I am trying not to react to a situation that has nothing to do with me but...
I am downstairs in our small townhome and just heard my husband curse upstairs. He's playing online poker and sounds like he lost. Then after the first curse, another louder and more offensive one. Not loud enough to wake the two sleeping kids but come on! "It's a game!" I want to shout. He plays for money so it's not just a game. Then don't play for money-- I would think that's the best solution, but he says if he can make some money doing something he enjoys, why not? Because of the reaction when he loses!
Thanks for listening. I just knew I could come here.

Sounds like me, lol. I'm afraid that I have fallen victim to online poker, and yes cursing is part of the game 🙂

My husband does that while playing computer games. Its so frustraiting. My brother in law is big on the online poker. In one week he made 8000 dollars that was a good week though. He does the small games with very very small buy in and wins those and uses the money that he wins as a buy in in the bigger games. Most weeks he wins 200-400. I expect to see him in the world series of poker some day

I can relate!!! I have played online poker too and it is very EASY to get excited one moment (when you win) and then enraged the next (when you lose!)... Poker is one of those games where you can lose to someone who may not have a better hand than you, just PRETENDS they do!!! It's very frustrating, especially when you are playing for real money!!!! I seriously doubt that anyone has ever really "made" money gambling... most of it (probably ALL of it) goes right back into the game 99.9% of the time. But, it can be fun.

It is also very addictive! I heard that they were going to pass a law that makes online gaming illegal. That may be a good thing for some people...

Try not to let his reactions get to you. He's in the ZONE when he's playing. I know. I've been there.

Thanks everyone. I don't see his side of it. It's helpful to get your perspective.
