How many times have you tried to get a good honest home game going with your buddies, when Slav from Croatia sits down and ruins all of your fun? It's happened to me way too many times to even try to get an online poker game going with my friends in the past.

I don't want to bore you with an explanation, but just check out how horrible this dude is who I'm playing against. His hand makes absolutely no sense, and then he has the audacity to disconnect on me, only to come back with an impossible to fathom winning strait....Read more
