Wow this is an interesting subject, and I really want to not make this like I do most of the time? The first thing is that talk about being around winner or losers and both for a lot different reasons. I have to agree %100 about having only winners in my circle. A losers are for the pickers. But you know what, I will get on here and try to help every one that crosses my path if I can. So the two worlds are very far apart
Yeah I know the question is about playing with friends. Love to play with them. I have no problem taking their money and neither do they. I want to tell a little story about the best friend I have that plays poker online.
We playing a MTT, one player gets mad and they get into it, and to this day I don't know why I pick Matt to help, and we got in there and tried to tilt him all we could. Afterward Matt and I got from the other every way we could be contacted. So we start talking and playing the same MTTs and cash tables. This went on I don't know how many years, but every day of it was a lot of fun. Well one day we got started talking about how it would be to end up heads up at the FT. We cashed a lot but only one time we got to the FT and it really happed. We went heads up. I had him covered five times. When we started I put it on post/fold, and he is raising hell about what I was doing. My plan was to post/fold until we got even, no matter what, and best hand win. He liked that. When we went all in I had 56 and he had K6. I hit the 5 on the flop and he hits the 6 on the river. I will never forget it, and even though we don't talk much anymore, he is still a good friend
