Re: Sam Grizzle

Last time I saw him he was just wandering around the Bellagio poker room talking to people and laughing. Didn't look like he could get into a game though.

Which games and stakes does he usually play?

As I recall they got into raising wars on the first two hands....Sam won them both and was up about $40,000 (as I recall)...picks up his chips and says, "thanks a lot Annie Puke" and leaves her sitting there all pissed. Anybody that has played a lot around Annie knows that she really had this coming. LOL!!
Almost def fake, but A++++ nonetheless.

Re: Sam Grizzle

I saw him a few months ago playing a shoeless Jean-Robert Bellande heads up on the upper deck of the Aria poker room. (Not the Ivey room.) I was on table next to them very interesting banter between them. Some younger Chubby guy with dark hair was sweating Grizzle and he was joining in the fun. Grizzle was the quietest of the three.

Re: Sam Grizzle

While they were spreading a 2-8 Razz game at the Trop every Tuesday night Sam was there one night while I was playing the game and he was felted 2 times before he left. Nick Gullo the poker room Mgr. gave him a gift of coffee before he left. So he did leave with more than he came with.

Re: Sam Grizzle

whenever i see sam i ask him for the 300 he owes me. he doesnt owe me 300 but he doesnt know that and it stops him from asking me for more. he busted a kid one night and the kid was in a daze after sam crushed his ball sack in a car door. the kid says to sam "you only had 2 outs". sam looks at the kid and says "i only needed one of them". tk

He use to play higher stakes, but I think these days he pretty much plays 5/10 for the most part.

I played at a 2/5 table at Bellagio with him a couple years ago. He was going over to the guys at the higher stakes games to bum a buy-in or two. Maybe that was very temporary. He was a character just like on tv.

I don't think the story between Grizzle and Duke is fake, he used to play that big.
