But what was the INTENTION of these writings? I think it leaves room for interpretation.

Thank you, God. My logic has been finally described for what it is: too basic. How on earth can I refract my MIP game? Cannot we out-level Villain's math on the turn by under-betting. Let us give him 5:1 for his draw, over-pot river when his misses, so he calls us with A high; let us c-bet 1/3 pot, so he calls two more streets with middle pair; and let us 3bet him with 40% of our stack, so he 4bet shoves to fold-out our JJ.

i like to think of them as maxims, and not so much as rules.
maxims help point the way and act more as guidelines, and not as rote instructions...
I have strayed, I'm a heretic, but I do not repent. "Matters of degree" have become those of kind: AG is no longer and IP shall prevail.

A maxim is a maxim, a rule a rule, a guideline a guideline, an instruction an instruction, and, of course, a commandment will always be a commandment.

No longer can I live with this semantic drift.
