    In tourneys you need luck to win. But if you suck then you need crazy luck.

    At least live you can see the other guy and feel them out.
    Good point. They only way to gage the online player is to study his play over time, live is much better.

    While this is true to a point, do you think People using Tableninja and multitabling 60 tables really are thinking about their opponent?

    Of course with that said, if you have any reaction time whatsoever, and have an HUD, you will know that player pretty well over a VERY short period of play....

    Also, with all the information available, + the use of legal (and illegal) technology... The "Price" of "luck" has gone WAYYY WAYYYY down....

In a few cases it might be as someone is playing over their head and so on but usually it's other bad habits that lead to solid poker players needing a stake. TJ Cloutier and his crap habit for example. Great poker players often have an expensive habit it seems, they just can't seem to stick to what they win at. Good poker players rarely (if ever) have a bad year, it just doesn't happen. Not because they are "lucky" sir, it's because they are better than their competition. Losers cry about being "unlucky", winners keep taking the cheese. Been that way forever, will be that way forever going forward. Carry on.
    Good players never have a bad year? lol

    Guess you've never seen Dwan, Hansen, Negreanu, etc, get crushed.

    They need to be staked because variance is too big even for the best players.

    Only ones who never go broke are the ones who have sponsors or have their own businesses.
