how old do you think you should be to play poker in tourneys, I think I'm pretty good when I set my mind to it and I'm 16, like when I play online poker I usually get to the final table 8 out of 10 times, is that good, or bad. and what are your thoughts on teens and poker?

It's because online poker is rigged to favor younger players because then they have that much more time to rake your money.

16? So, play money tables I assume? Can't judge much off that, and also, would still need a bit more hard evidence to give any type of opinion on your play. But on the issue of teen poker players, I don't really have problems with teenagers playing poker. I think playing poker is a lot more stimulating for the mind than sitting on the couch playing video games like lots of teenagers nowadays do.

Ok, maybe it is a guy thing in general. Never said there was anything wrong with it, just said that poker is a bit more stimulating than video games, in my opinion.

NO its rigged to generate a higher rake for the poker site, its so obvious there is no argurment about it, you must work for one of these sites cause your sure are hell bent on thinking its not rigged, when bamm its right there in your face. when a site if busting out straights, flushes, 4 of a kind every other hand, one has to scratch thier head and go wait a minute here something not right about this picture.

LOL LOL LOL LOL


dude you are better then almost every pro in the world right now, since most pros don't even cash more then 50% of the time in tournaments which is why they play cash games also.


seriously if you are final tabling 8 out of 10 tournaments then you should quit school and go pro right now!!!!


maybe you meant you made final table 8 out of 10 times in sit and go's I believe that.

8 out of 10 final tables on play money games is NO indication of your talent. Go play some freerolls, and if your that good you will have a little bankroll to work on fairly quickly. There are Cardschat freerolls going on weekly, then take a shot at a real game, and be prepared to get your ass handed to you :)

ID suggest having a look and a read at the hand anyalsis section of this forum and try to learn the game and understand some of the concepts being discussed there, have a shot at answering a few yourself and youll soon find out what stage your game is at.

Oh yea, get a few books and study a little if you can afford it.

everytime I try to sign up for one of those on fulltilt it never lets me register, or is a free roll a tourney where you have to win regestration?
