Yeah I've been playing on-line long enough to know 1/2 dozen ways to play from the same cpu, and e-mail accounts are less than a dime a dozen.
I mean if the possible cash really means that to you, I guess I can't fault a guy for trying. But given what the PPA is trying to do for us all, to me it's like signing up at Carbon as a new member every 30 days or until you cash. To me it's just not worth it.
I don't even like it when one of my friends gives me a password for a private event that I didn't earn. Hell I have to stay off that site because I've told them I couldn't play in the event for other reasons. I fully understand them trying to help a buddy, but the margins are so slim for these affiliates, I personally would like to see those who have earned the entry have a better shot.
But I'm also the same "old school" a-hole who thinks hand histories should be banned from all but play chip events. There are many ways to get an edge, or try to on-line. I just started playing in live poker leagues, part of my PPA outreach efforts, and I know all the software help is never going to help my live game so I never wanted to get dependent on it.
For those of you who haven't tried these poker bar leagues, they are a lot of fun. No a bad little business model, free poker and prizes paid for the bar or venue, not directly as in many states that is against the law. The operators make a deal with the bar owners because the bar owners make a profit from the increased business.
Either I'm better than I thought or the games are soft! 4 tourneys, 3 final tables and 1 win! Not bad considering I spent most my time pimping for the PPA and answering questions.
