Nice thread man, east coast looks soft right? How does it compare to Vegas or Cali in your oppinion?
Dude it's like soft and stuff and junk. I put the chips in the pot and like the dealer pushes be back some chips. I tips him all my green chips, because I hate the color green.
Seriously tho, low-stakes poker is soft everywhere. The average joe in the northeast is certainly a lot more educated than the average joe in Vegas. It depends on your style. If you are really just a value player Vegas is awesome, because you are just sitting waiting for hands and getting paid off by drunks.
If you are the kind of player that would rather manipulate your opponents. You will prefer games that allow for these kind of moves. You can't out play a moron, you can just wait for him to dump his bounty. You can slice a thinking player to bits if you know how he is thinking.
I totally agree with everything you said in that post that people are saying is frightening. Also I'm obligated to mention that, though a comedy, Idiocracy is pretty much a perfect summary of where we're headed, IMO.
