Viffer: The Ultimate Degen

“All girls are hookers”

All your “Viffer” stories in one place.

David “Viffer” Peat took to the Poker Life Podcast to talk with Joey Ingram about all things “Viffer” including rounding up some of the best Viffer Stories out there.

He talks about his HGG (Hooker Girl Grind) and a time he may have been given a blow job by a man, why he thinks all girls in Vegas are hookers, waking up with a neck tattoo that prompted a stint in rehab, his time on 2 Months, 2 Million and winning and losing millions of dollars playing poker. And that’s not even the half of it.

Check it out in all it’s glory, here.

Sorel Mizzi’s Remorse

What happens when you get caught playing online poker from the United States.

I’m guessing it’s the same reaction when you’re caught multi-accounting..?

Well, Mizzi does create his own moral universe so we shouldn’t be surprised.

The tweet from Mizzi (who has more than $11.2 million in live poker tournament winnings and over $3.6 million in online tournament winnings) comes after admitting on the Poker Life Podcast that he has been banned from PokerStars again. “I can’t play on [PokerStars] for a couple years,” Mizzi stated.

No Live Sighting of The Great Dane:

But he’s back playing online!

After being spotted at the Bellagio back in August by Daniel Negreanu we were hoping the allusive Gus Hanson would make an appearance at the Unibet Open Copenhagen stop—but he is yet to be seen.

That could be because he is back on PokerStars playing online under his account broksi.

According to PokerStrategy, he appears to be mostly playing $200/$400 and $300/$600 Limit Omaha Hi/Lo and Triple Draw games. The diligent posters on 2+2 are posting some of his biggest hands if you want to follow along.

Let’s not mention the fact he is still $1.39 million down, lifetime, on that account… maybe he’s about to bring it all back.
