okay, we are down to the final 3 tables of the maine event. Joseph Cheong is the chup leader. The only big name left in Michael Mizrachi.

I started playing in freerolls tournaments recently. For now I haven't won too much but I am trying hard. There are thousands of players in each freeroll tourney, and some of them have far more experience than me. I like playing in Horse tournaments, because I know a little about each poker variation and I think it is a good way to improve my analitical and strategical skills.

I also read some famous poker players blogs such as Daniel Negreanu or the legendary Doyle Brunson when I have some spare time. They offer plenty of interesting advice concerning how to play the hands in poker.

I have been watching the main event episodes. Has anyone else? After seeing members of the november 9 playing I am pulling for Mizrachi and Candio at the final table.

I haven't followed the WSOP this year for the first time in a while since I stopped playing poker earlier this year. Is it the Grinder at the final table or one of his brothers? The Grinder won a bracelet this year too right? Good world series for him if he has made the ME final table too.

Hansen finally won a bracelet in the heads up event at the WSOPE a few days ago, beating Ivey along the way. Phil Laak won the first event there for his first bracelet and Ivey made a deep run in the ME along with Blom, better known as the guy everyone thinks is Isildur1 lol. Looking forward to the TV coverage.

Some of the winners have turned into pretty good players. Like Raymer and Hachem. Moneymaker,Yang and Gold suck though.

Eastgate and Cada have bright futures, although I prefer Eastgate.

It will be interesting to see how the Grinder plays it. He is 7th in chips to start it off. Last year Ivey was way too conservative at the final table and let himself be picked apart.

Those high stakes players have a hard time to be too arsed for tournaments, even WSOPs, last year Ivey was clearly bored at the final table, I mean a 10k$ buy-in is merely a blind at his normal stakes...

The last episode showed the perfect example of the donkey-ness of this main event.

19 players left and Candio raises with 5/7. Cheong looks down upon pocket rockets. He just smooth calls.

Flop: 5/6/6

Cheong bets about 1.5m. Candio raises to 4.3m. Then of course Cheong goes all in because that's all players know how to do these days. And like an sbsolute idiot Candio calls. He had a large stack no need to risk all these chips.

Turn: 8

River: 4. Candio hits the straight and starts yelling like a bafoon. Terrible deicison rewarded by giving him the chip lead.

Donkey play at its finest... but not surprising in the main event.

I would be joining you guys, but I can't play poker here, well, not with money anyway.. Poker is ILLEGAL in Norway. It sucks, and it's stupid imo. But it's our stupid government trying to prevent a gambling addiction, so they ban it instead. Just like they try to prevent people from becoming alcoholics by demaning earlier closing times at bars, sky high alcohol fees and preventing people from buying alcohol after 8 pm weekdays, after 6 pm saturdays, and not at all on sundays (since all supermarkets are closed). LMAO

And yes, we do have a "nazi government" other illegal things are cigarettes/tobacco adverts, alcohol adverts and political adverts.

Quite an interesting November Nine WSOP main event final table for once... Some young aggressive players to make it interesting. WSOP player of the year Lamb obviously got lucky but you got to love his style, impressive how he could build up his stack without having to go to showdown. Chipleader Heinz is solid so far and his aggressive play gets him good action.

Wishing for a Lamb-Heinz headsup now, with deep enough stacks there should be some good action.

Also, nice coverage by ESPN, that 15 minutes delay with hole cards is really more entertaining for the casual fan, wish they covered more events that way.
