    this actually inspired me to do a little digging, i've seen photos of that house on twitter but nothing he's posted has ever suggested he actually works outside of evo. 99% sure i found it, based on the last sale price & assuming it was financed, it puts the lower bound on annual income in the six-figure range. not extravagantly so, but certainly he's doing better than pretty much everyone in the scene save some of the big repeat winners like sonicfox.

    that's a conservative estimate of course & important to note, also based on quite-old data as the sale in question was during the AE2012 era, lol. the event has expanded dramatically since then and i'm sure his take with it.

    He comes off as extremely lazy, so he probably doesn't. I bet the Cannons/Chris are making close to him off EVO and are just smart/driven enough to also have other careers. I know Chris drives like a $350,000 car, and it probably isn't his daily driver. Super cool dude btw.

    That’s not even enough for the cheapest 1/3 buy-in for any Texas NLHE table anywhere in Vegas lol.

    Everything I found is public record (or based on analysis of public info), not too difficult to find if you know where to look. Tax filings and actual income details unfortunately aren’t public so that’s quite a bit trickier for random observers. Gets even hairier when you factor in he’s probably had controlling interest in a few different evo related entities over the years. Basically you’d need to break into his accountant’s files to get that level of detail, lol

    Looks like after all the crazy drama that happened during the Evo After Party (couple people got roofied), FGC is experiencing it's own #metoo movement. Gilty getting banned from some tournaments for past sexual harrassment as recent as last month apparently, Chris Bahn getting bannt for the same, and now a new allegation that Floe was groping some female in a hotel room.

    EVO got Harada in trouble with the higher ups in Japan even though he had no knowledge that EVO had produced the clip with the intent to play it during Tekken finals. The Tekken dev team told Harada that if he personally could convince Konami to license Snake, they would do a rush job to include the character within season 3.

    Gllty seems to be getting shit on more than defended it seems. A couple people came forward with incidents.

    ah yes, that classic hallmark behavior of "SJWs", kneejerk defense of sexual assault. lmao, cmon man, at least pick something that actually happened to be aggrieved over

    It’s actually something past that which is why i haven’t put it in words. Nothing to do with the assault per se, but i’m glad Gllty’s getting shit on for pulling that shit.

    I feel like gllty’s behavior has been an open secret for years. I’m sure part of why nothing’s been done about it is for fear of being labeled a certain way by SJW’s.

    Why the hell you guys tip toeing over your concern? You seriously think "sjws" gonna blanket defend Gllty cause she's trans? Lol

    The few defenders that I see seem to give her that known/top player privilege so she gets by on that along with the public apology directed at no one in particular being good enough.

    Floe is getting a lawyer to address his accusation so that one is still stewing. Blowup Tuesday for real.

    EVO 2019 -- does anyone still care?

    Well of course not now since she’s already apologized and owned up to it lol. I just feel it’s partially the reason why this has taken so long to come to light.

    Floe got that crazy Jew money.

    I feel like the FGC in general kinda shields shitty behavior more often than not or it's just handled inhouse until it becomes too well known or certain people catch wind of it. Like, wasn't Andre doing scummy shit for the longest until he got caught by police then he started getting banned from events?

    In other news, Poison is kinda fun and her thighs rival Chun's.
