Can't put my finger on it exactly why it bothers me.

Maybe to be considered an expert you have to pass a GTO examination and get your credentials.

But there were probably many people that were called "experts" on here that are now getting their teeth kicked in. Or maybe they always did.

I'll try and reword so maybe one day I will get you to sign. But calling Belichek an expert sounds weird too. In a sense he does get dealt a premium hand every time with Tom Brady. Hard to misplay the nuts. No match for my Eagles though.

I'm not going to discuss the rest of your post, even though I think it has the wrong approach to poker, but to answer your last question:

IME, whenever I felt I was roughly the best player at the table at a particular limit day-in/day-out, I felt I was roughly about mid-pack when I played the next highest limit on a day-in/day-out basis.

This obviously only applies to places that have a full ladder of games.
