thejoker was fun to watch.

One night someone was trying to ask him what his bankroll was and was being somewhat obnoxious and he turned it around and asked the person what theirs was. They said something like 110K.

Joker:"Come to my house and play me for 110K".

the person then said he actually had more money he could access- just not online so the bankroll was more like 200K.

Joker: "Come to my house and play me for 200K".

sad that lodden busted, guess it happens to everyone, just didn't think he would go bust to the point where he had to go elsewhere to get action, must have lost at least 2mil+ right? figuring the stakes he was playing its probably much more than that, kinda sick. now in 15 years i bet he is depressed about the fact that he had millions of dollars and if it wasn't for the fact that he was a degenerate gambler while he was a teenager and into his early 20's he wouldn't have to do anything for the rest of his life, he could just play 10/20 all day and it wouldn't matter because all that money he made was invest properly, very sad

i still remember how the forums went nuts when he lost 1,5 mill. in maybe 4 weeks or so dropping 400k in 30 mins vs TiltMeNot alone - and made that huge come back with about 1 mill. on two 200/400 tables some days later. those were the days.

i donīt think he went bust because of poker. seems like he had quite a few bad habits which seperates him from todays winners who live and behave like true athletes.

yeah i'm sure you're at least partially right if not fully correct, but you gotta think about it man, all these teenagers with infinite money at their disposal seem to all be destined to go broke if they continue playing those uber high stakes. if the game is about winning money, than taking ur winning's and investing them soundly in things that will at the very least net you a small gain with no possibility of loss, or at least a very very small chance of it as nothing is 100% guaranteed.

it seems most of the kids these days have ego's that are way to big and unmanagebale and people riding their jocks and giving them ego boosts always lead to a bad downward spiral. for every story you hear of someone being smart with their money, there are 50 kids who had millions who lost it all by continuing to play that high for no reason other than to prove that they can. its sorta like when you're in high school and you play basketball, you always want to play with the older college kids, or play in the best aau leagues, but in the end a lot of kids burn out on playing ball or get seriously injured and their careers are over before they started, and they have nothing to fall back on, no education, no job experience, nothing. that is the same thing that is happening to this generation of kids who adopted poker as their hobby instead of playing a real sport.

having a few million liquid when you're 20 years old is probably the worst possible thing for any kid because you'll never really know the real worth of money, its not a knock, just a fact of the matter. there is no way you could know the real worth if you're playing 200/400 NL because if you did there is no way you would be playing 4 tables with at least 160k total spread out, its insane

Saw TheTerrorist on Prima a couple of days ago, playing 3/6 NLH HU. As in $3/$6 (or might have been in euros, can't remember). Pretty sure that was the screenname, not sure if there are any "almost similar but not quite the same".

he sure loved to trashtalk people, and it worked pretty good for him. Remember when he made Juanda so upset that he challenged him to at live match.
