I said in both of those threads that I was done posting in them. I always keep my word.

Thank you!

I'd suggest bringing up the topic of revenge at DT and I'll be happy to address it in a general sense.

Sounds like a plan.

I wouldn't be too against an outright ban on betting systems (though I think I might miss the laughs) and especially endorsements of cheating/welching, but I don't think it should be phrased as "respect the ten commandments," since other than that, the commandments are good advice, but don't seem worth handing out suspensions for going against.
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.

While I certainly favor the rules. I am a little weak on #9* when my combined H.A. is less than say 1.6% (roughly betting 6 or 8 in Craps).
Respect the bet, the "House" offering a fair game, the Rules of Play, and the money.

* I might bet $10 Pai Gow no commission (-1.25%) if I place a -4% $1 JP bet, for example.
Some people need to reimagine their thinking.

I was referring to recreational gamblers with commandment number 3.



I see. I thought maybe #3 was a follow-up to #2, the gambling debt commandment. Something along the lines that if you make a bet with Wizard.....you should expect to lose. LOL.

I'd be opposed to this as if you want to ban people for bad behavior you can just do it. Give a warning and tell them to move on. Leave room to disagree.

For example, I have disagreed with #7, "Thou Shalt Not Hedge" on here. This is simple background views as I have training in finance and locking in a gain when you can, and protecting your position. I wouldn't be a child about it, but I really don't want yet another thing to worry about in offending a rule.

I hedge my passline bet on the comeout with a craps/horn bet when betting $25 or more. And sometimes when betting less. I make side bets including the Fire Bet.

I'm not saying I would punish somebody for making a hedge bet, even for a bad reason. However, if somebody posted hundreds of times advocating always insuring a blackjack, I would get a little annoyed.

In fact, I hedged myself with my half point parlay cards last season when I had five-digit wins hanging on Monday Night Football. When very large sums are involved, looking it on a utility of money basis, hedging can be justified.
