Oh I know. He's doing what Durrrr was doing. Paying for the cost of learning PLO by crushing NL. It's smart since that's where the games are heading in the nosebleeds but it's rough to watch.

Edit: JohnnyBax is playing 50/100 cap PLO with a 18k stack. That's not dabbling.
It's pretty silly to call it a blood bath when he's up over $1m against Cole overall. It was 6 buyins, which is nothing at all in HU PLO.

Cole was up way more than 30k. when I went to bed. I wasn't railing all the tables but the games I did see had Isil having to bounce his roll around cause he was so short so I assume either I missed a ton of action or he won some back?

Edit: It wasn't a matter of opponent. I thought NL was his better of the two games? I think he's down overall in PLO over a fairly decent sample if you combine all the hands. I just don't think his edge is there at that game yet.

You mean, why we in Europe expects everyone to look like an underwear model? Because most of us do, it's just ameritards that actually order supersize at mcd.

And no, he aint normal by our standards, he would be at the chubbier side in a univ area around here.
edit; as said before.. The tan and the lightning/dark background is a lifesaver.

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

Hopefully when Hastings is cruising this thread or even South can answer a few questions. Hastings may or may not be overweight but where the hell did he get his killer tan? Im suspecting it didnt come from constantly being in the water and surfing, hes obviously doesnt do alot of work outside. Fabutan monthly package is my guess. Other question is why does Townsend go for that eternal senior year high school look? Could defo picture Townsend starting rando conversations with high school girls or even pratrolling the grounds.

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

ADULT OBESE POPULATION
Nauru 78.5%
Tonga 56.0%
Saudi Arabia 35.6%
United Arab Emirates 33.7%
United States 32.2%
Bahrain 28.9%
Kuwait 28.8%
Seychelles 25.1%
Seychelles 25.1%
United Kingdom 24.2%

A number of European countries (members of the EU) such as Greece, Slovakia, and Hungary are not far off the USA's obesity rate. So let's not make silly generalizations, shall we?

Sample size

Nauru only has population of 14,000. Looks like USA has most obese people.

So if you were the 5th fattest person in a room with a 180 people it would be wrong to generalize you as fat???

I think you're missing the point. Obesity is a worldwide problem, and there is an obesity problem in Europe as well as many other places in the world.

Also, all generalizations are stupid.

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

GTFO with ur f endless, pointless, boring and annoying discussions about being fat ppl, fat stinger, "my country is better than urs" and all this f nonsense bull****.

If u wanna discuss this kinda ****, creat a "High Stakes Fatty thread" or a "High Stakes country berating thread". Plz leave this one to High Stakes Poker.
