How the hell was that footage from 1985? You look no different and it has a website address in it.

He references Tiger Woods, who would have been 10 at that time.

Why can't you piss off and leave the decent people of Dublin alone?? You are a shocking Omaha player, and anyone who has ever sat at a table with you will know that. I remember playing a tourney (NL) with you, and you hit your 3 rebuy max in the first four hands. You really over estimate your ability. you are still known as the hot-dog seller in dublin.

I've a good mind to go over to London and annoy the absolute bollocks out of everyone whilst I do my bankroll and tell you all about the $10 tourney I won online.

For any Paddy seriously considering this, you are an idiot! Invest your hard earned in Ciaffones or Brunsons books, and learn more from men who have actually succeeded in the game and not from a reduntant "hot dog stand at the greyhound track seller".

And don't buy any badly burned dodgey DVDs from him either.
