Is.............abuse. Loads of it. In every tournament I've played since the league was finalised.

This also occured the last time I made the top 10. Does anybody else get these sad little haters, or am I a special case?

Yes

But I tend to get them for my posts in the forum.People saying I have a big Ego or how horrible I play.
Thing that bothers me more is the soft play near the end of the month that I have been on both sides of.I dont like it but it seems to be hard butt out.

Have noticed a group of players that play a home game together that soft play each other and one of there members usually will have a huge stack very early on.Still to early to say names but I am watching them,since it does involve a lot of members and they dont post in here at all.

yeah. the soft play and chip dumping at the end of a month is BAD.

Darkman, you're not the only one with your situation. That's for sure.... been there, done that.

Envy... maybe, but I didn't feel the hate. In fact, those checking the leaderboard showed respect to my bets and raises. It must be you.

Well that's not entirely right, but there's certainly an element of truth to it

What I can say with certainty though is that amongst the "non American" poker playing group there is larger percentage of donks, fish and retards. Sad but true.

Why did you have to single me out ? No need to be offensive, just take my chips and say thanks.
