Posted on Wednesday, January 25, 2012 by "T".
Tony G is a well-known loudmouth in the poker community. When he's not busy trash talking someone at the poker table, he (and many other poker players) likes to bet money on crazy stuff.

I looked for this on video but couldn’t find it. Can´t understand how did she fell. I don’t know how to ride a unicycle, but if she had lessons with unicycle pros, if she had time to practice, if she didn’t had to turn around the poker table with the bike but only go forward for some meters, how did she fell? Was it the pressure that made her fall? Having so much attention and the thought about the money prize? About the new possible winner, maybe he will launch some new tourney on his room to share this prize.

How cant you learn to ride a unicycle when you got several DAYS of training with pros ??!! I tried one once and i can tell you you dont need days of practice to go for a straight line ...

I already saw the vid on another poker blog, many like tony g's talking and side bets but personally i think they don't belong to the world of poker pros...

It's just a personal idea.

tony g is as always the pro of self marketing- this is the main lesson we should learn from him, as for melanie- i do not understand why the hell do you take lessons with the pros and end up failing- what the hell are those lessons for? just a waste of time and money imo. gonna ask tony maybe he will offer a similar deal to me?
