Luck plays a large part in individual hands, but the game is self is entirely based in statistics and reading your opponents while not letting them know what you have. There's a reason that year after year you see many of the same faces at the final table of the world series of poker, despite thousands of talented entrants.
Luck plays into poker as it does into sports. Only affects hand by hand action, as it does in sports by goals/points/etc. Only skill gives you that long term profit with poker as it does championships with sports. In conclusion, sounds like OP got ran over by his mother in law, and fails at bankroll management
yeah, but sometimes the way people hit effects every player. If grandma's hitting on all her 17's and getting a ten, then the dealer gets a 21 after drawing when he should have gotten the 10 that made the dealer bust....then she comes around and wins. I've seen people get preeeeetty upset about their poker etiquette. /
Sounds like you need to show some courage and ask your Mother in law to move out before you become enemies or you loose your self respect completely!
I would say your being a hypocrite telling 8 that they don't know what they're talking about when at 17, you most definitely haven't had any experiences kicking someone out of your own home. As for telling you to shut up, I feel it was necessary, as you felt the need to unnecessarily curse out 8.
66 - If I knew that, I wouldn't care in the least bit. I couldn't care less if you thought I put xxx as a reference to the extreme level of pornography. 74 - I'm going to be honest and admit I don't know what straight edge is. It must not be good, though. Meh. I can't change my username, even if I wanted to.
