I'm not too fond of Deeb. I know a lot of people like him, but there were a few comments he made to an amateur player during the televised WSOP main event that left me a wee bit uncomfortable. Why would you criticize an amateur on TV?

But, in the bigger picture, its bad for the game. As one of the big faces of poker its your responsibility to be welcoming and accommodating. DN has talked about this on a few different occasions in a general sense. If the biggest and most public names in poker are painting the atmosphere as a mean and unwelcoming, it doesnt help bring new people into the game. .....
I dont know which comment jules is referring to, nor do I have an opinion about deeb either way.

There are all kinds in the game... but in my book, Deeb embodies more positive traits than most public professionals.... and he's not in it to angle shoot, sell a book, a website or brand of liquor or hamburger... that dude is the real deal who's friendly and inviting more times than not. How many "pros" who aren't under contract can you say that about?
