Jeopardy Champ a Student of Game Theory

Jeopardy/Game Theory Expert
Arthur Chu, a 30-year-old voice actor, won more than $100,000 in four appearances on the CBS game show Jeopardy.  Chu actively sought out Daily Double’s and abandoned conventional play by starting with the larger dollar values and working his way ‘up’ the board instead of the lowly $100 categories.  Some fans of the show were offended by his style while others praised his apparent understanding of Game Theory and concepts often employed in poker.  Here’s what this trivia whiz had to say about his approach:

“Back ion the day everybody kept their money.  It was like a cash game in poker. Once you’ve gotten enough money, why risk more money? Why make a big bet? If I know I’ve got $18,000 in the bank and someone’s like, “Hey, want to bet $8,000 that you know the answer to this question?” No. Why would I do that? Am I a gambling addict? Am I stupid?  In order to encourage big bets, Jeopardy! is now winner-take-all. Only the person in first place keeps their total at the end of the game. Everyone else gets the consolation prize. If you have $20,000 and someone else has $20,001, you get second prize, which is $2,000. If you are in third place and the two other players have $5 more than you, no matter how much money you have, you take home $1,000. There’s a very powerful incentive to be aggressive. You really do need to make sure you win the game. The most important thing isn’t the absolute number of dollars you have on the board. It’s how strongly you’re beating the other players. How far ahead are you? What’s the spread?”

“Sports betting is all about money management, so the most money won on one event is not the most important thing.”
— Bruce Dern


Philip Gruissem
Young German Pro won $4.5 million in 2013 and here he talks about one of his main motivations of late – CHARITY:

“After I had player poker nonstop for four or five years I got the point where my motivation got lost and it got boring. I thought, ‘Why am I doing this? I have a little bit of money in the bank, but why else am I doing this?’ That sucks. So I was thinking about what to do and I decided that I should try to be an effective altruist, somebody who thinks how he can help other people most effectively. I came to the conclusion that the thing I could do best right now is playing poker, that’s my skill. So if I give a 10 percent piece of my earnings to charity, the better I play the more money I can make and the more impact I can have. So that is a big motivation for me, when playing poker isn’t always fun, I get back on track and stay motivated through that.”
– Q&A w/ Card Player magazine

“The one who bets the most wins. Cards just break ties.”
– Sammy Farha

“If an opponent won’t watch you bet, then you probably shouldn’t.”
– Mike Caro
The Mad Genius of Poker

“Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get.”
– Ray Kroc

“A funny thing happens when you shoot for the moon, you get there!”
– Cadillac, new commercial.

“In the game of life, the house edge is called time. In whatever we do, nature charges us for doing it in the currency of time. So we must take advantage of every moment. Every moment in life is so very precious.  You only get a fling at life for a while, then the house collects. We must get all our thrills and all our experiences while we have the opportunity. We have to go for it now! And only by taking advantage of time in this way can we get the best of it – win or lose.”
– Bob Stupak

Online War Wages On, Cops Raid a Seniors Game

Hey High Rollers, this week an online poker battle between one side, which badly wants it legalized, and the another, namely Sheldon Adelson, which doesn’t.  This is a war folks.  Plus…the authorities shut down a penny game at a seniors centre. Really?

<New Parlay Odds at BetOnline>

Online Poker Battle!

MGM & AGA back a new coalition designed to fight Sheldon Adelson anti-online gaming talks. Here’s a quote:

“This new entity is dedicated to creating a regulated Internet gaming marketplace and preventing a federal ban of online gaming. The coalition will operate exclusively at the federal level, encouraging Congress to embrace regulation as the best means to protect minors, detect money launderers and eliminate a dangerous black market.” – said AGA CEO Geoff Freeman.

Go get ’em guys!

Sheldon Adelson is on record suggesting he’ll spend whatever it takes to prevent the legalization of online poker. Well, a new coalition backed by the AGA and MGM has been formed to fight Adelson:

“A move to make all Internet gaming illegal is absurd on its face! That would remove all law enforcement oversight and permit the unregulated black market operators the ability to grow.”
– MGM Resorts Senior Vice President Alan Feldman.

Lori Tells… w/ Lori Kolstad, regarding Sheldon Adelson and his bid to fight online gaming:

“Yes, hard work of the Poker Players Alliance, poker players, and those that want to retain their freedom to choose what they do in their homes are being heard!! Sheldon Adelson, the donkey with the largest stack in the room, and we know what happens to donkeys? They rarely leave with any chips!”

Are you kidding me?

