Re: Sam Grizzle

Quote:
About 14 years ago, I was playing in a $150-$300 hold'em game at Commerce Casino. Early in the morning, Sam Grizzle walks in and starts commenting on how good the game is. When asked why he's not playing, he pulls out his bankroll ($2) and sarcastically asks how much the buy-in is.

He leaves, and after talking to Puggy Pearson, comes back with $10,000 and starts to play. Now, after about an hour, Sam and Puggy get into an argument (about what, I can't remember offhand), and Puggy picks up his $10,000 and half of what Sam was winning, leaving Sam with about $400, far short of the required buy-in. Fortunately for Sam, no one says anything. Sam goes all in five or six times right away, and in about four hours, he is winning around $40,000.

If this isn't amazing enough, Sam quits the game, announcing that he's going to do us a big favor and go play the tournament, allowing us to keep what money we had left. (He also told us how smart he was and dumb we were, of course.) You can guess what happened next: Sam the genius wins the tournament and another $120,000 to go with the $40,000 he won from us earlier that morning; not bad for a guy who showed up at the casino with $2 in his pocket.

It's now 6 a.m. and he's been in the Commerce Casino for exactly 24 hours. It's time to get some sleep; that is, if he were a normal human, but Sam's far from that. He comes up to the top section, where there's a tough $800-$1,600 razz game in progress. Sam stumbles over and bellies up to the table, losing his entire $160,000 in a fairly short period of time.

Instead of becoming upset, Sam simply told everyone how dumb they were, shook his head, and walked out of the casino with the exact same $2 he had showed up with the day before. Just another day in the life of a gambler.
<3 Sam

Re: Sam Grizzle

He was at B yesterday outside the poker room looking for some $$
He saw me seeing him and had a brief thought that he could get a buyin from me since one time a few months ago I listened to his old poker stories

Said sorry Sam I'm a little short today and then bought in big to the 10-20 game fun times

Re: Sam Grizzle

wsop, a guy is all in against sam. he asks the guy (an amateur) to show one of his cards. amateur does it. sam calls the floorman. Hand is dead because its not allowed to show a card. Amateur is out, sam takes the chips.

That sucks, I've read that in the past and I'll probably be vilified for it but this lady made a lot of stupid choices when the writing was probably all over the wall many times over. Sure Sam is responsible but she's responsible too for getting in that spot in the first place.
