You're selling vintage chips from Austria?Why were people running from the game? Were the Argentinians chasing them? There’s so much missing from this post, but I already have a set of chips from Australia so I’m not interested in trading.
Because some people want to know what kind of people they are dealing with. I for one would not want to deal with a serial liar. Deals all go fine till one day you buy a $6K set and it never shows up? Play poker IRL at a table and what>>> Come on man, this story just gets more FOS as it develops. Guys running a scam game like that take you out to the woodshed if you question them. period. and if you got the money back and escaped unbeaten, who continues to "investigate"....... At some point the folks need to be told they're reading fiction, instead of all this doubling down on a story that gets more incredulous as it goes.I still don't understand why anyone cares if the story is true or
ya know @TheDuke I'm with ya there. I didn't say @Windwalker would scam anyone. I said know who you're dealing with. As for trolling, please...if you post things like this and claim they're absolutely true and double down by adding details like the ones in said story you can certainly expect to get called out. Some people meet up here in RL, this isn't some fantasy community, these are real PEOPLE. What you call trolling is simply because multiple people have asked for this fantasy to be exposed for what it is and the OP refuses to address it and skirt around it, call racism and go dark. I assume with his experience in PR he knows how to spin and ditch to make inquisitors look suspect. As for respect....... respect this community by NOT spinning yarns as absolute truth. I liked WW without him having to bolster his image and now I just question everything. You know like the boy that cried wolf. I'm no hater sir, nor a troll, I also wont let you spin me and play on or fawn because you gave away a few grand worth of chips. Does it make you such a good person because you give things away?? PLEASE..... Jeffery Epstein gave things away too....Don't know you @RivieraDanny or @Windwalker .
I'm not one of the nut huggers on this site who thinks he's a caped crusader. Nor am I a hater who needs to troll every one of his threads or post threads to troll him.
Give @Windwalker some level of decency/respect. I think he's literally given away a few grand worth of chips lately. It's not fair to insinuate that he's going to scam someone because you don't believe the account in this thread.
I hate to take this more off topic, but this response is by definition racist. See the book How to the Be An Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi. Minimizing your own mistakes and not admitting we were all raised in a racist world and being willing to face our own implicit bias is racist because it is not anti-racist. Including vehemently denying you are racist.Ok take Armenian out of it.... replace it with the term "ANYONE able to finance that size action" But never insinuate that I racially profile... EVER as I do not. Casting dispersions on ones questioners is the first method to make others doubt your inquisitor. That's not happening here....... Admit your tale got just a bit too tall and I'll still have respect.

I really appreciated @Windwalker calling this out because it did grab my attention, despite the fact it is not the topic of the thread.
LOL, you are correct but keyboard warriors never quit. They will be back or maybe follow their own advice like this from the infamous Train Wreck thread
There is, its called "Unwatch"
Is it better just to attack you aggressively aggressively?Not only is it apples and oranges, but this comment is completely unnecessary here. You have no shame do you? Don't bring that sub forum's stuff here. It's disgusting. I don't ever attack you passively aggressively, and I'd like the same respect.
Those of us with $100 family company empires are too busy with the grind to take “lunch”. Must be nice to be able to stop and smell the trees for a moment.wow, what a ride this thread was. just wasted my entire lunch hour.
Can’t think of a single poker movie other than Rounders that actually worked for the mainstream. Everything else is such shit. The Stu Ungar story is somewhat watchable. But even Rounders wasn’t easy — if you haven’t read this “oral history”, it’s well worth the time.
