umm let's stay on topic, this isn't the "which sport is the most exciting" thread.

Live poker. You're about to join a game with people you've never played before, but your buddy has, and he knows all the reads on all the players and their tendencies. Do you not take his advice/information?
You're going to play the same live game tomorrow night, but you have a chance to watch them tonight to pick up some reads/tells etc. Do you not go and take a peek at the game for some information in advance?
If not, then what's the difference between the two situations above and a datamining program that makes you think that doing the former two are right and the latter is wrong?
