While I agree with your statement, Lilu7 has at least calmed down and seemed (slightly) more reasonable in his most recent post.

His other problem is he not open to criticism from much better players than he is. In his mind he is a crusher still but unlucky for years, so if regs who crush much higher stakes both live and online drop by and tell him his game needs serious work, he dismisses then outright because reasons. And I know he crushed high stakes a decade ago or whatever but itís 2020 lol
I got just 2 questions for you : primo, how old are you? Segundo, how many years have you been playing professionally?

He hasn't changed, he just switched his target from DGAF to everyone who posts in this thread (other than him). I mean, he's calling everyone either an ass sucker or a vicious hater ffs. Look at his post history - he stirs **** up everywhere, constantly "calling people out" and/or being extremely hostile and patronizing in nearly all his posts. Would you be surprised if beneath the arrogant, condescending surface, there is just a very insecure, miserable kid acting out to prove something to himself?

Re: 2k- a poker story (wtmfl;dr obv)

Ode to DGAF

His reads are good, infrequently paying off the river
Drinking a cold Bud Light, at 45 he’s most likely got a bad liver

Even the haters must admit, the podcast is real
But to support at $4.44 a month, they won’t even forgo one meal

When he bluffs, it works several times per session
However, in the big pots they seem to always have the aggression

They were at the top of their range, he quite often says
But in reality he would have been better off taking the 5 South to Juarez

Variance is a *****, no one declares more than our hero
Unfortunately, as of right now, he doesn’t have much dinero

Re: 2k- a poker story (wtmfl;dr obv)

He does not want the 4.22
from those who post on 2p2
because they already do quite enough
bumping his thread while acting cool and tough
painting a picture for all to see
of this horrible thing called nittery

EWWWWWW

I wish them well, i really do
maybe some sex and therapy too?
and if they see me at the casino
I will see if there's a dealer
heads up no limit, 1 on 1
come on guys, it'll be fun!

Re: 2k- a poker story (wtmfl;dr obv)

Hey DGAF, how are you feeling in regards to the silver lining that some poker rooms will now be forcing their patrons to play 4 max for the time being? Bet you never would have imagined that could ever happen.

Somewhat...

I don't think edge gap is the issue though. Nor do I think decreasing edge should be an initiative--at all. Poker needs big/long-time winners for many reasons.

How about pros just finally ****ing get it that they need to provide a worthwhile experience for those who come to light some disposable income on fire and have good time?

It really is ^^^ simple.

IMHO.

Re: 2k- a poker story (wtmfl;dr obv)

Having played ~150 hours in LA just before Covid I do think the 100bb cap games can help the spots to stay in the game longer and ensure people are happy to splash about more than deeper stack games. Introducing more limit poker is an awful idea imo, I don't think anybody under the age of 80 thinks that would work well. People just love to say all in...

Regs do obviously need to do a better job of creating a fun environment for people to play in and I can see why OP/Limon etc have disdain for the euro regs in the LA games. That being said though, I think it needs to be acknowledged that the UK regs don't deserve to be lumped into that category as we definitely do a better job of this than any of the local regs and ofc much better than any of the Spanish/French regs.

So whats the update with coronavirus? Who is he borrowing money from to make his childsupport? I know surfdoc was waiving the rental fee on one of his rentals, so maybe his food, gas and alcohol can be covered through the Patreon donations, so that is a good start at closing the gap.

That Pope, I created a poem for you after reading your post. It is not as good as DGAF's but it will have to suffice for now:

Roses are Red
Violets are Blue

Your'e one of the haters
That DGAF refers to, so

Bro, who hurt you? Why are you so upset and curious about someone’s life who it appears you hate? Did you and DGAF used to play and he owned you in the big pots?

Why do you care so much people support the content? To be honest even if you don’t like the content, the extra perks are definitely cool and worth it.

Def agree buyins should be capped at 100 or 150 bigs for almost all games.

Huh, why the hate? I wasn’t being mean. I’m not listening except for Sean’s interview so I was hoping someone who is listening could fill me in.

What I'm suggesting by putting in caps IS giving them a worthwhile experience. Its doing it systematically instead of relying on getting all pros on board with some unwritten code. That's never gonna happen when all the incentives are set up in a way that rewards the opposite.

What do you think would be harder?

1. Getting all pros to consistently straddle, give -EV action to recs, drink occasionally and socialize with the table even though all of their incentives are set up to do none of those things,

or

2. Putting an 80bb cap on the game?

The latter accomplishes everything you're trying to accomplish with the former imo.

Agreed. Anywhere I've ever played the games get worse when they raise the buy ins assuming the max was already at least 100bb. Yes its nice to be able to cover some whale with 1000 blinds but it's just unsustainable. People play way tighter deep which you can exploit but it's not as profitable as them sending it in with garbage and not as fun for them. In one of the games I played a lot before covid it was a good group of people most of them time- most regs weren't parasitic robots and the bad players just wanted to have fun losing. Some of these guys would tighten up so much when they got deep. A couple would even just rack up go eat and come back a couple hours later with 100bb or whatever. As long as the right people were at the table we would just let them go south. These are people who would dump 10k-20k 1,000 at a time but don't want to dump 5k-10k in one hand.

At nosebleeds everyone tends to buy in huge so that's different.

Agree 100 percent on UK players. They're awesome. Talkative,will get **** faced at the table and play super fast. Even the ones who play no hands are fun.
