4. Preflop Re-raising Theory

  1. A lot of outdated theory in my view:

    Board texture deserves its own lecture on how various board textures favour various ranges. What is true is that board texture very often determines bet sizing (made hands often bet larger on draw heavy boards in order to offer incorrect odds on a call, and bet smaller on dry boards to incentivize callers).
    Tournament play also differs fairly heavily from cash games due to the blinds increasing and causing stack sizes to always decrease. There are also arguments over making certain plays due to chip EV vs tournament EV (this can lead to checking down when a player is all in, folding premium hands vs a shove, and calling shoves with a larger stack).
    SPR or Stack To Pot (ratio) also needs to be considered as smaller ratios lead to commitment to a pot, increasing the value of weaker hands (Top Pair, Good Kicker), while deeper SPRs rarely get stacks in the middle without two monster hands (flush vs flush or better)
