Smith & Wesson beats Four Aces…unless you’re playing online
I loves me some poker. I play in a friendly little weekly No Limit Texas Hold’em game, mostly for the competition and bragging rights, and a little bit for the week’s worth of gas money I get if I win. I’ve played online a bit, but not in paid money games, because I don’t really like playing online. It just isn’t the same as sitting at the table, looking your opponent in the face trying to spot a tell.
Now there’s another reason not to play online. There are some accusations floating around the (fairly large) online poker community that one gaming site has been complicit in a cheating scam.
I’ll stick with face-to-face games when I’m playing for money, thank you very much. That way if I catch a cheat, I can shoot him with my pocket derringer (that’s an old west riverboat gambler joke, there, folks).
