Really, no important topic ever gets bumped off the first page because invariably every single person reading the thread will give his or her 2 cents, even if it's the same 2 cents 90 other people have ever given.
one of the first things I noticed when I started lurking here. someone would have the silliest premise, theory or idea and often times it would lead to great conversation or lulz. the ones that didn't died.

also, +1 for the grandiose wording by baudib

Flash Mob-Poker sites. Phil Laak

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGxVU_d1zNM&feature=fvsr

Good Flash mob dance at a trade show? See a few poker site booths, ie Cake poker, Doyles Room and 888. Phil Laak is seen standing watching quite a few times.

Re: *** Official Short questions and answers/small topics thread ***

[QUOTE=RayPowers;27966289]NVG sees a lot of posts, and the more new threads we have, the harder it is for people to see all of the various topics that can happen in a day in this high traffic forum. To help curtail this, new threads that don't have a ton of news attached to them, or are not great long term discussion topics are often deleted or quickly locked.



THis makes sense, bury a post that people might think is interesting, yet have two threads about Tony G's angle on Phil Helmuth......LMAO


It's all too clear now.

Re: How rich is Chris Ferguson?

He is a genius who made a TON of cash before you ever heard of him in various business ventures.

How much he has no one knows but it is rumored to be a whole lot.

LOL, not for long! He is in hiding for now... It's only a matter of time before justice is served and he ends up getting his ass handed to him.

Need a new term?

I'm reading the JM threads, and I'm slightly frustrated.

Everyone is referring to "multi-accounting", when what JM did was to adopt someone else's account, which is a subtlely different thing. This is important because to me, ma-ing on a multi-skin network is fundamentally different than on Stars or FT, which have only a single skin.

I'd like to suggest a term for this from horse-racing, where a substitutied horse is called a "ringer". So playing on another person's account could be called "ringer-ing" or RR for short.

Thoughts?

I bet that's not the only tool you want to see him wield. You two dudes should get a room.
