Reminds me of a dude that used to hang around here, I think wolffund was his name. Typical degen, but one time he made $2,000,000 overnight because he shorted just the right thing at just the right time... all with money he borrowed off his wife. Hah.
500 shares of BAC, (cash), and I did 5 contracts on Citi.

i don't get the raise for information line...

every check, fold, bet or raise, by me and my opponents, gives me information (specially of their range).

Bad news, Sammy -- I paid off the last of my debt to Bank of America Corp last month. I think when you itemize their 4th quarter returns, you'll see that the interest I was paying them was the main thing keeping them afloat.

You were lookin' for that third three, but you forgot that Professor Green folded on Fourth Street and now you're representing that you have it. The DA made his two pair, but he knows they're no good. Judge Kaplan was trying to squeeze out a diamond flush but he came up short and Mr. Eisen is futilely hoping that his queens are going to stand up. So like I said, the Dean's bet is $20.

Like, you know, on the turn, when their lead out range is polarized to nuts or air, and you can raise now to fold out air so you don't have to look up a big bet on the river.

Might be more useful in MTTs though....

The thing is you are not raising for value. You might raise for value and happen to get information. If you understand the dichotomy sorry to misunderstand your rhetorical question.

I was being sarcastic. Alex and I use to have this disdain for people who would post on strat thread 1) Raise for information, 2)Wait for a better spot, 3)Check for Pot Control...

1 and 3 can vary rarely every be use correctly, although there are times its plausible

2 is just stupid for cash games, its either -EV or +EV. (of course if we apply decision theory...)

Global warming is BS...I know for a fact since I went surfing (loose definition on surfing, I really just paddle and get pummeled by waves) sunday morning and froze my nutz off.


Case closed.

As a Canadian. living in one of the coldest capital cities in the world, all I have to say about global warming is:

Bring it on!!!

Sorry, I just don't see the downside and Al Gore should STFU. Fossil fuels and CFCs for everyone!

Re: *****Official February "greatest place on the interwebs" Chat Thread!*****

Question for some of the people here that grind more then 5 hours a day:

There are mixed ideas about this: You should play the juicy hours, but that really means you can only grind 3/4 hours a day?

Does it mean you should avoid the other hours? Or do they mean: You should play the juicy hours, and play the other hours?

Obviously you should play as much as you can if you have an edge. If you have an edge at the less juicy times, add them in; if you lose during the non-juicy times, cut them out.

If you can only play your best for 3 or 4 hours, then you should try to play the juiciest times. But if you can beat the less juicy times and you can grind at your best for a long enough period to include the less juicy games, do it.

I always think of this in terms of the hourly rate that I charged as a lawyer. I had some high volume clients--insurance companies--that sent me scores of cases a year, and, therefore, were charged a lower hourly rate than my usual and customary rate the one off clients paid. But I still spent time on the lower paying cases.

Had I chosen to, I could have turned down all the low paying cases, made good money and worked fewer hours--my hourly would have gone up, but my total income would have gone down if i had only worked the juicy cases.
