Nice work.

Anyone have a link to the Aussie Millions marked cards incident or the Aussie Millions streaming incident that Doug mentioned?

Yes on the hole cards being mistakenly shown in real time. The hand involved Scott Seiver and Ole Schemion.

It isnt really strange. (Online)Poker is GG in teh next 5 years. Not too many people know this. But i know it. And Doug knows it as well. So business/variancewise its clever to start "selling out" considering how big his name is. And once you push an education product its obv not v clever to come here and say "guys, party was nice while it lasted" if you are able to make alot of money on your way out.

People know my hate for education stuff but Doug at least was waiting for what i would consider teh point of no return compared to guys like gandalf who started selling out when poker still had chance of decent future.

Kudos and godspeed

Why do you think online poker has such a short half-life?

Pretty decent writing for a guy with a low IQ. I still see a need for a safety helmet, but I think u will be alright.

Re: This Week On 2+2 with Doug Polk

Just watched the episode in the OP

pretty good!

Only negative for me was the globe rotating the whole time. Found that pretty distracting
