You want EV =...

Re: Crossword Puzzle

It depends how much work you're willing to do to improve your chances. Your answer is right if you randomly guess at every letter.

For a start, you can guess letters in proportion to their normal...

Re: What do you think about this class??

It all depends what you see yourself doing, and what you enjoy. It doesn't sound too likely to be poker-related unless you are planning to write your own PokerTracker or have a bunch of things you...

Re: D.Sklansky: Why is an embryo a person?

Suppose we accept the premise that "abortion is murder because an embryo is a person." Does that automatically mean abortion is wrong?

No. It means abortion is something to be taken very...

Re: Four Kinds of Atheists.

I think some of the Type 3s are very similar to the Type 4s - differing only in having spotted the pattern of the 'shrinking realm of the supernatural' sooner. It almost sounds to me like atheist...

Re: Odd rule at Resorts East Chicago

Regardless whether it's normal to keep the kill button if killer winds up splitting the pot at the end... it's sure not normal for there to be a kill at all on the next hand if the hand is checked...

Re: UBs TV BS...

I thought it was quite a clever idea for a promo, as a way to inspire casual players to get more serious about the site.

In sharp contrast to the OP, I also thought it was a promotion aimed...

Re: Infinite multiplication

If there is some fixed k<1, such that every term in your sequence is less than k, that is sufficient to show convergence to 0. The n_th partial product will be less than k^n and the power series with...

Re: Is raising pre-flop with JJ at micro-limits +EV?

Yes, raising JJ is very +EV, at any limit in any position. In most games where money is flowing freely it's even a reraising hand.

You gave the reason yourself: an A, K, or Q comes 59% of the...

Re: J9s - Open Limp, Cold Call, Donk - Every street needs comments

I will limp with this as long as I have a fair shot at not getting raised. I would be happier if I had limpers ahead of me. Preflop isn't the end of the world though.

I am happily letting this go...

Re: Specific preflop plays

If there was some chance of getting the blinds out I would raise AT. If there isn't... MAYBE I'd still raise with 2 limpers.

I am not playing KT at all in this situation.

Re: 2-card Poker: Favorite Hands

I am assuming suited hands are not worth anything extra in this game.

By my count, J8 loses to 600 hands, ties 9, and beats 616, while J7 loses to 612, ties 9, and beats 604.

Exact answers to...

Re: Poisson and Approximating Binomial

Yes, the Poisson distribution can be used to make such approximations. The rarer the event the better the approximation.

As for the actual odds...6:1 is about...
