I don't even know of another solver tbh.

I'm pretty new to 2+2 and can't seem to find an option for PMing. How do I PM you?

I think you need 10 posts before you can send PMs, but a more powerful mod than me can give you the right to post PMs sooner than that in emergencies.

Hi Matthew!

I must say I dig you book and your honest and layback teaching style, very likeable.

I have a question about Table III: Button 4-Betting Range:
There seems to lack some explanation why you put, A4o-A5o, K2s-K4s in this table. I guess the hands are there to mix in some bluffing hands, but I dont grasp why these hands are the better ones to bluff with in that case. Hope you can shed some light on it.

Ok, so obviously If you were to only 4-bet the strongest six or seven hold 'em hands pre your 4-betting range would be very narrow and pretty easy to read, plus you'd be passing up opportunities to deny equity, build the pot, and make yourself more difficult to play against. This indicates that you should 4-bet some hands other than the very best, but hands like ATs play quite well in position in a 3-bet pot, so flatting these good, but not great hands is probably often the correct play. In other words there's probably more cons than pros 4 betting ATs pre in position when compared to 4-betting K4s in position. Hands like K4s and A5 have some value, but not so much value that you hate your life if you're 5-bet. Not getting to see a flop in position with ATs is a disaster. In a nutshell you want to 4-bet more than just the best hands, but the second and third tier hands play too well as a flat to regularly 4bet, so that leaves hands like K4s as the perfect candidates to widen your 4-betting range beyond the obvious best hands.

This is a good answer.

AX also blocks an ace, and K4s also has a very robust equity component (the flush draw).

If your opponent is 5-bet jamming with AK/JJ+ and a few AXs,, then blocking an ace blocks a pretty good chunk of combos.

If I would have to reraise vs. a tight non-polarized range, I wouldn't do it with Ax, although it blocks the ace, so the board more likely runs without an ace. But I am not that crazy.
