re: Poker & Where
In ten years, there will probably be many more great players. The players who are starting now will improve their game greatly if they wish too.
Especially in tournys, just think how much the winnings have increased in the past few years. More players, more prize money, more incentive to improve your game.
I can see poker becoming a bigger "sport" like golf, as normal sports such as baseball, basketball, football and hockey decline because of overpaid stars causing higher prices to attend games. Poker and golf and individual contests will only reap the benfits.
Let the best man or woman win.
