    Also another point I want to make is use this thread to establish and promote your money matches with each other. Posting up would be good for declaring your money matches with each other. That way you guys come prepared and bring your money. Remember minimum bet is $5 and everyone money match game is first to 5.

    Do it.

    Anyone else is welcome to shout out as well but I'll probably be at Don's less often without the incentive to interview and observe the place for my piece (still working on it).
    Trying to provide the scene with pieces and articles that best represent it to the fullest. Looking for other contributors.

    Stay so I can learn the blanka match up better.

    I'm not here for money matches because I still suck at this game but give me a bit and I might be willing to try a ft5.

    Will most likely be there this Friday and might bring the girlfriend. If that happens, though, I may be leaving early.

    Money matches will start after midnight to give everyone plenty of time to get here.

    There should be someone, a third party, supervising the money matches and holding the money to give to the winner. It probably most likely be me. Loser has the option to double or nothing to another first to five but the winner must accept. Winner has the right to reject double or nothing offer from loser. If winner just wants to play one first to five money match and take the winnings he deserves it. Remember $5 minimum for each first to 5 money match.

    "Money won is twice as sweet as money earned."

    Or you guys could hold onto your money during the money match but the loser must be a sport and pay the winner. A third party must still supervise the first to 5 mm to make sure everything is kosher. I rather have a third party hold it so that the loser doesn't force a double or nothing on the winner.

    So I'll ask everyone does everyone approve of the third party holding the money before the money match?

    Don, two things. I approve of the third party.

    Secondly, Inception. :coffee:

    I would like to have a third party holding the money during the money match. That way no one hedges their bets. Back in the day I went street racing with my cousin and when my cousin beat the guy, the guy he beat wouldn't give the money. He wanted to double or nothing. So my cousin beat him again and he didn't want to give up his money and wanted to keep racing so he could win his money back. Guy was a sore loser.

    So by having a third party witness the action will make everything kosher. Loser has a right to request a double or nothing but the winner has the right to decline loser's request and walk away and take the money. One first to five money match is pretty convincing so the winner deserves that money and gets to keep it. If you're a sore loser then don't bet. Pure and simple. Be honorable and be a gentleman and money match the right way.

    The minimum bet is $5 so the money matches are serious enough that it is worth taking up one set up for the night (If there are a lot of money matches). I'm also thinking about tightening the ship and taking out one set up and bringing it down from 4 to 3 so that it's more competitive. I don't know yet.

    No comment on Inception.

    Thanks bro. This is just a once a week underground arcade lol.

    I think I played you at CVS2 at Alex's long time ago. I know I live far from the OC but you should come over sometimes. Alex Arcade guys are my homies:). You're always welcomed at my place.

    We might have TVC next Friday but no guarantees. I got to ask Jon the TVC guy to bring the setup. We'll see what happens.

    Thank you all for spending your Friday after Thanksgiving at my place and joining me. It was a lot of fun. We had over 20 people this time.

    Thank you Sal and Tim for entertaining everyone with the first ever money match at my place. It was also hilarious how Sanchez and Lee were side betting on who would get the first hit every round lol. That was awesome. Hopefully we'll get more money matches in the future. They're really entertaining.

    Thanks everyone I hope you all enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving weekend.

    Let's do this again next week:)

    GG's to everyone last night. I gotta learn to stop when I get burnt out. My play gets worse and worse.

    Sanchez, I need my world title plastic belt back- the one I never had.

    Justin where do you live? We both drive up the 405N. Maybe we can carpool next time.

    ggs everyone. Still in my "Quirks finding mode" with ssf4 but I'll be ready for real play soon enough. Just gotta get my 360 back from my friend.

    so anyone wanna help run a danisen next week? Maybe Sanchez could help?


    Also have been wondering what is missing from my posts and or conversations at Don's place.

    Rage.

    An easy to villainize target upon which to vent my rage.

    Graphic logos, slogans with which to focus my rage.

    A call to arms for others to join me in my rage.

    Others seem to do it so much better than I, but that's the easy way out. I'd rather just own.

    But if it means so much to you guys, I'll get to work on it asap. But once I get going, it's hard to get me to stop. I wanted to be nice.

    Sorry about that, it was obvious you didn't know the matchup... And I completely took advantage of that fact! Lol ggs man.

    Respect to res for beating me down something fierce. Nice frame traps, your cammy has really leveled up since the last time we played. I saw the sako jump hk as well, good stuff. Ggs to lvangundy as always and of course my inspiration to keep playing ibuki: motempest. Nice shit, I wish I had it like you!

    Ggs to the Cody and Dan players I played at the end of the night. And thx to Sanchez for letting his sexiness come parlay with all of us.

    If it was at Alex, for sure we played man. I haven't touched Cvs2, or any other games, but I really want to play "humans" and Alex is dead for Cvs2, 3rd and Turbo. I will probably stop this Friday. I appreciate your invitation to the community. Alex representatives will be there soon :) I should practice some Cvs2 at home so I don't get owned hahahaha Thanks man!:nunchuck:

    You're not good enough to play Simon's Quest, Mr. I died 25 times because I couldn't find the blue ring before I reach level 5 in the 2nd Quest of the first Zelda:p

    If I sacrifice a set up and put in Tekken 6, then it better be worth it.

    So please rally some ppl to come over and play Tekken 6. Oh God.

    I actually have a copy of Tekken 6. My brother bought it and it got only played once after it was opened.

    Eating Korean BBQ right now btw:)
