I had 18k of it, not to ashamed to say a lot of people wanted a piece of the action and I though it'd be fun to give pieces to lots of people, deeb openly admitted to having a big piece on twitter and the list of others that were in on it was pretty awesome .

It was a lot of fun playing in Ivey's room and everyone at Aria Poker Room did a great job setting everything up and doing the usual first class job taking care of us. There's always a chance of Aguiar v Cantu III but until then I hope some other people start settling the grudges in Ivey's room, it's probably good for poker to have a good old fashioned duel once in a while!

FWIW idk how this became a grudge match, brandon's beef was really with the WSOP and I though the pokernews interview and twitter bombing was way too funny to anger me! it made for good entertainment though so that's fine by me.

Curious how Cantu was in victory. Gracious? Arrogant?

What a shame! Players of today have no dignity and no balls, selling 86% of your action in a HU 4 rollz/grudge match, what a bunch of slackjawed cornflakes!

Coincidentally, people proudly admit that they had a small portion of their action after they lost.
and when they win it's usually around the lines: "well I had some backers but I can't disclose the percentages and names; let me tell you this much though, I had a good chunk of my action"
