Re: *** The Official Isildur1 Thread ***

has anyone run an EV calc on all of his hands? (for all in equity)

obviously that doesnt tell the whole story, but it would be interesting either way.

Yes, but the population on 500/1000 NL is how many? 10 players? I.e not interesting to draw any conclusions at all.

Any update on this? I said before, there are a lot of very good technically minded people here, and I very much doubt that your theories will go over their heads.

Seems like your bluff was called - stick to "boosting the rng" or whatever it is.

Plausible, but unrealistic - as good as impossible to do in real-time for an average joe.

I think FT use 128 or 256 bit encryption between their servers and the client. This is the same standard as used by banks and ATM machines. It's possible to crack with a supercomputer cluster and a few tens of years - per hand. So like I say, as good as impossible. If I had the computing power to crack 128-bit encryption, I'd be hitting the banks.

Re: *** The Official Isildur1 Thread ***

Watching this week's action has been incredibly entertaining.

My two cents worth:

1) Seems Isildur1 took full advantage of Durrrr tilting; too many short buys, shoving light, trying to force the action. It is much harder to force the action in a PLO game vs. a NLH game.

2) Don't know how much money Durrrr has, nor care to speculate, but he'd better have a boatload in reserve if he's "willing" to lose this much in a week. It can happen again and again.

3) At times, I'm not sure if I'm watching expert play or just picking up bad habits. Some of the huge pots didn't have to become so; it's just that neither player was willing to give up a marginal hand and wait for a better spot! They became shovefests!

4) Possible strategy against Isildur1? Ivey might do well to get a single HU table going while Isildur1 is busy multi-tabling Dwan, PA, and company. With all the activity going on at the other tables, Ivey could probably bide his time and dismantle Isildur1 piece by piece.

5) I love watching these Gambleleros shoot it up. I don't want anyone to go "broke". Watching the multi-million dollar swings is great!

Not if you plant a man in the middle attack, then you don't even need to crack the encryption, you have the public key and private key required to do it.

Now on some level if actually in the ISP architecture that should be possible.

Re: *** The Official Isildur1 Thread ***

everything is too suspicious, from his abnormal profit from his sudden winning appearance. From one day to another this guy appears and busts every online pro winning more than 4 million from them. I mean it's really suspicious and extremely impressive. But still nobody can be sure he is cheating, there is no concrete evidence that is true. Nobody can say that. You can think he is cheating but you cannot state it.
