Re: Sam Grizzle

I heard a great story involving Sam. Can't remember if my friend who told it to me witnessed it or heard it from someone who did.

Anyways this guy who lent Sam $5,000 a few years ago (non regular poker player, prob high stakes businessman fish) runs into Sam at the Bellagio and asked him for the money he owes. Sam, calmly and like he has every intention of paying asked the guys name. Guy tells him who he is and Sam pulls out a little pad and starts flipping through pages until he stops and says, "I got here that you owe me five thousand!" and the guy went ape**** on him and went straight for his neck.

I like u less than I like me. U seem to always be trying to impress anyone who will listen. Either stop it and realize I'm a total loser who has no control or chill.

Re: Sam Grizzle

It's true what someone mentioned earlier in the thread that he punched Rod Peete in the face (at the Bicycle Club). Hadn't heard the "sucker punch" claim previously, but it's certainly believable.

Unrelated story I witnessed:

About 12 years ago he was playing No Limit on one of the Chicago area boats. It was the big game on that boat.
He gets up to stretch, and a pretty Asian dealer walks by.
He starts to talk to her, and quickly reaches down, picks up a big stack of $100 chips, and while speaking to her makes sure she notices the chips, holding them at chest level and shuffling them from hand to hand while he chats her up.

[The meanest poker player isn't in question- it's Sam Grizzle. I
haven't been playing much lately but the one time I played Sam was on a
rush and ribbing all of us every hand. He had just played Annie Duke
and beat her for four racks of black chips. He lost a small pot, got
up, said "nice doing business, Annie Puke." He was beating Tommy Fisher
every pot and announced they had taken the -er off Tom's last
name--Tommy Fish. Doyle Brunson RGP Post]

Re: Sam Grizzle

I sat next to him early this week at the 2pm wsop deep stack. To be honest, he was pissing me off for the first half hour because he wouldn't shut the **** up, but as the coup,e of hours went on he just got funnier and funnier. He caned about 5 or 6 large vodkas in that time and to start with I thought he was just some lunatic. He was three and four betting almost 75% of raises in the first hour. He came out with some quality quotes and comebacks, can't remember any right now though.

Highlight was when I asked him for change after he'd lost a pot and he kicked off a bit about ethics (lol) and etiquette and refused to give me any. He had a go at about four of the table but was very amusing in the end. There was an older lady who was quite sweet and ABC and after he'd called some famous player a 1950's term about her sexuality and she'd corrected him for his out of date usage and said what the current PC term was she said sorry, she didn't mean to offend him he replied "don't worry ma'am, you didn't offend me, but you are boring the **** out of me, next time I'm at your table I'll bring a pillow" or something like that.

Shouldn't laugh as I'm no homophobe but was just the look on her face and the situation.

One of my highlites of my week at the wsop for sure.

I'd root for Grizzle if he played in the Ladies Championship event. Would be the perfect anti-hero if he won.

He might just sucker punch one of them.

Re: Sam Grizzle

This happened in the $2,500 Razz with Bleznick

Quote:
Once again we heard a commotion at Table 430 and made out way over. Apparently Jared Bleznick had said the f-bomb and both Sam Grizzle and Raymond Davis were lightheartedly pestering him about it, though they believed he should receive a penalty.

"There's no f-bomb rule this year," Barry Greenstein chimed it as action came to a halt. Nonetheless the dealer called the floor over.

"Every time I open my mouth these two guys call for a floor," Bleznick said shaking his head with a smile. The floor arrived and explained that this year there is no penalty for saying the f-bomb unless it is abusive and/or directed at another player.

"All I said was 'Who the f**k would give Sam Grizzle $2,500 to play this tournament,'" Bleznick said, which inspired a round of laughter from the entire tournament floor. The tournament director determined that it wasn't abusive enough to warrant a penalty.

"I can't believe they let him get away with that," Davis said afterwards.

Greenstein then elaborated on the relaxed f-bomb rule: "Some of these people don't have a very good vocabulary, so it's probably the only adjective they know."

Re: Sam Grizzle

I was playing BJ with Sam Friday morning, he went bust pretty quickly and sat there taking up a seat and yucking it up with some dude for a good hour or so. I assume he asked him for money after. This was at the RIO

I asked him about his twitter page, he said it was him, but then I asked if he even had a cell phone and he pulled out a flip phone.

Confirmed not Sam Grizzle twitter.
