    Ok Beautiful Rock, you got me. lol I never have actually played poker before. I'm not into card games a whole lot. But even if I did play, I would most likely still think that they are over doing it by showing it so often on tv, on so many different channels.

    perhaps they are, but watching on tv is part of the learning process. I personally watch them all.

    i can tell you from personal experience (last night) that they last at least 6 hours

    Thats always where there is confusion. Darts is a sport too but there are those sports that are faster paced and actually require athleticism along with the strategy. Call those "active sports"?

    actually on absolute, the NL freerolls last at least 5.5 hours now that I think about it. I won a few of those. They used to pay only 10 bucks for 1st, but with the rebuys, that # went up to about 50-60 bucks but there are twice as many people.

    professional poker player adam shoenfeld disagrees with our assertion ENG. He says any activity where you can eat or drink a beer while you are doing it is not a sport. Does that mean golf is not a sport? lol

    On the professional level when you are actually competing you wont drink a beer on the course...don't think Ive seen a pro eat on the course either. Do many people drink beer on the WSOP? But I guess you need to put emphasis on the word "can".

    I guess that could be the difference.

    The ones that want to do, as part of the game they're playing. Men "the master" Nguyen is always seen drinking at the table. I guess they are trying to showcase that "drunken style poker" where they appear reckless but are setting people up.

    I joined the world poker exchange...it is a relatively smaller site. The pocket aces always win has a scale...so $1-2 gets 25 when you e-mail support of the game number you lost with them...its only wed through sat 1pm-1am...lol

    they have 6 $50 freerolls throughout the day...smaller than on AP and such...paradise has 2 $100 but at stupid times....but it looks as if they have an average of 500 entries in them instead of the other ones in the thousands.....depending how many entries...i guess top 50 pays.
