  1. Is Travis from AZ? I believe his name on here is SunDevil so that would make sense. I played highschool football against a Travis Scott here in AZ. Probably not the same dude, just curious.
    Yep, we're from Arizona.
    The guy I'm thinking of went to Westwood High School. If it's him, good for him. If not, good for him anyway.
    Oh no. Trav didn't go to Westwood. It's such a common last name so I'm not surprised if there was another Travis Scott in the Valley.
  2. I haven't heard anything from Travis since dinner so I'm thinking that's a good thing. Usually he lets me know if he gets knocked out.

    DN??? Are you sure that you have time for these updates??, I mean Travis probably needs his laundry picked up or his dog taken in for a bath.
    Hahaha!! Does that mean I get the day off? :club:
    Anyone know if Travis has ever won a tournament before?
    So far in the tournies he's played in I think he's faired alright. He's won more then a couple satilites but nothing near the scale that he's playing right now.
  3. As for me, I lost 10,000 on the following hand: I raised to 250 with 7d 8d from late position. John Phan called, Paul Phillips called on the button, and the Grinder called from the big blind. The flop came 5d 9d 10h. I bet out 500, John Phan called, and Paul Phillips made it 2000. He had 7750 more so I put it all in. John folded and Paul called which left me with 1400. Paul had pocket tens and the turn came a 5...
    That sucks DN, are you going to give us Travis updates?
    Wish him the best of luck from FCP
    Will do. :D
  4. I'll just be direct: How does Lori feel about your schedule and the fact that your poker and other poker-related commitments take up so much of your time?
    I think she knew what she was getting in to before marrying DN :-)
    It's not really for me to answer for Lori but I agree with the above. As I'm married to a poker player who is a pretty busy man besides that I've always seen it as he's working. Sometimes he'll have to pull an all-nighter at the tables or go to California for a tourney. It's just how this lifestyle works and from what I know of Lori I'm pretty sure she's fairly laid back about that sort of stuff.
  5. Hey Lori and Daniel, You know you have my congratulations! The wedding was absolutely beautiful! I'm sorry we didn't get to stay very long afterwards, we probably missed a lot of fun stuff. Anyway, I hope you enjoy your honeymoon :club:.

    sidenote: I noticed Jennifer Harman wasn't on your list did she make it too?
    She was there. :D

  7. Yo. I need some money on a site but I don't have any money in my neteller bank account so I can't deposit any money in there without being charged an overdraft fee. I was wondering if there were any other sites out there that can transfer money i.e. paypal or something like that? Basically, I would transfer somebody money on another site and they would transfer me money on neteller. The reason I don't have any money on my neteller account is because that bank is in another state and since I'm back home for the summer, I can't deposit money into that account. If someone could do this asap I would appreciate it because I'm trying to play the pieces of the pros tournament and grab a piece of Phil Ivey. Thanks!
    I don't thin paypal will transfer to gambling sites.

    AlfWhat I do like.....is the idea of adding ONE tournament after the main event....and have the tournament be only for the current year's bracelet winners....that would be cool....and would be a real Tournament of Champions.....
    Alf........i really like your idea.............
    What would be the game.........................(going along with the mass amounts of periods that seem to be popular).....................
    It would be cool if it were a mix game like the tourney they took out.
  9. What should it matter what others think of you,if you can get up in the morning and look at yourself in the mirror and deal with the type of person you are, than no ones opinion of you should matter. No one can be perfect all the time and we've all done stupid thing's that we regreted later, but if you can deal with your mistakes then no ones opinion's matter. As for quotes besides the one by Theadore Rossevelt, I also like the one "Living is easy with eye's closed misunderstanding all you see."
    Nice quote, John Lennon right?
    I think Daniel is being a sore loser. Kind of like Elway was a sore loser and Jordan etc. I can understand hating to lose and getting frustrated, I don't understand people who lose and smile and laugh about it. Daniel doesn't have to accept or enjoy losing.
    I agree with what bearshadoe said. I just think that it's also easy to get frustrated when nothings going your way to begin with. Then when you try to vent about having a rough time of it a hundred people come out and say you're a sore loser for getting your irritations out. Isn't the purpose of the blog to get into Daniel's world, feel what he's feeling? If so why the heck do we chastise him for being human? It's not like any of us haven't complained about a bad run, we've got a whole section dedicated to it: http://www.fullcontactpoker.com/poker-foru...wforum.php?f=10 Why is his complaints any worse then our own? Are we all sour grapes? Maybe. Btw what kind of robot are you that you don't get ticked off when people hit runner-runner straight-flush to beat your four of a kind? I sure get pissed when that happens to me. Thank the Lord that I don't have a million cameras on me while I scream at the computer. You're right you can't change what happens but it doesn't mean you should always just "grin and bear it." It doesn't make you feel any better, you've got to get it out sometime and that's what the blog is for. Ok, I'll get off my soapbox now.
  10. Cardplayer's commentary on Daniel's last two big plays:Date / Time: 2005-07-01 20:15:00 Title: Negreanu Busts One Log: Daniel Negreanu and his opponent were both all in preflop. Negreanu showed the Ad-Qh, and his opponent showed the Ah-Jd. The flop came Ks-5c-2s, and Negreanu had the lead in the hand. The turn paired kings when the Kc hit, and all Negreanu had to do was dodge a jack to eliminate his opponent. The river brought the 8d. No bad beat this time for Negreanu, he gladly scooped his opponents chips, and sent him to the rail. Date / Time: 2005-07-01 20:17:00 Title: The Wrong Move at the Right Time Log: It's been said that sometimes poker is about making the wrong move at the right time. Daniel Negreanu moved all in on a flop of Js-9h-8d. His opponent is Seat 10 called. Negreanu showed Qd-Jd for a pair, a gutshot straight draw, and backdoor diamond draw. He would need his draws, because Seat 10 showed 10c-7c for a made straight. The turn paired the board, 9d, and now Negreanu would need a 10 to make a higher straight, or a diamond for the flush. The river brought the 5d, and Negreanu gave a little fist pump. He doubles up on his runner-runner flush. WTG Daniel!! I hope this keeps up for ya!!!

  11. I like this quote and I thought it would be fitting to post it here. It is not the critic who counts,nor the man who points out how the strong man stumbled,or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;who strives valiantly;who errs and comes short again and again;who knows great enthusiasms, great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly,so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. - Theodore Roosevelt

  12. 6:14- "I just got lost in the casino. Went through an emergency exit to avoid the crowd and couldn't get back in. Was roaming through the halls of the employee exit and finally found my way back." -DN  This has got to be the most entertaining update thread ever  :club:  Thank you Daniel and Travis.
    I did that when I was there too. LOL. :oops:
