Thank you very much! I will get the books and CREV - really appreciate the help. Thank you!
Looking at CREV, GTO+ seems to be a type of add-on to the software. If CREV already includes a solver, is there any value to GTO+?

Thank you very much for your reply, I will follow your advise and work in the order you suggested.
A couple of follow up questions on the points above:
1) Do you have any advise on how to improve my GTO knowledge?
2) I've had a look at the first few instruction videos at CREV. My understanding is that it also includes a solver. In my head I think it would be good to learn more about which part of my range that "I should do" what with. E.g: Let's say I open 70% of buttons, SB folds and BB calls 35% of his range. Flop is XXX, which part of my range does the solver recommend I c-bet given stack sizes etc. Is this something the CREV program can do? Can it also run these calculations if SB and BB calls and we are 3 handed to the flop?
3) What specifically is it that the PioSolver can do that CREV can't?
Once again, thank you very much for your kind help.

I am returning to poker after having been away from the game for a while. I played professionally over 10 years ago but the last few years I’ve only played a couple of times a month.
I would like to try to put in some work to be able to compete in todays game, I understand solvers, PIO, Monkier, GTO+ etc. Plays a big party in todays theory, but I am lost on where to start.
1) Any advice on where to start to learn to work with solvers?
2) Which solver do you recommend for a beginner? I am looking for a reasonably priced option for NL200-1k, 6max.
Any advice in general is much appreciated.

You do want to maximize your value when you have the nuts, and by calling you are guaranteed to see a turn, i.e. you will face that potential though turn decsion 100% of the time, and you have zero information about villians hand. On top of that, every time villian have 77xx etc you are loosing a lot of value.
For me, this is a raise.

I think you overplay your hand pre flop here as you will end up getting in to a lot of difficult post flop situations, where you most likely never will have the nuts, or nut draw ( unless you flop top set ofc). Personally I would fold this pre flop to avoid difficult post flop situations.
Someone correct me if I am wrong.
As played on the flop, I would ship, close my eyes and hope I am not up against a dominating flush draw.
Some calculations for you:
