I Think Thou Dost Protest Too Much
ON_THG had a comment about Hoyazo saying Rush Poker was crap. Hoyazo then commented -"It just makes me a little sad I guess to see so many people writing about how awesome Rush Poker is when I know it's really benefitting only the poker site and not the players who know how to play the game."
My opinion in under ten thousand words.
First - Spell Benefiting correctly. ;).
Second - Honestly there is only one bottom line to poker. Win. Make money. If every table on Full Tilt was turned to Rush poker you would still play Hoyazo because you think you could win.
Third - If your too stupid to adapt to the strategies necessary to make Rush Poker extremely profitable then you suck. You suck anyways. This suck is at poker. You suck anyways at poker. You get the point.
Fourth - Let me tell you all a story. Once upon a time there was poker. It was good. All the cheats and card sharks played and some got shot. It kind of matured a bit and regular people started playing. It then started trailing off a little. People did not want to play NLHE. The people thought it was slow and boring and had no action. So the good players lamented and cried and tried to figure out how to make the game fun. Thus was born Omatard. Nobody thinks that is a corruption of poker.
Poker is constantly adapting and changing. NLHE is a fairly new corruption as well as tourneys and SNGs. These have however become part of the landscape and are now "Traditional" poker. The diaper men at the poker rooms playing stud probably think that these things are a corruption of poker also. RUSH will either find it's place in the repertoire of the poker universe or will be kicked to the curb as a flash in the pan. Either way it is not for some punk like you to decide what is traditional and fine.
*** I neither claim to be a poker historian or to be particularly accurate in anything factual but I stand by the point that Omatard was a "new" outgrowth of poker just like RUSH is.
