Not sure about how fast. I can do a deck in less than 10 minutes. I also just memorized all of the 169 opening possible hands, naming them all, e.g., 6,5 is Retiree, 8,4 is Big Brother, 9,5 is Dolly Parton, J,10, Justin Timberlake. I did that while driving, a 3 hour drive, probably took an hour. Keep in mind, I was alone and was driving. Last night, went online to do VPIP on two players, pretty amazing. One player played 11 of 27 hands, the other 5 of 27, and as it would happen, they played one head to head in an all in showdown, getting all in on the flop, with post flop bettor putting in $75 in $1,2 game. Who do you think had better starting hand? They both had a Queen, as did the board. It ended in tie, as board had a pair of 6's(2nd one a river card) and a King, so they each had Q's, 6's and a King. but tighter player had QJs and looser player had Q4s, really a ridiculous call on flop(and a ridiculous starting hand), as 6's weren't made til river. It was amazing to see. In another hand, tighter player showed winning hand of K9s, which is 22nd ranked hand of 169(I think, need to check this, getting varying info), in top 14%. As he played 5/27, that's 18%, so this hand was inside his range. Good stuff, IMO. I'm very excited, mostly because it will force me to focus. I do think it will be difficult to play mutlitable online, but I'll be able to go up in stakes. Higher stakes, more focus. Not bad. And live in strange game, like a casino, this will be killer. People don't give up seats so easily at Foxwoods, where I sometimes go, so you'll be able to get lots of data over a couple hours, even 1 hour. That 11/27 player is playing 40% of hands, bound to be a losing strategy over time, and just the kind of player we all went to go against.
