  1. What is the definition of a Pro Poker Player?someone who sole(majority) income is from playing poker for a living....right?Do players that made it that dont have to play another hand of poker to live and live like a king still consider themselves as Pro poker players?DN, Dolye, Lederer, Hellmuth, and all other Pros that make money in books, console games, internet site endorsements, dont need to play anymore and will have millions from other businesses...are they still a pro for playing tourneys and side games?I see Rene Angelil playing in any and all tourneys..i know he doesnt need the money but he plays enough in the big game and other tourneys them most pros. These big stars, I think they are no more Pro Poker players and they are businessmen that play Poker for fun like Rene does.

  2. so ivey has 100k but that he is gonna use to play baccarat....If i could live any poker players life...it would be Ivey for sure..DNs life would be nice too...but Ivey just trumps him..I dont even think he cares if he goes broke because he would make it all back in 1 year or less....to be young and rich and talented..what a dream life...Whos poker players life would you like more Ivey or DN or any other player?

  3. Annie Duke Straddled her BROTHER after winning a touney.....anyway...poker is a skill game, poker is a skilled game, poker is a skilled game....then at the end PPA dude saids..."People want to gamble..people want to play poker"poker might be 75% luck..25% skill...maybe 80/20

  4. Hi.If you don't want your kids playing online poker then teach them some bloody responsibility. Or be a bloody parent and watch them.If you think that you'd be addicted then learn some bloody responsibility.Don't worry about other people, they are their own responsibilities and should be allowed to make their own mistakes and be forgiven in turn.If you're afraid of being addicted to online poker then don't bloody play it. Or at least don't make me suffer because you have no self control.If you don't fall into any of these categories then what do you care?Don’t make the responsible suffer to protect the irresponsible.Thanks.
    so from your reasons..cocain should be legal and if I dont use cocain then i should not care and if i cant enough of it i should have more self control...
  5. Do you think internet gambling is wrong..blackjack, roulette, slots and other casino games? Who has ever won playing casino games online? Internet poker rooms now adays not only have poker but most if not all have casino games. 2 states in the united states have no type of gambling..utah and hawaii..what would it mean for those states if internet gambling is allowed? If you really wanted to play..isnt there a casino within a hour or 2 away? Kids that are not of legal age are getting addicted. B and M casinos have guards to prevent minors from entering. I like playing poker and if the internet poker went away..i could find ways to play by driving to a local cardroom. The negatives outweigh the positive by a large margin.

  6. being a pro has nothing to do with it. i cannot speak about bogey golf and how it is played however i was once there. i am currently a USGA 0 handicap and i play with some guys who hit it 30 yards past me and but have 0 short game i agree 100 percent that the golf score is made or lost around/on the green...for me hitting a 4 iron is like hitting a 7 iron there is no big difference, same swing same tempo in fact i love...LOVE my long irons i feel i have an advantage over most of the guys i play with do the the fact that i actually like to hit 3-5 irons...im 22 years of age, i work at a golf course and get to play anytime i want and for free so i play 4 rounds a week minimum as for the guy saying 10-18 putts per 9 holes is good or ideal..i laff,you never want to have a 2 putt average on 9 or 18 holes..13-14 is ideal 12-13 is good
    you just improved my point..you hit your long irons same as you short...great..and you are a scratch player...like i said MOST players who play above 15 handi..cant hit long irons...so the difference fron a 4 iron to a 7 iron is huge...if DN could hit his 7 iron instead of his 4 iron then his score would go down alot
  7. distance is relative..proof : 2006 british open another thing size shouldnt be an issure here...i think it is safe to say most of us are much larger than michelle wie and she hits the ball 300 yards...timing and tempo are the keyshitting the ball 310 off the tee, managing to hit 9 fairways and 9 greens doesnt matter if u have 35 putts..
    distance is relative if you are a PRO and can hit each iron about equal but for regular players that play bogey golf....long irons are VERY hard to hit...and hitting it with a 4 iron to a 7 iron is a BIG difference...yes within 60 yards is very important but if you have a good iron game you wouldnt be chipping within 60 yards as much..you would be putting...
  8. Its not we are all much bigger then DN or swing harder or faster. What is his problem? He can cut 8 strokes easy by hitting it 20 yards longer with his irons. Why does he play for money when he loses all the time? Get better then play for money.

