ATE is whorshiped by many. I have an army of readers, and a legion of followers. The other day, someone actually refered to my fans, as "The ATE cult"
Before I'm gonna tell you my rules for me to be on a site, let's go over what I can do for you.
OK, I am the top authority in the WORLD, in the game of poker. IN certain areas, such as omaha, I am the best in the world, BY FAR.
Any issue, and I mean ANY, can be discussed and taught by me, and you will get the BEST and most ACCURATE answers, in the world. THere are a few
Experts in the world, with CLOSE to my knowledge, but THEY have lives, and do NOT just give out a TON of info, for FREE
Oh yes, my teaching ability, and ability to make critial points CLEAR, is the highest of ANY poker expert.
My claim to fame, is not so much my own accomplishments, although I have made money in poker for 18 years, and have won MANY tournaments, but rather in the accomplishments of my STUDENTS.
My best student, in fact, has made MILLIONS in poker. and not the PUNK way, by winning some lucky tournament.
Recently, a fan said "from now on, I only read you, and Daniel Negraneau."
This pretty much sums up the level of ATE expertese.
Funny, Daniel is one of the FEW, that I bother to read.
Oh no, this is NO joke. And, you had better not treat it as such.
If you heed my advice, you can IF you have the apptitude, become rich through poker.
Once in a while, I accept a private student, although this is not something I really push, or care to do.
But, for those really needing help, well OK even though it's WORK to properly train, and I HATE WORK.
I have so much experience in poker, that I just breeze through, and make my (modest) living, in a couple hours or less a day.
Ok, now here are the rules, for a site to get the LUXURY of having ATE here:
(1) I do NOT correct, spelling, typos, grammer, etc. This is one of the benefits of being ATE. I have sites BEGGING me to join, so this gives me
Carte Blance, to not waste my time.
(2) although I am very nice to newcomers, and will answer the most BASIC questions, WITHOUT being a rude punk about it, I have NO tolerance for those who give INCORRECT answers, who don't know what the heck they are talking about. ANYONE presenting incorrect facts/concepts/strategies, which could be damaging or TOTALLY DESTRUCTIVE to MY fans and readers, will be VERBALLY SHOT DOWN, with a degree of HARSHNESS commensurate to the level of damage to MY students that would be done, if they listen to the idiotic advice.
ANYONE, who doesn't know what they are talking about, had better say "my opnion" or "I think" and not state as fact, that which is incorrect.
(3) ATE has absolutely ZERO predujice against anyone, for anything, except being an idiot. Race, creed, age gender, sexual identy, size, national origin religion, lack of religion, etc. MEAN nothing to ATE. ATE accepts all fans, who are respectful and appreciative of ATE
(4) There are a few SECRET topics, which I WON"T talk about. Gotta save something for my books, which EVERYONE is WAITIKNG for. So, once I lable something secret, DON"T ASK
(5) ATE provides cute and helpful little editorial notes, explaining points which I feel might not be known to all, and are IMPORTANT
(6) ATE, being COMPLETELY original, and a CREATIVE GENIUS, uses his original terms, relating to poker I do NOT follow anyone, and ALWAYS try to make my own terms. Since I don't think anyone here knows them, I'll be sure to define anything, the first few times.
(7) If you want the best and most entertaining material in the world, you are REQUIRED to reply when you like an article. You may dissagree, if you are QUALIFYED to do so, but it had better be in a respectful fashion, or you will be torn to pieces by ATE, and/or I'll just leave the site, and you will miss your free education
(8) Although I write in a contraversial style, I don't say ANYTHING that make
any of my articles worth deleating. Any deleating of my articles, will result in no more goodies for the readers of a site.
Again, I urge you to research the whole ATE situation, and the responces from my fans, before saying anything SNOTTY and Disrespectful about me. It's a joy, and a tremendous financial advantage to have ATE on your site, and respect and appreciation, are the price.
(9) although you may feel free to aks me a question, you MUST do so, in either an email, private message, or in a SEPERATE thread. I don't have the time to read every responce thread, so questions asked therein, will not be seen by me.
(10) In fact, sites that are smart enough to know a good thing when they see it, often give me my OWN SECTION
I don't require this, but it's a good idea
Well, that's about it for now (oh, did I mention that I don't follow any silly rules, about article length)
Read, enjoy, and learn poker.
