I originally asked this question on Math StackExchange a few months ago and no answers or even comments have yet been posted, so I'm asking this question again here on Math OverFlow.

This Math StackExchange question and this Math Overflow question indicate the evaluation of the Dirchleta eta function

$$\eta(s)=\underset{K\to\infty}{\text{lim}}\left(\sum_{n=1}^K \frac{(-1)^{\,n-1}}{n^s}\right),\quad\Re(s)>0\label{1}\tag{1}$$

as $s\to 0^+$ is related to the evaluation of Maclaurin series such as

$$\frac{x}{x+1}=\underset{K\to\infty}{\text{lim}}\left(\sum\limits_{n=1}^K (-1)^{\,n-1}\, x^n\right),\quad |x|<1\label{2}\tag{2}$$

as $x\to 1^-$.

Now consider the following two globally convergent formulas for the Dirichlet eta function $\eta(s)$ which I believe are exactly equivalent for all integer values of $K$ where $_2F_1(a,b;c;z)$ is a hypergeometric function and $P_n^{(\alpha,\beta)}(x)$ is the Jacobi Polynomial.

$$\eta(s)=\underset{K\to\infty}{\text{lim}}\left(\sum\limits_{n=1}^K \frac{1}{2^n} \sum\limits_{k=1}^n \frac{(-1)^{k-1} \binom{n-1}{k-1}}{k^s}\right),\quad s\in\mathbb{C}\label{3}\tag{3}$$

$$\eta(s)=\underset{K\to\infty}{\text{lim}}\left(\frac{1}{2^K} \sum\limits_{n=1}^K \frac{(-1)^{n-1}}{n^s} \sum\limits_{k=0}^{K-n} \binom{K}{K-n-k}\right)$$ $$=\underset{K\to\infty}{\text{lim}}\left(\frac{1}{2^K} \sum\limits_{n=1}^K \frac{(-1)^{n-1}}{n^s}\, \binom{K}{K-n} \, _2F_1(1,n-K;n+1;-1)\right)$$ $$=\underset{K\to\infty}{\text{lim}}\left(\frac{1}{2^K} \sum\limits_{n=1}^K \frac{(-1)^{n-1}}{n^s}\, P_{K-n}^{(n,-K)}(3)\right),\quad s\in\mathbb{C}\label{4}\tag{4}$$

The conjectured formulas \eqref{5} and \eqref{6} below for $\frac{x}{x+1}$ are derived from formulas \eqref{3} and \eqref{4} above for $\eta(s)$ by the mappings $\frac{1}{k^s}\to x^k$ and $\frac{1}{n^s}\to x^n$.

$$\frac{x}{x+1}=\underset{K\to\infty}{\text{lim}}\left(\sum\limits_{n=1}^K \frac{1}{2^n} \sum\limits_{k=1}^n (-1)^{k-1} \binom{n-1}{k-1}\, x^k\right),\quad\Re(x)>-1\label{5}\tag{5}$$

$$\frac{x}{x+1}=\underset{K\to\infty}{\text{lim}}\left(\frac{1}{2^K} \sum\limits_{n=1}^K (-1)^{n-1}\, x^n \sum\limits_{k=0}^{K-n} \binom{K}{K-n-k}\right)$$ $$=\underset{K\to\infty}{\text{lim}}\left(\frac{1}{2^K} \sum\limits_{n=1}^K (-1)^{n-1} \binom{K}{K-n} \, _2F_1(1,n-K;n+1;-1)\, x^n\right)$$ $$=\underset{K\to\infty}{\text{lim}}\left(\frac{1}{2^K}\sum\limits_{n=1}^K (-1)^{n-1}\, P_{K-n}^{(n,-K)}(3)\, x^n\right),\quad\Re(x)>-1\label{6}\tag{6}$$

Question: Is it true that formulas \eqref{5} and \eqref{6} for $\frac{x}{x+1}$ above converge for $\Re(x)>-1$? If not, what is the convergence of formulas \eqref{5} and \eqref{6} above?
