I bet you didn't "lol" when he called. I bet you thought "Oh fuck".

haha good one.

I think Tony g is entertaining, I guess i'm the only one that finds him amusing. I have to admit though, in that clip he was way out of line and that rant was very tasteless.

I can never tell whether or not Tony G is acting. With Phil Hellmuth, you know that it's genuine - he's a big baby who gets so wound up by the whole thing that he can't help himself. I'm never sure with Tony G, it seems such a big act. If he isn't acting, then my amusement doesn't last very long.

Even if he is acting, i still felt like he went way over the line. Huge respect for the Russian who took the moral highground and just sat there letting him look like an asshole.

I'm Australian, and I hate Tony G

Actually I did. Cards are flipped before you see the flop on betsafe

Villain in this hand annoyed me and I let that influence my decision on how to play the hand (obv not good). I didn't think he would call with KJ tho.


How can anybody possibly hate on Tony G?

On the party poker premier league TV show he seemed like a decent enough guy. Not exactly Neighbour Of The Year material, but less of a complete twat than he seems abusing that Russian.

I have seen T G play a couple of times (TV) , and this was the only time I came away with the feeling that he is just a douche. I thought he was abrasive before, now I know he is just a dick.

You guys have to keep in mind that Tony G is part Lithuanian, and Russia occupied Lithuania not long ago, so that´s probably one reason why he went overboard. If anyone find themselves at a table with Tony G and he tries to make you tilt, just keep repeating that he is Russian ("will you make another Russian call?", "go home to Russia", "do you live in Moscow?", etc.) and he should tilt.

He just acts like a fool to get on TV, he's like one of those celebrities from Big Brother. Always acting like a fool or a twat, and in my opinion he's a rubbish player from what I've seen in the Party Poker league TV show.

am i the only one who thinks the reason he was acting like a bitch was because he wanted to tilt the other players at the table?

not that it justifies his actions...
