I used to watch but like most people just lost interest after a couple of years. Wonder how long ESPN will keep devoting all of this programming to it?

Great tonight...hats off to their producers in creating more drama....if you can't get into a game where the low man at the table comes back to take on the top chip leader in heads up then you just don't like this show......

If you are an Ivey fan you should see if you could look that segment up. I am not a big poker fan but I know who Ivey is and loved the piece they did on him. They followed him around for something like a 24-48 hour period (as he flew around the world in his private jet) and gambled at different locations. He would walk in to a casino, play craps and walk out 20 minutes later with a few hundred thousand. Guy has the "it" factor for sure.

Yea, he gets a Million put into his account by the casino, goes to the craps table and within 20 minutes pays the Mil back and has 1.5 mil of now his money. He lets the interviewer throw dice and loses half of what he just made. Its just sick the guy can call ahead just about anywhere and say "Loan me a million dollars so I can gamble it" and it happens, no question. They then fly to, I believe its Morocco, but change their minds mid-flight and head to Amsterdam. Must be nice...

I have DVRd every episode this season, it was fun to watch. Try to learn what I can from it, but its not like you can get a whole lot out of what they show. It would be almost unwatchable if I didnt play, at least uninteresting. It is kinda cool seeing what hands people play and watching someone get bluffed out of a hand. Plus with what Moneymaker did back in '03 is an inspiration to anyone who plays. For those that dont know, Chris Moneymaker won a $40 online tournament that earned him a seat at the WSOP, which he went on to win. This guy was not a pro, didnt have to have the $10k buy in, and has the most coveted prize in the sport. Poker is awesome...

The kid that won it apparently had someone fronting him the $10k buy in for a 50% stake.

$10k for $4 mil+ ain't too bad of a return.

That's not uncommon in the WSOP. Stu Ungar had someone front him the 10k for a WSOP tourney back before he died. He used to be a gazillionaire and of course he gambled it all away, and spent the rest on hookers and cocaine. But he got someone to give him 10k, and he wound up winning the WSOP again...then spending the money on hookers (who shot him) and cocaine.

It's actually an intriguing story. At the WSOP event I'm talking about, he wore these sunglasses and his nose looked collapsed because of the damage the coke did to his nasal cavity.
