The last time I played in a PokerStars event, I severely bad beated Sean. I felt really bad but it happens. After I did it, some clown/observer kept heckling me about the hand. He kept it up for awhile. Soon he found out I was Dr. Pauly's brother and he started to apologize and be nice to me. So why be a rude asshole and then change your attitude when you find out who I am. It's one thing to rib someone if you know them. I could deal with a few comments but not repeated comments when you're not even at the table. Too many people go over board with their smart comments. Treat everyone the same, don't be a jerkoff and show some class. Remember, this is supposed to be fun too. It's pretty easy to be a tough guy online. In person is another. Later on, I got seated at his table. lol. That was interesting to say the least. So let's have some fun and see who can win another seat. Good luck everyone!!

Yeah I remember that incident. I wasn't impressed with how he treated you.

Derek ... I've posted the below on my own blog as well.


Update: I owe an apology to Derek, who is a fine young player. Some of the comments I made during this tournament were taken as a personal affront. Sometimes, my humor doesn't come across as well in written form as it would if I was speaking to the person. I made comments along the lines of "How can you lose now?" Derek jumped out to a tremendous lead during the very early stages of the tournament, putting bad river beats not just on me, but on several other players.

My comments ... in retrostpect, could easily have been taken as derogatory, and were. They were meant in the spirit of fun (it's not at all uncommon for the assembled blogger/railbirds to poke fun at each other). But, as some of these bloggers don't know me very well, some of the things I said could have seemed mean. So Derek ... I apologize. I know if we ever do meet in person, you'll come to quickly realize that I'm not the tough guy you think I am trying to be. I'm just a wise-crack who should know by now that a text medium doesn't lend itself to that type of humor.
