Thats exactly it..
Lately Waffles has been pimping Fluxer like he is the next coming, but I gotta tell ya, the more and more I read the more I'm interested to hear what they both (and others) have to say. At first I was pretty tired of Waffles seemingly over doing it, but after a while I liked hearing the way they think about the game and how they put the non traditional plays into perspective. Not saying it is right or the way, but it is great to get it out there to discuss. -- TripJax

Trip has it right here. The one reason I post different hands is because I like the feedback and discussion it generates. I could care less if anyone plays 24h ever.. or if they try and value bet their monsters instead of inducing huge calls.. nobody has to play any specific ways and certain ways can get you hurt if you do not understand the thinking behind them, or you do not have the personality to play that way. I respect the fact that many different styles work in poker and each new idea has merit. Alot of smart people disagree with things I write and I learn something from each of their comments. It all blends into a style that works for me and hopefull over time makes me a better player.
The only comments I do not respect are the ones where people say "Your a donkey" and do not explain a single thing about WHY. I think alot of this comes from many, many people spitting back up what they have heard from books and TV and not REALLY understanding WHY. They are unable to explain it to themselves and so they must fall back on ignorant comments. I challenge every one of you who want to become better to keep asking WHY.
