Ty TJ as well... hearing from you both means a lot to me... very wise words and great advice always from you two.

I hope everyone has a great rest of the day.

When I was a kid there was a Burger King about 3 blocks from my house. I used to love to go there and one of my favorite things to get was a strawberry milkshake. I always thought it was made special just for me. Then one day I discovered that there was really only one dispenser for ice cream and it was vanilla. If you ordered a strawberry or chocolate, all they did was pour out a vanilla and squirt some flavoring and chopped fruit into it and then stir it up.

It seems to me the Drunk Tank is a little bit like that. We started out with a basic vanilla, and for some it was good, but since then we have added some new flavors and with each new squirt created a new milkshake. Now we have a new flavor and to me it is better, because it still has that same vanilla base, but includes much more. I will tell you that I am a member of several other home games and will say without a doubt that the Drunk Tank is still the best Home Game on the planet.

Now it appears there are some that would prefer to go back to that plain vanilla milkshake. Now I do not want any players to leave this club, but I also do not want any players to stay if they are unhappy. For those players I would like to point out that there are two buttons on Home Games lobby window. One to “join” a club, and another to “create” a club. If you think there is a better club out there, where everybody is friendly, and they all get along, and they only play the cards you think they should, well then join it. If you don’t think there is a club like that, then create one.

Like I said I am not advocating that anyone leave, but sometimes you have to do what my wife tells me to do all the time. You just have to get happy in the same pants you got unhappy in.

This has to be the quote of the month, Never let anyone take your happiness away.

Well, I haven't had a chance to read through this whole post, BUT I am getting the gist of it quite well. John, Sand, Chilli and a few others have hit the nail on the head. When Johnny and I came up with creating a PSO type event the primary purpose was the following, or at least is what I understood and thought was agreed on...

Primarily, we wanted to keep everyone we played with together to still have fun while offering a challenge in an environment where we had to bring our best game to the table so we could continue to learn and each improve our own games. One of the things I felt we all agreed on is we didn't want The Tanks version of PSO to turn into a Donkfest, unfortunately when I took a hiatus a couple of months ago due to returning to work I had started to see things shifting. Now that I am back I am still seeing what I saw when I took a break and it's being confirmed by other members. Not only that but in the beginning, if you took a 4-6-8 week break, when you came back you damn well could be rest assured you were going to see the same people there at the tables. Now, those same members we tried to keep together are no where to be found at that table on a regular basis. I understand that people get busy, life changes, things happen, BUT you don't lose the amount of regular players all around the same time if there isn't something going on.

When we started these, I was more than willing to sit up half the night on a work night to play because I was learning something or reinforcing what I had learned. Right now with how the games are going, I'm not staying to do this because there are times I feel like I am sitting at a PSO table.

No one has to agree with me, life would be boring if everyone did. This is just me voicing my opinion and how I feel.

I was hoping that we would be able to get back on track, though with some of the sentiments being expressed here I'm not thinking that is possible.

Notice to Members


The board has reached a tentative solution and come to a compromise. It may not make everybody happy but is the best resolution we could hope for.

Effsea's original Drunk Tank will remain open to all players. The nightly games will continue to be scheduled as they are now. We would ask that all the current players continue to play and would also ask that all ex-players feel free to return. In addition, we would also welcome any new members that are friends of friends to join. The same two rules will be in place and strictly enforced. They are: Respect the other players and Have fun.

A new club has also been formed and will be run by some of our senior members. We wish them success and realize that some of our members may feel more comfortable playing there. It is important to know that members are NOT restricted to one club or another. You can be in both. Invitations to the new club will begin to circulate soon.

Hopefully we will continue to have exciting, challenging, and friendly games in both venues.

Thank you very much for re-posting this Michelle , As I read through this and looked at the link that you posted of all the condolences to Rockman's family and realized he passed on the same day as my mom, just a few hours before her. I didn't realize I was even at the computer that day to send my condolences to his family , but , I guess i was on in the evening .December 30th , 2010 will always be stuck in my mind as one of the saddest days of my life in and outside of the poker comunity...I'm bout to tear up just thinking back to that day Crying or Very sad .....sorry I'm a softy lol...Anyways I think the Drunk tank should put on a Rockman rememberance tourney on the 30th of next month , I think that would be cool....Thanks again for re-posting as I didn't get to see this post the 1st time....Anyways RIP ROCKMAN and MOM!!!!
