This is a discussion on What do you think about this quote from Daniel Negreanu? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; "You could be the 5th best player in the world, but if you are seated at a table with the top 4 players in the
I think it's a very generalized statement. It's going to depend on the type of game, the stack sizes, and how much of a difference there is in skill levels just to name a few things. I'm pretty sure top 20 could hold their own against one another given equal footing.
Daniel Negreanu , wants to say in this , which always as a player we must have our privilege as a player , not there that feel less player , always be powerful wherever one is and always think big, I would withdraw from the table? Rather it would take notes because I am with master of poker
You have to remember,these guys have all the time in the world to sit around and talk,,,,,they can't always be right,,,and sometimes (like all of us) we talk out of our azzes,,, Nobody should feel bad about being 5th best in the world in anything,,,, Nobody.
I don’t think that the top 20 poker players are very different in terms of game level. But I would prefer to switch to another table in order to maximize my profit.
Daniel did not say anything new in this regard. I see no reason to discuss this.
Who is saying is number 1 and who is number 5 hard to say who's the best unless your playing the same 5 guys day in and day out,a few weeks of that then you should be able to tell who's better then who, otherwise anyone can run well and beat anybody but over a few weeks there should be a clear winner
Play poker with that mindset and you are a loser before your backside hits the chair. There is no best player because even the best have off days and I would take my chances with them any day on form or off.
re: Poker & What do you think about this quote from Daniel Negreanu?
His point, that table selection is extremely important, is a very true one! If you only play with people that are better than you, then it is simple logic that you’ll lose money in the long run.
What’s interesting to me is that this is a point that many very visible/famous poker players seem hesitant to make. A few years ago, there was even this sort of general sentiment among pros that “bum hunting” or seeking out worse opponents to play against was somehow unethical—which I never agreed with.
If you want to win in the long run, you have to play against people that aren’t as good of a poker player as you are, plain and simple!
This is nonsense in saying. It turns out that if Negreanu 5 is the best in the company of top high scooters, does he look like a cheater? I believe that all players in this situation are equal in status.
Interesting because it helps you keep thinking about improving day to be the best and is applied in anything in life, not to fall into a comfort zone on achieving certain goals, the need to achieve them look better and better every detail, without have distractions to reach the ultimate goal and be the best
I think if you consider yourself the fifth best player in the tournament, then you already have a loser thought ...
Think positive and play your game and do your analysis, previous wins don't title before head's up.
I don't think is that way if is the 5 best player one of them will be the sucker loosing or ending in last place. But if you run lets say 5 different games the sucker will not always be the 5 best player, so I don't really think there is a sucker!
