“In the long run there’s no luck in poker, but the short run is longer than most people know,” famous poker books author Rick Bennet once said.

In his book King of a Small World,” Bennet says that experienced poker players don’t depend on luck to win. They depend on their skills and experiences. That’s a powerful statement for a game where chance is an essential element.

But as history shows, poker legends like Stu Ungar, Phil Hellmuth and Phil Ivey play (or played) the game so meticulously you would think they didn’t need luck to edge out opponents. Maybe they are good at the game, or they use some of the following strategies.

#1: Playing Fewer Games Vigorously

Players have different opinions on how to approach poker. Some say you should call as many hands as you can and hope you win...

@LupinIII - Returns with a nice set of updated scripts for usage with the latest NSC Builder tools

As you may or may not have noticed, the best Switch conversion tool, NSC Builder, was updated to 0.87c recently. If you missed it, you can always find the latest version HERE.

UPDATE: Only one byte was added to the batch file in 0.87c from 0.87b (and it was only to add "c" to the version in the window title). The preset files for 0.87b still work just fine with 0.87c so there is no need to update the presets file at this time.

Since my 0.86 update, NSC Builder has added support for the new master key from firmware 8.1.0. along with a feature to convert Japanese characters to Romaji. So I created updated copies of my drag and drop presets.

I have removed the option to merge everything into a single file. If you need to merge...
