I’ve been recovering at home from covid for past couple weeks not doing too much, mainly bored. In the downtime I started getting some nostalgia feels of the poker golden days good times.

LP was started in Sept or Oct 2005 and I believe I probably checked this site daily from day 1 until 2013 or so when I quit poker. Those were some great times, I remember fondly and am super grateful for some of the good times I had with a lot of old LPers as we went on this adventure together. For the broodwar generation it was incredibly good fortune to be ~early 20s, right time & right place (here) when the ESPN/moneymaker/internet boom happened.

Going to just keyboard mash out some shout outs and memories, I think in roughly chronological order of when our paths crossed,

TwistedEcho (Jon), my starcraft bff (Clan VdP 4lyfe) who got me into poker with a $30 loan and told me in a 3 min MSN messenger convo how to beat SnGs and limit holdthem (all that was needed at the time). Later became a MTT herobluff+herocall monster that also liked to party more than almost all nerdy poker players. Biggest weakness in his otherwise beastly game was credit card roulette. Pictured below with Myth shortly after losing cc roulette in a LP dinner attended by quite a lot more people than in this photo, lol.




Tom (teej1985), my uni housemate. We dropped out to play poker together (actually Tom was 1st a few months ahead, and his mother blamed me for corrupting him, go figure?). My brother from another mother, we lived breathed sleeped the game together for the golden years, shared a house and battled common enemies in the stars 10/20 25/50 games. His poker career was nearly over before it began, taking degen big MTT shots with his roll. Down to last $5 in a $5 MTT and either won or came 2nd for a 4 figure score to get his start. Went on to crush very high stakes for very long. Beast

Rekrul – if you were a fan of broodwar and poker in this era there is no way Rekrul was not the top cat and you weren’t a fanboy. From TL.net grim reaper to being one of the forerunners of the bw->poker transition. If back in the day we were paper chasers just livin’ our life then it’s safe to say Rekrul paved the way for us cats to get paid pre-uigea (sorry I’ll try to stop this turning into shit). He may not have been so pleased about this, here’s an old chatlog:

Nonetheless it was a delight to witness some rekrul ownage personally beasting people on the Wynn $10/20 cash tables (some crazy games back then, people buying in $50k deep and running outrageous bluffs). Other memory highlights include railing Rekrul beast Vanessa Selbst for a bracelet in WSOP $10k hu with a bunch of LPers (including the lovable degen Raidan who beat me for a surprising amount at $100 a throw rock-paper-scissors while we were waiting for the action to start).

TOTMidiaN – my boy the best british starcraft player by a ludicrous margin. Proud to have ‘paid it forward’ what Echo did for me by loaning him some $ to get him started in poker. Another guy come to kill Dan’s EV. Lived the good life for a good nr of years in Korea and became fluent in Korean.

RiKD – good to see you still around here man. Good times in 2006 sharing Vegas rooms. I was a 21yo total life fish, I guess we all were. Bad sleep schedules, grinding online in the room, and getting up too late to go somewhere nice for dinner and settling on the default All American Bar and Grill in Rio for multiple nights in a row which was the only convenient thing open at midnight. Ugh! But funny. More good stories coming to mind I probably don’t want to share publically!

RainKhan – hilarious chap. I just cannot even think of a single good Khan story that it would be reasonable to publically repeat here.

MezmerizePlz (vvvvvvvQ) and his boy Alex – I can remember one great steak dinner we had in Dublin where we were abs pissing ourselves over one the aforementioned RainKhan stories that won’t be shared publically. Many more good times in Vegas on top.

Nazgul – super calm and smart persona in real life – though used to do 40 hour sessions to get unstuck, think he had one where he only stopped playing after coming back from some ungodly number of buyins down at 10/20stars; berated me for having a ‘spineless’ habit of quitting when I was losing and stopped playing well (or as “well” as anyone played in like 2008 – take this comment on a relative basis, this was pre-solver street poker we were playing here back in the day ????)

Daut – had many good chats (including about our favourite 3/6 stars player SOROS). Pleasure to watch his PCA win and owning Ike HU at the end with a high reliability live tell.

