Bottom line... he can flat out play! Has been a champion player for years. Hopefully he can break through this year.
That shit was straightened out years ago - quit being a bi!#÷ and let it go! If you wanna try him some, step up! If not, stfu!!! BTW, I'll take half if you want but I'm sure he has no problem posting his own.
On a side note... we were never friends and we don't speak. He's always been a champion poker player and his time is WAY overdo. If I had a chance to buy somebody in any tournament, it would be Ruberto! Nuff said
Ps. I had a % of helfert in Main and I'd give anything to have a % of Tony in ANY tourney OR cash game he plays.

All I know is Tony is a helluva poker player. That much I know. He wanted a piece of me in the Main Event though. He likes my game too. :smile:

Thanks for the dig. All I know is I played my heart out for two days, and still held on when I couldn't pick up any cards. :shakehead:

Nice job man. I had fun playing the PLO8 1500 and then the Monster Stack which was the 3rd largest live field ever.

I am hoping to go back next year to make another run at it and maybe someday play the main event since deep stack poker is my 2nd favorite game outside of PLO8.

Jay can hold his own, that's for sure. I'll keep buying 5% as long as he keeps playing.

I don't believe this counts Tony's latest cash.
I'm in for 5% of Jay every year too, looking forward to next year!

They left out some nice scores made at Indian casino tournaments. Let's just say it would greatly increase those numbers (looks like 250K). :wink:
And I rarely played more than 15 or 20 tournaments in a year. I'm very much a "semi-pro." The real pros are playing 100 or more tourneys yearly.
One of these days I will get hot in the Main Event. Let me just make the money and then see what happens. My goal is to be the oldest winner! :)
