2 mins read


I wanna tell you all my story. Gambling is so bad. Just 1 of 1000 people can win it. I lost everything that I had. But now I realized, it’s not the end. It’s just beginning of new part of my life. Now I have 8500$ debts, and I must return it in one month, or I will lost my home. Guys, don’t gamble please. You can play bj, poker and betting. But you should only play, and not recoup and earn. For example you get debt for gamble, today is so damn good, you have money and false hope, that all will be okey. But not, tomorrow your debt will be more. F**n covid robbed me of my good job. My salary was something like 1000$ in month. It’s was pretty good. But after this I don’t wanna get other job with small salary. I thought it’s not exit for me. But guys don’t be afraid make one-two step back for good feature. Nothing is eternal, even problems. Don’t be afraid to tell someone about your problems, because it’s very good help to us. Never take credits and loans for gambling. It’s the most worst thing in this situation. I spent a lot of money for betting. I wanna kill myself. But now, I live with hope. Don’t be afraid, guys, everything will be ok. IF U CANT STOP, U MUST JUST PLAY FOR FUN AND NOT RECOUP. All you, who afraid to tell your problems, can write me. I promise I try to help. Ps sorry for my English

No Man’s Land: Will Genderless Cards Reinvent Poker Download Games?

4 mins read


Poker cards have looked the same for quite some time, and most people didn’t question their design or meaning. For many decades, the higher-valued cards were represented by members of the royal family – kings, queens, and princes.However, some people believe that the popular card design is outdated and that it’s time to change things up. In recent weeks, poker players have been talking about an alternative kind of design for a deck of cards: genderless figures.What stands behind the proposition of changing the current deck? Will it influence poker download games? And what does history say about changing trends in card design? Learn all of that NOW!Woman Proposes to Use a Genderless Deck – and the Masses ReactIndy Mellink, a young woman from the Netherlands, came up with the idea of designing a gender-neutral deck of cards. The forensic psychology graduate even went as far as manufacturing and distributing more than 1,500 packs of cards to spread her message.But what gave Mellink the idea that something needed to be changed? Apparently, while playing card games with her family, the young innovator figured out something she has never paid attention to before. Why was the king automatically worth more than the queen?In an interview, Mellink said: “… it’s just another way of saying hey, you’re less important”. While cards’ value might be a small thing, it is still a part of our society that tells women they aren’t as important as men. Maybe, by changing seemingly trivial parts of our culture, we will be able to reduce gender inequality on a bigger scale as well.Instead, the new deck of cards includes gold, silver, and bronze imagery to replace the royal characters that we know so well. But what did people, including some online poker players, thought about this initiative?The Public’s ResponseWhen news of the gender-neutral cards deck made headlines, some people were supportive – and some were not.The head of the Dutch Bridge Association, for example, said: “… But gender neutrality, I am all for it! It’s great that someone of this age has noticed this”. However, she also said that the new type of cards won’t be used anytime soon in official games, as it will require a rewrite of the existing rules.Mellink also claimed that many of the people she approached have never even considered the gender issue when playing cards. Therefore, they haven’t had a lot to say about the subject.But most tweets and online reactions actually mocked the idea. Reuters reported that one man said: “…it’s ridiculous”, while another made a valid point: “… Isn’t the ace the highest card already? And that is gender-neutral. Check and mate.”Card Designs in the PastWhile we’re all used to the cards that started this entire debate, in the past, this style of cards was used mainly in France, and then reaching Belgium and England. The French were the first to officially use the classic suits – ♥, ♦, ♣, ♠.Other countries, however, had a different vision as to what playing cards should look like. In the past, Spanish card suits included cups, coins, clubs, and swords. The same thing goes for Italian decks, although the designs looked a bit different.Germany also had unique card suits – including hearts, bells, acorns, and leaves. And even now, you will be able to find some of those traditional cards in various countries all across the world.In ConclusionOverall, it seems that people weren’t overly enthusiastic about the idea, but who knows? Maybe in the future, we will see new card designs gracing the poker tables.For now, it seems more likely that people will be able to find gender-neutral cards only in gift shops and the likes of it.

