Seriousy, Why?

Why is poker so negative sometimes?
Why does it take a whole year to win so little and a few moments to lose so much?
Why did durrrr lose $3million in one week now will spend the next months chasing it?
Why are there so many poker players that once had but now have not?
Why is there a thin line between success and failure?
Why is positive thinking a lot weaker than negative thinking?
why do you lose a lot more on the river than you win?
Why are the cards shuffled, hence random, then I still keep seeing K-6 offsuit every other hand?
Why does Phil Ivey lose a ton at the pits yet he's still a millionare?
Why do I lose a little and I am broke because of that?
Why does Isildur1 keep catching cards and grinders never catch a break?
Why is the way up so tough yet the road down is blinding fast?
Why will some 2+2'ers read this and have the standard "cool story bro", "lock it up", "ban" etc comment?
Why is the definition of "******" = doing the same thing and expecting different result yet poker players that claim to be sane continue to make the same mistakes and expect a different outcome?
Why can't 21 outs win more times than not?
Why do gamblers put up a hapyy fasad when they are really hurting inside?
Why can't somebody that buys in for $40k on a table ship a few $5 to railbirds?
Why will a gambler never donate a penny to a charitable cause but continue to lose millions to rich casinos?
Why did Phil Ivey say it doesn't hurt him to lose a million but will never give me a million if I told him that I would invest into my future and make the world a better place?
Why do we gamblers only quit when we have no more to lose?

For the greater good of society, poker needs to die

Why do I make this inflammatory statement on a poker player's forum? It should be pretty obvious: the poker fantasy that is being sold to young people, that by playing a zero sum game which produces absolutely nothing, you can drop out of college, achieve instant fame and fortune and never have to do an honest day's work in your life, is just another version of the toxic "get rich or die trying" message that results in millions of destitute, wasted lives.

I'm optimistic that we have turned the page on the Moneymaker-Bush poker boom era and that such times will never return. Having gone back to college myself, I am now devoting my free time to developing intelligent software to defeat online poker, with the ultimate goal of destroying the industry so that other intelligent people will realize that they need to find something more productive to do with their time. Once you kick the habit, I think you'll find that poker is an incredibly boring way to spend your time. For those of you who still find poker interesting, take a look at uneducated, perpetually broke old-schoolers like Eskimo Clark and Sam Grizzle, and realize that that's where you may be headed. Anway, wish me luck in destroying this useless industry!

Re: Seriousy, Why?

Why is poker so negative sometimes? jealousy/tilt
Why does it take a whole year to win so little and a few moments to lose so much? tilt/rake
Why did durrrr lose $3million in one week now will spend the next months chasing it? says who?
Why are there so many poker players that once had but now have not? blow
Why is there a thin line between success and failure? because that thin line is often one card
Why is positive thinking a lot weaker than negative thinking? because you can't control what card comes out, but you can control how you play the cards you have
why do you lose a lot more on the river than you win? because you're bad
Why are the cards shuffled, hence random, then I still keep seeing K-6 offsuit every other hand? because you're bad
Why does Phil Ivey lose a ton at the pits yet he's still a millionare? full tilt/cash games
Why do I lose a little and I am broke because of that? because you're bad and you don't know what BRM is
Why does Isildur1 keep catching cards and grinders never catch a break? false
Why is the way up so tough yet the road down is blinding fast? tilt/rake, you already asked this
Why will some 2+2'ers read this and have the standard "cool story bro", "lock it up", "ban" etc comment? because it's a wall of text/full of whiny comments/overall bad
Why is the definition of "******" = doing the same thing and expecting different result yet poker players that claim to be sane continue to make the same mistakes and expect a different outcome? wot
Why can't 21 outs win more times than not? perception
Why do gamblers put up a hapyy fasad when they are really hurting inside? image
Why can't somebody that buys in for $40k on a table ship a few $5 to railbirds? What the **** kind of obligation do they have to ship you $5? STOP BEGGING FOR $$$ AND DEPOSIT AND USE BRM YOU ****
Why will a gambler never donate a penny to a charitable cause but continue to lose millions to rich casinos? degeneracy
Why did Phil Ivey say it doesn't hurt him to lose a million but will never give me a million if I told him that I would invest into my future and make the world a better place? because there are millions of better ways to donate if he chooses to do so, and what obligation does he have?
Why do we gamblers only quit when we have no more to lose? because you don't know what bankroll management and tilt control are

Why did durrrr lose $3million in one week now will spend the next months chasing it? He came up against a player who was better or who had a good run of cards or both.
Why are there so many poker players that once had but now have not? They didn't keep improving to stay ahead of the game or didn't practice solid BRM.
Why is there a thin line between success and failure? If there wasn't there wouldn't be so many bad players playing and the games wouldn't be a profitable for the good players.
Why is positive thinking a lot weaker than negative thinking? Depends on the person doing the thinking.
why do you lose a lot more on the river than you win? Because I bluff too much and make lots of hopeful calls.
Why are the cards shuffled, hence random, then I still keep seeing K-6 offsuit every other hand? I think this might be an exaggeration?
Why does Phil Ivey lose a ton at the pits yet he's still a millionare? Contrary to popular belief it is possible to be a +EV player at craps. Some guy built his own craps table in this garage and practiced throwing dice for about 20 years and he eventually came up with a technique that gave him a small edge on the game. Phil Ivey uses a similar technique when he plays craps so perhaps he knows that guy and has spent a lot of time practising or whatever.
Why do I lose a little and I am broke because of that? No BRM
Why does Isildur1 keep catching cards and grinders never catch a break? Either he don't do it as often as you think or he just had a lucky streak
Why is the way up so tough yet the road down is blinding fast? See above
Why will some 2+2'ers read this and have the standard "cool story bro", "lock it up", "ban" etc comment? Because of this question.
Why is the definition of "******" = doing the same thing and expecting different result yet poker players that claim to be sane continue to make the same mistakes and expect a different outcome? Small sample size.
Why can't 21 outs win more times than not? It does.
Why do gamblers put up a hapyy fasad when they are really hurting inside?
Same reason non-gamblers do.
Why can't somebody that buys in for $40k on a table ship a few $5 to railbirds? They can, they choose not to.
Why will a gambler never donate a penny to a charitable cause but continue to lose millions to rich casinos? Some do.
Why did Phil Ivey say it doesn't hurt him to lose a million but will never give me a million if I told him that I would invest into my future and make the world a better place? Losing isn't the same as giving away.
Why do we gamblers only quit when we have no more to lose? Becasue we have nothing else to gamble with.
Why didn't this kill as much time as I hoped it would?
