Really, dude?

They both seem to suffer (probably unknowingly) from Norman Mailer Complex. Non-redemptive personal lives that produce some first class literary classics. Norman Mailer produced some wonderful novels (and a plethura of egocentric trash) while chewing through eight wives and effing virtually every friend he had in the world throughout his hermitic life. In hindsight, they aren't so bad if all you can say about them is that they glare at you at gatherings and give really awful interviews.

Mason's reviews appear in his Gambling Theory book as well as the 2+2 Online Magazine. I don't think he has had time to review any recently.

The question was why is he so hated in the poker industry. Anyone who comes off like an a-hole in public is inviting hate. That's all.

You're trying way too hard in your post to come off as an educated person, BTW. High school freshman?

Haters gonna hate. Mason, you are a gentleman and a scholar. Or, to quote my Latin textbook, "He's a good man, and a Greek."

End of discussion. Don't want to risk being accused of trolling.

Re: Why is Mason Malmuth so hated in the poker industry?

control freak dick who ended up with the most popular forum and bookstore?

i'm not surprised he's hated too

also the modding on 2+2 is nazi-esque so that certainly contributes

The reply of a genius.

I once dated a Mensa member. She was one of the dumbest people I've ever met. Had big terts, though. I'm guessing you still live with your parents and have big terts yourself.

My parents are dead. Thank you for asking. I would be more than pleased to compare CVs with you in PM, however, not risking trolling accusations in open forum. I look forward to your pm.

I never claimed to be smart, I was just pointing out that you're not as sharp as you pretended to be with that laughably pretentious reply to my original post about MM.

So whatever happened to your "End of discussion"? If you're really intelligent, you'll stick to that.

P.S. "My parents are dead" further proves my original point that you can't even grasp a simple figure of speech.

He's also published reviews in the Books and Publications forum that may not appear in the two cited resources. Those reviews published after Gambling Theory and before the magazine started can be found in the archives. It's possible that he adds them to Gambling Theory when there's a new addition. I'm not sure as my copy might be as old as some of the posters on 2+2.

The best word to describe Mason is "indifferent".

But I don't know him too well, so as you two plus twoers like to say "whatever"

Re: Why is Mason Malmuth so hated in the poker industry?

People hate Mason? I find that hard to believe. He'll never be Mr. Congeniality, but abject hate? Naah.

Even if you don't like him, give him credit. He's made his passion his empire, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Semi-grunching. From what I've seen of MM's posts here, it seems he does attempt to be cordial and reasonable (almost in a robot customer-service type way). However, I've seen David Sklansky say some pretty mean stuff to people
