2021 Poker New Year's Resolutions

A new year is upon us and that means a time for reflection and looking ahead as poker players set their New Year’s resolutions for 2021, only to forget about them a week later.

In a BonusCodePoker survey of hundreds of poker players from all walks of life a few buddies I have on Skype, we present to you the 5 most popular 2021 poker resolutions shared by players.

#1 – Stop asking utility providers if they accept Sweeps Coins

Although Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are being widely adopted across the world, nobody can tell me why Sweeps Coins haven’t enjoyed the same mass acceptance by merchants.

U.S. poker player efforts to directly use the sweepstakes-based currency for items such as utilities and taxes keep coming up short. And yes, this is despite poker players repeatedly emphasizing to customer service that these are not measly “Gold Coins.”

#2 – Avoid playing in any event advertised as a “WSOP Online Main Event”

If there is anything poker players learned during 2020 is that you can’t expect any World Series of Poker event labeled as an “Online Main Event” to give you legendary status in the poker world.

Ok, feel free to play the event if you want a chance to win over a million bucks. Just make sure you won’t get ever sick of hearing “who the hell is that?” or being the WSOP’s fall-back champion if COVID-20 becomes a thing.

#3 – Stop assuming anyone over 70 ever bluffs


#4 – Design a mask to protect from the virus while allowing me to smoke a cigarette

I spent much of 2020 waiting for this innovation to hit the market, but I guess at this point I’m going to have to fucking do it myself.

#5 – Complain about owning too much and too little Bitcoin

Look, I realize that nobody wants to hear about it. Unless I do it on Twitter — everybody loves that!

#6 – Bathe

Sure, this is a given at this point and it’s beyond cliche, but I’ll be damned if we aren’t going to use this platform to do what we can to provide a public service to the poker playing community.
