Just wondering what people think about if poker sites had private sections that had members who have passed a poker aptitude test to be able to enter and play in. Of course the test would have a multitude of random questions that would have to be answered in a certain time frame to eliminate the use of the web to look up the answers as well as to eliminate the idea that a person would be able to see the exact same questions, remember them and eventually get the right answer and join. I just think not only will it help alleviate total donk play it would maybe get people to try and learn more about poker itself.just a thought.:)

But why wouldn't you want the donks at your table to be able to eventually outride their luck and then take all their money? I think it's a horrible idea...no offense.

judging by this topic, you would fail such an aptitude test seeing as you don't appear to understand that having donks at the tables is a good thing.

You're dead wrong

:mad: Okay I bet you're one of the donks that has set at my table and drawed out on bs off suits low hands to my monsters and replied that it was just shit luck and thats the name of the game:mad: , get outta here!! I don't want donks anywhere in Poker until they learn how to play,because if they live their life on luck like they do in poker they'll be one dead idiot, just like in the game its all full circle guy so don't tell me about its great to have donks at a table until you play at my stakes in ring games loser:mad:

Not Really!

:cool: Their big enough stakes i can tell ya that, but besides that you said i contradicted myself, i don't think so!:cool: I clearly said that the donk players that get lucky on draw outs and ect. are not wanted by me at a table, and i said that if they lived life on the same level as they play Poker they would be dead idiots, and sure they win some but they lose bigger and quicker then players that truly know the game, you can adlib all you want but it comes full circle in the end because luck should never be part of any one's strategy because its just their and can't be relied on!!:D and i don't want to play with players like that i.e(MANIAC RAISERS AND CALLERS, LIMPERS) and thats their only game:D ,Hey if you want to call and raise anything just to catch then your% is way down of winning compared to mine:D Good luck to you, HOPE TO SEE YOU AT A TABLE!!:D

Everything you just said is exactly why you want the donks at your table!!! I don't understand what is hard to grasp there. Yes, sometimes they get lucky, and you suffer a bad-beat, but like you said, that luck runs out. It's perservering through the bad beats and playing smart poker that will eventually take all the donks money. So, if you don't mind, send your donks over to my table please. I could use the $$. :D

All im saying is this ,of course u want 1 or two fish at your table at the most, but theres nothing worse than a complete table of them which i run into alot. Its nearly impossible to beat luck and u r up against a heap full of luck playing against a table full of fish and at a cash table yes u can leave but in tourney play u cant do that. Just saying i would rather play against a table full of semi skilled players than a bunch of fish who go on draws, hunches and the likes.and no offense takem miss moderator ;)

I would love to run into a table of all complete donks. Please tell me where you find these. My guess is that you are not patient enough if donks are lucking out on you. Wait til you really have them crushed then make them pay.

man we need to let me -rep more often, might have to go spread around some more rep so I can -rep this donk some more.

I would absolutely love to sit with you anywhere and at any stakes, the style I play would absolutely crush you. The way you think is absolutely terrible and maybe that is why you seem to be losing against what you call bad players. Maybe its not the players that are that bad but the fact that they have totally figured you out and are outplaying you.

Seriously do you read what you write before you click the submit button, reread it. I want to sit with better players instead of bad ones, otherwards you either want to just spread money back and forth and create rake for the site. Good players usually never take money from eachother and just take it from the weak players. If for the rest of your life if you only sat with good players you would never win money....ever.

its funny how your introduction post went from hi cant wait to talk to you good players like myself, to now you all suck and are donkeys. You really don't know the level of players here yet because you haven't been here long enough. All you know is we dont agree with your logic so that makes you mad, and just like normal people when someone dont agree you go on the offensive and name call to try to make up for the obvious incorrect statements you have made. Here is suggestion, say maybe you guys have a point and try to save some face and build a decent rep on what is actully a terrific forum with alot of solid players on it.

there are actually players on this forum I would leave the table if the table only consisted of us, If I had to sit at a 6 max table with just the forum players I would see no point in it besides just for fun. There is no way I would sit at a CardsChat forum table to make money because honestly I dont think that is a profitable or +ev situation to be in.

thats like saying lets whip out our #%*$( and see who's is bigger.

honestly sir I could care less how much you have made, hell Chris Moneymaker made millions and he himself will tell you he wasnt that good when he won it.

As for me thinking im better then anyone I seriously doubt you will find a single thread where I claim to be better then anyone else. BUT I do have enough common sense to know that sitting with bad players is better then sitting with good players.

actually I'm willing to bet you have made more money then because I have this thing called a family that comes 1st in every single way and they take time away from poker which is fine by me. My son has karate 2 days a week and soccer 2 days a week and my wife is pregnant and I work a full time job i love. So as you see I dont have tons of time for poker which I consider a hobby and not a job.

I have alot of knowledge because I do study the game but I rarely watch ESPN because they edit alot and you don't get to see all the key hands just the action ones. I do watch HSP though.

going to do you favor and edit your post so you don't look dumb. Much better! That was a joke by the way no reason to go off on tirade again.
