What trends have emerged post black Friday?

I know poker strategy evolves relatively quickly. I haven't played much since black Friday. I am curious how things have changed since then.

For example over time preflop raise sizing shrank from a standard 3x open to closer to a 2x open.

It seemed like just prior to black Friday people were starting to shove 20bbs to counter resteals.

Now?

Value betting 5th pair on the board is a new thing.

limping sb and limping late positions

punting 50-100 bigs is a common thing now, thanks to bounty builders

Re: What trends have emerged post black Friday?

Regs run braindead multi-street bluffs with hands that have nearly no equity because a software tells them to do so

People have started using this ultra-modern concept called "pot odds" which means that a) no one folds anything from the big blind, b) no one folds anything to 3/4/5/6bets

Every tournament is a bounty builder meaning that no one folds anything to anything and ATo is a standard 200BB valueshove hand

No one has any idea whether a play is good or bad anymore because everything is fine "at some frequency". If you want to justify a terrible punt to your friends/backers, just use as many as possible of the following words: "gto", "frequency", "blocker", "pio" "backdoor flush draw" and you can get away with anything

Pokerstars new VIP program is so bad that your rakeback percentage may or may not be a negative number depending on what kind of chest you get from their virtual slot machine

I play live so the young hyper agro fish or the older man novice that spew off every hand and play like this in cash or tournaments put bread on the table.
