    Id never seen or heard of El Camino del Rey until Komp posted a video up. I remember holding on to the armchair watching it for the first time....



    Always trying to bring the forum interesting stuff.

    Hi Yorkie, good to see you again mate, how's tricks?

    You've just reminded me I need to get in touch with Komps sister Lian to get his foundation website off the ground.

    All good slick Kept myself off betting forums for a long time now and concentrated spending my time on my children and my wife.

    How's everyone on here? Busy on here or quiet? Seems like forums have died quite a bit unfortunately :(

    Same old Yorkie but we keep going because we're too old in the tooth to do twitter or Instagram and the like, this way we know the score so to speak.

    Good to see you've sorted yourself out and have settled down to be a family man, you were very short odds against that when news first broke the misses was expecting lol.

    How many kids have you got now and what are the ages?

    Hi Doc, good to see you are doing ok and to see you post in this thread mate. I don't really play poker much these days (and certainly not online) - stopped several years ago now. Always had a ton of respect for you and your analysis of anything to do with gambling. Just that I wanted to be a big shot in no limit games and couldn't hack the fixed limit :embarassed. Do you have a website or anything these days?

    Yes it is a shame that it takes something like this to bring people together but as you say that is the way of life, and it is good to see all the old usernames in this thread remembering Komp.

    If there is one betting event every year that makes me think of Komp and all the old crew its Eurovision. I have not had a winner up since 2003 yet I go in big time every year :frown.

    Also with the World Cup coming later this year was there not a pub manager on the forums who during the 2002 tournament put the weekend takings on Italy to beat South Korea? I can't remember the username but do remember how that one turned out :roll..
