Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

I've finished / grown bored with my preflop raising stats collecting at my 1/3 NL table.

Collected ten 1 hour samples thru July / August. Avoided taking samples at maniac tables so results wouldn't be skewed, and mostly tried to take samples at tables which I eyeballed as being average/typical.

Raising percentages (i.e. percentage of hands that were raised+ preflop, with straddles not being considered raises):

74%, 71%, 70%, 68%, 65%, 58%, 57%, 53%, 47%, 40%

Overall, 184/304 hands were raised+ preflop = 61%, or almost 2/3 of hands.

Even though lol sample size, these samples do sorta suggest my tables now are lot more aggressive than my tables of the past (although admittedly I have no samples from past games), and suggest my new-and-improved "tight is right, tighter is righter" approach to the game is an ok approach.

slim that graph can't be serious.

TV life became more enjoyable when I decided to quit shows when they started to suck

I learned my lesson after prison break - I didn't quit until the 3rd to last episode. I should've quit after a few episodes into season 2

Yeah I follow that philosophy as well, but it's just such a ****ty spot because I'm in love with the books. I feel like I might as well get spoiled by the tv show than have it spoiled by youtube or overhearing someone talking.

If it were possible to just turn off all GoT talk until I read the books I'd totally do it, but it's not going to happen so now it's just a matter of what the best way to get spoiled is: some ****ty show or random social media/people.

The graph makes no sense. It has 3 industries listed and then one coin, it's a faulty comparison. If it's going to list 3 industries then the entire crypto industry should be the data point given, not just the one that has done the best.

It's like if this compared Technology, homebuilders, biotech and google


Sure it's not a scientific comparison but it still illustrates how much it has risen relative to other buble classes. My hunch is that crypto as an asset class would have a similar chartbut I honestly don't know.

But yeah using one item as a proxy for an entire asset class is always going to be problematic.

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

Right now back in NJ/NYC, first one out of our close group of high school friends getting married early October in Florida so very much looking forward to that.

Planning on heading back to China eventually not 100% sure when, maybe during the winter to eat hot pot

Saw the Game of thrones episode last night, I really enjoyed it but I didn't read the books so maybe I'm missing something lol

I think it will take one large publicly known hack for this to shake the foundation of bitcoin. I mentioned itt a few weeks ago that there are already somewhat sophisticated attacks, and they're only getting better.

Yup I think so. I'll make sure to send you a msg on WeChat ahead of time when I know for sure hopefully stars align and we can meet up. We both know China always gets crazy lol

Good friend of mine relocated from Beijing to Hunan, Chang Sha, not sure if you've ever been? He said night life is just as awesome but cost of living way cheaper in Chang Sha, facetimed me and showed me his apartment, hes paying 5k RMB a month for what would cost like 20k RMB in Beijing. Two floors, two baths, couple bedrooms the real deal

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

ethereum had a 30+ million hack and it recovered.


I went to changsha before, not sure how much I liked it. Nightlife was indeed good, but the pollution was awful, although probably an improvement from Beijing. Seems like everyone my age went to a different province, everyone there was a toddler or retired.

I love Hunan food and people are friendly though, I was just there for a weekend so not too sure how well that represents things.

Its not the band-aid holding it together, its the last jenga piece in a game that should have collapsed years ago.

It's crash will most certainly be used as the systemic "lehman brothers" scape-goat that plows its way through the rest of the market, even though it shouldnt have that impact in theory.

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

Fwiw I think crypto is a long way from actually posing any form of threat to the larger economy from a price collapse.

Market cap is like 160 billion. Total US homes are valued at like 25 trillion.

I don't know at what point the price volatility of crypto starts affecting the greater economy but at its current growth rate, it could be sooner than I expect.

"The call play"

Quote:
When you play any poket-pair the idea has got to be in your mind not to see the flop and fold if you miss but to see all 5 cards. You bet or raise when you make it or else see more cards without more money. This is part of the key that unlocks the money bags. See all 5 cards as a free roll. You must acquire this skill else half the key is missing.
Quote:
Well, we play our pocket pairs, all of them from 22 all the way up to AA, in such a way as to see all 5 cards (the entire board all the way to the river). All this for only the "call play" on the flop. If villain bets or whatever, we make the "call play", after that we'll see the turn and river cards for the price of that flop play. That flop action is not a shove. I want to make it clear. We don't shove and see all the cards. No, we just make the "call play" OTF. This is the key, ...., you know, ..., and after that ......., Man, the poor sucker is really in for a surprise. Actually in the video you can see villain's face at river. Yeh, that's his face.
Quote:
I know because the play is so con hidden that no villain will ever suspect a trap.

Let's say I have position. I'm OTB and you are in MP. We have deep stacks. I have 66 and missed the Set on the flop. Now, I would like to see the turn and river to increase my chances. OK, here is the flop: K, 9, 2 and you have AK. You bet at this flop and I make the "call play" and let's say we have two more villains in the hand. OK? -They call or fold.., I don't care.

At the turn you will let me see the river card for free 100% So from the flop to the river I have a free roll. After I "call" your flop bet I have a free roll to draw for a Set all the way to the river. You'll not realize but the key is the con details of my flop "play". Man, the poor villain is gonna be really in for a surprise of his life when I make my Set OTT or OTR. So, instead like everybody else trying to flop a Set, I'm working to flop, turn or river my Sets. Big, big, huge difference. .., you know....

Alot of jokes have been made before about contenders for the "manipulating the board" strat, but honestly nothing has ever come close.

Today we have found a real contender.
