Isn't this the season in which you appeared and had some drama?

All the best to you and all the other St. Louis poker folks I miss.

Re: Best Damn Poker Show - Premieres JAN 12

oh, scottyclark appears in the UB-whatever-show. that explains a lot.

that's why he trolls this forum starting threads about UB / UB-shows / Phil Hellmuth etc every week.

well, i'm not gonna watch this dumb show endorsing collusion and being sponsored by the ****iest site of the industry.
actually no poker player with any respect for the future of the game should support or watch this show.

that's all.

1) this was from a fun-post in bbv.
that you cannot tell that this was a fun-post doesn't speak for you.

2) you once snitched me to a mod because i complained that you advertised for UB in a thread.

3) STOP ADVERTISING FOR UB!!!

4) why don't the mods stop him from advertising for UB???

I don't see how he's advertising for UB. People are going to watch the show for the trainwreck it will be.

Re: Best Damn Poker Show - Premieres JAN 12

A trainwreck it will be. I am curious how they will handle the walk-off. How they cut it together should be interesting!

smallshark, you have suggested that watching the show is tantamount to supporting the irregularities that happend at UB. You must know that is not lucid reasoning. Did you think there was going to be a segment "Why Annie and Phil think collusion is a swell idea!"? If you don't want to watch the show don't watch bub. The integrity of the game isn't going to be modified by this trainwreck one bit. If they show some shocked reaction shots of Scotty walking off it could be priceless. I am not going to miss it for sure. All the best!

PS I don't think it was all that necessary to embarrass the kid though for his poor play in his BBV "fun post" (I don't know how that would be fun exactly though.) because he lacks debate/reasoning skills. Just my .02.

Re: Best Damn Poker Show - Premieres JAN 12

The last season of the show promoted collusion implicitly: There were team playing together and Annie Duke demanded from one player to softplay his team member.
That is collusion. And i don't have reason to believe this season will be different.

And scottyclark is advertising for UB because he is making posts about UB-related topics. and nobody cares. and if i complain about this he is going to a mod saying that he is personally offended.

one occasion: he puts a picture in his blog about him wearing a UB-shirt. i complain about it. he gets a mod to delete my post, calling me a dickhead.

if wearing UB shirts and making a UB-post every weak isn't advertising, then what is it? are you saying that a pro wearing a full tilt patch or pokerstars patch isn't advertising for the site? that doesn't sound smart. scottyclark appears in that show. he is not random guy wearing poker gear. in connection with his appearance in the show his posts and his UB-shirt are clearly advertising for the site.

to understand the fun post you have to read the whole thread that i started: it was "make me rich bbv" were i wanted to get rich with one dollar in my account.

Now i get hounted for every post i make by scottyclark.

Re: Best Damn Poker Show - Premieres JAN 12

It is a show that has teams! It should not be any more shocking that they should act in the best interest of the team than Jeter should be colluding with A-Rod to beat the Red Sox. Usually poker is an individual effort and the line is pretty clear about the difference in the team and individual flavors of poker.
I hope you are not getting as picked on so much as you think, bub. The only think I think you should have your chops busted a bit about is you less than stellar reasoning and spelling! LOL All the best getting rich with bbv's help!

Re: Best Damn Poker Show - Premieres JAN 12

I know that they had teams in the show. And teams imply playing with and not against each other. This is not the point.

The point is: the show should not have been framed this way. Especially: they should not have put same members of a team at the same table. This leads to softplay. The problem now is: novices to the game don't see this differences.

Other shows (like the world cup of poker shows for example) put one team member at a time at the table: they have 6 teams or so and one team member plays against 6 team members of different teams. softplay cannot happen here.

And my spelling is bad because english is not my native language. sorry for not being american.

i havent played UB since the taping of the BDPS - with the exception of 3 weeks in JAN in a staked capacity. i may or may not play UB in the future. i prefer FTP

one occasion: he puts a picture in his blog about him wearing a UB-shirt. i complain about it. he gets a mod to delete my post, calling me a dickhead.

To clarify. I posted a LINK to a pic in the 'I metted Gus Hansen' thread of Gus and I. This was the LINK. You then took the liberty of posting me in UB garb with OTHER PROs from the gallery and spout off as you have here about my PAST relationship with UB.

scottyclark appears in that show. he is not random guy wearing poker gear. in connection with his appearance in the show his posts and his UB-shirt are clearly advertising for the site.

Correction, I am a VERY random guy. AND b/c I see you joined 2+2 in NOV, AND to prove I am NOT the hard hearted bassturd my mother says I am...

Re: Best Damn Poker Show - Premieres JAN 12

Its been 4 months since the taping and I am working off memory. the BDPS Season 2 will be MUCH better than the WPT show and also MUCH better than the first season of the BDPS.

Same production company...better poker.

24 contestants (18 survive round one)
TEAM DRAFT
3 tables of 6 (12 survive round two)
FT - chip counts weighted according to prelims
TEAM vote for FT
FT - 3 Team Hellmuth members VS 3 Team Duke members

THE CAST
IF you click on the THE CAST you get BIOs on every contestant.

The Muths reflection

September BDPS thread was fun

I'll address the collusion issue when it arises it the broadcast.

The premise of the show is that it is Annie Dukes Team versus the other guys team. There is no more teams to be had unless you had an Annie red, white, and blue teams versus the three teams of Phil's. Novice players do not often have a problem mastering the concept that soft-play in cash games is not acceptable. I have seen it a few times and always said that it was not OK when softplay was offered to me and mentioned it when I observed it in others calmly and politely. Six teams makes no sense with the premise of the show sir. Take it easy it isn't shattering the integrity of the game.

Poor spelling, and poor reasoning skills for that matter, are quite commonly displayed by Americans in my experience (as an American myself). I am pretty much a citizen of the world at this point however, and I can't begin to name the number of friends of mine that are native Africans, Asians, Europeans, and Americans from outside the United States and Canada that speak English better than I do! You may notice that you do not have any clue listed as to what country you are from. After your persistence and how extremely fervent you are in your opinion that only officially approved businesses should be able to advertise...I can only assume you are from North Korea. LOL ; )

I agree. Smallshark and his never tiring F UB crusade has gotten this thread off to a horrible start. My hope was that those that watched the show could talk and critique the show here. He's the one out of line as he tries to deny a thread about Televised Poker to exist in this forum. Typical.

I have been test driving with FT and I heard Hellmuth got a pot he didn't deserve. Won a few burgers playing local and live, we might go to Tunica and thats no jive. Often I wonder what could have been and what should be, but not once have I ever regretted the BDPS or marrying my ex-wife.

Tony? You would agree that the taping should provide enough footage to provide some pretty good poker television?

Just looking for a format to beat,

scott

Re: Best Damn Poker Show - Premieres JAN 12

From watching the show so far, it appears they're going to give each table ~30 minutes for round 1, and there hasn't been an Annie/Phil blowup yet. Tonz was at table 1 (and that's the last you see of him this hour), Scotty's on table 2.
