Hey vic,....Do you still want to have a little side bet on the Full Tilt leaderboard...? How much would you like to bet...? I'm thinking $5 kinda thing... Smile

You were always way ahead of me chip-wise in the PP tourneys,...but I would have beaten you if I had those 8 days worth of tourneys back due to late registration to PP...


Here's a little story to set the mood...! I'm sure you've heard this Aesop's Fable in your childhood...! There was also a Bugs Bunny catoon spin-off I think it was....


Aesop's The Tortoise And The Hare:

Once upon a time there was a hare who, boasting how he could run faster than anyone else, was forever teasing tortoise for its slowness. Then one day, the irate tortoise answered back: “Who do you think you are? There’s no denying you’re swift, but even you can be beaten!” The hare squealed with laughter.

“Beaten in a race? By whom? Not you, surely! I bet there’s nobody in the world that can win against me, I’m so speedy. Now, why don’t you try?”

Annoyed by such bragging, the tortoise accepted the challenge. A course was planned, and the next day at dawn they stood at the starting line. The hare yawned sleepily as the meek tortoise trudged slowly off. When the hare saw how painfully slow his rival was, he decided, half asleep on his feet, to have a quick nap. “Take your time!” he said. “I’ll have forty winks and catch up with you in a minute.”

The hare woke with a start from a fitful sleep and gazed round, looking for the tortoise. But the creature was only a short distance away, having barely covered a third of the course. Breathing a sigh of relief, the hare decided he might as well have breakfast too, and off he went to munch some cabbages he had noticed in a nearby field. But the heavy meal and the hot sun made his eyelids droop.

With a careless glance at the tortoise, now halfway along the course, he decided to have another snooze before flashing past the winning post. And smiling at the thought of the look on the tortoise’s face when it saw the hare speed by, he fell fast asleep and was soon snoring happily.

The sun started to sink, below the horizon, and the tortoise, who had been plodding towards the winning post since morning, was scarcely a yard from the finish. At that very point, the hare woke with a jolt. He could see the tortoise a speck in the distance and away he dashed. He leapt and bounded at a great rate, his tongue lolling, and gasping for breath. Just a little more and he’d be first at the finish. But the hare’s last leap was just too late, for the tortoise had beaten him to the winning post.

Poor hare! Tired and in disgrace, he slumped down beside the tortoise who was silently smiling at him.

“Slowly does it every time!” he said.

Okay, $5 sounds good...! Just a 'little' something to make it interesting.

I keep a healthy balance in PS, FT, and now PP,...so if I lose out, I could transfer you $5 from either one you want,... Doesn't matter to me the other way around if I should win.... $5 from any of the 3 above accounts you have $5 in would be fine...!

...So when I finish ahead of you,...the $5 you WILL be paying me Aww crap!will be like the cherry on top, or the icing on the cake... Big Smile<heheeee... Thumbs Up CHING Dollar

Haha love the banter. Also tortoise and hare caught my attention, that's why I am posting here to check up what is the craze with the turtles and what not! By the way love the story between the hare and the tortoise and how the tortoise always win.

I agree, if you keep persevering in poker you will becomes a winning player someday compare to somebody who is riding an upswing and gives up on the first sign for an obstacle. Cheers nice long story good luck and have fun!

When I got to the final table,...my first thought was...'Mmmm....I wonder if vic is here...?' A quick scan around the table revealed you and you MONSTER stack...lol...

Yo Vic....!

Looks like I'll be paying you $5 as we wagered... Big Smile

I was waiting for the final leaderboard results to show,...but I'm pretty sure you clobbered me... Confused

Until about the final 10 days I was ahead of you by about 2.55 points,...then you came outta NOWHERE and got about 3 or 4 final tables..... Shock

I was going to offer you another go at $5,....but I see you took one down last night...!!! THEN went really deep again today,.....so the jump you got on me is pretty significant.... If I can get an approximately equal score in the next little while,...maybe we can bet another $5

I'll probably send you the $5 by player transfer at Full Tilt.... Sound good...?

Congratzzzzz to Vic for winning our bet and making the money on the board,....and to everyone else who was playing the leaderboard and won a tic or $$$...!!! Big Smile Thumbs Up

I finished about 45 or so..... Sleepy

Hi, everybody.

If a little to modify Aesop's fable and to tell an old Jewish joke which essence in volume "To Earn One Million Dollars It Is Possible to Sell Brilliants and It Is Possible to Sell Laces to Footwear". For one transaction with brilliants it is possible to earn a huge a lot of money and on laces to footwear this money is earned very slowly, but it is almost imperceptible for people around.

And still there is at us such proverb "More haste less speed"

All good day and good luck.

Dollar Worship Dollar
