You sound very negative!I'm sure this challenge is NOT meaningless to Daniel. Financially yes, but I'm sure he gets great satisfaction, like most poker players, in achieving his goals. No matter how large or small.Iím aiming to achieve something similar, a true challenge (without the 100+ waiting list and have-a-go heros!). Even if Daniel doesnít need to prove himself at micro stakes, Iím sure he feels the same satisfaction I do, with a nice consistant positive profit graph!
That's cool 10k hero, I wish you good luck! My point is that for someone like you, there is alot more meaning attached. For the record I like and admire Daniel and love the game of poker, it has been very good to me. Obviously, I like and trust live poker much more than online. Even with that, the local cardroom I play at which is less than 5 minutes from home, has lost alot of it's regular players in the last few months, so I have to drive an extra hour to the local casino for a regular game. Poker is a great game but the average player is just not talented enough to turn a long term profit and should view it as a form of entertainement. In the last 10 years I have played regularly in Florida and Michigan in Hold em and Omaha hi lo games at least 4 days a week - in those games I am the biggest winner by far but I have only seen 5 or 6 others who I believe to be consistent winners out of hundreds of people. Even when it hurts my bankroll, if a fellow player asks me for advice I will tell them to cut down on how often they play and find other hobbies if they are a losing player -- again good luck to you with your goals.
