    Here I am again! Hey Daniel, what Bankroll (amount of BIs) would you recommend to start playing Live MTTs of 50-150 players? The structure is pretty standard, maybe a little bit Turbo.. Thanks!

    Oh, one more about Live poker.. What do you think is more profitable and better to start a carreer.. Playing Online where you can put in much more volume + you have low rake, or playing Live where those 2 things don't happen, BUT you have an environment with many MANY fishes playing higher stakes?? Thanks again!

    Hi there, Kiddo! Do you, either by yourself, or by Poker Stars, consider create a "full video course" from that mission you've entered, from a dollar or so, to $10,000? You've left that in the middle... That would be nice!

    I know it’s common for professional players to be staked in high-dollar events such as the Big One for One Drop tournament that kicked off this year’s 2012 WSOP. What I’m curious about, though, is whether players have a tendency to play differently when someone else’s money is at risk. I’m also wondering about whether or not you think that it’s appropriate for players to adjust their styles when they’re staked since the people sponsoring them probably banked on both their table presence and playing style.

    When you play in a social setting outside of a casino, do you play any differently? For instance, if you were to go to someone’s home game, would you play with the same intensity that you ordinarily play with at a table lined with professionals? Or, would you adjust your game and temper your aggressiveness knowing that you could simply re-buy all night? I guess what I want to know…do you view poker as the means to paying your bills even when you are in a social setting?

    Hi Daniel !!!
    First of all I want to say I'm in love with you !!!
    I can't believe you are going to read my message !!!
    and best of all: answer my questions !!!

    I admire the way you talk, I mean u talk honestly and without fear.


    Some of us, before entering the online poker world, did some research to see where we were going to deposit our money. If it was all a scam, if poker sites invested in some sort of security, if there were rigged bots from the own site in tourneys that collected the players money... Considering that mobs were related to gambling from the beginning i thought online poker room owners weren't exactly Mother Teresa of Calcutta... all kinds of stuff came to my head...

    I have played in PokerStars and didn't find anything irregular. I think it's a safe site.

    After the Absolute Poker Cheating Scandal where there was a player that could see hole cards, I began doubting if this happened in the old administration of Full Tilt Poker too.

    So I started to check the profit highstakes graphs of some players in www . highstakesdb . com

    In a normal profit graph the player should have ups and downs like this one on pokerstars:
    0Human0 on Pokerstars - Poker Player Ignat Liviu

    Your highstake profit graph on pokerstars:
    KidPoker on Pokerstars - Poker Player Daniel Negreanu

    Gus Hansen's profit graph on Old Full Tilt
    Gus Hansen on Full Tilt Poker - Poker Player Gustav Hansen

    And here is Phil Ivey's highstakes profit graph on old Full Tilt poker site:
    Phil Ivey on Full Tilt Poker - Poker Player Phil Ivey

    Isn't it suspicious that he never had big downswing in all those years? ... someone that likes playing dices in casinos...

    Considering that Full Tilt Poker was a Ponzi Scheme I think we have the right to be at least a little suspicious about if someone used his account to play seeing the hole cards.

    I know he's your friend and that you defended him in the scandal.

    Do you think that something similar to what happened in Absolute Poker could had been happening in old Full Tilt Poker?

    Do you think Howard "The Professor" Lederer, Ray Bitar or Chris "Jesus" Ferguson would be capable of doing something like that?

    Have you ever thought about opening your own poker site? It seems that latterly there are many players who have been looking to gain much more by investing and making their own sites profitable. Is this something that has ever crossed your mind?
  26. #101
    Hi Daniel, I'm a big fan of you and very happy for this opportunity

    You told once that you are at the beginning of your poker time. Often invited to big rounds wast. Until you recognize that you lose most. And that's why everyone wanted to play with you. You are now a brilliant player. I think the best of all.

    What was the decisive factor with you, that you have not poker left off, rather you helped to become a brilliant shark?

    You've made ​​the leap from average players and fish, to a great poker player. What important tip (mental?) you can give us on the way? To help us, from losing players to become a bit of money winning players?

    Many thanks. And sorry for my bad english
    PS: if I ever have the fortune to sit with you at a poker table. After I've lost. I would like to drink a beer with you

    -. You talk a lot in the tables, is to get information, but also makes it to distract the other players.

