BigFiszh your the one doing all the ranting. I make a genuine post you call it a joke. I said thanks to guy for helping and you just steam in moaning.

But no worries I'll deactivate my account, I can't be around people like you thought policing.

Pretty scary that no one really knows. It must be based on raw equity. Thanks for taking the time to comment really helped me.

Yeah your right, what makes poker so different to any other game is the hidden information. But see this is what I'm asking, what makes 53s -ev, what is the theory to know that..

Does anyone know how the solvers get there preflop solutions. What calculations do they use. Say I open a hand a get 3bet, what calculation does the solver do to decide whether to call or fold. Or is this unknown.

Wow what great responses never thought about 54s suited like that but it makes sense. I guess I've always just play suited connectors for the implied odds. I've never thought about them as making strong pairs. But your right in HUs where the ranges become so wide the BB should start 3betting more. So all those suited connectors, start becoming mandatory 3bets and good players on the button adjust by starting to call hands like k10os or j6ss,

I think what confuses me is GTO means playing every hand optimally. Now in any other thing in life, if someone does things optimally it usually has a much wider range. For example I'd expect the best chess player in the world to play loads more different opens than a novice player. So when I heard about GTO poker I expected to see it playing loads more hands than the average person, because it knows the optimal strategy. I thought it would go after the dead money in the blinds a lot more. However GTO is saying the optimal strategy is to play tight and play less hand and I wondered why that is. It doesn't really seem to care about implied odds.

Genuinely can't believe you moved it. Thanks for ruining my day

Post | tbeckett posted in NLHE: Why NOT open these hands??

Why are GTO opening ranges so tight in early positions? It says open 54s 78s UTG, but then folds 68s 64s type hands. How are these not the same hands?? I can never get my head around the theory. What is the selection process? What separates 78s from 68s???

It's something I've never really cared about, but now every man and his dog has a training site, and all I keep seeing is preflop ranges and now I've got confused lol.

Thank you for such a detailed response. Really appreciate it

Clearly its the right play. I just can't get my head round the theory. What do you mean by condensed. I've never used a solver so this is fascinating.

" OOP is just automatically gaining EV with stronger portions of his ranges." not sure I understand this point, but it seems important.

I was thinking the IP has a tonne of suited connectors and broadways that would have
to fold to a small bet. But by the sounds of it, the solver will call these hands. So the range bet achieves nothing.

Then I'm guessing the solver is also checking all it's under pairs oop, and therefore to balance you need to be checking tonnes of Ax. Therefore check is better.

Does the solver just check fold OOP KQs QJs type hands. Or are these the hands it
likes to check raise.

Pre Flop: UTG(great player) opens 109hh, Button calls. Blinds Fold

Flop: A25dcc

I noticed that the UTG player was always checking these boards. Mainly check folding. What is the theory behind this check??

I thought these Ace boards are great for UTG, and therefore expected a small cbet, to try and win the pot. But the great players
seem to have a strong checking range on these boards, many check folds.
