A: It's 2 cents.

B: That's a great ROI for winning it.

C: These are great for Tilt release.

D: As to the shoving hands that would make the instructors cringe they'll all tell you the same thing---if you play ABC TAG poker in these you're playing them 1000% WRONG. So shove away.

E: Nice job plaws.

I always play these when I feel that I'm on tilt. Works great to relieve some of that anger and stress. Congrats with your win
