[#Thread] Mesdames et messieurs, devant vos yeux ébahis (musique de cirque), nous allons aborder le thème :

Comment gagner de l'#argent avec les #cryptomonnaies

Thread à déguster très frais accompagné d'une coupe de Dom Pérignon bien assis dans votre fauteuil préféré. ⬇️
Avant de commencer, sachez qu'il n'existe pas de méthode miracle et chaque #investissement vous demandera du #temps ou de l'#argent.

Certaines méthodes vous permettront de gagner de l'argent de façon passive, d’autres demanderont un peu de travail et certaines compétences.
Ensuite, mon but est de simplement "donner des pistes" au travers de ce #thread.

Les caractères étant limités, des exemples ainsi que d'avantages d'#explications seront disponibles sur l'#article complet en fin d'article sur @AuCoinduBloc.

Learning to play Kuhn Poker with Monte Carlo Counterfactual Regret Minimization (MC-CFR) in #python

📝 Code/Tutorial: nn.labml.ai/cfr/index.html

This isn't deep learning. But it'll be interesting if you do machine learning, like incomplete information games or play #poker.

🧵👇
2/8) Kuhn Poker is a simple 2-player betting game with three cards (A, K, Q). A single card is dealt to each player. Players take turns betting chips and the player with the higher card wins the chips. If a player folds the other player wins the chips.

👇
3/8) CFR finds the Nash equilibrium with self-play. In each iteration, it calculates the regret of following the current strategy instead of playing each action. Then it updates the strategy with regret matching:

strategy = regret of action/total regret of all actions

I am walking around freezing NYC, thinking about my departure to Miami next week, and it suddenly hits me...the retail trading boom everyone is talking about is something i've seen before.

I was once the "teenage gambler" who "didn't have a clue".

A quick story...

1/n
Many might not be aware but 2004-2011 was the golden age of poker, driven by the boom of online platforms like SportingBet, PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and others.

Similar to trading, the ease of these poker platforms democratised the game and spread it internationally...

The World Series (WSOP) transformed from a bunch of sweaty guys (yes, mostly guys) trapped in a window-less casino into Burning man - desired by many, but only a few got to experience it.

Chess is booming as a result of @netflix's brilliant 'The Queen's Gambit'.

Now the #poker world is crying out for its own film/TV show to bring wider interest to the game.

Here are 5 true-life poker plot lines (& the ideal casts) that we should see onscreen.

A thread👇👇👇
1) 'TEXAS DOLLY'

Whether it's a 3hr movie directed by Martin Scorcese or an 8hr Netflix series, it would be incredible to see the story of @TexDolly--from NBA-ready college athlete to road gambler to the Godfather of poker--on screen.

What do you reckon, @briankoppelman? 👇
2) Synopsis:

In the early 50s, a devastating leg injury crushes the NBA dreams of prodigious college athlete Doyle Brunson. He turns to illegal poker games to fuel his competitiveness and soon finds himself on the road with a crew of Texan card sharks. Over the next 60 years...

Here's the story of a teenager forced to drop out of uni for medical reasons, whose dad then introduced him to #poker mixed games.

Today he's one of the greatest mixed game players of the modern era with 3 WSOP bracelets, 7 COOP titles, & millions in cashes.

Thread time👇👇👇
1) Benny Glaser left his family home in Southampton to study product design at university when he was 18.

He discovered poker with friends and joined the university pub poker league.

“My housemates had a poker league too,” he says.

But his studies were sadly cut short.
2) Benny Glaser was forced to drop out of uni for medical reasons, but he took his love of poker back home with him.

"When I got back, I started playing both No Limit Hold'em and Limit Hold'em online," he says.

He began taking the game pretty seriously.

Then one day...

A thread of learnings from poker for startups/founders/businesses in general:
1. Find a table where you can win/Play where you can win - Compete in markets where you can win. The aim is winning not winning against someone specific
#poker #startups
2. Milk a good hand/Ride the wave - If you find yourself in the right place at the right time, ride it. That is the part of the luck which you need to maximize. Be nimble footed, be opportunistic. #poker #startups
3. Know when to fold/Pot Control/Minimize risk - If you find yourself in the middle of an adverse situation or a hypothesis which seems to be failing - put the brakes om, slow down, revaluate and decide #poker #startups

I have been asked how this would work. I welcome you to join me on a journey how #cashless #casino's could operate in 2020. I'll explain it based on the example of "Awesome Casino Vegas" or "ACV" which I made up for this example.

This is the exciting future in a thread... (1/x)
ACV is a #casino in #vegas and needs to go cashless. They choose to issue a stable #token on the #CSCL. $1= 1ACVT. They have their own branded #whitelabel version of the #casinocoin #BrankrollManager. Their customers can purchase #tokens at a cash cage... (2/x)
...or via #debit/#credit (and #crypto 😉) via the wallet. Customers get #KYC'ed on the fly when onboarding during the wallet setup. All transactions can be pinned down to an individual. They know exactly who is who and who did what and when. (3/x)

First time streaming a big poker tourney on my new combined chess AND poker channel on twitch.tv/jenshahade and I won it! ❤️#PASCOOP #PokerStarsPA #chess #poker
A few minutes later I choked vs. my evil brother in a totally winning bullet game on stream. He can't let me be happy for even one hour!!! @GregShahade 😡
I was too engrossed in the final table to play chess, so we were watching top games on @chesscom , mostly Hans Niemann vs @GmNaroditsky and then later @GregShahade!

That is why the analysis bar is showing :)

On a poker table the day before yesterday, a wise man told me Twitter where you give gyaan. Here is my first attempt, connecting the similarities between poker, and trading #poker #trading
Learn to survive
If you don't bet, you can't win. If you lose all your chips, you can't bet. Learn the balance. Survive your initial days until you learn. Don't go against the pros on your first night with a pile of cash. Start small. #poker #trading
Table selection
If you earn less than 100k, don’t play tables with 25k buy-ins against millionaires. If you lose, you are out in one game. Similarly, if you have a 2L trading account, you shouldn't trade 4 Lots of Yes Bank at 20x leverage. Try 1 lot Nifty. #poker #trading

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
#RandomThoughts
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH
