I counted at least fuor mistaeke hiere. Anyone can find five ?
I think some of it may simply be looseness in the language. The first two sentences are meant to be position-specific. For example, if I assume (which seems reasonable) that EV(SB)>EV(BB), then my second and third sentences should be interpreted as
GTO play from the BB
just means that you will (on average) lose the minimum. It doesn't guarantee a positive (or even zero) EV in the big blind
I left off those qualifiers because I don't know with certainty that the inequality does
in fact run that way (though experience and reading the discussions of other players suggests it does).
I don't see other errors, but would be interested to have them pointed out.
