"Binking a big one" does NOT make it get better.... it only makes it much much worse!!
Nip it in the bud.... send her to Belize (with Mike ). Maybe we can get a deal.... '2 for 1' or something?
Do you believe in gambling addictions? When I google it, I get tons of sites about addictions. Sounds like that'd be it. Better teach her how to play fast if you don't want to end up having to send her away (don't do that ). If you get her to see it's skill and work, well, it becomes less fun... Work is tiring Even if you love it.
I'm calling it gambling cuz it's not an investment if you're not trying to make money. When I play poker, I call it an investment. When a guy pushing it all in every hand for fun plays, I call it gambling.
And yes, I agree with Orifice on this. The binking will only worsen your problem. Tricking the mind into thinking the player is a winning player is never good...
Also, if I did grow up and meet a girl who was also interested in studying poker, I'd gladly share a bankroll if she wanted to. But this is different. If both people aren't taking it seriously, it won't work. Separate the bank rolls till you both have the same goals.
