Default PokerStars Beggars...

Alright guys, I've been playing pokerstars $1 & $5 sit and go's and there have been alot of people in the chat box asking players to transfer $1.20 or $5.50 for another game.

Does this happen alot on PokerStars? I remember watching one of hustlrs videos and there was someone begging for money in the chat box in his game.

I'm sick of tramps begging in the street lying next to a cash machine and asking for some "change" when they know I've just withdrawn £50 from the machine. And now there are people begging in online poker games?

It's ridiculous! There should be some sort of system in place for people begging in a chat box. BAN THEM!

Out of the last 10 games I've played there have been three "beggars", this means that there's roughly a 30% chance of there being a beggar in the room.

I'm already annoyed half the time because of the amount of fish in there drawing out on me and now there's the extra 30% annoyance factor from people who need to get a job!!!

What do you guys think of the begging epidemic on pokerstars?

Or, ask for their address to send the $100 cheque to, then we can have an imaginative thread on here to discuss an alternative delivery package.

Ha Ha. This reminds me of the school kids in these parts who took to sending their Headmaster a range of things 'on approval'. Best mail order thing they ever sent him was a self-assembly green house (glass house) for the garden. Unfortunately, the days of paying for something after you've seen it are long gone.

Sample size = +EV.

Also, why even say 'roughly'. It's exactly 30% ldo.
