Hey,.....complaining about the way Russians play is NOT being racist!

Calling black folks with the 'N' word is racist

or Japanese with the 'G'word...

or Arabs by the 'SN' words...

etc.....is racist.

Spewing hate about folks of other colours is racist....

I noticed long before I hooked up here how Russians, their satellite countries previously occupied by them,...or other Eastern Europeans play,....and when I came here and saw all the talk,....it just confirmed it for me... I call it the 'PooTin (Putin)Syndrome'....

Granted,...being that there are 140+ million of them,...their numbers will be a lot higher,....but I NEVER see any Canadians 'constantly' shoving it all pre-flop with junk like 9 2 offsuit...

WOW !!! I am a little disgusted with this thread. There are moronic players from every country. To call out a country of players and say that they have all the luck etc and that Full Tilt caters to them ......

Really BRM'ers Confused Confused

Online poker is what it is. To,( IMO), be insulting and as it seems racist is not in my good books.

Grow some balls, and apologize to all the Russian mobsters.

Funny how many are very tough online and have much to say. Angry Angry Angry

I've just gone back a few days to re-read your 'Blonde Jokes' thread and I'd like you to clarify something for me if you will.

It's OK for you to post misogynistic jokes because they are jokes, right?

It's not OK for others to report on something that actually happened, because the players concerned were Russians and that's racist.

Have I understood the situation correctly?

Tired of your complaints
If you beat a donkey and fishing
This means that you are more donkeys or fish
I do not like much in the behavior of the Russians, but I don't like the behavior of other Nations
I'm not complaining, and I win
Topic for me is closed

I too have been treated well by many Russians that I have met, however, that does not alter the fact that in the instance reported by the OP he was sworn at by players whose nationality had been entered as Russia.

In any event my post was not about the original incident but about someone who appears to be a misogynist, in other words prejudiced, complaining about prejudice in others.

Pot calling the kettle black.

I am blonde dear and make jokes yes Smile

I do not however call out a country, race or sexual preference and label them. Would I post Canadian jokes? Of course but Canadians really are not that funny Blink ,( I am kidding of course as there are many funny Canadian comedians).

As for your quotes above well I am not racist in any way shape or form, rarely play online anymore but when I did there where many players from many countries who called with bs. Did I go " oh chit, they are from blah blah blah" and automatically label them? No I did not. Nor did I post a thread calling out a country and labeling as bad play. Not my style Smile

Have a great day. Smile

Where are you getting racism from? This thread is about playing style in a game of poker not some sort of Nazi bash out, out in the streets. On FT and PS they donk and call idiot calls more than any other country. Everyone knows every country has idiots like this and players that are great players but you just seem to be rambling on about racism when it is nothing to do with racism.

Racism is generally defined as actions, practices, or beliefs that consider the human species to be divided into races with shared traits, abilities, or qualities, such as personality, intellect, morality, or other cultural behavioral characteristics, and especially the belief that races can be ranked as inherently superior or inferior to others, or that members of different races should be treated differently.

Had to wiki it. Disagree

I started this thread regarding poker not politics of racism. They donk and luck out more(On FT and PS) than everyone else. That is nothing to do with them being ranked as superior or inferior than anyone else, or to do with trying to put them down or for racism it's to do with poker truth. Hell, even Romanians are nearly on par with Russians, but that is not a racist dig either, but you keep interpreting it as that for some reason.

What is next for you, trying to save the rain forests because we use paper.
