But on Sept 22 2008 you announced to the world...

Picked up 20,000 shares this morning with a price spread of $4.68 to $4.73.
Now we sit back and watch what happens.
If it does not make $15 you all can laugh at me.
BTW just as a foot note: 1/6 of 94 is over 15 for those 1/6 boys which I
am not one of.
Footnote: I am really looking for $30

_____________________________________

This approximately 94,000 dollar investment is now worth today at the
closing price or .55 cents a share, 11,800.

This represents an 82,200 dollar loss or an ROI of -86%.

I am pretty sure Doggy can do better at poker than this. And while we
haven't waited a year, I am pretty sure that we can safely say that the
investment was a dog.

And it isn't at all clear that this is a good investment, yet if ever.
AIG may end up selling every asset it has, pays back what it can, and
then leave the outstanding shareholders penny-less as it declares
bankruptcy. Hard to imagine that the stock goes up 800% from here to
get Arlo back to par.

Maybe we can get Arlo a special bailout fund. Or we can bet red three
times, or maybe double up 3 times at that no-limit game.

I think Arlo makes these investments and other purchases like his 60%
discounted wall in his mind.

I don't know Arlo from back when, only the past three or four years that I
have been here, but it doesn't add up for me that he spends all this money
in the market, plans poker trips to play $150 - $300 limits and then
frequents $.10/$.25 PLO on stars.

Then again, I have been wrong a couple thousand times in my life.

Just for the record: I play 5-10 to 15-30 limit Oh/l online and if I feel
like screwing around I will play the penny games also Jody plays the
account and she nevr playsa higher than .10 .25.

I would never risk much online because is far from real live poker. SO
much info is missing.
As far as my wall goes 99% missed what I was saying. The point was if you
have cash get what you want now.

I don't have any problem believing it. My income is probably higher than
95% of RGP. I have played online as high as $10/$20 limit and $2/$4 NL.
When the funding law passed I cashed in my online bankroll except for
$500. Right now I am learning PLO so I started at 1/2 and am now playing
5/10.

That's because you're an idiot.

It's probably not.

If your income is in the top 5% nationally then it'sprobably in the top
40% of rgp'ers.

Perhaps, but that doesn't mean that people with money don't play stakes
that effectively meaningless to them financially.

Hahaha, sure, 40% of RGPers have an income >$100K let alone in the top 5%.

> Arlo is not learning PLO

True, but the fact that he plays low stakes online doesn't mean he doesn't
have the money it appears that he does.

Are you counting "posters", or "posters' parents"?

Good question.

If bookworm lives with his momma I think we'll count individual income, if
not we'll count household income.

Gotta go with the household income here, Vanna. However, there is only one
income in my household and it is mine.

it is awful easy to lurk, and watch 50 people waiting for one or two to
make an error , which you then are so kind as to point out ... so easy

and cheap and cowardly .


Jason,you,
sir, are much, much stupider than FangBanger.
