No one plays super bad like they use to. Everyone plays solid basically.

Casinos don't care about their players like they use to. We went from be treated like VIPS to Poker Addicted scum.

The games don't run as high as they use to. And never been nittier!!!

People have gotten scummier and scummier. There are no friendly gamblers left anymore. Just back -Stabbing pyschopaths who would care about 400$ more than their own mother.

Before the poker boom, besides the stupid tourney grinders everything has just gotten worse for us cash gamers. Instead of being a rare breed of human willing to play most days of the week, we are now common disposable, and frankly looked down upon (by the cardrooms).

So if they money isn't what it use to be. If the players have changed for the worse as well as playing better, the casinos treat your worse than they did 6 years ago, And there is are mno more jucy games either live or online, what the fk am i doing in 2013?

re-donk-raise-fold (2012-11-28) poker is money. if not for players, then for cardrooms.
and wherever is money, there are people and ... more money.
poker is gonna be getting more and more promoted. there will be more movies, more celebrities, more culture, more events, more players, more everything
and the beautiful thing about poker, thats is LUCK factor, it stands firmly. just ****in get a few chinese whales and the whole grinding community is happy.
its gonna get better guys



I think the chinese dudes are gonna play poker and we gonna have some fish again, and a lot of...

I hate to say that but I am thinking of starting playing tourneys.. the variance might be huge but i think the EV there is bigger due to the amount of fish

I know what everyone has been saying about the traffic on ftp, but theyve been promoting the **** out of asia, almost as if theyre trying to create another poker boom. Freeze, heres some semi serious advice. Move to macau, grind 2/4 3/6 online, and as a side note, the games on betfair are increadible. With more ppl inerested in poker, the traffic over there will surge, tons of chinese donks, which are the best kind of donks imo. Neway gl freeze, and plz post more stories

denis, you don't miss an opportunity to telling how you (easily) win, even against "good" players !

Nice, I like it !

But you could reveal something about your way of doing it. Just for keeping your credibility.

since u asked nicely ill give u a free tip and thx btw


i seen few hands where hero makes a call with king hi when in the long run it was a bad call vs any given range then shows hand to brag which is fine cuz its players like these that i exploit so heres the free tip find players with egos like the player i mentioned and just bet for value all day


i find doing that often really messes their game up cuz they dont know when im bluffing


truth be told its all about balance


hope that helped
