Poker is a big deal these days. Heck, ESPN thinks it’s a sport. They show tournaments all the time and I like to watch them. What we have are millennial frat boys who have decided this is their career and older “thrill seekers” with too much money & all of them think they alone have figured everything else. As a Vegas person, I’ve seen it many, many times. The boys sit down at the table, drink themselves into oblivion and then wonder where they left their car after they’ve lost everything in an hour. But now they get to do it on a world stage, on not quite live TV.
I just watched a match with 2 frats and a fogey. The frats got lucky with the cards and the fogey got cocky. Everytime he bluffed, he casually threw in his chips. If he had something, he’d call too fast & push stacks in. It took the frats too long to figure that out. Even I noticed that.
The frat that one has lifetimes earnings of 17 million. I think that’s probably gross. I wonder what his net is.
