    How close are you to poker greatness on Facebook?

    Despite the long and rich relationship Druff and I have had over the years, he still isn’t one of my Facebook friends, or even 1 mutual FB friend away!

    But I learned today that I am one such degree of separation away from this year’s WSOP Main Event winner, John Cynn. And here’s proof, but with that connection’s name hidden to protect his identity.

    Besides connections with Druff or Brandon, is anyone else here so Facebook-close to poker greatness? A winner of any well-known high-buyin event, i.e. $10,000 or greater, would qualify. If so, post proof here with the appropriate measures to protect the identity of any intermediate person to such a poker god (or God-damn luckbox).

    Cynn has been popping up in my people u may know lately.

    Personal cynn story: I got in a 10-25 NL game at like 4am at the Rio I think 3 summers ago, cynn was in the 1 seat. Didnt play long after I said to myself "I feel like some of the biggest current poker freaks in the world are in this game"

    Ive known Alex since before he had any success playing poker, and was playing $1 pokerstars tournaments and wed trade buyins, long before he started binking shit.

    Funny I know this was a little inside joke with you and some other forum dipshits like willie, but truth is ive known Alex for years and well before he had accomplished shit in poker. You may think your cool on this forum Alex, but careful you dont trip over yourself being a total Wiesel for a cpl lol's on this board.


    (i'd keep trolling uber if I were you, instead of someone who hits back, your better at it)

    I'm fb friends with a guy that rolled a 1k BAP that I was invested in. I threw in like 60 bucks for the sweat. I did think the guy was a helluva poker player though and I was positive he was gonna bink something big. Then he rolled ofc (easy marks SFO)

    Years later he comes in 2nd in the Colossus for almost 400k. Finally got my 60 fucking bucks back. Gave it right back to him to run it up, easy mark SFO

    I could probably get Nolan on radio.

    He's friends with Brandon and Jeanne, and he an I sometimes interact on Twitter (usually in a positive fashion).

    I did have a bizarre phone conversation with him during the whole Jaclynn Moskow fiasco, but eventually I determined that the whole situation was a convoluted mess and I didn't want to be in the middle of it anymore.

    Nolan would be a great radio catch. Like hearing his old stories.

    People! People! I said ‘poker *greatness*’, not mere poker celebrity (cough cough Nolan Dalla). And, also, proof using a screenshot of Facebook page was asked for (or GTFO).

    As for Druff calling Nolan, perhaps instead he could try to get ahold of John Cynn during a show and get around to ask him how he knows the mutual FB friend connecting him to me. I’d give Druff his name in confidence to ask John about him, including any stories of crazy or notable behavior by this mutual friend. This mutual friend was a bit of character back in day when I practically lived in the Caesars AC poker room to get and keep a Seven Stars card. But perhaps he’s mellowed with age or Cynn hasn’t known him that long.

    Nolan is a typical, whiny, limousine liberal.

    Who cares about John Cynn

    So he won the main. He won the poker lotto. Why are you throwing his name around like he is some huge catch to be friends with?

    Might as well change this thread title to How many porn stars are you FB friends with. 90% of poker players are scumbag degenerates who would steal your last $5.00 after binking six figures.

    Sorry I find this thread useless

    If Druff can get him on the line during a radio show, he should ask Nolan if he would make a motorboat sound using a body part.

    Bet not many in the community remember “Tales from the Felt”. That was back when Card Player magazine was not only relevant, but a must read.

    Hey, oh! The poker degen network is alive and well! Learned today that I’m one FB friend away from the quite entertaining Live At The Bike regular, Israeli Ron.

    It's not facebook but just the same...

    On the twitter I am friends with @ToddWitteles who is friends with @DanDruffPoker who also follows @Pokerfraudalert so I am essentially 3 degrees away from this famous forum.
