As (ex) poker players, this sort of thing comes natural to us. Not everybody views these things in terms of math and EV automatically, though. And as much as I hate Jennifer as a commentator (she's just bad at it, imo), she's usually the one holding the other two accountable math-wise, and poker savvy EV-wise. Not this time for some inexplicable reason, though. She spouted some, "winner of the flip should maybe choose white" BS, too.
