[x] Online Poker is Dead

I just witnessed a friend of mine 8 tabling 1/2 on stars using a new HUD. It uses your PT stats to create an accurate range for your opponent. It gives you a text output line that you can copy paste into pokerstove.

What this means is that any monkey could play "text book" poker if he is able to learn preflop strat and copy paste.

He said he got the program from a friend of his at school OVER THE SUMMER.

I will not give you his screenname, or the name of the program, but I have searched online and I cannot find it (which is good). As far as I know it is a one of a kind program.

I will never play a hand of poker online ever again.

Re: [x] Online Poker is Dead

This program could easily exist, but it's not necessarily an accurate hand range. This program has to assume one specific range for all opponents.

I.E. If someone only ever opens one hand, this program will be pretty sure it's aces. If someone opens the percentage equivalent of 2 hands, it's a good guess that it's AA and KK, although it might be AK. Alternatively, it might be a player who only waits for AA but plays a suited connector once in awhile out of boredom.

I assume a homebrew program is not sophisticated enough to take into account all past showdowns and weight the range accordingly. It might make use of the data, but that data itself does not accurately reflect opening ranges, because strong hands get shown down more often than weak ones. This is just one troublesome problem with assuming a range.

Basically, people will be getting the same thing a HUD offers. If they open 11%, plug that 11% into a program that'll display the top 11% of hands. The only possible difference is that this program will use showdown data, but again, will it treat that 86o open from the CO as a freak or assume that 86o is always a part of their range? Will the program assume they open trash hands like that 13% of the time they get dealt them?

I don't think it really changes anything.

Re: [x] Online Poker is Dead

I have had the ability to do this relatively accurately for about 2 years. This isn't the only reason I win.

Its how you react to these ranges. Welcome to real poker...

i.e Maths

I hope you are right, and I brought up alot of the same points, but how hard would it be for the programmer to weight hands that go to showdown 10x more then hands that don't?

I also brought up the fact that player's game's change over time, but how hard would it be to weight newer hands more than older hands?

The ranges it was giving where very long and exact. It wasn't simply stuff like AJ+, 88+. They seemed very specific, so they must be looking at showdown hands not just opening percentages.

Re: [x] Online Poker is Dead

bring it on... if someone thinks they can beat me using a computer program, i welcome them to try.

beating a program could be pretty easy if you know how the program calculates the correct move.

Re: [x] Online Poker is Dead

What I hope will eventually happen is that sites will allow you to change your name often enough that these tracking programs cant keep a data base on you. These programs need a pretty good sample size to accurately pin you down. It's like Phil Laak wearing his disguise to a poker tournament.
