RE: Poker in the Non-Poker World

Hmm, I tend to think poker players should try to step out of their little-big poker worlds every so often, if only to keep a check on reality. But yikes, maybe not … when a Seattle columnist stepped into a game to get some old-white-men takes on the presidential election … well let’s just say at least a few players behaved like jive-ass crackas weren’t exactly great ambassadors for the game.

(But hey, real people, real life, right? Isn’t being able to take money from the sketchy part of why we play?)

    Guys like that are exactly what’s wrong with poker. Reminds me of the crowd of beer-guzzling meth addicts that used to hang out at DPO. (If you know, you know.) No offense.

    C’mon now, James … I think that’s probably America, not poker, right?

    OK, laughing … because when I first read your comment I thought you said “beer-guzzling math addicts”.
