Re: "9 high like a boss"

FWIW Jack told Will be was going to get another penalty for talking to I think Jason Les during a hand after what seems to be about 30 seconds. So let's calm down with the "cuz she's a whoa man" talk

Re: "9 high like a boss"

watching episode 1 now and first impression: Shaun Deeb such ass wipe, i get that he is trying to be funny but his humor sucks and is quite rude, berating GR and calling random people fish , he is a great player no doubt but so annoying , someobody should slap that fat boy so he shuts his fat lip and stops calling everyone fish, reminds me of that episode with Mike same style same act no change.

Pretty sure that wasn't Jack Effel fwiw and also that was complete bull**** from whatever TD it was just making up rules on the spot.

Re: "9 high like a boss"

I personally like how Jack Effel handled it.

I feel like he trusted his intuition and made a strong stance

Oh I assumed it was. The first penalty is whatever but what he did with Jason Les was like nothing and whoever threatened the penalty was pretty out of line

Re: "9 high like a boss"

Seemed perfectly reasonable to me. Not like it was a discussion he was just giving him a barrage of bull**** chat when he was facing a bet. Let the man have a moment of quiet to make a decision.

Re: "9 high like a boss"

I can't believe how horrendous this was, worst theme music ever.

Also like how ESPN features a hand that illustrates how awful the WSOP can be. Tedious, slow NL hands where two players fish for tells and argue while the rest of the table just wants to gouge their eyes out. That should really help next years attendance.

Re: "9 high like a boss"

How is a fish like Jamie Gold ever supposed to ship the main again with the floor being run by SJWs?

Or Jerry Yang. (FWIW - 5x raise pre-flop is huge +ev )

PS - Ask Shawn Sheikhan about Jack Effel's temper, or better yet, check out his altercation with Mike Matusow in the 2005 Main Event.

Deeb was tremendously more out of line than Will. He guilt tripped someone for believing in god.

Re: "9 high like a boss"

Was Will out of line?I think Jack was more out of line not even aware from the situation he ruled like a dictator...threathens to give another round iff Kassouf talks another word(to Jack away from the table.)

When i first read about this incident i was 100% against Kassouf but after the footage i don't see anything that even slightly justify a penalty....Is Kassouf annoying for others?Hell yes he is.Was he out of line?In no way.

Kassouf fan. He's great. If you don't like him I probably don't like you.

Re: "9 high like a boss"

Talking to your opponent while action is on you is fine; talking to an opponent while action is on them may not be -- depending on context.

And, yeah, Deeb is grumpy at the table.

This is just my opinion, but I think the whole "good for poker" thing is blown way out of proportion. I mean if you like poker, and you plan on making a trip to the WSOP, some clown (albeit a very funny one) on an ESPN episode of the ME isn't gonna make you change your mind.

I loved the Raymer "take it outside" comment to Deeb.
I'd ask the dealer to do a truffle shuffle when the button was on deeb.

Re: "9 high like a boss"

Finally on the Day 5 coverage we see a TD do his bloody job. When the action is on you, an opponent cannot ****ing taunt and berate you endlessly. THAT is where Kassouf is out of line. Anyone who disagrees with that, I'd like to see you playing for 10MM and have someone never giving you 5 seconds of silence to consider a decision.

Should be warned and penalized every time he does it.

Re: "9 high like a boss"

When he's not out of line, I got no problem with him.

Two hands now where he raises, gets shipped on, other players still to act, and he's behaving like the decision is on him. THERE ARE OTHERS PLAYERS STILL TO ACT. STFU.

TDs are not doing their job. Not surprising, Effel has been awful for a long time.

I'd welcome the challenge - but not all players have the mindset of a professional, and that should be respected.

Missed the comment he made about Norman Chad not having any money so they never go after him. What a lowlife , talking like that about the great Norman Chad. We get it fat boy, you have the money but you are ugly af and a terrible human. OTOH he is likely just extremely insecure and unhappy and probably not a such a bad person, who knows.
