  1. I like your style - but let me ask you this- why isn't there any water to swim in at a pool hall? Also, why can't Trojan make one large enough for my Johnson? Plus, if he really was "Magic" Johnson why did he turn so many tricks? Ok last one...... why is LeBron James so ugly and what are those black marks around his eyebrows and temples - U - G - L -Y LeBron ain't got no alibi?
  2. Doyle tweets to Daniel : "Go back and play the way you used to. I know you don't think so, but you were much better...IMO"I couldn't agree more.............
  3. So funny that Daniel thinks a 120k net loss is "winning" - seems like Charlie Sheen logic to me. Now he has some new software to allow him to 30 table - Ha! Every 25-50 or higher grinder is licking their chops at the prospect of Daniel spewing a mil or two off but insisting he is playing really well........Also just wondering when Dusty Schmidt and Daniel will be announcing their engagement - his last blog stopped just short of getting down on his knees for Daniel - Surprisingly, he is also a Poker Stars sponsored player - oops did I say surprisingly Would have been great if Isild
  4. Ha ha - if the above post is accurate that means Daniel lost with JJ vs AA KK vs AA AK vs AQ and a flopped flush vs an overpair that went runner runner to a full house. Unfortunately, it is like the little Romanian boy who cried wolf - when you are constantly losing and claiming you were unlucky, then when you actually do run this badly no one cares.
  5. The weirdest thing to me is that we all know he is going to lose again Sunday but he probably feels optimistic - then of course no matter how much cash he loses (soon to be around 500k after Isildur crushes him again) he stands to lose 10 times that in endorsements. Who will want to pay for Poker VT when its headliner is being proved to be a true high stakes fish both online and on High Stakes Poker. Will EPT want him commentating when he loses more online this year than any other player?? This is definitely the one time Phil Hellmuth is way smarter than Daniel ----- protecting the bran
  6. Don't conform to the masses!! LOL Your appeal is your flair for writing the hands in an interesting but still fairly concise form. If you start using a hand converter, you will just be another poster - Keep your flair my man!!edit- damn I am too late - why nella, why?? Ha ha- your own recounting was much more interesting.......
  7. You tell me - another day another 70k loss for Daniel. Down about 370k for the year playing 50/100 - I mean really? I guess everyone who said he is a high stakes fish when he started donating 500k a year on High Stakes Poker was right, but he probably thinks he is on a 6 year unlucky streak. It is pretty bad when Mike Matusow laughs at you for always complaining how unlucky you are. Also when he owns you on High Stakes Poker for about 500k - but no, Daniel was just "unlucky" again.
  8. Suggestion on who to play - my grandma is just learning how to turn her computer on and she doesn't know how to play poker but my grandpa does - they should be about even with Daniel's 4 tabling skills in a week or two. My grandpa is very nearly deaf so it should balance out Daniel almost timing out on every table simultaneously. I really used to love "matrix" sit-n-go's on Full Tilt but there is very little chance of getting action or high volume on these tables anymore -- I think people who played video games alot when they were young have a distinct advantage in mult-tabling and apparent
  9. Kinda feel sorry 4 Joe, his site is basically out of business - Daniel stole his girl, and everyone gives him a ton of shit about repping UB. Can you imagine losing your girl to Daniel, got to hurt the ego a little bit. Daniel and E-Dog, taking women away from Sebok and Benyamine with all the hot women to chose from in Vegas - Dirty -
  10. Daniel won 85k today, so good for him. What I guess he doesn't get is that Isildur may be the best heads up NLHE cash player in history.....and the fact that Isildur was lucky to win the cooler hands doesn't change that fact - If they were to play 2 tables of PLO and two tables of NLHE, now that would be interesting. I really don't even think Durrrr would be that keen to play Isildur again if only playing NLHE - only guy I would say would beat him heads up is Ivey - and NO ONE ELSE. The Heads-Up and 4-tabling combo on top of his savant-like grasp of NLHE are unbeatable. I have always b
  11. Only thing I have left to say is I hope Daniel donates 150k to the Haiti or Japan relief fund since he obviously has too much money and just flushed 110k against Isildur
  12. He is being completely destroyed 75k down after only 750 hands. Daniel, your good friend Phil Ivey would have told you if you had asked - the only way to compete with world class cash players is to compete with them every day for years, a few weeks of preparation is not enough for someone like Isildur to whom it is just another day at the office - now maybe if you have any of the 150k left next sunday you can get him to play PLO instead of NLHE
  13. Daniel seems to really be struggling with the 4-tabling, plus he has thrown some ill-timed bluffs and gotten picked off. Would be very interested to know what he is thinking when Isildur has only 5700 behind and there is 10k in the pot, Isildur has repped a big hand (turned out to be a straight) on the turn and Daniel overbets the pot bluffing after missing his flush. 5 6 diamonds vs Isildur's 8 10 -- the play might have worked if Isildur had more money behind as a 10 came to complete a 9 J Q 10 board, semi-counterfeiting Isildur's hand from the 2nd nuts to just the bottom end of a 4 ca
  14. Daniel has almost become more of a poker personality than a professional poker player. To dump 250k preparing for a session where you can only win or lose 150k seems silly. His strengths have always and will always be that he is a great tournament player and a great mixed game cash player. He will never be a great NLHE cash game player. Doyle had a great quote about Daniel "Last year he was saying -play a small ball style, now he is 5 betting with 2-5 off suit" Doyle, PA, Ivey, even Durrrr all have their own style of play which they have a great amount of faith in, while Daniel seems to
