Re: Phil Galfond to Start a Poker Site

I've been pretty much torturing myself over an email I sent Phil, 60 hours 3 hours sleep as I want to get on board in a creative capacity, itching to get back into the games or just poker in some form, feel like a broken degenrate right now, spent my last 50 quid on canvas a nice black label wine and some oils wink

Jist of what I posted cut out below, what y'all think?





People who play poker for leisure were introduced to it through watching films. There is an appeal to watching and hearing stories, its what personally got me fascinated with games, from chess to all sorts of cards game to liars dice (brilliant game, simple enough that the girls can join in and complex enough that y'all will love it. But yes I hear ya, its full of collusion, isn't sport to some degree? I digress) I'd recommend it a go to you and your friends for any ski resort late night drinking sessions in cosy log cabins after a day out on the slopes! If they all start ganging up on ya be the dealer and get people to move seats. Your a fair guy. Call it Musical Perudo.

And many gamers get into it because there friends do, or because of twitch. How do you bring gaming to leisure and romanticism to a new age?


Given what I see with Runitonce in its current form, on a budget I'd suggest interlude comic style cartoons that depict small extracts of Poker stories from years gone by with a caricature American husky voice (Think I remember you talking about imagining this in that voice, not yours) (And really, there's so many out there waiting to be told, I'm sure you could find a poker enthusiast in the poker world who'd love compile together boatloads of scripts for a pittance sum) You could get different avatars from your stock and make videos of different stories, and interlude them on load up. They could never be played twice, (To see again and for more of the same visit runitonce youtube), and you could design more and have a revolving door of these continually in the works. Dynamic avatars with stories, whats not to love? The avatars would bring a character of themselves to the games depending on what people see in them, and it would sort of give a story line that could change each month, and make it 'fresh' and bring a unique, non mathematical framework that creative players of all ilks could understand. You could progress onto the history of the online generation, have different characters, and each month could have a theme.

Re: Phil Galfond to Start a Poker Site

I take back what I said on post examination. I'm changing directions. Poker is a game of luck because i lost and in the past i tried really hard to win at this game and i just posted on the runitonce forums and i hate GTO with a passion. Joey I'm BITT Papi. and what I wrote was clearly a gimmick as stories have no place on a pokersite.

endeavours will now go into into famecoin ltd, all rights reserved

(seriously, if pokerstars wants me, i'm here, but I come at a price.... and no, not 350 dollars, not 350 thougsand, a million should do me but lets plays silly beggars? 3.14 or 52 card pickup slot machine, it all comes full circle anyway, its the general laws of karmaic justice. y'all be damned to hell if Doyle had his way. and no, this is not deadpan humour, pokerstars is not a shill company, DN is a stand up guy and i'd like to work closely with them. but if you use my idea i will not sue you, i will castrate you, so come at me bro i'm the new kid in town. wes anderson said never go full retard, daniel went black face cos his friends said it was alright, jamie fooxx paged iron man to be a mexican via transendental loops and he's a nervous guy but he's not made of steel, marvel comics would be owned by MJ if he wasn't killed for wanting a blanket, i'm a genie long live the dead

Re: Phil Galfond to Start a Poker Site

Game theory

Game theory is the formal study of decision-making where several players must make
choices that potentially affect the interests of the other players.


I make a decision with you. My decision is that poker is a game of luck. that effects you in that for you, poker is not a game of luck. for me, poker is a game of luck. do you see... why?



Mixed strategy


A mixed strategy is an active randomization, with given probabilities, that determines the
player’s decision. As a special case, a mixed strategy can be the deterministic choice of
one of the given pure strategies.


A pure strategy is to be lucky. Thus, your winnings, by default, are impure. DUCY ?


Nash equilibrium

A Nash equilibrium, also called strategic equilibrium, is a list of strategies, one for each
player, which has the property that no player can unilaterally change his strategy and get
a better payoff.


tough luck. Looks like you're eternally impure, yet lucky. A paradox enters the fray, and for once in this equation, I don't see why.

Payoff

A payoff is a number, also called utility, that reflects the desirability of an outcome to a
player, for whatever reason. When the outcome is random, payoffs are usually weighted
with their probabilities. The expected payoff incorporates the player’s attitude towards
risk.


my expected payoff is negative. Yours is positive. Can we balance the books, oh shylock?

Perfect information

A game has perfect information when at any point in time only one player makes a move,
and knows all the actions that have been made until then.


Your move, NVG

Re: Phil Galfond to Start a Poker Site

Update:

https://www.runitonce.eu/news/5-phil...9-20-16_1-five

A few cliffs as I watch the video:

- Delayed full start beyond Sept 22nd
- 1000 Beta testers to be invited from Sept 13th
- Still a few bugs to be worked out
- Phil apologies for delay and, as he has been wrong on start time thus far, doesn't wish to commit to an actual start date just yet.
- No info on rake yet

Re: Phil Galfond to Start a Poker Site

Looks good but I am not a fan of the dynamic avatar that changes based on how you are playing. I think it might just put some recs off if they are tight and see their avatar has changed to someone who is asleep.

Id prefer the board cards to just be flat and not angled but that's just personal preference.

Re: Phil Galfond to Start a Poker Site

For me it looks great with the exception of the way the community cards are tilted. Makes them slightly harder to read. Would prefer them flat like the player cards.

+1. The way the cards are tilted must have something to with the screenscrapers. Unibet has a similar layout and the reason is blocking them.

Re: Phil Galfond to Start a Poker Site

Also one other minor thing the colors on the cards are a bit too desaturated, especially in contrast with the felt. Should probably switch that around so the cards pop out instead of the felt.

The tilted cards and heads are horrible.

I miss the poker sites with a windows 95 look.

Re: Phil Galfond to Start a Poker Site

The software is too much like Nitrogen sports poker type. It should be more like what Full Tilt Poker used to be or something similar. I do not see anything innovative about this software and it does not look exciting at all.
Any competitor can change their buy-in structure and that seems the only different/decent part about it.

PS, Winamax, Party softwares look much better. It was a big hype at first, but now I do not see why I should play here once it launches. Galfond cares about the players? So does party and they do not spend the whole summer in Vegas for Wsop and do nothing.

+1 on ugly cards , also i think there should be an option to show the numbers VPIP PFR and 3bet and hands instead of the avatars imo.

I would like that too, but it would scare 'rec players', at least an option to remove the stupid avatars. (For the numbers we will just use PT or HM).

I guess you can design a pt4 HUD that completely blocks the avatars. But the tilted cards. I couldn't handle it.
