Why do the Pros do this? (Phil Gandolf photoshop thread)



I see this all the time. Phil Gandolf is sitting at one table with 40k, and right below him Trex is sitting with 40k at the same limits.

Why do they do this? Why not just play eachother? Or are they hoping some random person sits down with 40k and starts playing them? It can't be table selection since Gandolf is playin Ivey right now.

Re: Why do the Pros do this?

I don't know why I even bothered to open this--I guess to mock OP. But glad I did. Some of the best threads start off with the worst posts, and they often involve Phil Gandolfini (like the cat one). Nice work shronk.

I'd see Ivey as the Green Power Ranger (Because he's kinda got that golden bling shield and is stronger than the other rangers) while Galfond is probably the Red Ranger (because he's kind of the leader of the group of rangers [which symbolize the pool of online players]). When the two of them fight clearly we are all cheering for the red ranger but sometimes we still feel like the green ranger is too strong for him.

Hope this helps.
