      It's great that he is doing something like that to promote the games a bit, however I wouldn't be surprised if stars is paying him to do this either. I also think he probably has it made and it's not as important to him spending the hours with actual grinding. You will never catch a small or mid-stakes regular doing something like this for fun.

      I played a lot at Zynga on my phone before I could find a phone that could handle Pokerstars. Great fun and I do believe I learned how to play againstextremly careless players.

      But ... real money play is so much more rewarding when it cames to gameplay. So, no, I aint going back to play money.

      I've played play money in the last year when I was bored and too tired to risk real pennies :coolface:

      I've also learned most of the other poker variants at play money tables.

      I think it is wrong to suggest that the players don't care -- they seem to.

      There is extreme spewing, but there is strange trapping too -- and some seemingly very good players.

      It is correct to say that the games are not the same, but it is easy to adjust to play money.

      Cheers,

      your idea of very good players are a bit different than mine I think.

      I think it is more that my definition of "some" is different.
      There aren't many, true -- but I've encountered more than a couple.
