The problem with this system is that if someone KNOWS when they call a bet, they will win that game. Some players then BANK that game for later when they need some quick rating points. The same goes for a loss, WAIT till you can easily afford to lose a few points without to much damage. THEN call, :/

Bernal & Nichols :)

Well, I quite agree with Scott, the fairest test may be a 12 (or more) game advanced poker match.

2400 will be very hard to reach but with some optimization, it may be possible. But to stay over 2400 while finishing games that go wrong would be much much harder IMHO.

Your 2nd point is my exact point also.

My idea was just a heads up match between 2 players who both feel they are the best:) No ratings, no money, everything just stays the same. The reason I offer this is because I'm 99% mathematically sure with this rating system, reaching 2400 would be next to impossible with everyone so much lower rated.

On the other hand, all I have to do is win a dozen or so games quickly and there it is. I feel it is an unfair advantage to me.

One last caveat before we agree. If I reach 2225 or higher first, I will know in my mind it will just be a matter of time IMO. Then I will have to rescind my offer and let things go on as they are. Sorry if I am rambling...

You meant advanced poker, maybe... anyway, to be continued :)

Rules are very clear about defending (e.g. responding to provocation) Please follow the rules so that we can keep peace here. That's essential...

[provocating or insulting messages deleted]

Rules will apply from now, stricto sensu.

ANY skills I may have acquired during the all night poker or chess fests I played at during my youth, I would gladly give back in an instant to have that time back to spend with my family who are now gone. Sure I would like to make it to #1 here like anybody else, but I regard it for what it is--a harmless pastime.

And we'll see if Murphy's law applies ^^

The traffic on this is 10% of what it once was. Who knows why. The way it worked out in it's heyday is probably how it will stay. In my mind there is still questions, but as it stands there is a #1 & then the rest, :)

Well, now you're #2, where there's life, there's hope ^^
