It is pretty dead I think though. I've now been here about a year, I don't think I could imagine sticking with it for years if it remains at the level it is at today.

And far as truth or not truth, what would prove it? A pic of huge stacks of money with a handwritten MDAWG Post-It next to the stacks? A pic of $50K in chips pulled out at the casino with a handwritten MDAWG Post-It next to the chips? A pic of stacks of paid $10K markers with a handwritten MDAWG Post-It next to the markers? What would any of those prove? Not that I won. And would I really want an internet forum to get to know me that well?

I read that thread here about the lion tamer guy, SiegfriedRoy and his million dollar win. I mentioned at the end of the thread some numbers from a few of my past trips, and how what he posted might be true. Apparently the Wiz logged into his Player Account and saw the million win and still you guys didn't believe him. So why would any intelligent person bother to prove anything to an internet forum, especially to this crowd?

But getting back to what PokerGrinder said, that's about it, spot on. It's fun to relate one's past. If one's past was fun.

Did you ever do a follow up on that situation? If not, I think you should. That might be a bad example to prove your case.

" oh ya, well I didnt want to be here anyways."

Not getting all the accolades and attention you seek. And no one's buying it eh?

I never understand why people start a thread like this. You're not the first, of course. But you're not even trying to be productive; you're just insulting those who are here.

Itís like at my parents store, my mom gets so irritated when people come up and tell her that the prices are too high. If they are too high then go away, if the forum isnít interesting enough for you, go away. I can guarantee nobody will miss you Mdawg.

Iím being mean? He made a thread to tell everyone he thinks the forum is crap! How rude is that to Mike, the owners or us members who enjoy this forum?

I enjoy MDawgís posts, and would miss them if he dropped out. Rather than complaining about the lack of content, I challenge him to make it what he wants it to be by adding valuable content. Start a conversation on a topic that interests you.

Not saying I believe it, but the numbers aren't as daunting as you might think. $1B handle is 333 5 hour sessions at 60 hands/hour and $10k/hand.



With an expected value of negative a few million dollars. But he really won a fraction of a percent on that billion dollar handle without doing anything to change the house advantage. Explain how that is believable?
