Some people get their Poker Ph.D. from ESPN; others, from UCLA. Jesus got his Doctorate in Game Theory. A tweeds to riches story--academia can't compete with the huge payouts that tournament poker players enjoy.
This is the wake up call from ABC by-the- book players to the internet crews. The so-called new ways to play holdem are the old ones heated up in a microwave for 15 seconds. You see, Poker Doesn't think. It is an infinite game;the overall phenomenon of NLH has no end. It is always a frontier, always on the edge. WWJD? Jesus is edgy, getting jiggy with it at Ceasar's.
I wanted to write the book--Learn Poker in Ten Years--What's the rush? Then, I realized--- Things don't even out with time, they even out with the number of hands you play!
Learn Poker from the JOES:Change is instant. It's preparing for the change that takes time. That's why online is for the ages, the ages of 21 to 120!
There are no longer digital homeless who only play cash games. Online is grad school. I got my BS (Bull Sh*t) degree in Poker at brick and mortar Los Angeles Card Clubs like The Bike, Commerce and Hustler. I got my MBA (More Bull Sh*t) degree at PartyPoker back in 1999! Then, they, the anonymous no one, pulled the plug on US Players.
I'm doing online course work at Fulltilt andPokerStars. I need $85, 000 more credits before I graduate in May 2008! You see:MONEY IS POKER'S REPORT CARD
Give a man a fish you teach him for a day; teach him how to play poker, you don't have to teach him anything!
Poker the insignificant other-
Poker is a lot like "significant others"---coming into your life for a reason, for a season or for treason. It is not a game of cards played with money. it is a game of money played with cards. It is a game of partial information. Betting is the language that comunicates either that you have the best hand, or you want others to think you do by gambling they won't call your bluff--with the worst hand.
Poker rewards aggression, but there has to come a time in your cash game where you realize that chips are not tournament chips but real money! That day has come for Hotel_Anyware.
Chips also = capital, not income. This is a business, and like a general contractor, your chips are your tools---Don't sell the tools. It's like selling the car for gas money! The cost of doing business are the chips; bad beats, the overhead.
