As time goes by...

Firstly I want to respond to the anonymous comment left on my last post... firstly very good comment whoever you are (if you haven;t read it, it's here:

Why do you think its great that the bookmakers are backing this. dont get me wrong, i will miss the french and italians playing poker as they practically gave me money for nothing.

they really shouldnt try and disguise their motives as it just makes them look even greedier IMO. It would be a bit like tobacco companies saying 'hey everyone, its your right 2 smoke, lets overturn those anti-smoking laws'
Have you forgotten the gamblings companies are some of the biggest crooks out there, the cunts wont even bother making any legitimate effort to regulate their software and as they are based in gibraltar i doubt they contribute any tax to european countries. now they tell us to support them worming their way back in. fuck em, i say. greedy cunts have got a nerve if you ask me!

Yes of course it's for their own motives, but it suits our purspose as well, not to mention the monetary and political pressure they can also add and apply to the cause, something which can only ever help the cause.

As a poker player we can see the ever damaging effects of the player base getting smaller and smaller and more and more countries are cut off from the rest of the world. The EU is a Peice of Shit IMO, but they set a freetrade law and seeing as though all these fuckers are so keen on holding the UK to it's obligations financially, then we should be able to do the same when they choose to ignore the rules as they please.

Get the US back online (not looking great ATM, granted) and then force these fuckers to stop being a law unto themselves and try and throw some life back into the online Poker Sites.

As a player who has continually made money from this game for the last 7+ years, I am seeing the detrimental effects and surely you must too.

My Poker:

SHITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT. I just can NOT for the life in me get my mojo back to sit and fire up a grind session. I fire up the site, check out the tables, see it's full of regs and nits, think "fuck it" and fire up Football Manger 2010 instead. Sigh.

I did play a few MTT's the other night (sunday) just for a bit of a change of scenery and tbh it was laughable. I bust all 6 getting it in good/dominating and never winning an all in showdown. WTF can you do about that?. Started playing at 7.30pm and by 10pm was gone from all six. GTFO.

No idea where to go from here tbh. I know snake is havinga challenge to play full time for a month in January. I'll prolly follow that with interest and hopefully it might breathe a bit of life/enthusiasm back into me and my game. Right now playing poker is a long way down my list of things I actually enjoy.

Hope you all run good.
