This is laughable
So, I was just listening to the new epsiode of Cash Plays (link at the bottom), which for those that don't know is one of the many shows on the Poker Road website, and this weeks guest was Samoleus. Samoleus is a pretty well respected mid-high cash player, playing between $1k and $5kNL games. I don't even know where to begin with this, so I guess I'll just sum up what he said.
Basically Samoleus was saying that everyone (well not everyone, but most) but him uses "flawed" tactics, and the fact that he is making less this year than years past is no fault of his own. He was ragging on I guess what you call the "new school" of poker, meaning people that play very aggressively pre-flop with lots of 3 and 4 betting. He claimed this style closed the gap between the good and bad players and "simplified" the game. He says, verbatim, "It reduces the complexity of the decision making process" and "it's made it more of a gambling game and reduced the edge"
I don't even really want to get in to it any further here cause I could pick this apart for ages. I just can't believe how arrogant he comes off with the whole "Everyone else is wrong cause they don't play like I think they should play". I had a good laugh and thought most of the logic he used was very flawed.