Day 1) my story

2 mins read


Next month will be my 30th birthday, which also happens to my my 15th year of problem gambling. It started out innocently enough with my friends big brother inviting me to join his home game of poker with a 5 dollar buy-in, somehow being completely new to the game i walked away with 20 dollar and was instantly hooked. Fast forward 15 years trying to be a professional poker player alongside of being drawn to all kinds of other betting such as sports and slots I have lost probably 300k whereof 100k is still owed with 35k high interest credit loans and the rest credit in private poker clubs and people. I have a master’s business degree, but quit my bank manager job when on a “high” rungood poker run when i was up 20k dollar and thought I had finally made my breakthrough after studying the game professionally. I have lived a big lie and Now I have absolutely nothing but my 8 year old laptop and heaps of debt. My most valuable possession is probably my couch at a couple hundred dollars. I am actually a quite cheap and financially sensible person who chooses the 1,39 dollar milk over the 1,69dollar one to save some money, but i can easily blow 3k playing poker when the funds are available. I am at rock bottom and don’t know what to do, broke depressed and drowning in debt and don’t know if I can ever recover from this addiction. Only reason I come here for help is because I just blew my last rent money due next week and can’t even afford a loaf of bread anymore. Dear God please help submitted by /u/Brilliant-Entry-52 [comments]

Anthony Holden, live poker, Nick the Greek, Poker, Seven Poker Quotes

Seven final poker quotes to inspire you

4 mins read


When it’s played right, poker should inspire everyone at the table, win or lose. Of course it’s nice to walk away from the felt a winner, but it shouldn’t define your mood. If it does, maybe you’re in the wrong game.Better a rye smile and a few funny words than anything is our motto and it’s with that spirit in mind that we present to you seven final quotes from the great game to inspire your own week at the felt.Let’s get the lesson on!1. “People would be surprised to know how much I learned about prayer from playing poker.”Mary Austin makes the surprise call about a player’s beliefs at the poker table. Have you ever been all-in against an opponent and they’ve called upon ‘The Poker Gods’ to save them despite veering between only agnostic or downright atheist? This isn’t uncommon in real life, actually. In times of peril, many people will summon a higher power for help having previously never believed. We think any God might be quite busy saving the starving and hungry to assist in preventing that one-outer landing on the river, but what do we know?2. “If you play bridge badly you make your partner suffer, but if you play poker badly you make everybody happy.”Joe Laurie Jr. hits the nail on the head, as in poker it really is you against the world. If the world wins, then they want you back at the table as soon as possible. If you win, well you’re happy. It sounds like the easiest thing to be a winner at poker, but it is of course, very difficult. Getting to know how your table (and in microcosm, the poker world) plays, is of course, key. There’s no way around playing at the felt to do this, so stay sharp by staying at the table.3. “Even Jesus wouldn’t bet all of his chips on a Jack-three.”Phil Gordon is inclined to believe that Jesus would have been tight-aggressive or at the very least tight-passive and who are we to disagree. What would Jesus’ favourite hands be? Well it’s hard to look past the son of God set-mining with the cowboys in order to get three kings – that would be the Jesus play. It’s unlikely he’d even call the flop with pocket sixes for fear of landing the hand of the devil – 666.4. “I was tired, a little the worse for drink, jet lagged and light-headed – four out of four conditions in which one should certainly not play poker in Las Vegas.”There aren’t many people we respect more in poker than Anthony Holden, who is better health than he has enjoyed recently, spoke to us way back in 2012 at the inaugural IFP poker event at the Rotunda in London.If you haven’t read Anthony Holdens seminal poker book Big Deal, then read our review of it right here and make it your next poker purchase – it’s wonderful.5. “Baseball is like a poker game. Nobody wants to quit when he’s losing; nobody wants you to quit when you’re ahead.”Jackie Robinson is bang right about one of the most important things to remember about playing poker and quitting while you’re ahead. No-one wins forever in poker, but those who learn to walk away from the table with profit on a consistent basis win the long game. In the end, the only battle is with yourself.6. “Last night I stayed up late playing poker with Tarot cards. I got a full house and four people died.”Steven Wright with one of the funniest lines about poker ever written. Just the visualization of a home game with Tarot cards is enough to make us chuckle, but if you get tired of poker, you can always look at our article we published over Christmas which talks about other card games you might like to play. 7. “The next best thing about gambling and winning is gambling and losing.”Nick ‘The Greek’ Dandalos had an appetite for gambling that was insatiable and he knew that win or lose, if you’re taking part, you’re enjoying it to some extent. Poker is like that and if you’re in a chair, virtual or otherwise, you can have fun.If you’re playing poker tonight, then enjoy it! It’s enormous fun and should be enjoyed whenever you sit down to play. We hope that you’ve loved this look at some of the best quotes from the world of poker as much as we’ve enjoyed putting it together.

