  • Euro donks?

    Hey

    Since the US players are gone, i have noticed it being a lot easier to make money on stars as the fields now are full of euro retards, south american calling stations and any other combo of nationality + horrible playing style. This is a generalization of course, as there are many good euro, south american players etc... but as can be seen from the play at the tables... these are the minority.

    So this training thing... its bad, because we don't want these players to get better. We want the -$50k negative grinder bottom 25% on OPR euro moron to stay a moron, sure its annoying when they call your pot size + bets to the river to hit their draw, frustrating when they hit, but otherwise good as they chip you up.

    I think its a combo of a number of things
    1- poker is relatively new in that part of the world, so players have not worked out how to play properly.

    2 - Euro people are not very good at risk management, statistics etc. The fields of economics and finance have a large cross over with the skills required to play poker. Just look at the economies of many European countries... Also from personal experience having worked in Europe it was very easy to get work almost as though antipodeans are preferred over locals.

    3 - Playing style of Euro Pro's. Obv Gus Hansen, Elky, Patrick Antonious etc are not donks, but they play a very agressive LAG style, one that is hard to do right. Possibly many Euro donks look up to these players and try and emulate their style.

    Thoughts?

    While i miss the US players who play solid for the most part.. its good with the not here

    GL at the tables.... even you euro donks!

                My theory is the closer a player lives to eastern europe, the more of a donk they are. The Russians are the worst donks.
