    Eating 1000's of calorie pizzas by himself, staying up til past 7am for the benefit of the shadowy truants of the poker world...I for one am glad to see that Druff is acting more and more like himself each and every day.

    By the way, it's getting close to noon East Coast time, show is still not up...did you finally fall asleep while trying to stay awake puting the show online?

    EDIT: before I posted this...there it is...

    EDIT 2: I see there is not one, but two restaurant fail/complaint stories. By God, you're home Druff.

    Rio still a shithole.

    If Caesars ever sells the Rio Hotel, they will need hundreds of millions of dollars to make it into a modern hotel.

    Moving the WSOP to the Las Vegas strip is a good idea but it should move to Caesar's Palace.

    Not Harrah's, Flamingo and the Linq, those are shit Las Vegas strip hotels.

    No wonder Caesars/Rio/WSOP treats their players like shit.

    You know I like you man, but your shake story is probably the most embarrassing thing (if not top 5) you've ever shared. How do you not see how this isn't healthy? You're arguing for a fucking bullshit shake and trying to get people fired when you don't get 1 over a fucking burger man... come on.

    Just to clarify I'm not saying their mistakes didn't warrant you saying something, I'm saying the way you handled it was wrong and probably is one of the underlying reasons of your stress.

    If I was in the right, and if I didn't create a scene (which I didn't), how was the story embarrassing?

    I got stuck waiting for 30 minutes for a lol fast food burger when they fucked it up not once but TWICE, and the bitchy manager seemed to be giving me an attitude as if them making my food totally wrong was my problem.

    So I asked for a shake while I waited for it to be made a second time, and they got belligerent and nasty with me about it.

    Manager straight up told me that it's "tough luck" on me that it got made wrong twice, and that I "deserved nothing". I was nastily told, "Take your food and go home."

    There's no way I would try to get fast food employees fired for just making a burger wrong, but this was really nasty and disrespectful. Also, aside from that, everyone there is totally incompetent and the place is chaos.

    This is from Casey Carroll, whose friend was at Smashburger at the same time as me:

    BTW now that 10.5 months have passed since my problems in 2018, I have a lot more clarity as to what caused the psychological issues.

    It wasn't poker, gambling, fighting with customer service, or getting into arguments with trolls online.

    It was most likely a combination of a bad reaction to Nexium, a cold-turkey cessation of my daily caffeine intake, sleep deprivation, and the stress of feeling like I was choking every time I would lie down. Saying that arguing with fast food employees was what made last year's issues happen is just straight up false.

    If that were true, this would have happened decades ago, not shown up suddenly at age 46.

    As you can hear on radio, I've almost completely reversed what happened (psychologically, at least), and am almost all the way back to where I was before all of that started.

    Found it a little strange that you see explaining 2-7 triple draw rules in 2019. Poker boom was over a decade ago, how do people not know the rules yet?

    Some listeners are very casual players or non-players.

    Others have only stuck to holdem and haven't even attempted to understand the other games. In fact, 2-7 games rarely spread anywhere as a standalone game cash-wise.

    Re the Aria running private games in their poker room: Perhaps the poker pros who observe this and are excluded from the games should out the poker pros who are colluding with the Aria poker reoom management to poach those fish. Iím guessing that they know who those poachers are, and if those games arenít open for the public, it is reasonable to roil the water to try to scare away the fish.
