while in a recent sat i was faced with a tough call, while thinking it over there were comments made while i was thinking after i called and after i lost the hand. heres what was said.(ive taken out the hands that happened after.

WINGER: hey the spots aren't gonna change no matter how long u look at em
molson wins $3,750
molson won with a pair of aces
j2595 finishes in 9th place
WINGER: snap
WINGER: hey j try the fun tables
j2595: take yor sarcastic comments and shove them
SENGA: there is really no call for that winger
WINGER: oh no
SENGA: anyone is perfectly entitled to play whatever they want
WINGER: u know how much your opinin means to me seng
SENGA: as you do often enough
SENGA: a wise man will listen to a fool
WINGER: u should know
SENGA: a fool will listen to no man
WINGER: wow ...can i quote u?
SENGA: when have I ever been anything other than courteous to you ??
WINGER: or me to u?
SENGA: all I am saying is leave it alone if you cant say something nice to people
WINGER: perhaps u should mind your own business
aha12877: and i thought pso was one happy family
SENGA: so is that what u were doing when you so rudely involved yourself with J s hand
WINGER: i'm happy .arent u?
aha12877: :-)
WINGER: do u know what might have transpired previously?
SENGA: in this game - nothing

i think that comments like this are uncalled for at the table and to quite honest i think it is a good job i was sitting at my pc and not in a B&M casino

After thinking it over, I have decided that I do not wish to play with people who make comments like the above. Therefore I am forfeiting my C qualification in the big one 2 poker school can do what they see fit with my C qualification seeing as though I will now not be playing.

That's certainly your prerogative, althought I'd put up with an awful lot for a chance at $12,000.

But, if you're not using it, can I have it, please?


P.S. Winger's comments WERE disgraceful.

before you give up something that you earned - please remember that obnoxious people are a part of poker, just as they are a part of life. Some people will always seek to gain an advantage by antagonizing those around them.

If you earned a spot in the WSOP would you throw it away because pro's like Phil Helmuth (who probably would have been much worse than WINGER) were playing in it????

disable the chat if you don't like what people are saying.

I have to agree with Rover, J. You earned that slot. Don't let that loudmouth you encountered blow it for you. If you don't play because of them, then they win a small (possibly large) victory.

Don't give them the satisfaction. Go forth and play in the Big One II!!

If you can't put up with rude players at the table how are you ever gonna stand up to a final table in a major tourney with Phil Hellmuth?
Don't cut off your nose to spite your face.

I agree with all of you. I have played with the best and some are not very nice at the tourney table.
Don't throw that 'C' away!! You earned it. Now go for the win :!: :!:

J, Don't let anyone take away a chance that you earned :P If you do that they are gloating in glory :twisted: that they got to you. Put it behind you and move forward! :wink: If you don't you will never know what could have been. :?: Everyone here at pso has their ups and downs it is part of life but I think for the most part everyone tries to get along. With the exception of a few who will not spoiled it for everyone else. Please don't let this stand in your way go and play your C Qualification. YOU EARNED IT!!!!!!!!! You may get the last Laugh :P

J2595: Don't let :twisted: words, make you give something that you earned away. I posted in here a few weeks ago about this very thing, and although most are very friendly, there are a few that say things that are uncalled for. I was surprized to see who was acting like this, as I have always found WINGER to be fun to play with, and have never encountered words from him, but they were said, so just let them run off your back like water off a duck. Back to what I posted regarding this behavior, it really is too bad and it seems to be coming alot from the better players in this school. People talk of this Phil H. and his mouth, is that the way you, who act like this, want to be remembered? Some players are new, so give them a feeling of being wanted and welcome, not making them feel like they want to quit, and some may do just that.

Cool!! If everybody quits, maybe I'll have a chance!!
In all seriousness, don't hurt yourself over someone else's stupidity!
Get back at 'em, and take all their chips!

My experience with Winger is that he's a Jerk.......

Don't let an instance with a self-absorbed jerk, sour you on your accomplishment of getting a 'C' qualification and a chance to play in the WPO.

