    The second hand from the Office Hours #3 podcast from Dave:
    2/5. Solid HJ $20, Button calls, Hero calls BB 8d9d.
    Pot $60. Flop TcJc4d. Hero check/calls $35...

    @lindppr proposes a very robust flop checkraising range, since we have a lot of hands that hit this board (2P+). I normally don't raise that much in this spot since we're so wide completing from the big blind that those 2P+ hands actually make up a small portion of our overall range. Fiddling around with the hand in a solver seems to support this, as I get a higher raising range when I input a tighter OOP range the checkraise range goes up, but still not a huge amount (18% with range, 41% with actual hand).

    1) Seems like the percentage of hands that are strong value a bigger factor is a bigger factor than sheer number of hands, no?
    2) Knowing we have such a wide BB range, should that preclude us from checkraising so frequently?

    Im not sure how wide we are here calling 4x from HJ after button calls. Maybe 30-40% of hands? I am pretty sure that Dave called in this hand on a call in show and I also endorsed a check raise. Especially with the bd flush draw.

    I think where you might find less check raises is calling from the Sb. Like say Hj opens SB calls. We would have to really watch out frequency there. Bart
