Phil looks surprisingly happy after being Laaaaaagled*

What's his story?
Brad is one of the founding "fathers" of the poker group. For the first year and a half, he was a fixture at the weekly games unless a softball game got in the way. With the new addition to the Laaaaaagle family, his attendance has declined. He still attends games when he can but his love of the game will be bestowed upon his son when he is old enough to bet the chips instead of gnawing on them. His online poker has increased proportional to the decline of his live play. Without being able to attend trips, he is perfecting his poker online against people from across the world. When he does attend trips, he likes to hang out with his friend Phil (see above).

What does he do when he's not playing poker?
Brad is married and works a typical 9-5 job in RTP. If it were not for his firewall at work, he would be playing poker online while at "work" :). He also enjoys playing the outfield and pitching for his church and work softball teams. Most of his time is consumed by his offspring Jakob Dylan. Jakob likes to stare at the computer screen while Brad is playing poker online. Just like his dad, he likes bright and shiny items. Fantasy games occupy Brad's time year round. He is addicted to any sport with players, teams, and stats... He even played in an arena football fantasy league. His friends tell him that he needs professional help.

Casino Poker Games of Choice
Brad has played 2-4 or 4-8 limit on all the trips but wants to branch out to the no limit games. He also enjoy any sports betting, black jack, roulette, and occasional slots for a poker break. He loves playing large multi-table tournaments with slowly increasing blinds but doesn't have the bankroll to play them in casinos. Typically online he has just enough time for some 10.00 sit and go tournaments or a few hands of NL ring games.

Poker Leaks
Having a wife and kid is a leak that flows like a river. NCAA brackets, fantasy football, fantasy baseball, fantasy racing, fantasy hockey, NFL pick 'em leagues, NFL survival groups, and College football pick 'em leagues are some of the other leaks Brad enjoys.

Poker Pet Peeves
  • Limping in with Aces (Brian)
  • Holding pocket 10's, J's, Q's, or K's and an Ace or 3 suited cards come on the flop
  • Rookie players betting with nothing on a 3 way pot when one person is all in...AND THEN LOSING WHEN BRAD COULD HAVE LAAAAAAGLED THEM ALL TO WIN!!
  • Overly aggressive players complaining that everyone calls their raises and not "respecting the raise"
  • Players who bet big and are called on the river only to muck their cards (Kerry)
  • Drink girls not coming around often enough
  • Casino tournaments where blinds, prizes, entry fee, and time are not clearly defined

  • Online Poker
    Brad mainly plays at pokerroom.com and his screen name is Flagle. You will find him at the 10.00 sit and go's and occasional 1-2 no limit or 1-2 limit tables.

    Greatest poker moment
    Winning a 42 person, 40.00 buy in event at Lance's house. The win netted him 750.00 and is by far the most he has won at one tournament.

    * Namesake of "The Laaaaaagle"
    If you hear the term "Laaaaaagled," then you know you've just been handed a bad beat. Often when a miracle card comes up on the river to give someone an unlikely win, you'll hear poker group members exclaim, "Laaaaaagled!" The group has talked about making t-shirts that illustrate a rivered bad beat that says, "You've just been Laaaaaagled!"
