Poker Twitter Gets A Radical Honesty Makeover

Fresh off an epic poker twitter feud in which neither party seemed to have any issues letting us know what they really thought, professional poker player Cate Hall has recently been discussing applying the the principles of Radical Honesty – a fringe philosophy of using absolute honesty when interacting with others, regardless of the personal or social consequence it might have.

Inspired by this approach, we decided to filter some of 2016’s best poker tweets through our patent-pending Radical Honesty Converter device and find out if it could reveal their true meaning.

Poker Twitter – Radical Honesty Edition

1. Up first we have WSOP Main-Event Runner-Up Gordon Vayo using the presidential election results to comment on his Main-Event Heads-up performance…

2. Speaking of the 2016 WSOP, although Sam Greenwood’s critique of Antonio Esfandiari’s Main-Event commentary was anything but subtle, we wanted to see if the Radical Honesty Converter could offer a more succinct interpretation…

3. No stranger to brutal honesty either (at least his version of it), Cate Hall’s twitter-feud counterpart Mike Dentale also got his turn in the Converter, with some fantastic results…

4. Speaking of fucking yourself, we wondered what the Converter would make of newly-unemployed poker-media bad-boy Martin Derbyshire’s apology tweet…

5. Although he and Phil exchanged twitter pleasantries and remained the consummate professionals we’ve all come to know and love, we were curious if there was some Radical Honesty hidden within Andrew Lichtenberger’s LuckyChewyPoker announcement

6. Of course, what conversation of conssumate professionals would be complete without an appearance by the one and only Mr Phil Hellmuth? To be a little honest ourselves, we gotta admit being concerned about the Radical Honesty Converter’s ability to handle the White Magic, but it seems our worries were unfounded…

7. Although we feared our own inclusion in the output of this Jamie Kerstetter conversion, we remained undeterred in our mission to bring you the most honest truths from Poker Twitter 2016…

8. The people’s champ, the one and only Dr GTO himself, Joe Ingram must often ride the fine line between being a gracious host and telling it how it is. Thankfully, the Radical Honesty Converter does not experience human emotions and thus had no such problem while processing his take on William Kassouf retiring Ike Haxton….

9. A former people’s champ turned PR professional, we could hardly contain our excitement as we waited to see how the Converter would handle Daniel Negreanu’s recent take on the upcoming 2017 PokerStars changes…

10. And finally, never one to shy away from an honest take, Doug Polk managed to confound the Radical Honesty Converter and show the rest of us how it should be done in 2017…
