Re: Durrr in process of losing 60k+ in a chess bet.. good month for ra

"nononononono, too much time to invest to be anywhere near good- i'm old to start now etc etc.

it's more frustrating than poker because there is nothing to blame besides your lack of ability for not succeeding."

I agree chess has a much longer learning curve than poker does (at least to become reasonable) so not something you should just randomly get into hoping to become great quickly. I actually feel the opposite about the frustration factor though, I find losing at chess much easier to handle (though of course that has something to do with the fact that chess online is basically only for pride not $) as you know you have control over your destiny in it whereas you can't do anything in poker when the cards happen to not be cooperating.
