    Poker Defrocked

    I didn't think there were enough threads on poker

    In my continuing quest to start a thread in which no-one responds (go on, don't post), I offer that poker is the new bingo! Prizes prizes prizes - lots of prizes. Feel the buzz, come on down! 100's people in the hall all trying their luck. Eyes down for a full house {sensational punning from the simpleton} ...

    Good luck ladies! Carry on!

    If you're looking for the type of thread which attracts no response then check out some of my threads mate.

    I think I had one called 'the good, the bad, and the ugly' which was reviews on chess materials which didn't attract a response. I also had a thread which postulated what intelligent spieces would do on earth if they evolved in a few tens of millions of years. Would they be able to go from Steam power to nuclear power given that we humans will have used up most of the fossil fuels.

    Mate - I think it is your personality which attracts the response. You're just a legend mate. You could have a thread titled 'What I like about ABBA and Big Brother' and you would still get a response.

    Cheers
    George.

    All I can say is that Barry must have missed it and clearly Jono was in hiatus at the time You'd have no such problems now!

    At least it has a greater skill element.

    It does! It represents the evolution from a one cell organsim to a two cell one. Soon, there'll be cognition

    I wonder if Poker and Chess could combine?

    Take a chess tournament like the Australian Championships.

    Playing schedule
    Registration 2nd January 12:30pm 1:15pm
    Round 1 2nd January 1:30pm
    Round 2 3rd January 10:30am
    Round 3 3rd January 4pm
    Round 4 4th January 10:30am
    Round 5 4th January 4pm
    Round 6 5th January 10:30am
    Championship Rest Day 6th January 2pm Lightning
    Round 7 7th January 10:30am
    Round 8 8th January 10:30am
    Round 9 9th January 10:30am
    Round 10 10th January 10:30am
    Round 11 11th January 10:30am
    Prize giving 11th January 4:30pm

    Then you find some Poker tournaments that start from 6pm game 1 and 8pm game 2 on the days that most chess games are finish by 3pm or have no game at all. (time to analyse or prepare for your next game and all are within 15min travel from Parramatta)

    Jan 2nd - Wednesday night - Granville
    Jan 5th - Saturday night - Northmead
    Jan 6th - Sunday night - Birrong
    Jan 7th - Monday night - Regents Park
    Jan 9th - Wednesday night - Granville
    Jan 10th - Thursday night - Dundas

    On top of the cash prizes you couyld have a mini grand prix of poker for those playing in the championships based on points awarded on placings in the poker tournaments.

    1st 1 free entry into the 2008 SIO or if titled you could take the clock instead
    2nd DGT XL clock
    3rd 2 year Chess magazine subscription
    4th 1 year Chess magazine subscription

    But could it happen?
    No this is silly, the whole premise is silly and very badly written. I'm the senior officer here and I've not had a funny line yet so I'm stopping it.

    Sydney International Open

    Parramatta Chess Club

    Manchester United - In decline since 92!

    I think the problem is right there. You are not meant to tell people that is your intention.

    Unless you are using reverse psychology and really want people to post.....

    The only threads I have started which did not get any replies were ones advertising events I was running. There's an idea....

    Online this happens rather frequently. I have beaten strong players on ICC only to have them tell me they lost because they were in a big pot on Poker Stars
