There are a number of scenarios as to how this all is incorporated into reality, none of them not creepy.

Glad I'm not alone in this. The larger spectrum (one that is plausible, well, several that are plausible) is at least disturbing.

This is beginning to play out like a mix between Kate Chopin's "The Awakening" and Anton Checkhov's "The Lady with the Pet Dog." But that's probably due in large part to Angelene's archived post.

Do you guys actually believe ANY Of this?
Seriously.

Josif, son of Mekan Fekali, 5-card stud prodigy at the age of four, dropped out of the Municipal High School of Tirana (Albania) at the age of five, persuing his lifelong dream, a career of a sheep herder. Herded sheep as a freelancer until he immigrated from Albania to Ljubljana, Slovenia in 1960, where he retired twenty years later, serving in position of Special Slovene Herding Advisor.

It's like a bad Austin Powers sequel.

Hence in my original post, I asked "Are the Fekali's a real family or just the invention of a fertile imagination?". I agree that the Fekali website sounds like a bad movie, but this is only one question out of several, and it does not by association make everything unbelievable.

However, I wouldn't be entirely suprised that Angelina's April Fools was part of a larger prank, and that Angelina = Izmet = Abdul.

Ljubljana Cheaters Caught. Anyone we know?
Posted by: Bob
Posted on: Friday, 19 January 2001, at 4:44 p.m.

SLOVENIA Casino Cheat Goes Free Melanie Banks, Gambling Newsletter Slovenian police caught an Italian citizen January 16 using a miniature video camera and a mobile phone to cheat in a game of poker in a casino in Ljubljana, which borders with Italy.

"We had a couple of attempts to cheat in casinos before, but none of them was as technologically advanced as this one," said Ivan Maras, police spokesman. The man put a bag with a mini video camera behind the dealer so that images of the cards could be transmitted to a hotel room nearby where an accomplice advised the gambler by mobile phone via a tiny receiver mounted in his ear. The cheat was detained for six hours but the police had to free him when they couldn't prove how much money had been won by the scam. The accomplice also went free.

A friend of mine on another forum was telling me about DERB a few days ago, so i figured i'd check it out. Instead somehow i managed to stumble upon the poker illumaniti. This is quite suspenseful, and completely insane, and yet i am quite intrigued and want to hear more. In fact at this point i hardly even care about the poker relevance. I am hooked... like sands in an hourglass

It's fairly apparent that Angelina is the very first gimmick account on 2+2, opened by none other than DS himself. NH Mr. DS.

This is so much fun to watch that I hate to contribute, but Tonda is beyond doubt Abdul's wife. Old school RGPers will remember her at one of the BARGE events.

For instance:

This thread or that thread.

Please continue with the entertainment.

Yep, I'm gonna spill out some more old gossip, from Tonda's mouth:

Quote:

He moved to Slovenia in the summer of 03. He had visited there several months before (when we were still married) and I gather, deduced he liked his rich buddy’s (Ismet Fekali) lifestyle better than he liked married life. We kept in touch up until about 3-4 months ago when he seems to have disappeared from the face of the earth. I’ve been worried that something has happened to him, but there is little I can do about it.

The last time I talked to him, he was still playing poker for a living both online and playing in some European tournaments. At present, your guess is as good as mine.




This adds a new intepretation to Angelina's apology in the April Fools letter. If she and Izmet are in fact the same person, then he (and his alter-ego sister) are in some ways responsible for the marriage break up of Abdul and Tonda.

Similarly, the rest of the April fool letter could be re-intepreted along these grounds. The "seduction" by Sklansky poker theory and then later by Abdul Jalib's other way (the way of the DERB?).

I'm reading far too much into this, but it's fun!

I have absolutely no idea WTF is going on here. Out of curiosity I opened the thread and am totally confused/amused.

I did happen to notice that Angelina's initials, A.F., could be a reference to April Fool. Farfetched observation? Stoopid observation? Example of how the mind of DS might work?

Except there really is a regular player on Paradise poker who is named Angelina.
