@mobiusdumpling Ok, but interestingly, under this whole discussion you have not provided any examples to counter my argument, nor have you said anything to substantiate your claims

@mobiusdumpling The scenario you mentioned is actually the only situation where GTO is potentially of any use. That is, a situation where your range is comprized of hands either having 0 or 100% equity against your opponent. This is a necessary assumption because in order to play GTO you need full knowledge of range equities between you and your opponent (in most cases, you cannot apply GTO even if you knew your opponent's hand!) So when you think about it, these mathematically tractable scenarios almost never happen.

@mobiusdumpling Well, I am in the not-so-usual position of both having lived as a professional poker player and having a degree in applied mathematics. I have done a lot of systematic analysis of poker situations in terms of game theory and mathematics, but it is quite clear from both my experience and opinions of very good online players that most of this analysis is only ad-hoc, and that it doesn't actually help much in the real world.
