Hello All; 

First off i would like to make clear that im not being pesimistic, nor optimistic when i mearly question the 'poker' term 'variance.

I above all I love to see the flop, pending on my position and stack and how deep we are into a tourney (pso).  With a stack u can clearly limp, and or bully (take advantage) ur way to take the blinds.

For the MOST part though, is this not a polite way of calling the 'variant' hand player, a 'fish', or worse a donk (and yes the term 'donk' in poker is equal to idiot, and im fully aware of the pro player that originated the term and wow he talks alot lol)

I am no saint i must add, as i use the term 'loosely' on occasion and we should not get offended as its a mere way of busting not out on chips- but tilt!

Please correct me if I should be pointed in the wrong direction, as I do TRY to davour all knowledge, and I have a long, long, long, way to go-gl on all of our games-patience is imparitive
