  1. Well the games usually last about 4 hours or so, intense stuff.........we try and play at the highest level possible (that doesnt mean folding AK pre-flop to a raise) usually there are a couple of games per night (7am job as any poker player knows) so i think personally that the slow structure blinds system is longer, harder but alot more fun and ALOT more skillful.
  2. well basically, I like to play with a large number of chips in a home game - like 1500 chips and 5/10 blinds to start.

I find it very strange that these two players (Daniel Negreanu and Phil Hellmuth) have never met heads up in a major televised tournament - and what a match it would be. Phil and Daniel have gone "beyond the felt" and expanded beyond just simply playing poker. Daniel and Phil have both shown themselves to be writers of journalistic quality in both diary-style entries (see cardplayer) and poker analysis. I find it very interesting that
  6. So you gamble with money by playing poker and then get on Daniel's case for spending money that he has earned (in a way!!) and bring up charity?! Piss off, his job his money. I actually cant believe you somehow brought G8 into this forum. I hope you get bad beats for the rest of your life.