  9. I think the problem with DN with his golf game is his length. I play some golf and consider myself a bogey golfer. DNs driver seems fine 230-250...but i think his irons are short. I personally hit it alittle longer then most but i hit my pitching wedge about 120-135, 9 iron 135-145, 8 iron 145-155, 7 iron 155-170, 6 iron 170-180. 5 iron 180-190, 4 iron 190 to 200, 3 iron(which i dont use that often) 200-215 and then i use my 4 wood to about 230-250if DN is hitting a 4 iron from 160 thats huge...alot of other golfers would use a 8 iron....I think DN needs to keep the ball back alittle in his stance with his irons to get a little more distance with his irons..I bet he would cut alot of strokes of his game. also 7 iron from 128? i just think he needs moreQUOTE(Tigerlite @ Tuesday, September 12th, 2006, 10:34 AM) Now that's awesome putting. Dude, how could your round be terrible after doing that well on the greens? From reading your golfing posts, it seems to me pretty clear that you usually drive the ball pretty well and you putt well unless you have a really long putt which then makes it difficult to you. Thus, I deduce that your main problem is your iron play and short game. Try this, Daniel: prior to your round, go to the range, and do not touch any of your woods. Don't even look at your driver. Start with your most lofted iron, and hit shots with it. Try to consider a distance, and then hit it to that distance. Take at least 10 swings with this club. After the tenth swing, stop using this club after you make solid contact and hit a good shot. Then, move on to the next most lofted club and follow the same routine, until you have hit every iron in your bag and the last shot with every iron is that beautiful iron shot that keeps us coming back to the links for more.You seem also to not have that much power with your irons, for instance, you once wrote that you would hit an 8-iron from 130 yards. In the desert, a shot of 130 yards should be a pitching wedge and not a big one at that. In my experience, when someone is not hitting the ball as far as they should, there are two main things happening: 1) the player is adding loft to the club, and 2) the player is picking the ball up rather than hitting down on the ball. Golf is a game of opposites. When you try to pick the ball up, you are actually hitting the ball lower. I bet the trajectory of your shots is pretty low to medium. Have you noticed that the Pros, even with a four iron, will hit the ball pretty high. Reason for that is that the hit down on the ball which causes the ball to fly higher and farther. Here's a quick tip to get this going: with your irons, when you are addressing a shot, move your hands slightly forward. By doing that, you are actually delofting the club. Another tip: move the ball slightly back in your stance from where you normally play it. This will mean that you will have more of a descending blow thereby eliminating the swing which attempts to pick the ball up. There's more, but I've written enough for now. Good luck.Excellent tips, thanks for the reminder. I've been told to hit down on the ball before and when I do I hit my irons way longer. I'm also going to try and make sure my hands are a little bit in front as well. I'll let you know how it goes.EDIT: i guess i wasnt the first one...great post and great tips--------------------

  10. dealers cut chips different by the game you play.. POKER- they cut chips with the thumb BLACKJACK- they cut chips with the index finger(pointing finger)it just takes practice...take a stack(20 chips) and just cut and stack, cut and stack..over and over again..

  11. I'm just imagining how funny would it be if the tournament director came to the table and took 4 players away to make a 6-handed table...
    how is this funny enough to put a "LOL"daniel being the camera hoe that he is enters this event after he said he would go to the seven card stud event eventhough the hold'em event was televised.....anyway..take it down
  12. Poker is not a sport bro... It has nothing to do with you're athletic ability you see fat out of shape guys sitting in chairs eating hamburgers while playing poker... Do you see how this is not a sport?
    a SPORT is not always a physical activity...mental battle is just as tough
  13. with the ESPY awards just around the corner...i dont know if they have it this year but they should have the best poker player award....they show enough of it on espn..the voting starts soon i think..maybe june

  14. who said anythign about race?You sound uneducated, probably due to lack of school, either poor, or infact very weathly.judging by your use of internet, you can afford a comp.. lets go with very wealthy, you make big huge hundy dollar bluffs,this leads me to believe you've found a lot of dollar bills yo, without any formal education,narrowed it down to A - Macaulay culkinB - Lil Bow WoworC - CoCo the chimp.i just took a guess and went with B since coco can form proper sentences, and Macaulay only plays poker n celebrity showdown
