Despite the obvious malevolent, disparaging tone of this message, I'm not sure it is totally devoid of merit (also I'm not comfortable with the slightly disproportionate (however deserved) group bashing it has invoked).
I don't mean to defend content, nor tone of this message, but:
Do we have any professional players that frequent this forum? I don't know. I certainly enjoy reading the various opinions, and often recognize the wisdom of certain posters superior to that of my own. In fact I dispatch some advice of my own, on occasion, and other forum members do not know my credentials (or lack thereof).
I think it's educational to read the various advice given, because it reflects how we think about/analyse the sort of situations that are presented. And even if the advice itself may be flawed at times, it gives you insight into the mind of your peers.
As luck has it, these are exactly the type of people we encounter playing poker, right?
Copy/paste!...: lol Just kidding. VERY nice reply marqis.
"....insight into the mind of your peers." Nice.
I would also like to add that if your brain functions well enough to play Poker, you can probably weed the worst players out from the better ones., and thus their advice.
If you can't, I suggest you play something else. Really.
