Plus, what's all this about gobbo saying some VERY negative statements about the 'pros'? I must've missed that part.
I think he was overly truthful in some Cardplayer interviews.

Re: Beat: Am a freak and a very weird dude.

i don't really see the problem with FTP turning him down. The only reason anyone is arguing is because you're all friends with him.

I'm sure Fulltilt has an image it wants to portray as prototypical of "their" players.

That seems to be one of professionalism at the poker table. Whether these people actually are or aren't is irrelevant. It's how people see them and what image they provoke.

For an example, look at the aussie millions coverage. i just checked out the first 30 seconds. Andrew Black and Gus Hansen are sponsored by FTP. They all look neatly shaven, showered, and well put together. Jimmy looks like he just rolled out of bed and through on some clothes.

there's nothing wrong with what he did or chose to wear or anything, but i don't see how anyone is surprised that he doesn't portray the image FTP is looking for

Dude, you got lucky last year and didnt even win. Where is the incentive for FT to hvae them represent you?

I see PA and I see you and there is no comparison. You don't have consistent online results etc. and nothing live for ages.

It's cheeky to ask so dont be surprised about the response.
everything in your posts is always ******ed. props on your consistency

Re: Beat: Am a freak and a very weird dude.


Wow ... I can't believe so much about this

1) Howard made such a stupid remark (seems above all that)
2) Howard typed it in an email (a business email no less)
3) Brain dead support forwarded obvious bombshell TO GOBBO!!

This is one of those moments when all of the stars had to line up just perfect for this to happen. And we all get to be there.... cool.

When Gobbo was at Canterbury last month, toooooons of people were doing the standard "is that Gobbo?!?" type of double takes, whispers, nudges etc. He's definitely marketable.

He also seems like a pretty cool dude irl, too.
i noticed the same thing, he was on my left and people were kinda lookin at him trying to place him. And he busted and i said "no one here knew it but that guys a millionaire. And so a couple of the old guys didnt have a vlue still but the younger people were like omg its gobboboy!
LOL @ Gobbo a Millionare

gobbo though

I think this all started because Howard and Gus are BFF.

Re: Beat: Am a freak and a very weird dude.

Obviously, the play is to cross post this at FCP, and get sponsorship @ Stars.

For the record I've started dressing and taking care of myself a lot better since then. Aussie Millions was my 3rd 10k and I did 0 laundry for the 3 weeks I was gone from home over the 15k miles I traveled.
LOL at all the Howard hating in this thread. from the tone of gobbo's posts, it sounds like he understands where howard is comming from.
Howard is fighting harder than just about anyone to get online poker completely legit. maybe u guys should give him a break for using the word freak instead of saying, gobbos usually unkempt and not careful with his words when he's on camera.

There's more going on in this thread than that.

To wit: email comes back saying only "We are sorry, but at this time we are choosing not to take you up on that. Thanks for inquiring." and this thread doesn't exist.

It's one of the funniest threads in quite a while because they failed to just do that.

Re: Beat: Am a freak and a very weird dude.

I thought it was a nice compliment:


The word "freak", when used in a slang context, also has positive connotations. The term can be used to describe one who is unusually skilled or talented in a particular area.
