Hello, not sure if this was the place to post this or not.

But as holdemace does, he thinks a lot.

Shame I was not rich, this idea is a killer.

I would like to see Stars or PSO to make a video book, rather than a book to read.
With todays technology we should have narated video books.
With diagrams and examples etc.

I would like to see all the Stars PROs make a little chapter for this video book,

and would love to see the proceeds going to charity. AS you do not hear about poker giving to charity much.

regards

steve

If you would have spent a few minutes on Google you would have found numerous articles on poker players donating money to charity. True to form you have once again chosen to make statements without any supporting evidence.

There appears to be no end to your delusions. If you couldn't take a few minutes to research this claim, how do you expect us to believe anything else you have said. Your "My mind is made up so don't confuse me with the facts!" attitude was grating at first, then it became reprehensible and now it is only pitiful.

Myself and others have tried to offer you advice and you paid lip service to some and ignored the rest, choosing to not see beyond your own closed mind.

You don't have to take our advice, but to denigrate the poker playing community at large is totally uncalled for. Face it, your actions show that you have no desire to do anything other than stir things up on this forum. Too bad the forum does not have an ignore feature so I will never accidentally come across one of your posts again.

Moving this to Community as it's not really a support query, more of a suggestion.

I entirely agree with Joe that the wider poker playing community are a charitable bunch.

Here's another one of interest that Ads posted about yesterday.

For every known player who contributes to charity I believe there are dozens who do so without having names big enough nor the desire to be known to the public.

A tip of the hat to those fine ladies and gentlemen. That is the ultimate good decision.

Apparently those with "near Mensa-like" intellects have no need of pesky facts and knowledge and such. Instead they can just operate under assumptions and preconceived notions,no matter how wrong they may be.

The poker community has a well deserved reputation as being very well stocked with members who give back and give back frequently.

To be as wrong about this as he is,and when it's so simple to find countless examples of poker players and their charity,as Joe pointed out, make's one surmise that the ignorance of the OP'er on this matter is likely willful.

Hmmmm, here we go again.

What, I would like to see STARS or PSO making a video book, not saying players do not make contributions to charity. But i notice that stars themselves are not mentioned in your defense.

And more to the fact of bringing books into the current time frame, technology, so technology narated books. NOt just ebooks they are just boring.

A pokerstars book.

Thought it was simple to understand but obviously I am mistaken.

And to mock a charity post is not exceptable people.
