View Full Version : How important is probability?

Well, how important is probability to becoming an expert player? There's no question that a few people who appear to be good players can barely add and subtract. But I believe a reasonably good understanding of the underlying probability concepts that govern play is very helpful.

All comments are welcome.

without understanding probability you cannot possibly be a long term winner.

That is a probably a highly improbable statement.

Is that like saying you can't be rational unless you understand Logic?

You certainly wouldn't know when you BECAME a long term winner.

Rationally I would say that is logically probable or is it probably logical or is it rationally probable or.....................lol
