Been pondering this a while and I don't really know where I am about it.
One of the greatest things about poker, online and off, is that you can be anybody from anywhere. But stuff is rolling around in my brain about gender and age. Me for example. 48, white chick. Well, maybe not a chick, but I *feel* like a chick
Anyway, what got me thinking this time are recent posts (on ...some other sites) about multi-accounting in big tourneys and the numbers seemed to line up like younger vs older in regards to the ethics, with some/many of the younger going with it being no big deal and some/many of the older on the other side. And I'm generalizing here, sorry for that, but I'm trying to keep it brief.
It did seem, though, like they were coming down on two sides of the fence without a lot of middle ground. I guess I'm wondering several things...
Does "old-school" put one at a disadvantage online? And by old-school I mean one player to a hand, etc. Should 'elder' players hang out in a communal environment and coach and sweat and ghost too? May be a silly question, but cool visual --no? Eleven of us hangin' out, tossin' back cold ones...
Or is that how it already is and I'm just out of the loop? I don't know. Thoughts?
