Re: Detroit players...any limit hold em downtown???

Limit hold 'em is all but dead in Detroit. If you want to play 3-6, you can find it, and maybe 5-10. 10-20 runs inconsistently at MCC, and breaks up too often in my experience. I haven't been...

Re: A rag or 98o?

Pzhon has set forth enough calcs to convince anyone.

For those of you who think that there is something else beyond the calcs, in a way you are wrong. Pokerstove figures out what happens if...

Re: UB freezing

I don't jerk around with the waitlists. This makes table selection harder and much longer, but I couldn't control the freezing with the wait lists. I'd log on , pick the best, and while I'm loading...

Re: Beat: Online poker rigged? (for real this time)

Yeah. If they keep referring to the inacurrate hand histories, just go with that. If they have you up 30K, then your up 30 K. Write them a senseless but impeccably polite e-mail suggesting that...

Re: Reraising Preflop with Previous Callers in NL

i would limp only if I have very aggressive players behind me who can't stand the thought of a unraised 5 way pot that he doesn't try to steal. Otherwise, its a tragedy to go to the flop unraised...

Re: Determining the probability that you\'re a winning player

I'm not a math wizard, but the "long run" is a very, very long time with respect to live play. In fact, so long, that most winning players end up moving up prior to having the type of stats an...

Re: Semi-OT: Hourly rate and rake, check my calculations?

Yeah, winrate is after rake.

If you don't beat the rake, you have a loss rate.

It is possible to be a marginal multi-tabler loser and profit a little from rakeback. But its far more difficult...

First of all, you need to realize that there are far more losers than winners. And its possible that you can't beat the game, but I doubt it. You probably have leaks.
