I've begged Andy to write a book. A book of essays would be the nuts. He doesn't want to/has no time/whatev. C'mon, buddy, at least do a well.

Also, I doubt if Andy wants to search for the wells and other interesting stuff, but if you guys have the links to them, why don't you make it easy for him and PM them to good ol' Andy so he can link them in a sticky.

This, kind of what they meant, the way they have it organized in the O8 forum is pretty nice/easy to use.

Didn't mean that it wasn't a compliment.. Just meant that since me and him use to grind and have some awesome matches and have since decided not to play each other anymore that I could take your compliment of him as one to myself. hmm thats kind of confusing, you get what I'm saying though.

I'm pretty sure the only reason Andy hasn't banned your sorry, low-class ass, is because some fool went and made you a mod. It's unfortunate in the extreme that I cannot put you on ignore.

This is the Stud forum. And until you grow up and stop messing up the place with your personal issues, take your low self-esteem into therapy where it belongs, kiddo.

SG - I expect more from you than to feed this boy's BS. Knock it off.

I will leave it. Dan has been dishing out crap (posting style, advice, etc) for a while and I am just the one to call him out. Sadly, I'm the only one who will actually say anything (as many agree with me.) I will leave it alone going forward.

Listen, I sympathise completely with your sentiment, but it's just a bit of fun and LC / bit of content now and again.

eh i think everyones kinda called everyone out to a lesser extent at some point for one thing or another. regardless of our volition its somewhat pointless to be overly critical as everyone stands to learn something from another member. in the end its always going to be up to the individual to decide what to believe. its best, for your sanity if nothing else, just to ignore the things that dont have a direct negative effect on you.

If smack talking becomes out of bounds in poker the next thing you know they will be banning hockey fights. I honestly think sometimes you guys are arguing over angels on pinheads, but I havent been offput in the least by the discourse.

From your mouth to some hockey god's ear....but pipe dreams aside - here's the thing: the forum isn't poker. Seems like the whole rest of 2p2 is full of this ad hom stuff - the Stud forum (and you can directly credit Andy, one of the best mods on any forum I have ever seen and that's a lot of forums) operates as a topic forum should: on topic.

Posters are not topics.

LC is meant to be more relaxed - but I can see it going the way of the Dodo if it begins to resemble the rest of 2+2 - You think fights are fun, personal attacks are fun, I get that. It's a guy thing. But....

This Stud forum is as close to actual poker talk - true professional advice, respect for newbies and micros, something can actually get accomplished here. People learn here. That's incredibly rare. This is a gem of an Internet location amid a swamp of poker detritus.

There is a dynamic that always always happens. I may have gone off on JT a bit harshly, (sorry JT ) BTW, but anyway - this easily can devolve into a classic Karpmann's Triangle while people defend one or another, attack me for attacking one or the other, and on and on - and it all spills over.

So I'm all done, to do my part. Andy, feel free to delete any and all posts of mine if you deem it will be any sort of improvement at all. I have to go try and write something useful now.

GL to me!

this. I'm the first to admit I can be a jagoff once in a while, but this stuff is tame compared to the smack talk among my other poker buddies, and I doubt I'm alone there!

Re: **!!**GD S IM NOT F AROUND N E MORE (!) FEB LC OH FISCHUL**!!**

having a very frustrating day, numerous river suck outs and also got cold decked when i hit jacks up on fourth and opponent hit a concealed three of a kind.

then came this monster. after the action on sixth i had a feeling i needed to fill up though.... but seat 7 can't complain too much. what's he doing in the hand with 434 in the first place then calling all those bets and raises with just a pair of 4's....

i think this is the biggest stud hand i've won now. poker tracker stud trial has expired so don't have full access to everything at the moment.
