Haven't heard much from this kid.. wonder if he quit.

[/ QUOTE ]

He did not quit. But he does not play like someone who won a few hundred grand. He went on to finish school. He still plays in Los Angeles card clubs. But at levels equivalent to what he might be able to afford had he not won the money. Smart kid if you ask me.

Bright enough to recognize that he got lucky, and is not good enough(yet) to consistently win at that level.

So I guess you're Daniel Rentzer? And Stern sucks.

Damn, man. I used to have that exact same picture as my avatar.

Now, I have a better one.

But it might be time for another change.

i used to talk to danny every now and then. he was a nice guy and gave me a ride from the airport once too. bought some of my action in the legends main event.

i don't think he confused his abilities with that of david pham and gus hansen. i think he feels his game is strong and is a good learner, but i don't think he ever intended to play on the circuit full time. he went to law school and finished that up, and i haven't talked to him since he got into that.

look at this guy , He won the Legends of Poker in the first WPT season. Poor guy, probably another degenerate gambler who can't handle his finances. Playing 75 dollar tournaments and everything, sad. I bet though all the face twitching he does gives away tells galore to the good players.

Magriel has been one of the top backgammon players in the world for decades. I doubt you have the brain power to even approach his level of skill at that game.

The reason so many powerhouse backgammon players turn to poker, many with great success? Bigger money at a game that is easier to master.

When I saw the title of this thread, I was going to type the exact same thing. This is the guy who eliminated Hellmuth at the 2005 WSOP. When his pp7 met Phil's AQ, Magriel says in his BEST lisp ... "Off to the rayshesh!" My g/f, who doesn't like watching poker on TV, became an instant fan.

I have no idea what fault you could find with my post. Particularly since another poster went on to post very similiar points.

Hi Ray,

I can attest to below from the few times I have played with him.

[ QUOTE ]
he likes to have fun

[/ QUOTE ]

I've never seen this side of him.

But Ray Zee is RAY ZEE and I believe his read on the guy.
Besides, Sklansky once told me that x22 was a pretty smart guy.
