Hmm...

Howard has millions of fans and he's a co-owner of Full Tilt Poker.

Alright, gonna try to get this thread on track.

I have not received a response from anyone at FTP regarding the emails I sent to them. It's possible they haven't seen it yet, it's possible they don't care, and it's very possible they have chosen not to respond because it's a huge cluster [censored] right now.

Bacon Unagi sushi is the most delicious thing ever and I dare any of you to make a fat joke regarding it, because I won't care. (choo choo)

This thread isn't about debating whether or not I'm a very weird dude, it's about the professionalism that is lacking within the FTP ranks and Nat has certainly shown me a few more interesting things:

http://www.natarem.com/2007/11/08/ho...nd-weird-dude/

I think the whole thread is hilarious, but honestly it's run its course until I get a response or if someone wants to debate bacon sushi for the next 300 or so replies (which I won't mind doing).
What a good blog entry.

Also, I agree with what you said except for the fact that they might not have seen it at this point. I think that is virtually impossible.

Officially never making fun of gobbos weight again because dids just made it jump the shark.

Also I think people need to realize that this is just the way dids argues. I can certainly speak wrt arguing with dids and I will be the first to admit I am insanely over the top when arguing sometimes, but with dids its pretty much always "well ive made my point, if you disagree i am going to not listen and belittle you". I've seen it happen hundreds of times. Don't let it bother you, theres really nothing to be gained from it.


1- where did I make fun of gobbo's weight in this thread?

2- where did I do what you suggest in the 2nd paragraph?
1- "being that overweight is basically just slowrolled suicide."

bonus quote from the next page:

"He knows he's fat, I can't imagine that somebody pointing that out, and pointing out how unhealthy that is is going to make him feel worse."

one of these things is not like the other?

I mean sure, you dont say GOBBO IS FAT. Like you have in the past, which you would have(and did) rip on people for saying to you in the past.

I just don't get why you can't resist jumping on gobbo. I dont know where this "forum sacred cow" bs came from, but seriously, every thread gobbo is involved in there are like 30 people making fun of him. How you could begin to call him a sacred cow in that situation is simply shocking.

wrt where did you argue like that in this thread:

"The issue is that simpletons like Nation and yourself"(trying to make point while not actually making point but only insulting dissenters).

also see the examples nation provided as they are actually kind of hilarious and exactly what i was talking about.

also see:

"Idiots and people like Nath who aren't idiots but are failing to think critically"(because you disagree with me, you are an idiot)

whatever, like i said, my chance of convincing you you actually do this is pretty much 0% no matter what the evidence.

Couple of factoids

1. Online players criticize live pros.
2. Some do it more vocally than others.
3. Most good poker players think they're great.

gobbo probably made a mistake being so outspoken about some live pros being terrible. It's just a bad idea to tap the glass in any way.
Right. And I don't mind if Fricke try to humiliate them in interviews and here at 2+2. It's his thing. It's just bizarre that he brought up a sponsorship deal with just Full Tilt Poker (the essence of “famous tv pros”) given his appearance in the episodes from the event.

I love to see him write to Pokerstars and ask for similar deal.


But because Fricke said in a respond to me that this is not about sponsorship, it is about the “lack of professionalism” at FTP, I doubt he will try Pokerstars. I mean, there are no humiliating potential there.

Fricke, good luck in the future. I enjoyed to see you play. If you still are around in 5-10 years I am sure you will do things a lot different outside the tables.

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

blah blah gobbo is fat, great. congrats everyone.

gobbo is right; the whole point of this thread is supposed to be about FTP's lack of professionalism and their stupidity. that being said, you can't be surprised when the collective idiocy of 2+2 (bbv) derails a thread due to standard groupthink.

if you want serious business, gtfo the internet, or post in SMP/EDF.

Having just followed gobbo's link, don't you think it's at best a little disingenuous to try and pat yourself on the back for not outing these guys while also going out of your way to publicize what they did and stressing all of the implications?

Do you know what "intellectually dishonest" means?

Do you suggest that I don't think you're ******ed, and am just lying about it to win arguments? You can be sure, that 100% I do in fact think you're a ****** in the pejorative sense of the word.
