I find this totally ridiculous. I hate watching this guy. He is a total moron who if he said the wrong thing to the wrong person would get his head handed to him. Same thing with Helmuth.

You notice that Helmuth, Matusow and clowns like them dont talk sh** to someone like Jeffery Lisandro who looks like he would rip their heads off.

I like to watch players who are not clowns for the camera and show some class. If I want to see clowns I watch the circus not a poker game.


Dislike watching:

Helmuth, Matusow, Layne Flaak, Jamie Gold, Hevad Kahn


Enjoy watching:

Allan Cunningham, Ivey, Antonious, "Sick Call" Kenny Tran & Jennifer Tilly (strickly for the great cleavage

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.
DAnziM,
Could it be everyone dislikes Gold because of his non-stop talk, chitmchat and interrogation? It is not that Gold won it is he acts like an ass and always has to be the center of attention. His stupid pathetic whining at Sammy begging to split the pot on HSP was painful to watch. Especailly after he was so cocky at the start of the hand.
Again it is not that Gold won its the way he won now thousands of toehr jerks who don't know the game as well as Jamie are trying to play his annoying style. Not good for poker.
Shut and and play poker.

I love Roland de Wolfe.

If it weren't for him, I'd never know not to play a hobgoblin out of position.

This.

And he's not a good player. At all.

He plays **** and hopes to get lucky. I hope he's broke within 6 years and living in a cardboard box on hollywood blvd.

Re: Favorite and least favorite tv "pros".

Favorites:
- Negreanu, entertaining because he talks a lot and always seems to be in a good mood and enjoy the game he plays.
- Mike the mouth, talkes a lot of crap but does it with "a smile" without being a douche (imo anyways), which is why I think it's mildly entertaining to watch him play.
- Ted Forrest, this guy impresses me, besides his great poker abillities I'm not sure why but there is something I like about him.
- Antonio Esfandiari, very active in the table talk and has a fun and friendly attitude.
- Gus Hansen, I guess mainly because he is a dane like me which obviously makes him slightly more interresting for me to follow, and his sometimes loose plays are entertaining to see.
- Erik Lindgren, I kinda like him, not sure why.
- Barry Greenstein, cool guy all around.

Least favorites:
- Chris Furgeson, is really boring to watch.
- Johnny Chan, of the few clips/episodes I've seen with him he has not been very entertaining for me to watch.
- Todd Brunson, same as the other two.


I cba to write more names although there are certainly a lot more in each category.
I can see I judge mostly by how entertained I am by them rather than how impressed I am.

Then Durrr rudely gets on his cell phone to find out about his horses in the 5k. Nobody cares about your horses and it looked like the directors told him a couple times to get off the phone and he did not oblige quickly.
totally agree with this post...he does have that little annoying effeminate voice...he is my absolute least favorite

Hellmuth and Matusow's "annoyingness" fit them, and is hilarious. When Daniel comes out trying to "stick it" to Matusow on HSP, he comes off like a little prick b*itch.
