I really don't understand why everyone loves to bash Chris.
Sure, he isn't the best out there, but I tell you something he's in the very short list of poker players who are profitable ones. People always say "He luck boxed the WSOP
Now, first off - EVERYONE has to get lucky in these tournaments to win. End of. No one can win on skill alone. So, now we have that out the way, you still say how much he sucks.
Lets have a look at his live results,
2003 WSOP $10,000 Main Event May 2003 1st $2,500,000
WPT Bay 101 Shooting Stars $5,500 Main Event March 2004 2nd $200,000
2004 WSOP $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha May 2004 10th $21,000
EPT London £5,200 No Limit Hold’em September 2007 17th $24,480
PokerStars WCOOP $10,300 No Limit Hold’em September 2008 6th $139,635
PCA Main Event January 2011 11th $130,000
National Heads-Up Poker Championship March 2011 2nd $300,000
Now, explain to me why these results are so bad? Are you telling me you would classing yourself as a bad player and lucky donk for cashing in these? I don't understand your logic, it seems you are like everyone else who wants to jump on Chris, makes no sense. Everyone always says bad stuff about his play and how lucky he is etc. If these was anyone elses results, no one would say anything, why is it CHRIS everyone says it about?
Now, lets go to his online earnings.
So, UNLIKE many good live players he has a positive ROI% with nearly 100k in prizes. So yeah he must run good and be lucky to turn over a positive ROI with 2500 tournaments played, right?
I have a question for you. Do you even know why you think he sucks or is just a luck box? Are you like a sheep who has to follow what everyone says and actually have no idea what your going on about? Is it because you want people to reply to say "yeaha, I agree" just because it seems normal for everyone to bash Chris.
Lets also not forget one thing, you most like 80% of other players who call chris this and that woulden't even be playing if it wasn't for him.
So please...christ people like you annoy me. What do you want from him? He's a profitable player over a good sample of live/online tournaments what the hell more do you want? Do you want him to be a losing player online like most live "pros" or what?
e's not a great poker player, not even a good one, just a lucky one. JMO
< < As for that comment. Yeah I can imagine you could teach him a few things or too eh? Not even a good one, just pure luck. Hell, why not put all your money from savings/house or whatever and play him over a decent sample size and bust him? Or not maybe? I'm guessing you would most likely back out because even if you played 100k games he would still be catching his cards to bust you or something?
How on earth can a part-time player (probs smallish stakes like me) dare have the cheek to even say someone playing the stakes he does he sucks and isn't even "good". Don't even say his play confirmed what I always thought, you maybe saw a few hands of his whole life of playing poker lol.
