Things I hate about poker
I don't hate poker. I love to play it. It is entertaining. It is challenging. However, it also makes me want to punch something.......at times. I am trying to control that urge. I know it is just a game. BUT...........here are the things I hate: The fake chatter. The pretend platitudes. The constant, annoying, repetitive acronyms. You know,,,,,,gg, ty, gh,,,,,,I mean, come on. Some people do it AFTER EVERY HAND. It is just like everyone getting a ribbon for participation. IT MEANS NOTHING after awhile. Sure, you are trying to be nice, which is fine. But NOT.......EVERY.......HAND. And I will do it too. I just find myself getting more and more annoyed at seeing it. If you have to say something, mix it up. Talk about the weather or something, sheesh. The pompous person. We all know at least one player like that. They play like an idiot, get lucky, and then think they are something special. I would be ok to lose if they would admit their idiocy. To quote Dean Wormer in Animal House...."Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son". The fat and drunk part is assumed by me. Now me, I will try things. New ways to bet, just to see how players react. I don't, however, think I am a great player. I don't like the analytics and percentages. Makes poker too much like work. Or math. I bet by instinct....and feel. The donkey. Now, a disclaimer on the donkey thing. There are many types of players. And many styles of playing. One persons donkey is another person's genius. And this is a fun league, so there are inexperienced players. However, if you want to win, you chances of doing that go up markedly if you try to improve each day. Don't keep doing the same things.....like, instead of checking, you bet say,,,,,,um,,,50 chips when the pot is already 2000. What are you trying to accomplish with that bet? It is usually one of the following: (a) a weak hand, (b) a drawing hand (c) a strong hand or (d) you don't know how to play. Have a clue here. You can accomplish the same thing by checking to the next player, thereby saving your chips for later hands. That weak 50 bet is a losing play. You will NEVER find winning poker players playing that way. You may get lucky occasionally, but overall a bad play. If I was playing in a big money tournament, I would love for people to play like that. Gives me a chance to improve my hand cheaply. However, in these games for chips and tokens, (with their low monetary value) I will raise sometimes just to see what will happen. That is not something I would normally do in a tourney where I have to pay my own money to enter. These chips and tokens you win should be invested back into the poker site by donating or by sponsoring more poker tourneys. Winning should not be your goal. It should be somewhere to play poker with people you enjoy playing with. Give til it hurts ;) So, do yourselves a favor. Don't be a phony, pompous donkey. It doesn't make you friends or chips. It just makes you a time waster. (Not that there is anything wrong with that). The object was not to offend, but to get you to improve as a poker player and a person. I, however, am an old f**k. And I will not change. So let me have it in the remarks.... I can take it. Source of all gifs is giphy.com

The crew of Lucksacks and Scorum poker players------my take on their skills
I have been playing on scorumpoker and lucksacks long before they were combined. As such, I have seen most poker players come and go. I know who does what and to whom. Poker-wise anyway. Their poker skills are varied. So this post is my notes and takes on a few of the regulars........... TUCK......ALIAS: BUCK -------Tuck is hard to figure out for me. He can be a conservative player most of the time. I think he is comfortable with that. I think that is really him. However, he goes off on a side street sometimes. Probably bored. Will play wild and bet same. This is just a temporary thing, mostly. You could beat him when he is in those moods. I only engage with my best hands. Do anything else at your own peril, unless you are feeling lucky. BETHALEA.....ALIAS: BETH, BINDIB, THUGALEA, AND OTHERS-----Bethalea is a wild girl. She plays everything by feel (wink,wink). I don't think she plans to play that way, just goes with the flow. My ultimate compliment....doesn't play like a girl. Can be beat. Actually wants to get beat sometimes. Probably because she has many things going on, like keeping everything going on the poker site. Engaging her will get you some big hands or bust. She will call you and raise you with nothing. CHOPS316......Plays conservatively. Very sound player. Knows how others like to bet and will not chase very often. Hard to trick. If he bets big, and you want to call, you had better have a good hand. POTPLUCKER.......Very hard to pin down on a hand. Likes to do the fancy betting....777 or 1111......number combinations with three or four of the same numbers. I just ignore that and look for the bet percentage after the flop......He will very seldom go all in with nothing or a small percentage draw......however, will take chances. Especially if he feels weakness. Use check-raises if you detect weakness in him. Make him commit his hand. He is a very smart player and plays the player against him well. THEBULL.....ALIAS: SEVENDST19------Solid player. Knows how others play. When he bets out first, he will bet big, usually a pot bet after the flop. But only if he has something. If you call him, he will check to see what you will do and make you give up more chips. If he goes all in after all five community cards are out, he usually has the best hand. INTHENOW........A cautious player. Will let you bet out and then call or fold. Doesn't make wild moves. To get chips from him, you have to bet big if you have a good hand. He will call if he needs a card. KRYPTOKEEPER....ALIAS: CELSIUS100----That's me! I like to think I am very hard to pin down on a hand. I am a solid conservative player most of the time. I am comfortable with that. However, I have low tolerance for players who play every hand. Especially with what I call the limp in Louie's. They will limp in every hand and try to get lucky with the flop. I want them to bet more with their low percentage cards. I will raise when they bet the minimum. Periodically. If I do it all the time, they will limp in with premium cards and try to trap me. You have to get their chips before someone else does so make them play those weak cards when you feel the time is right. The percentages are usually with you. I also try to play a wide variety of hands. I love suited cards, so watch out for my flushes! My most glaring weakness is I am not patient. I also play by feel. I know what some players like to do. I know which players might fold. And I also know which players will call my raises, so I don't usually bluff them. Poker is a great game.......Although luck plays a part in poker, you won't win many real tournaments relying on luck. However, this is a fun poker league and luck is a factor. The only way to learn is to get in there and try. I have given you some help in trying to beat some of the top poker players in Lucksacks and scorumpoker. Use it to your advantage!
