BLOG: Predestined By The Poker Gods

Tags: blog, blogger The Prince of Freerolls
Blog post published on 05 May 2014, written by The Prince of Freerolls.
To finish off my round of blogposts on Luck, and its effect on the game of Poker, I thought I'd try something a little different. I've researched what various game creators have done to try and create a ‘luckless' version of poker, all the while preserve what makes the game so great in the first place. The problem with many of these games, however, is that they become pale imitations of the[...]   Read more » Predestined By The Poker Gods

well if you remove luck in poker and playing against people of the same skill you will be at a stalemate against him but you will still lose money in rake. take for example Nl 50 heads up, I watch the matches against 2 good players or equally match players. Both will tends to draw and lose a stack on rake. Higher limit you can afford to play against better players !

The trouble is that poker has been analysed and broken down to an extent that it has become boring. People who are just getting into poker now know half of the basics already from TV or reading. There's nothing undiscovered about Hold'Em. That's why a lot of pro's are switching to other formats and have been for years. Pro's edge in holdem now is becoming less and less.
I can see a fairly rapid decline in the poker scene tbh. And making people hit flops and always have hands is pointless and redundant. What was a great game anyone could potentially win at has become a game which everyone is highly knowledgable about and therefore becoming dull and defunct.

The nice thing about poker is, that you can´t learn a universal best strategy, because for every strategy, there can be developed a counterstrategy.

Strategy is important but you have to also have two other elements on your side. The first, which should really be part of your strategy is a flexibility to adapt your strategy to the situation in which you may, from time to time, find yourself. The other element, which is totally out of your hands is LUCK.

only way to do this ( while maintaining fairness) is to build (select)a big population of hands where 3-4 players hit the flop ( atleast to predetermined strength) and then let those hands progress normally.
obviously it would introduce some bias and predictability in the game and make "skill " of pre- flop play less important

anyways if you want to play a game with more action, play omaha Shock y bother with so much trouble

This game sounds way too complicated for my liking and i would stick with the old adage of 'if it aint broke dont fix it'. Poker is a wonderful game and i do not see the need to tamper with it

I remember there was a poker platform that promiseed something similar, i mean the player that had the best hand preflop would keep the advantage but it was never put in practice.

If you think about it, it basically mean to alter the rng to preserve that advantage so i think no gambling commision could have allowed that.

Having a plan from the beginning is very very important.

Because if you don´t have a plan you can start making stupid decisions quite easily.
