A little bird told me that the amount of money that is necessary to purchase goods and services is the same, irregardless of how much money you actually have. Hence, $12000 buys the same, whether you have a hundred dollars or a million. If that is not a relevant fact to you (not YOU, just anyone), then you are playing poker for competition, ego, etc, and not for money. that's fine, but you should say as much, and not use money as a means of measure then.
uh, what?

if i'm right, doesn't that by definition make the people who are calling me names and insulting me wrong?
I didn't say you were right, I just said that whether or not you were it's beside the point.But let's assume you were right. It's still very possible to be right AND ego-driven/narcissistic...or even just kind of an asshole about it. You don't think so?

Why do you assume it's an insult? We're all here for narcissistic or ego-driven reasons. To say that you come to comment on your rail threads out of generosity is just an insult to those of us who understand the meaning of the word generous.We're all here for our own selfish reasons. Like I said, let's not pretend you're any different.

Questioning you and insulting you are two different things. You get lots of insults, but I would suggest they're easily ignored. When someone with 12 posts says "omg BK is sooo lucky I'd pwn him HU for rollz!KO:W" you can ignore that. When people with at least some serious intention question you, you can ignore them too, but at least be aware people like Chrinestone aren't just doing it to be dicks or show off their e-penises. Moreover, don't confuse the two, because it makes you look silly.

i dunno, read it again if you need to. everything except the "little bird" part. that was just gay. oops, i typed out a restatement anyways:happiness can be derived from several things. in the case of poker, that is either from winning the maximum amount of money, or other, less quantifiable things, like competition, winning, accomplishment, etc. you consistently imply it is the money that drives you. however you also suggested we needed more money to compare our feelings to yours. i am pointing out that a Plasma TV costs $2000, whether or not I have $2200 or a million bucks. Money should not cause happiness in and of itself, but because of what it can be used for. You "should" be happy you won $12000 worth of goods and services, though disappointed by not winning $57000 (whatever) more worth of them. It isn't a question of relativity. By suggesting that, you are implying your goals are more towards thwarting competition, working hard to accomplish goals, etc. That's fine, since you obviously have more than enough money to meet your expenses. However if that is the case, you should rarely mention numbers, bankroll, winnings, etc, which you consistently do.p.s. i'm really not as serious about this as i sound, just interested in the viewpoint of someone in a somewhat extreme and unusual situation.
Long signatures are really annoying.

actually, i would argue that on average, i was significantly unlucky for the first 8 or so months of the year, and this is just variance catching up to me. i've played 1350 tourneys so far this year online, this late run is just evening out for the earlier part of the year when i was struggling personally.you would probably improve exponentially as a poker player if you stopped thinking and talking about luck so much. it's really an illusion.

uh yea that's the basic jist of my argument earlier in the thread... i can't figure out why someonee would open a thread titled "bkice 1/4 in sunday mulligan" if they didn't want to read about me finishing in the top 4 in the sunday mulligan... why would you open the thread and then start complaining that a dude is bitching about bad beats? did you click on this thread expecting some top quality political debate or maybe a roundup of this week in the nfl? seriously?
And...

View Postastros11ss, on Tuesday, September 25th, 2007, 1:07 PM, said:

my point is that everything evens out over time... you can say "oh i ran bad for the first 8 months of the year" or "oh i ran sick for the month of september" but the fact is it all evens out over time. you have spent a lot of time in this thread complaining that i got lucky so many times in this tourney and that i remember everytime i get unlucky but forget when i get lucky and all this nonsense, but if you just stopped thinking about luck and just focused on the quality of the decisions you were making, you might move up in limits significantly faster than you are currently progressing.

kind of. basically pointing out that if he isn't just hoarding money, it is either the main cause of his happiness, or it isn't. if it is, then $12K is a ton, and he should be happy. if it isn't, stop talking about money. i'm sure he will point out most people bring up money that he wins, not him himself, but that's invalid. in some form or another, he talks about it far more than necessary.i do want to point out that playing for fame, competition, etc is not something i'm suggesting is problematic. he has a ton of money relative to his expenses. there are other reasons poker is fun/interesting. if he wants to play largely for those reasons, then that's a reasonable choice.

why do you assume it's a black and white thing? i don't think i would play poker if there was no monetary reward, but at the same time, i would never do something just to make money, i have to enjoy doing it and derive some utility from it. how about you just think about the "money" in terms of buyins - that beat cost me about 100 buyins, which is a gigantic # relative to anyone's bankroll, regardless of whether you're playing $5 or $500 tourneys.

Fascinating, so to expound (hope you don't mind), you're saying that Bkice has all 12 months of the year to nurture his talents and one hand shouldn't bring him down after all the highs (yes play on words) he's accomplished these past 12 months. A simply astute analysis with a touch of brevity. I love it. We'll see what pele_br has to say though. He may have a point you'd like to consider. Pele_br, the floor is yours.
