I lost 4 buyins so far but I'm hoping I can make this shot stick and can play 500 as my main game going forward because the ~9bb/100 in rake at 200nl is kind of absurd.
maybe variance or maybe you're playing a little loose. I pay under 7bb/100 at 200nl/200z

Yeah looks like only paying about 7.85bb/100 in rake. still is pretty high imo and will be good to get away from that sort of extortion at 500

Re: 2019 - BALLZ TO THE WALL

Is the number of condoms used still smaller than the number of girls used?

Unfortunately this past week it has been, yes. I'm waiting for my dick to start burning again after I bb'd chlamydia girl two nights ago. So far so good, so maybe she got it sorted out!

Re: 2019 - BALLZ TO THE WALL

Well, your opinion is entirely subjective so perhaps we can give a larger sample size on whether they are cute or not. Pics would allow us to give you a more reliable diagnosis.

Note that you can see it from their tits too so...

Unfortunately I only have pics of the one with chlamydia which obviously means she can't have superaids (because that would just be too unfortunate and I'd already be gg'd anyway). :/

I've paid 7800 in rake i over about 50k hands in August.
And on top of that I have hit the worst run I have ever experienced over a 10k hand sample. Mind boggling how bad I have run.
I was the 888 guy vs your jj btw. Probably the only decent bit of run good I had all month -(

Pretty sure this is incorrect. Do you have link to the paper?

Fairly sure it is correct. Heard the same stat being talked about in the podcast "The drive" with Peter Attia, talking to sleep scientist Matthew Walker. Both these gentlemen definitely seem to know their **** so would surprise me if it's bogus.

It was 10bb/100 after first couple weeks but seems to have calmed down to 7.85bb/100 at the moment. 31% vpip

Yeah it was a direct quote from Matthew Walker. Walker and Attia are probably the number 1 and 2 endboss sleep scientists there is today.

Re: 2019 - BALLZ TO THE WALL

I stand corrected

Think I was confused as never heard it referred to as quarter-life before.

So basically if you drink caffeine ever, even if you wake up at 4am, there will still be residual caffeine in your system when you come to sleep, blocking adenosine receptors?

Well the typical term is half life, which is 6 hours for caffeine, but a quarter life is a thing too. It can take up to 72 hours I think to completely get it out of your system IIRC too. Hard to say how much of an affect it has; I think I recall a study in which people who drank caffeine in the mornings got a full hour less REM sleep on average than those who didn't.

But as I said anecdotally, when I detoxed from caffeine entirely, I had some of the worst insomnia of my life :')

That rake is nuts. Good a reason as any to move up. Paying just over 1 bb/100 at 2knl

That's the dream right there! If the average reg/game at 200nl is the same as the average reg/game at 2knl, the 2knl reg's winrate is 8bb/100 higher automatically!

I'm convinced this is the only reason rapidesh isn't kRuShInG high stakes yet.
