In this talk we will give an introduction of Heegaard-Floer theory through examples. By exploring several explicit examples we hope to show that various aspects of the definitions that seem complicated, really aren't too bad and it really is possible to work with these fairly abstract things. While this is technically a continuation of last weeks talk, we will review enough material so that this talk should be self contained.
