Default Stupak



Bob Stupak has been playing in a big NL game the last few nights at the Commerce. Not sure what the blinds were, but some players had over $100k in front of them. The game was triple draw lowball. Some of the other players were Lee Salem, Johnny Chan, Robert Oppenheimer, Mike Wattel. Sorry for any spelling mistakes.

"Can Stupak play or is he fishy?"


I remember a few years ago, the E! channel (or some phony-baloney "network" like that) was doing a show about the WSOP. They featured a heads-up, $100,000 NLHE freezeout between Stupak, and defending WSOP champ Russ Hamilton. We had this on in the sportsbook.


"I'll give you Stupak at +300," I offered one of the clerks.


"No, YOU take Stupak! You can have +400!"


We never made the bet, because neither of us wanted to back Bob.


Bob got him.


As Hamilton walked off, looking like he just got kicked in the gut (don't we all make that face after a crushing loss at the tables?), the E! crew stuck a microphone in his face. Russ tried to let it roll off his back, but had a tough time of it.


"Oh, well," he said. "You don't get paid by the day in this job, you get paid by the year, or the month."


Then he added, somberly, "This ain't gonna be good month."


Bobby


(Apologies to all if I didn't get the quotes exactly right.)

I think that the fact that they are only spreading this game because Bob is in town should tell you something. One of the players told me he won $100K one night, most of it from Bob.

Bob loves to gamble big and he thinks that his experience plus his lack of caring about the big money overcomes his disadvantage in poker skills. I don't know, you be the judge. He rarely plays though so its hard to say where he would stand. I have heard in the past when he had a game going here they actually attracted real fish because they were playing high enough and Bob rounded up a couple of huge poker names to play. Bob won quite a bit in that game with one guy (biggest fish) supposedly admitting he hadn't played 7 stud without wild cards in 10 years. Now if that doesn't sound like a fish nothing does!

He's the one that put up the Stratosphere. I don't think he owns it anymore. He's a big gambler, but I don't know that he is that great of a poker player.

Bob Stupak used to own Vegas World now the Stratosphere. He is a BIIIGGGGG gambler who once bet $1Million in a Larry Holmes fight which he won. I don't know how good he is as a poker player though.
