At times I may come on too strong. It's a weakness. But, I speak from
a REAL PRO POKER PLAYER perspective. We are the old guys, the old
breed. We all knew each other for decades. Those who've been around
RGP long enough, saw how the pros you know responded to me. It wasn't
like we were strangers. It wasn't like there wasn't respect for the
others.

Now we have a Moneymaker. Yes, he won the WSOP Main event. However,
among true professionals, players like this are a joke. If this guy
were to play people heads-up, the line would be miles long, most of
which would be names you'd never heard of.

People win lotteries every week. Numerous people who win these
lotteries go broke.

Word on the street is Moneymaker is already broke, but with the
unusual name, he'll be around a while promoting.

Cash players are always there and just kep going and going. Tourney
players soon evaporate, as tournament champions start believeing their
promos and start playing cash games. Here they find out how well they
play.

They line up 100 deep to play him on stars. They taunt moneymaker
endlessly while playing him, too, calling a him a donkey and telling
to keep his accountant job.

If he can get suckers to buy, then he IS a genius.

Why hold this against him? What's wrong with leveraging one's fame
for cash when the opportunity falls out of the sky?

Absolutely, he's probably got a PR team marketing the hell out of his name
as long as he can. Who wouldn't? It has little to do with his actual
poker skills.

Yup and there he is again tonight, grinding it out at PS. If they think
he's so terrible, get in line to play him.

Moneymaker repeatedly tried to sell everyone on the idea of him being
a genius. Not only did he write a book, but he also had articles
written about him where he detailed how he'd sell his tutoring skills
to various business groups upon which they'd play for money
afterwards.

You must have. He had some promotions, one being with Playboy Magazine
at Morongo in the last couple of years, where you paid $5,000, got to
play with Moneymaker, gets his tips on winning in poker and also have
the Playboy bunnies around. There was also a tourney involved, but it
was definetly a promo for Moneymaker by Playboy and Morongo.

Thanks a lot. Nobody here realized Moneymaker was anything shy of a
fucking genius. We really needed you to point that out.
