In Response To: Beaver calculus (Dmitriy Obukhov)
Well, in practice you will most likely never get doubled and be TGTB, so if it happens it might be wise to think about whether you are not only too good, but way too good, like in Michael's example. The doubler may be wanting you to beaver to get away with paying only double the cube value instead of 2.something resulting from a likely BG. If the normalized equity of the position is nowhere near 2.0 the doubler has probably not intended the above trick, and is likely to accept the beaver - even if he should in theory drop.
Otherwise, the term "too good to beaver" is most useful in social chouettes, where you can meet any cries of "easy take" with "I am not thinking about the take, I am thinking about the beaver ... but I don't think it is a beaver ... I think I am too good ..."