    -. What is the best strategy to try to find out what cards your opponents have.

    -. Tournaments which the player in 2013.

    -. You always have the same strategy for playing live and online.

    -. What do you think of the current and future poker.

    Im opedipus bitch, the original balla.
    (1) Where's the value in playing on shows like PAD/High Stakes Poker that is chalked full of pros? Do you, as well as all others at the table, feel they actually have an edge in that game? Are some of the pros just incorrect in thinking they have an edge in those games against other top pros?

    (2) Do you do any study/review/etc to keep your game improving? If so, what? If not, why not?

    (3) Who gives you the most trouble at the table (live or online)? Whether they just run insanely well against you, or play really well against you.

    (4) Worst downswing of your career? How did you handle it?

    Thanks for doing this.
  54. #129
    Daniel, here are some more questions..

    1. You talk a LOT at the Poker tables. Is that only to extract information from the other players, or also to distract them?

    2. What 'strategy' do you believe is the best to have the most accurate read possible on your opponents?

    3. Which events are you planing to play on 2013?

    4. Do you have the same strategy when playing Live and Online, or is there any difference in your game?

    5. What do you think about the Poker world nowadays, and how do you think the game will evolve in the future?

    I think casinos disallowing players based on anything but cheating is a very slippery slope. I don't think its the casino's responsibility to bar players from casinos for being shady, unless there is evidence that they are cheating at poker.

    As for the EPL, I thought the ethics committee was a good idea in theory, but overstepped their boundaries when it came to people's personal finances and loans or debts they may owe.

Also, I wouldn't sacrifice my skill level to focus so much on the media/business side of the game. I would have made sure I practiced and studied the game on a regular basis. I am doing that religiously now, and it's super important to continue to learn from your peers, even if they are half your age.

    Daniel, you've always been pretty hard on Hellmuth's abilities (in a frank way). Do you think he's adjusted his game significantly in the last two years? Why has he had such remarkable success these past two WSOP's-- what do you detect about his game that has changed? Thanks in advance.

    There are so many -EV aspects to playing on TV... why do it?

    What do the players get offered to play on TV poker shows?

    I mean, you're not actors (well...), but you are the cast of the show, so is there an hourly wage you earn while filming?

    Are (Were? *sigh*) the TV cash games and shows like Poker After Dark & The Big Game rake free?

    What is the greatest challenge to the poker community right now?

    What can we, as players, do to improve the poker world?

    Your thoughts on Open Face Chinese Poker?
    It's important to be a part of the TV shows to help promote the game. I feel like I can help in that regard so it's important to me that I do that.

    We were paid for HSP and other shows but that's not always the case. $1200 an hour is about the standard rate.

    All rake free.

    Biggest challenge is legislation in the US.

    As players, we can reach out to legislators and let them know we want the freedom to play poker at home in our underwear!

    I love Bob McCowan! I'd happily play him Consensus is that sure, with more advertising options as well as it being easier to get funds online, that would certainly create a bit of a boom.

    Also, are do you often "level" people by lying about what you think your opponent has, or are your poker soliloquies pretty much just you thinking your actual process through out loud?

    Finally, what are your thoughts on young hot-shot online players? Anyones in particular you have respect for? Any specific thoughts on nutsinho (it's my understanding you guys used to hook up a lot at 6m tables on PS)?
    Well, even when I do call out people's hands, I'm essentially breaking down ranges and when I call out a specific hand it's because that is the most likely hand in their range based on my read. As you have seen, sometimes I'll call out a player's hand, but call anyway even though I'm beat! The reason for that is based on the pot odds I'm often getting, and even though I think I'm beat, I'm not 100% sure. So for example, if I'm 70% sure they have it, but the pot is laying me 5-1 odds, I still would call the bet because I think bluffs represent 30% of their range which is still profitable in the long run.

    I don't really use lying there actually.

    I have respect for TONS of them, just to name a few Tom Marchese, nutsinho, and Phil Galfond. I've discussed poker with all these guys and actually had a very valuable training session with Nutsinho, Marchese, and Bill Reynolds in Monte Carlo a couple years ago. Was very helpful.
