The Problem with The Math of Holdem

The Problem with The Math of Holdem

I really do like Collin and Doug’s book The Math of Holdem.   I still haven’t finished it, but  that’s mostly cause I’m trying to read like 17 books at once and keep getting distracted.   But I do think it overlooked a very important, albeit recent, contribution to the world of mathematics and how it affects the poker world.   How can we poker players reasonably be expected to delve into the mysteries...

Why does the pig have to be you?

Why does the pig have to be you?

I do need to get off my butt and write up part 3 (or more) of my Vegas Vacation recap, but I’ve been swamped and haven’t had a chance.  I did feel the need to write something so I’m taking the opportunity to showcase a couple of incredibly nerdy things that I like and think you should too.   The first is obviously The Micros.  If you haven’t watched the series then stop right now, Taylor Caby would not approve.  Go fire up Youtube and...

Vegas Vacation – Part 2

Golfing with Team Moshman   When we last left our intrepid hero, he was getting ready for an o’dark thirty tee time with a few Team Moshman people.   Wednesday was the long day.  Started at 5:30am so we could make it to Angel Park Golf course with enough time to hit a few balls on the range and be ready for our 6:50am tee time.  Now in the weeks leading up to the trip I spent hours on Skype with HotJenny314 talking about golf and...

Vegas Vacation – Part 1

Vegas Vacation – Part 1

I don’t know if there are words in the English language that will help me fully articulate just how much fun this week here in Vegas has been, but I shall try anyway.   After arriving on Sunday and spending way too much time in lines to get my rental car, I was finally able to make the trek to where I was staying. Since it wasn’t too far from the Collin and Katie‘s we ended up going to lunch and then Katie and I went...

Good Luck Katie and I’m Headed to Vegas

Good Luck Katie and I’m Headed to Vegas

cross posted at teammoshman.com   ******   My friend Katie is playing in the WSOP No Limit Shootout today.   For those not familiar with it, the shootout consists of dividing everyone into tables of 9 or 10 (not sure which) playing down till there is one winner.  Then those winners combine into tables and play down to one winner.  It’s kinda like The Highlander in that they keep repeating the process till there is only...
