Doesn't matter in terms of what though?
As in, what does it matter if there is a perfect strategy if no on else uses it.

Same as Blackjack, if every player in the casino that ever played BJ played the perfect mathematical strategy (which gives a payback % of something like 97% [depends on the rules casino is offering]), then I imagine the casinos would be less inclined to offer BJ games.

So if no one bothers using the perfect strategy, then the casino makes more money, same with poker, if I use perfect strategy and no one else bothers, I make more money. If every player played a perfect strategy, no one would win, only the house.

And ak-47, by STTs are we talking about sit and go's? I prefer cash games and multi table tournaments
Yep, STT = Single Table Tournament (SNG).

I've read some of your threads, I thought you might be interested in 'em since you seem to be having trouble building a bankroll... Just suggesting SNGs as an easy route to making a roll, so you can play/learn the games you wanna play at stakes that are more meaningful.

I prefer MTTs myself, more exciting, but as Kc said, STTs have less variance. Also they take hours and I need to take breaks regularly as I have the attention span of a goldfish lol.

that's really got nothing to do with the game he's playing, unfortunately.

Good luck with your 1 bullet. Even if you play perfectly, you can still lose.
Make sure you quit while you're ahead because at some point you will do something stupid and lose it all.

DARRYL.

Sup dude. I've been curious, what is your "day job?" With all the shit going down between hamas and israel, I've decided that even if i make 10/hr for the rest of my life with no friends or girlfriend, it's better than the majority of the world is doing. I dunno, the work is menial and monotonous, maybe swoop was right and all my family and friends were wrong that im just dumb and can never amount to anything meaningful or smart. Either way, I'm alive, have a place to live, a job, thats why im curious what u do considering ur americano as well yay

And you're absolutely right.
Like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ctiw1MjWvGQ

I've got no other plans though. The friends I used to have all regard me as a loser haha can't blame them. Nobody I know or knew played poker. I just love it what can I say. If I hit three to four hundred ima leave.

I was falling asleep at my desk and now im awake again thanks lel

I'm an evil scientist during the day. In one of my long discussions with KC I think I've described it more detail.

There's a funny Weird Al video about what you are talking about.
First World Problems:

I'm generally not one to recommend drugs to anyone, but I think you would really benefit from a dose of mushrooms. You would get a big sense of empathy and some of the poker stuff may sink in a little better. You would potentially have a better sense of why people at the poker table are doing what they are doing. I've read research that it also helps with addictions. I could see that, but I'd like to see more research on the topic.

then why did you study psychology?

not as bad a beat as you might think. the odds of this happening are about the same (2.2% vs 2.3%) as the chances of an opponent hitting a one outer on the river.

important difference is that here the players are chopping, whereas our one outer would lose the entire pot were it not for the capricious whimsy of sweet lady fuckyou and the rivermaids.
