Re: Favorite and least favorite tv "pros".

Guys I like watching:

Daniel Negreanu - for obv reasons

Phil Hellmuth - I luv rooting against him

Mike Matusow - For whatever reason other then the fact he plays pretty good I root for him

Allen Cunningham/Nenad Medic/Nam Le - because these guys play so well

Guys I hope to God aren't at the table:

Jesus - Do you really need to take 10 minutes to make a standard cbet?

Durr - Takes too long to make a decision

Ruosso - Cause she won't shut her trap and her play is usually awful

Gold - cause he's a douche, but pretty soon everyone will forget who he is and he won't be on anymore shows

David Williams - because he comes off as a nerdy douchebag

David Ulliot - If I see him on tv that means he made a ft which means the douche is gonna make some money

Also I can't believe so many people love Hellmuth.. pretty sad that his acting like a ****head gets him ratings.

Re: Favorite and least favorite tv "pros".

After watching the WSOP pot limit hold 'em this week I have to say that I never want to watch Kathy Liebert again. I would rather listen to Vanessa Rousso's post hand analysis than Liebert's meaningless comments.

I hate Brenes so much.

I'd actually like to get raped by a crackhead just so I could cutmyself into Humberto's mouth and give him HIV.

Have you ever played poker with a Farha wannabe? I like seeing Farha getting his ass handed to him so much that I would root for Russ Hamilton against Farha.

Haha, you know, I'm not really sure. There's just something about him that really pisses me off. Maybe it's his facial hair.

I love Hellmuth though, so I think I've just sniffed too much glue.

Re: Favorite and least favorite tv "pros".

I think Jerry Yang deserves a huge mention here. I love how he doesn't even tank for a monster call with A7 v A9 in 07 Main Event. Unbelievably bad call.

Re: Favorite and least favorite tv "pros".

I pretty much only can't stand watching Humberto Brenes when he goes into his shtick.

I like to watch almost everyone else. I don't get all the Jamie Gold and Tom Dwan haters. They are good players and entertaining to watch. If you all think Gold luck-boxed his way to his WSOP win, try checking out tape on Hachem and pretty much every other winner of the main event. Gold knocked out like literally a hundred guys on the way to the win including 7 of 8 at the final table. He also outplayed poker God Allen Cummningham, as well as the highly respected Paul Wasicka if you recall.

Same goes for all the Jerry Yang haters. He got a few lucky breaks along the way but steamrolled the final table. How can you fault a guy's play when it works out and he didn't exactly get hit by the deck. Sheer aggression did the trick.

Would you like to point the hands where Jamie outplayed Allen Cunningham. As I recall, and I'm not gonna watch it again, he seemed to escape the traps Jamie set out with Jamie having set/straight and allen top pair type of hands. Jamie got the minimum chips out of Allen every time. Or are you referring to him outplaying him when he called Allens TT shove with KJ, hoping to be in a flip or a 60/40 dog, and then won that flip to knock him out?

Re: Favorite and least favorite tv "pros".

I'm a bit amazed you're all so hung up on Durrr's voice. The guy plays amazing poker, for all I care he could talk like Jar Jar Binks and I'd still watch him play.

Could i be you all don't like Gold because he was a nobody who walked out of the venue with $12m and you didnt?

You dont win the WSOP without knowing the game inside out, so good on him. He might not be as good as some guys, but at least he can say proudly i won the WSOP main event. More than all of us, so let's stop slating him.

He's also a legend to watch, i love the way he bullies his opponents by chit chat, innterrogation is the way forward now it seems.
