People seem to be forgetting his pokerroom skin.

ding ding!

why would Dneg try to pull something over people at this point in his career?

He's a friendly poker player who uses his amazing people skills to not only gather information about his opponents play, but also to make the game more social, fun, and open/loose.

Yes, both of these things are also pretty self serving, but that's just human nature and IMO, a very poor way of looking at it. We are nice to other people because we usually expect to benefit from it somehow...this is not some trait exclusive to Dnegs.

These things are great for the game of poker, and not just in that moment but in the longterm. I guarantee DN has brought more new players to the game of poker than 99% of the poker community combined.

no debate Moneymaker brought more people to the game than anyone else....but it wasnt because of his jovial personality or table talk. Dnegs on the other hand...

Would be good if they at least had a pop up advising customers to go to their site
They can't! Apple forbids any such mention within the app.
