  1. The following comment was made by Mike "The Mouth" Matusow to another player at the 2004 World Series of Poker Main Event: "I've got big Cahonees. You've got small Cahonees."
  2. Here is a quote (paraphrasing) from old time gambler/poker player, Puggy Pearson: "You can beat up on a player and pound on him, and pound, and pound some more and he'll keep coming back if he thinks the game is honest, but if you cheat him out of a quarter he'll never play with you again." On a similar note, Amarillo Slim said: "You can shear a sheep many times but you can skin it only once."
  3. I'm not surprised that no one could answer the above trivia question, because the poker challenge mentioned occurred over 20 years ago... Some of you know that I wrote a poker themed screenplay. There is even a thread about it right here on Full Contact Poker. Here is the url to that thread: An Inside Peek At The Award Winning Poker Themed Screenplay “Vegas Knights" - General Poker Forum - FCP Poker Forum (fullcontactpoker.com) I bring up the script because the famous person who made the poker match challenge and actually wrote these words to the person he challenged- "We
  4. Trivia question: This comment/challenge wasn't made at the poker table but I've seen it in print. Both people involved are well known. One player challenged the other person to play a poker match for a considerable amount of money. Who was the famous person who challenged the other famous person to a heads up poker match and wrote this: "We both talk a good game, it's time now that we put up or shut up. I am throwing you the challenge. Are you man enough to meet it?" And for the record I'm not talking about the Doug Polk challenge or the Daniel challenge of Hellmuth. I'm re
  5. Doyle Brunson quotes from past High Stakes Poker shows: He called a huge reraise on 4th street with just a pair of Aces and a 10 kicker. Later, as a way to justify the call, he said: "When you don't make a pair for 8 hours, you go crazy." Comment he made to the other players after a very long time of being card dead: "I would kill if I could get two Jacks."
  6. No need to be nostalgic. Next year Daniel should park his RV at the Rio and take a 7 dollar 5 minute cab ride back and forth from Ballys during breaks. Also there will be no lines at the Rio's convienience stores and restaurants unlike what will probably be happening at Bally's. Why change a good thing. 😊
  7. "Bill Smith is the greatest player in the world after 2 beers, and one of the worse after 4. " I can't remember the exact quote but T J Cloutier (aka T J Cookier) said something similar to the above about former world champion Bill Smith who is now deceased. Cloutier also said Smith had great reading ability when he was halfway drunk.
  8. And then there's the poker term "bad beat". Here's a real bad bad beat!! Neil Peart Drum Solo - Rush Live in Frankfurt - YouTube
  9. And then of course there’s the sayings: “ON A RUSH” and “PLAY THE RUSH” Yes, the almighty Rush; you know, that period of time within a session when the world revolves around you. The chips just keep coming your way, with you winning pot after pot after pot. True rushes don’t happen often but when they do there’s nothing like it. What’s even scarier to the other players at the table is a player who knows how to take full advantage of a rush. The rushee often become looser and more aggressive at just the time the other players are starting to tighten up as their stacks dwindle
  10. Hey Guys, enjoyed your comments on Noel Furlong who recently passed. Forgot all about his famous call against Huck Seed with Ace 3 suited. Huck couldn't believe it when Noel turned over his hand.
  11. Well the 4.3 billion Resorts World has finally opened (only took 7 years). The Trooper has said the poker room is nice and the chairs are comfortable. He said the poker tables are small though. He also said the room had about 80% regs but that's probably to be expected with the regulars checking out the new room in town. It will probably take a month or two before the true character of the room shows itself. As far as the property itself, the below video starting at the 1:23 mark probably does the best job of showing the essence of the interior. New Resorts World Las Vegas Grand
  12. "I've got the Nuts." Probably the worse phrase you will hear your opponent say at the poker table. Most of you know it means that they have the best possible hand. I've heard several players say the phrase a second or two before they show their hand at showdown. I don't know why they choose to say it. Maybe, if they are a player who bluffs a lot, it's to reinforce the idea in their opponents mind that yes sometimes even they wake up with a great hand.
  13. From the above linked article: "The DOJ’s decision to not pursue the Wire Act ruling anymore makes it clear that it has once again accepted its stance that the Wire Act applies only to sports betting and not all forms of gambling. The ruling also makes it clear that interstate poker agreements are no longer under threat and interstate poker operators will be able to function as usual."
  14. Looks like happy days could be here again as the Department of Justice refused to appeal a recent court decision regarding online gambling, thus allowing interstate online poker to occur legally. DOJ New Stance On Wire Act Makes Interstate Online Poker Fully Legal (legalgamblingandthelaw.com)
