wow, i saw alf posted in here and i was wondering why the hell he'd do that.now i know.gross, man, gross. this is a friendly league. if you were against some random guy in a HU sng, this would be one thing, but as far as i can tell, this is actually a league among players with some mutual respect and dignity. if this happens to you again, PLEASE just sit out and trade blinds so the records actually reflect play and not internet connection problems.
I'm not going to lie, I would love the money that would come from going deep into the playoffs, but the money is really not the reason that I'm playing these. If I was looking for the best return on my money, I definitely would not be looking to play against fcpers, particularly the ones that had the posts/background and cash to make it into this league. So far I've been lucky in that I have 3 awesome teammates and have done well enough not to let them down too much. Yup, I want to win, and enjoy friendly smack talk, and while I wouldn't hesitate to use any advantage I could in a tournament with strangers, I treat this more like a home game. I do it for the fun, not to screw over my friends. There's a reason we have default rules - sure, if the guy doesn't show up for a half hour start time, the game is yours. But until then, don't be a prick.
