at least blackjack has no pretentions about about the arbitrariness of your input. It's like "hey buddy, go on. Chuck a bit more down, you might win". But poker's all like "my good friend, if you play well then you will win. Luck has nothing to do with it". IT'S A FUCKING LIAR. If you get shit cards after shit cards then YOU WILL LOSE, no matter how artfully you misdirect your opponents. So yeah, thanks poker. And thanks the fucking cosmos, some mate you turned out to be.
