Ahah! Great storyline, the story of so many starting players, and the way they win a lot and lose it all in the next moment is so “animation” like! But it is very well applied to this case, because it really happens a lot to be the best on one day and the beast in the day after. And the fact of the players being under 18 is a big critic to the security system of many poker sites.

I guess I must watch the full episode before talking about it, but I think im gonna love it, The Simpsons are great.

loool this episode sums up all the good and bad things await you on you poker journey- first you accidentally find the software, get hooked up, then somehow win even though you don't even know the rules properly (beginners luck imo), then you can't live without poker- you go on playing even higher stakes, have huge amount of cash in your account and.....howard lederer steals it...lol
