Re: 1 vs multiple BJ hands

Saborion,
Playing 5 hands of $1 is not the same as playing $1 five times because of covariance. When you play five spots at once, you are more likely to have all five hands have the same result - in...

Re: Looking for Heads-up Online?!? Paradise is dead?

Cup,
I would first like to say that I appreciate your contributions to this forum. Having said that, I would like to add that I quickly lose respect for posters who trash sites where they have...

Re: I didn\'t drown yet

Homer,
This is a very good comparison you have presented. It does however depend on the player being disciplined enough to follow basic strategy and bet the minimum every hand. As you point out, a...

Re: Check-raising HU as a bluff

These are all legitimate plays if not overdone, although I would generally like to have some possible out instead of complete garbage. For example, the flop comes AK6 and I have 78 and am 3-suited....

Re: heads-up flush draw

Hi serling,
Of course you could have played it that way, but if I am him I am not folding 89 there. Additionally, since he could be on a flush draw I would consider calling at the river even if he...

Re: heads-up flush draw

I am just calling here. The fact that he check-raised the flop instead of waiting gives me hope that he is either on a draw or has a hand like 89 and not aces. I would call him down at the river most...

Re: Limping HU

Hi Stone,
I don't think we have any substantial disagreement on this, especially when the BB is the button. I don't like the structure of those games however and I suspect that sites offering that...

Re: Limping HU

Hi Stoneage,
Perhaps I misunderstood your premise. If a player ALWAYS calls a raise, meaning he plays every hand no matter what his holdings, then of course you should limp with some frequency. I...

Re: Limping HU

Apparently you play very well after the flop, since you must more than make up for the 15 or 20 big blinds per hour you are not stealing.

Re: Limping HU

I think it is questionable strategy to give your opponent a free card that can beat you on a hand they otherwise might have folded. Not to mention that on average you are creating a smaller pot on a...

Re: BEST STEAK IN VEGAS

Hugo's Cellar has great atmosphere but the food has gone downhill. I have eaten at Morton's many times but their steak is not the best. They do allow you to bring your own wine, though I wouldn't...

Re: Pokertropolis, a little investigative reporting

Hi jek,
I switched from WSEX to Pokertropolis when the software was crashing at WSEX. I already had a sports account there. A lot of other players switched at the same time, including most of the...

Re: 3 handed vs heads up - shouldn\'t it be about the same ?

Also, in 3-handed you have twice the number of opponents as you do in 2-handed. 2-handed is a game of pressure, as you saw.

Re: This cold streak

If you play long enough things like this are going to happen to you statistically. You hope that they happen later rather than sooner. A man I consider to be the best limit stud player in the world...

Re: Fascinating RGP Post

Re: game theory, 70% game

I wasn't using the term "idiot" disparagingly, Lisa. When I was brought up it was a scientifically accepted term for people with an IQ below 25, which seemed like a good arbitrary cutoff point for a...

Re: game theory, 70% game

This sounds like a great problem and I am sure someone will have a Bayesian Nash Equilibrium solution or a von Neumann epiphany or something that solves it. Since that is beyond my capabilities, I...

Re: What happens when casino catches you counting cards? (Blackjack)

Moyer,
The answer to this varies greatly depending on a host of factors, including the casino, the shift manager, and you. There are casinos like the Barbary Coast that will kick people out at the...

Re: Yo Yo effect..

One thing that no one has mentioned about bankroll requirements is that they are somewhat relative to the stakes you are playing in a way that should be obvious. Let's say that your skill in a game...

Re: does depositing $9900 to my check account seem fishy to the bank+gov?

The reports are called CTR (cash transaction reports) and they go to the criminal investigation division of the IRS. Sounds ominous, but as I said there are millions of these filed every year. It...

Re: does depositing $9900 to my check account seem fishy to the bank+gov?

Reporting requirements are for cash, or cash "instruments" like traveller's checks or cashiers checks. Depositing a personal check does not trigger a report, regardless of amount. Cashing a check for...
