Re: Beating the Heads up Limit Poker Machine
^ I've suggested this in other threads. The idea that there is more than one personality installed on the machines is pretty widely accepted and I think DS said he'd been able to confirm this at one point. It's typically thought that the machine switches randomly between the personalities, but who's to say if a weaker personality isn't allowed to play more frequently at the lower stakes? And I'm not necessarily suggesting that such a personality would be -EV against the majority of the population. For example, if it figured to have a thin edge (say +1 or 2 ptbb/100), it would allow people to have decent rungood stretches, meanwhile setting them up to play worse against the machine's better personalities and perhaps enticing them to play higher.
I wonder if TT is still playing these things. I take the absence of follow-up reports from other 2p2 regs who have said they were going to give it a shot to mean that they didn't fair too well.
