I think it's a shame. Makes me question the human race. I've run stats. on a bunch of the beggars (are they a profitable investment??..lol.. they always claim to be... ie. send me $5 and I'll send you 60% of what I make,... OR, send me 10 and I send you $9 back... I have $4.50 in my account but I need $5.50 to play in sng). Guess what... most of their stats. suck, lol.... BUT some of them are actually winning players (as far as sngs & mtts go). I've seen some who were up a few hundred and who ran pretty good. Hmm... guess they took it to the cash tables.
I've sent a few stranges money in the past, not while in a tourney but while watching one. One time I had same guy I'd sent $5 to a couple days prior, railing me on a final table, then asking me for $$'s. I said to him, "Man... I just sent you some a couple days ago? Not even a 'thanks' for that time from ya?" He didn't even recall the $5 I'd sent him,... hmm.. guess some of them get $$'s frequently enough to keep them begging for more. Others I've sent some too, weren't asking for any at all... .just thought I'd share a bit,.. what the hell.
If you watch some of the final table play in MTTs on Fulltilt, you'll see an assortment of the same beggars on there in each and every one, day after day. They must be getting something out of it?? Sad to see one's addiction get so bad as to feel the need to stoop so low to beg for $'s on an online poker site
. On that note... "hey.. anyone got a spare fin on Fulltilt?" (just kidding).
They should start up a poker forum
.... "Poker-Beggars". Holding freerolls
with zero $'s in the prizepool and to get the password you have to beg like crazy for it.
