Live from the Two Plus Two Studios - On this episode of the Pokercast: Several important pieces of poker news to catch you up on over the last week!

Adam. Never give up and never surrender on BP's cash. It will be worth it. A short break from compliance in Vegas, but you can fix it.

Here's maybe an unpopular view (or maybe popular and I'm just not up on stuff), but I don't think exercise is net helping you. For overall health, exercise is great. Once you win, do exercise and reap the health benefits. For the next two months, this idiot says you should skip it. Here's some meh evidence. As a bad explanation, you're going to more than make up for any calories lost from exercise you do by eating more. Caloric compliance is your friend. Keep a log of 100% of what you eat if that's what it takes, but reduced calories are where it is at. When you go out with friends to a great restaurant, praise yourself for being an tough guy for eating on diet and not drinking -- you're made of iron and full of willpower, they'll totally understand. You can't treadmill your way to losing 20 pounds in 2 months. You can keep up your good diet habits and intermittent fast your way there.

Any time you go to a meal and eat great instead of what your friends are eating, hit me up on Skype and I'll tell you that you did great. I'm sure other folks will, as well. We'll be your network. Don't give up. Rub money on body parts. Bill will love paying you. Everyone is rooting for you to win.

Exercise increases his caloric deficit, and every pound matters right now.

The fact that people eat more after exercising doesn't mean that he's forced to, only that he might be tempted to.

Any study that says exercise doesn't help weight loss or that diets don't work is ridiculous. Blaming exercise or diets for consistent failure on most people's parts to comply to the diet or not overeat is silly.

The fact is that this is very complicated. There is insufficient evidence to take sides in the do/don't exercise for weight loss argument. The takeaway from the Vox article linked above (which I only scanned, but I've read lots on the general topic) is that the body is a complex dynamic system where you can't simply say "okay that was 200 calories on the bike, so that's -200 to my metabolic total today." To extrapolate this into "exercise is useless for weight loss" is very questionable. This is a case, I think, where academics get too centred around the specific topic of their peer-reviewed RCTs and fail to look at system interactions.

A few things that are very very unlikely to be wrong:

- Frequent movement throughout the day is almost certainly going to be helpful. Movement doesn't specifically have to be exercise; it simply means the absence of sedentism. It means going for frequent walks, taking multiple movement/stretch breaks from the computer or while driving, etc.

- Exercise to the point of enjoyment is almost certainly going to be helpful. Creating repeatable minor nervous system stresses (a set of chinups here, a fast mile there) is demonstrably helpful.

- Frequent exercise at high levels of difficulty (say, 8-out-of-10 or greater more than 4x per week) when combined with significant caloric deficit is almost certainly bad for health in general, and likely to be bad for long-term weight loss. It should be noted that this might win Adam the bet, but will likely have long term negative consequences. (There is no shortage of 4% bodyfat Crossfit athletes who look amazing, but have significant health problems.)

In closing, I'll agree with the general thought that correct nutrition (as well as sleep and stress reduction) likely accounts for more when it comes to sustainable long-term weight loss. But I will also agree that movement and exercise are critical components for long-term health.

A further thought on this: obviously hunter-gather populations don't "exercise". Imagine a hunter-gatherer tribe looking at us on our treadmills and stationary bikes saying "what the **** are these crazy people doing?"

Yet they are very healthy. Lean, muscular, great blood work when they get tested, basically zero incidence of heart disease. They are way better off than genetically similar neighbours who have been influenced by Westerners.

Kitavans of Melanesia: https://www.google.com/search?q=kita...=1637&bih=1005
Hadza of Tanzania: https://www.google.com/search?biw=16....0.S0YL-4kYljw

Clearly, humans do not need to exercise to be healthy.

But to say "these people don't exercise and they are healthy" is very much missing the point. These are people who move around at low intensity for the majority of the day, who eat almost no processed food or refined sugar, wake up with the sun and go to sleep shortly after it, have strong community ties, and do not have to worry about spreadsheets or Powerpoint presentations.

Realistically, very few of us in the modern world will live like a Kitavan or Hadza because we do have spreadsheets and hockey practices and Netflix series to catch up on. But the lessons we can take from them are apparent: eat well, sleep lots (ideally with the sun), live a generally low-stress lifestyle, move frequently in diverse patterns, and have a good community.

How do they sleep? In one chunk or two?

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28063234

Perhaps surprisingly, they sleep less and lighter than we do in the western world. But they're also sleeping in pitch black with only moon/starlight and no city light and minimal noise so who knows how that compares.

They also seem to sleep in "shifts", and they are not all usually asleep at the same time: https://www.theguardian.com/science/...ution-survival

Love "Tight Weird."

Finally a way to describe my play that's nicer than "generally tight with occasional bursts of mindblowing stupidity."

Yup, that's a perfect description. I remember playing in the Aussie Millions 6-7 years ago with <<name of well-known famous player who isn't a real poker pro but claimed to be>>, who got moved to my table, didn't play a hand for 2 hours, then re-shoved 20bb vs my button open with 64o.
