Reflections on Perspective

Economy doesn't seem that bad, prices are lower, there are bargains in stock market if you are sitting on cash. Things seem good .... until you are the one that is unemployed.

Poker is similar and I apparently committed faux paus.

Apparently once caught by a chaser it is considered rude not to immediately fold even when more than half stack is already committed.

My "sincere" apologies Tony.

Some evidently think pot odds and pot committed only relates to a narco bust on Cops...

Not quite sure how you're way behind until the sixth street? Dude sucked out on you & you resucked. Am I wrong?

Totally got a great gig for you to make a little coin at!

Stand up Poker comedy !

It'll sell I tell you. It'll sell!

I was on the losing end of two HUGE hands last night. In both cases, it was just funny that I knew I was way ahead, but still hoped to get un-lucky.

Maybe Tony is another one of Hoy's many cheat accounts?
