Re: john murphy

Yeah, he was definitely more marketable than all of the other mid 20s aggro white americans who got deep in the main at one point.

Idk why he didn't blow up as a huge tv poker player back during the boom. I always liked him because he overslept that one day.

Have you not even watched the main event on tv? It wouldn't shock me if there were at least 5 people in it every year that are legally retarded.

Re: john murphy

oversleeping was all part of the strategy to make him so popular, one of the most popular ever! He was so good, yet he didn't even want it ...
