First off....dry your eyes princess is definately funnierOver all this drama is pretty much in my pan-o-meter range..it'll pan out without my careBut Ram tries to say not playing for a while means he should get strokes....as most golfers will attest, this is not an automatic guarentee of being a 4 shot swing...Proof is when he talks about shooting 7 pars and a birdie on the back nine...He gave Phil 10 stroke, and lost by 14 the next day, but after playing on the same holes as Phil didn't see enough improvement to change his bet? Thought they could improve enough to overcome, yet lost by 14 strokes...that seems a little weird. Someone was tilting here and making bad decisions. I know I am a pretty conected guy, I am in the balloon business after all...but even I knew Phil was getting coaching a long time before this game, I guess Ram being in England gives him some excuse, but it's not like Phil Ivey isn't a topic of conversation is it?The class thing for Ram to do would have been to pay up on the first day and not play without correction.To keep playing means he expected to beat Phil, and win his money back. If you make this decision, then live with it. There was no gun, but there was clear proof you were behind.I am not really sure I think highly of Phil now, but anyone that places the word honorable and gambler in the same sentance is believing the ESPN hype. Tell me the next time you see a guy go on tilt after a bad beat that you don't hope to look down at pocket aces and get in a hand with him. I would loan him my car, but I wouldn't believe a thing he says when we are setting up a bet.
