I am Waffles Unfiltered

Waffles? Funny guy, good player, but basically makes his mark by pissing people off (not that it's a bad thing, really...). It's his M.O. - BloodyP


I thought I made my mark by saying what I thought in the moment.. be that anger, sorrow, joy, whatever, I am unfiltered. If it insults people sometimes then so be it. I guess people are so used to being pretend and fake people that a little bit of raw emotion and honesty freaks them out. Oh well. I doubt I am going to change anytime soon. If you think I am this way only in the blog your wayyy off too. I am pretty direct in person once I get to know you. I routinely call my co-workers donkeys and am the first one to congradulate or flame them. If they are looking for some false praise or something like that they go elsewhere. If you like to be pretend little poppets then go read someone else.

Waffles, i have been reading your blog for a short while and enjoy your straight to the point, unfiltered writing.

Also dont sweat what anyone thinks about you, you didnt even need to post this in defense, i think people know that you speak your mind no matter what. And of course thats going to rub some people the wrong way. Those people are the ones who need everything filtered to feed their pussy egos.

I say fuck them!

Oh jees, well they were some harsh words Nij. I did comment on your last post btw. I've seen more f-bombs in the last two days than one can hear at an all-nite diner for truckers. On chatting this over, deal...we'll talk when I get home. I'll message you.

Sorry for the burn on SLB's site. I was out of line. You are one of those players who can tilt me so bad that days later, when I'm reading a post where you are getting to a totally different player (SLB), I feel the residual tilt and bark off some acerbic shit that was not called for. My apologies sincerely.

No one expects you to be all prim and proper. On the other hand, when you play with the same people day in and day out, you expect some sort of comraderie. I think overall we try to lift each other's game up. However, when you start berating a player like SLB for getting lucky, all you are doing is trying to put him down. SLB made a less-than-optimal play, but you were shaming him into an apology for something that he had no reason to apologize for. If it was some random donkey at the table and you flamed him, I would laugh. If it was me, I'd throw it back at you and tilt you some more. But in this case, it was SLB, who is still learning, and your statements were less about instructing and more about putting him down, which isn't helpful to his game or yours.

No one says you have to be sweet as sugar. But as a piece of constructive criticism, when you steam like that, you are hurting yourself and YOUR game. Relax, accept the bad beats and be happy that you are the better player.

Now, shoot me an email at highonpokr AT yahoo DOT YOU KNOW THE REST. Thanks.

Worry less about others' play, worry more about your own.

WTF?

You dumb bastard, you're supposed to be magnanimous after you kick the shit out of 1500 idiots! And you're supposed to wait long enough for your friends to come by and congratulate you. Giving them ten minutes of daylight between posts ain't exactly fair.

I'd say "same ole waffles" but that can dangerous to a person's health.

Congrats again on the score, brotha. That's the story of the day for your blog as far as I'm concerned.

Yes, those people that get offended when you tell them to "Fuck Off" are being too sensitive.

I've watched the WWdN and a bit of a few MATH tournaments (never played) and seen the flamage waffles throws around. Its not as bad as some people, who get banned from chat on pokerstars for a week.

Waffles seems like he tilts a bit more verbally than most people. Poker is an adult game, no kids play it. And if someone is cussing at you, and it offends your sensabilities you can report them like the sea of chineese boyscouts.

Hey do you think they would monitor pokerstars and the comments section for cuss words then go tell the offenders mommy?

IMO the world is censored enough as it is, its refreshing to see someone so ... well uncensored.

Like I said, "it not a bad thing really".

I enjoy reading your rants and unfiltered ramblings, yo. I think it's funnier than hell, and I do think it's your M.O. (as well as your writing voice) just like me putting "yo" after every goddamn sentence is mine (yo).

I'm just glad I haven't been on the other side of the monitor while sucking out on you, yo. LOLOL!!

I honestly hope I didn't offend you with the quote up top.

Whew. I've been looking over my shoulder all day expecting you to bludgeon me in a back-ally with a "hammer".

Oh, and that whole "tongue kiss" thing on slb's blog has had me laughing all day.

Everyone's so fucking sensitive its sickening.

I like your style waffles, do well get a pat on the back, make a fucking donkey move and expect to eat some shit.

If people need their hands held they can call their mommies to get some smoke blown up their ass.

BTW Waffles you're a fucking donkey!

How dare anyone ever take waffle's money... I mean that douchebag must have been a total dick. Everyone knows that if Waffles has cash in the pot... its HIS pot, dammit.

Rage on my good Waffle... rage on!

Everyone wants their hands to hold up if they have the best of it when the money goes in.

Waffles thinks his hand holding up is ordained by God himself.

Don and Mookie have it right-on my man. We all love you for being just the way you are. I love everything you said to slb in that chat (though I agree he did present it as if it might have been said at the table which is worse than it really was). I would love to do something to you at the poker table that gets you to blow up like that at me. Sadly I don't know if I have the ability to do that to you...though I've seen you tilting a few times myself, both from tourneys and cash games on occasion. It's a beautiful sight to tell the truth.

Anyways, of course you're right to just keep doing what you're doing, and writing what you're writing. If you offend someone, they ought maybe to consider FUCKING OFF!!

Um.

You'd have to be retarded to think that chat was anything but an IM.

The second word would never make it through the language filters....

Dude, poker bloggers are retarded by nature.
