How Much do you like Pain?
Question of the Ages unsplash Yes, You Do I'm going to do a little deductive reasoning here, with the full knowledge that what I'm about to propose isn't, in fact, the exact truth for every single one of you... but it is true. How much is your personal truth may differ, but if you're here, you enjoy pain. #1: Cryptocurrency If you're here, you are some how connected to and/or interested in Crypto. When the crypto you've invested in goes down, it hurts. When it goes up, it feels good. If you stick around, there is some part of that back-and-forth that excites you on some level. #2: Betting Same thing here; if you're here, on Scorum, my wager is that you liked and immediately saw the value in coupling a Sports Blogging site with the ability to make bets on said sports! It's brilliant in it's conception! And all of us who enjoy betting know there's a bite there... there's that moment where it's all on the line and you don't know if you're going to win or lose that is a total rush of excitement. The win is the best culmination of this feeling, but you HAVE to be about to lose in order for it to feel so good when you win. #3: Poker Now we're down to the piece that REALLY matters; poker. I was reading an article on Pokernews.com earlier, and in an interview between Chad Holloway and Antonio Esfandiari, Holloway asked, "What is an unusual habit or an absurd thing that you love?" to which Esfandiari answered, "Pain at the poker table. Even if I am at the receiving end of it. There's just nothing quite like it." which, of course, led to the inspiration of this post. Because it HURTS, when someone sucks out on the river on your Aces. When you math people do all teh maths, and you're ready to win, and someone has double caught their 7 - 2 off. And if you're like me, you just can't quit it, because on some level you love the pain. Once again, thanks for supporting the online poker community attached to this blockchain by upvoting this post and giving a witness vote for @bro-delegate! Thanks!

Poker ethics
Poker vs friends. Any kind of poker. The same as with any other game, is a great played when played with friends. When we play with friends. The rules are often skewed for the benefit of weaker players in the game. The same for playing online games with friends. Altering the rules to accommodate a beginner. Maybe a young person you are trying to teach a game to, all the rules all at once might be too much for them to take in. You may play a simpler game of scrabble. You might play fish with half the deck. There are many thing which can be done to accommodate different things. With poker it is pretty much the same. There are variations of poker which can be played which may help new comers to the game evolved their game. These are the rules the game is played by though and not the ethics the game is played within. These should not be changed. Some guidelines which should be held to when playing poker. Talking about your hand when a game is in play is a No No. The main reason for this is what you speak can influence the game. It can influence the play of other players still in the hand. When you are not in the hand it is a bigger No No to talk about cards you may have had or comment on the plays at hand. Let us suppose you have 7 2 off suit. You fold pre-flop and three 7's come out on the table. Voicing any comment here is a no no. Letting other plays know the fourth 7 is gone can influence the play of other people still in the hand (or prevent them from acting). None of us win all of the time. The statistics say we can't. If you happen to lose, do it gracefully. Some of the abuse I have seen over the years thrown at players that knocked someone out of the tournament. Just leaves me to think, do those people have the mentality to play poker. They may have all the statistics down pat on what hand can win what percentage of the time. The reaction when they lose suggests their mentality cannot handle the same statistics. Poker show. A show is held in the Buddy Up Server in Discord to assist beginners with learning the game. https://discord.gg/3d5H3K8 Players of all levels are welcome to come and discuss poker. The show generally lasts for 1 hour. Starting time: 8 PM UK time. (7 PM UTC) Suggested topics this week. Value of Hands in Poker. Starting hands. Position. Bet sizing. Strategy's. Re raising. Variations of poker. Other topics are welcomed to be brought up and discussed too. If you have a topic you would like some time set to discuss this can be arranged for one of the shows. Poker games are played on The Scorumpoker We hope soon to add to a new game to the line up of weekly games.
