Late update! Was on a vacation over the last week, but fortunately was able to play some interesting hands in a 2-5 game. Played 15 hours and won \$520. Also played in a very low stakes app game with friends, which I do very often. I don't record this but made money. Most interesting hand that I played from the week.

800 effective
UTG opens to 15
CU calls
BU Hero reraises to 60
Both villains call

Flop 432dd
Checks to Hero
Hero bets 75 (misclick, meant to go slightly larger)
Villain (UTG) Calls

Turn 3c
Hero Bets 175
Villain jams

Gonna try to figure out if there is a way to add a spoiler to the result.

Hey guys. I'm Titled Primate. I am currently playing 25nl on Bovada and 2/5 live. Very much a recreational player but looking to start to take my game more seriously. I have mainly worked on my game through studying some of Alvin Lau's stuff and RIO theory videos (love Qing Yang). Will hopefully make some longer posts and try to update weakly

Goals
1. Play 5k hands a month
2. Play 10 hours of live poker a week
3. Create a more structured study plan

Post | TiltedPrimate posted in NLHE: Polarized Flop Betting

In Peter Clarke's From the Ground Up Course, he discusses Polarized Strategies. It is not clear to me how to decide the ratio of how much we bluff in these scenarios vs the the frequency in which we bet for value. Should we as a baseline, bluff at a frequency that combined with our bet size, would make the opponent indifferent to calling or folding based on our ratio of bluff to value, and then adjust based on the tendencies of the player or pool?

I also understand that many of our bluffs on early streets still have significant equity when called, so should we not consider these as pure bluffs and instead try to add some low equity hands that block value into our bluffing range instead?

Often, we are told to follow a polarized strategy when betting or raising. How should we decide what portion of our raising/betting range is composed of bluffs and what portion is value. It is obvious to me that the larger the bet size, the more bluffs we can add. Is this all we should consider. I am particularly interested in the Flop Raising section.

For instance, when we raise polarized, with a pot sized raise we are given the villain 2-1, so should my raising range be 33% bluffs and 67% value (adjusting this exploitively). How do we balance our linear raising ranges (what hands do we subtract to add medium strength hands)?
