I actually respect neilly quite a bit. Despite his mistakes he has an amazing work ethic and a really good attitude. He also does have some impressive results in tournaments. He is a great example of someone with very limited brain power who can succeed in poker by working really hard and staying positive. Almost everyone else that is successful on LP is very smart or at least has above average intellect. Neilly seems like he might be the dumbest person on LP. I would be surprised if his iq was above 90. I mean the guy might even be clinically Mentally Retarded. Neilly is working with much less upstairs than everyone else but has actually accomplished a lot more than many other LPers. Of course he did go ahead and flush most or all of those successes down the toilet by playing in games he shouldnt have, but that doesnt mean he wasnt a good poker player in his own game.
We can learn a lot from how hard neilly grinds and always seems to keep a positive attitude despite getting hated on nonstop, being perpetually broke, playing absurd hours in poker, having the intelligence of a 2 year old down syndrome child and constantly trying to pay off debts. im curious how far you guys would go if you made forrest gump look like albert einstein.
