My questions are: 1. How did they come to these defense numbers? I'm assuming they're talking about min defense freqs. but 85% seems higher than the actual minimum defense frequency. I understand that MDF cannot be exactly translated this way on earlier streets as a lot of other factors apply, but it seems high, and why would it be higher than the raw MDF as we are still out of position with a weak/wide range? 2. How did/do they determine what percentage of our range should be used as 3 bets vs calls? I'm assuming they just found the hands they thought were good as "value" 3 bets and then balanced it with some bluffs in an appropriate frequency, but how exactly did they/should I determine this frequency? Thanks so much!

If you play MDF from BB, SB can raise any2 and be guaranteed at least 0ev, even if he never wins the post postflop. In reality any hand has a chance to win the pot postflop, so his real EV will be >0 for any hand. So you should defend wider otherwise he prints money raising 100% of his hands. The 85% is just the number of hands thats +ev to defend in the equilibrium. Only way to find this number is in practice through trial and error, MDF is useless before the river 2. Playing a lot of hands and comparing the EVs of flatting and 3betting with all hands. Or they took the solution from a solver. The way u describe could be used in the past to get a rough estimate of the ranges, but now there are solvers that can give u the exact solution. There is no way to get the detailled numbers with reasoning or theorization. Hands are +ev because they are +ev
