Defective Poker Calculator
Have you ever played live with a “Defective Poker Calculator”? That’s what you call someone who calls time to agonize over the number of outs they have, and then after two plus minutes of calculations as indicated by their lips silently counting away they make the completely wrong decision. I was playing 1/2 NL Holdem at the Venetian Friday with Miami Don. On the turn and with a flush draw on board, Don fires out $50 (about pot size) into a defective poker calculator. DPC in turn cranks the numbers through his lips and head for a couple minutes. He has $65 behind and I guess can just fold or push. He ends up with the push in for an extra $15 decision with his 9 outs once to the flush. Don calls and DPC stacks out. Well played Sir. After heading to the ATM I guess he comes back for some more mental gymnastics, but I was unable to put him to the test. I wish all live players had defective poker calculators, but from the looks of this weekend, only about 75% do at 1/2 NL.
