re: Poker & Kamikaze Tourney
Few players online are 'serious' poker players, imo. It is recreational for some, disastrous for others and profitable only for a few.
Something like this is a novelty and can't possibly be taken seriously. Don't know if they still have it, but it's a bit like 'Blind Man's Bluff' they've played at the WSOP
before. Everybody can enjoy a diversion from time to time.
Just an extreme version of the 'all-in or fold' games that are popular with the adrenalin junkies.
