THIRD OFFER DEAL with EIGHT REDS?!!
I don't care what you know who says, that was a rubbish offer.
That is just nonsense, it was a generous stick after taking the £100K and £15K.
Nah, it was a pretty poor offer. Very stable board. I'd be wanting £25k+ there.
Well pitched by the banker it has to be said.
When will people understand how offers work? How can the offer be "poor" if the player deals? The offer is always tailored to the player, hence there is no set tariff. If the player deals, then the banker got the offer spot on! A "bad" offer would be offering £25k+ when the player would have dealt at £17k!!
Good lord, how hard can this be to understand. Look at the bit where I say:"Well pitched by the banker it has to be said."
When I (and others) talk about offers there's generally 3 things I'm referring too:
1) Good/Bad - I'm talking about whether it is a mathematically good/bad offer.
2) I then generally make a comment about whether or not I would deal, or where abouts my tipping point is. This may be above/below what is considered a mathematically good offer.
3) And i'll usually make a comment about how the offer relates to the current player.
So the above was a poor (though not bad by any means) offer that nevertheless was a well pitched offer by the banker because he recognised the player was likely to deal below what the board was worth.
