Confirmed busto? Can't imagine that job pays any more than $10 an hour.

Fun fact: Guerneville is a gay enclave. It's basically The Castro but in the redwoods.

Re: Joe Sebok now Crushing. Grapes.

#1- u cant be a "former poker pro , amatuer , noob" etc.

its a card game, cant retire form a game, u just stop playing. this isnt a sport lol

#2- i love when the filthy rich do odd jobs just to feel connected to the world then proceed to go back home and "count money"



Joe should give all his UB money back to the players. That would be more news worthy than this dude busting balls, i mean grapes.

End rant

Stopped reading right there.

EDIT: OK, guess I didnīt lol. Nothingīs changed for Mr. Superstar:

Quote:
"Basically, I came up here and got my ass kicked."

Love, love, love the rest of the introduction.

"He has competed in dozens of tournaments over the years."

Read: He put up some of his fatherīs money and got his ass kicked.

His stepfather, Barry Greenstein, is one of the most famous names in the sport.

and he hasnīt won **** in like 5 years.

And together, Sebok and Greenstein founded PokerRoad.com, a multimedia outlet for all things poker.

... which achieved nothing and cost both of them easily 7 figures.

What a delusional tool. Of course the reason he quit poker is because he got tired of "counting money."

Think you vastly overestimate his bankroll. His dad just got his house foreclosed on. They are obviously busto. He took this job for the money and experience. And now he's trying to parlay it into a $30k a year job managing the Twitter and Facebook profiles for some winery. Sick life.

Would you have preferred he said "Poker is great when you are winning but unfortunately I did not really do much of that and was mostly miserable and delusional" or something even worse that makes the game look bad?

Obviously he's going to answer how he did, he was always good at talking and that's all he is doing here. It's easy to wind up in articles like this when you achieved some fame in another area. Papers need filler articles. He's an easy target / candidate imo.

Not even hating fwiw it's just...I mean it's Joe Sebock ffs who cares lol.
