Re: 2018 NC/LC THREAD - name TBD

My plan would be to stay at Bike and commute to Commerce anyway.

Commerce poker rate they gave me is $259 instead of $270. LoL

Bike $159 'poker rate' is only available for reward member card holders.. which you can only make in person.

Is there are reason you guys wouldn't use airBnB? I've seen rooms as low as $40/night that are pretty close to Commerce.

Re: 2018 NC/LC THREAD - name TBD

Not sure how far apart they are, but if looking to play mix or something at Commerce, why not just stay at an airbnb or hotel/motel that is closer to Commerce than the bike, if you aren't planning on really playing at the bike?

I'm curious what 40/night gets you on airbnb. My only time using them, they were as much as a hotel.

Re: 2018 NC/LC THREAD - name TBD

If you're talking to me, I haven't mentioned the Bike.

All I really want out of an AirBnB is a bed and a shower. I didn't dig deep into the options but I'll probably be booking something in the next few days.

My cousin is hosting me for free during my first trip but can't for my second one.

Re: 2018 NC/LC THREAD - name TBD

I'm thinking about coding an application that I would call "SSHE Preflop Simulator".

The application would allow for the creation of player types and associated limping and raising ranges. For example, you could create a TAG who would never open limp and whose open raising or RWPL ranges vary by position. You could create an LP who would limp or limp along the same range regardless of position and only raise JJ+/AQso+, and only 3-bet or 4-bet AA/KK.

The player could then configure if the table were 9-handed or 6-handed and put different player types in each seat. The AI players would follow their script and then the player would be shown his hole cards. The application would provide a "hint button" that when clicked would calculate hero's equity vs. the ranges defined for the villains.

If the player is not sure what the correct PF decision is in the spot given the reads, the application would include a "Post to 2+2" button that would format the player types, positions and actions in a way that could be pasted into the Pre-Flop Checkup thread.

The challenge is to make it flexible enough to be useful, but not so complicated that it would take a small army to write the code.

The first version of the application would stop at preflop, but in theory it shouldn't be difficult to create player-type-based AI to play out the hands.

It would be a good "training opportunity" for those of us like me who only play LHE live and can't find online LHE games to practice on to save their lives.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Don't get how playing online would be a substitute for a useful simulation tool. I have no idea if it could be done, but it sounds awesome.

I just got one done in less than 5 min. Like I filled out the form and then picked up a magazine and didn't even get to the table of contents before the guy came in and told me he was done.

Have I just been ripped off for most of my adult life? Is this car dependent and my newish Prius simply has fewer hoops to jump through than the mid-1990s POS (Piece of Saturn) that I used to drive?

Same experience my last one took 8 minutes and my car definitely has an exhaust leak and i was expecting to fail.

Re: 2018 NC/LC THREAD - name TBD

8/16 game: A loose-passive I know well raises under the gun, next player three bets, small blind calls, I call with 77, UTG caps.

Flop is A72 with two spades. Checks to UTG1, he bets, SB calls, I raise, UTG 3-bets, UTG1 folds, SB and I call.

Turn A. It checks around.

River K. It checks around.

UTG tables AA and I feel like it's not even fair that I'm allowed to play with these people sometimes.

He was protecting his HHJP equity because he thought if everyone folded they wouldn't pay out?

I think anyone with the programming capabilities of putting together such a simulator would be better served calculating Nash Equilibria for common situations.

You can certainly create such a simulator for multiway small stakes games but honestly when people are aggregate VPIPing 80 and you're in the upper half of position, it's pretty hard to make huge mistakes. Certainly, starting with ranges afforded by any book puts you pretty close to optimal.

On the other hand, figuring out when c/c-c/r is better than c/r-b is not trivial and there isn't a huge amount of literature on it.

Yes. I guess he's being nice? It's not even a PSJ - it's a High Hand. That is pretty likely to win $250, but is not unbeatable.

I was really debating if I could fold this hand if he bet the turn. I guess you can never really be 100% sure in a spot like this but I'm pretty sure he doesn't cap QQ here pre and I'm positive he doesn't cap AK. He's not a nit by any means but he's not even remotely aggressive.

Agreed, ACR has LHE next to never and on Ignition even at .02/.05 you'll find 4- to 6-handed tables when you're LUCKY and 2 or 3 flops an hour will be contested 3-handed or more. It is NOT helpful for preparing for a trip to a live SSLHE table.

I like that idea.

I'm kidding myself if I think I have the level of spare time that would be necessary to code such an app but a guy can dream, right?
