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.

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)
