That's not poker. Poker is about reading the opponents and calculating the probabilities, odds (and implied odds), and that's called skills...

Re: The poker thread

Bad players complain about bad luck and just await to get luckier, that's why they're dead money

Seriously mate, poker is all about skill in almost all situations. You can get lucky sometimes but to consistently perform well you must be good.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

No limit Texas hold'em is the ultimate card game

I´ve played all kind of card games during my whole life and I´d rather play a pocha anyday over a NL Texas Hold´em

Ever tried the noble game of BRIDGE, Deivid?

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"


"The Storm Before The Calm"

Anathema

Into music of the PROG-Dorky-kind? visit my blog or MTF's Prog Rock Thread.
