Rumor: 20/40k PLO at razvadov - stories wanted

I just heard from a very well known and respected pro that just came back from there. Lineup sounded like guaranteed fireworks. Any rail bird stories? We would love to hear them!

2k/4k PLO was listed right on their website for many days. 20k/40k is probably random straddle hands.

Stream of the tournaments confirmed the game had Aussie Matt, Leon, and Tony G. Don't know who else. Probably similar to the normal crazy PLO lineups in Leons games on streams, so maybe guys like Rob, Trickett, etc

This was posted on the PP Live Instagram. Pretty sure that's Bobby Baldwin! What a lineup!

I used to go there in the mid 90's and it was loaded with brothels and a McDonalds. Crazy they built that casino there.

Threads like this are why I still check NVG.

A WSOPE commentator said Tony G won a 2 million dollar pot vs Leon and Aussie Matt playing 2K/4K PLO and then took it all to a craps table.

Was there for a couple days. Tony G won a 3 way all in pot for around 3M total.
The day after, Bobby Baldwin came next to me talking with Tony G . Tony asked him how he was doing at the table : "loosing 800k but i'm ok" with a smile.

Didn't know Makoto Nagano, the ninja warrior, plays poker, what a table. Nice of Leon to invite Gus to deal, make a few euros for zoom 500 plo roll.

Wonder if being juiced up helps Aussie Matt's game any.

Abstract
In nonhumans, the sex steroid testosterone regulates reproductive behaviors such as fighting between males and mating. In humans, correlational studies have linked testosterone with aggression and disorders associated with poor impulse control, but the neuropsychological processes at work are poorly understood. Building on a dual-process framework, we propose a mechanism underlying testosterone's behavioral effects in humans: reduction in cognitive reflection. In the largest study of behavioral effects of testosterone administration to date, 243 men received either testosterone or placebo and took the Cognitive Reflection Test (CRT), which estimates the capacity to override incorrect intuitive judgments with deliberate correct responses. Testosterone administration reduced CRT scores. The effect remained after we controlled for age, mood, math skills, whether participants believed they had received the placebo or testosterone, and the effects of 14 additional hormones, and it held for each of the CRT questions in isolation. Our findings suggest a mechanism underlying testosterone's diverse effects on humans' judgments and decision making and provide novel, clear, and testable predictions.

So I take it the reduction in "cognitive reflection" is probably not exactly performance enhancing for poker. ;-)

I'd say it's ability to help keep you stay young and the ability to recover faster as a PED for both physical and mental abilities as long as you have discipline. If you sleep 8 hours having a higher level test or substitute test will help brain the brain recover faster and better over those hours just like the rest of the body.

Is he doing it under DR's oversight or just juicing? I wouldn't be surprised if over juicing will make you dumber with less impulse control and more anger which gets in the way of cognitive ability. There's probably a nice sweet spot in there. On top of that I think it's safe to say the fella already suffered from low T levels anyways so it's probably gonna help a lot if he's anywhere near the sweet spot.

Re: Rumor: 20/40k PLO at razvadov - stories wanted

other than the noosebleed tony G pots, most interesting thing to me is John Cynn sitting the game.

From coverage on ESPN he seemed to have more sense than to bink a single MTT (albeit the BEST one to bink) and jump into one of the largest and swingy live cash games in the world.

Assuming he had all of himself, after taxes he netted 5-6M ??

What was the buyin for this game?

Anyone know how he did ?
