Adding more pairs to the shover's range does not improve your +EV. However, adding unpaired hands does.

2. Jordan Howell says:

How do you factor in the odds of a split pot? Or is that just ignored?

3. Opportunity In China says:

Nice basic intro

4. Nathan Cate says:

For the record. A coin flip isnt 50/50. Though its a close estimate.

5. Da Kid says:

Such an Insightful Video

+https://www.youtube.com/thepokerbankdotcom what about when players are still left to act after you, do you assume they fold and do the minimum, what you already know is guaranteed money won (if you do win)? also do you recalculate this on the flop, turn, then again on the river? and when you do that do you include the money you already bet as money lost? Edit: you don't include the previous bets in the new calculation do you? But still if someone can clarify I would appreciate it.
