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

It's pretty funny watching these guys chase Gus around the tables and he's pretty much crushing it this year unlike other players who are doing much worse. Must be a great image to have...

I've always heard that Gus is a huge degen, and the short time I've been following the nosebleeds has confirmed that. But he's been doing a sick job grinding the CAP PLO. Could be a good year for him, although I hear he started 2009 up too...

I think it's different this time round. He's being smarter about the games he plays and just seems pretty focused, but anything can happen it is Gus after all.

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

Despite his massive losses yesterday, Isildur is up 3.2M year-to-date?

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

Nah Odonkor1 is a high stakes player for years on euro sites. His name is Joel Nordkvist (not sure if spelling is correct) and plays as Joeel on Betfair and Odonkoooor1 on Ipoker. He uses the same name on Prima although he plays there rarely.

Just found he was nominated for Scandi Online player of the year in 2008.

As it turns out, Galfond ran under all in EV for the session with Isildur1.

He had to run above EV some day, just to bad it was this battle, as it really didnt matter. galfond was gonna take all the money in his account anyway.

Also, in general those EV-graphs can never be accurate as we cant see mucked hands.

In addition to "that's not how it works" as Masq stated, this graph is from Galfond, who most definitely does see at least his own mucked hands.

I will click the link next time, this one is def accurate

I must be very tired today, off course mucked cards dont have anything to do with the EV graph as it only tracks how you run when all-in before the river, and both cards a visible to everyone

Let's just agree that our lives are better when isildur is broke.

We can put in hands, work out, sleep and eat.

I dunno, I like watching the action.

It's interesting that he started to play yesterday, but abruptly stopped the session and said "something came up"

I wonder if that something was his rumored backer requesting he take some time off.
