...the epitome of online "random" number generator [NL/TxH'Em] games.
Been there, done that.
Miss a registration, just to get on a table 2-5 "levels" LATE registering in on a ~9 player table...... got one person that has a 20,000+ stack and the rest are sitters. Start w/ 1500 chips and the blinds are +100/150/75a+ and he shoves with GARBAGE on all hands no matter what just to knock you off the table.
F>>>K ANTES!!! (and F>>> the "random" number generator for THAT matter!...FIFTY-TWO CARDS MY M#$##$@ F$#@$#@$ A$$!!!!)
Small-blind/Big-blind should be the ONLY factor to entice betting/gamplay when it comes to online "random" number generator poker.
Confucius say: It's better to be an a$$#ole than the whole @$$. (...and you can probably tell what one usually I am )
