      alright so i got a nice welcome to the new limit..

      gotta admit i ran super hot as you will see later in the hands.

      1)i had everything crossed when i saw his hand.

      2)luck boxing skills. :f_cool: :f_cool:
      http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-hands/Boom/10623581_3FF0FC1CB2

      initial impressions - people are soooooo bad..most of them play their hand face up..and what is up with the constant overly done aggression..this for eg.have no idea what he is trying to make me fold.? AK JJ.?

      hey guys..
      i am in a bit of a philosophical mood today so i will introduce my followers(which currently stand at a total of 0) to KABIR.
      kabir was a great mystic poet and sanit from india who lived in 14th century.the word kabir itself means "the great".

      il explain a couple of his poems to you guys.

      1) Bura Jo Dekhan Main Chala, Bura Naa Milya Koye Jo Munn Khoja Apnaa, To Mujhse Bura Naa Koye

      meaning - I searched for the crooked, met not a single one. When searched myself, "I" found the crooked one .

      2)Dheere Dheere Re Mana, Dheere Sub Kucch Hoye
      Mali Seenche So Ghara, Ritu Aaye Phal Hoye .

      meaning - Slowly slowly O mind, everything in own pace happens
      Gardener may water with a hundred pots, fruit arrives only in its season .

      Kabir composed in a pithy and earthy style, replete with surprise and inventive imagery. His poems resonate with praise for the true guru who reveals the divine through direct experience, and denounce more usual ways of attempting god-union such as chanting, austerities, etc.

      anyway i hope i havent bored you guys to much..have a great sunday..
