Let me make this clear so you don't mess up again.
I respect the kid. I think he has done a lot to add more interest in poker. I think he has bit off more then he can chew with these challenges. His ego is getting in the way along with people thinking he's God. Have you ever watched one of his sessions? Watched some of his plays? You can put all the numbers out there but he's more of a luckbox then anything else. So you can pull stats out and show everything he's done since the beginning but right now he's on a losing streak and his luck has run out...for now. Will he come back from this "losing streak"? More then likely. But until he's around for a few years and has done more then win side games, I'll say he's an average player with a lot of hype. Is that wrong? Would we be having this dispute If I was talking about Phil G or Ziig? I don't think so, people don't care about them, they ignore what David B has been doing online and focus on guys with "hype". The stereotypical "internet poker" player. The person everyone wants to be, the kid whos fresh outta prom and living the dream. That's great, but don't tell me he's one of the best in the world or that he's even in the top 10.
Now, we can agree to disagree. But understand what I'm saying and don't let your love blind you.
Ever heard the term short term luck is king,long run skill is key?
Cause even thou this is a massive downswing he is on,its still a downswing.
I agree with one thing thou,that HU challenge is probably just some ego trip.
But he is still the online pokers highes earner,he has probably played more hands then even the great Doyle Brunson,so what more does he have to do before he is just a luckbox(witch btw is a insane statment)?
Hell i dont even percive durrrr as a likable person form his numerous tv apperances but calling him a luck box,and saying lets wait and see is just stupid imo.
And for the kicker.
Durrr´s profits from 4/1/08 7,2M(including his downswing,and he has been playing the noise bleed a lot longer then a year) 7,2/100
Zigs profits from 4/1/08 -980K(yeah thats minus at the noise bleeds in the last year) -3,8/100
David B profits from 4/1/08 1,5M 2,05/100
OMGclayaken profits form 4/1/08 3M 7,86/100
