This takes a little unwinding. Poker opinionist Steve Ruddock published an interesting article over on NJPokerOnline.net about how online poker rooms should stop relying on the pro player to set online policy. In it he suggests that pros “don’t start games”:
Sure, they’ll sit at an empty table, but they aren’t going to click the “deal me in” button until they check the person’s statistics online. And is there anything more frustrating or off-putting than 20 tables with a single player “sitting out?”
One pro who wasn’t too fond of the article is Ultimate Poker's outspoken pro William Reynolds:
This comment stirred a comment from a follower of the conversation, Joshua Seeley:
The pair trade jabs back and forth, as other players and twitter follower jump in to laughably suggest a boxing match or a UFC fight for a pair of these contentious poker players. Finally, Seely snaps a pic to prove that he’s waiting for Reynold at the tables to take him on.
William then, issues a challenge and seemingly shuts everyone up when he replies with the photo above.
