It was never told to me in confidence. He posts elsewhere on the Internet as Kevin Lewis, which I assume is his real name.

On flipside, Jerry Logan's real name was Rob Singer.

Rob Singer's real name isn't Rob Singer.

I was never 100% sure Logan was Singer. I turned down the chance to meet him (Logan that is) in Vancouver when he claimed he was visiting. Wasn't worth my time and energy.

Wow! Are we allowed to post a member's real name?



I'm not sure how long ago this was, but generally speaking, any information that a Member makes public (with exception to using it as a personal attack) could probably be repeated with impunity. If called upon, (which I am not doing in this case) then one may have to prove that the member freely and voluntarily disseminated (i.e. posted) that information, though.

For example, I acknowledged my first name and last initial in another thread when I was quoted in a gambling article, so given that acknowledgement, if anyone wanted to say that Mission146 is a guy named Pierce from Ohio, then that would be fine. (Acknowledgement + Profile says I live in Ohio)

all forums should have a strict anti-doxxing policy, whether the member is active, dormant, banned, or otherwise.

I didn't doxx. I read Jean Scott's blog and he posts there as "K____ L____" (redacted) with the exact same video poker stuff that he posted here. Combine that with the reviews written as "K____ L." (redacted) for the Wizard's site in his own writing style and the "mkl" initials it was hard not to put 2+2 together. That said, I respect anonymity so if the moderators want to go back and delete those reference that's fine. It may have been in poor judgment to post his name, but his anonymity was never really that hidden.

I thought that was QUITE boring actually. I can summarize it.... I'm mkl. I'm very smart. I understand math and odds. I'm Jerry Logan. I can win playing video poker using 'special plays'. No you can't. Yes I can. No you can't Yes I can. You are an idiot. No, you are an idiot. Etc.... there was little else in there, actually.



Hmm? I thought Jerry Logan's shtick was that he thought no one could beat video poker, because of the narrow edges, high variance, and complicated strategies, and went off on anyone who claimed otherwise.
The trick to poker is learning not to beat yourself up for your mistakes too much, and certainly not too little, but just the right amount.

He thinks that it's not possible/worth it to beat VP in the long term. But with Rob Singer's special magic methods, it's possible to win in the short-term every time forever.
