We Don’t Need Their Scum

or:   How I learned to stop worrying and love the bounty.             *****   This is actually a repost of a blog I made earlier this year that somehow got lost in the innerwebz during the transition to teammoshman.com.  Rather than just do a simple repost of the initial blog, I decided to try something a little different with it.   So, below is the original blog post as it was written (with a few minor corrections that were bugging me) and you can see my little experimentation by hitting play.   *****   I was browsing the TM forum the other day when I saw that someone had asked a question regarding the effect of the KO bounty in the KO SnG’s on Stars and if he needed to adjust his strategy when playing KO’s vs regular SnG’s.   I quickly replied that the short answer was yes.  The bounty for the KO gives stacks that cover you more incentive to call and thus they SHOULD be calling you...

The Problem with The Math of Holdem

By on Aug 11, 2011 in Featured, Poker, Team Moshman | 0 comments

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 of the poker world without a thorough understanding of this equation?     I expect to see an addendum in the second printing.   *********   Feel free to bounce over to teammoshman.com to leave comments on the cross...

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 how excited she was.  I later found out why.  She had NEVER played a full round before.   This was going to be fun.   Knocking the ball around at Angel Park   So the two of us, along with Simon and Louis headed over and teed off just before 7am.  As we were leaving the first tee, the group behind us had a player smoking a cigar.  Being the huge fan of smokey treats that I am, I ask what he was partaking.  Turns out it was a cigar from a local shop (the Las...

Good Luck Katie and I’m Headed to Vegas

By on Jun 8, 2011 in Featured, Poker, Team Moshman | 0 comments

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 one.   It started at 12pm pacific time.   I sent her a text message at 12:23pm, “Have you won yet?”   29 minutes later she replied back, “haha I have a leggy image”   I’m assuming it’s cause she showed up Cake Style, but I have no idea what that had to do with the bluff she “had to show down” on the 2nd hand.   Anyway, good luck Katie.   *****   I finally got everything set up over at Merge to start playing again and...

Game Over People

I didn’t have much luck last time Collin ran a competition.  It was back in the Stox days and the person that could best describe what was going on in the SNGWiz chart below won a video analysis from the man himself.     I, of course, knew exactly what the situation was and posted my response.   “Thank you for finding the pictures of the first time someone tried to teach me to snowboard.”     After a few other people attempted to answer Collin posted:  “Haha I’m tempted to end the contest today and give it to the snowboarding guy.”   He wasn’t tempted enough.       But this time I have done it.  I’ve got this one in the bag.   I did make a slight change to the title, but only because I feel that this helps open up the book to a demographic that wouldn’t normally be inclined to pick up a math book.   And, of course, once my submission is declared victorious, I will be adding the...
