They gave CM the microphone at the Bellagio a few days ago and he was trying to hustle up action.

You must not play live much, and must have never met him.

And yet you agree to play him 2 tables of the game of his choice?

You should be ashamed of yourself. Insist on 1 table of each or he can GTFO.

(Unless you're better than him at omaha, in which case carry on.)

This is not Crazy Mike but funnily enough may be just as annoying! Maybe even more so because at least Crazy Mike makes you laugh every once in a while in between annoying everyone, this guy just bitches and moans endlessly and humorlessly.

Awesome description. A+.

My Crazy Mike story comes from summer 2006. I spent the summer grinding 2/5nl at Venetian, and would sometimes sweat Crazy Mike's HU matches for a bit after my session.

Anyway, CM is playing his standard 100-200 $10k HU freezeout. Both players are on one side of the table, facing each other (ie 7 seat and 10 seat). Both players start with two racks of green chips ($5k). CM wins every chip from his opponent, who then trades a $5k cash brick to CM for chips. CM slides the chips across the table, breaks open the brick and starts counting...

But as he's counting the cash, he's going slower and slower and slower with each bill. $4400....$4500........$4600................$4700.. ...................$4800.......................... ........$4900..................................... ..........$5000.

And with that, he takes the wad and tosses it across the table, and the cash just splays out across the felt. CM then stands up and does his trademark yell at the top of his lungs. "YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY."

His opponent stands up, points at him, and yells "DON'T YOU EVER FU**ING DO THAT EVER AGAIN!!."

To this day, I have never seen someone more on tilt.

This cant be the same crazy mike up in WA. The descriptions fit this crazy mike to a T, but this crazy mike is middle aged.

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

I was at the Bellagio last night when some guy (who the dealer would say, after he left, that he was someone who wanted people to call him Crazy Mike) comes up to my table with a mixed stack of 5k/10k chips in his hands. He stood there talking about how much money he had like he was trying to make us feel embarrassed that we were playing 1/2. He put down a $100 bill and claimed all-in blind, someone else at the table raised all in before his action with A-J and paired his ace to hold up. He stood up after the pot, talked about his money for a little longer, then went to leave with the other six 21ish kids in hoodies who were waiting for him.

No idea how he got his money but it's too bad that it's the only thing he'll ever have.

Question: Why hasn't Crazy Mike been on top of the Rush Poker bots? It seems to me this should be a full-blown scandal by now.

Hilarious.

This Crazy Mike should brush up his shorthand/fullring NL game and do TV appearances. He'll be more entertaining than Mike the Mouth. And please put him on the same table as Phil Hellmuth.

Crazy Mike, if you're looking for action, I bet Phil Galfond will give you some on a water drinking prop bet. Dead serious.

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

My crazy Mike story:

At the B at like 6am or 8am in the morning, we're playing 1/2NL. I go to the bathroom and when I come back, some guy is sitting in my seat. I get a bit alarmed because he has a rack of chips over my chips. I had around $800 on the table. He says he's just playing "over my chips" but I tell him I'm back and he stands up.

I heard the name "Crazy Mike" before several times playing with people at V and Aria. I never heard stories or seen him before so I didn't recognize him.

We play two hands and some other guy leaves the game allowing this guy (Crazy Mike) to sit down. He's got 5 racks full of white chips. He then explains to everyone that he will be going all in blind for 1 rack of whites at a time. People are confused so he says, "I'm Crazy Mike." A light goes off and I am now happy to put a face to the name. Cool.

He does as he says. He loses twice, then wins to double up, and then loses the $200 the next hand. One of these hands, I have AJ and am in late position but a rock goes all-in in front of me and I muck my AJ. Rock ended up having KK.

Then I pick up KK, Crazy Mike goes all in as usual, I reraise to 200 and we are heads up. He asks me to flip over my cards. I say that I am superstitious and never flip till after the river. Board comes random cards no flush possibilities. He asks me to flip again so I flip and show KK. He asks me which card of his (he still hasn't looked at them) to flip over first. I pick one. It's a T. There is a T on the board. I still got a higher pair. He then flips over the second card and it is a 7. Guess what, there was a 7 on the board. Two pair. He takes my $100.

He then lost the next 2 hands and left. I never got a shot at getting my money back. As of now, Crazy Mike 1 MrDucks 0. I thought he was a very fun guy at the table. He definitely changed the action and the game completely. I could see how people would be annoyed, but even though I lost $100 to him, I was ahead going in and what are you gonna do? I think he has every right to do that with his money and he's got a funny personality.

He also introduced me to strawberry juliuses at the Bellagio. He ordered one and downed it really quick. I asked him if it was good and thought I would try it. I have had tons of them since then. Thanks Crazy Mike/mrgatorade for introducing me to the strawberry julius.

Since then, I've seen him at the V but he hasn't sat at my table again. I look forward to the next time he comes over to my $1/2NL table or $2/5nl table.

Also, is it just me or does he look like the actor that played the older brother on "Boy Meets World"? Will Friedle?
