While I don't agree that Americans are on a whole stupid, I would think that do the sheer volume of players they bring to the table, and the fact that they are a wealthy nation that can afford to play loosely, that surely the loss of American players has led to a decrease in opportunity for the sharks out there.

the US had some of the best players but they also had a lot of fish plus i think they were more predictable then these europeans, online poker has gotten more marginal without the americans to add to the edge... i wouldnt go far enough to the point to say in general that americans are bad at poker though...

Well I just read your post and I must say that you do not know what you are talking about mate. Perhaps you should take a look at who the top 25 poker players in the world are and where they live. Do you think any of them are living in America? The answer is YES there are alot of GREAT US poker players. There are GREAT poker players from all over the world. I would point out that human beings are all people who share the intellectual gene pool. There are stupid people everywhere you go and lumping all people in a country is just a dumb arse thing to do in general. That is just my opinion, but what do I know i am a Canadian

I'm not even offended by your comment. I'm smart enough and been all around this world to know that when an individual makes statements as such they are generally the stupid one. To make negative statements about people based on the country their from or ethnic background tells a lot about the individual making the statement. That person has very little travels, hasn't actually developed friendships with people from around the world nor does the indivdual have the capability or integrity to respect others. The person is truely the idiot and it's easily recognized by the general population.
I've played online for only 2.5 years and have seen good players and bad players from everywhere and to classify any individual based on where they come from or their race is just ridiculous.
Your a 35 year old with the intellect of a teenager or less in some cases. Be logical, diligent and respectful. You'll feel better about yourself which in return allows you to gain others respect.
