re: Poker & Anyone play in the WPT League?
I played in our local WPT amateur league for a while. The best thing that ever happened was a particular player showed up one day and everyone spazzed out over him playing because he was a pro. Spazzed out as in they didn't want him there and resented his presence. I thought that to be very shortsighted. I chatted him up at the break and voila, he became my coach and I soon found other places to play, like the casinos
Other than that the best thing was constantly running good versus the state champ. If he had KK, I had AA. Poor guy was beside himself and hated me. It was not a friendly group that was open to outsiders.
