Okay,
Do I play in a live home MTT tourney (that is actually run better than most Casino uMTT), or do I put the hands in online when the games should be juicy??

So for those wondering if there will be a new boom.....I think this will be it

https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/28...mbling-404904/

If this happens and say a company like Harrahs opens up USA legal poker site, the games will get really juicy. I may have to take a leave of abscence from my current job for the first 6 months these sites are opened.

I picked the wrong week to give up sniffing glue!


Vodka, whiskey, beer, wine, coffee, tea, bread. Poker, board games, video games, masturbation.

Don't forget caffeine. Remember when you could walk into any office on our floor at work and there would be a case or two of Monster? I swear that stuff has crack in it.

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

Can someone help me figure this out? It probably doesn't deserve it's own thread. Just some random ramblings in my brain to keep from going brain dead at work.

isolate/cbet line one function vs two. disregard cards, hand strength and future value, etc. we're playing with 2 jokers in our hand.

fish limps, we isolate for 5 BB, fish calls.
Flop: 11.5 BB

We cbet 6-11.5 BB and need fish to fold between 34%-50% depending on bet size. Standard is typically 60% success rate which would mean that cbetting every single time is highly profitable.

ok, but now we take the line as a whole.
If we don't cbet every time, the line as a whole becomes marginal at best.

Lets say we cbet 80% of the time, and when we do, we win 60% of the time. Lets bet 7 into 11.5. 20% of the time we just c/f because board is gross or w/e reason and we lose our 5BB from the PF iso. and we're looking at profitability for the hand as a whole here (PF and flop).


0.20(-5 BB) + 0.8(0.6*6.5 BB - 0.4*12 BB)
-1 + 0.8(3.9 - 4.8)
= -1.72 BB for the function as a whole

^ is my rationale or math completely messed up in this second calculation? We basically need to cbet 100% to keep the 2nd calculation close to profitable. and a smaller cbet in this situation

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

I'm fairly sure it doesn't work like that JH1.

I think you would have to 'filter' the times we have a hand that we bet for value or we are Cbetting when we miss.

Actually I remember CMAR and Mpeth had some argument over this lol. have fun!
