    Unhappy Resist Being a DONK

    Several of the tourneys I've worked hard to gather entry points for, and registered hoping to enjoy a game, have been a bummer. This is because it seems some players can't resist donking all in pre-flop constantly. Is this a strategic way to play? Is playing like that really fun? Can you prove you have any skill at all by going all in every hand until you get lucky or wind up donking out early in the tourney? I don't know why you bother to register and play a tourney at all if you need to play like that. I could see an occassional "all in". By why make all the other players miserable until you finally lose. Please, find another strategy to play here, or stop registering on these PokerOwned tourneys. I see comments from the other players during the tourney. They chat unhappy and remarks of distain for the real donkey that won't stop it. Am I the only one that doesn't like this kind of action here? Can it somehow be moderated?

    Plain and simple IDIOTS WILL BE IDIOTS!!!! It has to be fun for some cause thats all you ever see them doing and 90% of the time its with shit!! All you can do is avoid them and try not to race unless you have a premium hand and even then they will donk you out ALOT!! I dont mind the idiots that push alot as it makes my decision much easier but what i cant stand is those who have no concept of hand values. Pot odds cannot make up for terrible hand odds regardless of what some will say. Alot here will play some pretty trashy cards like KQ,KJ, ace rag for raises so you have to be careful after the flop.

    Agree with you Abwil to many players think A rag is the nuts. I don't how many times I have had my AA KK AK ex. or premium hands get cracked by A rag because they call my pre flop raise with there trash and im done because they hit their rag card for a pair to bust my AK or they trip there rag card. So I again say I agree

    Tighten up your range of hands you play when at the table with someone like this. You have to read the players and play according to how they play, if you was to go to a casino you'll get fish and donks who don't really know what they are doing, it's POKER. At the end of the day its a gamble just be smart when you pick your battles. Atleast playing premium hands you will win most of the time but playing on carbon you will get sucked out alot too.

    Well you can't expect alot from a freeroll. However it is not exactly a "freeroll" because it costs to play. There are donks everywhere, you just have to learn how to duck and dodge them.

    you want bad players, if you really look they may chip up early but in the end they feed the table with chips. Sometimes you/I will be on the bad end of the stick. You have to remember in a Free Roll you are going to see a lot more bad play than you would say a $20 buy in tourney. Good luck
