WoV lost two prolific contributors over the 18 yo's in a row kerfuffle. AlanMendleson decided to leave after the flak he received because of his "18 yo's" claim. Then, member aceofspades also left, in a show of solidarity since he received similar flak for his 30 losses in a row claim.

It's a shame they both decided to leave. I enjoyed their contributions to the forums.



It would be an understatement to say Alan was a prolific poster. I think he deliberately tried to get under everybody's skin. Not just with the 18 yo's but with the two-dice problem as well. I am not sorry to see him go.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Oh Mike, ya *******. Why did you have to remind me of that. Back to therapy.

Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..

They still argue this to this day on his site (now owned by Dan Druff aka poker pro Todd Witteles).

Now there's a huge debate about loss rebates and naturally Alan's side thinks their stupid and -EV. Honestly, I have no idea why anyone bothers debating these clowns over there.

I'm not sure if he said playing a loss rebate is -EV, at least not in a mathematical sense.
He likes to mislead everyone by playing word games and then he likes to argue with people. He seems to want to get people on the technicalities of the wording.

He wasn't bashed that bad here over the matter of the 18 yo's in a row, people mostly just said it was more likely he was mistaken, gently enough. Perhaps a few jokes were thrown in. He chose to view that as "calling him a liar".
