Tounament Hotshot Still Pooh Poohs Game Theoretic Champs

I'm not going to divulge his name without permission but you all know him. And I was sitting next to him recently and having a pleasant chat. Part of the discussion was my asking him his opinion of some successfull players.

Three of the names had him shaking his head. "The deck must be hitting them in the face". Those names were Chris Ferguson, Andy Bloch, and David Singer. Three of the most academic minded players. Because I interspersed those names with others, he didn't even realize the obvious bias he was exhibiting. It didn't even occur to him that the three he had the most negative comments about have similar traits and knowledge he doesn't posess.

Sorry I can't tell you who it was. Even so I thought his comments were worth repeating.

What a strange subject line, almost like a tabloid.

But I'll take the bait and actually put a guess in.

Phil Hellmuth?

Re: Tounament Hotshot Still Pooh Poohs Game Theoretic Champs

How common among this unknown person's peers is his opinion? Is he just one lone crackpot, or does he express some kind of prevailing opinion somewhere? And, not that it matters, just curious, but how many bracelets does he have in comparison to the other three?

This is such an inane and pointless post.

"hey live players think math-y players are dumb and run hot!"

Well, that's a ****ing revelation, now isn't it?

Was this during a game by any chance? Or against someone you often play against?
Seems like a transparent attempt to put you on tilt.

Aren't you a game theoretic champ? Why aren't you owning the World Championship Stud 8 event right now? Have you even cashed this year?

Wow, a well known tourney pro thinks math is overrated.

In other breaking news water is wet and the sky is blue.

Just stop please.
