Not Quite Thread Worthy - April 2015 (NSFW)
So someone told me about this and just wanted to say a couple things: 1) The only reason I didn't respond to Luke's diatribe vs. me isn't because I think I'm too good to respond to him or anything, but mainly because I don't want to get into a debate about my character on Twitter. It's completely unproductive and isn't going to prove anything either way. Have I said some arrogant things on Twitter' Sure no doubt (I will say that some of them were tongue-in-cheek because I know people think I'm very arrogant so was just playing off that). I like to think that most people who have met me ...

Off Topic's Top 10 NFL QBs, 2014 Edition
the thing with ppl hating on foles is even if he's not necessarily the greatest or more talented than a bunch of other QBs is that he has a great offensive system and the best playcaller in the league. Systems matter. We can make a big hullabaloo about how the system is "making" him but is anyone really going to care if he's putting up a 30-10 every year (obv 27-2 was just insane but even if he regressed to that he'd have some of the best stats in the league.) QBs/systems/surrounding talent etc are so inextricably linked that it's pretty likely Foles continues to put up top 10 stats over ...

WSOP OT rail/live stream thread *no spoilers*
don't you think the logical assumption would be that someone who follows the tourney scene more closely (me) would have a much clearer idea than someone who clearly doesn't (you)' Nope, seems to make more sense to say "LEVEL''" without even doing a cursory search on google to see if maybe there's a reason I was saying that. That's what I don't understand---you freely admit you don't really know but still assume there's no reason to say that. btw the year Ivey made it, other than him, no one else would rank in the top 100 tourney players.

WSOP OT rail/live stream thread *no spoilers*
why would it be' Dan is one of the 5 best tournament players in the world by anyone's measure, Martin's probably top 15-25 and Craig's in the top 50-100. Considering the remaining field, the other 6 likely won't be fish so doesn't even seem like much of a stretch to say that Name another year where it would even be close'

OT Regs Buying and Selling WSOP 2014 Action
he auctioned..and obv we are just guesstimating based on field quality/our own perceived edges. No one actually knows (shrug). I think the ME is underpriced generally and 1500s/1ks are overpriced (haven't bought any action 4 years running) but most ppl don't. Structure/field quality/perceived skill etc are all important factors though of course. Other things matter too---someone like Negreanu or Hellmuth have even bigger edges in tourneys like the main (eg: I wouldn't swap with Hellmuth in a 5k tournament but I would be thrilled to swap with him in the main as ppl will just gift him---he ...

def a bigger problem with collusion in this type of situation since competing bidders are likel to know each other fairly well. good point bigger field size increases your variance sure; that's why buying highroller action is actually pretty low variance (and why such a market has sprung up for it recently). my point is twofold, dont think your average grinder makes as much as they think in the main/good players have higher ROIs than ppl are willing to pay for

OT Regs Buying and Selling WSOP 2014 Action
i think he ended up going at 3-1 or something for the main which I think is relatively close but prob around his ROI. I think main action tends to be the most inefficient of markets (ppl are willing tot pay 1.3 for shitty grinders but balk at paying high mu for great players whose edges are magnified immensely in a tourney with an amazing structure). Obv there is a cutoff point at some point but ya. I think that's the point he was trying to prove by selling that 10% btw---doesn't need to sell but main event prices are pretty off. Timex won't even let me buy an extra 10% of myself at 2.3 to 1 ...

"I'll be auctioning where everyone gets the same rate as the 10th highest percent(ie if A bids 1% for $250, B bids 5% for $1000, C bids $1600 for 10%, A gets 1% for 160, B gets 5% for 800, C gets 4% for 640). Right now as an example we have 1% Carl_lafong 275 1% Blopp 270 2% kcbj6 500 10% NF 2400 If no one else were to bid, they would get 1%, 1%, 2% and 6% respectively for $240 each. All bids must exceed $240 but do not have to exceed $275. For instance if I received only one other bid of 3% for $750, they would get 3% of the action NF wanted for $720" that's how timex did it which i ...

WSOP OT rail/live stream thread *no spoilers*
thanks for the support guys! idk why i'm gonna but since ppl asked i'll explain bustout hand perspective for me: obv river jam is close when its only 2x his bet (makes it more difficult for me to be bluffing); however, i'm not beaten very many hands and the only ones I am are discounted significantly by flop and turn play. JJ/TT often check back flop; TT almost always bets turn and KQ usually barrels turn to try to fold me off 6x (this is actually confirmed by him checking back TT---he thinks my range is weak enough that I fold turn so much that he didnt want to try to triple TT). So apart ...

jamming 44 might show profit in a vacuum but the risk/reward isn't worth it imo especially with 2 ppl behind who can still wake up (and 44 has no blockers to the top 5-7% of hands) anyway thanks guys! hopefully close one of these out sometime haha

i hate talking about markup but just skimmed over last cpl pages and amartin is right. 1.4 is lol for most players in those especially one who hasn't relocated full-time or nearly full-time or a well-known crusher. The structure is just too bad early for anyone to justify that sort of MU look at the fts of 1500s/1ks so far---hint: they're mostly regs, it's hard for Todd Amateur to win anymore

this is why the way ppl view markup is stupid. you have guys are marginal to breakeven trying to sell at 1.1-1.3 and then ppl get their panties in a bunch over true bosses selling at 2.0 hint: you'd rather have hastings at 2.0 than most guys who are selling at 1.0-1.3 When timex did his bank of timex stuff last year, i think he had me listed at 2.4 to 2.6 for hte main and i'm not sure i'd sell at less than that especially considering he's more conservative about ROIs than anyone i know

yes I've actually played with Kitai a ton. He won the EPT I final tabled (played with him a lot from 27 down---Timex told me at the time that ppl in the know were tellin him Kitai was better than Elky which I thought was crazy but it's actually not close). Also played with him for 10 hrs in Partouche, 5 hrs in EPT Barcelona a couple years ago and the latter half of day 2 and day 3 in this tourney. Yes sample size is a thing but I'm fairly comfortable in saying that Kitai is one of the best players I've ever played with live. He makes you work incredibly hard to win even small pots and his ...
