First of all, let me preface this comment by saying I think it's incredibly generous of DN to have this protege promotion.He has better things to do with his time and with the value of what you learn with DN, it's got to be an experience of a lifetime.I hope he continues this protege concept but I really wouldn't be surprised if twice is enough for him.It's maybe too late for you now Anthony, but if you are as good as DN said you are at tournament NLHE play (and I have no reason to doubt his word), then I would have spent the last three months basically learning razz* and the other games with the intention of joining those WSOP events with the goal maximizing the chances of winning multiple bracelets (of course this would be subject to getting the approval beforehand but it doesn't rule out a parlay starting with NLHE events). Sure, no one has the obligation to teach you anything about other games, but heck, if he's in a good mood with a few hours, why not? Also, if DN is a bit too busy, just ask another pro, that would be kinda funny, don't you think? People already know who you are to some extent and it would be a laugh for other pros to take some credit with a bright student.There are plenty of anecdotes where a talented beginner took a bracelet, and these events have somewhat smaller turnouts... I'm not ignoring the fact that they may be packed with great players.After the WSOP, you are on your own, lol. Enjoy the ride!* I used razz as an example because it's a relatively easy game, you have more of a shot at a bracelet by reading the razz section of "Sklansky on Poker" a few days before the tourney than with any other form of poker. In fact, I think I'll give it a try on my first WSOP trip.
