      Imo it's the players fault trying to get it. I'd be fun if we complete it we'd get a message from pokerstrategy saying something like "Congratulations! you're a moron and you just lost 100 strategy points!" :coolface:
      Like some negativ achievement.
      There could be similar negativ achievements like if you limp from UTG a couple of times in a session you'd get it with a link to the beginner's strategy section. :f_biggrin:

      I've done similar stupidity when I was about to get as many Trifecta's (checkreaise flop/turn/river and win a hand) as I could get on PTR. I've got 9 but I kinda missed out on a buttload of value bets when they checked behind.

      Don't take it personally Roo, if I'd be using sidekick, I'd probably be tempted every time I see a 72o :D

      Start by opening 72o OTB if you actually want the badge. Then play it like any other weak hand you open in that position.

      lol no I won't! I know how moronic it is to play this hand under normal circumstances, but its just a bit of fun collecting the badges and I only play very low stakes, i just find it funny that this hand is one of the badges :)

      Hopefully it will soon be mine :f_cool:

      Why would anyone use that sidekick thing? It's just a useless distraction.

      I dont think it's that bad and I would not call it a "useless distraction" you can earn extra strategy points and cash, and I think its just at the beginning stages, I believe ps will start to add promotions and stuff through this.

      I like it :)
