      Puschkin81, you may slap me for doing this ;)
      I know that this wasn't in the sample hands forums and it wasn't the same "why?" question. And I do know that this was meant as a joke (I do hope so), but still..
      Fun to see how one can get down to a basic member when someone suggests asking quesitons from you and now you encourage people to bug other PokerStrategy employees :)

      Stop this! Otherwise you are a basic member in a few seconds ;) :P

      Besides that, a nice read. Although it might not get people who aren't motivated motivated. (Lucky I'm motivated when I have the time! :) )

      *slap* ;)

      Yes, of course this was a joke. Everyone should ask questions if he or she doesn't understand something.

      Good luck at the tables!

      I second the playing motivator article; reading, thinking and calculating are both easy and automatic, playing is work and winning or losing hundreds of dollars isn't easy.

      thats quite the read!!

      its a struggle for all of us bronze players im sure :) especially when we read the post of ppl who skip the strategy and brag that there up to 400 or whatever the case may be... but on the same hand im learning from other ppls mistakes and not about to go broke anytime soon :)

      i appreciate all the info and the help of all the mods on this site.. i make sure i get a bit of reading in everyday and i know it don't happen overnight considering with my ups and downs im still sitting at $60 :(

      Thank you guys!

      @ hippycrit0420: Don't worry. At the beginning of my poker career I had a slow start myself. But I moved up by learning and playing ;)

      Good luck at the tables!
