Online poker

Postby A Fleshner Fantasy » Sat Dec 30, 2006 11:17 pm

Anyone else play?

If so, what is the biggest disappionment you have ever had?

I just had one today where there were 10,000 entrants, top 50 have a shot at $$. I got 54th out of 10,000 and just barley missed the money, so for now I am taking a break, but I just wanted to vent that. Please share your joyful and horrific stories in the world of online poker.

must be playing on poker stars. Been it the money on a couple of the free rolls. Low end just a dollar or 2. Lost it real quick on the real money tables.
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.

Played a couple times years ago. I did well, if I remember correctly, but it doesn't beat the real thing. Poker is about betting, yes, but it's also about body language and you can't get that at a computer.

I don't understand this question at all. Is it a sarcastic jab at Matthias or what?

No, I am just saying, there is no way I could justify to myself how I could possibly lose that much in one day unless it was 1 or 2 really bi high stakes tourneys. After I lost a couple hundred, I would just stop...my question was how did he keep justifiying to hinself, after losing and losing, to keep on playing?
