you think mement_mori doesn't work hard.

those who succeed in poker, really succeed not us half assed 1/2, 2/4 grinders who call ourselves poker players, they really work hard esp relative to the corporate world

Re: Joe Sebok now Crushing. Grapes.

he's just a guy whose dad was a real pro. saw the potential money in poker and just started having his dad buying him into every 10k event and called himself a pro. he never had his own his own big enough bankroll to play.

Good luck with your ****ing grapes Joe!
The whole "Sebok in poker" debacle couldnt be summed up any better than this

Guerneville?
interesting locale for Joe to live.
He is about 40 minutes from the 101 Casino. Be interesting to see if he

Exactly, the top whatever % do (and no denying people who make SNE or just grind 250k hands/mo are working their asses off), just the majority on average are lazier imo.

Re: Joe Sebok now Crushing. Grapes.

Great article, very newsworthy and def a stand up guy. Obv his investigation of UB has led him to this place, perhaps some of the key players in the super user scandal own this operation and he is going deep, undercover.
