Yet, when the opportunity arises that would allow you to play such a player for a substantial amount, you drag your feet as much as possible to prevent it from happening.

You either hate money or are full of ****. Which is it?

The problem with making statements like this is that it's easy to say if you know you don't have to back it up.

Craig, I've already said that I'd play any player that has spent 80% of their poker time on the computer. Id play them tonight if they showed up with money.

Yea. But you know that nobody will show up where you live before you escrow and you won't escrow so ......

Gabe's arguments over the past 30 pages:

"you guys are a mob that just gangs up on me! You're stupid and pathetic and antisocial. Don't you have anything better to do than gang up on me"

Great argument Gabe....a lot of substance there. you schooled us for sure

I tell you what, If someone shows up here, not wearing hoodie, suglasses etc. & I don't play them. I will personally start a new thread saying, Hey I'm Gabe(ALL TALK) Costner. I was wrong about these new school internet kids. There really good & I just well, have been running my mouth, I didn't mean any of it, & well I just want to run into the corner & cry.

Now take your mouse out of your hands, Balls out of your panties & come bring you money if you think you have an edge. Its that simple

That's what I originally thought....in my prior posts I said Mississippi but then Samo was saying Missouri in his posts so I assumed he was right.

w/e. My mistake does not compare to the drivel you've spewed this thread

Also I love how you're willing to respond to something like that where I get your location wrong, but nottttt respond to my flawless argument that owns your soul. It's obvious why you can't respond with something that makes sense. you know this. I know this.

If you do respond, I am positive it will have nothing to do with the actual argument at hand

I will throw $100 into the pool to whoever does the bolded. Serious post. I know it's nothing, but if enough people did it it would cover travel expenses.

and yes, Gabe could you specify how much you'd be willing to play for if someone came to play you without an escrow? is 40k the max?

And I'm fairly certain the reason why he and others are suggesting you are delusional has nothing to do with STARTING this thread.

But, I'll ask my two questions again:

1) Why, if you have such a huge edge on Samo, won't you do what every other professional poker player would do and shrug off an extremely mild incident where you felt insulted in order to take his money? Samo has been, with only one exception, the politest person in this thread, and is willing to bend over backwards to give you a match where you are an 80% favorite (in your estimation). Backing out makes zero sense unless you don't believe you are a favorite, which would call everything else in this thread into question.

So why are you, as a professional, who has undoubtably heard worse things at the table, not willing to take such a huge +EV opportunity?

2) Why, if you dislike arguing with "punk kids", do you have a history of repeatedly returning to multiple poker forums from which you have registered, posted, received similar treatment, and then been banned?

And FWIW, I'm almost certainly around the same age as you, and I'm not the only one in this thread in that age category, so once again you insist on painting everyone with the same brush.
Still waiting on responses to these questions, BTW.

^^^ seriously Gabe, reading through the last few pages you have avoided any substantive questions regarding your claims and instead spewed more nonsense consistent with your 'I have an 80% edge but won't escrow even with my friend, and 2p2 is an illogical group of mean idiots that is ganging up on me' mentality.

just respond to SGT RJ's questions. they are reasonable.

Ok enough with these personal attacks and what not. Analyzing this thread from an objective point of view, it is obvious that neither side is coming through or leading anywhere with their points/arguments.

I would suggest NVGers rather accept EDDtown for who he is. The two parts simply don't understand each other on the most fundamental level. Think of him as one of the downs syndrome kids you had in class in elementary school (coincidentally someone is talking about schooling) since it is hard to find a common ground. They might not have been good at adding and subtracting numbers, but they were really good at drooling and having a big tongue, and are certainly charming in their own way*.

This reads like either a threat or a brag, i.e; "If you think you're so tough, come on over and see who you're really dealing with". Obviously you had no intention of actually fighting the man but didn't want to look like a puss in public. That's totally fair. But that's also exactly what Gabe did. He made a threat/brag and when called out on it backed out. Both of these things are just dick measuring contests, which is half of what poker (and especially the talk on these forums) is, anyway.

As far as Gabe goes, I think he got himself into a sticky situation and didn't really want to play anyone for stakes that high (and 40K is a lot to most people) even if he felt he had an edge. That is totally understandable, because deep down everyone knows that no one really has a huge edge in such a short match (no matter how much you two want to wave your dicks around). His mistake was getting into the convo too deep so as to not look like a puss. His latest thing on not willing to escrow is just absurd, since he mentioned they could use Dolan just a few days ago.

Thread is derailing into nothing but people calling each other idiots in the meanest way possible (I'm citing the above as an example).

By all means continue to debate, but if your post is nothing but an attack with no other substance I'm going to start deleting them before this magnificent comedy show gets derailed completely.

It's the most ludicrous form hipocracy.

And just LOL to Samo thinking I'm easy money. Hell Claudia won $9100 in a 25NL game with 5 or 6 players straddling for 10 last night. When is the last time any of you won over 9 grand in a 25 game or finished top 100 in a main event. Shes been playing half the time I have & I taught her everthing she knows. Shes also won something like 12 out 14 sessions since we got back from vegas, Ive lost once since we got back & twice if you count a 45min session I played.
ive won the monthly and weekly tlb on pokerstars before, am i one of the best internet players in history?
