Who else immediately went looking for more footage of Persson after they saw him out talk Phil Hellmuth in that heads up match?
Keep inviting Eric to the show. He's exactly what televised poker needs - Someone to talk a lot and liven things up. Makes it much more interesting to watch.
Persson is the best thing to happen to high stakes cash games in a long time. Nobody enjoys watching hooded up maths kids say nothing for 4 hours.
This guy is like Tony G but with muscles, how he got to Hellmuth will always be legendary
This guy is GREAT for the game! When you have poker royalty laughing and 2nd guessing themselves you know you’ve truly done something.
This table talk can get EP in to trouble, but it’s so fun and entertaining to watch.
Eric looks like that beginning boss villain you’ll probably see again at the end of the video game
We need more guys like this, he makes the games way more fun to watch.
I’ve never really watched poker, but man the intensity that Eric brings is unbelievable. He makes the game exciting from a viewer’s perspective.
I gotta say that if I get to choose an announcer it's gonna be Gabe all the way. He knows he is not the show and hence economizes with his words, thus let's us enjoy both the tension of the game and the table talk. And when he speaks he's spot on what's going on. And in a calm and clear voice at the perfect volume. Kudos, Gabe!
Patrik cannot believe EP. This is the most I've ever heard him talk or laugh at a table.
“I’m like a superstar the world just don’t know”
He is pure entertainment indeed. Not many ppl around can bring Dwan like that into talking and Ivey into smiling in the middle of their hand. The only problem is, pros will get used to it fast and start to easy read. There is a reason why most of the best players around are sitting there with a pokerface on.
Persson is definately a welcome addition to the poker world. People like him and Tony G really add something else to theses lineups.
Persson is great for poker!! Poker NEEDS characters like him!
Have Eric and Daniel Negreanu ever played together? If Dan is in a talkative mood, it could be really fun to watch.
We need Eric back on the show this guy is hilarious.
Poker used to be played like this. Before television. In saloons with gunslingers and normal joes alike. The witty vs. the intelligent. Drinkers vs. the gamblers. Getting inside of your opponent’s head was a strategy to even the playing field. Respect to Persson for using that strategy. It’s fair game. Always has been.
Table talk really gets into the minds of all players. This dude was dialed
What a great energy, he had all the pro players on tilt second guessing themselves
