Re: European politics

oh yes, certainly i am excusing it, as former ambassador george kennon , former secretary of defense william perry , and former ambassador william burns also make excuses for it So you think that in denying the existence of the Ukrainians as a population group different from Russians, invading thei...

Re: Age of Empiers games survey

One of the worst surveys I've ever seen. Way, way, WAY too long and so many redundant questions.

The length is good for us though. The longer it is, the more likely that only enthusiasts complete it, and enthusiasts are disproportionately multiplayer players

Re: Reviving ep

Wanted to play AoE3 for nostalgia reasons a while ago, downloaded DE, played a few games and uninstalled that same day. It was not the experience I was looking for because of how new everything was. I might be up for some games on EP, @ me

Re: why privacy is completely fucked

You could see it as a choice between working a couple days a month more and not having your data out there, or working as now and having it out there. Isn't that an easy choice? When it comes down to it, what's the value of this perceived lack of privacy? Would it ever come close to weighing up to a...

Re: why privacy is completely fucked

As for seeing ads against our will, it's not like they're being forced on us a la "Fifteen million merits" (yet). It's the same choice. If you don't like it, don't use it. And there's usually the "premium" option. I generally spend money on the premium option but that doesn't st...

Re: why privacy is completely fucked

Maybe it helps to consider that no actual human is "looking at your data" so while it's technically out there, it effectively isn't. Bad point and I will expand on it tn. Unfortunately you are a “code bro” (my term, not too serious) with buyer’s remorse. Where's that expansion? I have som...

Re: Poker

I just get bored of the grind. Turns out I can play about 15k hands at a time before it starts getting tedious, then need a 6 month break or so. Don't think I'll ever git gud at this rate, but that's fine. I don't like tournaments, the shallow stacks often make it a 2 or less street game and that's ...

Re: Poker

Is that all 10NL? Nice volume considering you started playing that recently. Are you multitabling? As for this red/blue line business, I guess you're bluffing too much and/or calling too much. I have little in the way of advice other than the obvious stuff that you already know. Maybe this: Don't bl...

Re: Poker

I really wonder if they're stopping any cheating with this tbh. If you decide to cheat in poker, you're not going to look at this half measure and think "oh, damn, they got me, guess I'll go do something else with my life". You're just going to use a second PC, a VM, or your phone. You can...

Re: Poker

An actual cheater would obviously not consider it any hurdle at all to just have another PC sitting next to them with a solver open, or a virtual machine, or even their phone. It's pointless to try to stop RTA this way, the only real way to combat it is to see how close to GTO someone is playing and...

Re: Poker

GG is now sending warnings again when I have GTO+ open while playing. That really sucks, I was using it a lot during play. This might be the nail in the coffin again for me (for about 6 months, if history is any indication). Grinding while analyzing spots I just played to improve was so much more sa...

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

Just on the flop sizing: I only use one size (30%) to simplify because I noticed solvers don't give a fuck about flop sizing, big or small is almost always the same EV. I guess since no one is exploiting you in this pool, it's probably right to just bet big if you would have to fold to a raise (prev...

Re: Poker

I've been playing against some solutions that I had GTO+ calculate overnight. The fact that GTO bluffs more than my 10NL opponents is quite obvious, especially in 3-bet and 4-bet pots. Even though the theory is not always applicable because preflop ranges in real life are different and everyone is p...

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

The times where I got stacked bluffing or just lost a large amount with AKo after they call my 4-bet with a low-medium pocket pair and I miss the flop are making me consider 4-bet jamming with that hand instead of regular sizing. I noticed the solver likes 4-bet jamming with AKo but it only does it ...

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 w...

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 tried...
