That is a guestimate, but it looks as though Pham now has a 108 point lead over Negreanu. Wow. I remember a couple of weeks ago thinking, that DP was just one big buy in event win away from passing both JJ and DN. Well he did that yesterday. Gonna be a tight race, here's to hoping that DN, JJ and DP all make the final table of the final event. L* :D
" There are few things that are so unpardonably neglected in our country as poker. The upper class knows very little about poker. Now and then you find ambassadors who have sort of a general knowledge of poker, but the ignorance of the people is fearful. Why, I have known clergymen, good men, kind-hearted, liberal, sincere, and all that, who did not know the meaning of a "flush". It is enough to make one ashamed of the species." --Mark Twain

Not with Daniel's current attitude. What's up with that Daniel? You seem to not be taking it seriously. You can't get excited for these "smaller events" even when it's for the POY? What the hell man.I'm giving you the football coach halftime speech.....You need to get that killer instinct going. You've worked hard all year, now your going to lose because you couldn't motivate yourself during crunch time. You're better than that Daniel. DP and JJ knew you were a sitting duck and the totally took advantage.Now go out there and win that damn main event and show everyone who the best player in the world is.

Each year on the tournament circuit is a long one, so I can see becoming somewhat detached towards the end of it.It's hard to maintain consistency in poker, particularly in tournament poker. I can't blame Daniel for becoming a bit bored and uninterested after all the travel he's done lately.He'll get a rush here before the end of the tournament I know it. Regardless of that no matter what he does everyone will still support him.

Does not look good, but I think Daniel will come up big now. Never hurts to be motivated, which is what he should be now.

I totally think he can take the POY title away with him, but I think that he's got to completely immerse his head in the game and get motivated, which I don't think will be a problem because he's lost the lead. I know that I would get motivated if something that I practically had won was in danger of not coming back with me.C'MON DANNY BOY! YOU CAN DO IT!

Awesome Daniel. I'm going to take some credit for my half time speech above in post #2. Now keep kicking some ass.
