As if being from Canada is so much different than being from USA. And even though daniel hasn't lived in Canada for years.

I like daniel this just irks me.
and he's supposed to say he's american? or that he's from las vegas? lol

This entire post is so stupid it boggles the mind. Explain how jungleman is tv marketable right now in this point in time? Exactly you can't, and where exactly should Daniel say he's from when asked?

You seriously must be developmentally disabled.

Its nice to see all the people that actually take the time to read Daniels blog post..... Hes clearly states what he is saying in the first couple sentences. FWIW, Daniel is right due to the fact that poker in North America has a way bigger market and televise more than anywhere else in the world. I think he is saying that they are the best known players right now. Is Daniel "jungleman12" Cates even old enough to play in the states?

Poker is a game of incomplete information. Poker Players like to solve problems. Let the chips fall where they may.

The way it is written definitely suggests more than the fact Daniel is assuming Blom is Isildur1. It'd be a hell of a lot simpler if dropped by and clarified what he meant.

This blog just shows how little DN knows about poker players today, how can you possibly not have Phil Galfond in your top 5 players, 25 and under list?

Also, 100% NOT Jason Mercier >> 'tourny specialist'...Let's see how well he does once he stops running good in tournaments!

IMO in no particular order...
durrrr, phil galfond, viktor bloom, scott seiver and jungleman

"The list I created is based on the following criteria: They will get plenty of TV time and people will like watching them play for various reasons. Each has something unique about them, whether it's personality, or even the way they play the game."

So he's suggesting Blom will get a lot of tv time? Other than at the WSOPE, where will this tv time come from?

Surprised Scott Seiver wasn't an honorable mention. He was v good on the PS Big Game.

I think he saying that Viktors game is more interesting than the Galfonds and Cates. Why do people always take Daniels opinions as facts? Hes only making a personal assumption.

Negreanu is probably as well connected and informed in the poker world as anybody. His opinion isn't absolute fact but if he suggests Blom is Isildur1 then it entirely possible he knows something we cannot because of the people he knows and talks to and a regular basis. Of course he could be just guessing too though

When the 'assumption' is not very accurate.. 2+2 posters will comment on it. It's a perfectly normal thing. GarthAlgar you come across as not use to or unaware of this. I think your in the wrong place if this bothers you because this is what this poker forum is all about.

Bit of a random comment dude, I wasn't even remotley close to saying or even giving the impression that I had a 'better understanding' of those players then Daniel Nergeranu.. so wtf??

If you're willing to bet that DN has played all those people i listed then so am I. I'll lay you 2/1 on anything upto 2k that DN has not played with Daniel Cates (that DN is aware of).

What are you talking about? In you're last post you refer to this person Viktor Blom, and you pit him on your list? So your basically agreeing with Daniel and making your own "not accurate" list. I really dont understand where your going in this thread. Do you think Viktor is Isildur1 or not?

LOL!! Scroll up dude and re-read whats been posted, seems like you've just outsmarted yourself!

You said:

"Why do people always take Daniels opinions as facts? Hes only making a personal assumption."

I replied to this comment with:

Sorry Bro, you know poker and the high stakes poker scene and Daniel doesn't!

People come on here and say why not this person, why not that person, then get all pissy when told its a matter of opinion.
