I should mention that We also once got $500 credited
twice. Return it? Only if they notice. We are dealing
with offshore computer banks trying to ventilate your
pocketwebsite, and like love and war, there is no

and blood humans capable of reciprocating.
Now you see what drudgery the record keeping is? It
craves distraction through ranting tangents about
ethics under capitalism.
To explain what records to keep, we'll just go through
an example of a play log and describe each item. People
with websitekeeping experience may come up with a
better format and medium, but the following shows
what information needs to be included.
fact, it is wrong even to think of tournament decisions
in terms of expected value per se. The reason is illustrated
best by considering draws:
- In live poker, playing draws is a long-term proposition,
because the big pots you take once in a while exceed
the sum of your frequent smaller losses from missing.
And missing on one draw doesn't affect your prospects
of making money in the future. Whether you hit your
draws sooner or later, the net result is the same.
- Within a particular tournament, on the other hand,
there is no long term, because if you miss just once,
you could be eliminated, or so low on chips that coming
back is impossible. In this way, missing a draw in
a tournament can have a disproportionately negative
effect on your monetary results.
