Here is a link to Elo's story about a typical encounter with a pack of livetard hyenas that he wrote shortly before coining "livetard":

Guessing that the arson threat might be taken as a joke, but his location was a problem. No inside knowledge on any of that.

It is an amazingly funny rant and sad, as well. I always rooted for him.

I was in Vegas recently and someone introduced himself as Chau Giang. Really?

Was he rubbing his chest and belly with both hands as he said it?

Fun hand from 80:

UTG+1 raises, two cold calls, pops 3bets(!), I cap QQ from the CO. 6 players to a flop. Flop comes KQ5. Pops bets, I raise, everyone folds, pops 3 bets. I call. Turn 5, I call. River brick. I call and pray for Aces. Pops shows KK, I throw my queens face up, and pops jokes best hand all the way.

Re: 2017! NC/LC THREAD! let us gogogogo

Somehow ended up playing 5 hours of 75 mix Saturday night / Sunday morning. Some noteworthy accomplishments included misreading my hand and folding a 65A pre-draw, and opening AKKJ 1s in Badugi because I thought we were in the O8 round.

But I ran good, so clearly I am expert .
