Re: Am i way off here (-ev?)

You need to get a better handle on how to calculate EV. There's no such thing as a "lock" and like someone else said, if one bet were a lock, why not just bet it and not bother with the parlay? The...

Re: No love for horseracing?

Stanford Wong provided a pretty sobering analysis of horse racing with the 20% track take in "Betting Cheap Claimers"; he analyzed how much better you had to be than the average horse player out...

Edumacate me!

I really have a hard time understanding the appeal of this game.

It seems like whenever you hit a piece of the flop, you have an ungodly number of outs, but odds are, so does somebody else...or...

Re: Farha on Omaha - Anybody read it yet?

I flipped through it at my local Barnes & Noble.

I don't know anything about Omaha except that it's an evil game invented by witches.

I read the bit about him intentionally folding a +EV hand...

Re: SSI and Razz

The Razz section wasn't written by Joey Hawthorne.

Re: team poker

There might be a way to do this with player's playing partnerships (like Bridge and Spades).

How about this - each player is dealt two cards as in Hold 'Em. Each partnership bets out of a joint...

Re: World Series Experiment

Strat-o-matic?!?!

LOL.

Re: Is this a decent workout routine?

This is my couch potato work-out. I sometimes do this when playing on-line poker, watching TV, reading, etc.

Whenever I have to get up to get a glass of water, go to the bathroom, etc. I drop and...

Re: Big swings in BJ?

If you're not counting cards, your best option is to walk away. If you HAVE to gamble (although I have no idea why you'd have to), bet everything you have on one hand and then walk away as it gives...

Re: Bored now. Invent a novel poker variant.

Okay - draw poker for high, two blinds.

One betting round.
Draw cards.
Second betting round.
Show-down and the best hand wins HALF the pot.
Players keep their hands and then draw cards again....

Re: Bored now. Invent a novel poker variant.

I call this variant "Flip Flop Hold 'Em".

It plays like Hold 'Em EXCEPT.

You deal out two flops.

After the post-flop betting round, you flip a coin to see which flop is "good" and which is...

Re: Bored now. Invent a novel poker variant.

I think any decent poker variant has to have a skill element BUT a large enough volatility that the fish return.

Here is my variant.

It's draw poker for high. One draw. Two blinds. Four...

Re: Stud Hi (A startling finding)

The way you played this hand makes me scratch my head. Just why did you call on 3rd? And how could you justify the call on 4th? And the call on 5th? With a pair of 10's with one other 10 in...

Re: Razz question

The player was drunk, on tilt, playing HORSE and forgot which game was being played or was vert short-stacked in a tournament and had really good hole-cards.

Re: Some thoughts on SS1

He's assuming that he can get heads-up against the player with the J up-card AND that the player who raised with it only has a pair of J's only part of the time when he raises with a J up-card. He...

Re: UB Software Provider Out - The Merry-go-round continues

I fail to see anything unethical in what UB has done.

Re: Poker rooms in the US with 1-5 Stud?

Thanks for the information, guys. I really enjoyed 1-5 Stud when I played it in AC and only recently started playing face-to-face again. I might have to check out the Horsehoe at Tunica.
