I may be in the wrong forum, but here it goes.
Some of my co-workers have a small home poker games every other Saturday. The stakes aren’t very high, someone may lose up to $40 or win $40 or $50 bucks. Since, the there is a $0.50 bet limit, there isn’t much bluffing.
Since I work on Saturday nights (I am at work right now), I go over and play for about an hour on my dinner break. Every time I have played this year, I have won some money. (tonight, I made a $28 profit.) The other players will play for about 8 to 10 hours. Needless to say, they are starting to get mad at me. I win their money and have to leave. That led to this debate.
On on hand, by playing more hands, (playing 8 to 10 hours) I have a better chance of catching good cards throughout the night.
Or by playing an hour, I don’t have time to catch a lot of bad hands.
Or does it matter how long I play. The cards are random at every deal?
I hope this makes sense. Thanks
