This is where the scientific notation "delta delta" comes in handy.

Re: 2017! NC/LC THREAD! let us gogogogo

What kind of sucks about being drunk is that plays that are profitable in a vacuum become unprofitable simply because you're drunk.

Like dude who barrels his entire range on flop and turn opens HJ and bets twice on some QJ5-6 board with a range that includes hands like A7s and 44, and you xr your T9 from the BB. It might be the correct play against this guy in a vacuum because he's often folding immediately and you've still got good equity when called, but because you're drunk, he bet/calls down his A9 nonsense anyway.

I'm pretty sure I win at a higher rate when sober because I have all the drunk advertising.

I don't think online hours and live hours are equal. At least not for me. I can play 12 hours of live poker in a day with few breaks. I can play about 4-6 hours of online poker in a day and I need a break every 2 hours.

IMO online hours are more intensive because of how many more hands you're playing per hour. More hands means more decisions and more decisions means fatigue arrives sooner.

+ your average opponents are much better, so you have to think of range balancing and where you are in your range and review HH against an opponent if not playing anonymously, so it's much more mentally taxing IMO. Live FR, like 95% of your decisions just make themselves.

Not just that but 70% of your time is just sitting around waiting for the next hand to be dealt. When you play online you are basically in a hand every second.

As for the hours discussion, I play slightly less now, but my typical schedule was play from roughly 10-5 (stay if games great) come home then come back and play from 8 or 9 to roughly 2-4 in morning (leave early if games not great). Then sleep at 3 or 4 am and up at 8 everyday. I don't mind the hours but its not the easiest and understand thats not for everybody.

The main reason I don't mind (and why I started to play online poker anyways) is that I have bad insomnia and will usually just stay awake for hours regardless so may as well try and be productive in that time if I can. And everybody else is usually sleeping so all Im really sacrificing is sleep

I am clearly way too old to be leaving work and making a trip directly to Atlantic City from there.

Any Turning Stone guys on here? I see there is a 20/40, 50/100, and 100/200 holdem running there on Bravo. Is that a real thing?

Appears to be a tourney going on.

I played with a NY guy at Bellagio a few years ago and he said 50/100 went with some regularity.

There's an NVG thread now as well.
Bottom line: change your 2+2 password (you're not using that for your bank account too, are you??)

I just got a thing that said "your password is 1702 days old, please change it"

Not sure if they are forcing that upon everyone.
