  1. I'm glad I wasn't the only one that noticed Cunningham's walk haha, but oh my god if durrr made that call on hellmuth that could of gone down as the biggest phil hellmuth blow up in HISTORY i was soooooooooooooooooooooooo glued to the tv, when he faked called i was sooo excited.I'm surprised phil picked up on it so fast as about to flip his hand over, that very well could of saved him. Any comments on that fake call/fake flip?

  2. Well, I would say you only need life insurance if A. But, waiting till your 40 is ridiculous, as the price goes up every year. Hell, I got $1mil when I was 27 (right after my first child) and I only pay $700/year. If I got that now, it would be like $1200 or so. At 40, it might be $2000 or more.. Bad advice, I think.
    medical insurance and life insurance are 2 different things last time I checked :club:
  3. Wow - dangerous piece of advice if you live in the US. You forgot to mention D, if despite B you should end up requiring medical insurance you usually cannot get it (at least not without being fleeced) because of "pre-existing condition". I would advise you to keep at least some health insurance and keep it current at all times; then it becomes a lot harder to deny care because of pre-existing. And because of HIPAA, if you have health insurance and a serious medical condition, you can keep your coverage even if you switch to a job where you are covered. Then they cannot deny you because of pre-existing.Unfortunately I know all too well first hand; I'm not even 40 yet but I got diagnosed with a rare form of cancer when I was 25 (over 10 years ago) - since I get a copy of the bills going to the insurance company I can tell you that I would have been out close to $500,000 at this point due to radiation, chemo theraphy and too many surgeries to count. Like you I never thought I would need it - I had been healthy as an oxe prior to my diagnosis; didn't live on top of a Superfund site and it just came out of the blue - much like somebody else mentioned; you don't think your house will burn to the ground but if it does and you don't carry insurance .....Sorry for getting all personal here, but this is a pet peeve of mine - if you can at all afford; never go without health insurance in the US.RegardsErasa
    So damn true, like I can't say anything else because you just hit the nail on the head, if I lived in the states, this is one expense that I would never go tight pocketed on. You never know when you can get hurt. No one ever said anything about young kids playing sports too how many injuries would a kid have from playing a contact sport? I played quite a bit of sports when I was young and was hit extremely hurt but I was luckly to come out of it all with 1 injury a seperated shoulder.But I always saw my friends get concussions/broken limbs/bad bad cuts.
  4. I think our hero is in some trouble. I hope I am wrong but have my doubts. Tax time on the $3M perhaps??? There goes 1.5M alone.
    Just a question regarding taxation, although you can say "there goes $1.5million," can he claim losses from poker as well after all it is his profession, I'm guessing he can, but can someone confirm please?
  5. I think the episodes they're playing right now were taped months ago. Matusow mentioned something about betting on a baseball game during heads-up, so it's gotta be at October at the most recent. I'm sure they're done way in advance and the taping that DN was supposed to attend was postponed for one reason or another.
    Makes sense, thanks. Now I'm wondering when they are taped haha
  6. i was playing an idiot heads up too but he always had the better hand when we were in a big pot plus im drunk and high and a ****en moron i dont know what im gonna do to get 5k back
    over reaction hoooooooooooly. You lost $5,000 big deal. That doesn't mean you should end your life. Playing drunk and high won't help.Don't think you will get much sympathy because of those two things there. As for being a professional poker player......with a $10,000 bankroll? Think you need to set your priorities straight and as others said manage your bankroll, start off not playing high/drunk and make sure you don't get carried away playing heads up in ring.Maybe play lower blinds too."what should i do...should i end my life or quit poker"Hmmmm tough question there, stop living. Or stop playing poker. I'm sure you will wake up tomorrow and think wow I sounded silly.Just take some time off and get yourself together.
  7. I wouldn't say his attitude towards losing a million is only based on his amount in his bankroll, but his confidence in able to win that back could happen just as fast as he lost it.We need to understand that if he won a million he wouldn't react like it is THAT big of a deal as it sounds. A million sounds like a lot of money but when you're playing cash games where some pots get as high as $300,000 it isn't that big after all.This is his job, he needs large sums of money to make large sums of money, and who knows he could get in a horrible run for months like any other poker player.It is too hard to predict his bankroll and net worth (Factoring in this years and the previous years, tournaments, cash game results, promotion fees if any, investments, various bets including other activities. ), My guess is as good as the next guy's guess.And to say it is none of our business is true, but we obviously know when a person is involved in a high $ environment people love to know the juicy facts and gaze at his high net worth.It will come up again and again. I'm sure Daniel is not offended by it as I'm sure he has had the question come up many times before. Whether he tells or not, Daniel can't win. People will flame him for coming out and saying he has X amount of dollars and also they'll flame him for not coming out and saying it.

  8. You really take that to heart? So what if its first class?When I read that line I actually laughed and I thought hahaha oh Daniel your so great. hahaI'd expect him to travel 1st class anyway, plus with amount of traveling he'll do it be a lot easier and more relaxing in first class :club: I don't see why you'd take it to heart like that unless you were jealous or something. But thats just my 2 cents I guess everyone takes it diferently
