One Poker Player's "Mini-Pit" - A Perspective on Hardware

There are many, many hardware solutions to trading. This is one where a small private group of Vegas poker players gather to play the one true "Big Game."

Below are shots from one of what we call our "mini-pits" and the desk from which the remote "mini-pits" are monitored.

Each of the stations is a Dell Workstation with a quad-core chip and 8 gigs of RAM running Windows 7 driving 8 19" flat monitors.

For the internet conncections the LAN here has dual 50 mps cable modems and a 6 mps DSL all feeding into a fault tolerant, load sharing and load balancing router with three input slots.

All of the traders regardless of location conference for the entire session via Skype and a Polycom device.

We are a private closed group and we are not selling anything or recruiting anybody we are only sharing our perspetive on hardware and setups.

This setup includes 4 stations and the machines are placed so the traders cannot easily see the others setups. The idea is that regardless of market all of the traders make their trades alone and then when the session is over they all review each other trades. Trade Alone - Learn Together.

With account linking all of the trades by all of the traders, regardless of location, can be seen in real-time, on charts on these 12 monitors from this control station.

Did you get banned from TL?

I knew about you on ET, where, as a vendor, you got banned from posting, trying to sneak under the radar to draw members to your website. Baron determined you were, in effect, advertising for free-- a violation of ET's TOS.

Thanks for being so positive.

I've followed the posts in TL for a while and even private messaged UB.
Although the posts by UB incite my brain to 'thinking out of the box', I've never been approached to buy anything.

Maybe your experience is different?

Good to see the vendor designation is now under his handle--no more stealthy marketing.

David, my point is that he is not fooling anyone and IMO he should be posting this where it belongs. Do you really want every vendor to start posting in this manner so that we have to sit here and sort through all of it?

I agree, it was a rude comment and I apologize for upsetting you Mike. I will never intentionally be a jerk to anyone on this site, but in principle I really don't have any problem being rude to company that is intentionally doing the wrong thing. That said, I respect your wishes and I will refrain from doing so again in the future.
