    Daniel's world of fun

    In the wake of Joe Hachem's recent comments that the game of poker is dying, Daniel Negreanu has penned a post entitled: "My Vision for the Poker World".

    Taking the stance that the key to poker's success is a "collective effort", Daniel suggests that pro players should engage in a symbiotic relationship with their goals and the "greater good" of the game.

    Essentially, Daniel envisions an ecosystem whereby the game is "fun first and a competitive endeavour second."

    Moreover, he believes poker should be "a world where players think about what's best for everyone first, understanding that in the end they will benefit from that as well."

    Daniel certainly has a point when it comes to making the game more attractive for recreational players; however, some will likely feel this is an impossible dream when money is on the line.

    I like Daniel and I think that response fits his personality. Hachem on the other hand, I have little respect for, and honestly if he were to play at a limit I could afford I don't think I would avoid him. I think he is a very good player, but little more. And as far as his opinion of the game of poker dying, tell him to go talk to the Texas Dolly, or even Hellmuth. Poker is thriving. And will not die until cards no longer exist.

    Daniel Negreanu is the most funniest person on 'Poker After Dark' but while he plays a strong game, he does play good, but on some hands where he bluffs he makes the people fold their 100% win hand, I like that for how he plays but I perfer Doyle Brunson or Phil Ivey as my main 2 idols in the game, aswell as Phil Gee, JC Tran, and a lot of other strong players @ World Series @ ESPN

    Daniel's head is in the clouds, unfortunately. Poker is always going to be money first, people figuring out that it doesn't have to be at the expense of the community is the key.

    I could be wrong about this, but I believe he also tipped so poorly after he won the wsop main event that they instituted a min tip the next year.

    Never been a big fan of Joe Hachem. I heard Daniel making fun of his "One Time" chants when all in.
