Negreneu had a fantastic WSOP in 2006. He was way up. Cunningham was player of the year. Ivey was a little off this year, but he is a winning player, point blank.

Say what you want about Negreneu, but he always brings the goods. His poker mind is fantastic. You don't have to like him, but you have to respect his skills and winning.

Ivey is who I would like to focus my kind of game around but Negreanu is awesome to watch. I haven't seen a mind like his since Stu Unger and thats saying a lot...

Unger was a poker tragedy, but addictive personalities and genius often get attracted to the wrong things. Dude won millions in poker and gave it all away with drugs...

There is a movie about him it always comes on HBO called the Stu Ungar story. The guy from the Sopranos plays him in it. I have every WSOP ever on dvd so ive watched him play a ton of times.

I mean in 97 he was broke, a friend loaned him 10K to enter the ME and he blew everyone away to win his 3rd ME. That will never be done again.

The only one's who could tie Unger would be Chan and Doyle I believe.

Unger won the ME 3 times, but he did it in fields of 300 or less. Chan and Doyle did the same. With the large fields out there now, it is virtually impossible to win back to back.

I rented it from Blockbuster when it first came out, I'm not sure if they would still have it to rent. It's a great movie, Michael Imperioli was the absolute perfect cast job.

I believe Raymer would have done it in '05 if kanter doesn't hit his "miracle" flush on the river...

He went out in 14th that year I believe and would have been a big chip leader.

Raymer would have had a chance. He finished between 24-27. If he hit that card, he'd still be a medium stack, but he would have had a chance. The way Hachem played, he was the best player on the final day. Raymer played well, but he didn't get as lucky.

No, Hachem got lucky with his Q-7 and survived his all-in.

After that things got rolling. before that he was the 2nd shortest stack I believe.

I am back from AC. Donkeys galore. I have plenty of stories of idiocy. My gf won $350 playing 5 hours at the $1/$2 tables. My friend Mark won $800, my friend Christian took home $500, and my buddy Tony won $2100 playing 27 hours of $1/$2 at Trop, Caesar's, Taj, and Showboat.

I once mocked 2 4 suited before the flop. Turns out, had I stayed in the hand I would've made the straight flush, and there were A LOT of action and money in that hand.

This was about 2 years ago, and I'm still not over it.

I go in with anything that can possibly hold a straight or flush. But it depends on what the blinds are. Cause you can have a 2 and 4 in your hand then to your surprise two fours come on the flop.

I finished 171 out of 530 (give or take) at the WSOP Circuit. I didn't see any top top pros, but it was easy to tell who the good players were. I was pretty sure I wasn't giving off many tells, and I was doing my best to stay very consistent. I got outflopped a lot, but I made some good laydowns. Doubled up very early when I flopped 2 pair with Q-J against a guy who had A-Q (he pushed, and I had to call). Made some good plays, but the blinds caught up to me. I lasted 7 hours with a $4000 starting chip stack. Busted when I tried to steal with A-9 and was pot committed against a big stack with A-K...
