Who is Crazy Mike? And what's his game?

I was playing at the "V" the other day and there was this kid 25ish and every 15 minutes or so, he would yell like he had a scorpion in his pants. YAYAYAYAYAYAYA!!!!! Sounds like Geronimo charging into battle. I've seen him playing HU pretty high stakes.

Is this Crazy Mike any good at the pokers, or is he just a crazy degen?

I here people talking about him. What's his story? Whats his game?

Re: Who is Crazy Mike? And what's his game?

he's crazy. name is mike, he plays poker. true story.


i've witnessed crazy mike in person years ago when i was playing donk stakes in a local indian casino before i even knew what 2+2 was. in comes a loud mouth, cocky, d-baggish (no offense) blonde guy holding 10k worth of black challenging anybody to HU limit 50-100 or higher. this was when the biggest game running was 20-40 or 2-4 NL. think he's mostly LHE hu specialist.

Re: Who is Crazy Mike? And what's his game?

Watching Mike say raise in 75-150, and proceed to throw three racks of blue in the middle. Priceless. "CALL ME CRAZY MIKE!"

Dubble, from what i know/heard, he inherited about $30 mil at 21. Thats his story.

Re: Who is Crazy Mike? And what's his game?

He was sitting at the 1/2NL games at The Venetian a couple weeks back going all in blind every hand for an hour or two. Dropped a few grand maybe.

One of the dealers said he was trust fund kid who just enjoys spewing money. That seemed like a reasonable enough explanation for me.

Re: Who is Crazy Mike? And what's his game?

A sucker like that can **** in someone's hat, and still not get barred, 'cause with him around, poker's not hard.

Is his Momma an old, tasteless, gullible widow woman that would believe I am going to inherit lots from Howard Hughes when he dies? Need a million walking around money while I wait. Contact information please. Please tell Crazy Mike about me.

Re: Who is Crazy Mike? And what's his game?

I met Crazy Mike at the Venetian one day when I was playing in a mixed game and he sat down to have some fun.

What he does is play heads up no limit hold em freezeouts for 10k or whatever his opponent is willing to play for. That's his specialty and I'm assuming what he does for a living. Whenever he wins he likes to go play in the smaller games carrying around his 20k win all racked up with him and just keep going all in blind in NL or in my case, as we were playing a limit mixed game, he would just put out a bet and four raises no matter what the action was and just yell "unlimited" meaning he would raise and reraise every time it got back to him on every street. Sure, he donks off a ton of money at low stakes but he does quite all right for himself. He claimed his bankroll was a little over a quarter million.

Re: Who is Crazy Mike? And what's his game?

CrazyMike is 2p2 poster MrGatorade. He's an anti bot zealot/an anti Dean zealot/and he likes to challenge anybody to heads up matches even if he's likely to be a massive dog. He seems like the most annoying person in the world, but too many people I know and like seem to like him, so maybe he isn't.

Re: Who is Crazy Mike? And what's his game?

I was playing at Bellagio Thurs night and saw him for the first time in my life. He sat down at a 30/60 game, bought in for 5k, and announced he had 250k behind. Played for about 2 hours, and looked like he left down about 2 racks. Never saw him the rest of the weekend

Him and Roc were mythical figures that I thought HOWMANY created through his multi-level levels. Now I have seen Crazy Mike in person, and there was the Roc vs. FBT thread, and now I believe they both actually exist.

I concur.

Personally I love the guy, I think his craziness/annoying thing is just his schtict to get in peoples heads (and it works!), in reality he has a good head on his shoulders.

nope. Mike doesnt drink - with the exception of Pepsi. Lots and lots of Pepsi. We tried to get him to taste wine once, he wasnt having it.

Re: Who is Crazy Mike? And what's his game?

I had a very pleasant encounter (online) with mike aka mrgatorade.
we played 50.100 for a few hours on UB (may thy name be stricken from the books) and he kept trying to ask me questions that a bot could not answer.
I would win a hand and he would say "type in hi mrgatorade i just won a pot worth 679 dollars and i like poker" or other very funny quotes. He would keep repeating it and I didn' mind answering it because I was winning. I found his betting and chat to be so entertaining he is literally crazzzyy.
by the end of the hour he had won about $4,000 and was cordial in his victory.

Re: Who is Crazy Mike? And what's his game?

he's Thorpie on Stars and TheComplainer on FT. he accused pokergirlz of being a bot on Tilt and caused her account of >47K to be confiscated by Tilt.

pokergirlz is MadHaddie on Stars threated to kill him and stalk him every time she possibly can when he sits in
