First of all, do what everybody else does and push all in every 3rd hand. Just kidding, that's the disrespectful way to play poker. Right now I'm just denting my scores in the PSO Open Skill League. Not purposely of course, but the players there are donkeys. They don't have any respect. It's tough to play a good respectful game of poker only to get slammed by J3os and it doesn't just happen once. It happens every game relentlessly. It's way out of control. I don't know if the other players completely understand, but we are trying to learn and some of us put all of our efforts into one game and try to get the best results. My best results have not been great. I haven't played in any one game today for longer than 15 mins., it's embarrassing and it's not even my fault. I'm stuck and there is nothing I can do. I'll have to take the abuse until things get better. I tell it like it is, I'll show my negatives, but when all of this is through I will also boast my wins. Why ? Because boasting is cool and I like doing it. Just like the donkeys like to donkey. ok, so I was just eliminated in the PSO Open with AK, it was running for 2 mins., there's more negative points. Opponent had QQ, a reasonable player. Before going all in now I always tell my opponents "gg and good luck" because I know that I'm leaving the game. All of that is very clear when I go all in. Regardless of what I have I'll be leaving the game. I could even wait until I'd be 99% sure to win and still I will be eliminated. All I can do is chin up and struggle through it. All of this makes me very very strong in the later days that follow, so it's ok if the players disrespect me. I'm used to it. That's poker in 2013. Keep playing and good luck.
