Forget The Moneymaker Effect – Can The 2014 November Nine Have Any Effect At All

Wicked Chops Poker evaluates the promotional value of the 2014 N9ers.

The categorization of whether any given person or situation is either “good for poker” or “bad for poker” is always a fun topic of conversation, right?

Is Daniel Negreanu weighing in on the war in Gaza good or bad for poker?

Is the World Poker Tour running a small buy-in tournament at the same time as the WSOP Main Event good or bad for poker?

Is PokerStars coming back to the USA good or bad for poker?

In all of these examples you probably had an opinion. The heroes over at Wicked Chops Poker asked a bunch of their friends who from this year’s November Nine they thought was good, bad or just simply “meh” for the game poker.

But WCP doesn’t just make a list and expect you to figure it out for yourself. They break it down with their biting brand of biting wit, like they do here for chipleader Jorryt van Hoof.

Jorryt van Hoof – We actjually got some real sjupport for van Hoof. While we don’t see an upcjoming “van Hoof Effect” on the horizon, one friend at an operator described him as a “sicko” and someone he even once considered signing.

Sure, his name sounds a little too much of Joran van der Sloot for our liking, but otherwise, he’s fine. Within the so-called pokjer “media” circles he’s got some fans. Pjopele love his online game. But he’s neither here njor there for us, so he’s in “Mjeh” for now.

So give Wicked Chops a little love and see who they and their poker pals see fit to be good, bad and meh for the game.
