Default Re: Introducing new players to poker...

Earlier in my life I was a skydiver. I tried to get other people to skydive whenever possible. Felt it was my "duty" to the sport. One day, my girlfriend, who I had talked into jumping, broke her back skydiving. Never tried to bring anyone else into the sport again.

Poker may be good for you and me, but just look around the card room, many people's lives are very miserable as a result of poker. Do you want your friends to join them?

I think the best we can do for poker is to make new players feel welcome and help insure that they have a good time while losing their money.

As for family and friends, I look to them for love and companionship, not gambling.
