flop.

    How does the fact that Daniel is out of position work into the hand.
    It seems that he could wait for a better spot in position.
    Is my thinking off on this?

    Thx so much–this hand was oddly liberating. After watching, I went to my local 1-2 game and opened UTG for 10 with AKs. Got 3 callers, then the flop came 9s8s7h. It goes bet 28, call, fold to me. Effective stacks 170 I shoved. Got called by 2 pair and lost. But looking back, my guess is that I had a 40% chance of a fold and a 35% chance of winning if called, which is positive EV (about 30 if my math is right). I also made it back later when I flopped a straight and stacked someone in a way that usually doesn’t happen. As I said, I can see the vistas this opens up–I really appreciate your help.
