Do opinions change?
I was watching a very early WPT event on Pay TV here in Australia
and was interested when Freddy Deeb basically called Gus Hansen a muppet (now he didnt uctually use that term) by saying that Gus played badly and he he would like to play cash against him every day. I wonder if Freddy has changed his opinion some 5 or more years later.
Has your opinion about a pro poker player changed over time?
For me its my opinion of Phil Hellmuth I mean used to think he was a great player (I mean the guy has 11 WSOP
bracelets) but now seeing much more poker on TV I have little time for him as his antics take so much away from his game. I believe great players not only play well but also act with class. Erik Lingdren, John Juanda, come to mind from current player as well as most of the old schoolers like Doyle and TJ.
