<------------- Never been in a FCP CliqueRegarding the serious point its pretty much as BigDMcGee says.In addition the General Poker forum was still reasonably brisk until Black Friday. That pretty much killed the traffic dead. As a result most of the regular American posters disappeared overnight. I still post here occasionally but with only a few new topics a week, there isn't really much to talk about.
The Queens we use would not excite you.

Thanks Greenestreet for your kind words. Thanks as well BigD! I appreciate you taking the time to open up and be honest. Yeah, I figured I was probably dealing with a shell of "once was" here. Figures that I would start taking the game and community more seriously the same year Black Friday hits! But, like most, I still have hopes that we're just in a lull and as soon as the DOJ opens the doors I think we'll all be doing heel clicks. In the meantime, I'll just enjoy what ''is'' happening I guess. Playing home games, live tournaments.....heck, I even joined ClubWPT just to support one of the few shows that is still airing and maybe satellite in to one of their big tournaments some day. I know it's probably considered lame, but I really don't know where the safe, online cash games are anymore. Serg, the 'Canes rule bud. Sorry.

I think this forum should just turn into a sports forum, with a poker section.
good idea. Maybe reformat into just a few subforums and get rid of all the rest:PokerHockeyOther SportsGeneral Discussions/TopicsArchives

4. Somebody needs to take the reigns and post some real hands to dissect and review that we've played and discuss (I think this was done before a while back (Poker Quiz sect.), without looking, to some degree of success?). So many hands can be played out so many ways, it's often fun to see peoples experiences with each. I like to try and interject humor and straight laymen's terms with my experiences as opposed to I had 100bb and needed 34% to call blah blah blah math this, math that.... cause while that may be exciting to 3 out of 100 people, the rest of us just enjoy the good old psychological and straightforward approach to the game! (Not saying I dont use math when I play, but I have a simplistic mathematical approach to pot odds, EV, etc. so I keep the fun factor during long stretches in tourneys....cash games I might inject my mathlete skills a little more, but only when necessary.)
Feel free to glance through my threads in NLHE Strat. There are some fun ones.

I will attempt to answer your questions seriously since you took the time to make a thoughtful, serious post.
This was pretty comprehensive except you forgot the small matter about the vast majority of us not being able to play online poker any more. Even 4BB has a fraction of the strategy talk that it used to.Plus, all of the good sports talk has moved over to spoolios now.

Yea, as BigD stated that was pretty much a given. Most forums in all industries have went the way of the dinosaurs since twitter and other social media have gone viral. I was just stating some ideas not based on market conditions to try and get more involvement here.

True story: Jerry was the herald of the exodus. The way he was at the table one minute and an empty seat the next minute is very much like how most of the posters have disappeared from FCP since that time.
