Are you leveling me? if youre not you sound pretty bad at the game.

Re: HSL: Andrew Robl

I am new to the game but unless I'm incorrect last I checked a pocket pair (JJ) vs. one overcard (A9) is 69%. I was referring to only that particular hand. No I wasn't leveling you by the way. Also I do think I'm probably pretty bad at the game, then again only been playing 5 months.
So any details on the Robl fight?

just a tip, youre result oriented too. Which is incredibly bad and is the root of most leaks.

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.
Raptor has paid his dues so he gets as much lenience as he wants.

Actually, we defend them because we know them and like them. They are good guys. Being good at poker is hardly a reason worth defending someone.

i mean, i guess right now im sort of adding fuel to the fire, which is fine i suppose, generally i try to avoid it.. buuuuuut.. if you take a step back for half a second and read this thread, you might have a different perspective on who is doing the 'crying'. now, would you think it is the person saying 'andrew is a great guy, nice place!' or... the people going 'what a farking douchebag he has no taste he sucks at life if i had that much money id be better whaahh whaaaahhh this guys blog sucks whaaahhh'. i know which gets my vote! zing!

Re: HSL: Andrew Robl

yeah some of guys are very out of line. Its one thing to hate a guy, to rip him apart in threads and bash him when you don't know him is pretty bad. I'm gunna go ahead and agree with david here, he was just defending good2cu and not saying anything mean, just trying to let everyone know that he is not as much of a tool as he may come off as in threads or videos.

modest is about the last word i would think of to describe the way good2cu comes off on this forum and in the videos. i think that coupled with he always seems a little awkward/needing approval bring a lot of hate on him.

hope he's aware of how dangerous drinking, partying, late hours are to a poker career.

i'm guessing the place cost about $600,000.

you can see the circus circus in the background. i'm guessing he's somewhere between the 8th and 12th floor.

dude should have seriously hired an interior designer. young men can't decorate worth a damn. bare white walls look nasty.

i'm guessing that he has no balcony otherwise they would have walked outside. that's gotta suck being trapped inside. i had a similar situation in an apartment complex and had to move to a different unit with balcony as soon as the lease was up.

would have been nice if he had a balcony cause we could have got a pool shot right below.

edit: i looked again and it does have a balcony, shame they don't show it. how can cardplayer not walk out on the balcony to give us a pool and strip shot -- unforgivable!

I find the nut huggers who've never met you guys but still juggle your balls in their mouths way more pathetic and annoying than the haters.

I will never understand it.

You and Durrr could be operating a top-secret ******ed prostitution ring and a dog-fighting business, and a lot of the people on here would be saying it's "standard"

I also don't know if your blog sucks or not, i don't read it.

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

I'm a crappy poster in your eyes...why? You didn't give any reasoning, but I'm sure it's probably got do with having a differing opinion with raptor or g2cu because they've been here since 2004 and I've only been here since 2008 and what they say is gospel...blah blah blah.

It's absolutely possible that after meeting g2cu...one could feel differently and think he's an OK dude, I can admit that. But all I said from beginning was...it gave off an uncool vibe to me about his personality, etc. and I didn't think it helped the image he's trying to portray. This forum would be boring if we didn't disagree.

Instead some of you think 2p2 is like a controlling foreign govt. view on life...we say so and don't disagree or else. It's the only fitting alliteration I could think of.

Re: HSL: Andrew Robl

nice place, especially for a 21 year old. liked the blackjack and coke painting. only thing i didn't like is how he kept saying how stuff was "high end" or whatever. most people assume the stuff you buy is not cheap, you don't have to tell us every single thing is high end. especially "dolce" shirts. you could just say you bought some nice shirts so you didn't look out of place in the bellagio. other than that, sweet place

oh, and you can't even really see a close up of the asst so for those of you saying the asst is so hot are clearly mistaken and just see the blonde hair and think "OMG SHE'S SO HOT" i'm sure she's not busted but even from the distance i didn't think she was amazing by any means.
