Ivey is a sick man! I'm surprised they got down to 9 so fast today though. People shoving fairly deep stacks like they were playing a $10 tourney lol.

Oh man, Ivey has a ways to go.
But, if there's any one man that can pull it off, he would be the one to do it from a short stack.

The last WSOP final table displayed a lot of crappy, underwhelming, uninteresting poker and the whole system of having to wait to see it months after the rest of the tournament is over is a friggin' joke.
That being said, I am skipping looking for any info on this years WSOP and will take a fresh look once they start televising it.

From what I read,there were some complaints that some players were going all in or stacking the chips most of the time in the early stages.BTW,I'm going with Jeff Shulman to win the bracelet and top price of over $8,000,000.

The final table was actually pretty interesting live, especially heads up. The hands they showed on ESPN were boring because they just squeezed in all the bust-out hands. I wish they would concentrate more on the final table instead of wasting 8 hours on the day 1s like they did last year.

Speaking of heads up,the Heads Up Poker Tourney on NBC was fun to watch. Also,Poker after Dark on NBC at 11 p.m(if you have Direct TV or Dish Network) is interesting to watch.

I had the DVR set to record the whole series of the Heads Up, but it didn't record the finals for some reason. Poker After Dark is better when they have the cash games. Nothing beats High Stakes Poker though on GSN.
