I know this has been beaten to death, but 2plus2 has a thread going on about this. I seem to remember DN once commenting on high profile players such as Hellmuth, himself, Ivey, Dwan, etc. I think he said something like that Hellmuth isn't worth nearly as much as what people think and he did a ranking of what he suspected for like 5 or so players including Dwan, himself and Hellmuth. I was trying to search for it and couldn't find it. Does anyone else remember that thread? I was going to link it on 2plus2 b/c I thought it was pretty insightful since it was actually from DN. This is the only thing I could find, but, it's not the one I was thinking of. Thanks. http://www.fullconta...u...36056&st=202plus2 thread:http://forumserver.t...ml#post31984818

Good blog from Phil Galfond yesterday.http://www.philgalfo...-little-advice/

There are a few handfuls of people in poker whoíve shared with me their financial status at some time or another, and others who Iíve heard about their financials second hand. Every single one of them had less money than the public thinks. Iíve never known someone to have significantly more than their perceived bankroll. Keep that in mind.

SORRY BROJ, I DON'T HAVE THE TIME OR THE INTEREST TO SIT AROUND GOSSIPING ABOUT PLAYERS NET WORTH. I DIDN'T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT THIS STUFF WHEN POKER "CELEBRITY" WAS AT IT'S PEAK, MUCH LESS NOW. IF YOU WANT BETTER INPUT THAN THIS, I SUGGEST YOU INVENT A TIME MACHINE, I'M SURE SOMEONE WILL GIVE A **** IN 2007

Yup. Great way to start a thread.I think it is fairly obvious that the richest "famous" players are the ones that were playing high stake cash games when the poker boom started, and are still playing high stakes cash games now on a regular basis. Ivey, Gus, Doyle, etc.

12. When menstruating, use a product that right for your menstrual flow. A tampon too big can irritate and develop fungus. A product left in too long can cause bacteria or fungus build up. Products can be changed at least every 4 hours. Except when sleeping, they can be left in for the night

Does anyone think Jennifer Tilly is actually good? I've heard she is, but it's hard to say imo

I remember the comment that you are referring toDaniel took five players including himself and discussed their net worthHe put Ivey way at the top - himself second and put Hellmuth at the bottomI don't remember who the other two werethe main point was that Hellmuth doesn't make nearly the amount of endorsement money that he implies and that he's not a regular in the biggest games in vegasbut also take into account Daniel loves yanking Phil Hellmuth's chain too

I was at the 2007 WSOP and asked phil laak about her famous hand where she flopped a full house and barely bet it and he said that she was nervous and had a brain fart on tvI also asked him about the book that implies that her ladies event win was rigged and he said that was nonsenseI saw her make a pretty tough call in an event where she was among the chip leaders and a guy raised her all in who had her covered and she called with a straight but not the nut straight and the other guy was semi bluffing the turn with a flush draw and laak said "they're always underestimating her"is Marco Traniello good? She's really into Poker and she's been talking it with laak for years now I bet she is pretty solid - having a lot of Sam Simon's money I'm sure doesn't hurtLaak also told me that he makes his money playing cash and only played tourney's for fun and for the publicity
