No offense, but there needs to be a lower difficulty setting than "Normal" for people like me. I used to be doing all right, but ever since a glitch caused me to have to start over from scratch I just haven't been able to win.
It's not that I get bad hands too often; I'm mature enough to understand that Poker is at its core a game of chance & sometimes you're just not lucky. What's really made things miserable for me is the betting system. Characters (especially Max & Strong Bad) are always raising the stakes to insane levels (sometimes before the flop is even dealt!) when I'm not yet sure of the strength of my own hand.
As a result I'm left with 2 choices: either call a bet I don't feel safe calling because there's a slight chance the risk may pay off, or fold & feel like a coward when the flop turns out where I'd have won big if I had the guts to stay in the game. The patch has just made matters worse since now whenever someone raises on a bet, the new stakes are guaranteed to be at least double the previous amount.
I'm not the sort who likes to make big wagers when I don't know if I can win. Again, I'm not asking for an increase in my chances of winning so much as for a way to get the other players to ease up a bit on the wagers, at least until I get my groove back.
