Yes he's mixed race. He's half clown / half douchebag.

Re: "9 high like a boss" aka "Check your privilege"

Pretty confused how anyone who has played live poker can defend Kassouf. Players who take 2 minutes every hand, for no reason, are the absolute worst. I couldn't care less about the babble he spews, but the time wasting is unacceptable and the TD needs to nix it. If everyone did that, you'd play one hand an hour. There's a reason no one at the table could stand him.

Re: "9 high like a boss" aka "Check your privilege"

I'm American. Decently informed. Mostly anti-SJW, but obviously some of their points have merit.

Benger's outburst just absurdly cringeworthy. Don't think that's even debatable. And Kassouf tanking was way over the line and disrespectful to the other players. But L-O-L that he was verbally abusing Benger.

Anyway, on to my question. And I'm dead serious. What on Gods Green Earth does check your privilege mean there? If someone can give me a sincere answer it'd be really appreciated.

Thanks.

Re: "9 high like a boss" aka "Check your privilege"

Also would add that it is beyond pathetic for Kassouf to beg the TD to give Benger a penalty. I mean, Kassouf can babble nonsense for days and then can't even handle someone spouting off back to him? Sad, really.

He is a galactic scumbag. Not surprising at all.

It's was the prefect phrase no matter what all the lol lunatic alt-righter itt say.

His point was that kassoff is a pure narcissist. He thinks he is allowed to do anything, no matter how miserable he makes those around him as long as he can hide behind "im not breaking the rules". He thinks the only thing that matters is his perceived EV no matter how much it affects those around him. He wouldn't care if his antics ruined the tournament for 6000 other players because all that matters is his EV and enjoyment. It's also clear he enjoyed making everyone else miserable and wore it as a badge of honour.

Nobody in the history of poker has needs to check their privilege more.

Re: "9 high like a boss" aka "Check your privilege"

Just got around to watching the youtube clips of Kallouf.
How does anyone have an issue with him? The only issue I see is him using rules to his advantage where maybe they should have clearer rules. But other players can call clock on him every time it's his turn and they choose not to...

Re: "9 high like a boss" aka "Check your privilege"

It sounds like it's the preflop tanking on routine decisions such as folding trash in bad position.

Re: "9 high like a boss" aka "Check your privilege"

Phoenix: there's a certain amount of time before you can call a clock, and even then he gets sixty more seconds. Think about that. He'd have like three minutes per action per hand even if they called the clock every time. If he played it to the river, that's at least twelve minutes. And, they said he'd delay before even looking at his cards. It's unnecessary and to the detriment of everyone.

Re: "9 high like a boss" aka "Check your privilege"

What was it Benger was yelling after Kassouf called?

"It doesn't matter what happens, he's cooler. He's cooler than me." or something. Or was it: "He's coolered." It was weird.

"I seek for information"
" That's the part of the game"
It for sure has nothing to do with live poker*.
Kassouff failed because 8 boring crying robots shut him down. He was silent in episodes 13 and 14.
* I watched EPT 13 malta two days ago and lots of them took the same amount of time in the middle of tournament. In deep dead silence.

It was "he's coolered." Basically letting everyone know in advance that if he loses it's not because he got outplayed. He seemed very underconfident about his AA.

Re: "9 high like a boss" aka "Check your privilege"

I'm glad at least some people are taking Kassouf's side in all this. The only issue I have with him is the time issue with his hands if they really were only getting 2/3 the hands other tables were getting due to him.

The others at the table seems like such bitches - esp Vayo and Benger. Vayo just couldn't couldn't stop gossipping about every damn thing and Benger was just a dbag with his whole "check your privilege" crap.

Re Mateson (the whiny woman) - she said after she was 80-90% calling with QQ there - so how did a time constraint move her to folding??

I thought that but ended watching the whole thing. It's very good.

He basically confirms everything that I thought in that lengthy post a few pages back and made me remember how utterly appalling Jack Effel was.

It sounds like Jack was going through some kind of breakdown over Will. Pretty impressive to put a tournament director on monkey tilt.

Say what you like about Kassouf but he makes great point after great point here and everyone posting itt should probably give it a go.