Mig – MTT beast, kept crushing me in sidebets. Good laughs had together in Vegas houses. Shortly after winning his bracelet, with his laid back ‘nothing special just another day in the office’ demeanor:


RaSZi – legend but basically on tilt all the time for one reason or another from what I remember of the times. Remember a particularly awkward incident when a bunch of us were housing together for Vegas in some ridiculous mansion, Lex was outside the house life tilting very hard trying to calm down with a cigarette, and Echo had the idea of lightening the mood by pranking Raszi with a water balloon to the face…… That one, it turns out, did not have the intended effect and actually went down very poorly… LOLOL

Myth – true gentleman and good guy. Introduced me to scotch, general jovial bonvivant. I am rofling myself currently at an amazing pic of him I have here at the end of a Vegas night out, that is probably again not for public sharing.

PoorUser – master of winning with ludicrous J high calldowns where it’s not even likely he beats bluffs at showdown but manages to pull it off somehow.

MiPwnYa – Ultimate bonvivant French. Moved to London near the tail-end of my poker career, we were living not too far off each other and had many great squash/badminton battles, dinners and drinks. Got some excellent life advice from my brother Quentin at the time which changed the course of my life subsequently.

locoo (small L, two Os) – winning at life in Lima, beautiful family, thanks for your hospitality when I was travelling in South America. Hope you stayed away from those crooked local live games (or found they weren’t crooked and crushed them!)

straate – had many a stars battle with this legend at the tables. Probably only LPer I’ve met for a dinner (that I wasn’t already friends with outside LP prior) after transitioning out of poker, on a business trip to SF few years back. Guy’s made his own good transition out of poker and was doing interesting stuff

longple – epic grinder, one of the guys that was becoming the new generation of beast just as I was quitting the game, had a great dinner with him in London and was very happy to see him having deserved success at the time for his hard work

Liquid`Meat (made TL & LP websites, guy was ridiculously Dutch and loves his beer)[/b],

Bigbobomobmombombobm, Bigred0000000000, Doomer, FrinkX, Nolan,

DustySwedeDude - guy was the most social/least nerdy I’ve ever seen an LPer at a live MTT table, was smashing the red wine at some semilarge euro main event donkament and being the table entertainer,

F4zi - flashiest LPer, knew how to enjoy his life,

Xervean - OG LP Degen taking high stakes shots for rolls back in the day. I understand through social media the man has cleaned up his act and crushes chess/responsible stakes poker now?

Cutssss – Insane Frenchie doing ridic stuff and crushing the games on weird euro sites.

And LPers I don’t think I ever met but who I chatted with online a lot or just enjoyed the posts of:
Baal (great guy, lots of life wisdom and lots of car wisdom)

Ggplz – actually ha we did meet but before poker, at WCG UK! Good guy

Arya – more well known as a TL.net mod (just not by me because I can’t remember his name or more well known ID anymore, just went by Arya on LP). Introduced me to GoT books in 2006 way before there was any murmur of a HBO show. Has a great story of taking a degen underrolled partypoker 10/20nl shot. Played 1 orbit. Limps utg with AA. Hsnl proto-crusher loloTRICKEDu isolate raises, Arya limp-reraises ALLIN FOR 100BB. Gets timebank-called by AK or something, wins $2k, sits out next hand, never plays a hand of 10/20 again. 10000bb/100 lifetime winrate lol.

Other names of posters I liked that come to mind- Loco, byrnesam, SakiSaki, Tomson, Rhaegar.

I almost don’t want to even press the post button at this point because I’m scared I’m forgetting people here. Pls don’t take it personally and kindly post your own stories of our shared good times if you see this!

Would always love to reconnect with old LP friends at some point in life, send me a PM if any of you guys are ever in London and want to get a dinner or drink. Am assuming many of you check this site from once every two years to never, so even if you’re reading this a few years down the line offer stands ????. Actually just reach out to reconnect anyway, would love to know what you guys are up to now etc. Let me know where in the world you are (incase I’m travelling there anytime soon like with work or something.. likely in US + Toronto few times a year now that travel is a thing again)

As for me I quit poker in 2013 and rejoined the zz traditional route. Got married, started a family (my daughter is 7 now), got a finance job looking at stocks.

