Re: LMAO

Hi Des,

For the record, there is now considerable evidence growing against the Afrocentric origin of [censored] Sapiens. Specifically, there is growing evidence that [censored] Sapiens may have...

Re: A World Class Player, indeed!

Sponger,

There's a difference between "I disagree with X" and "X is an idiot." Whether you agree or disagree with his politics, Michael Moore is a very intelligent man, and a gifted documentary...

Re: Must moral law be divinely inspired?

Hi J.Polin,

The problem with Christian Reconstructionism/Dominionism is that it seeks a return to a pre-Enlightenment mindset where knowledge had to be vetted by ecclesiastical authority. One...

Re: Shutting up the Table Coach

Hi Blarg,

Yeah, yeah, eyewitness testimony is not reliable, and therefore the theory wonks know more about what people experience than the people who experience it. Sorry, but I've heard that old...

Hi SossMan,

This is a classic application of the Fundamental Attribution Error:

* If I lose, I got screwed.
* If you win, you either got lucky or cheated.

A Caveat

Hi all,

While we're discussing the utility of the 2%/4% rule, etc., it's worth noting that, however accurate your method for converting outs to odds, it won't matter unless you're consistently...

Hi umdpoker,

I would be astonished beyond words if any would-be murderer in history has ever engaged in this kind of reasoning. It may be comparatively more likely in economic crimes, where you...

Re: The Failure Of Logic

Hi winker,

If you'd read the remainder of the thread, you'd have found that this experiment is fallacious for exactly that reason. In any capital case, there is a "guilt phase" in which the jury...

Re: Semi-Bluffing; Limit vs. NL poker

Hi Tom,

I really disagree about semi-bluffing draws with position. Sklansky advocates against it in The Theory of Poker, and I think for good reason, especially in NL where you don't have to...

Fred,

Yes, as a matter of fact, I do speak German. As for the fallacious statement that this misinterpretation dates to a Newsweek article from 1988, that is simply absurd. My best friend is...

Re: Semi-Bluffing; Limit vs. NL poker

Hi ossie,

In deep stack NL ring play, semi-bluffing in position on the flop is often (though not always) a mistake. It's usually better to take the free card, provided you also occasionally give...

Re: I\'ve been looking for a good book on game theory

Hi ben,

You may find out that game theory isn't really what you're looking for, because game theory really doesn't have a lot to do with games. It has to do with multiple-decision-maker matrices...

Re: Making outs to odds conversion

Hi Louie,

[ QUOTE ]
One of us misunderstood. Are you saying that if you have "6 outs" you'll figure that's 12%, and 100-12=88, and 88:12 is "7+:1"? And that's "faster" than "6 outs", 42 bads,...