Washington shuts down a pennie card game…come’on man. ESPN The game’s been going on for 25 years at a seniors centre…here’s what one of the players said following the raid: (hilarious)

“If you gave them an IQ test, the needle wouldn’t move.”

Here’s what another one said: “We should turn the card rooms into grow rooms for marijuana. Then we would be legal and make some money. Maybe we could have free lunch!”

What is going on here?

Giving the Word FLUSH New Meaning

Hey High Rollers, have the patio door open enjoying the beautiful Southern California weather, and woking on the website.  Good news, two new sponsors have joined the fold and the NATION is growing, with 4 new members.  Found this interesting story on CNN this morning…a new meaning to the word – FLUSH!

<New Parlay Odds at BetOnline>

Talk about a FLUSH!

We’ve all heard the saying, “Throwing money down the drain,” One poker player gave new meaning to the saying “throwing money down the drain.” something I secretly say ager each crying call.  You been there?

Well,  Christian Lusardi, 42, of Fayetteville, North Carolina, flushed…literally flushed,  $2.7 million down the drain…2.7 million in counterfeit chips he was apparently using during the Borgata’s Winter Poker Open Big Stack No Limit Hold’em event.  Tournament officials became suspicious and found 160 fake poker chips, each worth $5000, for a stack of $800 grand…Lusardi flushed the chips down the toilet in a room at Harrah’s in Atlantic City.  Cops found them in clogged sewer pipes…the 42 year old was arrested…the tournament was suspended for 24 hours and eventually cancelled.

“A very unusual occurrence,” says Joe Lupo, senior VP of Operation at Borgata, “The first time in Borgata’s 10 years, anything like this has happened.” he adds.

Strange indeed, proving again, you just never know what you’re gonna find in the world of Gambling.

Lori Tells, UFC Fight Night, Draw Winners, Quote of the Day and more…

Hey High Rollers, apologies for not posting in a while. I have been enjoying the sunshine in beautiful sunny Southern California, visiting my sister and playing cards at the legendary Commerce Casino. Stayed 8 nights, 5 and 3, and won big the first go around, lost big the next. That’s poker as they say. Disappointed because admittedly I did play poorly on my second visit.

“Lori Tells…” on Bad Dealers

She’s back folks…our favorite gal from Biloxi, Mississippi, Lori Kolstad.

“Lori Tells…” on High Roller Radio:

Responding to a recent experience I wrote about, regarding players bad attitudes toward dealers, ‘Blaming’ them for their misfortune. Lori writes:

Lori wrote: “This is a pet peeve of mine, Derrick! Most of the closest people in my circle of friends work in the casino industry, and it makes me LIVID when players do this! I try very hard not to react with the same bad attitude they have, but I wear em down from thatmoment on with bets and table talk meant to make them uncomfortable…eventually, you catch a hand where they pay you off and you can then berate them about how badly they playesd the hand “

She’s the best folks. Lori Kolstad on High Roller Radio.

The FedEx Gamble

www.highrollerradio.net

Frederick W. Smith, Founder of FedEx wagered it all at the blackjack table and saved the company.

It’s one of the biggest brands in the world but it wouldn’t be if not for the risky play of its founder and CEO.  More than 40 years ago, 1971, Frederick W. Smith, invested his own fortune, somewhere in the area of $4 million, and an additional $90 million in capital to start an unknown delivery company designed to change to world by allowing people and businesses to ship overnight anywhere in the world.  At the time, it was a unique service that nobody else was offering, a grand idea.  Just three years in the business was in trouble – a lot of trouble.  Rising fuel costs put the company on the brink of bankruptcy.  Losses amounted to more than $1 million a month.  At its lowest, FedEx had a measly $5,000 in the bank account, not nearly enough to fuel the planes come the new work week Monday, so Smith, in desperation cancelled his usual flight home to Memphis and, instead, jetted off to Las Vegas and too the company’s entire bankroll along for the ride.  Talk about a gamble!  Smith, silently and discreetly, headed to the blackjack tables in an effort, a last ditch, perhaps crazy bid, to not only beat the house but save the company in the process. The Gambling Gods must have needed overnight service because by Monday morning the company bank account indicated FedEx had 32-grand sitting there, just enough to gas the planes and keep the entire operation afloat for a few more days.  BY 1976, the company showed its first profit, $3.6 million, and just four years later it made $40 million.  Today, FedEx is reportedly worth between $25 and $35 billion.  When his own management asked what he was thinking, risking company funds to play blackjack, Smith replied, “it didn’t make a difference because without the money for fuel for the planes the company couldn’t have flown anyway.”

