Re: ***OFFICIAL WSOP SWEAT THREAD***

Now I don't feel so bad over J 10 cracking my AA in the $6 rebuy tonight.Poker is such a cruel game at times.Fair play to AE though he handled himself with great class and dignity,he's gone way up in my estimations.

Re: ***OFFICIAL WSOP SWEAT THREAD***

It just seemed like they were only shoving against him, this should probably be looked into. He played great tho, oh well. For as much hate as he gets, he certainly handled it with a lot of class.

As long as Laak isn't around, AE is awesome. Hell of a great player.

Never said he was."Eire Abu" is Irish language(gaeilge) for "Up Ireland".It is a common expression and has been around long before Pokerstars high stakes games existed.Capiche!

Re: ***OFFICIAL WSOP SWEAT THREAD***

I have seen rails much worse that those brits. for example, drunk people berating players or making stupid jokes about them, etc etc, in wpt final tables. and they were from america.I guess celebrate is much worse than that.

molinn, you never get tired of act like a ******. well done.

Re: ***OFFICIAL WSOP SWEAT THREAD***

Most of the guys there have spent tens thousands to be there and it seems the British guys obv stick together and support each other. Everyone else complaining jus jelly they don't get anywhere that behind them apart from maybe couple ppl. Most of them won't make a final table so when a mate does obv they're gonna take time out enjoy themselves get drunk cheer shout whatever. Get over it.

Cheering is fine. Getting drunk is fine. Spitting up beer and acting like disgusting slobs is NOT fine. Which is why security was called and the slobs were escorted out. So people complaining are not "jus jelly." Get over it.

Re: ***OFFICIAL WSOP SWEAT THREAD***

a) There wasn't a chop between 2nd and 3rd in chips when they were 3-handed and Antonio OK'd the deal.

b) The rail was incredibly good spirited. There was great banter between Brits and large Brazilian contingent. All the competitors seemed to enjoy having cheering and good humour rather than the deathly silence so many FT's are played out in.

c) Remarkable that without people be there their first instinct is to think us 'Brits' are out of line and Rio security are the good guys. Picking people pretty much arbitrarily and threatening them with lifetime bans if they didn't immediately the premises. We might be 'slobs' but if you build a stand seems reasonable to expect people to come and support their friends playing for life-changing amounts of money.

You do realize that two of them were James Akenhead and Chris Moorman don't you. 100% sure they don't live with their parents.

Brits have passion Yanks don't simple fact, even the commentary team said that.

this...the cheering of americans is literally crap compared to latin americans and europeans, not only in poker

just an awesome example:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p170mCnL0mM

these are true fans. this is one example which is pretty standard in europe and south america. i don't see americans doing not nearly close to this is basketball, football or baseball. They just sit there clapping there hands
