    Great contest, food was good, George did a great job as always. Great group of eaters, some I had not seen in too long, it was great catching up. Where has steakbellie been though.

    Notice that Goldstein won’t post pics or videos of himself in fear that someone will scrutinize the shit out of his wrinkled face and bad wiglet?

    If you check out the database Goldstein earned $1950 competing nearly 10yrs with the IFOCE but in actuality he really earned $850 . Alka Seltzer US open everyone who got chosen for the event received $500 and he received $600 for finishing dead last in Krystal burgers but everyone got paid from 1st to last place . In the other contests where he supposedly earned his keep, he beat the worst eaters on this planet some of which we never heard of. In turkey contest $500 he beat out Conti and Edible real household names. In the Ramen noodle contest $250 he beat Conti and Steakbellie . The clam chowder contest which he took home a whopping $100 . This one tops the cake This time he beat out some real heavy hitters one of which was Gavonne brother . Dave Rose, Hayden Lynch , Iran Copelov Sounds more like some of the tomato cans Rocky Balboa defeated before he took on Clubber Lang (Mr T) in Rocky 3

    Seiken, 4:11 get off the shitpot, and neither Seiken nor Goldstein have anything to do with this contest. How about we congratulate Joey and Carmen who it says in an article (do you ever read them?) are good buddies. Joey thanks Carmen for pushing him. Wing Kong, always the gentleman, writes about the comraderie of CE and MLE members. That is how it should be.

    Almost forgot the value of 240lbs of Nathan’s hotdogs, $1000 in Nathan’s expense money, $2000 for the Las Vegas Spike TV event. It’s not considered too much compared to the heavy hitters but a lot better than a quarter for the parking meter.

    Still doesnt beat the 4k in poker winnings Seiken accrued in less than a few months where you wasted a decade of your life poisoning your intestines for a mere $850 in actual total earnings.

    Camraderie my fuckin ass. Do one non sanctioned event and your considered a non entity more like you never even existed in their organization . Case in point Bertoletti, Boone, Shoudt, Torres , Gravy, and many more . So many i cant even count

    The comraderie is among fellow eaters and has nothing to do with how MLE treats its eaters. This is one of the reasons people join MLE. And after people leave MLE to do their own thing, friendships made does not stop. Case in point, Bertoletti, Janus, Gravy, maintain strong friendships with a few MLE eaters. Same goes for MC’s and others who have worked for MLE.

    some people are just pleasant to be around, seiken not one of them, hence why he was never received well at any contests he went to

    Rounders is 20yrs old and outdated. Poker is for the rich and not the poor. If you have a big bankroll its a fun game

    Seiken, once again, this is not POKERFEATS. To quote your often used term, who gives a shit (about poker.)

    Seiken does not play poker anymore He used to but stopped . Win 4 only He hit it two weeks ago for 50cent straight . Less to invest better odds more to win

    Goldstein faked his pleasantness backstabbed all his friends in CE by ratting them out to the Shea’s if they finished ahead of him (and most did) and talking smack about them behind their backs . Its a wonder Jarvis stayed his friend for so long
