    Does he come across as a genius to you?

    Yep exactly, I knew it wasn't for me the one time I went to AC. I went with 2 buddies. Going into the actual area, seeing all the neon, and everything, it was beautiful. I was so excited and over stimulated. I went with like $300, stayed for 2 days, ate/lived like a king, and came home with like $1200-$1300 in my wallet. My buddies did kinda bad, and had a blast. I knew I couldn't make a living off of it when it hit me that they had WAY more fun than I did.

    I am not defending Dana White by any means, however there are people that are complete douchebags and look pretty stupid, however they are very good at some games.

    Phil Hellmuth for example, the dude acts like a 13 year old (just like Dana), but he is a great poker player.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    A lot of what Phil does is to attract even more action from people who want to beat him. If that's Dana's plan, he is super dedicated to it. Haha

    I won $1200 total playing poker starting with the minimum $60 on a cruise when I was 19 playing with a bunch of grown ass man. I became borderline obsessed after that spending my entire weekend playing online poker tournaments wouldn't get dressed or shower or anything. I got my ass beat on a cruise two years later I think lost a shit ton, stopped playing for the most part after that but last year on a cruise I did win $700 total. Mind you, I was a broke college student during all of this, I was basically fucking with all of my money,

    How many people do you think are classified as geniuses compared to those who aren't? But one can still be highly intelligent which I think Dana is.

    It's weird how something can be your whole life, and then boom, you barely even care about it anymore. That's how life works, I guess.

    I don't think Dana is particularly smart. I think he is loud, and has connections, end of story.

    Yeah I love them going on one to Cape Canaveral(spelling?) the first week in August. My family takes Norwegian Cruise Lines every time. We usually go once a summer, now that we are older is difficult to get the whole family together at a time so its always a blast. I'm one of seven and I live on the other side of the country and my dad along with my aunt and uncles work a shit ton of hours.

    I swear she's hiding two babies under her shirt and you can see the tops of their heads poking out.
