for instance, if I know there is a major donk who likes to bounce around tables who is lurking, then you can be damn sure I'll be sitting out in partially filled games so that I'm guaranteed a seat if the donk comes by. I dont think that's poor etiquette at all, just solid lobby skills and looking out for #1.

yeaah you need to be superskilled for doing this.
and you need to be superskilled to do what stickman does.

its funny how some of you euphemize his doings with word like "discipline, super game and seat selection" blablabla. a monkey can wait for fish.

you dont have to have skills for that. you just have to be super money-grubbing, no conscience at all, not understanding that life is more than gaining some extra bb. so, for doing such stuff, you on the contrary have to have less skills than a normal human being

Re: official stickman discussion thread

st1ckman is the best player in the world when it comes to angleshooting. end of story.

some examples because ppl asked for it (and i have tons that i dont even remember)

1. on partypoker the button used to change every single time somebody didnt post in a HU on a ringgame-table. so it looks like this: st1ckman sits and seat 2, i join on seat 5, software gives me the button first, i post, he sits out and sits back in immediately. after a few seconds a new hand could start, he gets the button and now posts obv. he was doing it like this forever just to avoid missing action because if he was the one to be on sitout he wouldnt necessarily realize that somebody joined and a game started. once i tried to find out how long he would do it because i was waiting for opponents anyways and had nothing better to do (im a nerd like him obv) and he kept on doing it for more than 2 hours until i finally gave up... (his nerdskills are just far too superior)

2. i was playing 50/100 HU on stars and st1ckman joined the table. i asked the other guy if he wanted to play HU and said that i would prefer HU. fish said: ok lets play HU. i said: ok fine HU pls. st1ckman sits in. well we play 1-2 orbits then i tell the fish that we should change tables because he might not have read the chat, so we sit out and join another table. st1ckman follows us instantly, sitting down even before the first hand was dealt, so we both go on sitout and ask him to leave (still friendly but already annoyed). he says he wont leave because i asked for HU first and therefore convinced the fish to agree with me and this cuts his EV and he wont tolerate it. im like: WTF?! and ask the opponent to change tables again, so we do and same story. now im really getting pissed off, i mean st1ckman made like what? 6 million USD? and he still cant let me play 50/100 HU? now he even starts telling the fish, that hes a huge fish and will lose all his money, but in HU it will be a lot faster so he should allow others to join because then he could play more hands before the inevitable finally comes reality and he busts. now im really thinking: WTF IS THIS GUY DOING?

this is not a unique thing. he talked to fish like this pretty much exactly like this several times, its a huge joke.

end of story was that the other guy left cause he said he was annoyed and ive never seen that guy again.

3. on partypoker there are only limited tables for HU (3 for each higher limit) st1ckman wants to have 1 table at 50/100 and so he joins all 3 tables (theyre all taken usually) and hopes to win the highcarding for the button, he then posts on every single table he gets the button and forces you into yet another lose-lose situation. if you post you can keep the table but it will cost you 0,15-0,2BB in ev or you could sitout and get kicked automatically after 3 minutes. when you play youre big blind he NEVER plays a second hand. again: this guy made a fortune playing poker and still needs to **** with ppl like this.

4. after example #2 happening i got so mad at him (not necessarily because of the money but because he is the most gigantic bastard in this world) that i start to abuse a leak he had on stars cause he wasnt aware that a certain seat will get the button every time in the first hand. so i sat down at every single fast table he was sitting at and just played the button and left. i did this like 3-4 times til he finally started to block every single table i had open. at some time we had about 30 200/400 tables open where he was always taking position on me and was sitting out. it was ridicolous. i emailed stars about it and they asked him whats wrong with him and he starts to cry like a little baby that i buttoned him 2 or 3 times (he overexaggerated a LOT! - theyve sent me his email) i then told him that hes certainly like 30 buttons up on me so he should get used to eat the **** he keeps on doing to other ppl ALL THE ****ING TIME and has been doing for YEARS but of course he just refuses to accept that hes the world's biggest jackass and keeps on blaming me. stars doesnt know what to do and kindly asks me to not button him anymore because he said he wont block me anymore in that case.


(.......................)


everybody who admires st1ckman is nothing better than him.


i know i dont seem like the nicest guy in the world at the tables either because of my chat-tilting-problems but every german guy here can guarantee you that im a LOT friendlier and easier to like in real life. this guy on the other hand is just the most pathetic robot ever. what does he have in life anyways? he sits at the tables EVERY single day for almost the whole day. he rarely ever takes a day off. of course he has a lot of money but what does he use it for? he can buy a great car, so what? i bet my whole bankroll that he doesnt have a lot of friends and its quite likely he doesnt have a girlfriend who really loves him and is not just pretending cause hes rich.

this guy is one of poorest pokeraddicts in the industry.

What you did should not be tolerated, if a huge fish sat instead of Stick then u probably wouldn't have said anything and if you would have then that is even worse for the games than what u did when Stick sat

Then proceeds to go sit at each and every one of KPR's tables, hoping he forgot to uncheck autopost somewhere, and sure enough, does find that to be the case at a table or two, so he steals KPR's BB. KPR later confronts st1ck about this, and St1ck tries to justify it by saying something like "I've had my BB stolen from me before too" and refuses to send the money back.

KPR feel free to correct me if a detail or two is off in that, it's been awhile since I heard that story from you.
KPR needs to balance his sit-out range imo.

Re: official stickman discussion thread

What kpr told to Schneids isnt true there was prehistory, plus many people did same thing vs me so i dont see why would i return money to him if noone does the same to me.
Kobe is trying to isolate fishes in hu constantly and obv should be punished for doing it cause almost no other pros do the same when 3rd pro joins.
I started twice more 6 max-10max tables vs fishes than any of you lazy asses, and all of you joined those games and made profit.
Everything else is true but i do it for reasons most of you wont udnerstand
