Your EV does 'Technically' drop, but what you are forgeting which is the very point that this is a tournament, and it's about survival, not a ring game where you can just reach into your pocket and keep playing.

Of COURSE you're allowed characters from Sesame Street. They're muppets, aren't they? Just muppets guesting on a different show.
In a tournament, certainly Animal's aggression would be an advantage. But in a ring game, I think I would favour the statistical, scientific approach of Doctor Bunsen Honeydew. And poor Beaker would invariably be the victim.
Kermit would probably do his money every week, at least for the first couple of years. As newcomers to the Vic invariably find, it's not easy being green.

Any online player will tell you that the most aggressive and fearsome opponents are all Scandinavian - Mr Bowl, jpizza, Erik123 etc. The Swedish Chef is a lock...

BORK! BORK! BORK!

I emulated Cookie Monster for years. Look where it got me. Two weeks of the Atkins diet has only undone a quarter of the damage.

: Having given this considerable thought I think the aggression of Animal would
: win the day.

I thought of him, but his style is surely "maniac", plus being a drummer he can't count past four which could be a significant disadvantage when calculating outs. If he hit some good cards at vital junctures, maybe, but I'd need at least 50-1 to back him.

All true. I decided to pick out only the facts that suited my reply. With such selective skills, I could write for the Observer, no?

Now, I realise some of you don't have proper jobs, but the amount of knowledge of a childrens TV show on display here today is simply staggering.

I don't know if I'm more impressed that some of you must surely have watched it in their teens when it first came out, or that people can remember the characters twenty years after they last saw it.... Or is this the guilty secret of the UK poker scene? 50 No Limit freezeout tournaments followed by six hour Sesamae Street binges?

Have you no idea of the genius that went into that show? I knew that great minds were at work when I saw a muppet four-piece band perform 'Hey Cookie' to the tune of Hey Jude, for the benefit of Cookie Monster. They had gone to the trouble of making the bass player (i.e. Paul) left handed.

They also had a ewe with a fringe named Meryl who talks about her acting career in Hollywood. It took me a while to realise that she is of course Meryl Sheep.

I can't tell yet if I'm reassured by your sensible reasoning for watching muppet shows, or if I'm forming the opinion that I should run, RUN FOR THE HILLS if I bump into you in a dark alleyway...
