    I never understood the appeal of online poker.
    playing with your friends is different.

    poker is fun because people get really anxious and uptight about winning and I just don't care because I'm drunk, but somehow I do alright. It just doesnt translate via 1nt3rn3tz.

    Uhm.. one of my good friends plays the big table at the casino and makes anywhere from $3000-8000 per week... but that's only because he's happy making $400-500 per sitting instead of trying to pull down a G+ every day. Then again, he lives for poker and that's really all he does.

    I can't be doing that shit, it'd give me ulcers.

    Word to wise: Get good at blackjack. You can make $200 into a $70,000 bankroll in 3 weeks time if you have enough self-control.

    Blackjack, eh. I mean I kind of count cards automatically now but even then I get marginal wins. You're only getting like a 1 to 2 percent edge over the house, maybe. Now if you have a team to work with and a big bank roll, that's where it's at.

    I suggest reading Brining Down the House. Short read, but really really awesome.
