KRANTZ: Drug addict?

In his blog post today, he explains why he's been playing stakes as low as 5/10 NLHE online...reason #4...

4- I’m addicted to really expensive designer drugs. They cost a ton of money. If I put that money online, I’m ****ed.

Thoughts?

And all along I thought it was his love of high-end sneakers + hatred of dirty things (resulting in large purchases of 45+ pairs of the same shoes)

Re: KRANTZ: Drug addict?

Don't know who Krantz is really. But anyway who cares, drug addict? Pffffffft. Please. Bit of a stretch to draw that conclusion from that one sentence don't you think, OP?

Also "drug addict" is such a loose and unhelpful term. Please be more specific.

He does say he will surely play nosebleeds this summer though. And he's not an effing bum hunter.

What he means is he can't afford to finance the 500/1000 games anymore.

Why would he put such a detail in his blog? Is it cool to be addicted to drugs now?

Don't worry it wil get taken down in about a day and then the thread purged by request. Just like the ToS incident, just like the gun thread from who I can't remember, and just like Ariel blogging about how soft some home game was until he realised it probably wasn't a good idea to insult his hosts, just like the Eskobarrr informing Mr B 2 U Son being offered to cheat against him thread...

WTF 2k worth of weed ~ £1300 = about a pound of weed if bought wholesale. pretty sure snoop dogg in his prime would struggle with that.

Re: KRANTZ: Drug addict?

E is neither expensive nor a designer drug. At least not anymore.

Also if he was "addicted" to MDMA you can bet he wouldn't be good at poker for much longer.


Also no, cocaine and opiates don't count as designer drugs either. Neither does weed. Just to resolve the confusion in this thread...


IIRC the majority of designer drugs on the market at the moment are of the psychedelic variety, so therefore (probably) have relatively benign physical and psychological side effects, so noone need panic about Krantz being a secret crackhead.

Re: KRANTZ: Drug addict?

...Designer drug is a term used to describe psychoactive drugs which are created (or marketed, if they had already existed) to get around existing drug laws, usually by modifying the molecular structures of existing drugs to varying degrees,[1] or less commonly by finding drugs with entirely different chemical structures that produce similar subjective effects to illegal recreational drugs.
