  1. It may be you tried to "improve" your play and are doing something not as profitable added to the fact you are thinking about the losses. o.0
  2. "If there are any procedural changes that we need to make, then we'll be sure to address those." Like a sign in the Blackjack dealer's break room that reads, 'Don't date Crazies'
  3. wtg for making your opponent think you were weak while building a pot?
  4. Against 2 opponents drawing to a naked low, you are making one bet to win one bet. What are you going to do if there is a raising war? What are you going to do if you catch bad or one of your opponents fold? If you are heads up, you are throwing money into the pot to win the money that was in the pot before before it was heads up. Drawing to naked lows with little chance of making highs is loosing eights-or-better poker. You are always lookng to scoop and are much better off drawing to hands that can (lows never scoop unless you also hit a high, highs can on their own). When you don't scoop wi
  5. That is true. People with rational beliefs usually do not enter into those kinds of debates. Both these people had an agenda, Sam Harris was selling his book and Rick was selling Jesus. You are seeing it one sided. It is impossible to prove or disprove God through reason so they use example to prove their point. In this article, for example, Sam Harris said Zeus and other Gods were not real; therefore, the Christian God is not real. Rick Warren said that prayers were answered therefore, God does exist. One side isn't using fact and the other is not. Both side use suppositions based on their ow
  6. I'll shorten and compare.With KKYou are about 80% against an under pair.You are about 80% against two undercards.You are about 95% against K-x not a Ace.You are about 70% against A-XAnd you are a 20% dog against AA.There is 1$-sb + 2$-bb + 5$-straddle + 5$-limper + 35$raise + 35$call(not adding reraise yet) = 83$ in the potIt will cost you 65$ to call to win [65(raise) +83(pot) = 148$] That is a bit less then 5:2 on your money.Let's just say you move all in and he calls so if you loose, you will be down 250$ and if you win you will make 263$ so almost even money.To make it a profitable lay dow
  7. Well, that is due to the subject matter, not because of the Christian arguing. God is an abstract concept that can only be described philosophically. Atheism is also only an abstract philosophical concept. If you believe in God or no-God it takes Faith to stick by your conclusion. Atheists can be just as passionate about their convictions as the Religious. A true Atheist is just a skeptic, not someone who has come to their own conclusion and make martyrs out of people doing no harm, no matter what is truth.
  8. Here is the reference--What would Jesus say?Matthew 531 "It has been said, `Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.'32 But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery.Adultry is ground for divorceWhat would God say?1 Corinthians 710 To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband.11 But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not
  9. I have a great idea for a news story. Let's have one guy who believes something that millions of people believe and another guy who believes something millions of people believe and put them in a room together. They are on opposites sides of an issue that everyone cares about but it is impossible to come to a resolution through open debate. Ready? Set? Go!
  10. I've heard that argument before in Christianity. The thought process is "I want", "I need", "I deserve", is contrary to how a Christian should think. Selfless instead of Self-Esteem, It sounds like that book is singling out woman and saying it in a crude, abrasive way. One of those things in the list is actually a precept of the Church of Satan. What stands out is: Lie #12: "I should not have to live with unfilled longings." Fulfilling your desires as you have themBut these leave me at a loss…Lie #26: "Sometimes divorce is a better than staying in a bad marriage."Lie #20: "A career outside the
  11. I'm not saying that a person isn't likely to be a certain way because of their genes. Just that all genetics does in those cases is lay the spread. The teams determine the outcome. Blaming the spread as the reason you lost the game is pretty ghey.
  12. Moneymaker? You trying to be funny?TJ Cloutier has 6 braclets and 130 cashes in the WSOP (so says the worldseriersofpoker.com). Two second place finishes in the main event. Him > Me
  13. I never thought Carlos Mencia was funny. What I hate the most about the guy is his real name is Ned Mencia and from Honduras, and he makes racist jokes about Mexicans. If you make racist jokes that aren't funny, that kinda just means your racist. He is half mexican I guess. I'm sure I can think of more reasons why he should not be getting work but that is enough
  14. Saying homosexuality is genetic is like saying being shy, outgoing, funny, smart, a liar, a thief a murderer etc etc is genetic. They are all choices, mix of environment and genetic disposition. I would argue that it has more to do with environment but my examples are unpalatable. Even if I’m wrong given my data, whopty doo. People love easy answers to unanswerable questions.
