    Life Updates of Poster's Past

    Sometimes I think about early posters and what they are doing now.

    2 that come to mind are Empiremaker and that Hairy dude the Weiss shamed, can't remember his name.

    Of course Vwls life update would be grand.

    Pretty sure Vegas sold his weed company or got bought out and is wth a new organic flower company.

    Would love to hear the story on that one.

    I think Esoterix died years ago. If he was the dude that had something to do with poker media and eating fries in the bed.

    Felon appeared to be an actual felon. He ended up doing time for stealing scratch off tickets and selling them to illegal immigrants. After that dunno. His brother might still be around the forums.

    BDP sometimes drops by and Weiss likely got his shit together. Dunno.

    It's not clear why Vwls left. She was a radio co-host here in 2012 (and did a good job), but then had to "spend time with her family", quit radio, and quit the site not too long after.

    She made a brief appearance on Twitter a few years ago when delaware died.

    We did not have any kind of falling out. The reason for her departure from these forums remains unclear to me.

    Yes, es0terix died over 10 years ago. He was only 26, I believe. He was a nice guy. Was very sad when that happened. I visited him in the hospital in Vegas shortly before he passed. However, he didn't die in the hospital. He went back home, seemed to be living normally for a short time, and then abruptly died. He did have a lot of health problems. (He was the guy who ate fries on the bed, by the way.)

    Macon Marc, last I heard, was living with a long-term girlfriend he met about 11 years ago. If you remember, he had a brief romance with Vwls, which didn't work out due to the massive age difference (I believe she was 15 years older). However, he followed it up with another relationship with an older woman -- one my age -- who was about 8 years older. (I believe Vwls is 7 years older than me.)

    That relationship stuck around, and he moved in with her. I believe she was from a rich family, though she didn't have a lot of money herself. I saw him occasoinally at Bellagio for some years after that, but I haven't seen him in quite some time. I heard that they're still together, but who knows.

    Macon actually deserved better during the poker boom. He was a decent limit holdem player, but for whatever reason, he just couldn't run up a bankroll. Every time he won some money, he would lose and crash back down again. I think he just didn't have any extended period of rungood to build enough of a cushion to comfortably play midstakes.

    Interestingly, he did have a shot at big tournament money at the WSOP, as he was down to the final 17 in a $1500 WSOP NL event in 2006. Micon had half of him and was rooting Marc on big time. Short stacked, it folded to Marc's SB, and he saw T9o. The BB snapped him off with A5o, and despite a 9 flopping, an ace turned, and that was that. Marc went out 17th with an unexciting payday of $3953, and he had to give half of it to Micon. The name of that jerk who knocked him out and crushed his dreams? That was some guy named Todd Witteles, who went on to finish 4th. Todd was such a fish that he still hasn't eclipsed that 4th place in his 13 years of playing the WSOP since: https://pokerdb.thehendonmob.com/event.php?a=r&n=15860

    There is an Empiremaker2 who plays DFS, mostly double ups. One of those guys that plays like 100 tourneys/night, so I guess a pro. I dunno if it is the same guy though. Empiremaker was a pretty popular racehorse, so it could of course just be another guy who named himself after the horse. Charder and Alan Kessler are 2 other guys from Neverwinpoker whose name pops up a lot in DFS tourneys, although I don't know for sure if it is the real guys, although I guess it probably is.

    Same guy, crushed NL poker during the boom. Turned to sportsbetting and DFS and is one of the best DFS guys out there and makes large sports bet wagers and seems to crush.

    He gave me a 2k freeroll on my weight loss bet
