Postflop Poker Podcast - Episode 70 - Elastic Ranges

Our first Mikeless production was supposed to be a shorter episode, but two interesting posers sent us into overtime. First, we talk about taking marginal flips early in tournaments using an example from patron David B. Then, we discuss the concept of elasticity and how this might impact our decision-making. The stratchat hand features a river bluff, which may or may not have been a good idea. What do you think? Next episode, we welcome an additional sponsor, as Ben delves into the GTO world courtesy of PIO Solver.
