Thank You RCP

I am pretty new but have done a lot of studying. Much of CORE is therefore "review." But I have learned so much from going through this material again with the assistance of RCP. Almost every lesson I pick up a nuance or a fresh way of looking at the familiar. This study is already helping my game. I am posting the hand below, as an example of the benefits of working my way through CORE. A little hand reading, a little pot odds math (and a backdoor flush draw) go a long way....

Online Cash - .02/.05 5NL FR

BB checks, Hero bets 10.4 bb, fold, Villain (MP) raises to 38.4 bb, fold, fold, Hero calls 28 bb (V is a maniac (58/47/16; VPIP/PFR/3Bet). How many treys or deuces can V have here? Even if V did hold A2s (3), A3s (2), 22 (3), or 33 (1) (9 combos total), does an over pair with a backdoor flush draw call anyway? Needs 30%, has 34%)
