Life is good. I see that I have been officially made the third most hated man in poker. This kind of wounds me as you know I have big heart. It is for this reason that I would like to apologize to Andrew Robl for my behaviour in the recently broadcast Big Game episode.
I crossed the line with calling the clock on him and giving him a big welcome to the game. I like the kid and wish him all the best – he’ll thank me in later years for this treatment – he will be a man for it. Robl learned that I am big crocodile with Lithuanian stripes – unlike Vlad the Impaler I don’t go for the neck I bite nit heads off clean as this picture shows.
Though I apologize to Robl, I still think I had a point about his nittish waiting at a bus stop behaviour – it drove me to distraction – it made me mad! After all, here’s a kid that makes millions of dollars from the click of a mouse and he becomes one in the harsh live environment. He is merely a starter for a hungry and angry Lithuanian saltie like me.
Andrew, you have to stand up for yourself or you’ll get beaten and eaten by the bigger predators – if you just sit there and take your time you will get hunted down. Take this as a lesson from Tony G. You saw what happened on that aeroplane in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Someone packed a crocodile in their sports bag, it escaped and run amok.
I love all my haters, I really do
What made me laugh was that Daniel Negreanu even called for the trike for Robl at one point – that’s a bit rich coming from kid poker considering I still adamantly believe he stole my bike and trike after the PartyPoker.com Premier League IV. To this day he remains a bike thief – guilty until proved innocent.
I also see some forum comments about the lovely loose cannon in this episode. Elizabeth Houston is a delightful lady who played for an excellent charitable cause and she showed heart and did well. Importantly, this loose cannon also played hard after the show so I have nothing but respect for her. And before you say anything, there was no swapping – I saved that for Viffer. Will I call Houston? Only if I want an ace from space!
I would like to thank the wonderful 2+2 community for venting at me for being too harsh on the young pro – I love all my haters, I really do and hope they can vent against me even more.
That’s it for now. I’m hungry and off to play some Crocodoplis at PartyCasino.com.
