I know people in their mid 30's who are about as bad, so it isn't like with age comes wisdom and decorum as a default. Some people never 'get it'. Gven the relative isolation from the real world young poker players might experience during such critical formative years in a persons social life, it's probably likely that some degree of self-unawareness and social ******ation will occur.

Hot assistant, tho.
hopefully in five or six years he will have a really nasty coke habit so that he will blow all his money up his nose and we wont have to hear about him anymore.

as douchy as he is, he obviously has outstanding cokehead potential.

i dunno. he is on the right track... he just has to keep it up.

Can you stop defending Robl and please tell us more about what you ate for breakfast, or what a great workout you had?

I thought you were pretty entertaining and witty once...haven't in about 6 months.

stop being a clown. i certainly agree that the condo and some of the furnishing are nice, but those have nothing to do with him as a person.

he is a d-bag. plain and simple.

ask yourself this, what comes across in the video more? how nice the condo is? or how much of a d-bag he is?

why does lizzy practically run out of there at the end of the video?

obviously he knows that all the busto kids are gonna rip on him when they see his interviews or whatever. that's what makes it funny. it's pretty hilarious that these kids don't realize that the whole SIHB thing is more of a giant level than anything else.

the grocery store and dice/craps thingies were hilarious.

I really don't think its 100% jealousy.
50%-60%, yes jealousy, but there is a solid 40% "LOL @ How People Are When They're 21 Years Old" factor going on there. It's hugely magnified when you throw in the insane amounts of disposable income you guys have at that age. You'll 'see it' in another 5 years or so when you look back... and hurry up and buy that ****ing Lange. Speaking only for myself, that would cause a great deal of jealousy

haha, valid point. people seem to ignore the fact that yes, he is doing it to get attention. he doesnt gamble that much, doesnt even drink that much, and is just doing it for show, and guess what? its working! stuff like this self promotion makes it easier to operate in the live poker world, get into good games, get sponsorship deals, etc. even if he comes across like a douchebag, it doesnt matter because thats what people want to see. they dont want to see some boring kid on tv sitting there in a nice comfortable small room with no flashy gear or whatever. andrew is playing up his part very well.

as far as the Lange, i really really want it, but i told myself i had to win a live mtt first, or use some sort of poker bonuses so i didnt feel like i was actually blowing a ridic amount of money. If my ftp deal goes thru soon, i will devote the rakeback and bonuses to getting the Lange, ill make sure to keep you updated since you talked to me for a while about it, thanks

Re: HSL: Andrew Robl

Yeah, pics pics pics when you do get it... So when I'm lying in bed weeping out of jealousy and questioning the trajectory of my entire life, I'll have something to print out and blow my nose with, since that's probably as close as I'll ever get to having a brand new L&S.

whats there to get? you must know g2cu pretty well if you can call him d-bag, chances are you have never met him. you, sir, are an idiot.

So everyone's a busto fish that's posting their opinions? Your logic makes a lot of sense...NOT!

Maybe some of us are judging based on what we saw in the video without knowing a pile about g2cu! Hmmmmmmmmmmm?

I said I thought the place was solid, but the extras and his attitude left much to be desired.

Last time I checked...pros with high rolls didn't use Craigslist to find an assistant, they talk to other pros to find a better way.

2 things I've learned in life...

1. Never assume and an make an a-s out of yourself because of it.

2. You never get a second chance to make a 1st impression. But if you do, don't f--k it up since you never know who's path you'll cross in life and you might need their help!

[x] Raptor and G2CU fail at this moment

PS...for the record Raptor

You make the point about getting sponsorship deals even if he comes across as a douchebag? That's even funnier to me! You think some CEO of a poker-related company is gonna throw 6 figures at G2CU after watching that? That's like saying hookers don't work the Strip in Vegas!

Re: HSL: Andrew Robl

Andrew has already shown that being noticed helps when he got invited on Poker After Dark back in Jan, despite having never (to my knowledge) gotton a big score in some live tourney and he isnt even all that well known online in comparison to people like cts.

Also, whilst it could have been him, he hasnt actually said he put the craigslist ad out for an assistant, people just assumed.

Why wouldnt someone who is a ceo of a poker site give him a deal? What has he really achieved that people can point at and say "yeah, i know of that guy" yet here he is on HSL, he has been invited on PAD, he is shown in chip updates and interviewed at the WSOP - g2cu is exactly the right person you are looking for as he is putting his name out there and getting plenty of free publicity (cardplayer had coverage of the bathroom prop for example). Why the hell wouldnt you attach your site to him?

I'd guess that half the reason he was invited to PAD had to with chatter about his stats and online winnings...the other half, maybe cause someone said he'd be competitive and maybe entertaining. But that's a different realm vs. real life interpretation of his overall image.

The CL thing...could be him, could not be him. However, his so-called defense team hasn't addressed it...so who knows?

Getting interviews online is a far cry from getting a pokersite CEO or related business to 'want" you. Comes down to impressions...

G2CU...brash, young, not a lot of substance to what he says, etc.

Any known pro...experienced, humble, outgoing, and is relatable to most players.

Winner.....older pros who know how to play the $$$ game. Any big biz that invests money on him at this point....is burning their cash. If they are, it's also a dying ship that's thinking he'll turn the tide when he won't

Image is everything when buying, selling, & making money!

Re: HSL: Andrew Robl

Why do you all have such a problem with a 21 year old that keeps a nice supply of liquor and has questionable taste in art/decor? That sounds like....every normal kid I know. Anyway it's kind of funny that a lot of you guys are being so judgemental about his lifestyle, I guess hating on people on the internet is a really cool thing to do and all, but you guys sound like a lot bigger D-bags than he did. (not that he sounded like a D-bag, I mean he made a few jokes with poor delivery but that isn't enough evidence to call someone out like you all have been)
