looking to the stats of the top3 players of the WCOOP main event let me ask, if poker is really a skill game or more a bingo...
 stojaca29/09/2010 14:18:34 GMT
Online poker is a skill game??? LOL

No man, only face to face poker (live game) is skill game, in internet poker player dont need brain or skills, just luck.

i bet you are losing online, thats why you say so;]

When you deal with 3000 players tourney, and there are like 50 pro players its pretty obvious about result.

Look at the wcoop leaderboard after 61 events - why there are not many amateurs?

patetic style of playing, fishy fishy fishy, with many unreal luck like K9 vs. AA with completed strite on river.... only drunken can play like that.

I agree with Badcall84, only loosing players complain.. But I still cant understand why are they still playing, they must be those who gable.

Very sick amount for a 1st place winnings for an online poker tournament, it's not surprising though as the number are players keep increasing at an impressive rate... I guess next time this event will reward more than 2.5 millions to the winner.

 SuperNoob04/10/2010 05:18:03 GMT
pretty nice win for an online tournament and that too for 5000 buyin, well done Potterpoker. this thing is possible only at big sites like PS or FT, others wudnt be able to get even close to tht prize amount

Posters #1 and #2 you're both complete jokes. F off.

Congrats to the winner.. that'd be so unreal winning an amount like that online... LoL can just imagine a thread started somewhere about withdrawal delays or some crap.. "yeh - they told me it was gonna take 3 business days to process my $2M withdrawal - security checks or some BS - what a load of crap - joke site"
