In every thread i read, you are always whining about something. I read your posts and picture the 5 year old kid in the store, throwing temper tantrums about his GI Joes.

before you say "i'm your huckleberry" or throw out any other Tombstone lines, I know you are a successful player and i don't give a damn. These other guys may hug your nuts like there's no tomorrow, but i just don't care if you are good or not.
c'mon its pretty clear you have a creepy obsession with him, nice try playing it cool by calling him "the raptor guy" like you don't refresh his blog every 10 minutes

also i'd way rather be the person described in panchostern's post than panchostern, wtf man lighten up. i find it hard to believe that you're not a huge antisocial loser (who is probably unsuccessful at tying his shoes) given the way you treat people.

They are really quite lucky to have found poker because they'd probably be quite unsuccesssful at anything else.
LOL you epically fail at life.
and um you should try watching tombstone again?

Andrew comes off surprisingly well in this video, I thought. My expectations were pretty low though, given his past posts and the whole SIHB thing.

Re: HSL: Andrew Robl

I think that overall this media exposure Robl is getting is very smart on his part. However, the fact that he feels the need to project this kind of persona as opposed to something else leads me to think that he can be an intelligent and analytical individual who has not had the benefits of growing around a solid moral foundation.

On to the video now... A stripper pole and random booze bottles you don't even know about? Please... If you're smart enough to get to where you are now, is it that difficult to educate yourself a LITTLE bit more?

Re: HSL: Andrew Robl

I have to admit I thought he would be a huge duesh… I was pleasantly surprised when I found out he wasn’t as bad as thought. Sure, he thought having the most expensive bottle of wine was the only thing that mattered in life but what do you expect from a successful young kid. His attention to ufc over boxing rather than promoting the sport of mma was pretty weak, but I guess I can’t expect much more. From the looks he is a decent guy, he just needs to realize that there is more value (EV dude) in being yourself then trying to be someone you are not.

Re: HSL: Andrew Robl

it's always been pretty obvious that most 2p2ers were jealous broke railtard losers, but the fact that this thread has almost 300 posts debating whether some kid with a nicer place than most will ever live in (nor have they ever met) is a douche is lol.

JBS I hardly ever post here but i feel you need to be called out again on your general ignorance and overall douchebaggery. Kill yourself and/or stop posting. Sick place g2cu, we played a little cash last time the WPT was at Borgata...you're a good dude, congrats.

-Don't think he remembers you from Borgata

-Aren't you the guy that came on 2p2 last year while leading the FT 750K and promised railbirds 1K apiece if you won, and then came in 2nd?

https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/29/news-views-gossip/2p2er-offers-1k-each-his-railbird-fans-4431/

-3 cashes in last 75 tourneys on PS over last 60 days...def. in the red there.

-Your last 2 posts involve the phrase "Kill yourself"

And I'm a DB?

Sorry...don't think g2cu will let you crash on his couch or date his asst.!

Re: HSL: Andrew Robl

its high stakes living he's SUPPOSED to brag about how he's living and the stuff he has, for god's sake! do you guys think every athlete or musician on cribs is a d bag? because they brag about their stuff a lot more than andrew did. he comes off pretty decently imo, esp in regards to buying an inexpensive piece of artwork and just saying, hey i like this, so i'm going to hang it on my wall. i have some rich friends/acquaintances who would never do something like that. we all have our faults, he seems like a pretty smart kid who will someday be as good at life as he is at poker(hell maybe he is now, we really don't KNOW him), which i don't think is true of everyone who comes into that kind of money at that age.

Re: HSL: Andrew Robl

Nice thread. Cliffnotes:

- Everyone mostly agrees that it is a pretty nice condo.
- Opinions are divided as to whether G2CU is a nice guy or the biggest douchebag in the world. The latter group skews heavily towards 2008 registrations.
- Half-hearted and non-specific HU challenges are issued but quickly forgotten.
- Awesome hijack about German watches/pet grooming products.
- One dude apparently harbors a deep resentment against people from Kansas. His exact reasons are unclear, as are his reasons for raising the issue in this thread.

Just to clarify...just because some people didn't register here before 2008 means were supposed to believe everything (without question) what someone says who's been posting here for 2-4 years about:

-All aspects of poker

-That so and so is a great guy and anyone who thinks otherwise is a douche

-They know everything about houses, MMA, alcohol, life, etc.

-And a thousand other things

Not saying there's not some good points from said vets...but if the theory is believe everything from said pre-2008 posters...what would now be the purpose of 2p2, to recite the beliefs over and over?

Just trying to understand your point...

Re: HSL: Andrew Robl

hi raptor,

i passed an auntie anne's pretzel shop and remembered you mentioned that you love their pretzel dogs so i bought one, i asked them salt it which they did without conflict, however i did not enjoy it because it did not blend well. i guess i will stick with my standard order of almond pretzel + lemonaide.

Re: HSL: Andrew Robl

when a person is modest, which he was, i don't see how you can realistically label him a douchebag. if you think its tacky/silly to have gambling paintings than thats OK, but why would you call someone a douche bag for having what you feel is bad taste? If he was cocky and arrogant then maybe you have an argument, but he wasn't at all.

he mentioned not dressing as nice as everyone else when he first got to vegas.

he mentioned having to study books to get good at poker.

he mentioned sitting on his ass.

he mentioned being a fish in regards to strippers

-- can you please explain how his tour and his 'bragging' was different from everyone else who has done this show? i am guessing most of you criticizing actually loved the artwork, etc and are insanely jealous.

Just trying to understand your point...

I just made an observation, you inferred all the above yourself. If I was to expand, however, I would expect that people who...

- Have read and responded to G2CU's posts here for years.
- Have played the same stakes and games as G2CU.
- Have interacted with G2CU in real life.

... would be better placed to make a character judgment than people who haven't. You, for example. I'm not saying that your join date or post count or bankroll makes you more or less "worthy" than anybody else.

That said, you manage stand out as a particularly ****ty poster even by NVG standards, so congratulations for that, I guess.

Actually i've never read "Raptors" blog and i have no idea where to find it. But i'm going to keep it that way. I heard he's always talking about how much Mac n' cheese had had for lunch, how fantastic his yoga workout was, and how many vitamins he takes.

I've just noticed that he's always crying in many threads on here.

I'm not sure i understand it since he's obviously successful and makes a lot of money playing cards.

It's funny how you random nut-huggers defend these guys just b/c they are very successful players. If it was some random schmuck crying in every thread, you would be ripping him apart.

Very true. I think the funniest thing was when he wished he'd get PA in the 1st round of the Full TILT HU championship & DID. THen PA raped him.

Re: HSL: Andrew Robl

By the way on a slightly different note when is his MMA match? Who is he supposed to fight? I'm a huge MMA fan & former promoter so that caught my attention. He does look fit but not sure if he has any skill or cardio to go along with it. I'd be curious to see how he does. The only thing I found weird was he said he had like 20 lbs on the guy. Not sure how any show would sanction that due to that immense weight differential. Unless he plans on cutting weight then gaining it back overnight like most pro's.

false, he was doing fine and lost JJ all in preflop vs a bad shove of A9o by Patrik that would have given him a minimum (imo) of 80-90% to win.

Re: HSL: Andrew Robl

Last I checked bottom line he was out REGARDLESS of your 80-90% & PA moved on. Also I think it would be more like 69% wouldn't it?

I don't understand why people care so much. He seems to be a good guy and the place is nice. Stop the hating, wth. It's not like he's one of those 28 yo with tribal tattoos, geez.

Hate: Also, panchostern, you don't seem to be very smart, regarding your last post. :-)
