MY Worst Hour Ever In POKER
My fav ever poker site
sadly closed at 12 pm ET and I spent the last hour with other regulars counting down the minutes and the hands until that fateful hour when we got the message "table closed"
I started playing on this site (World Poker Exchange) pretty soon after it opened in 2006 and have played there ever since.
It is only a small site and has been allowed to gradually fade and die through inept management and stupidity, over the last few years it has got quieter and quieter, even Black Friday didnt give it the boost we had hoped for.
I loved playing on there, these days if there was 6 tables open it was a busy time, but I knew all the players, many had been on since the beginning and they are the nicest group of players I have ever met (apart from on CC of course
I have got email addresses of my special friends from there with the promise to meet on another site but it will never be the same sadly.
It has only been closed 2 hours and I miss it like mad already, in the final few hands I wasnt the only player to admit to shedding a few tears, I never thought I could get this emotional over a poker site closing, but I have.
There are a couple of regulars I have played against for years and know well and I didnt get their emails cos they wernt on there in the last week and the thought I will never talk to them again is just devastating
Poker will never be the same .My only wish is that sometime in the future it will open again, but of course it will never ever be the same even if it did If I was rich I would buy it myself and reopen it tomorrow but I'm not so I cant
I know I am just a sentimental old fool but it really does make me sad
