I think Isildurs last 24h was something like this:

Cole South: win 82k
ZeeJustin: win 200k
durrrr: loose 100k ?
OMG: ?
Cole South: loose 100k ?

Result: approx 80k

Please correct me if you have other info..the last three battles was during my bedtime...

River (Pot $97,200): 3h
Cole bets $85,195 (all in)
Ziig calls $72,600 (all in)

Ziig has Ad 8d Kc Jc
Cole has 9h Jd Kh Th
Cole shows King Queen high
Ziig shows a pair of Eights

Ziig wins pot $242,400

wtf, my mind is exploding. i mean this makes no sense.
calling turn is maybe even sicker than the river. coles gotta be quite a good favourite on turn.

Board is try as hell. Cole never has 64/96 unless its w/AA,KK,QQ which are 5 bet pre/or bet on flop. The only card really is a Q that worries ziig since the rest are probably not in his range and or all under cards to the 8. And cole is not a fav on turn. obvs super sick ldo but unless ziig was tilting he HAD a reason.

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

It's time Brian started playing on a friend's account. When a pro poker player refuses action against one particular player forever I think that's in order. And he is up against him too. Insanity. I like Gus in general and I think he wrote one of the best poker entertainment books ever written, insane job, but to deny action against a player when you are up vs. him in that game lifetime... this is the kind of thing only a real fish is entilted to make. Gus is a pro and it is unethical for him to do this imo.

Also I think it is possible Tom considers 7game against Brian a very good game when Brian is losing. He might have added "I can quit him if you want" later to save face later when he realizes this will be public. Just a thought.

His videos have helped me a lot. On the other hand you didn't.

It amuses me how much hate BT is getting.

You do realise players got life time bans and lost their funds for doing the stuff he's done and all that happened to him was losing red pro status for a month and he claimed to donate some money to charity. Pretty weak.

nice level.

if not,

Spoiler:


edit: yeah i might as well take the second part out of my post, there's no way this isn't a level unless you're a notoriously stupid poster or something. im still lolling at the thought of it being unethical to deny someone action (whether they're worse or not) and it being ethically ok to create a new username when this happens.

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

Simply put, ethics go both ways.

If you were up on me lifetime, denied action on me without specifying a valid reason, I'd do it to you, and to be honest I'd be pretty happy about it if I won.

If anyone claims they wouldn't, I think they are either lying, OR, they are really special people and do have the right to look down on BT (and me, and about 105010 poker players I know).

I know it is insanely hard to be on BT's side on ANYTHING nowadays so I won't discuss this issue further.

Edit: I forgot to specify, if you were up on me AND were a poker pro. Fish can do stuff like that cause they are not part of the whole grinder ethics.

Btw it is also ok to say "I don't feel good about my game, don't wanna play you for some time". It is also ok, I guess, to deny HU action. But sitting out from shorthanded games... lol.

LOL. Bull*poo* imo.
Do you know how many Qxxx hands can we have? 64/96 are quite possible too, rundowns imo. Also 77 and two pairs with hands like AK75ds.

Not good play by Ziig but who cares? Ziig

Unethical must be the most overused word on this forum. It's not unethical to deny action, that's just nonsense.
