I think you think I have a larger semi-bluffing rate than I actually do.
Not only that, but thru the course of 3 or 4 orbits we can make a determination of how we will play individual players at our table. Possibly thru long term stats, maybe V1 has been active or inactive so far in this session (ring or tourney).
We may determine we can play V1 aggressively, but can not play V2 that way. (Villain1, Villain2,etc.etc.).
If you are talking about first hand, first session against all villains, you want to establish a baseline raise that achieves the goals you want, which is usually for everyone to muck. At which point you might decide you want action and then know what that baseline raise is likely to do, and you might decide you need to adjust that next raise to get that action.
In essence, I don't like your counter argument to my original argument.