Winger couldn't analyze his way out of a wet-paper sack, and sure as hell wouldn't get any help from anyone getting out of it......

This is TOO MUCH, poker players with bad behavior and poor social skills..... God Forbid.....


No more PSO!
No more Monday Night Football...
No more nice "cool ones" while watching Sunday's games....
No more saute mushrooms on my steak....
No more sex with my wife.....


During the last year while playing poker at various places, consider the
behavior or events.

These things actually happened......
  • card room employee stole chips from players stack.
  • an old guy (regular) threatened the life of woman dealer, he was
    serious. (He was escorted out of the club).
  • players on several occasions ripped up their cards..
  • 2 fights that broke out at the table between players..
  • A guy took my seat, while I was on a break, and refused to leave, I had a couple of thousand in chips sitting there and he was demanding the house to pick up my chips. Security had to use some force to remove him. (This was during side action play at a major tournament. I saw this guy again at another tournament several months later. He was still a perfect xssholx.)
  • During a very loose game with lots of money and chips, 2 armed guards stood watch over the table to prevent 3 buddies known to fight at the drop of a hat from starting anything. A 4th buddy (a very large man) not playing tried to sit at the table and intimidate the other players. (He kept repeating he could kick any ones ass in the place..) This is when I went and got the floor manager and asked for armed guards. Did I want these guys to leave? NO! We were playing 9/18 with a kill and the 3 guys lost almost $5000 between them. I was very glad that the guards were at the table when, in a 7 way kill pot, capped before the flop, capped on the flop, I made a Str. Flush Q high on the turn. When the betting was over on the turn, I was heads up with one of these guys, he made the other end of the Str. Flush on the river. Being heads up we bet all of our chips. This guy was both drunk and now really pissed! I was very glad the house security was standing right there.
    These guys were mostly joking around, but the staff knew that they could get out of control and was prepared for it.

You might say, you would leave, or change tables. Well I have done both, but sometimes you can't. You may be down $1000 and your not going to get it back if you leave and this is the only place to play. Or, just the opposite the actual playing conditions are great and you know you will make money if you stay.

This says nothing about:
Dealers that insult you,
Players that insult you,
Players that stink.. their body odor would make you gag...
Players that have sever bad breath.
Players that are drunk and obnoxious.
Players that are just plain NUTs...
Floormen who make the most stupid rulings, or rulings to that intentionally favor the local regular player.

PSO is pretty tame.... and most of the players are really great...

If your going to take a stand on something, how about faster "balancing" the tables in a multi-table tourney. Or not having to pay the BB 2 or 3 times in row when being moved.

**Please note, that these examples are rare! Most of the people and places I
have played, are great.

(You can tell I'm either bored or using this time to write this post, as therapy after someone was rude to me here on PSO.) grin

Well said, kid! Not too mention all of the other problems going on in the world! Considering the overall pleasantness and positives that go along with PSO, seems sort of trivial to me to just "take your ball, and go home". But, there are some people who, if you gave 'em a million dollars, they'd be upset, 'cause you didn't give 'em a million and one! lol
Call me all the names you want! I'm sure I've been called worse, a time or 2!

ive never had any problems on PSO before and im sure it was a one off incident but at the moment im still pi**ed off and will not be playing in the big one two or any tournaments this month, i will however play 12 more sats to qualify for the sat league 1 but then thats it for the month.
this is no way a reflection of how i fell towards PSO or anything PSO have done. i think there is on the whole a great bunch of talented players on here and most of them are still improving. and while there are great sites like this offering players a unique chance to improve their game risk free i shall continue to play.
but im going to give it rest until the WPO round three for which i have also qualified and WILL be playing.
see you in jan 2003

maybe you shoudl skip the wpo round 3 event and play the big one II. only one person has a chance in the round 3 event for a 10k seat. 2nd place gets nothing. with your C qualifier, you win money(points) if you place in the top 20 spots. with more than 10k for first. i dont want to sound rude here, but i think that skipping the tournament would be one of the most stubborn, and dumbest things i have ever seen. because of a few comments, you are going to pass up a chance at 10 thousand dollars plus? what am i missing here?
