If i've seen you 5bet 50 times and you've ONLY shown down with AA, then its safe to say when you just 5bet me that you have AA and im dominated. This can happen in live just as easily if you're attentive to detail and have a good memory. So you wouldn't use that to your advantage? You'd rather just go in blind every hand and never have a range for villain? Flawed thinking...
how many hands would you have to see that i 5 bet aa 50 times..?
by using trackers and having access to other software and coaching and forums
poker has become too competitive to overcome the rake...especially in the usa..without most recreational players.
the bubble has burst on this pyramid...like the gold rush atmosphere...the small minority who get in on something early profit then the rest grind hard for crumbs
here's a possible idea ...make poker like a home game...rent the virtual table for a set fee and block of time...higher stakes equals lower rake %...off hours = cheaper rates...
a dedicated 2 or 4 or more hour ring tournament.(blinds stay the same thruout)..with some kind of penalty for quitting so there is no break up of the game..
sort of the opposite of rush poker...the challenge being to play and adapt to unknown players...
