You think you can just take Top 1 All Time and walk away?

Panda's seem nice, but you can't trust these sleezeballs. They have a lot of domestic violence going on behind closed doors.

They always have black eyes and that is for good reason. Now you know.

Nice job RunItTw1ce. Based on your profile picture you look like a funny guy, someone that chases cars but wouldn't know what to do once he caught one.

Ask the regs at your tables if they offer coaching?

imo it is possible to win most sessions if you are one of the best players in the pool

If you're not winning in a session, you just gotta keep on grinding until you're unstuck. One does not simply quit being stuck.

Read it again. Try to do some of the math in it for yourself, expand on it. Get some help if needed. You will get much more out of the programs like PIO if you fully understand the theory.

I would start to read The Mathematics of Poker. Go from there.

Ooo and we are back! Just like turtlenecks, Livestrong bracelets and and fascism in Europe.

Great to see you standing up to the fascism of J√ľncker!

Uhm... yeah? Why do you think they're taking so long to launch?

They are bound to interplanetary launch windows. They only occur once every 780 days. It seems that they missed the last window just recently, so it will take some time for the next chance. It is just like that.

Will RIO have a great launch like this?

Too bad Juan Copani you don't have the required job experience.

Thank you Phil Galfond! What job description would you deem fit for my particular set of skills, that I have acquired over a long carreer?

Are a personal assistant and a private jet included in the remuneration?

First off, this toygame is completely static since bluffs and value combos don't change over the streets that you call 'flop', 'turn' and 'river'. Also there is no card removal. It hardly describes any real poker game. Perhaps shortdeck omaha (flush beats a full house and you either are bluffing with the nutflushblocker or value betting with the nutflush) comes close - aside from the massive card removal effects in this game and the potential to lose to quads. So keep that in mind.

The math from Janda for 0.93 times pot, and your math for 1.38 is correct. (You worded it incorrectly in your first post.) If you are in this toygame you can bet (almost) your entire range on the flop and realize (almost) the entire pot in EV. You need a stack to pot ratio of over 26 on the flop to make this happen.

You should not prefer to bet any smaller than this in the toygame. But in actual poker, where the conditions are different from the toygame, you can have reasons to bet smaler.

you mean that if I have a range on Flop with 25% value combos and 75% bluff
I need to bet 138% of Pot here, as amount of bluff from river to flop will be 0.633-0.400-0.253.

What are you talking about? Please show your calculations completely.

The bluff:value ratio is relative (to the card removal effect) of the typical bluff catcher that you opponent has. The odds that you offer on a call, based on your bet size, should be equal to this bluff:value ratio.

If you define optimal bluffing frequency in an absolute way, you are no longer bound by the card removal effects. Moreso by the value betting frequency.

So the difference (if any) depends on your definition.

Being a RIO Top Member is more valuable than gold!

Why shouldn't this action ever happen?

Btw I remember you advocating calling cold 4-bets with KK versus tight ranges. This tight player could have AA, KK, QQ, AKs for sure here.
