i understand if someone says he wont change his lifestyle after winning a million, but why not take another million for wearing a shirt? i bet earlier or sooner we see him signing a contract with a site. just tactic.

This is SO fair ... working hard your whole life and then you become an millionare, the american dream for sure. Not like durrrrrrrrr and s**t , becomming a millionare at very young age and beliving you can own the whole world.
Call me jealous but i still think that independent economy at very young age de-illusions you from the REAL life and REAL happines.

Darvin is making his game out of the table, and i think he is doing very well. Being the only amateur and chip leader everything points to him. If he wins, every poker labels would like to see him carring their symbol in the skirt or on the hat. I believe that, if he wins, he wants to show that it is possible for a regular amateur player to win the WSOP. It happened before, but all others become "pro" players, and Darvin just dont want to.
I admire his humble nature. I think more people should take his lead as an example. A million dollars (minimum) definitely WILL make his life VERY comfortable out there in the sticks and boons. But he's not going greedy and snagging up every offer that's thrown at him, because he JUST DOESN'T NEED ANY MORE MONEY! Now THAT's class. Me, I'd personally snag up every single dollar anyone would want to throw at me...but who ever said I had any class??!!

He will feel really stupid if he pulls an even worse move than Dennis Phillips did last year,when Dennis was the chip leader at the start of the main even final table,and within 5 hands was one of the shorts stacks,i mean i understand a million is alot but it can go fast,and if he did sign with lets say full tilt he could profit millions more just for wearing shirts,he may soon regret his descison
