So we're saying Guy Laliberte's unlimited bankroll didn't give him an edge over the online kids?

Best keep that one quiet lest we put off anyone trying to exercise a similar edge in future.

Re: *** NVG Low Content Thread: 1/3 less content than a regular NVG thread ***

Who said "Bluff often enough you get called half the time"? Could swear I read it in an old book somewhere. Thought it was Yardley but haven't found it in Education of a Poker Player.

Regardless of how true it is, I've been using it as a tool to teach people how to think about poker (i.e. if your bluffs never get called, you're not making the money you could on your value hands)

Should there be "and", "so" or "because" in the middle of that?

If there's anything, it's "that"; i.e. bluff more (or less) often until you hit the appropriate frequency, which you will recognize has happened because you're getting called half the time.

The goal isn't to get called half the time (so), the consequences aren't the focus of the sentence (and)... "Because" might work, but it's not what I remember and it feels incomplete (since the goal includes getting value on strong hands as a side-effect)

has the World Poker Tour TV series been cancelled?

I can't remember the last new episode. it looks like events are still occurring, but they are not being televised any more. I'm a little bummed because I've been watching since season 1 so I hope it will come back

High stakes Bobby's room player beats Hockey Team owner out of 18 million

High Stakes player beat owner of hockey team out of 18 million in one 16 hour session in South West Florida. Mostly in triple draw. No players staked him the owner of NHL team has become the new Beal. Bad part for the rest of the team is the NHL dude only wants to play with this one player. Good for him but, sucks for the rest. Sorry, Phil.

Did Steve Wynn and Wayne Newton Both have Face Lifts???

I saw them both on CNBCs Fast Money yesterday (maybe you can Google it).

I mean, there is something strange going on there.

Luxor Poker Room Closing

Cross Posted to LVL

Today, I heard from a dealer in the room that the room is closing. There is suppose to be an all dealer mandatory meeting tomorrow morning, May 19th, 2017 at 9:30 am.

During this meeting the dealers are to be informed about all of the specifics (when, what jobs they may transfer to - if any, what will happen with the jackpot money, etc.).

I don't think this should come as a major surprise given how lack luster the poker room as been in terms of the number of games they get.

I am surprised that they remained open as long as they did.

Poker social networking app idea

I was listening to a podcast, and the interviewee was talking about how important it is for poker players to communicate with other pros in order to improve. So I was thinking there should be an app for pro poker players to find each each other, meet up, and engage in sweat sessions.

We could call it Grinder or something.

What do you guys think?

How about calling it two plus two?
