    @DaleKerr @SuddenlyBryce @CrownPoker yeah the Aria HRs use timebanks too. They're needed for sure.

    @jvfricke maybe we can improve the rules or implementation of the shot clock? @stealthmunk's chess clock suggestion is intriguing.

  • Phil
    Phil "MrSweets28" Galfond Jul 13 00:43

    It might just be the players, but I think the shot clock may have caused everyone to act more quickly preflop even when they had extra time.

  • Phil
    Phil "MrSweets28" Galfond Jul 13 00:41

    I agree with this completely, but still feel the shot clock tourneys I've played were a significant improvement. https://t.co/FCNkyBaOum

    Chess clock is even better than shot clock! It would be more difficult to implement though, right? https://t.co/GP4PDwBvzc

    RT @RealKidPoker: At 9 handed table if all took 15 seconds to act preflop it would take 2:15 just to see flop. Would be impossible to play…

    @SLOPPYKLOD @FerinBen @RealKidPoker kid at my table was taking 8-10s every hand pre and he folded over 80% of the time. Definitely not cool.

    @Spadda95 Tom is extremely naturally talented. From what I hear Ungar was incredible, but I never had the pleasure of meeting him.

  • Phil
    Phil "MrSweets28" Galfond May 23 23:45

    @rpizzle7 what I call natural talent is mostly just high aptitude for specific things involved in poker: Logic/psychology/math/empathy/etc

    @fanexfox definitely. No doubt tools sped up our learning tremendously. I'm just saying that many could've learned the old fashioned way too

    All that said, Blom is def the most gifted young player. He and Doyle and Ivey are my all-time top 3 in terms of strictly natural ability.

    Good point. Online poker brought pros who would've been lawyers/engineers/physicists if online poker didn't exist. https://t.co/sJhZZI5LVy

    I'd imagine @TexDolly DESTROYED almost all pros 40yrs ago, but the 15th best pro then vs. the 15th best today is a different story.

  • Phil
    Phil "MrSweets28" Galfond May 23 22:37

    There are always special people who are outliers. I think @TexDolly is prob the best of all generations, but doesn't represent the average.

    Phil "MrSweets28" Galfond May 23 22:33

    ...took the top 100 today vs the top 100 from 30 yrs ago, I believe today's top 100 would be more naturally talented on average.
