Should I make a thread 'Questioning tofurocks as Jonna102's shill'?

You can't have one function f for all river situations.
For instance when you have
(X)KsKhKdKc vs my
(X)AsKsQsJs

then you can't bet for value obviously. And when I bet I only rep one hole card the Ts. So when I bluff you will have a 1 in 43 chance of blocking me with the Ts yourself. Also when you have an A you block my bluffs as I would be more likely to play AAsKs than 6hAsKs. Betting very large for me here will be optimal.

But when you have

(X)AsAc5c6h vs my
(X)KsKhQc7h

I must bet much smaller, because a Q or 7 gives me two pair that will have 70-80% equity and a K will give me around 95%, but you can always have an ace and be sure to beat me. So bluffing with an ace becomes interesting for me. Potentially you would be looking at multiple betsizes here.

And those are just two simple spots.

Others are impersonating my identity (GayTheory, Game Theory┬┤s Instructor etc)
and they don't get banned by the moderators! Why does nobody make a Jonna callout thread for that?

This thread reminds of when the bodybuilding.com moderator Teampunishment was questioned and someone made this video:

Playmoney HU is all fun and games until one someone loses a buyin and starts shoving every hand and loses 100 buyins.

If you can't beat them, join them. You already know their strategy.

You can search for PLO8, there are a few videos. Also a couple videos about NLO8 and 5 card PLO8.

If you ask this as a math question, then the answer to not getting 3-bet is
(0.95)^5 = 0.77
So the chance of getting 3-bet is 23%.

Poker is not math, in poker you have card removal effects. Having blockers to the respective 3-bet ranges means that you will get 3-bet less frequent.

Comment | GameTheory commented on GTO equals to 0 ev?

You can make it a zero-sum three-player game by way of giving two grenades to player A, he has the option to give a grenade to player B and C each, or to discard the grenades.

Then players B and C are put in the room for one hour and have the option to let their grenade explode with the other player in the room. Player A waits safely outside of the room. If B and C die, player A gets their inheritance, so the game is zero sum.

A GTO solution is for player A to hand out the grenades and for B and C to not let their grenade explode. But if B or C deviates then the other player in the room doesn't realize his GTO payoff.

Comment | GameTheory commented on 99 vs 2 opponents

If you fold this river, how wide could your opponents float here?

Against this (wide) range, how high up in your range is 99 on this runout?

Stopped watching after 18:32 where you timed out instead of raised.

Isn't blocking AA and A5s a thing with AQ so that AQ>>QT ?

AQ also blocks bluffs when you use AK to bluff here, so no:

March 7, 2017 | 12:50 p.m.

This line seems fine, you are going to have KK-AA and a 5 more frequent than your opponent. Blocking the A5s combo makes this hand extra strong.

Blocking AQ matters less since QT=AQ on this river, and AK would be a prime candidate for bluffing here.

For balance you should mix up your play. For instance checkcalling the flop or going smaller for value with other AA combos (that don't block A5s).

I was under the impression that... GTO IS DEAD

If GTO is dead, then how can it be optimal to take the risks this person is taking, defying death:
