I guess since there is no rule at the casino, then Alec didn't do anything wrong, right guys?

That was quoted from the Wikipedia article? If so, then someone has removed it since the version I'm looking at right now. Whoever wrote that probably didn't source it correctly.

Edit: also, I enjoy that an article referencing SuperSoak's video is now part of the Wikipedia annotations.

I agree Torelli is a douche but don't see it in this video.

Re: Alec Torelli Caught Angleshooting

you can defend the big chips being in the wrong place, but not how they got there.

Obviously an angle. Chips were clearly hidden. Then he lied & tried to act like they were out front the whole time. Plus if you watch that complete episode of PNIA you'd see that he waited until almost no one was at the table to pull those chips out & put them on the table. Absolute scum.

It's not about being tough or anything, it's about keeping dickheads away from you as a lifestyle.
Yet you post with regularity in NVG.

Don't draw attention to yourself. Players might start watching you more closely, which means getting better reads on your play. Or villain might talk to you nonstop when you're in a hand, just to get even.

If your name is Phil Hellmuth you might get away with a lot. If your name is Joe Smith, probably not.
Very good advice on both counts: (1) I need to keep a lower profile. (2) A wise ass at the table made some unwelcome comments so I berated him constantly any time he was in a hand. I need to avoid both situations as being -EV.

Yeah someone corrected it. Alec likes to change his wikipedia every couple of months to some new lie or spin on his cheating controversy. Breaking the rules to gain an advantage is cheating. I'll keep checking his wiki every couple months to report the lies and bump this thread.

Re: Alec Torelli Caught Angleshooting

Crazy story. I was looking for my kid who got lost at the casino yesterday. Spent hours searching. Finally found her on a poker table behind a stack of chips. "I swear, I didn't even see her there" said sleezy italian dude. He then goes all in and pushes my kid into the middle of the table. Wtf???

I feel like this should be noted as an interesting hobby or something on his wiki.

Re: Alec Torelli Caught Angleshooting

Torelli is scum right down to his core. The fact he was on the ethics committee of anything is laughable. Negreanu is petty and childish. Cant stand the both of them to be honest but still would prefer Alec at my table. Daniel is just so cringey.
