Re: Eight Deadly Sins of Poker

Not bad I suppose, but sounds like the author has never 24-tabled for a living. Here's how I would've written these 10 years ago when I drove myself to the brink mass-tabling.

---

1. Lust: Chasing a delusional dream that by rule is less likely to occur when a player concentrates more on table tiling than skill improvement.

2. Gluttony: Gorging oneself on an influx of new players and volume-based rewards while being inconsiderate of the bigger picture.

3. Greed/Avarice: Negotiating final table deals using methods copied from chat boxes that big name tournament pros used to maximize payouts vs. n00bs... even when you know you're not that +EV.

4. Sloth: Contriving a pulley system with a plastic bucket so you can lower it from you third story window so you don't have to get dressed and go downstairs to greet the pizza delivery guy.

5. Anger/Wrath: Busting out of a tournament via suckout, then entertaining hateful thoughts related to being a fly on the wall when losing players have to deal with the consequences of telling people they're busto.

6. Envy: Feeling sorry for yourself and attempting to convince yourself that the reason you're still stuck at low stakes is because you're unluckier than others when you know damn well you're not putting in adequate effort towards improvement.

7, Pride/Vanity: Assuming your current winrate is sustainable long-term with the same skill level, and getting your rocks off to being a successful "pro" instead of realizing you've simply entered a business that temporarily has a low entry barrier to profitable play.

8. Thirst: Drinking ten 1-liter bottles of Gatorade every night while grinding and waking up parched.

---

I changed my tune obviously once I got out of the game and of course this isn't how I always felt or acted, but can I still get a t-shirt?

Lol, who hasn’t I think it’s important for the game. You need that influx of new players with all these bad little habits.
