    First, I want to thank all of those who have asked really stupid questions lately, it gave me the courage to ask my own.
     
    Secondly, I have very limited math skills (3dr grade) and have difficulty reading people (I believe they are all out to get me).
     
    My question is:  Can any of you help my poker (Texas hold ‘em) game?
     
    Everyone’s virtual buddy,

    The only sure fire way I know of to come out of a poker game with a small fortune is to start the game with a large one……hope this helps clarify things….   :)

    ?? People actually still play holdem?  I figured that fad would have fizzled out like a bad fart by now.
    I mean I loved holdem until it became as saturated with amateurs as SS is.  Now I just play chutes and ladders.  Big money in it.  I just hope no celebrities take it up or they may televise it and ruin it. 
    Was that the help you were looking for?

    I was going to be a doctor, but those pesky sciences kept getting in the way….two things:
    1.  For your mathmatical shortcomings:  Probability is your friend…read a book….”Idiot’s Guide to Statisitics” should do the trick
    2.  For reading tells:  “If you can’t spot the sucker at the table, you’re it”….looks like you need to find you a table full of all-day lolly pops,  my friend.

    Stevo, my main man,
     
    My suggestion is that you outsource your gambling to someone who claims to have a good grasp of probabilities, combinations and permutations and has not smiled, laughed, or looked frightened, confident, or competent in many years and is absolutely fearless yet guardedly conservative in spending other’s money.
     
    Where can you find such an outsourced gambling operation?
     
    Vinny’s House of Craps, Cards and Associated Quality
     
    Please send your money to me and I will wisely gamble it away while keeping and providing detailed records and unique commentary.
     
    Your really virtual buddy,
     Vinny

    Ok, more info:
     
    Is stats or psychology more helpful?
     
    Any quick reference guide for the probabilities?
     
    Any one have a pareto on the most common “tells”.
     
    Why do I always play an inside straight hope?
     
    Stevo
     
    Ps, Vinny, will you spend my money on any other vices?
     
    Pss, Where would I find humorless math geeks? –  not the Isixsigma.com forum.

    Stevo,

    Certainly, unfortunately they are too numerous to list.

    I assure you that I am very geeky and quite stodgily and humorlessly at your service.  Honestly, I won’t enjoy taking your money one bit.  I’d simply perform a solemn math based service.

    Stevo:The quantitative finance guys are pretty good at combining game theory and probability to yield prices on options for contracts, etc. I’ve seen Monte Carlo simulations used to calculate odds of winning and evaluation of mixed strategies. The use of psychology is a part of game theory.Best site for these ‘math geeks’ is http://www.wilmot.com. Look in the forum for ‘off topic’ postings.Tutorials for hold’em on are at http://www.holdempoker.comnotBTnotDT

    Always interesting input.  
     
    Have you done much with game theory?   How and when?   Linked to applications of neoclassical economics a la Nash or more pure mathematics like John von Neumann’s stuff?
     
    What’s your background academic, applied or both?   You’re one of the few forum Meister’s that’s hard to get a read on beyond knowing your stuff.

    Vinny:Game theory as applied in to risk management. Started from the Wolfpack von Neumann side then over to Nash.Both academic and applied.Thanks for the compliment.BTDT
