so you are trying to figure out a way to cheat and feel good about yourself.

cliffs:

OP sucks at poker.
OP can't understand how some people are good at poker.
OP wants free $5 from rich players.

When I was 12 I used to lay in bed and wish that everybody in the world would send me a penny. I got over that, though.

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

ban
i dno man these answer are pretty stupid too :S
