Ya after rereading it my response sounds harsher than it was meant to be. I was just saying that if they implemented anything that would make the regs have to play less (like letting people only win 1 seat) that the volume of step 5s and 6s would halt to almost nothing.

As for how to increase traffic while having less regs in each one, I think this is pretty much impossible. If anything, increasing the number of step 6s going (if this were possible to do) would increase the number of regs playing them, up to a point where they were no longer profitable for the regs. It's kind of the same thing that happened in high stakes sngs There are so many regs that they are barely profitable for anyone anymore unless you heavily multitable them.

Re: The Well: Jorj95 (George Lind III)

Hey Jorj just noticed your well now.

Few questions (not sure somebody asked them already):
In the first part of 2008 you were playing a super standard/conventional SNG strategy and you were pretty much flat, I recall having notes on you and I made some unconventional moves because I was sure you were folding a lot given the massive multitabling, then you changed strategy.

Did you notice that some regs were taking advantage or you made some changes in your game?

Some players believe that 114s are the toughest games in the high stakes scenario because many reach that level therefore is plenty of good regs, some of them get burned due to variance and they will never step up while whoever goes up tend to play all the other high stakes games profiting from all the random fish.

What do you think?

Thanks!

Re: The Well: Jorj95 (George Lind III)

Do you think an exchange/juice free sports betting site would work where the customers just bet among themselves? From a programming perspective how difficult would it be to set up. Could it be profitable if the site automatically took the opposite side against customers with a winning percentage under 45% after a decent sample size say 100 wagers?

Thanks for an excellent well. You're an inspiration to all sng grinders

At the beginning of last year I was trying to play more tables. I think I was averaging about 22-24. It's hard to worry about small pots when you have that many going. My results definitely suffered though. After a few months I went down to averaging maybe 18-20 and while that still seems like a lot it really does affect how much time you have to play hands quite a bit. I don't really want to discuss my strategy all that much for obvious reasons though. And yeah I noticed a few regs were taking advantage so I adjusted a bit.

I don't know that 114s are the toughest but they're definitely not easy. The difference between the 114s though and the higher games is the level of aggression in the late game. The 300s and 500s are just way more aggressive in that people just don't miss spots to shove, while in the 114s I still see missed shoves by some otherwise good regs.

The bigger games are definitely not full of random fish though. Each game at the 500 or higher level might have a couple really bad players but the rest of the field will usually be top notch players. However the bad players in the 500s and 1ks can sometimes be worse than the bad players in the 114s.

There are already sportsbooks that do this, they just take like a 2% commission from the winner. Examples are matchbook and mansion and betfair. They are decent ideas but sometimes it's hard to get the volume you want with them. They are probably really good for smaller bettors though.

Being able to pick 45% winners sustainably is a lot more difficult than it sounds, because by definition it means that you would be able to pick 55% winners and crush the sportsbook just by picking the opposite side. And there are very very few people who can pick 55% winners over any decent sample size.

I would make it more obvious how the program compares to rakeback at other sites, i.e., what % rakeback a supernova should expect. I would add more incentive beyond the 1 million vpp mark as I think there are quite a few people besides me who would go for 2 or 3 million if the incentive was higher than it is now. Currently I make more $ for the first million than I do for the 2nd or 3rd million, which is just silly.

As for changes to the lower tiers there are probably some worth making but it's hard for me to comment on that as it really doesn't affect me.

Overall though it's a great program and I can't really complain much because I wouldn't be doing what I do without it.

I don't know, just start with a lower number of tables and then when you get comfortable with that amount, add 1 or 2 more. Just keep repeating that. For other tips look elsewhere in this thread as I've talked about it a little before.

Amazingly enough I never really get bored of it. I would have thought I would have by now. I got a little tired of it the last 2 weeks because I had to get 210k vpp in 2 weeks and that was a little monotonous, but normally I'm taking 2 or 3 days off a week so it's not really that bad.
