    You can have any system you want and still lose. Luck does come into play. You still need the cards to be in your favor to win. But having a system like that does help you keep your loses at a min. or will tell you to walk off the table.

    Thats one of my disciplinary problems. I usually will fold anything in the first few hands if there are one or more of those types of players unless I have one of the first five hands from group 1. I have that thought embedded in my head that "it's just a freeroll".

    Its a great system and if you can find the time to learn it, you'll win almost every time you play. You may not make the millions the MIT group did, but you can turn 500 into 4000 on a given day. I try to keep my winnings under the 10k mark so the casino doesn't have to report it to the IRS.

    I saw that documentary, really good stuff. starting out, reading the cards, betting 50-100 bucks, then getting the nod, and start betting 500-1000 a hand, and hitting like 80%

    Sometimes I will fold the first three hands no matter what starting hand I get.

    Daddycool,
    I put "their money" in quotes. Yes, it is MY money when I win it. And the money that I lose is now SOMEONE ELSE'S money.
    My only point being that I only put in a certain amount into internet poker, and I am continuing to play off of that. I withdrew my original buy-in many times over, and I don't intend to draw money from my bank account ever again for internet poker. You have to admit that the process is a little different than when one takes a trip to the casino, where you bring a certain amount and come home with a certain amount -- the average player doesn't LEAVE WINNINGS in a casino's account for later use....

    That is one of the first things I learned and I totally agree. But isn't there a difference between a fish who thinks he has a strong hand but really doesn't and someone who constantly enters the freerolls to go all in on the first hand in hopes he accumulates double, triple, etc. everyone else's chip stack? Like I've said other times...I don't claim to be good, but I think there is a difference between playing tight with aggressive players at your table and playing tight with those asses who try and play winner take all the first few hands. I do really well in the freeroll/party point games and yes I attribute it to the fact I play tighter but I still think there is a major difference when you move to cash tournaments.

    Right, but its not "free money". Its still their money. I came to Vegas with 500 to gamble and I turned it into 4000. Now I have 3500 of "their" or "free money" money to spend. No. You are now going to spend 3500 of your OWN money. I just don't get it.

    It's the reason hookers are so expensive in Las Vegas:

    You've got the winners and the losers:

    The losers don't have money for hookers, so who cares?

    The winners are paying with "free money" so they don't care about overpaying.
