Jack revisits 3 big losing hands and works out the EV for different decisions in each. Many players would consider these hands to be "coolers", when in reality if you do a little mathematics you will find that big losses could have been avoided or better decisions could have been made.

There is a small amount of mathematics in this video. Don't worry though, Jack does a very good job of explaining what is going on at all times. As long as you focus a little you will be fine.

This video was created using Power Point. Hands are not "replayed" in the usual format, but instead converted hands (using a hand history converter) have been placed on individual slides. Following each hand there are slides containing EV calculations to help show you why some decisions would prove to be more profitable than others.
