Good jorb Subbs.
 
2013-03-16 05:12:34 PM  
Aw, I wouldn't have guessed it'd be Raymer. I thought Jamie Gold would be most likely for shady stuff.
 
2013-03-16 05:16:41 PM  
C'mon, subby. His nickname is Fossilman. You couldn't be bothered with the "bury his bone" joke?

I was about to post that link. Bad week for WSOP winners.

/At least Raymer knows how to play poker.
//And Yang had a plan that worked, even if it was screwy.

This.

I've played poker with Jamie Gold a number of times. He has a hot Asian girlfriend. He's a nice guy and I think he's smart enough to stay out of most major trouble, despite that whole splitting his winnings fiasco.
 
2013-03-16 05:33:16 PM  
Poker?  He will be playing Poke him in the Pokey.

Sorry, it's all I got.

Forty-Two: Aw, I wouldn't have guessed it'd be Raymer. I thought Jamie Gold would be most likely for shady stuff.


While opening the link I was literally saying outloud "Please be Gold, please be Gold."  The guy had no business winning his bracelet, so I've hated him since.

Also, it should be noted that the SI article says it was a gay-prostitution sting, while the ACTUAL report/article says it was a female prostitution sting.  So, yah, it's not as "bad" is the SI article makes it out to be.

i remember watching his run circa 2008 or whatever when he won the WSOP and while there is a level of skill to poker, he hit some ridiculous flops.  like the little odds / percentage calculator, he'd be at like 6% vs 94% and so on and consistently get what he needed. he was all the time pulling out some miraculous cards.

they say its better to be lucky than good, he's walking proof.

I swear that guy looks just like Colbert to me.
 
2013-03-16 05:50:26 PM  
He always had "that look", but funny guy. Never took himself too seriously.

Definitely won't be now...

Doesn't poker itself have a hot Asian girlfriend? Who, fun fact, went on a show named after, well, you?

The men face misdemeanor charges of prostitution and attempted crimes against nature.

I either want to know where to find those types of hookers, or have a very long talk with North Carolina about how the penis going into an orifice is very natural.
 
2013-03-16 05:54:45 PM  
I've played with most of these guys. Probably played with king of vegas. Is it REALLY a story that a fat, balding poker player with money like hookers?

I auditioned for the show. I know Dave Stann and Kenny Einiger who were on the show.

I won a show called the Ultimate Blackjack Tour. It was on CBS for one season. They filmed a second season but it was never broadcast.

FTFA: A Wake Forest Police Department spokesperson said Greg Raymer was one of six men who went to the hotel when they responded to an advertisement posted by undercover police on a website often used by prostitutes Craigslist.

There.

I know I've told this story before but it's worth telling again:

The year after Gold won the ME, I was in Vegas during the WSOP and was playing a daily tournament at the Monte Carlo. Got down to the final table and one guy just hit every flop and every river like it was nothing. The dealers started calling him "Jamie Gold" as he wiped out the whole table with shiat hands and it came off as like they were insulting him (I don't think he spoke much English). Luckily, I was smart enough to stay back and got to finish 2nd and made $450 thanks to that.

So what.  Prostitution should be completely legal anyway.  Save the court system for violent criminals.

That sucks, I moved to Vegas in April of 2004, and I was on the rail for the WSOP main event that he won.  Seeing 5 million dollars in cash is pretty f'ing cool...

Wow, I thought that was just a coincidence. I didn't think I'd actually pegged where your name came from.

desertgeek: starlost: poker is not a sport

annnnnd this thread is official now.


I really do think someone ought to launch one huge 'what is/is not a sport' project and settle this entire line of argument. (I actually tried to submit it as a project to some of the more major sports websites. Here's a giant list of just about everything that someone, somewhere, would argue is a sport, let's put them each to an up-or-down vote and see where we stand. I still have the list and everything. They didn't bite.)

I'll tell you this much. After I play poker for 8-10 hours, I'm exhausted. Mental activity causes physical fatigue I'm convinced.

Remember that list of sport/not a sport activities I mentioned I had in hopes of making a project out of it? Those are all on there under 'collectible card games', 'Scrabble' and 'Golf (miniature)'. (I split golf into three entries, thinking they might all draw different responses: links, miniature, and long-distance driving.)

Like I said. Comprehensive. And I really really want to find someone to host that project.
