The economy is in the tank and will not get any better soon.


How is the poker scene going in Vegas or any other resort local.

I know of at least one relatively succesful poker nut that has had to
change his reliance on poker for spending money, any others you care to
share.
C'mon folks .... Misery loves company....

In Seattle it died off a little bit, but it is coming back. Gamblers
are gamblers. If anything the hard players are getting too tight, the
easy players are playing too loose.

This was a bad beat. Watch the No Limit Pro lose a couple hundred
thousand dollars in one hand.

Play in Macau...... Plenty of Chinkyfish over there, Seriously, they all
think they are Johnny Chan with the oranges and apples at the table. In
Northern California you had better like playing short handed.

I love playing short handed, problem is few others do and games that stay
short tend to bust up.

I know a guy who always put poker, sports and his hobbies ahead of his wife
and kids. Plus, he would hit on any woman with a pulse. His wife finally
got fed up and divorced him. He ran around telling every one how happy he
was to be rid of her and to have his "freedom". I found that amusing
considering that he had always done exactly what he wanted any way. A short
time later his wife inherited $10 million+ and he never got a dime of it.
Actually, I don't know if that qualifies as a bad beat or poetic justice.

That qualifies as lack of skill if your wife is in line for a 10 million
inheritance and you don't know it or what to do about it.

deserving guy.
Maybe there is something to this karma stuff after all.
