Hypothetically speaking, if Internet poker died off, or became illegal, what would you do in its place? Of course some of you would still have live play, but some of us are not so fortunate..I think this topic is worth discussing....

Um post on here as if I knew what I was talking about.Wait that is what I am doing........ sigh :club:
"In the language typical of an IPCC report, one might say that the radiative forcing created by Climategate and Glaciergate strongly suggest this is very likely to bring about cataclysmic melting of the organization within the next portion of the current decadal period. The words "very likely" in IPCC risk assessment terms mean a 90% or greater probability that something will happen. As it looks now, the IPCC is burnt toast and unless it is overhauled fast there's a 90% probability the climate-change political machine is going to come crashing down."

im still not sold that many of these people that get these big online scores are winners when it comes to the live game, which, by the way, is real poker.

I have had the time to do alot of things that I would have pushed aside to play poker instead. Quitting internet poker has freed up so much time I realize at this point I was pretty pathetic. Now, when I do have time to go and play, my wife says,"Go!!Play!! Have fun!! I will see you later!" Life is alot more balanced without online poker constantly calling my name.
So much for a comeback.
