I mean, the point of a "level" is to make people mad.

lol NVG.

1) Saying Daniel is busto is just comical. He's not and it's not even up for debate.

2) Yes, Daniel is a tiny little overcompensating douche bag. These things we know. If you acted like a grown ass man instead of a fanboy following him around like a little puppy it wouldn't have hurt you so much to discover this fact. Have some dignity.

3) Really op, you are upset because he was kissing his girlfriend? Get a life. If Daniel wants to take his girlfriend in public where all his "fans" can see him kissing her in an attempt to throw the scent off the gay trail then that's his business.

also...

I use to play with Daniel practically everyday in Toronto back when he was a nobody playing in the underground and hustling snooker. The guy is like a woman. Very emotional. One minute he's your best friend, the next he doesn't want anything to do with you.

If he's got depression, or some other social anxiety disorder, whatever, ya know? He's got OCD, and a few other problems, but who doesn't. There is only so much you can take, and when you get hounded all the time, he's bound to ignore you, or whomever.

When he played the WPT in Niagara Falls, he was in a sour mood. I was at his table we chatted for a bit, but he talked down to me like i was some peasant from the old days that he surpassed. It did not matter to him that just because i ain't on TV, i don't make money. That's just his attitude. If you are not on the same level as him, and he's not in a good mood, you are just another peasant to him.

He's got a dark side, like all of us. Loves his asian whores, weed, etc.. but come on guys, he's human. I think he does a lot better job then most putting on a good front for the poker community. Most ppl think he's really cool and nice, but we all know better.

Visualize THAT, NVG.

Its nothing he can do lol.
if he can't talk about important things then he should shut his mouth about useless bullsh*t. Maybe you didn't understand my post I wouldn't care if he couldn't comment about this if he didn't have a comment for everything else.

It's almost as if they're just normal people.

Of course, we shouldn't see them that way, because it's their job to be friendly, and I know any time I have a job to do, I give it 100% at all times and never ever slack off, as I'm sure everyone else does as well. Everyone except DN of course.

Not a great player imo (too many times way of the mark and not enough confidence at the table, too passive, and would make moves only against weaker opponents while strong players would push him around in cash games all the time)

I am a nobody in poker world comparing to him, but this is my opinion.Pokerstars keeping him their main face is a little annoying too. Isildur makes a lot more sense already.
Oh my God......

Bearing that in mind, like I would for any celeb. from any sport, I'd give them a pass on a situation like this and realize they like us also have good days and bad days. And the more autograph's you get asked for in a day, the more likely you are to be hoping for a day to just be able to sit and eat, play a game of cards, see a movie etc, w/e, without bother or interruption, to be left alone just like everyone else in the room.
This is exactly how I feel.

Stu Ungar likely had an IQ that dwarfs that of Negreanu and that of any other top poker player, but was still a complete degen and despite having won an estimated 30 million $ from poker was broke all the time.

There isn't nearly as much correlation between intelligence and wisdom as you'd think unfortunately, and for all we know, DN is out there betting insane amounts on Hockey games or what not.

Isn't this guy a Fantasy League fanatic or something?
Degen gambler ----> Sports fanatic -----> Busto. Is this really that unlikely?

Edit: Before people pull their hair out I'm not saying it's the case, I'm just saying it's very very far from impossible.

Hey OP, what gives you the right to interrupt someone in the middle of a conversation?
Daniel Negreanu I am disappoint Quote

No real reason to be a fan of DN, imo. The guy is kindof a doucher. His personality at the table is very condescending, annoying, and know-it-all.

I used to be a fan, but now I view him as almost Helmuthian in the sense that he built his legend slaying amateur players who he hand-reads amazingly. But at a table of sharks, he's the bait.

I lost a lot of respect for him after his appearances on HSP. He ran into some bad beats and nasty coolers, but the way he tilted was so amateur it was nuts. Slamming the table, going on full tilt mode in the middle of a hand vs. Elezra when a scare card came out, finding a way to talk about how good-but-unlucky he was in every interview ... it was pathetic.

That, and I was real disappointed in his Power Hold'em Strategy book when it came out. I was so excited for it, and it turned out to be a low-level, amateur-style read. Boo.

Kinda lame of me to heap on some guy I don't personally know, I realize. But everyone's got an opinion, and that's mine.

proud DN hater here...the OP does not surprise me in the least. Even saying "he plays cards well" is a stretch. It brought me great joy to watch him suck at the WSOP again this year.

What's the best thing about reading NVG?

1. Laughing at all the idiots.
2. Realising they use their money to play poker.
