I think isi deep down feels relived when he loses cause then he can get off the computer and see the sun.

The kid has no balance when he has money, hes online 24/7 always playing.

Does he not like money?

Or was he scared Isildur1 might beat him at higher stakes? Maybe he just wanted to bank the win, even though he knew he was quitting an opponent at exactly the wrong time, and would be letting his rival nosebleed players get the cream.
He had to go somewhere.

Just thought since the hac and di interview there might have been some swapping as the swings with isil are always massive.

Nowhere he could have gone could be more important than playing on for a possible $1.5m against a tilted opponent. Certainly a massage wasn't a good enough reason to quit.

Remember, this was a chance for Durrrr to get even - or some way to even - against his nemesis, the guy who crushed him, the player who destroyed his reputation by taking $5.5m from him.

Why did Durrrr duck the chance of avenging himself, restoring his reputation, defeating his greatest foe?

There's definitely more to it than he "had to" have a massage, FFS!

Dwan told him before the session started that he was only going to be able to play for an hour. He actually played slightly over that. WTF is there to debate?

Dwan is on vacation with his girlfriend, which is why he hasn't been around playing of late. He likely had an appointment for a couples massage, and yeah, sometimes this type of obligation overrides gamboooooool.

That self control and ability to prioritise real life is one of the reasons why he is atop the poker ladder.

That ability to romanticize every action, and try to come up with a heroic story for the ages, no matter the event, is why you break into peoples houses and live there instead of earning your own money and paying your own rent.

Maybe Isildur should've gone for a massage when he was up $600k. Durrrr is a smart dude.

Re: **** March High Stakes Thread ****

if my memory is right, durrrr was up pretty significant in their earlier battles only to lose it all back in the next hours. it´s a bit weird that he quits to go to a massage but I am sure he wanted to book a win for once against the man who took a few millions off him

Re: **** March High Stakes Thread ****

I have figured it out!!!!

Martonas is staking Isi. Deposits 100k or so on FTP. Isi crushes and makes some 1.5M in 10hours or so. Martonas says: "ok kid, time for you to get some sleep, I will play for a bit". Goes on to lose 2M. Rinse repeat next day.

Ez.

The point is, does he take any lessons from these sessions/swings at all.

I think it's more likely that the Martonas account was the one that Durrrr and others have hinted at, in terms of an account that Dr. Pill and Isildur1 shared in the past.

Isildur1 plays a high variance style of poker. That means he'll have epic run-ups that the railbirds love to see, and that also means he'll have devastating crashes.

It's really that simple, IMHO.

Haaaaaaahaaaaahhaaaaa. I mean, I've read LuckyJimm's blog and don't have a problem with anything he does. But still, that is one of the funniest things I've read on 2+2.
