I agree, not always the case. But in more than 9 times out of 10, it would be the case. And that is one reason that pros win. They know the odds. They know how to read the opponent. They can usually afford to gamble.
I guess I did teach you a little bit on how they play cards didn't I? And it is more like 7 out of 10. I also don't see where if a amateur and a pro set down and played 10 different buy ins (10 mini tournaments) how could the pro win more than 9 out of 10 with out winning all 10?

It is a good one too. The cards (variation) are dealt at random and the players (selection pressure) act nonrandomly based on skill level and experience.

But don't let me interrupt. If you want to go on a rant about rookie poker players sometimes winning big, by all means, please do so. We don't see going off on meaningless tangents enough on this forum.

I see another example of the unpredictable going off on a meaningless tangent while ignoring the point of the analogy. That poker analogy really stirs up the anti-evolution crowd.

Unfortunately, atheism is become the state religion in America. Just sit in any high school biology classroom and try to engage in an honest debate about evolution. My daughter was openly ridiculed and yelled at for questioning that man evolved from apes. This is not "science"... It is indoctrination. Public education has become a farce.
Good on the biology teacher!

I hope your daughter learnt a valuable lesson: that tbkse Creationist arguments only work when engaging other creationist loons. When engaging someone with actual knowledge about the subject matter, those silly arguments fall flat on its face. You see? The doctrine you teach your kids is a total embarassment.

Perhaps it is tine for you to ask yourself a question:"what if I am wrong about this?". If you are, which anybody with half an education can tell you, then you are making your children look like fools.

You reply with "That's because you have to be a total nut to question something which you know nothing about."
By that statement you support ridiculing children that have questions. That is sad.
An questioning something before you learn it is not curiosity nor a sign of sanity.

Still not to bright are you?

Obviously the number of tournaments would have to be higher than ten. Odds are neat that way. If you win 90 tournaments out of 100 you have won 9 out of 10, here is a new word for you "ratio". If you win 91 out of 100 or even 10 out of 11, you have won more than 9 out of 10.

When working with an average, we can use decimals.

For instance, should we do research and find out the chance of winning is 94.3%(just a number, not relevant to the topic discussed), then it is accurate to say that every ten games the pro wins more than 9 times out of ten, or 9.43 times out of ten

So if you play 10 games as I stated, how can you win more than 9 out of 10 without winning 10. Now if you took in several rounds of 10's yes you could use decimals. But I guess that was over your head huh?

No No! You said more than 9 out of 10. So as I said how can one win more than 9 out of 10 games without winning all 10? And now you want to add in another 100. LMAO change it all up as usual when you get proven an idiot.

That was my point. You would only know the ratio after a great many tournaments. It is possible to win more than 9 games out of 10 without scoring 10, ON AVERAGE

Your point is and was moot. As I stated and you replied to " I also don't see where if a amateur and a pro set down and played 10 different buy ins (10 mini tournaments) how could the pro win more than 9 out of 10 with out winning all 10?

What does that say,.,. oh yes it clearly says only 10 games/tournaments. So back to what I said how can you win more than 9 out of 10 games with out winning all 10?

Sigh.

The word is average. Average. Average.

The poster you replied to, meant it as an AVERAGE.

What is that word again? Average. Say it three times very quickly. It is supposed to almost rhyme with 'beverage'.

He meant it as expressing an average, not just ten games. Get it?

Let is see if you understand: let us assume they played 50 games, and the pro won 46 games out of 50.

What is his average?

Actually he said and I quote "But in more than 9 times out of 10, it would be the case" there is no speaking of more than 10 or an average. But I guess you are another one that thinks we should be able to read your mind and know what you meant when you can't word things right huh? LOL Whatever

"in more than 9 times outof 10" implies an average value, not once off. When we speak of per 5, 6 or 10, it is universally meant as an average.

Jeezus, even the poster himself explained that phrase to you. Go back a page.

No one know who John of Patma actually was and his visions were are discombobulated as Jimbo's science. There isn't any reason for Revelation to be included in the Bible except to flesh out the threats of eternal damnation and cataclysmic judgement in order to leverage more control over the Pagan converts and Catholic congregations. It's nothing but a monster under the bed.

Well here is the whole post "I agree, not always the case. But in more than 9 times out of 10, it would be the case. And that is one reason that pros win. They know the odds. They know how to read the opponent. They can usually afford to gamble."

So again I say where does he say more than 10 or an average. He doesn't. I guess as you all say he worded it poorly huh?

Replay also notices you are like SucTheBone. When you mess up you try to blame us and say we should no better so it is our fault. LMAO
