As a treat you get to dive into some free chapters from the newest poker book, GTO Poker Gems.

The very first chapter focuses on the complexity of a pure GTO solution and the reasons why a game like NLHE (or even PLO) has slim chances of really being solved in our lifetime. We explore comparisons between GTO and exploitative approaches as seen through the lens of simplified solved games, and at the same time breaking down when these comparisons simply fall short.

The following chapter goes into GTO bluffing and leverages the perfect polarization model in order to draw out some macro ideas about bluffs in today’s poker. And a hint at why we can’t have nice things: we attempt to break the solver.

We hope you get a kick out of it!
