In this specific case, it is not about you being torn about making a decision, it about you being torn about what you would have preferred him to do. If you’re not torn, but just simply don’t care, then it’s not ambivalence.

Any predictions for the Idaho students murders? Sadly, it definitely feels like serial killer stuff.

You would be ambivalent if you knew that him folding was +EV, but also you are a degen gambling addict who would like to get a dopamine squirt, so you aren’t sure which you would rather he do.

I don’t think it’s correct to say you are ambivalent about two different possibilities. It’s in the nature of how the word is used that you are ambivalent about one known quantity, be it a person or thing or situation or whatever.

I never heard of this guy until like a month ago when he interviewed Hikaru.

I wasn’t too impressed with Fridman’s side of the interview, but just looking at the archives he has a lot of long conversations with interesting people.

I don’t need 3 hours with Jordan Peterson or Ben Shapiro but I wish I had time for a few hours with Rick Rubin or Jaron Lanier or Stephen Wolfram or Brian Greene.

His voice is so annoying, and he loves riding rogan.
