Haha! Score 1 for duck! Hoowah!

I do agree that poker is cool, though.

Ivy is good, but people seem to think he's some sort of god. He's not a mind-reader, and he does lose sometimes. Others have more bracelets and win more money. You just have to say there are a ton of good players out there, and Ivy is one of them...

I think the reason people like Ivy so much is because he's very agressive.

As opposed to someone like Dan Harrington, who's very conservative, but just as successfull, if not more so.

Okay, so you don't stare into his eyes. You just play your game. You can't adjust your game to revere or fear anyone. When you start playing scared, you're a dead man...

Being the only prominent black player doesn't hurt either, he gets that Tiger Woods swag. Plus, when compared to most of the mealy mouthed fatasses on the professional tour he comes off cooler than Jimmy Hedrix.

Paul Darden?

He isn't "ivey" successful but he is decent.

I don't think he's saying that Ivey is popular because he's black. He's saying that he is *the* prominant black player on the televised poker circuit.

Darden is still getting better, but he is good.

I am just finishing Harrington III right now. His books have made my game infinitely better.

Right now, I would agree. He had an off year last year.

Look for Ivey to climb back in it as well as Negreanu and Cunningham again.

I cant stand Negreanu, but Ivey is always one of the top players.
