What Do Neteller, the DOJ, Bill Frist and Bottom Set With No Draws in O8 Have In Common?

If you said, "They all suck ass!!!" you'd be correct!

I have nothing new to add about Neteller that hasn't been discussed elsewhere. I'm just glad that I got my money the hell out of there. For those of you that have funds stuck, I wish you the best in getting your money out. It's a fucked up day when the DOJ and our great country that is suppose to be the "land of the free" starts enforcing prohibition on something millions of Americans enjoy, and against legal, public companies no less. Bill Frist is a mother fucker for attaching the internet gaming prohibition to the ports bill behind closed doors, plain and simple. Fuck you Bill! You cost investors billions of dollars and took away our rights!

Here is a hand where a lot of players get into trouble. You flop bottom set with no draws on a flush/low draw board against several players and are out of position. There is no need to even get involved in this crummy situation, just check dump it! Sets are golden in Holdem, not Omaha.
