Why the hell would you want to reduce the amount of luck?

Good players would like to eliminate luck so they dont get outdrawn by players like fraac, who suck at poker... anyways...

Ive been thinking about this game idea for a while and the OP beat me to a post. Im still thinking about it, but Im not sure this game would work in certain multiway pots. Ill get back with you later on that...

Another thing is that it would affect home games. People would have to buy something that would calculate the odds. This would not only slow down the game, but also might stir up controversy with the typical moron. Even an intelligent person might believe the percentages are wrong or that he is being cheated...

Its a good idea. Are you sure you are not related to me, OP, as my brother and I were talking about this idea the night before you posted this. He came up with it after hearing all my horrendous outdraw beats at Full Tilt. I still swear this site is rigged but thats a whole new topic...

Well why don't we all just play chess then? Is it because we're inveterate losers who would never put in the hours?

Costliest thing in poker isn't luck, my dears. It's delusions. ZOMG I LOVE YOU GUYS.

Back in the day, the act of getting or offering insurance was very widespread. Our very own Dr. Sklansky, was often called on to do the math.

Play these hands with an ordered preference. Tighten up at the beginning. Loosen up as the blinds increase. Loosen up if your stack is much bigger than his.

AA, KK, QQ, JJ, TT, 99, 88, AKs, 77, AQs, AKo, AJs, AQo, ATs, 66, KQs, AJo, ATo, A9s, KJs, A8s, KTs, KQo, 55, A9o, KJo, A7s, QJs, K9s, KTo, A8o, A6s, QTs, A5s, A4s, A7o, QJo

Bad players would lose almost every single session and get bored of the game very quickly.

They need suckouts that win them the whole pot so they can have the rare winning session, that keeps em coming back.
