Some of the best one liners ever. Love his comments on Kirill. 2 queens "west hollywood" great stuff. He does talk like he wears his boxers backwards though.

Can someone get this to Vince?The Game is - No Limit, Texas Hold'emBy Al SpathHearts begin to pound, sweat begins to bead on several foreheads as the TV lights glare into the faces of the poker worlds newest and most cunning final table competitors. The non-stop, ever changing, pressure packed action continues to unfold slicker than an episode of CSI. The tells are cleverly disguised from our weekly living room investigative team, and then it happens: Vince Van Patton shamelessly announces - Daniel Negreanu has picked up a monster hand (pocket fours). What the hell could he be thinking/smoking/or drinking? Monster Hand? Get a grip Vince; have you been playing in to many Hollywood home-games or what?

I love the way this jerk off makes up his own language about the cards. Pocket 8' being called octopus not "Snowmen."

He is super super sexy. Ahhhhhhh. He makes me feel like a teenager again. Anyone know if he is married? I would love to have his e-mail address.

I take it he is not the best poker player in the world. However, I understand why he was hired. He has a polished look and sound and his commentary is indeed quite entertaining. I could care less if he can play or not. That is not why he was hired folks. Remember, he is an actor that plays poker. Not the other way around.

Believe it or not, but VVP actually finished like 13th or 14th in a recent major tournamnet. Mike Sexton played in the same tourney and finished behind VVP by a couple players.

Ok, the comments are outrageous, but the objective is to make the play exciting and bridge to the average (fishy) home player. Sexton is the expert. Vince is the Public Relations alter-ego. Think of it this way: Sexton is on the poker side, "pass me a coffee type" and Vince is on the marketing side, "two drink minimum and wear a toga type". Yeah, good players cringe at the comments, but the result is a tide of new players and I can live with both. Hire a writer and don't forget to use the classic "The last time I saw this many 'Bad Hands' was the the Shoplifting Convention in Vegas!" In short, more poker and better material! Aside from that, good job so far.

Vince Van Patten is great. Mo Town, Snow men, Sigfried and Roy, Acey Deucy, etc. Good god. This man is fantastic and so fun to listen to. He and Sexton make an excellent team. Now go lose your life savings at pokerstars, you naysaying jackasses.

Hey all...I don't know anything about this guy except that my roommate told me he's the son of Dick Van Patten. Anyone know if that's true? I was just curious.

why are all of you making such a BIG deal over this guy? hes a color commentator. thats it. who cares. just watch the damn game and be entertained instead of always having to find something wrong with someone. hes fine at what he does. sometimes funny, and sometimes lame. i happen to think hes pretty good, and theres no reason to get red in the face about anything he says, geez, you sound like your in a political debate

He seems to enjoy Mike Sexton's company and the game in general, but listening to his commentary makes me believe he has little clue what he is talking about.

My L.A. friends tell me he's a better commentator than poker player. That should tell you something about this guy. But you know what, give him credit. He has some coin of his own. His old man has all of his 8 is Enough money willed to him. Shauna is his sister-in-law and the only work he has to do is go to poker tournaments. Not a bad gig.

Anyone who does not like Vince must be out of their mind or related to Norman Chad. Vince is one one of the main reason ppl prefer to watch Travel Channel's WPT over ESPNs coverage of the WSOP. Lon McCarron is a worthless zombie who is programmed by the same person who made Stuart Scotts glass eye. Vince's kid game "a little acey deucy" and his off the wall random relations of hands to britney spears make WPT the best poker show out there.

He has never claimed to be a great poker player he is very modest and seems like a great guy I love what he does for the WPT.

If Vince knows a cutesy nickname for your cards it's time to fold.
