  1. I think this is kinda BS. Are they able to track someone’s play, say on Hustler or the Bike, when the cards are known to then give a % ratio score of how well the player played according to GTO?
    Almost like card counting, most players think they are playing well, but really arn’t?

  2. I kind of get it and don't at the same time. GTO gives you solutions, okay, but how are you going to put that into practice?

    For example, how many times that J9s scenario you mentioned is going to come up in a session? How are going to randomise it 70 to 30?
    As far as live goes, IDK how are going to keep track of all these stats, with everything else that's going on.

    In online, you can randomise yes, but there's so much player movement, I don't understand what would be the point of randomising when in practice you're going to be in such scenarios, against a specific player, very very rarely? I don't know if either of player can remember/track these…

  3. You also have to keep in mind that everything in the world is chess now, and that poker is no exception to that rule.

  4. It used to be alot more fun for watching. Analytics rule everytime now but, the bluffs are funner to see. I miss the head games.
