50% chance @Josh Kifer gets banned. Action anyone?Reported.

I'll take it!.... Wait....50% chance @Josh Kifer gets banned. Action anyone?

Since a 20 percent chance of winning (using real math) is actually 50/50 (using your math), I'll let you pick any suit you want and we'll cut for a card to see if you hit that suit (which, using real math, gives you a 25 percent chance of winning). Every time it's your suit, I'll give you $200. Every time you don't hit your suit, you give me $100. We'll go for a minimum of 200 cuts, but we can go as many times as you want after 200 cuts.

Do you think we'll see cut number 201?

you know he’s gonna draw a flush

About 50 times...I mean, about 100 times...it's 50/50....yeah, that's what I meant to say.

But I do know a guy who seriously believes this. Possibly the worst poker player I’ve ever met. When asked why he played some trash hand he says “it’s 50/50, either you win or lose.” With no irony.

He hosted a weekly one-table tourney for a year, and did not win for 50 straight sessions. Max 9 players, sometimes as few as six. Normally not a game I’d bother with, but it was like playing with overlay every week.

I tried to explain it to him once like this: Yes, you’re right that there are two possible outcomes, only one of which will happen. But the chances for each outcome happening is almost never exactly 50/50...

So I tried another approach.

“Actually, the chances of winning aren’t 50/50. Either you win, you lose... Or you chop.”

He did stop to reconsider for a moment then.

Decided that meant he only had a 33% chance of losing.

I wonder if he originated it or it's just one of those poker sayings that's been around forever. I heard this one a long time ago and still use it as an occasional joke at the tables, and I had no clue who Sailor Roberts was until I just looked him up.

This is pure gold, absolutely brilliant!! Made me think of Karl Pilkington!Decided that meant he only had a 33% chance of losing.

Lottery is 50/50. You either win or you lose. If I buy 2 tickets it should be 100% right?

And I raise you "Drawing dead pre-flop with Aces."

Well he's been dead for 25 years so maybe that's your problem...

Um, no. Do you even math, bro?

A) Probability I get hit by lighting and don't win the lottery = .5

B) Probability I get hit by lighting and win the lottery = .5

C) Probability I don't get hit by lighting and don't win the lottery = .5

D) Probability I don't get hit by lighting and I win the lottery =.5

Or....probability you get hit by lightning on your left testicle at exactly 11:57:23 AM next Tuesday....... 50/50.
