Re: How good are you at poker?

I honestly think that if you keep records of your play you are automatically in the top 50%. Most of the guys in my room keep no records at all and don't seem to remember their hands from last week (seriously).

^ +1 a better poll would be how good are you compared to other 2p2 posters.

this is actually an interesting point to make imo, and was made apparent when libratus crushed the empire. libratus had a very different approach to lots of different spots than our top-tier human representatives WRT bet sizing and frequencies, and it showed that our idea/approximation of what constitutes "optimal" strategy in HUNL is actually pretty far from it. but we do ok vs each other, obv.

given how much more complex 6max poker is than HU, we're basically all just clicking buttons there too.

it's part of the fun imo

So you think the distribution of poker skill is the same for people who've:

1) Sought out this forum (Selection Bias).
2) Stayed on this forum (Survivorship Bias).

Is the same as for general population of poker players?

Re: How good are you at poker?

That answer is always a relative one...

2018: big Fish

How well at poker do I play?
I will check my wallet and say,
Won a bunch yesterday,
Then lost it all today,
So please ask me another day.

Re: How good are you at poker?

Yeah that. I was inside top 1% on OPR when playing a lot in 2007-2010. (Low abi tho so not printing)

Now Iím break even-slight losing even maybe ...just playing a handful of ss pkos a week and some 25 plo, exclusively on my phone

Poker used to be so sexy, now itís pretty bleh. Got to play a lot to be at your best, and thatís a single mans thing ...being able to dedicate so much time to it

I never really took to live poker, the atmosphere is so grim , and losing streaks at live cash is a much much worse feeling than online

Better than the people I play with. That's all that matters.

This. If I realize I'm not top 10%-20% at the table it's time to move on. Nothing else matters. The second-worst player in the world could make a fortune heads up against someone given sufficient enough time and bankrolls. Any best in the world talk is so much dick-waving.

How good are you at game selection?

Re: How good are you at poker?

New poll idea: How unlucky are you

Most unlucky player in the world
Top 10% most unlucky
Top 20% most unlucky
.....



wonder how that will go

So would any best at the table talk, as you mention, be a little dick-waving?
