    With your suggested flop betting ranges in the example hands, we've usually got between about a 1-to-1 ratio to a 2-to-1 ratio in favor of value combos vs bluff combos. Are we going to end up running out of bluff combos by the time the river comes, giving our opponent a chance to exploitively fold 100% to our river barrels?

    No. Because our flop betting strategy is inherently strong, we can continue to barrel on many turns and rivers on a lot of different runouts on different boards. I do end up on the river with a robust bluffing range on a lot of configurations. And in live poker, it is acceptable and/or desirable to have more value combos than what optimal strategy might want. This is to exploit their leak of calling too much. We will still have a bluffing range, but our bluffing range will be narrower than what an optimal strategy might suggest.
