In Response To: Stick Challenge (Strato)

I do not represent a group of players. I have received many supportive emails, and a few negative ones, from players who do not want to post publically. And yes, all of the money is my own.

You ask what odds I would be willing to lay. Currently I am offering to give infinite odds. 10000 to 0 . But, if a match is ever scheduled, I would be willing to wager a significant amount against Stick replicating the 2.04 PR.

Your point that having a person watching Stick may adversely effect him, strikes me as having little merit. I call this the Heisenberg Uncertainty defense, and you could claim this is true of anything. When I am alone in the shower, I am the greatest singer in the world. But if someone is listening, I get nervous and it suddenly sounds like cats mating. There is an old Ben Stiller movie called Mystery Men. In it, there is a character that can turn invisible at will. But only if nobody is watching. Maybe that is what we have here. Stick can play a 2.04, but only if nobody is watching.

I will not agree to the webcam idea. David Blaine held his breath underwater for 18 minutes on the Oprah show. There were cameras everywhere.
