    I can't believe Mitt Romney withdrew from the race.
    He had no shot at winning. May as well save some monies.

    Tell that to Ross Perot twenty years ago.

    Ross Perot had a swimming pool full of gold coins, so uh, it didn't really matter to him.

    Playing Hold'em casually is really pretty boring, I think that games like Midnight Baseball, Pass the Trash, High-Low Chicago, and so on are all much more fun to play with friends, partly because of the luck factor and it leading to great stories. Hell, even Acey-Deucey is fun that way.

    Yeah, celery -- you're the guy who likes to jump to conclusions and hold strident opinions on stuff you know nothing about.

    Power is a game of managed risk. If you're not playing for something with value, then the risk is skewed. Play is overly aggressive, there is no longer any reason to bluff (which is, y'know, the majority of strategy), and even if you do bluff there is no reason not to call your opponent on it every time. Playing just for 'points' or chips messes up the strategy. If you want to just "play cards" just get some rolls of change and do penny ante. If you're too cheap to spend $20 on a night of fun with your friends then maybe you should just stay home and watch Scrubs reruns.

    Yeah, I'm not really a card-player, and when I play I refuse to play with anything in dollar amounts, just the nickel-dime-quarter stuff. To me, it's mostly the social aspect that's really enjoyable, and I think that losing anything more than that bowl of pocket change you have in your room really ruins that. So if you play cards seriously (and I do understand that, as a game of bluffing and so on, Texas Hold'em succeeds) you probably don't wanna play with me.

    My issue with Texas Hold'em isn't with the game itself. It's an okay ruleset - a little boring, but not too bad.

    My issue is that it's gotten way out of control popular because of TV and online poker. It's like a song that's gotten played out on the radio; it's like people claiming they like hip-hop when the only hip-hop album they own is Quality Control. If Texas Hold'em is what got you into the game, that's fine. Just don't act like a little bitch if somebody suggests a hand of (gasp omg i'm getting vapors) seven-card stud or something.

    No Feral, I have done the majority of my card-playing for real, hard, cash -- not extravagant amounts, but $20 was pretty standard. It pissed me off when we'd play dealer's choice, and some smart-ass would call some stupid game that had nothing to do with strategy, and everything to do with who got what wilds, and which drunk asshole was going to call no matter what, thus giving one player a huge stack of chips earned on a hand that was basically equivalent to pulling the handle on a slot machine, which they were then able to ride through the games that actually allow one to manage one's risk.

    Baseball, high-low games, bizarre stud variations, some retarded stuff like "elevator" or whatever weird, made up, silly games there are -- those are for people who like basing their games on luck. I like my cards with a mixture of strategy and luck. Fucking "nuts" or "guts" or "drop 'em" or whatever it's called -- hate that one. A good rule of thumb is that if it takes you longer to explain the rules than it does to deal, I'm not interested in playing.
