Re: ****May LC Thread****NSFW

Unfamiliar with Joffe.

Funny story...

I get a call a little while ago, lots of clutter and static and noise.. it's Hokie.

He's at the Caps vs Pens game and it had just ended and he's a bit bummed that his Caps got demolished.

So he says him and his brother were sitting there, and these obnoxious Pens fans are sitting a few rows or so up, just tilting the hell out of everyone (game was in DC). So after awhile, Hokie makes eye contact with someone in the Pens group and for some odd reason the guy points to another of the Pen guys and says "this guy plays poker for a living" or something to that effect (maybe I misunderstood lol). So Hokie goes down and goes "hey, are you Jon Ford?" (he knew Croix was going to the game), and alas, Hokie meets Croix.

I heard some drunken blabble in the background from Croix, but thought it was a funny little story to share.

No chick pics! I'm disappointed

Also, just fyi, you can now start the monthly LC thread if you're quick enough. But be aware that you'll run like crap for a month if you do so...or at least I did.

Re: ****May LC Thread****NSFW

The customer service might have gone to complete ****, but I still gotta thank whoever Lee Jones' replacement is for this wonderful rematch button. <3 fishies coming back for 2-3 more losses because they're tilted and want some of this.

EDIT: Oh, and then drop these gems despite being long-term losers at $10 husngs:
fish: ur a nad player
TomfooleryU: nad=bad?
fish: i accpet that
fish: w/e

The visual of him steaming to the point where he fat-fingered every third word he typed made it even better.

Close, but not quite...

Yes, they were tilting EVERYONE across a good 4-5 sections in the lower level. One of his friends got in a fistfight w some Caps donk early in the game (somehow didnt get thrown out). They were totally out of control. Croix was probably the most under control the whole game.

Some Caps fans were sitting next to me. One of them made eye contact with me and is randomly like "I WAS TALKING TO THAT ****ER AND YOU KNOW WHAT HE DOES FOR A LIVING?" I say "what". He says "HE PLAYS ****ING POKER LOLOL!" and i was like uhhhh...

So yeah, pretty amazing that that dude even said that to me bc I had no idea what Croix looked like and vice versa. Pretty funny stuff.

After the game they life-tilted people outside and I don't know how they didn't manage to get annihilated by a mob of angry Caps fans.

The end.

Try BBV4L. Some of those guys are pretty good and I know that people have done it in the past. Offer like $100 on FTP but make it clear that you reserve the right to not pay if you don't like any of them.

Pre Flop: (t45) Hero is BTN/SB with 5 8
Hero raises to t75, BB raises to t120, Hero calls t45

Flop: (t240) 9 8 5 (2 players)
BB bets t120, Hero raises to t450, BB raises to t1380 all in, Hero calls t930 all in

Turn: (t3000) 7 (2 players - 2 are all in)

Re: ****May LC Thread****NSFW

Anybody want to make a prop bet with me on forbidden games? e.g. for the rest of May, you owe me $200 if you play one of your leaky games and I owe you $200 if I play one of mine? I've dropped 3k in the last couple days playing superturbos/MTTs with greater than $150 BI and while I think I'm playing totally fine and that variance is just really severe (win flip plz?), I'm still lighting money on fire when compared to HUSNGs. Need a little extra nudge to cut that **** out.

I played some $200s tonight. Nathan is right. Fish there are just like any other fish, taking shots. I should grow a dick and play them and see what happens. What the **** does it matter? It's worth finding out. I want to be a poker player like MasterLJ and Nathan. Call turn, call any river. Make more thinnish v-bet shoves. Balls.

mjw: I hope you did not take the guffawing/telling you hands as disrespect. It was self-sabotage so I could have an excuse for when you own my soul and I suck out again every single time we play. Like, seriously. Every. Single. time we play. If it were not for you I don't think my lifetime luck would be positive. Hope you are enjoying vacation.

Re: ****May LC Thread****NSFW

^^^ mers, I share the same sentiments with the sup.turbos...

In the last week I am up about 30-35 buyins with HU games, but dropped about 15 of those to sup.turbos... variance is sick in those, I wasn't even playing bad

I remember a while ago when I was tilted playing the $169 sup. turbos, DDbeast (a reg, I am sure u have met him) shoves on me from SB (he was big stackbullying with 3 players left) vs my BB I have AQ, snap call, he has 39 and obv crushes me. They destroy your soul

na no way i'm not up for dick swinging in the LC or for wasting time and $ playing you.

ppl always get like this. win some $ grinding fish then think it's fashionable to be a "degen" that's so basic.

i'm just here to make $ grinding fish not pretending to be something else.
