Wow. I can't believe i just saw Drossxyu's name here. I used to play a lot of 30/60 LHE awhile back with him. He wasn't that good, but he wasn't horrible. He had a blog that he closed up to the public. Sad to see that he's playing .25/.50NL. Needless, to say he'd definitely be better than avg at a .25/.50 table, and I wouldn't be surprised there that he had quads since there isn't much he would bet the turn and call a check raise with there besides a big hand. Anyways, weird to see his name at such low stakes...
