Why you shouldn't listen to a "champion"
Okay, now I knew all along this was wrong, but some newbies to this league I played in pre-injury lapped up this incorrect advice. This guy, a 'I know more about poker than anyone' type would tell people that a person with an As Kh had a better hand than a player with Ac Kd. He would justify this by commenting that the Ace was an Ace of Spades, and a higher suit. In Hold 'Em, SUITS DO NOT MATTER, because no suit trumps another. But this guy claimed to know more than anyone because he was in a WSOP
tourney, because he won a seat in a Poker Stars
satellite. He has named himself a "champion" because of it. Yes, playing the WSOP is a great accomplishment, something I've never done, but it does not make someone a poker afficiando; maybe in his own mind.