Cheers!
Ket

Bravo. The good feelings of nostalgia are strong within me.

Arya is like the one guy I kind of forgot about. We were as thick as thieves playing .5/1 or 1/2. That 10/20 hand is so legendary. He decided to focus on I believe Law at a very good university and when I left facebook the relationship disappeared.

FYI there are talks about closing LP down. It's not the same LP it was back in '05 - '08. One reason not to close it down is because every now and again someone like you stops by and people get good feelings.

I've also been hit with nostalgia from watching some old High Stakes Poker episodes recently. I also went to Vegas for the first time last year and played at a few different casinos after being inactive since 2010 and it was really fun. I think I would have enjoyed poker for longer if it was a possibility to play live games where I live.

The only relevant story I have to add is when I went to a strip club with Fayth and some other StarCraft players when we started being successful at poker, and he offered me several hundreds of dollars if I took some lap dances from a fat chick and I declined. He just kept raising the amount he'd give to me and I kept declining. I also played credit card roulette for the first time when we had a LP dinner at the PCA in 2009 and the finals were me against Fayth with RainKhan holding the cards and I chose and Fayth ended up losing and tilting for a second but he took it pretty well, it was a really expensive meal lol we were like 8 or 9 at the table.

You were always a really helpful and solid Ket, hope you're doing well.

"longple – epic grinder, one of the guys that was becoming the new generation of beast just as I was quitting the game, had a great dinner with him in London and was very happy to see him having deserved success at the time for his hard work."

I was longple's padawan. I seem like a third-generation LP'er in the context of this post. The force was strong with that guy. He taught me new things that I would later confirm to be optimal by the solver. I believe Longple was on his way to become one of the best NL players in the world, but he never made it to the nosebleeds for some reason. The swedes crushed at poker during this time...Wilhasha, and Isildur1 were both at the top. They were the last group of top players that made people believe that sheer intuition was capable of making you number 1.

Longple still made what is probably the most insane successful bluff i've ever seen, which worked. (against tuffshark). He called with a pocket pair twice then bluffed by repping quads or some shit. He posted it on LP and everyone thought Longple was a lunatic that got lucky, (except for me). Perhaps someone can find it in the HH section. Edit: I found it! https://www.liquidpoker.net/h/936362. Wow, hand seems actually very normal by today's standards. Crazy at the time though.

Out of that list, I've only met Byrnesam, who used to crash at my place a lot after we went drinking. Very funny guy. When Byrnesam is drunk, he often walks backwards, then fowards, then sideways. I had to direct him with nudges to make him walk up the hill to my place once. Lmao.

I have to apologize to Raszi. Byrnsesam once logged onto my LP account and insulted him a lot on this forum. I didn't want to do that as I barely knew who Raszi was.

I remember watching you play in the early days and making the incredibly funny joke to myself: "no set, no bet, Ket". At the time I though everyone should be a LAGtarded spew monkey.
I've got a stylish party house with multiple computers setup for LAN parties in Christchurch New Zealand if you are ever in the neighborhood!

I wish I could read and see these forbidden stories.

LOL @ throwing a water baloon at Raszi's face while he is raging.

Good stuff Ket, your timing and ability to quickly pivot in life was flawless, to start in poker, to switch to PLO and leave for a career in finance (I think you wanted the pursue law at the time).

Hey man,

Thanks for the shoutout, yeah I remember getting clapped at WCG on some weird island map vs you after you practised some frozenarbiter build LOL, that was a very interesting trip though and I'm glad I had the chance to meet u back then pre-poker / TL days. I do wish that we had met again since then, but I was never a giga high roller etc and mostly played online with some live in UK/abroad. I played for fun & freedom. However, I lost total interest in poker quite a while ago and very rarely I still play the odd hand or two for fun. I think of you as one of the most respectable and intelligent people I ever met and also appreciate you for keeping a proportionate fun loving approach to life. Congrats on your family and daughter also growing up fast! That's fantastic.

