What is it that ya do here, exactly?

"Can't you assholes see? I'm a people person, goddamn it!"

I'm not sure what I do here anymore. I still play poker, but I don't obsess about it like you need to in order to blog about it. Oh well, there are still developments.

Pauly has a new tournament series starting. Good and bad news.

Good: There's no score being kept, just a chance for bloggers to get together on PokerStars (all the other PokerStars tournaments have gone away) and sling some chips and some shit.

Bad: It's just another opportunity for the ASSHOLE Bloggers that seem to have taken over these tournaments to berate people who are just trying to have some fun and play some low stakes tourney with some friends.

If you feel the urge to begin to ridicule someone's play at these games, could you just please take your business elsewhere? Your petty little snarky comments all through the tournaments that turn into ABSOLUTE VITRIOL when you get knocked out are not appreciated in the least.

It's about time we had something back on PokerStars. I quit playing the blogger games because they all left to other sites. Now about that time selection. What's up with that?

Excellent post. One of the reasons I quit worrying about "blogger" tournaments was the More-holy-than-thou chat from some of the bloggers. They would berate for suckouts in the chat box and then even move over to their blog and continue the war. It's fairly retarded if you ask me.

The purpose of a blogger tournament should be for fun and maybe even a chance to chat with some great writers (poker or otherwise).

I'm going to start playing in the Saturdays with Dr. Pauly beginning next week (bowling tournament this week). I am pumped that it's a PLO format.

I think the mellow blogger crowd will find their way to PokerStars for this one.

Shouldn't the entry fee for this be $10+3, with the rake being measured in # of bong hits?
