    Default Why poker fucks with our heads.

    It's the master that beats you for bringing in the paper, then gives you a mikbone for peeing on the carpet.

    I have a serious answer:

    - when we win, we feel that justice is served, equilibrium is maintained; everything is as it should be.

    - when we lose, WTF SO FUCKING UNFAIR WHAT KIND OF DONK TWAT MAKES THAT MOVE HOW COULD I POSSIBLY BE SO UNLUCKY OMG

    Perspective is king - -

    When I hit my 2 or 3 outer, "I still had outs til the river!" - - when I don't, "that's poker"

    When my hand holds up, "What does he expect? He only had a 3 outer!!!!" - - when it doesn't, "how can he possibly make that call?!?!?"

    Sometimes I'm ahead, sometimes I'm behind, but I make $$ (ideally) by forcing villain to overpay for my cards when he really needs to be folding.

    Bad beats don't happen to me. I forever run goot. Bwahaha.
    It's not what's inside that counts. Have you seen what's inside?
    Internal organs. And they're getting uglier by the minute.

    LHE is a game where your skill keeps you breakeven until you hit your rush of random BS.

    Nothing beats flopping quads while dropping a duece!

    Wouldn't this train the dog to urinate on your stuff and never bring you the paper? Man, that seems twisted.

    ... and thus a fish is born. "Hmm the last time I made that bad call I hit the flush and got a mikbone (wtf is that btw?), I'll do it again this time!"

    Perspective is king - -

    When I hit my 2 or 3 outer, "I still had outs til the river!" - - when I don't, "that's poker"

    This is very good.
