My problem now is starshelper. It says it's running but none of my preflop/postflop sizes + the image below are working





Have tried running the newest version and re-downloading it but doesn't seem to help...

Anyone have any ideas?
changed dealer messages to "everything" again as you said stars settings reset?

    Not sure why you would want to put yourself into silly gamble spots vs a monster whale while taking a shot, but then again, I quit playing Poker quite some time ago.

    Thanks for the responses. Not sure if you stated financial goals for poker but Iíd like to see you in the 200s at the end of the year! Life gets real easy when you start making 300+ per year

    I like how Scout one day decided that you know what, $0,0001/0,0002 nl 6max is too irresponsible. Let's keep it to $0,00005/0,0001 ring.

    I can only assume the man has the world's most sensitive adrenaline glands.

    Lol depends on how you handle the money. If you live like it will never end then you may be in trouble someday when the 300k hand breakeven stretch hits you.

    Confirmed tho, more money more problems..

    Hey, bena, could you post your 500z graph for the days of monday - thursday and then friday - sunday? Quite curious to see how winrates change during the days of the week over good sample sizes.

    Here I'm break-even during weekdays and all the profit comes from the weekend lol.

    In my sample and quite a few regs... Sunday has always been an oddly death losing day. Always been curious if itís replicated to other people or just people I know on skype.

    Also Tuesday was a surprisingly winning day for most of us at a time we all thought the games were the deadest

    I noticed when I was playing live full time at the casino that Sundays were terrible but Monday/Tuesday was nuts as well. Spooky.

    I think it's better to put all days of the week grouped in one sample to reduce variance, you would need a 4x bigger sample size to have the same level of confidence if you look at each day of the week(monday - thursday).

    it makes sense, also because most MTT regs are the fish in the cash game pools, probably running hot in my sample on sundays.

    I don't really think this is a silly gamble tbh. Scout is a longtime whale, who doesn't generally stick around for a long time. He 4b/folds a chunks (further making the 5b shove even more profitable) and will get in random hands like K7s QJo (his favourite hand - for real). I think this is fairly high variance, but making a LOT of $'s.

    i've never made more than 150k in a year! 200 would be insane, and 300 basically impossible unless i binked an mtt.
