Delta Comfort, and unfortunately Terrence I am one of those people who like to board the plane first. Was the start of a pretty good weekend, imo.

Not 100% sure yet on exact dates, but want to go for a week or two at the start of the series to primarily pay cash games.

TChan mentioned an article about if a table is "Full of fish" that it makes it so they are playing mathematically correctly.

I've been trying to google it, but can't find it. Would love to see it if it can be located.

Definitely worth a read, and a re-read (which is what I'm going to do now!), for any players who play limit poker games of any variety.


Edit - has its own Wikipedia mention, too! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morton%27s_theorem

Next podcast can you guys please explain what 10% bodyfat means?

Like is that Christian Bale from The Machinist or Christian Bale from American Psycho?

Whoa... fascinating article.

I'll still never forget something said to me during a limit cash game a while back. When I first took my seat, the player next to me turned to me and grumbled, "Careful, I think these folks are all working together." And I thought, oh he's one of THOSE people. Move up where they respect your raises, buddy. Of course, I soon felt his pain: we both played until dawn and got stuck by a good 40 big bets each.

My favorite hand was the last one I played before I stood up: Seat 9 (UTG) limps. Seats 1 and 2 limp behind, Seat 3 folds, then Seat 4 raises. Seat 5 calls. I'm in the SB with two black queens and 3-bet. (No one in Seat 7.) BB in Seat 8 cold calls, everyone else calls all the way around.

Flop: AK6. Well, dammit. I check. Seat 8 bets. Seat 9 raises. Seat 2 folds but Seats 1, 4 and 5 all stay in for two bets. I fold. Seat 8 calls.

Turn: 5. Check to Seat 9, who bets. Four calls.

River: 5. Check to Seat 9, who bets. Seat 1 now raises. Three cold calls plus the Seat 9 overcall.

Five-way showdown:
Seat 8: K8
Seat 9: K6
Seat 1: 75
Seat 4: 99
Seat 5: A7

Yes, Seat 1, who cold-called for three bets both preflop and on the flop, won 33 big bets by chasing down running fives.

Obviously, I had a good laugh about this with some friends, but someone asked the same question as that poor sap next to me: some of the plays are so bad that it's suspicious... are you sure a few of those players weren't working together to try to run you down? (My answer: if they are, I hope they keep trying.)

No, the other players weren't teaming up (or they would have done a better job at it). However, that article explains why so many six- and seven-handed pots certainly seemed like shenanigans were going on. So Morton's term "implicit collusion" is great. Or maybe it should have been "unintentional collusion."

Awesome read, TChan, thanks for sharing.

I'm not sure if I'm missing a joke but that's a lot closer to 14% than to 4%.

Stage-ready bodybuilders are around 4% bodyfat. It's insanely low and not sustainable for more than a few days, if even.

Your follow-up picture of The Rock is probably twice the BF% you're stating as well.

This is an alright guide I guess though of course in actuality the number doesn't really matter:

Both are extremely low (prob sub 10%) but obviously one is much healthier.

How you actually look at X% will be different from person to person. Some guys can see abs at 15%, some need to diet down to 9%. Depends on your muscle mass/insertations/size/general genetics etc.

The number isn't worth focusing on, just concentrate on the mirror and your performance.

Haha, sorry I didn't mean to sound like a dickhead if I did I'm just not down with all the memes and such and could easily miss some obvious reference.

And the only straight draw. So many outs, it’s practically a mandatory call.
