  1. Gross, is the river almost always a fold? Not sure if this is a full ring or 6 handed. No reads on villain but bombing the river is almost always a boat right? Maybe i’m just super nitty.

  2. Just call, no hand makes any fucking sense other than AK or AA for value and both of those are HEAVILY discounted because a) no one plays them that way (what’s gonna call???) and b) we block them. What does make sense is a middle pair that reluctantly check called and then thought they could scare you off worse pairs.

  3. Interesting that the podcast made Andrew decide to buy more crypto, it’s made me decide to sell. I got into BTC at $700 a year ago so I suppose I have satisfied my “fear of missing out”. I thought Andrew’s point was very self-perceptive about how it doubling if he didn’t buy it would hurt more than it going to zero if he did.

    It was only mentioned in passing, but I’ve heard a lot of American and other sources equating Trump with Brexit (including Farage doing the same). Not wanting to politard these comments, but I’d say that in some ways they are opposites. The US voters have changed the personalities but locked down how the system works (e.g. with Supreme Court nominees who will stop reform of e,.g. campaign financing), whereas the UK voters have left essentially the same people in charge but made a massive change to how the system works.
