Re: Alan Boston does podcast with Chad Millman

What bus did JK throw you under?

And it's nice that you went to a good school, and have Big Time friends--but what does Joe Girardi have to do with Alan Boston?

And another thing, I'm sure you guys can both read and both do math. So it seems precious to be nitting it up along those lines. You guys no longer have to look at each others SAT scores to define each other or yourselves, you have careers.

Back to the thread's title character, Do you think Kenny went after Boston on that Winning Wednesday's broadcast because you passed on gossip and ill feelings about him? I think I remember him saying something about conducting the attack on behalf of a friend, and seeing how intent you still are on running an expos? got me to wondering if that friend was you.
It really is amazing how many jealous people are out there...

Re: Alan Boston does podcast with Chad Millman

I don't have no idea about his poker game, but he DEFINTELY knows his College hoops... I can remember when him an Oscar were working together with the College hoops before Oscar passed away. Oscar knew College hoops just like Alan if not better... I remember one night I was in Las Vegas at the Mirage and Oscar was shooting dice and he was playing so high that they had it roped off, but I was still able to stand on the side of him and sweat, I never seen no one play as high as him as a gambler...

Re: Alan Boston does podcast with Chad Millman

again i ask you why didn't you step up the day he made the lady dealer cry?

its weak to attack the man over the internet when you could have done it in person if you really felt strongly about the way he treated a women and you must as you seem to bring it up every chance you get.

He did win in the offices I worked at, but NEVER EVER was he an ORIGINATOR, and it isn't too many WISEGUYS out there that I didn't cater to...

Re: Alan Boston does podcast with Chad Millman

There were 8 others at that poker table. And we were ALL pussies not to remove Boston from that game.

AS for originating.....not necessary until about 2005 to make a nice living.

NOW, it is pretty mandatory. So, when you see bets like NWU/Vandy UN 45-108 (a game that hasn't seen ANY action on the total) and I make it 41, it's time to fire..........

Fezzik, who are you trying to convince that you were an originator at onetime? never in this world, maybe you originated the people you grew up with, but noway in hell were you ever an originator offshore, I'm sorry I know all of them, and you can take that to the bank........

He picks off slow moving sports books.

And has had luck with the stale (contest) lines he enjoys playing.

high times.............what is your contest name? i would like to follow you in the contest. you are joining right? stale lines and all?

also, isn't that the goal? to get lines that are the best? or do you like laying -7.5? i did that when i was 18. i have some books you can read if needed that will educate you on what are bad numbers to lay.

Re: Alan Boston does podcast with Chad Millman

Fezzik is right about Boston's poker skills, except that I would add he isn't a great stud player, either. I've played with him a few times and he's just an average opponent. I doubt that there are any forms of the game that he's good at, tbh. No one who is really good at one form is terrible at the others. If it seems that way, reevaluate.

As for his behaviour at the table, I don't remember anything specifically horrible, but he was antsy and angry and seemed like the kind of guy who would blow up. When you've been playing as long as I have you can tell the powder kegs pretty easily. He does explode online, apparently. Check twoplustwo for evidence.

Besides showing himself to be of poor character, such behaviour is also a sign of poor poker skills. It's one of the best signs, in fact. No one who understands the game gets mad at dealers or opponents. Ever. So if you're playing with a guy who is berating someone, rest assured he's almost certainly a losing player. And yes, Hellmuth is that. If you don't know Hellmuth is a poor player, you're a poor player.

I know this is difficult for outsiders to understand. It's difficult for many regular poker players to understand, too. But all good players do understand. Can you imagine PI, PA, durrr, Juanda, OMGClayAiken or others acting like that? It NEVER happens. No true pro EVER mistreats a dealer. Dealers are neutral, they're irrelevant, and if you're still blaming them for anything, you just fundamentally don't understand the game.

As for standing up to someone, like Fezzik suggests he should have done at the table ... for the first few years or so of playing, I'd never say anything, either. I didn't think it was my place. Now, yeah, I understand that it's in my self-interest to protect dealers or players from abuse. It isnt a matter of standing up to a guy. Violence is extremely unlikely to break out in a casino environment. It's simply a matter or recognizing that yes, it's every player's job to oppose abuse. The game goes better, the players are happier, the profits are higher, the dealers you see every day are happier, the world is a better place. No need to get macho. Just call the floor over and let the floor handle it. Of course a well-trained dealer would have called the floor over right away herself, but dealers often reluctant to do that.

And LOL in advance at anyone responding to this suggesting I'm a Fezzik nuthugger. I was in LVAsports for a month. Left because I couldn't stand the censorship.
