Re: **&#@$** 2018 STTF POOP TALK THREAD **^%~*

Whatever it's merits, part of the reason why fasting has tougher traction is that it's harder to sell/make money off of. Versus all the (regulated & unregulagted herbal) supplements out there.

For me it's crazy how much it makes the senses pop when doing a longer fast. As someone who lives a computer/indoor existence for longer stretches. The best finger/touch/taste/color awareness sense I can remember in a long time. Also helped get me over a couple of food aversions, and makes kale taste a lot better.

Some doctors like Jason Fung have been doing research on incorporating fasting & diet changes for diabetic/insulin resistant patients as well. All something to do your own research/trial-and-error on.

Re: **&#@$** 2018 STTF POOP TALK THREAD **^%~*

with regards to weight loss: i've heard good things, both in the literature and anecdotally from people who practice it, about time restricted eating:

http://sciencenetlinks.com/science-n...ricted-eating/

Quote:
Putting more hours between dinner and breakfast may stave off obesity, at least in mice. This according to biologist Satchin Panda, and his colleagues at the Salk Institute in La Jolla, California. His team studied mice on high-fat diets. One group was allowed to eat freely at all times, and became obese and unhealthy. But another group, which ate the same number of daily calories as the first group—but within a strict eight-hour window—fared better.

That group’s cholesterol, blood sugar, and liver function were all nearly normal as well. Panda says that modern society’s late-night dining and snacking may be contributing to the obesity epidemic. I’m Bob Hirshon for AAAS, the Science Society.

Re: **&#@$** 2018 STTF POOP TALK THREAD **^%~*

Global update, back to about $160 ($157.72, just so I don't jinks myself) from about half cash games, half sng's. The sng's and mtt's is all I really want to play, but seeing 500 cash flops each week gets me into the $5k freerollish mtt on Sundays so been doing that too. I've been tempted to just deposit and play more mtt's but have held strong so far, mostly because I know in the long run they will suck my soul

Exactly. Playing mtt's full time I would wake up every morning excited and go to bed almost every night depressed.

I don't particularly object to all you guys who no longer participate in the strategy threads having this chat thread in STT, but do you really need to have "POOP" in the title showing on the main page?

Looks like a title more suitable for one of the community forums like OOT.

Don't know what to say dude, other than we have had this thread for....donno, 7 or 8 years? There is a pretty rich history to the sttf group to which you are probably unaware. There is even a book about it. If you show an interest you will probably here some interesting stories if you get us in a sharing mood.

If you aren't interested that's fine. Just know that the "bull****" threads are where the discussions took place that came up with chip modeling, icm, etc. We (as a group, not me) solved sng's, all in the open, in public discussions, in the bs type threads.

Should merit a bit of leeway to still have thread to keep up with each other. See it as a resource. Hanging out in this thread you have at least 50 years experience playing poker for a living, probably closer to 100.

Edit- that said, if AMT wants to change poop to **** or bull**** whatever, nobody cares.

Lol, if everyone checked in every time they pooped this thread would be more active. Maybe we do need to keep the poop, make it a habit

I think he's probably near Mexico City, so no. But a report on something burning on its way out is a strong possibility.

im in mexico right now and pooped.

i will say, having the little literal s**t basket instead of flushing the toilet paper was odd at first, but kind of makes a lot of sense when you get used to it

The reverse "oddness" is why sometimes you see paper all over the floor in the US (when there's no trash can by the toilet). We all get used to our own systems.

I didn't know about that and I've pooped in Mexico. I hope I didn't clog up people's pipes.

In 2014 we (Obama) put nearly a 30% tariff on panels from China and somewhat less from Taiwan. The Trump tariff is 30% across the board, so it's worse, but not that much worse. It's a speed bump, but not a road block. Of course it's bad for American jobs as there are over 100 times as many jobs in sales and installation as in manufacturing. There was a threat of a floor price for imports which would have been about a 100% tariff, so it could have been worse.

Just so your not ignored...not sure anyone in here would know. I knew 7 or 8 years ago, hell, even knew what a DON was probably. I haven't watched a training video in 7 or 8 years, and then it was in cash games. Does jman (Phil Galfond) still have a site? I know fieryjustice (Jonathan Little) writes books but I think he did videos at one point (no idea if he did any on sngs though)

I miss those guys (among many I miss). The sttf gatherings (official and otherwise) were some of my best times in life.

Afaics there are hardly any books about STTs, which probably is a good thing. It's more interesting when you have to work it out for yourself.

Friend Jonathan Little (fieryjustice) on Facebook. He has a blog, training sessions and is very active in teaching.

Started in SNG's way back in the day, moved to MTT's, done good things in live tourneys...

Still, posts a lot about SNG play.

Good luck.