It’s a small risk considering the whopping, long-term, payoff.  You gotta take a shot baby!

Bad Beat story on this fine Monday:

High Roller NATION has $100 on Cowboys to cover 6-and-a-half…looking good at half with a 23 point lead….come out and run the ball right? Kill some time? Nope. Two or three three and outs….and all of a sudden the GREEN BAY QB looks like Joe Montana…and the Cowboys defence looks like Alan Bester (the old leafs goalie – a ‘Sieve’) Come’on MAN!!!!

ATTENTION High Rollers:

Live Mis-Click

Playing electronic poker at OLG London on Thursday, with $560 in front of me, was faced with a raise on a flop of 2, 6, 8, and holding the 4,5 in the big blind….love double gutter’s…there was 20 bucks in the pot pre-flop…I led out for $14 and got two callers before a guy jacked it up to $80….In electronic poker you have 45 seconds to act….I gave him a sweat and with time running out went… to hit ‘FOLD’ and ‘CONFIRM’…but accidentally hit ‘ALL-IN’ and before I realized it hit ‘CONFIRM’….yikes. Thank-fully for me, my time ran out and my cards were automatically folded. Could have been a huge blunder. I asked the guy…’Would you have called my all-in?” “yes,” he said, “I hit everything on that flop, top pair and nut flush draw. Now, he did get a caller and the turn completed my straight (a 7) but it was a club and gave the raiser the nuts.

Talk about a LIVE mis-click. Thank goodness I didn’t have 46 seconds.

Alright, I want to read you a few quotes…”I’m not a prodigy, I just work at every poker hand.” Phil Ivey.  “Put yourself in a position to get lucky.”  Tom McEvoy, the 1983 world champ and former guest of this show.  “Patience is the companion of wisdom.”  Saint Augustine.  And, “No Limit Hold’em is 70% psychological, 20% mathematical and 10% magical,” that quote comes to us from our guest today, author of a fantastic new book called Poker Samadhi, designed to help you reach a new level of consciousness at the poker table….its all about divine energy and spirit baby.  She’s the founder and chief guru of Poker Samadhi, located in Las Vegas Nevada….Danielle Striker our guest today…Danielle, good to have you, thanks for being a High Roller…

Thank-you so much for the book…I just love it, keep it at my bedside.  Now,  I know a little bit about your story, a New Yorker, a Broadway dancer, motorcycle nut and now poker crazy…you had a very serious motorbike accident, can you tells us about that…

You write, “and then I had an epiphany, I realized the game of poker was a symbolic representation of life.  The way people play poker and live their lives are the same.”  I love that line…can you elaborate for us?  

Poker Samadhi, it’s a way of life for you isn’t it?

In the dedication, you say that your dad taught you that “You are where your attention is.”  That’s dynamite stuff. 

I listened to a Phil Hellmuth interview years ago, where he said its absolutely vital to be in the right head-space when you play…citing an example of How an alcoholic, deep down, may feel like he/or/she deserves to lose and therefore does…poker players put in crazy hours…crazy things happen, you make take a bad beat, the guy beside you may smell bad, talk too much…and you’re playing for cash, in some cases for a living and you need to keep your head right?  you need to think straight..with so many variables that can be tough?

70% psychological, 20% mathematical, and 10 per cent magical?

You have a close relationship with former guest of the show Tom McEvoy, world champion, author, very impressive man…how did that relationship develop?
What has he taught you about the game of poker…aside from basic strategy…the life part of it?

You guys have some big plans in 2004?

What are some common mistakes you think people make at the poker table because they’re not fully in tune with themselves…bankroll management, I assume is one of them?

In the book, you have quoted some of the games very best, some of them legends..Stu Ungar, show me a good loser and i’ll show you a loser…what was the process in selecting these quotes, was there a criteria?

The interview is slated for later today…stay tuned, Danielle Striker, a good friend of the show, on HRR>

Jack McClelland, Vadim Trincher, Quote of Night, UFC 33, Greatest Fight in History?

 

Tribute to Jack McClelland:
After five decades as one of the world’s preeminent tournament directors, Jack McClelland, on December 6th, 2013, called it a career.  And what a career it was!  He first earned the TD title in 1984, at the Worl…d Series of Poker. He went on to run the Grand Prix of Poker at the Golden Nugget Casino.  McClelland was the first tournament director to host events at Commerce Casino in Southern California.  His resume includes international poker tournament in locales like the Isle of Man, St. Petersburg, Russia, Vienna, Cyprus and Aruba. For the past decade, McClelland has been running the tournaments at Bellagio, where he helped launch some of the earliest events on the World Poker Tour. He was there, at the helm, for the very first event of the WPT, in May of 2002.  His last event?  The 2013 WPT Five Diamond Doyle Brunson World Poker Classic.
Shuffle up and retire, right?

