Yeah.. it was when he got taken out last year at the WSOP

"Honey, they forgot one thing. I can dodge bullets baby"
"This is Flippin Bull Stuff" (not bull Sh*t.. lame how they can't swear"
"They call this the world series of poker? I bet they can't even spell poker"


the only one matasow said was "I wouldn't want to play against me either"

I will always remember D'Agastino as the man who had the worst bad beat ever.

It was about a year ago, he was in a tournament with a monster, I mean like 6:1 over everybody, chip lead. Then his pocket Aces get cracked by a J/5 flush draw that hits on the river, leading up to the last hand where he has pocket Kings, pocket Q's and pocket J's go into hand with him, and the flop gave each of them trips. I've never seen anyone so baffled by how playing so well could result in such disasterous losses, and I can't fault him for being baffled. Even luck scarcely explains how rare his string of bad beats were.

That was the United States Poker Championships where Dagostino took all those beats right in a row. Ive never seen a guy do so little wrong and have so much go bad for him. The worst hand was the one where Hoyt moves all in from SB with 7-8 off and Dagostino quickly calls from the bb with 10-10. Hoyt being the luckbox he is flops three 7's and then turns quads just to rub it in.



My favorite player isnt on the list, its Micheal "The Grinder" Mizrachi, I actually met him down in Florida when I was visiting some friends, hes a real cool guy. Hes absolutely tearing up the tournament circuit right now, hes something like 5th or 6th already in all time tournament winnings at the age of 25. I expect him to pick up a bracelet or 2 at this years world series as well.

I like Ivey for his calm demeanor but at the same time I like the Australian Tony G (don't remember his last name) because he is such a chatterbox at the table and gets his opponents tilting with it so much... Strange contrasts...

Helmuth is entertaining... to a certain extent.

I dunno, Ferguson's got a good shtick.

I only watch poker when I'm pretty damn bored... which I think I might be now. I wonder if there's any poker on?
