Boring coverage with people taking forever to act. Joe has no personality and all the staring like Timex does what is that about? His general attitude doesn't make me want to watch the final table. I watched for about 30 minutes and got bored.

Neck Beard:

“Derogatory term for slovenly nerdy people who have no sense of hygiene or grooming. Often related to hobbies such as card gaming, video gaming, anime, et. al.”

internet doesn't lie, here's anther definition:

"The neckbeard is a feature of the slovenly obese, that stereotypical virginal denizen of the intarwebs who lives in his parents’ basement at age 25+ and despite his college education and vast computer skills, works a menial, low paying, low stress job, perhaps as night manager of a grocery store or phone tech support.”

But there is hope:

Sad, but true.

Only thing left for him to do is berate the old rich guy by calling him a stupid fish.

Definitely his facial expressions and head movement. He needs to draw as little attention to it as possible.

His refusal to present himself in a professional manner. We get that you're a smarter-than-erryone-in-the-room 20-something who doesn't live by the rules (i.e., showering) that the rest of us poor saps have to suffer through. But there's nothing about you that I envy.

The super-slow mo's of him knocking the table are making fun of him. And we're laughing

Was. We sold company to MGAM/GCA last year for about 12 big blinds. Should have sold 7 years ago for 75big blinds fml

one advantage is I can now post all sorts of gibberish on 2+2 without providing fodder for shareholder law suit.

I'm a little envious of that whole massive-chipleader-with-three-left-in-the-WSOPME thing.

What 2p2 threads are the most irrelevant?
Hey Floosh thanks for asking! I guess I'd say the ones that nitpick a grown mans attire and checking actions.

What about his stare, omg isn't it terrible.
Yes, apparently his stare burned through the souls of a few viewers, and only the Stare-King Timex was able to withstand its deathly powers. It's rumored that all of the Nov. 9'ers were able to withstand his eye-beams with specially crafted contact lenses issued by the WSOP.

Do you think his actions will discourage viewers from watching the finale.
No, but I imagine the new southpark episode will.

I digress.

He acts so angry at the table, beyond the chip slamming there's the scowling, the menacing stares, the arrogance and the after-the-hand inquisition of his fellow players. Has he never heard the expression "Be humble in victory and gracious in defeat.”

re: Which of Joe McKeehens mannerisms annoy you the most?

Don't they have running water in his basement so that he could have been trained to bathe regularly?

Didn't he have enough of his own action to buy some decent clothing and a razor between July and now?

Why does he comb his hair with buttered toast? (kudos to Norman Chad for one of his best quips ever)

Why does he sling chips and cards around as if he were too good for them? It only makes him look completely like a tool.

::sigh:: but for a luckbox 10 on a river, we'd all not know as much about him... and poker would have the chance for a personable, clean, ambassador.
