Kats Dance, Clocks Fly, 2006 is Odd, and Garth Gives Advice
How are you all on this fine 01:02:03 04/05/06? Yeah, I am a nerd – sue me. Not much news. I may need to take a few days off playing poker to make some money at my second-side job.
I will be playing the Mookie tonight as long as I do not crash and burn in the snowstorm on the way home. Tonight’s Mookie is very special: Kats First Dance. It is named for Katitudes first MTT win last week. Now if we can get Veneno to play (and she wins) we can name next weeks “Take that Bitch!”. Katitude has gone 5-0 vs me in the last five MTTs we have been in. Oh yea, it burns. Last night at the WWDN I went out early when my Pocket Rockets got creamed by Sailboats. No bad plays on either side. Basically I was against someone I would classify as *cough* average. So I could put her on anything from AK, KQ, or lower to a set or even a flush draw. It *might* have been a good idea for me to fold there and against a better opponent I may have but I can live with my move against this particular opponent.
I am also taking the Garthmeister Challenge. I asked my good friend Garth what he thinks I should focus on for the near future. So he suggested I try five 20$-180/SNGs. I think that is a fine idea. So that is what I am going to do for the next few days.
Last but not least. I know mathematical theory works on known facts and not unknown factors. Unless your talking about Chaos theory. However. Do an experiment. Deal yourself 20 cards from a deck. Pick a suit. Now how many times did you deal 20 cards and 3 of that suit not come up? If we run that scenario a million times I bet the percentages of a single suit not being in those twenty cards would be small. So when we play full ring games and draw to our flush because we have “9” outs, do we really? Should we factor it at like 7 if it is full ring, 8 if it is six-handed, and a full 9 if it is HU? Could Veneno be onto something here? Betting her draws with the full amount of outs? Hmm. Just some food for thought. I am sure just like my many other theories someone has already suggested this and has a cool name for it and everything.
