    I am by no means an accomplished poker player, but as Kenny Rogers noted, "You have to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em." Every top poker player knows the odds against drawing a certain (needed) card given the current situation. More importantly, IMO, they're extremely good at reading other players while at the same time making it difficult for others to get an accurate read on them. Even if a player is dealt a royal flush, there is skill to betting so that the other players continue to make wagers. Who wants to win just the ante when holding the top hand (assuming no wildcards)?

    No dont call it a good shooter it may have been a good roll but not really skill of the shooter. There are plenty of good rolls that happen from people that are not what you would call a DI. They may have multiple good rolls that session. Then next session cant make a pass. So your logic is that if a good roll happens it proves DI to be real and a skill even if the shooter was a shake and chucker.

    There is definately skill involved in playing poker. Skill in being able to read people. Skill in knowing the correct size bets to make. The best hand doesnt always win. Plenty of times have the seen the best hand folded from a bluff.

    BUT ONLY IF THE PLAYER HOLDING THE WINNING HAND STAYS IN THE POT! The decision to play or fold is indeed one made during the betting rounds, but it determines the importance of the cards dealt, over which, I agree, the player has no control. Once a player folds that player cannot win the hand regardless of the cards he/she holds and would have been dealt. That was the point I was making with my post of the ST:TNG clip: Data had a better hand than Riker, but he lost because he thought he was lost.

    He better hope his poker bluffs are more convincing than his craps stories.

    I believe Mr Halls and the LID said last week "why shouldn't we believe Mr Halls craps skills and stories". However he said he misspoke and really should have said, " why should we believe Mr Halls craps skill and stories ". This confuse me very, very much.

    Thank you very much

    Good thing Justin doesn't read this forum. He'd be trying to triple parlay $6 buy in tournaments instead of betting his skill level.

    Tuesday there was a barge going down Wisconsin River to the Indian village on
    the fork of the Wisconsin and Baraboo. Very dangerous country.

    From time to time they trade beads, whiskey play some games and trap for fir.

    We took part for two hours and collected a good amount of fir and hooked
    a ride north on a freighter.

    It was not as you say the best longest trip of all, but we got enough fir to help
    us Winter here on The Wisconsin .

    I think the fir is worth more than our money so we will trade it for beans bacon and
    a pair of craps shoes, and such ....

    I hear next year there is a wagon train heading up from your area....maybe good
    trip for you.

    Yes, the IRS is also getting tougher on Line 28 of 1040 A; as the 2017 Tax Year is the very first year that they came back on me to "Provide Proof of Gambling Losses Equal to Gambling Wins" on Line # 28 of 1040 A.

    Probably doesn't know. I've heard many varieties grow wild in the cargo holds of some freighters.

    Midnight,

    Do those Wild Mushrooms affect ones CRAPS Throwing Abilities in any way, if so that's yet another Variable to consider.