High Roller Radio Quote of the Night:

My grandmother taught me how to play, starting with two-cent ante, nickel-limit seven-card stud. I was kept broke until I was ten years old because I couldn’t throw a hand away (laughs). But I learned a lot about math playing poker.
– Jack McClelland

High Roller Radio Quote of the Day:

“When I was a kid, I thought that’s what big people did — you throw dice against the wall. That’s the way I was raised forever,” Bob Stupak said in the must-have biography by John Smith, No Limit: The Rise and Fall of Bob Stupak and Las Vegas’ Stratosphere Tower, referring to his parents to ran numbers and spread dice games.

StarCraft like drug addiction?

Some state officials in South Korea think play on computer games such as “StarCraft” — now in its second edition — has gotten so out of control that being obsessed with it should be classified as an illness, along with gambling and drug addictions.  What do you think?

WPT Star in Trouble

Legal troubles for World Poker Tour champion Vadim Trincher, whose admitted to being involved with an illegal sports betting operation that catered to wealthy bettors in the U.S. and Europe. Trincher’s business typically dealt with soccer matches.   He coul have spent decades in prison but thanks to a plea deal had that reduced to between 21 to 27 months in prison.  Trincher is 52 years old.

Did you know?  Lindsay Lohan has reportedly angered casino officials in Connecticut.  Management at Foxwoods not happy after paying the pop culture star a ridiculous $50,000 to judge a costume contest on Halloween.  She was supposed to be there at 10 p.m. and didn’t show until after midnight.  Lohan also skipped the red carpet festivities.  Foxwoods also paid Floyd Mayweather to be a judge and the boxing star was perfectly punctual.

UFC Fight Night 33

Spectacular night of fights in Australia, in particular the ehabvyweight clash between Antonio ‘BigFoot’ Silva and Marc Hunt!  Sick fight, a 5 round war for the ages, perhaps the greatest ther sport has ever seen.  It was a unanimous draw with one judge scoring it 48-47 for Hunt, and the other two having it tied at 47-47…wow.  They were both overjoyed with the outcome and Dana White rewarded them with ‘Fight of the Night’ honors and gave both their win bonuses.  Nicely done boys.

Chris De Beer – “Absolutely amazing fight! Undoubtedly the greatest heavyweight fight of all time – we have been treated to some classics the last few months.”

Johnny Moss, Legend of the Game. Plus – GSP Wins?

Legend of the Game
Johnny Moss On January 25, 1971, a feature article, written by Edwin Shrake, on 3-time world champion Johnny Moss, appeared in Sports Illustrated.  The lengthy piece helped to shape the Johnny Moss legend.  In the articl…e, Moss told Shrake the games he found himself in, back in those days, were absolutely insane: “If you played a week you could win a million dollars, win it in a night if it shaped up right,” Johnny Moss recalls. “There were games, like at the old Metropolitan Hotel in Fort Worth, that nobody would believe the sums involved if I told you today. You got to be a good gambler, anyhow, to get rich in the oil business. Some of them players came out worth $40 million, what with poker and dice and oil leases and whatnot. Money didn’t mean nothing to them, but gambling did. Some of them big old-time oilmen still play in big poker games, but only for the pleasure of stepping on a professional gambler if they can. I like to see them come around.”

UFC 16-sham?  St.Pierre beats Hendricks according to judges only, wow!

Georges St-Pierre continues to rewrite the UFC record book:

His win over Johny Hendricks was a record 19th in the UFC for St-Pierre, moving him past Hall of Famer Matt Hughes at 18. It also extended his string of victories to 12, the longest current run in the UFC.  St-Pierre has not lost since his first title defence in April 7, 2007, when 10-1 underdog Matt (The Terror) Serra knocked him out three minutes 25 seconds into the first round at UFC 69 in Houston. Three fights later, at UFC 83 in April 2008, St-Pierre avenged the loss and won his title back.  The victory moved GSP past former middleweight champion Anderson Silva for most wins in UFC title bouts at 12.  Saturday’s win was GSP’s ninth successful title defence and ninth straight title defence, one behind Silva in each category. And it was his 14th championship fight, one behind Randy Travis Couture.

GSP’s a High Roller!
