Some beginner question need help to clear up the confusion...
1. I know solver is a gto solution vs a perfect strategy and is baseline of exploitative approach. However in reality we never play against opponents using that strategy(at least not low stakes). So doesn't that mean we might bluff too much or calling too much or folding too much when try to learn and play this strategy? And why all the good players still spending most of the time in solvers?
- How to correctly approach solver in a way that builds up good solid fundamentals?

No reads on villain, please share ur thoughts on bb turn size and river size
SB opens bb calls with J6dd
flop 557 dds pot 6 bb
SB checks, bb bets 4, SB calls
Turn Ks pot 14
SB checks bb bets 19bb SB calls,
River Js 52bb
Sb checks bb bets 70bb SB jams 220bb,BB calls and wins with J6dd, SB shows 78hh

Very gd point on pop tendencies. Guess he made an exploitative fold there, btw he didn't explain much tho.. H2, that's right.. Ppl tend to defend 4b polarized guess alot of TX and Ax but guess Tx doesn't make sense to size up.. However he certainly can have some weaker Ax like AJ Aq check back turn bet river but for myself.. I usually just crying call there.... Not much bluffs combo tho even 88 toJJ folded flop probably

Hi Thanks for your reply. H1 he mentioned villain never bet AJ or A5 here... and don't see many bluffs... But i agree seems quite a few bluffs he could have like JTss KJss or even some ambitious Qx turned into bluff?
H2 don't u think this is very close spot as hero almost never have an Ace? But we also blocks all of his flop float draws? like KQss QJss Q9ss etc....
For me... i almost call all the time in these spots... What's missing in my thinking process?? Feel much like im a calling station

Just saw this hand on YouTube from a goose.score playing rush nl200, He ended up folding in both hands which I usually would've talked myself into a call these spots.
As it seems we are under repping our hand.. I always think ppl try to push me off my weak range. Thinking there should be some leaks in my thinking process... Guys thoughts? What should be the proper thinking process looks like otr? I think i always level myself into a call too much this spots.
200NL gg rush, sb vs utg, 100 bb eff

I think im solid at nl16 to 25 zoom.
Im pretty good adjust accordingly to each player types.But i just cant grind at nl25 zoom. Feels so hard to get a read during a hand.
Mostly this problem starts from preflop. Someone 3bets me. Im not so sure abt the right decision. sometime i just plan to cold call 3bet. And take it down when he checks. I usually wins alot of small pot n lose my whole buy in in these spots. I just cant grind.
Whats the best game to grind ? zoom or regular?
