Default Played craps with TJ Cloutier

at Bellagio on Friday night. It was a $10 table. TJ only had about $100 on the table and all he was doing was complaining about how unlucky he is. What a degenerate gambler.

How does that make him a degenerate gambler?

(And I know TJ is reputed to have a craps problem, but this post gives no indication of anything that would resemble a degenerate gambler. And I am tired of people talking out their asses.)

I played with him at the Bellagio also. I watched him go through his cash and then talk a couple of lady friends into giving him a few hundred so he could teach them how to play. The craps dealers were cracking up.
Also played with T.J. in the 1000 nightly poker tourney. He told me that Mike Sexton sold his interest in Party Poker for about 14 million. Nice payday.

I'm surprised that his total interest was worth only $14M. And I'm also surprised he would sell out entirely. I think there's something wrong with this story.

TJ said Mike got bought out shortly before it went public.

Everyone has played craps with TJ.

Most people don't go out of their way to post sniveling remarks about his gambling problem on internet poker forums.

I would, however, like to hear Mike l.'s friend's story.

In his Championship Tournement book he mentions playing in tourneys backed by hellmuth in the early 90s. In addition you can read his profile on Barry Greensteins website.
