re: Poker & Duplicate Poker
They emailed me, told me I still had $6 I think, and that they'd send me $3 as a bonus once I deposited. No way in hell am I depositing. Horrible idea, the goal was to remove luck although it's only increased the luck aspect. Unless you play super loose, the other table will more likely be looser than you, thus have a wider margin of chips, thus decide the outcome of the entire match. Just pray the person at the other table that gets your cards gets a bad run of cards. You'll just play tightish and maybe win a bit, maybe lose a bit while the other table will play super loose, one will end up 2-3 stacks ahead of the other, and your play will have made no difference. I may go over there and flip a few more coins just with the hopes of turning it into $20 I can cash out, but it's just not fun, and I can probably average a better return on my time if I just play real poker. It's sad when people don't understand that duplicate poker has infinitely more luck than NLHE. Anyway, I'll never play there with any real money
, I think it's a stupid idea, and I'm not wasting my time there.
