"Phil Ivey quits poker": Did you fall for it?

My friend got secretly married on April 1st ... nobody knew it except he and his wife...
But they had told all theirfriends they were gonna have a party that night.. And during that party they suddenly told every1 they got married and it was a wedding party instead of a regular party : ))
Nobody believed it at first since it was April 1st : DD

And I was gonna move to Vegas and take over the high-stakes scene. Now my plans are foiled because Ivey remains. One day. One day.

I just couldn't believe that someone as well known and skilled as him would quit. You see him all the time on the TV shows and it just wasn't logical for something like this to be true. I'm pretty sure Phil will be playing poker into his late 70's, just like Doyle Tongue

April fools' day winners

Below are the top 3 pranks that have been awarded with 100 mob points each! Thanks to everyone who shared their pranks! /Thomas MOB ADMIN

1. "We organized a tombola (I don't know that's the right word it's somekind of local lottery where you can win some prizes) at our local soccer club. The trick was that we arranged a special first prize being a first class date with a nerdy girl known as weird Wendy . The winner, who appeared to be one of my mates, totally freaked out when he "cashed" his prize. Everyone went hilarious went Wendy wanted a kiss but then he was told it was all a joke. Oh and Wendy had a drink from the house for her wonderfull performance" - jeffke92

2. "I got up early and put a nice thin layer of vaseline on the toilet seat for April fools day and watched my friend go for a wild ride when she sat down on it.She woke up quickly!!" - leaf64

3. "i told all my friends that gas was .33 instead of 3.33 that they were doing it for customer appreciation day .... all of them were like hey we need to go fill up before they ran out ... they called me when they got there and saw the price didnt change and was like u ass . i said aprl fools!!!" - ischeckgood
