You may want to find a Wiki on Bitcoin somewhere and just read up a little.  All rounds for all miners everywhere are (essentially) random.

I believe he may be thinking of things like Bitminter or BTCguild PPLNS rounds....  The Slush pool isn't like those.  A round in Slush is as long as it takes to find a block.  Could be 2 seconds, could be several hours.

Yes, Slush is best used 24x7.   Your score for a block decays very rapidly when you stop mining, unlike the more gradual decay of a DGM pool.  Leave for a couple of minutes and your reward drops towards zero very quickly.

Mined blocks are considered valid after 120 confirmations - then your unconfirmed reward will change into a confirmed reward and be elgible for payout.

EDIT:  make that 100 blocks....

This has always been confusing to me, so i'll try and explain it as simply as i can. Once the pool finds a block, every block found after that and added to the chain by anyone is considered one confirmation. Most pools look for 100 confirmations, or 100 blocks to be found subsequent to the one being found. so how long is 100 x (approximately) 10 minutes. or, about 16 hours.

So what you are saying is anybody in the world who starts working off the block that we found here, by adding new transactions to it? Phew get it out there!

Others are not adding transactions to our block, they are working on new blocks based on ours.
Miners always work on the longest chain of blocks.
When we found a block, Slush waits for 100 new blocks being found based on ours, to make sure the block really is contained in the longest chain, and not on some orphaned fork.
Sometimes two blcoks are found quite fast after each other (by different miners) and are not based on each other.
In that case, one will get invalid when the other one wins out on having new blocks being based on it.

Actually, blocks could be considered mature quite a time befor 100 or 120 confirmations quite safe, cause even a fork with some blocks in each chain is very unlikely, let alone tenth of blocks.
But in case a part of the network is seperated from the rest, waiting longer adds a little more safety.



tl;dr
Slush makes very very sure the block is in the longest chain and thus valid before paying you for your work on it.
