  • What did canadians do wrong

    i was looking forward to the new league format.change is good,well thanks ,but i guess pokerstars doesnt realy want candians involved in the new league,like a lot of folks,i work 5 days a week,8 till 5 ,and i get home just on time for the 17:30 ,if i get held up i miss it ,but it did not happen often,and then i would play the last two 20:00 and 22:00 ,and i would be going to bed between 12 and 1.now i cannt get home for 5 and there is no more games,we can what stay up all night on weekends and play a few ,or get what 2 touneys,i spent 20 years dealing with depresion and a sleep disorder,i have agood routine now and im sleeping ,but i came to enjoy poker, and to understand the deal and have come to understand the game much better,andnow we are slapped in the face and told we are not welcome

    We have to face facts, pokerstars is a business and right now they have to cater better towards the European majority in terms of time zones. Just another reason why we need our American buddies back online!! This isn't favouring any1 in general, more evenly spread out Either that or we all need to start making more babies here in Canada, getting them hooked to degenerate gambling at any early age..... Who's with me !? umbup:umbup:umbup:umbup:umbup:

          If we put 6 events in a 24 hour period evenly spread each 4 hours there is no advantage or disadvantage to anyone on the planet is there?

            And though you may complain about the new times, the old times weren't that good for all Canadians.....17:30 is 14:30 on the west coast, and 20:00 is 16:00 on the west coast which leaves 22:00 which is 19:00 on the west coast......although people in EST tend to forget about the rest of Canada..........

              so very true dgg but lets not forget I hate to say this as iam canadian and I rarely complain about anything, lets face it Canada is the biggest bunch of whiners in the world Iam SO embarrassed right now, also I might add you have 4 games on saturday, 4 games on Sunday, 5 games a week so thats roughly 52 games a month times say 15 points a game works out to a 2280 point finish!

                Where did you get to that point?
                Remember that Canadians are a big chunk of the League before we merged.
                Pretty harsh to call Canadians whiners,have some pride man!

                    To throw out a statment that all Canadians are whiners is distasteful and I think you know exactly what I am talking about.Your whole post is making a generalization about a Country that you obviously have no pride in.Simple answer to your problem,move!

                    My family has fought for this Country and I am tired of seeing people piss on it like it means nothing.
                    Sorry but your comment doesnt fly and think you will quickly find out I am not the only person that feels this way!

                      ok fine, not all canadians are whiners but the majority are and my family also fought in the war but it doesnt change the fact that "most" canadians are whiners, and I do have pride in my country but its pretty lame when someone is gonna whine over a game "IT IS WHAT IT IS" deal with it and make the best of it!

                          I agree, as a Canadian living in the states STFU stop with the lack of pride in country. My parents came to Canada because it was Canadian soldiers who fought and died to liberate their village in WW2.Even though I am in the USA I am and always will be a Canadian, and will always show pride and respect for my country

                            Believe me i understand, the times are just the beginning of this ridiculous setup. You think they would of asked us a bit about how they were setting it up since we are the ones playing in it.

                              its got nothing to do with the country its SOME people IN the country!!!! MAN UP stop being a baby and that is to the whiners not to ISee or Roomik Iam just saying to the whiners man up, it seems they had NO problem whatsover with the times when they were allowed to play and other country time zones werent allowed to play and now all of a sudden its "WHAT DID CANADIANS DO WRONG?!?!!?!?" that is the title of this post which imho is PATHETIC go ahead ban me for my opinion but it doesnt change the title of this thread nor that someone is whining because they cant play all the games they want but had no problem when others couldnt!!!!
