# Giving the Solver What it Wants

#### AKQ

##### Legend
You'l hear in advanced study Poker,
the term "The solver likes to do this"
Well Lets give it What it wants!!

I find it funny,
because we know this, flop tendency, of a light cbet,
we should wonder, if we can ever actually do what it wants in an exemplary fashion.

So even though the solver wants to raise preflop
That action goes against the effectiveness of the solvers theory of betting as small as possible on the flop

Its as if it has different conflicting strategys within itself
The solver interface doesn't show the computer playing
and it doesn't pick 1 choice of action it picks multitudes against range

But like all good SuperVillians
Deep in my secret lab
I have seen the solver become a nueral network,
Pluribus was born
Pluribus played/won a cash game against Joe Hachem and other 7 Pros
It opened with a solid range and good sizing
(which is cash game logic.. think about it.... bet to get value from weaker hands that might call)
So I realized we need to give it what it wants at its core
Not what we have demanded from it
and just like a good Supervillian parent first we have to tell our kids NOOO and then teach em

And in the end we both teach eachother right?
AS an MTT family,
Lotta chash game logic needs to go away forever
So by having a strict limping policy preflop
We can run the solver on almost any spot postflop
and it will give you the same answer
bet 1

but you'll say you often see the solver wants that bet size even if we raise preflop

by why is this 1
MEGA different than betting 1 after raising preflop 2.2?

Pot sizing is smaller 3BB instead of 6
Bet is larger in comparison to the pot 33%
the opponent is less committed

the opponent has less shove /squeeze value
Less chances your BB opponent will want to raise preflop due to being out of position ,when all they have to do is check to see the flop.

Solver bets 1 in position 100%flop

But to check,
when an opportunity to realize high equity on a further street appears.

Having the Superpower to get to the turn ,in a 3 bb pot,in position 90% of the time
We get to see our equity and we get 2 streets of information from our opponent
PLUS the flop check induces a skilled false read from our opponents
So we are getting more value either way, even if we hit or dont,
We get an opportunity to rebluff for a much better pot, than if we first stole it on flop with 1 BB,
PLUS we get to see the opponents bet sizing and make a read or even fold losing that 1 BB we invested

so now we get to the river
This is where me, ABC,Exploitative ,GTO,The Solver and Pluribus have a butt naked party

We have all 5 cards dealtwhilst in position with our entire range camoflauged. We have streets of information
We also have an image
I know this and so does Pluribus and GTO
GTO does various smart sizing mixed shots
Pluribus drinks the whole bottle and bets 2x pot with both value and bluffs
Exploitative would choose a sizing based on what our opponents might have and call down

but I like the option of 1-2BB's on the river
Pluribus and The solver DONT
Y?
it doesn't get bottom pair to fold or even ace high sometimes!!
GTO can do it better and remove even more of his calling range with bigger bets.
Pluribus is so full of shit he has to bet 2x pot to bluff anymore,
but picks alotta good pressure spots and applies

SO to give it everything it needed
I took away the preflop
the unneeded risk
and abused player tendency's preflop by doing so

So on the flop
Bet 1
or check and realize equity or whatever lol

When you hit top pair Ace in position vs BB.... and you are tempted to bet more than 1 bb
Then you are not including inducing in your strategy and giving away information

Ask your self .....how many times have you missed that ace on the flop ,
and min bet and got battled back at by a Shark in the BB or even a maniac/eagle ,with nothing but air and a read

How much of his weaker range continues and gets a good price?
he would be calling 1bb into 4 or 5bb pot 20%-17%~ of the pot
If we get hands to call the 1 BB flop with less equity than 17%-20%
We want them to almost always call the flop bet or raise us with 100% of his range

The turn

Gto likes alotta things(whore)
Solver likes betting small with value and shoving all in with 94 against missed villian ranges to the board that didnt reraise preflop
Exploitative likes protecting hand value and getting value, cash game style

I like checking the turn or betting 1 bb again or mabey 1.5 or 2
I understand all the reasoning to bet and go crazy and have a chip party on the turn
but another thing that is not in your MTT strategy's or reasoning at all
Survival

You are playing a cash game strategy, flipping chances as the favorite.As if poker isn't Bingo,many play it like it is, that's why I say Poker is Bingo
A famous quote always helped me

Play for more than you can afford to lose
Only then will you learn the game

Would you play the same if you only had 1 chance and it meant everything?
The solver doesnt understand that becuase it was programmed for destruction not life

see how I am using the 1 bb bet oop in a different way, to get info so i can fold now to a better AceX
instead of flatting at his price outof position 3 streets

To everyone that knows me
I was the biggest 3x-4x preflop sizing advocate
and wouldn't listen to anyone

Now I'm limping and betting 1bb

This MTT strategy right here is better than anything you will find in the world and requires the least study
but in ability ,it does require it in Spades

Happy Limping and Crushing
And I am available for hire/coaching

I thought on the turn
What is the perfect sizing to get value wiith my flush
Then I realized I'm an idiot and quickly Let Pluribus's and the Solvers logic do the dirty work of 1 BB into a 14 BB pot!!!

opph we got bluff check raised... oh well

Don't misunderstand poker

There are Millions of different spots and opponents
No strategy is optimal for every single one of them

As poker players we must decide what to do
I don't try to play any specific strategy
I aim to be OPTIMAL in every action
So if you understand every tool in the swiss army knife
Why only use the can opener?
