I was wondering… (I can not answer myself even closely)
What happen if I take out of the charts the low equity marginal PFR combos (about 10% of them. I’m using poker coaching ones) and I also reduce my 3-bet bluffs (about 25%) and calling overall with some strong-ish 3-bet fold hands (say AQo)
Does my EV is going to change a lot or just a little bit?
I am aware that GTO charts should not be blinded followed and adjustments have to be done when playing with different opponents
The reasons i ask this is because I find it difficult to balance my range post flop with all the recommended GTO combos and a lot easier after I constructed my new ranges on equilab (pretty much what’s described above)
I played with this new ranges and I’ve found myself much more calm playing as I kinda felt to have more under control
Also, variance seemed lower even though I haven’t played enough with these slightly tighter ranges
My main question is: does 3-bet bluff less (overall) and taking off the least EV hands on the charts affect my game a lot?
Not sure if the question is a good one or not but I can’t answer myself so I decided to ask you here guys
Thank you for all your opinions/answers
