Top Ten Ways to Get Your Points Correct

I really hate to write reactionary items, but here it is.  Letterman's Top Ten List of How to keep your Poker Points from being wrong.
  1. If you have a name like "David" sometimes sign in as "Dave" other times like "David".
  2. If your last name has lots of vowels and does not roll off the toungue well, scribble your name and make it hard for the data entry person to read.  They don't need to use all the vowels.
  3. On the new member registration form, sign up with a last name of just "R", then sign out using the last name of "Arugula" or "Tavern". With so many different names, you are sure to get your points straight.
  4. Sign up on the new member registration form with what is on your birth certificate despite that no one, not even your Mother, has ever called you that  Then sign out at the Winners table with the name "Bubba".
  5. Who needs a member number anyway?
  6. Name your children the same name as yourself.  And make sure it was your Dad who made you, the older one, Junior.
  7. Don't use your last name when you sign in and out.  How many Roberts or Johns or Steves can there be?
  8. Don't tell Robert you think your points are wrong.  Just post public messages about what a bad job he does.
  9. When you realize the quarter has reset the points, pretend you knew it all along.
  10. Don't use your member number.  Whenever you complain about your points being wrong and Robert re-sends you your number number, just ignore him.
