Anyone following the alphaGo challenge? next match tomorrow 2-0 for the AI
it's really fascinating what they're accomplishing. 1 year ago they solved Atari games using self-learning AI with 'sight' being it's only input, and now GO. The founder even mentions in an interview that they might try Starcraft in the future. They recently announced that their next challenge is a 3D game..
Meh.. not as much volume as I hoped for. but this is only 3 weeks. Nice freeroll for Lemon, not making the 50k hands minimum because I forgot my token at home when visiting family. zzzz
Glad I can still win at this game, tho I must have been running good because I spew money like crazy sometimes. For some odd reason, I always tilt the most during the first 30-40min of my sessions. I suppose I'll play less talbes during the start of my sessions (from 12, to 9).. see if that helps.
One thing I noticed since I'm back is, seat scripters! seat scripters everywhere! It's alot tougher now to find open seats next to fish. I considered getting one myself, and even tried a few, but have yet to find a good one. Most are full of bugs, too slow, and OVERPRICED ($1000, or even a % of your expected winnings.......) Anyways.. I don't need one for now.
Poker goals for next month;
60k hands minimum (bumping the volume up every month)
Play less tables during the start of my sessions
Watch a few RIO videos / per week (recommendations anyone?)
Learn PLO when bored of my regular game
Tweak my HUD (this is what I have always used + Show Spoiler +
Haven't played serious poker in ~1.5 years. Since then I've been living off only ~$1300 /month, my roll's been getting smaller and smaller - especially since I recently moved to Montreal. I'm beginning to get worried! No college education, zero job experience! lawl.
Goals for this month;
Start at nl50 FR
70k hands minimum
Also, does anyone want to do a small prop bet every month, to keep eachother motivated. If we don't achieve a certain amount of hands every month, we pay the other guy $200, something small.. Because I have been finding it very difficult to sit down and play poker, I don't dislike the game.. I just become overwhelmed with anxiety when I try to play, maybe I'm afraid I'll fail.
When I was younger I remember always feeling passionate about something, whether it was starcraft, or poker.. I would always be on the lookout for something to invest most of my energy in. Whatever it was, there was always a sense of wonder about it. Now that i'm older, things feel more plain, and I find it difficult to feel excited and diligent like before.
I miss that feeling more than anything, and I despise growing old. I recently moved to Montreal to start doing mma, hoping to spark my passion . I'm also getting back into poker, because my funds are getting low!
Do you guys still feel passionate about things in your lives?
I know it's old, and quite of few of you prob already watched it
but I think it's a must watch for those of you who haven't
