A classic

This is a classic old rgp thread. It has an interesting poker question (badly phrased), Steve Badger, Mason Malmuth, David Sklansky, me, Andrew Prock, and many others.

One of the funniest lines is David telling Steve
You are incorrect. You meant what I wrote, not what you wrote.

Read the whole thread.

lol. I remember reading that thread at the time, wanting to hit Badger upside the head. Sklansky was much cooler when he could be bothered arguing.

It's one of the stupidest discussions ever. On one side, a troll. On the other, everyone else, who clearly get it that if you know that the raiser has AK it's profitable to play, and if you don't it isn't, but if you somehow make the mistake of calling, it might then be profitable. But only then if you correctly put raiser on AK and not an overpair.

What I don't see Badger addressing is how the "profit" he makes from playing against AK will ever make up for all the money he's losing against AA and so on.

I'm going to have to dig up a link to the old 44 thread. That one had Badger and Danny Boy on one side and me, Mason, Abdul, and Sklansky on the other.

If me, Mason, Sklansky, and Abdul agree about something poker related you can be pretty sure we're right.

I'll look for it. It's the one where Danny Boy first challanged me to a duel in the school yard.