‘Letting go of ‘giving up’

3 mins read


Of course this topic has featured innumerable times on this forum but here goes anyway… Today I parted ways with my sponsor and withdrew from my existing GA groups, I was halfway through the steps. I simply want to go on record as saying that GA was a ‘game changer’ in my life, however in conjunction with a course of counselling and the 12-steps of recovery, I was really able to root out the pathology associated with my gambling – confronting it, accepting it, releasing it, adjusting to life beyond the pain. The reason I’ve given it all up today is because I’m not going to gamble anymore, in the same vein as knowing I am not going to go rob a bank today… So purely and simply, I can be doing other things with my time now. This is what people normally tend to do, explore something, gain mastery over it then either stick with it or move on. Back in the day, without the psychological underpinning I have now + increased self-awareness related to why I behaved in the way I did – gambling, losing, robbery, fraud… anything was possible as I had no knowledge of who I was and no moral compass to boot… The time spent in GA has endowed me with both those things, as well as the hard work I put in around meetings + the extra support I sought out for my own benefit…yes, recovery became an addiction. Addiction takes a lot of effort… I’m finally at a point where I can drop addiction and repurpose that effort and energy in places that were previously neglected (family, friends, career). The big book promises you a ‘return to sanity’ but I believe there are those of us out there who are seeking a ‘return to normality’ – they are not one and the same thing…i think I was restored to sanity but continually living in fear towards the end of my time in the program. Now I have a refined version of normality to exercise… I was fearless before, that’s why I ended blowing my brains out with gambling you know? 😂😂 Towards the end, the program only served to suppress this fearlessness under the premise that it was something that I would never be able to harness… But here’s the thing, my aspiration for normality involves the peaks and troughs of life, the success and failures, the wins and losses… Just without the gambling involved. There’s a paradox associated with a normal existence in the form of it being transient – but this is something exciting, that I am willing to embrace, now the obsession to gamble has left me. One thing the GA program protects you from is full, unadulterated transience. One thing the program does offer is a perpetual state of flux between who you were, what you could be if you’re not careful, and what you should be / will be if you stay within pre-ordained parameters. See you guys on the other side, if I gamble again then I guess something went wrong… But that’s OK. And by that being OK (and genuinely meaning this), it probably won’t happen again. The tide is constantly changing, and I am glad that the GA program has, in part, taught me how to ride those waves, but I can’t be standing on the beach forever looking out at the sea. Good luck all x submitted by /u/skiptracerbin2 [comments]

Happy Singles Awareness Day

2 mins read


As I sit in my hotel room comped by the casino, waiting for the limo service comped by the casino, to drop me off at the airport to board a flight comped by the casino, I think to myself: Is this really worth it? Was it worth it a few days ago for me to land in a new city, hit a hand pay jackpot my first night and later lose it all (and more)? The ups and downs of gambling are making me into a monster that I don’t even recognize. I’m alone on Valentine’s Day, on a “vacation” that I planned for me, myself and I. Did I really want a break from my day-to-day or was I just too ashamed to invite my family/friends onto a trip where I was going to enter another downward spiral? I am so tired of living paycheck-to-paycheck, max’ing out all of my credit cards, and being late paying my bills. I am not a suicidal person but sometimes I feel like I need a drastic end to all of this because I don’t feel like I have the willpower to stop this nonsensical cycle. To everyone on this thread posting the number of days they have gone without gambling, I commend you. How did you stop the cycle? What are your secrets to not living life lusting after an unreachable jackpot? submitted by /u/Complex_Street_5667 [comments]

Moves to Open Gambling, Lottery in Hawaii Reach Roadblocks

3 mins read

Usually when someone asks if gambling will ever be legalized across the States of America, there has always been two holdouts that would prevent it. Utah, being the home of the Mormon Church, has banned any type of gambling inside the state’s borders, even lotteries. Hawaii used to be the other state in that answer, but there are moves to open the islands for gambling and lottery sales that are currently at a roadblock.

