Not considering exploitative adjustments in poker is extremely counter productive and misleading

This is actually one of the main reasons why I did this. Are we not playing exploitatively by checking our entire range on some boards? Of course, it would be a big mistake on a lot of boards.
I agree with a lot of what you said, but if we can make our life a hell of a lot easier by checking range, and villain doesnt adjust accordingly, we might gain EV by implementing this strategy and knowing this tree better than our opponent. For the record, I am just talking about boards such as 662s, 532s etc where we are already checking 70%+ at equilibrium

Hey guys,

Im looking for opinions on how much EV we are willing to sacrifice in terms of bb/100 in order to simplify our strategy. For example, I ran a few scripts in PIO for blind vs blind srp, one where we can cbet two sizings as the sb, and one where we check our entire range. I then began comparing the EV loss between the two strategies on different boards, and I was quite lost when it comes to identifying a threshold for when implementing a pure check strategy becomes worth it with regards to the lack of EV we gain from implementing the more complicated mixed strategy.

Here is a look at how big/small the EV difference looks on some boards in bb/100

Hi all

Im looking for advice on fixing big leaks in small pots. Im currently a 2-3bb winner at 100z, but lately I have been feeling stuck in a rut and struggling to improve. For pretty much my entire poker life I have had quite a severe downward sloping redline which never really worried me as I was winning quite consistently. However, I recently filtered my database for pots between 5bb-20bb, and what I got was quite possibly the ugliest graph i've ever seen (below) :D. Its quite clear I have a ton of issues with passivity fighting for small pots and I dont really know where to start when trying to address them. Anyone have any ideas and/or are there any specific RIO videos on the topic that anyone could reccomend?
