why do so many people play ace rag 7 or lower and win on a a regular bases.It is getting really hard to keep comming back to play here its depressing.The last 2 sessions i played there was 17 hands that were like that that lost to decent starting hands accorrding to your courses its getting really pathetic.All of these shoves were preflop way way way 2 much lotto really sucks.

Hi dwnhnder!

Welcome to the forum. Here's a link that will help to get you more familiar with many of the items that PSO has to offer.

The ace/raggers are perfectly welcome at my cash tables or tournaments and I make notes on the players that play them. What I want to do against them is to basically assume that they end up with 2 pair (aces and rags). I do not want to over-value one pair hands against them... if I do, then I'll get beat. Once I can beat their ace/rag, then I'll make value bet after value bet... until they're out of the tourney. The key here is that I need to bet enough that the opp will have a -EV draw to try to beat me.
These are the types of players that you can make a ton of chips off of, so you want them at your table.

Good luck at the tables.

There is not enough information given to offer a suitable answer. Variance is an ugly creature that strikes on a whim. But, the human mind being what it is, the bad is remembered longer than the good. Two sessions is not a statistically valid sample size. It takes thousands of hands before such comparisons are realistic.

Good Decisions are what you are after. The results of a small group of hands is totally irrelevant.

It all depends on how many billion. If you're talking in terms of a measly couple a billion then of course not. It's possible that 50 - 250 billion would suffice. Go for the trillions just to be safe

With all discussion about A/\x this is good topic, as in High/Low id

hands), then there's the Bermuda Triangle∆(what u should be going

for({∆})1*3 (52 pickup lol,),as this movesѪ)higher hands but not same ∑Ξ (theoretically High/low

hands should be polerised)

what are the odd's of this happening? 50/50 or 1/1? dont worry im drunk
hiccup rule #2 listen or not, i dont know im just learning how to look/\ count

how many beers i've had 50/50 or 1/1?
