great post, but this:

Quote:
What's the most that you've ever won in a day/week/month/year?

me: That's personal, I'd rather keep that to myself.
noob: What, don't be a dick, just tell me.
me: I'm not being a dick, I just don't want to tell you how much money I make at my job. I don't ask you how much you make for answering phone calls and playing minesweeper.
noob: That's different, you won the money.
me: I earned it. It's not like I'm playing the f**king lottery!
has you guys swapping douchebaggery imo

Re: 10 questions not to ask me about poker (beat: the stupid questions people ask me)

Yeah i gotta admit. When people talk about poker it tilts the **** out of me. The worst thing of all is actually when one idiot beginner is "teaching" another idiot beginner. I mean its good for us, but having to listen to them is OMFG kill me now. lol.

She said it was all over the news (she comes from a small town in Russia). And she wasn't kidding.

Safe to say, we didn't get to that 1st date.

And that "how much did you lose" bs...hate to admit, but my own mom even asked me this few times. It goes something like

Her: So, how much did you make last month? (i finally managed to teach her not to ask me that every day, because i explained about the variance and that one she understood for some reason).

Me: 20K

Her: But have much have you lost?

Me: What the hell, mom? I told you my net winnings, what do you mean, how much i lost? I won 20K.

Her: But you had to lose something, no? You told me yourself that you can't win everyday in poker.

Me: Ok, i lost 178k and won 208k.

5 stars thread, great job, OP!

If I give you £100 can you double it up for me?

me: Why would I waste my time playing with your money when I could play with my own money?
noob: Well, I'll give you a cut of the winnings then.
me: Can't you see how dumb this is? Why don't you go put in a long shift at the factory and give me a cut of your wages?
noob: Come on, it won't take you long. Just double it up for me quick.
me: Oh really, and what if I lose it?
noob: What? I thought you were good.
LMAO'd.

me: sigh
noob: So if you can't see the other person is poker just luck on the computer then?
me: siiiiiiiiiigh
This made me lol so hard

My conversation with a guy at work after he finds out i play poker
Noob: Yeah i used to play on full tilt, put on 50 bucks sat down, got QQ and got all in against some guy with AK, it was the worst beat of my life he hit an Ace AND a King i was so mad its so rigged. Never playing online again cause i would have known he was going to beat me if i could have saw his face.
Me:Kill yourself right now.
