Hi JFo. I like the idea of this question, but what I like most about it is that it could be about 3-4 distinct questions rather than one big one! Please consider splitting the post into individual questions, that focus more closely on each aspect you're hoping to learn more about. Also, you'd no doubt get a lot more responses, as people would give clearer, more succinct answers and not essay length responses as this seems it would need. Some of the questions you propose are likely already covered on the site.

comment The Importance of Mathematics in Poker
Bluffing correctly would actually be part of a mathematically optimal strategy, so although it might be more frequent, without extra information about profitability, it's problematic to assume that it's more or less important than any single part of a total strategy.

Nice post, but I think the specific example you give is incorrect. maybe a typo? The matchup you state give's the Hero ~82% equity at this point. Otherwise, the post brings up some interesting points.

comment The right bluff frequency
@SonerGönül A "bluff" frequency calculation is just a weighted equity calculation where you would manipulate the folding frequency of the opponent to figure out if your action was +EV. So, yes, there is a formula.
