Glad to hear that!
An overlay in this context means extra money in the pot improving your odds. It can occur on any betting round.
Pot size definitely impacts fold equity. Higher pot size usually lessens your fold equity but also improves the potential reward. When we say "good fold equity," we usually mean relative to this reward, i.e. there's a good risk-reward ratio.
With A8s, could you elaborate on this question? It's a strong hand for 25bb BB-vs-button, which is why we're happy to play it with a call or 3-bet. Happy to talk more about this hand so just let me know, thanks!
Thanks a lot for explaining this! About the A8s, I meant why should we not like a min-raise 3-bet and then have to call or fold facing a shove? I know we should be aggressive and always try to take the initiative but is this the only reason why a min-raise is a worse move?
