Re: Poker

Hmm ye flop isn't great, he should have a range and nut advantage even if he doesn't defend all the pocket pairs in full frequency (and it's possible field overdefend those). Atleast there is no immediate straight possible. It's not a board you want to cbet range for small. In fact you want to check...

If EP wouldn't have halted development and continued I'm sure it would have had very similar changes to what we have with DE today. Apart from the extra civs of course.
What is DE today without extra civs and features?

Re: Reviving ep

actually it was basically not possible to cheat on the latest iteration of EP, while I'm not sure about DE where it seems even basic cheats are completely viable

Re: Poker

I want to emphasise how extreme the redline/blue line thing is for me. I have a small sample, but I think you see this both where I am slightly winning on 888 and losing on gg: You can see on both that where I appear to be winning is when I have learnt to make more folds in bigger pots and give up ...

Sweden recs

I was going to write down a new Sweden guide and post recs but cba and I only post the recs. Please note it's not a selection so they are a bit random. Some are good, some are not. I guess the relevant thing is that older games have more primitive strat/build order, newer games are more refined. htt...

Re: Poker

Those measures do stop some cheating because they make it harder. Harder = less cheating, both in terms of attempts but also effectiveness. I mean the sole fact you have to use a VM or some remote control (I don't even know how that works exactly) is a step that reduce the number of people that are ...

Re: Poker

It is a complex topic. Personally I think that any measure that makes cheating harder is welcome and still better than none. In your example, another PC would be needed, which is already a valid deterrent for some people, as it makes screen scraping a more complex task. Not to mention you need some ...

Re: Poker

No it does not, you get a warning and GTO+ interface also locks out. Tbf I wouldn't be too happy as your opponent knowing you have a solver opened while playing :biggrin:

Re: Poker

A quick update from me. I switched to playing primarily tournament poker about a year ago and built up a 1-2k bankroll on unibet and around 1k on gg poker playing low and microstakes respectively. More recently I have played some cash games (my job means I don't really have time for an MTT session ...

Re: Poker

The call was 58.5 into 142.5 so I needed ~30% chance to win. I was almost certain he had QJ but figured the boat outs plus the very small chance he's bluffing or value jamming worse might get me to 30%. I was surprised to find my equity at almost 23%, I was estimating it a bit lower, anyway do you ...

Re: Poker

Ye bluff catching on the river by definition is basically 0 EV I want to make sure I understood this correctly. You're saying if your opponent is perfectly balanced your range is necessarily indifferent between calling and folding? I guess this would mean you should decide between the two based onl...

Re: Poker

Thanks. I was definitely less comfortable folding the first one, and I think your analysis makes more sense than mine at the time. Got hit by a 10 BI downswing where they just have it EVERY TIME and I of course never get paid when I do. And the flips have been so bad that I'm just not expecting to ...

Re: Poker

Made a couple of tight folds just now that I'm not sure are correct. This first one is probably not a reg because their preflop size is too big. Basically I found their small river donk super suspicious (it just seems like a fish with a big hand scared of a check behind and wanting a call) and trie...

Re: Poker

For buying gto wizard, don't bother. Great tool for many things but too expensive and atm you can't even practice a spot from a nodelocked flop (or atleast I don't find a way to make it work). For practising in general, GTO+ is great. Solve a list of flops at night or whenever you're not at the PC a...

Re: Is DE slowly turning into a pay to win/enjoy game?

Actually it's not just balance. Balance overall it's not even terrible. It's more about the clusterfuck of features that DE added. To OP question, yes new civs have a different design where they have potentially access to almost everything. Old civs have design limitations in terms of unit roster fo...

Re: Poker

GTO+ is a great tool, I also have it and I don't regret at all buying it instead of piosolver since it 90% of the same features but costs considerably less. GTO wizard is indeed too expensive for its use (I have it but I don't use it nearly as much as I should to justify the cost). Great tool noneth...

As is typical for me I took another 6 month break and recently started up again. Now playing 10 NL zoom (on GG because we STILL don't have stars here).
