Re: Norman Chad: Why?

Norman is great. The Valley of Unhappiness made me laugh.

Hellmuth in danger of going out right here. Aces in tough shape. It's a disaster for Phil Hellmuth. Has to ask himself why he didn't reraise pocket aces. Hellmuth is gone.

"And they both beat me! It was unbelievable. These are some of the worst players in the entire world over here."

It's the Valley of Unhappiness.

Re: Norman Chad: Why?

sexton was good for the beginning of the poker boom and we owe a lot to him

kaplan is the best because he is the funniest and he's a decent player himself

norman chad is not good at poker, sometimes he's funny sometimes he's not funny, but overall he's definitely the best person for what espn does with poker. he provides the entertainment value the casual player/audience is lookin for. i definitely like the guy.

Re: Norman Chad: Why?

+++ for Norman Chad! He makes me laugh.

I even watched last night for the first time in forever because this thread reminded me how much I like him.
Then I remembered why I stopped watching. All in all in all in all the time. All in before the flop has got to be the most boring thing in poker.

But the bit on What would you give up for a bracelet was good.
I liked the people saying they'd give up the cash just for the bracelet and their place in history. And then Doyle says he's a poker purist, he'll take the cash and give up the bracelet.

Nothin but love for Norman.

OP, start a blog that everyone will disagree with.

But they didn't ask anyone who would give the only honest (and obvious) answer. I'd give up my JOB!!!!!

Re: Norman Chad: Why?

The Norm haters are probably boring people to hang out with and take themselves too seriously.

Norman Chad is very good if you take him for what he is.

Re: Norman Chad: Why?

The problem with Norman is not what he says, it's how often he says it.

The Norm lovers are probably just as annoying as he is and have a horrible sense of humor.

Generalities are fun.
