'Allin Idiots'

By: tally49 @ 22:48 (EDT) / 472 / Comment ( 11 )

I enjoy playing in the league but when I often have what I would normally consider a playable hand I am confronted with anything up to 5 allin's at the table. This is not what any decent poker player would call a " Normal" situation. It is truely amazing what people are shoving with. Call it the "Get Lucky" syndrome. I think this is what lets the league down and that PokerStars and the PokerSchool should be looking at addressing. I have no problem with a shove or a call that makes some kind of sense, but 10/3 offsuit or J/2 are just some of the examples that happen a great deal of the time. Sure, a low CSI makes any two cards a normal play, but the times I see AA or KK cracked with the most ridiculous holdings, beggers belief. I would strongly suggest that a way to fix this is to eliminate players from the compitition who perhaps finish in the bottom 1000 3 or four times in a row and must then wait to the following month to begin again. Thats my take. Anyone else have any thoughts on the "Allin Idiots"?
