Liverpool, away in the CL, go 3-0 up inside 30 minutes.

Be great to see Liverpool regain some of their former glories.

Our defence is enjoying some positive variance. Don't be fooled, they're still crap. Great to watch going forward though. 4th is the best we can hope for this year but probably 5th more realistic, ahead of Arsenal of course.

So say I deposit 1 BTC (at $5k a coin) on a site. Win 10 coins at various values throughout a few months, then cashout 11 coins at $8k, do I pay CGT on the 1 coin (3k increase)? Or just sack it off as there is no way of keeping track of what each coin won has increased/decreased in value?

Surely sack it off. You wouldn't have to pay CGT if the dollar surged to parity to the pound and you cashed out from stars. Or if you went to Vegas with $100k and by the time you came back was worth £100k.

I think the line is when you are viewed to be trading it. Where that line is who knows.

I'm sure someone will tell me I'm talking out of my arse, but since crypto is a currency, not a stock, if you just hold it then sell it months later (rather than trade it daily for e.g.) then surely you aren't subject to CGT?

Anyone fancy a trip to Zimbabwe to sell a load of bitcoin to em for $14k a coin?

Does it actually have anything to do with us ?
What these high rollers do / get up to ?
Does anybody think they read this ? / even care ?
It certainly happens at much lower levels we’ve all been knocked for a bit of dollar here n there n learnt ?


Remarkable that people are interested isn't it?

I could understand the outrage if Leon was a bird wearing a low cut top but when it's just two regular guys fighting it out in court of millions of dollars won in a drunken poker game, how this thread has reached 5 pages I'll never know!

Thanks to teddy and Longines, I have got this working now. I found Microsoft Azure the easiest to set up (for a tech noob) and now have a virtual machine of my own to run pio on. Haven't done much testing yet, using Pio free for now, and a free trial on Azure with a 16GB ram and 4x core but may need to go bigger - I think it's very cheap whatever you use, so long as you pay per hour).

Cheers guys. Anyone who wants me to help them set this kind of thing up, shoot me a message and I'll try and help.

The way I see the $1m situation is that as Rob described, Leon spoke to Matt like he was a kid, offered him $1m, which completely enraged Matt, who knew in his head that he was going to sue Leon for the rest, but kept cool, took the $1m because that is all he was being offered and then in his words "use it to ruin Leon's reputation".

Nice story Tom!

I've had mixed experiences with letting people off money. E.g. in poker hands, telling people I've got it, or in chinese back in the day I remember missetting a hand on purpose costing me several hundred. Some worth it, some not. Lessons always learnt though.

@cos
It wasn't Leon's idea, rob said "if you feel bad then how about offering x as a goodwill gesture" which Matt did. According to Rob, Leon was ok to pay the 3m but also accepted Matts offer which seems reasonable.

Everything is reasonable up to the point of the backers cancelling the deal then both sides acted poorly in my view.

Matts backers are the stupid ones here. The $~300k in equity they give up in the deal is peanuts in the grand scheme of things to a) make sure they get paid the $2m and b) keep Leon sweet for the future.

Matt should've made this clear to them and even if they said no, probably swallowed the loss on his own dime / find another backer for the $1m hu match.

Red dog's stance is interesting. In your eyes Tom, the second deal supersedes the first (the initial loan of 3m) and now Matt has reneged on it, so.... what happens next? Matt was out of order to reneg, sure, what is the next move now? What are Leon's obligations at this point?

Really interesting take on it.

But seriously, I'd be looking at a cloud-based solution. At 76 cents an hour for an 8-core 32GB server, you can run a whole forest's worth of trees for a fraction of the price of a high-spec laptop, plus the cost of cloud computing is only going to fall in the long term.

That sounds very interesting mate because ideally I just wanna keep my MacBook and run it off there but it's a windows obly piece of kit and my Mac has no free space anyway (any tips on how to clear space there would be great as well btw!?)

Could you explain the cloud server thing in lehmans terms please?

 Anyone running pio on a laptop? Recs and advice appreciated

So Matt accepted the initial deal and then got the phone call (from backers presumably telling him no?) at which point the deal was off?

Tough spot at the table when Leon is forcing Matt to keep playing. Not sure what I would've done. Probably quit and hope he respects you for it in the morning. Playing someone HU for those stakes when they can barely see the cards just isn't right.

I'm generally a big Doug fan but I think he came across really badly in his FB live video having a go at the recreational players & MB for not showing up.

What was the PAD story where Berkey didn't get a seat he was promised or something?
