Well, ideally you understand how much value hands are your value hands, then you decide with the sizing and after that pick percentage of hands, you need to bluff with. And after that, you think of blockers, and select bluffs according to having positive blockers.

Can someone explain, why would you add suited connectors to your preflop range at all, if you start to hit flop much less, then just plain 13%, that flopzilla suggests? When you RFI with suited connectors, you're basically playing fit or fold, and you're supposed to fold much more. You would say, that suited connectors have high implied odds, but they actually don't! Everybody is insanely cautious about them and fold pretty often, so you get close to no action, if any. So, tell me, why are we supposed to play low (not broadway) suited connectors in the first place?

Is it possible to literally be a GTO machine? To really think in ranges fast enough to narrow the possible opponent hands in their bluff and value ranges and all of it would be contained in your head in a table like the one you get in starting preflop charts?
Just curious, haven't seen a poker pro, who would actually describe HOW he/she thinks, in what terms, what do they imagine in their head, what are they operating with in their head.
Does anyone know that? Or anyone think exactly in ranges, i.e. in tables?

I'm currently studying From The Ground Up.
Peter covered polarized and flop ranges and then combos.
What I'm curious about is whether or not a good player supposed to build ranges and count combos on the fly or is it supposed to be prepared beforehand?

A lot of defending range charts suggest to defend with range that is slightly tighter, then the UTG range
My question is "why?"
I tried out in Equilab and saw that the BU opening range has 40% equity vs UTG open range, and if the UTG raises 3BB we get pot odds 3/7.5 which is exactly 40% to break even. So, why are ranges tighter to defend and not wider to the contrary?
Thanks for the answer in advance
