Apparently you have it wrong. I do care about rating. I play so my ratings can get high as possible and to have fun doing it. Galt just to let you know. You say people go from 1500-1700 and 1700-1900 reading your book. 1700 is nothing...and anyone can get 1900...but no one in hardwood maintains it.....

None of us are good as we could be(WHICH IS PERFECT) As long as you have a loss next to your belt you can do better. But like the topic says. Does Practice Make Perfect Galt? (Not your book) Not to mention an improvement from 1500 to 1700 means nothing...that is simple playing the 20 games of provi....

Dead Presidents sigh @ shelley. Honestly there is a limit to how good you can perform in hardwood. And your rating will tell you that. Once you set table that are so high you wait hours for a game. And you end up facing the same four people when you play. Then you know you've reached the top of hard...

I couldnt have said it any better Shelley. And yes a card sense or what you call a six sense helps. Its just a sense that performs on how good you are tho. I also have more respect for the people that dont sit at provi all the time. And I agree with the spade book piano comparison. Spades is like ri...

Does Practice Make Perfect?

Many this will not apply to I suppose. But to some it does. In alot of things that we all do practice makes perfect. Here in hardwood I've had random people come up to me and ask how do you get so good. Or they ask how do you get a rating so high. There are also some people in hardwood that have bee...

Sadly the only two graphic things I've seen since I been in hardwood other than the avatars is Jonas' Moon and the new blue star. I'm pretty sure new characters can be created. I think its just a matter of not reallycaring about hardwood and how many characters are in it, as long as it is purchased ...

Its only a game and we are ONLY online.
So there is no reason to be sensetive.

If you dont want to get booted then make your own table.

I just look at it as an inability to play with not so good cards and losing...hence...calling it a one-sided deal.

We complain when we lose.
Never when we win.

Something New

I think its safe to say hardwood is getting boring. So it would be nice if the creators of hardwood do some creating. Add something so that people stay interested.

Its part of the game...it happens...its always going to happen... I believe we get good cards more than bad... We just dont notice it as much as getting crap... Its even worst in live tournaments... In live tournaments you dont get a chance to comeback as frequently as you do in hardwood... Hardwood...
