    I’ve seen lads, more than once, check the river with the stone cold nuts when last to act.

    The explanation: “Sure i knew he wasn’t going to call”

    Didn’t understand that it was illegal (or at least deeply unethical) at all.

      I agree with everyone saying this but seeing mad stuff happen in a 1-2 game is a little different from seeing it happen in a 270k pot.

      Doug gives his take on the hand.

        Is that just not something like 2-4 in their parlance though?

        As in not much above 1-2 in equivalence.

          In the games you see with the billionaires throwing around money you can draw parallels I suppose. She was playing 100 dollar tournaments less than a year ago. She is getting coaching to get better and is backed in the game. I have to imagine 270k is a massive amount of money to her. Calling off 100k as opposed to someone calling off 100 dollars for the LOL's seems quite different.

          I mean maybe she has found some sort of sugar daddy and no longer cares about money. Doug said in the video above that she is romantically involved with the guy at the table who is stalking her and he is married.

          Edit - I see he has taken the video down probably after people told him he should not be leaking that last bit of info.

            Quite the controversy in racing today when Soumillon, one the most accomplished and senior jockeys in the game elbowed Rossa Ryan off his mount in a race in France, it looks terrible and it's very hard to see any mitigating circumstances, maybe that it looks such an outlandish OTT shove that it could be put down to absolute brain fart

            Ryan was lucky to walk away and Soumillon got a 2 month ban but the consensus appears to be that but if he hadn't walked away the ban would have been much more with suggestions that it could of been as even have led to criminal charges.

            Here he apologises and IMO plays it as if he thinks it was just one of things that happens. I'm inclined to think that given he admits to using his elbow something like 6 months or a year off would have been more appropriate.

                The wan with the big tittys was allegedly getting slammed by a dude with a cowboy hat who also potentially sending her some poker info somehow . Perhaps through a clever wrist device . Using this info she was able to call with Jack SHIT for more money that 10 boob jobs would cost. Cowboy hat guy is married so probably not how he wants the investigation to go. So there it looks like there is some cheating going on just not sure which type

                    If you're around Mountjoy Square / O'Connell Street area tomorrow keep an eye out for Brazilians trekking up to vote in their presendential elections from 8am-5pm.

                    Anyone wearing a yellow Brazilian football jersey will be supporting Bolsonaro and the people wearing red of some sort will be supporting Lula.

                    There were 10k additional Brazilians registered with the Dublin embassy this year to vote. They've only 6 booths for voting but they're all electronic. Voting takes seconds to push the button. A little longer to verify your identity and sign in but they'll blitz through the numbers in a very un-Brazilian manner devoid of the typical beuracracy. Ireland, take note of the recounts lasting 1 week to get Robert Troy et al in the door.....

                    Results will probably be announced by 10pm tomorrow night. If the polls are accurate there's a good chance Lula can be elected in round 1 with 50% + 1 vote majority needed. Anything less and there will be a direct run off in 2-3 weeks with the top 2 candidates.

                    Fingers crossed Lula will do the business. There's still a shadow cast over his party (PT) from the operation car wash scandal. However the level of corruption in politics in Brazil is endemic at all levels and no politocal party escapes this.

                    Bolsonaro is lucky that he's been able to strangle all attempts to impeach him (like trump) and not have a any number of scandals blow up in his face. He stands for absolutely nothing other himself and dictatorship aligned far right ideology. That is even being generous to a particularly odious man. He even literally refers to himself as imbrochavel: omni-erect/anti-impotent.

                    The vote won't even be purely for Lula. It will be as much of a 2 fingers to the Bolsonaro term of misinformation, damaging the amazon, marginalising minorities, land grabbing of indigenous territories and pointing fingers at everyone else for his incompetence.

                      Not a good look.
                      5,500 RuSSian troops in Lyman with the options being:

                      2. Die
                      Be interesting to see how many of them choose option 2 and sacrifice themselves for the Mad Tsar in the Kremlin.
                      Quite the PR buzzkill for the fascists after yesterday's nonsense.

                          There doesn't seem to be any reasonable logic to her play which led me to assume that she simply panicked when he shoved over her click-back raise on the turn & the all-in call was a brain fart.
                          Maybe mis-read her hand and thought she had bottom pair to catch a semi bluff.

                          What truly baffles me is handing
                          back his money after the hand is over!
                          Who amongst us would do that after making one of the most insane plays
                          in the history of televised poker?
                          Surely we'd soak up the glory
                          and ride that wave all the way to the beach.

                            I dated a girl who had one of those laughs, the hee haw one! It wasn't really a thing until we went to see Sonny Condell play a late night gig night in Earlsfort Terrace, this is so long ago it was still UCD. Sonny is quite a funny guy and started off in great form that night but after a while it got a bit surreal when her cackle was dominating the response he was getting from a probably 90% stoned crowd, then he started making an effort not to be funny and that set the crowd giggling and then she'd start heehawing uncontrollably again and that got the whole crowd into hysterics... mad night!

                              He's a lucky lucky man. If Rossa has sustained any kind of injury he'd have been gone for a year minimum. Negligence suit would have cost him a few quid too.

                                Looks to be a fairly nice overlay in the bonnington for anyone in that area. Killarney maybe making a dent.

                                  Would it be racist to quote tweet this and simply say 'Quasi Kwarteng'

                                    Ah, the quasi thing has been done to death. Though I did like this blast from the past

                                          The Mirror published a pic of a different Black guy.

                                          Quasi means 'apparently, but not really'

                                          Quasi is pretty much a different spelling for Kwasi.

                                            I just don't think there's a situation more suited to calling him Quasi Kwarteng.

                                            Funny, I was thinking of tweeting something along those lines last night but chickened out.

                                            Was gonna say something like..

                                            'Quasi Kwarteng would make a great Halloween costume if it wasn't for the Blackface'

                                              Well, it aint racist

                                              But if a joke needs to be explained so thoroughly it probably isn’t great

                                              Then again, i’m a long way through a bottle of gin so it’s more than likely me

Left the queue before we had to jump for lunch with friends as it wasn't too bad. Came back and there's more than double the crowd now, probably 3hrs+ to get through. Which is past the time the polls close ​​​​​​.

Left the queue before we had to jump for lunch with friends as it wasn't too bad. Came back and there's more than double the crowd now, probably 3hrs+ to get through. Which is past the time the polls close ​​​​​​.

                                                                            As it happened we were doubled back around to entrance again and one of the volunteers started pulling people from the crowd based on their section numbers (16 different sections to match the number of voting machines). One of the near empty sections matched hers so she got swept in with that group well ahead of schedule. Could have had double the machines and a bigger venue as well as splitting the queue to sections earlier. Tbh I don't think they anticipated the turnout or had near enough volunteers. Similar stories in Amsterdam and elsewhere.

                                                                            Were you sponsoring some colleagues through work or were they mates of yours?
