City of Roses
Many often stereotype poker as just a silly game that almost excavates the hatchet of competitiveness, which that statement I find to be half-right.
I've always found it's a game that really helps you learn about other people, forms a unique sense of coterie. You know how Forrest Gump's mom said in the movie you can learn a lot about a person just by looking at their shoes. I find you can learn a lot about someone by the way they play games like that.
There's no doubt the game can get fiercely competitive, but personality plays a major role in the game. I find the best of players are able to discipline their competitive spirit and train themselves to be versatile and fuse their passion and competitive spirit in good measure.
I often love to be the harmonizer at the table, and often love posting in the chat box during the game, cheering everyone for good hands and wanting to learn more about who I'm playing with.
Yay, Greeneyes, I'd love to play sometime with you, yay!
