My first Turning Stone trip was Spring of 07. Went there prob 4-5 times total, wasn't there in the original 2p2 days before anybody knew each other at all.

Later trips just basically turned into playing golf during the afternoon, grinding online at night, then playing Chinese at Emerald until 4AM.

I'm not I just went to that thread after Karak said something. Go.bbo handled it like an absolute champ though.

I don't know if you're dicking around or not but I grinded small stakes mtts pre Black Friday. Barely played since.

I went a couple times in '07, I think Spring and late summer (I remember we drove into Syracuse to Dinosaur BBQ for my birthday that year).

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

I grinded stst pre- black friday and me not being ******ed. I quit poker after like 6 months after I realized that there was nothing in it for me WRT my main body of knowledge, skills, and time.

but i do love poker as a fun game and for taking advantage of me idiotic friends/acquaintances (yes, ive won many $$$ off my friends and don't feel sorry at all for them being stupid)

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

Yeah I think we met a couple times. Back in the good ol' days when AGame was the loudest mouth in the room.

Overall I'm just thankful I didn't quit my degree to play full time when I was 19 years old. Definitely considered it, but having a degree was the only reason I have anything close to the job I currently have.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

I've always wondered what the se'ers played pre bf and how they fared. I obviously know some because I follow mtts pretty closely still but pretty clueless about the cash game world.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

i guess this adequately sums up the thread (gm directly quoting gbo)

People should know that it was always just a suspicion bred from annoyance and lack of anyone else to blame it on. I can't say for sure if you did it or not, but to judge you based on that would be ******ed.

I am not my mother and I don't speak for her, nor her for me but I apologize for us both in this instance. I don't know what else to say.

So, my son's a pretty cool dude, obviously. A better person than me, obviously. And I love him with all my heart, obviously.

There will never be any proof that Adam took the bracelet, and he knows this. I told Jimmy I wouldn't say anything about this, or about the Oscar incident and I'm sorry to him that I exploded on twitter. When Adam LAUGHED at him about both these incidents, I absolutely saw red. I'm sorry, Jimmy.

Anybody else can judge this however you want to, but to Jimmy: once again, I'm sorry and I love you.

To Adam: **** you. go to rehab.

Incredibly accurate, although you posted that a little too late to save me from wasting 30 minutes of my life

I really should buy kenpom, especially since his efficiency #'s rate us higher than everyone else's every year. Just too cheap to pull the trigger - plus I wouldn't use it enough.

The worst part of that are all the random posters trying to put gobbo and co under interrogation and really get to the bottom of the situation. What the **** is wrong with you that you think you should demand answers from people over a situation that has nothing to do with you? NVG posters have the worst targeted cares ever. Stop worrying about who pulled which dog's leg and focus on not drooling on the keyboard.

Posting "lol christians" is very different than making Holocaust jokes or calling someone a terrorist. Not to mention, by definition it's pretty much impossible for the dominant cultural group in a society to be "persecuted". My experience with persecution-complex Christians is that they think people disagreeing with or not kowtowing to their beliefs is equivalent to the sort of systematic racism minority groups actually endure.
nath, as usual, with the most clearheaded and rational post on the subject.
