Wow, that's an impressive offer.

money?

fwf has pretty good discipline when it comes to such offers afaik, so i'd say the chance of him getting involved in some degen action is ~5% based on his previous challenges. i mean, he even played 10k hands in 7 days or smth when the offer was 200 bucks to first 5

Bobby Robson R.I.P

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFN5n-MF_dA

There are a number of legendary stories about random members of the public going up to him in a supermarket for an autograph, and ending up 3 hours later still talking about the game. A real gem.

That video reminds me of one the either AE or Bobbo posted about a college basketball coach who was also riddled with cancer. That guy gave a much more eloquent speech, but I find them equalling moving, for the Robson video I get moved by the standing ovation at the beginning (*very* abnormal to get that kind of reception in the U.K). Robson was in my list of three 'super awesome old guys who are absolutely the nuts in both a personal and professional capacity and love, love, love their field of work', along with David Attenborough and Gary Becker.

I'd encourage people to read further into the awesomeness that was Bobby Robson, and also to post the guy who you feel similarly about. I'm sure there are some gems out there that I'd love to hear about.

Apparently one of the players named "polkar" who is a reg at these games sent him $20 for god knows why.

I have no clue if this is real or if its some kind of scam I was just hoping maybe someone that knows durr could get ahold of him so that he could make sure his account is ok. I was more concerned that toms account had been hacked than of the scam.

Current player search shows him sitting at no tables

-Jason
I know this is probably nothing, but I was railing a 200/400 PLO table (which had a seat open and GusHansen sitting) and Durrrr was on the rail saying some really random stuff to the railbirds. Unless my eyes are really terrible it was his account (four Rs) but he was saying really random stuff and not sounding like I imagine Durrrr to at all. I know that's ******ed as I have no idea what Durrrr sounds like and there's nothing suspicious in him railing a game, but it just seemed odd.

When someone dies, their name is always remembered better than it probably was. Everyone eulogizes what a great person they are and remembers the many fantastic stories. With Bobby, you get the feeling that any amount of exaggeration is justified, by all accounts he just seemed a great guy and a true sporting legend. I'm not a massive football fan but Bobby was always someone I respected and wanted to do well. RIP.

don't forget the Ariel Schneller Memorial Drunken 10/20 HA Scholarship as well.

FWF,

You should consider not self-excluding yourself from flipping if it results in you spewing stacks at 25-50NL to get your gambling fix.

07-31-2009 , 08:27 PM
you should make it '5k if ppl see me make a spewy play' and let the railbirds with less than 20k decide what counts as a 'spew'

How else do you propose these busto grinders label themselves as? If a HB 8 asks you what you do, you do not say the words bum, fish, hunting, grinding, busto, or cent. Maybe just mention one time you play cards and exaggerate your skill and assets instead of saying PPP. There's also incentive for $50k/y's to boost there perceived status from average to special/different when there's no real boost in saying you are a PPP when you play high stakes.
