Have you seen what's actually happening on their screens? I cannot imagine anyone trading fulltime from an Internet cafe though. Only done in emergencies.

Maybe they own a poker affiliate site?

1) Who knows what they were talking about.
2) Who knows if they were baiting a scam, to be honest making the posession of large abouts of liquid assets public invites trouble from everyone including the IRS, kidnappers, relatives, fallen women, inventors, film makers, poker professionals looking for WSOP backers and worse.
3) Ask them what they are doing remembering (2)
4) Even if they are actually making money, some dufus that bought a powerball ticket will make a fortune. Do you really care how they pick their numbers?
5) If you took $10,000 and bought options on a volitile stock you could easily have a string of $1000 days (either direction). Even if you know what you are doing you will likely have more losing streaks than winning.

This may sound funny....but honestly, I would pay someone to go in and ask them about saying they were the one who overheard them talking.

I would be super curious about this and wouldnt be able to let it go...so I would pay a buddy of mine $20 to go in there and ask whats going on while I sat in the corner and listened.

You will let us know how it goes wont you?

I read an article about some guys who supposedly made a lot of money with this. Not really sure how it works though. Have you tried it yourself ? Seems kinda weird to sell virtual kit and real estate. /images/graemlins/tongue.gif

I only read an article about some joker who bought a piece of virtual real estate in that game for $26.5K and he's expecting to make a profit by selling pieces of it to other chumps in the game. Haven't tried it myself, just seems like one of those massive multi player rpgs, in which you actually use money. So you deposit like $100 in your account and you can buy stuff in the game and try to make money. Seems like a waste of time, but could be kind of fun.
