The Cloud: Diceman Experiment

I find this to be pretty amusing..

The Diceman Experiment
With a starting bank of $1000, every day I will choose six options as to which poker game I will play in that day.
I will then roll a dice to see which option I will take.
Most options will be within my bankroll, however some will not.
(To replicate a diceroll, and to make this experiment as transparent as possible, I will publish my six options daily before the first greyhound race of the day in the UK, which I will use as my "diceroll", the winning trap being the number I will choose).

I will update this blog daily with my efforts, but will also keep a "live event" log on the raisetheriver.com forum.


I am trying to help him out by giving him some advice on what the "scary" fifth choice should be.. I am helpful that way. I think I may try something like this at some point. I would change it up a little. First off the suggestions for all five options would come from the blog. Picks #1 and #2 and #3, the safest picks, would be chosen by me.. Picks #4 and #5 would be chosen by people who only hate me a little and/or comments.. and pick #6 would be by vote in blog comments or by a hater of the week possibly chosen by the readers. I have not figured out all of the details. Pick #6 could constitute at the most 30% of the entire bankroll. All picks would have to be on the site the bankroll exists. There are some interesting possibilities in pick six such as a HU match with the hater.......

Of course none of this will be any fun unless there is something on the line so it will have to wait until I get the roll back up to something reasonable.

Everything is hold 'em?

That's like choosing between vanilla and french vanilla.

Throw some HOE or Badugi in there.
