Congrats, Adam. Time to take up a strength/conditioning program like 5/3/1 now and put on some muscle mass. It'll be good fun to eat your way to 180lbs.

Bubbled podium.

Just wanted to congratulate you Adam, been following the pokercast for many many years and was fun to follow along with this.

But it begs the question, was it in CAD or USD?

Spoilers?!!? Lol. You really think he'd go 7 weigh ins and lose the last one for it all.

Congrats Adam.

Disappointed TC's surprise purchase wasn't some livestock. Dunno if they do it in Canada, but the big livestock auctions are crazy - some animals go for thousands or tens of thousands, based just on what some farmer sees in the ring

So here's the question: Adam, now that you know what it takes – and how hard it was at times – if you had to repeat the ************ bet, would you be willing to do it for less or would you require more?

Whoa... did I suffer a stroke and type a profanity there? Or is it something that's censored in this forum? Let's test it:

Weight loss.
Weight Watchers.
Slim Fast.
Jenny Craig.
Fat Boy Slim.
Jared Fogle.

When TC said that the only way Adam wouldn't make the final weigh-in was if he got hit by a bus. I would counter that he would hit the weight even easier that way. Someone else might have to lift him onto a scale and take the video, but he would be under for sure.

it's censored since it's a major source of spam threads.

Ha! That's actually pretty clever.

I'm just glad I didn't stroke out and accidentally type a different train of thought in my post. Definitely have had some amusing moments from trying to over-multitask.

Just a thought: Poker Fat Camp.

T and Adam take you on a diet journey on a farm in BC, where you exercise, play poker in the sauna to keep your mind off the misery, and practice not eating or drinking anything but water at the poker table for hours on end.

Just getting caught up on the 2018 pods. I can’t believe you ran through the Playboy Mansion story without any mention of Terrence “not Johnny” Chan.