I'm doing something somewhat similar to yourself atm, although I'm not working for a major firm. Basically I'm a private investor focusing largely on stocks with hidden value and momentum. I have owned part of a few businesses which were amazingly undervalued only to see them get sold by the owners for a premium. Not a bad result, but not exactly what I wanted. Currently I'm mostly interested in materials, mining, chemical and holding companies. I like reading a lot and thinking about how they work.

Always happy to meet up with you sometime again in the future, I will definitely hit you up if I'm in London. And if u want to chat more or do a call sometime we can, I'm not on any social media atm except Discord (if that counts) but just DM me whatever method u use to chat nowadays.

Love the write up, will never forget all the legends mentioned. PS, I though Straate had passed away in Amsterdam or am I confusing him with another LPer?

BTW, I recently bought a product called a yubikey, basically it's a hardware 2 factor authenticator and you can also use it for one time passwords, NFCs, static passwords and a few other similar methods. It allows 2 methods per key. Great way to protect various logins and you can buy multiple keys and connect them to the same services as a backup incase you lose your main key. I love this method and think you would be interested in it if you're not already

Catch u again soon
<3

Ah nice good for him.. Ha thanks for kind words, where is this talk of LP closedown though? I guess all the more reason we find other ways to stay in touch.. I guess if it happens it just gets merged into TL.net somehow with a little poker section. Another super impressive thing to witness from sidelines has been how Naz/TL successfully rode the wave of eSports becoming mainstream. Always the man

Yo really appreciate ur kind words and LOLOL at that story. Fayth def a guy I'm forgetting the first time around. Another guy I remember put in massive grind back in the day and came up pretty quickly when he put the work in. what you up to nowadays Loco?

LOL Byrnesam legend. Really enjoyed reading the Longple story, and that hand link is amazing especially the LPer chat in the comments. I guess that in a nutshell captures is the era of poker moving forward towards more solid theoretical play away from my day's ridiculous street poker (standard open size was 4x, 3b to 14-16bb with unreasonable frequencies, cb 20bb lol), and with hindsight longple was clearly in front of it.
Had an awesome couple 'old times sake' HU battles with longple long after I'd quit NLHE and was a plo player. Think I fared okay in the first one, must have ran good, but def got torn a new one in the second one.
Stroggoz - think I vaguely remember lurking the site years after I stopped posting and saw u were doing well in poker's solver era? Great to see. Have you posted your own poker story somewhere

Ha thanks mate. Not really sure what happened with the rate of decline in quality of games after I left and whether it was ahead or below my expectations at the time or not but any perceived good timing was probs mainly luck on my part. Right place right time in golden days, and then quit when I did because I didn't wanna leave it too late to get into something else.

Ah great to hear from you. I'll pm you my mobile, perhaps good to keep in touch via whatsapp chat. Great to hear ur into the stocks etc.
LOL frozenarbiter build - I got him to teach me it personally in my WCG prep. I asked and he was initially hesitant to help because UK only sends one person, and he was more loyal as a closer friend to Midian at the time who's "competing" for the same slot. I told him "lol mate don't worry, I am not going to beat midian if I learn a build from you". He went to Jamie to ask permission to teach me the builds. Jamie said "lol sure" ofcourse.

Frozenarbiter - definitely another guy I forgot to mention initially. Had the pleasure to meet him when I spent a summer in Seoul. There's a story from that night out which _absolutely_ can't be repeated publically for his sake

Did totally have you and Luke in mind when making this post but left a bunch of people out that weren't regular LPers because wrong audience etc. Amazing surprise to see u pop up here, what you up to nowadays mate?? Still keep in touch with Luke? Haha I'm not dying or something don't worry.

It allows 2 methods per key. Great way to protect various logins and you can buy multiple keys and connect them to the same services as a backup incase you lose your main key. I love this method and think you would be interested in it if you're not already

Catch u again soon

The guy who passed away you're thinking of I believe to be ToT)Psier(. Johannes Strassmann I think his real name was. Good to see some old UK BW guys still kicking around here

One day good. One day bad. And some days, even hope