  15. Watching a variety of High Stakes Poker reruns online and just found it awful how often Daniel and Phil pay off river bets when they are clearly beaten. Given how unlucky Daniel was during the 1st two or three seasons I was inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt, but the episodes I watched this weekend illustrated the differences between the best in the world at NLHE cash games and the best tournament players. In tournaments, alot of moves are being made and players are bluffing off big stacks in an attempt to accumulate all the chips so Daniel and PH both benefit by picking off big
  16. With Hellmuth it is the drama of whether Mt. Vesuvius will erupt or not - and most of his opponents enjoy any and every opportunity to get under his skin til he can no longer contain himself. By the way, Huck Seed is down to final 16 in the Heads UP Event High Roller Event at the WSOPE -along with Daniel, Ivey, Gus and a host of big names. I guess it just blew my mind that she would talk to a Main Event champ, a national heads up champ, a T.O.C. winner, a multiple bracelet winner and a guy who probably has the highest IQ of anyone she has ever met like he was a moron. Not to mention, his
  17. That's cool 10k hero, I wish you good luck! My point is that for someone like you, there is alot more meaning attached. For the record I like and admire Daniel and love the game of poker, it has been very good to me. Obviously, I like and trust live poker much more than online. Even with that, the local cardroom I play at which is less than 5 minutes from home, has lost alot of it's regular players in the last few months, so I have to drive an extra hour to the local casino for a regular game. Poker is a great game but the average player is just not talented enough to turn a long term profit
  18. Reading Daniel's blog about 5 potential TV stars I was very interested to see Annette Obrestad mentioned....... I have no problem with the other 4, except Durrrr probably is already a star so Daniel could have included a 5th lesser known player, but no big deal.Regarding Annette, I just don't see any appeal at all. Physically, she is very unattractive, and seems to have gained around 80 lbs in the last couple years (since the subject is star power on poker TV shows, appearance is a major consideration) Secondly, even though she has some indisputable results in NLHE tournaments, I don't re
  19. Like 95 percent of the people who are on this forum I truly enjoy watching Daniel play WPT and WSOP, like reading his blog and feel he is good for the game of poker in a way many high stakes pros are not. Having said this, it cracks me up to think about this so-called "challenge". Since it is meaningless to Daniel in terms of making a difference in his finances it really doesn't symbolize anything close to what most micro-limit players experience. It is a nice PR thing for Poker Stars and I believe he is sincere about it, but if you gave the average low limit grinder 10 grand (not even 100k
  20. Well Daniel has done the unthinkable - he has made me agree with Roy Winston!! Alot of people do wear rx glasses with a tint, would those also be banned in Daniel's fantasy world. While we are making the playing field level should we also ban online sites from paying entry fees of top notch players, providing them private lounges, and catering to their every whim? I think it is a much bigger advantage never having to go in to your own pocket to buy into these tournaments and allows sponsored players a "freeroll" while the average grinder on the professional tour would have to shell out close
  21. I haven't worn sunglasses since the 1st month I learned to play and I only did it then to help block the fluorescent lights.....oh yeah and to be able to see the invisible ink on the back of each card I marked when I had my buddy turn on a black light - funny that no one ever suspected.Come on, get over the sunglasses deal Daniel and Doyle!!! No decent player needs to wear them, and I think 90 percent of all players would agree the ones who do are a joke, but when you see the 1st day of WSOP Main Event and the insane costumes people wear (not even counting Hellmuth) what is the big deal abo
  22. Daniel, please take this advice in regards to your golf bet. Play to your strengths!! Which should be tremendous hand eye co-ordination. Why are Mario Lemieux and a ton of other hockey greats also very talented golfers - 1) they are superb athletes 2) more importantly they built up extremely good hand eye coordination from all those years playing hockey. You should put in at least two hours a day on the putting and chipping green until you are at your absolute best - this will always be your strength anyway - and it is where you will be able to shave 5-10 strokes a round. Your goal should
  23. +1If anything he would be a cautionary tale for poker players who love dice -- Kenny Tran, Phil Ivey - are you listening?I guess Ivey is too rich to ever go broke but of course he is only half as rich as he used to be -
  24. Why do they call him Mike the Mouth?? -Ha ha- your honor I withdraw the question
  25. Daniel's blog was about contrasting styles of old school vs new school tournament players........... I think T.J. pawned the bracelet several years ago, and it just garnered attention when the bracelet was put on E-bay or something along those lines. The website which currently has the bracelet is supposed to be giving it back to him but it is definitely ridiculous for someone who earned 9.7 million in tournament winnings to have found themselves in such a spot. In the last 5 years I believe he has had heart surgery and numerous other health problems but there is really no excuse. However 2/
