5/5 up usually isn't as far as I know

In my opinion that journal entry made him look like a nit.

"Look at me... I'm filthy rich and can buy into a baby no limit game for $125k!"

Good for you.

5/10NL is hardly a baby NL game. If I recall, it's the biggest NL regularly spread at the Wynn. Additionally, as it is uncapped and at the Wynn it plays bigger than a normal, capped 5/10NL.

It actually made me wonder if he took up drinking again. After all buying in for ridiculous amounts probably sounds good after lots of drinks.

For a guy who buys in for $125k it is.

Everyone is such a Daniel hater. It's funny what jealousy does to people.

I like him a lot. I just don't like what he did.

As Yarney pointed out, for a pro tourney player who works for the Wynn, it's the best game in town.

It was an amusing post but very nitty. This makes me wish that NL game had a cap so you don't have a table captain turn into a table bully.

Uncapped NL games are one of several reasons why I will play mostly at the Wynn in the future. I view them as a huge advantage because when stacks get deep, I play much better than most opponents.

If he didn't buyin for 125k then no one would be talking about it and thinking about going down there to play w/ him. It sounds like a publicity stunt
