Daniel Negreanu – he’s well respected among the poker community. He’s played in the biggest games in the world, and although not a regular in those games any more he at least takes his shots. He is a bit of a work horse, and has multiple side projects all taping into the poker world to make a few dollars. Another smart move, you might as well get the gravy while the gravy is worth gettin. He’s also the type of tv personality that makes it interesting to watch – you hear his thought processes on hands, you listen to him call out the opponents cards, he laughs and jokes, much more entertaining overall than the standard sunglass/hat wearing couch-pro. At the end of the day it’s about marketability. It pays to set yourself apart and define your niche. He is the ‘nice guy’ in the poker world.
Here’s three reasons why I like him:
1. We have the same birthday. July 26th.
2. He likes the Buffalo Bills. Wide Right.
3. He can put together complete sentences and talk intelligently about any poker game. Stay in school kids.
