Results - Internet Poker Other Findings Around 12% of Internet poker players sex swap Those who do - fundamentally poorer monetary execution "I am male, and different players see females as weaker/not tantamount to men. Additionally when a lady player makes a major wager, a male player will probably see that she is feigning, and he will call, thus when playing as a lady, I make huge wagers when I make them trust, the male player will believe I\'m feigning." (Male, United States) "… to maintain a strategic distance from players that vibe they can scare me with vast raises since I\'m female, and to evade inappropriate behavior."

Focus 1 - Education and Transparency: U nderstanding Payout Percentages I might truly want to have more wins contrasted with the measure of cash I spend. Case in point, the principal year I began internet betting, I spent about $46,000 of which I just won about $22,000, and it has just deteriorated from that point forward. I once in a while win, winning significance in the event that I wager anywhere in the range of $50 to $100, I think of it as a win of $1500 to $2500. I might truly want to win more. Most recent 2 years I think I just won 1-2 times where I changed out and had my rewards sent to me. Likewise, I might truly want to have more illumination on when you say "Payout Percentages". What does the gambling club and the forces that be consider as "payouts". How would you figure it and what do you construct your data with respect to? Does payout rates mean genuine cash that individuals got the money for out with from what they spent or what the club paid out well beyond what was spent at the clubhouse? That is not clear and in this manner "payout percentages" has no significance for me since that could mean anything. Female, matured 46-55, USA, Retired

Focus 2 - Case against CSR: Responsibility Rests with Players If you can\'t control yourself, you should be bankrupt. We\'ve sold ourselves as a general public on the possibility that people aren\'t in charge of anything that transpires. On the off chance that they\'re alcoholic, this is on the grounds that they were mishandled, or their qualities arrange them to it. In the event that they\'re fat, it\'s not the gallon of dessert they\'re eating, this is on the grounds that Kraft constrained them to get fat. On the off chance that they slip and fall in an eatery, it\'s not on account of they were strolling around babbling on a mobile phone with no intimation what\'s going on, this is on the grounds that there was a little wet patch on the floor that the proprietor carelessly neglected to tidy up. Crazy. Self discipline is dead. I\'m certain these controls are valuable for individuals that can\'t help themselves, however. I simply don\'t feel any compassion for the individuals who need it.
