Re: BRAG+BEAT TLDR: I just played Taylor Caby HU4ROLLZ...lost...but learned valuable lesson :)

i once remember being in the CR chatroom on some random sunday afternoon some 2 or 3 years ago. a newer member came in the chatroom with a pretty depressed tone. he was bummed out about getting scammed by someone for $200 I think. this newer member seemed like a nice innocent younger college aged kid. he was talking really depressed about how this guy scammed him for $200 or so and he now only had a $50 roll or something and had grinded up to $250 from $1 dollar SNG's or something sick over a 3 or 4 month period. taylor could feel the guys pain and i think sent him pretty close to $200 dollars. taylor is a great guy. my only suggestion to taylor (doubt he needs it) is to watch himself now that this stuff is all public and to avoid the scum of the earth angle shooters and scam artists.

Whenever i watch Taylor play or hear him on his videos he always seems to be a really good guy. If i had to bet on a one pro to ship back he would for sure be one of them.

I mean this is nice and all but I really don't think you learned your lesson if he gave any of it back to you. You did not follow his advice well; if we are to believe the story as written, he appears to have thought you were lying about it being anything close to your whole roll until after the fact. Getting 1k back doesn't change the fact you did something definitively idiotic.

I don't get it... send back the 1k...? What... why would he do that... why did he do that. Someone explain please.

I'm pretty sure it's -EV to give back money you've won

I liked watching Taylor on PAD. Seemed like a nice guy. Don't have much experience with his videos, but this was really a super nice thing to do. Honestly I don't know very many that would do such a thing.

Sick story

Taylor did the right thing

The only lesson that you should actually take from this is to not impulsively take extremely irrational risks with substantial consequences.

Re: BRAG+BEAT TLDR: I just played Taylor Caby HU4ROLLZ...lost...but learned valuable lesson :)

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;

If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!

What the Op did is in the first verse, minus the last line (but nobody's perfect.) And the moral of the tale, the true meaning, is in the second verse. Some people see things differently but when the Op was playing Caby he was filling the unforgiving minute and to him it was liberating and he learned something valuable...something intangible and unfathomable to most people. And he was prepared to pay around 1400 bucks for this and ended up getting a 1K discount.

That said, running naked down a hill backwards in broad daylight works too.
