Having witnessed the APAT Poker tourney at the Vic last night I have now realised that there is a massive gulf between the would/wanna be poker pro`s or  recreational players, and the hard line pro day to day grafters. The APAT guys were (Mostly) having a ball whooping and hollering..drinking... not a care in the World, and the cash games with them were great.
The day to day Vic regulars moaned and whinged at the noise whilst quickly lining up to have a shot at the visitors money. What dawned on me as a.. seasoned? pro, is that my whilst I have fun playing poker for a living, these guys play poker for fun...a totally different perspective. The penny has finally dropped.I now understand what Blonde, Sky Poker, APAT etc is all about.
So apologies to those who have been offended or in any way upset by my posts.
 
From this day forth I will try really hard to not be so opinionated, arrogant and.... right. (LoL)
Good luck to you all and thanks

I know what your saying, poker definitely more fun like this.

But you can get tables like this in the professional kind of environment. I had an awesome table in the $1k nightly event at Bellagio one night, all drinking having a laugh etc. Wish it was like that all the time!

The very last hand of the night goes to Dewi James, who finds ACES and talks Raymond O’Mahoney into calling his all-in preflop bet of 15k.  “If I had AQ, I’d call!” says Dewi.  Raymond calls holding pocket 66’s.
