comment KQo on wet board
I think you've focused too much on trying to make a bona fide hand, instead of trying to work out if the villain will fold, and how much it'll cost to make them do so. You missed a key opportunity on the turn and another less promising opportunity on the river as Brent Morrow has explained well. The take away: focus more on sniffing out when your opponent is weak, and less on making strong hands.

comment What kind of plays could I make to convince my opponents that I have a polarised hand range?
@ValentinGrégoire I like that kind of style as well but it can often make opponents play tighter. I prefer confusion to fear as it leads to my opponents making more mistakes.

Great answer! It informed me a lot, especially about the straddle (always forgotten to look that up). +1

comment Simplest Way to Explain EV to Beginners
This explanation actually clears up some of my own misconceptions. This is certainly a great way to explain to amateur poker players who already have a basic understanding. I'd like to find a way to combine this answer with one of the practical demonstrations that others have suggested. Also, I'd like to know more about reverse-implied odds, re-draws and anticipating future bets, have you got an online resource you could point me to or do you learn from books and other resources?

comment Simplest Way to Explain EV to Beginners
@mattatmusiclist I have filled them in on basics, and crude math (not technically correct rounding and approximations), such as how to figure out how many cards they can hit, how much each card is worth (2% for simplicity and ease of understanding) and how to figure out their chance of hitting it (basically double your odds if there are two cards to come etc). I don't expect them to grasp advanced poker concepts overnight, so I'm just trying to inform them sufficiently and send them off on the right path to becoming a decent poker player.

@JohnDibling thanks for the advice, though I'm well aware of that and in fact I also use it for extracting value and shutting down risky hands.

Real nice opening sentence. I enjoy punishing aggro-donks with the check raise. :)

comment What does the Dealer button have to do with the dealer?
@RayofCommand from your article: "dealer button is a marker used to indicate the player who is dealing or, in casino games with a house dealer, the player who acts last on that deal (who would be the dealer in a home game)". One player is always the dealer; dedicated (or house) dealers just deal on behalf of that player. That player (the real dealer) is last to act, because the action starts from the left of the dealer (SB, BB and then UTG/first-to-act).