Casino, Lottery Sales in Legislation

According to Dan Nakaso of the Honolulu Star-Adviser, the chances of a bill passing through the Hawaii House of Representatives took several blows last week. There were three bills that had been proposed by State Representative Sean Quinlan, who chairs the House Economic Development Committee. The three bills would have each addressed a different area of gaming in the Aloha State.

The first was House Bill 383, which would have created a state-run poker commission that would have jurisdiction over live poker rooms in the state. The second was House Bill 772, which would have allowed for the building of a casino at the Hawaii Convention Center that would only be accessible by players who had stayed in an Oahu hotel. Finally, there was House Bill 736, which would have given the framework for digital sports betting (mobile).

The Senate also had their own bills floating around their chambers. Senate Bill 816 would have created the ability for the state to facilitate a lottery that would have begun in January 2022. The bill passed out of the Senate Education Committee, but it was amended by the chairwoman of the committee, Senator Michelle Kidani, to take effect in January 2023 instead. An additional casino proposal in the Senate, Senate Bill 1321, is also on the table, but has yet to pass out of committee.

What Would be the Impact of Legalized Gaming on Hawaii?If you are looking at just the residents of Hawaii, gaming might not be significantly impactful. With only 1.42 million residents, they are barely above the size of Delaware (a state which has a multitude of gaming operations) and less than Nevada. With this said, a study showed that there are 500,000 trips from Hawaii to Las Vegas every year, a sizeable amount of traffic that cannot be ignored.

The real draw of gaming in Hawaii would be the tourism industry. Over seven million people visit the Hawaiian Islands on a yearly basis simply for what the islands have to offer now. While there might be a decrease in some areas of tourism if casino gaming were allowed (people wouldn’t be taking the sightseeing trips and other accoutrements), having casino gaming and other options available could raise significant revenues.

There is a downside of the situation, however, and it is something that we have been dealing with for the past year – COVID. Already dependent on tourism for much of their revenues, why would Hawaii commit to another arena that is driven by people gathering in an area and potentially get sick? The moves by the bicameral legislature in Hawaii are significant in that they are examining the issue of gaming heavily. But even those in charge say that there is no possibility of passage of these laws, at least in 2021. The discussion is there, however, so it may be something that nobody has any control over as to when it will happen – the passage of time and the acceptance of gaming in the state.

Day 100 – Woot! Woot!😊

2 mins read


Today is an important day for me. Day 100. I don’t like to post in the mornings, usually, because I haven’t made it through the day yet. Today is different, I KNOW that I won’t gamble today. Period. It’s only fitting that it lands on Valentine’s Day, because this has been a journey of learning how to love myself. It’s been a battle and some days the journey is harder than others, but I’ve made it. I think about the damage that I wrought over years and years, and then I look at the progress that I’ve made in these past three months and it’s amazing. I will preface by saying that my husband and I are extremely lucky, we are both essential workers and our income hasn’t been harmed by the Pandemic. I will say, though, my gambling beat all for emptying out our finances. Now, after three months of better choices our bank account needs a comma. It requires a comma. The debt is still there. But I’m slowly whittling that down. I would love to throw all of my new found liquidity at the debt. But I’m learning about the value of money again. I’m learning about the slow build of money; about saving and earning. Tonight I’m going to cook a kick ass Valentine’s dinner for my husband. We’ll eat and relax and I won’t feel like the entire meal is a massive apology for all of my fuck-ups. Every day can really feel like a challenge in the beginning, but it gets easier. It does. Remember, though, that addiction comes from some place. Gambling is a coping skill, an unhealthy coping skill, but a coping skill. Unless you are willing to find out what you are coping with and develop other, healthy coping skills, the shadow will always be lurking over you. Now I can see the shadow, but know to turn on another light. submitted by /u/punkrain [comments]
