Bet-sizing with a completely polarized range.

      "If we have a betting that is copletely polarized we should bet an equal fraction of the pot on all three streets in order to get all-in by the river". Why is that the most optimal strategy?

      It might not be. I'd ignore it if it isn't backed up better.

      One important aspect of 3-barreling (while bluffing) is to always leave enough for a credible river bet. Another (slightly opposing) principle is, while leaving enough for a credible river bet, the turn bet should be as big as possible.

      It is mostly about maximizing the expectation value, balancing is secondary unless you play the same crowd day in and day out.
