Welcome to RIO, Vlada!

My apologies to you, as well as others who have expressed a similar sentiment, for the delayed response.
We believe that while Vision is a very fast study tool, it’s impractical to use as RTA for most realistic game-play scenarios.
To further discourage this unintended usage, we just updated the software so that all data for a street is preloaded. This adds an additional ~4 seconds of load time when pulling up the flop, for instance, but makes all actions taken on the flop instantaneous. This is beneficial for a person using the tool for its intended purpose of studying the game while making it more difficult for someone to use it as an RTA. We will continue to work on ways to ensure that Vision has limited effectiveness as an RTA tool while maintaining the user’s experience as a study tool.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, we took significant steps to allow for the detection of Vision for RIO Poker. We have also proactively reached out to other sites offering to help them with detection. If we get an indication that Vision is being abused, we will absolutely take further steps to prevent it.

Yup, by default Vision will give you hands in multiple spots. You can fine-tune this with the checkboxes in the left side panel. For example, if you just want to practice flops, uncheck all Turn options by clicking Turn under the ACTIONS section. Let me know if that helps and feel free to join the Vision Discord channel if you'd like assistance in real-time.

If you'd like to practice as the BB in a 3BP, just untick SRP under the TYPE category.
BB 100% checks in single raised pots, so if you'd like to practice as BB in a SRP, untick 3BP under the TYPE category, and click on X->Bet in the ACTIONS Flop category.

I'd rather not get into the exact specifics of how we're policing this in a public forum. :)
That said we put a ton of time into implementing the best solution possible and continue to re-evaluate new technology to prevent the usage of any and all real-time software assistance on Run It Once Poker.

Hey endymion, thanks for all the questions!
1) What rake structure is used? It looks like it could all be rake for $1/$2 game?
Rake structure is modeled after 500 Zoom (5%, 1200 msb).
2) How high quality are the preflop ranges used for the outputs?
In excess of 100 iterations per node.
3) WIll there be 200bb situations added?
This is on the product roadmap but we don't have a firm date at this time.
4) How many iterations per node for postlfop spots?
20 iterations per node.
5) Will there be multiway spots?
This is on the product roadmap.
6) Will there be ways to study exploitative solutions?
We are not planning to add this capability to the core product, but you can practice your own sims now using the Custom mode, located in the Practice tab.
7) Why at the end of the "Getting started" does it say UTG will be added but you can already toggle to UTG position with the seat icon (it makes me wonder if the graphic is just incorrect and in fact, it is another positions ranges that are in play).
Sorry for the confusion here - UTG spots are currently available up to the flop, all other spots are available up to the turn. Adding river spots for all spots is on the product roadmap.
8) How did they choose which spots to have multiple bet sizes or not, and how can we know how much EV we are losing when adopting a simpler strategy?
Postflop bet sizing options were chosen to optimize for maximum EV through testing multiple sizing options across a large sample of boards in MonkerSolver. Sizings were then reviewed and adjusted by a group of high stakes PLO players, but these adjustments were only made if the EV loss was not significant.
For example, on monotone boards, 1/10 pot size bets are often maximum EV, but this sizing is not commonly used in practice, and not significantly different in terms of overall EV than the 33% sizing used in Vision. Of course, you can quiz any sizing you like in Custom mode.
