Watch this video, Armenian Mike trys to overbet bluff shove on the river, gets snapped off then claims he was "just joking" What a fucking scumbag.

To make matters worse, the useless floor puts the decision on the other player in the hand, which is uncomfortable to say the least. Like, make a fucking decision and enforce it (and the correct decision is that Armenian Mike loses all those chips)

More than likely that guy must be a huge fish for the other player to be talking about not feeling right taking the money, and they don't want to lose his long-term donations for this one-time score?

You're right on all accounts. Mike is the absolute worst player on that show on any given stream. You have to watch to even begin to understand how bad of a player he is. And to make the decision more difficult, Ryan is the stream's producer! Mike loses a few k every time he sits and also is a hothead idiot that needs his head kicked off.

Seeing Armenian Mike get stacked and tilt is my absolute favorite thing about that stream. So while he deserves to get banned, I really hope he doesn't.

That’s pretty outrageous behaviour from Armenian mike, but I’m even more shocked at the floor for not making the determination and forcing him to pay.

They even let him take the chips off the table. I wouldn’t want to play at that place, you may as well just play a home game if there is no security or rule enforcement.

Do you think this would happen if it was out on the floor of the regular casino?

Live at the Bike is not run by the Bike Casino itself. The show pays the casino for the space within the casino.

C'mon, floor.

"You bet, he called, give him the chips. If you don't like it talk to my boss, ruling is final."
i agree , he shoved his chips in middle and got insta called ...... at my home game every player knows if chips go pass the line its in.......even if its a 1/3 game and someone raises 15$ UTG an next player raises to 70 and the player after calls the 15 the 15 stays no matter if it was his mistake for not paying attention to what the bet is...... my ruling if its in..... its in....... u can't cum in a girl and all of a sudden want to take ur cum out..... sorry for the inappropriate words but it helps sum it up

I don’t even understand how a guy can stand there and say it was a joke. That’s not a joke, it’s never been a joke. It’s what you do when you’re trying to steal a pot. And I just can’t imagine what’s going on in a guy’s head when he tries to pull back his chips. I can only conclude he’s a giant asshole with no respect for himself or others.

Definitely cheating, and I can't stand Armenian Mike but if you've watched a lot of LATB, he's quite the donator in that game. I wouldn't have let it go though, guy is a total degen and there's pretty much zero risk of him not coming back.

Just rewatched the clip again. Eff that guy, I would've made sure I got every chip he had.

To clarify for everyone, Ryan ended up getting the money. After the floor put the decision on Ryan, Mike asked him if he wanted the money. Ryan responded "I don't know." Mike put his rack in front of Ryan, walked away and left.

The real confounding factor here is that the LATB table is Ryan's game, and I believe it is unraked by the casino, citation needed. Ryan is paying the casino who pays the floor staff so technically the floor is working for him. I can understand why the floor man is afraid to make an ultimate decision on a dispute in which he was involved. Yes, this is a cut and dry decision to award the chips. But this is Ryan's room and the decision has bigger implications on his business than that single pot alone.

Ryan is luck box mfer. His stream is doing well. He runs good and crushes at his own game. And whether he got the 10k or not from Stinking Face-Stuffing Mike, people are talking about this pot EVERYWHERE and I think his stream will be getting a huge bump from this publicity.

I'm glad Garrett stepped in and took over the decision making at the end and didn't force Ryan to make the call. It's a shitty spot for Ryan to be in and GMan just called it how it is.

Garrett Adelstein is quickly becoming my favorite pro player simply for how he condones himself on LATB. Art bluffed him for $50k (I think?) on the river and Garrett folded... and was legitimately proud his friend (whom he considered a bit nitty) was capable of making such a move when he found out it was a bluff after the fact.
