Beef in the Twitter Streets
His joining the team hasn’t gone without controversy, however, with a Canadian Poker streamer Vanessa Kade having this to say:
“I dunno why this has disappointed me so much. I think because the site has clearly been all about trying to be the best version of itself, I think in my mind it was the future of poker in a lot of ways.
Then this is just a huge step backwards.”
With Dan replying with simply
“Quiet hoe, nobody knows who you are”
Best known for surrounding himself with women
Whilst the internets biggest Playboy might be cool for some people, to others the way he treats women is pretty questionable.
One of his most notorious stunts that embodies his lifestyle was when he launched a naked pornstar off a roof into a pool, breaking her foot in the process.
Some people are saying that his misogynistic lifestyle should not be rewarded with sponsorships in the poker world.
On the flip side of the coin, he has a huge reach and can help market poker to a huge audience.
Another upside for poker fans is maybe we get to see what he’s made of on the poker tables. After his Joe Rogan podcast where he stated he won all his money from Poker, even though his poker skills are very questionable.
This is how you $200 Million (Definitely not from his Dad’s embezzlement scandal) constantly overplaying hands and bluffing into the nuts. I think I could teach someone to play better than this within a few hours personally.
