Chinese poker as a WSOP event
Anyone play IRC poker back when? The 20 player single table tournaments and multi-deck Chinese poker with >4 players were a trip.
Those 20 player STTs did teach you the value of position though...

I wandered into one of those by mistake. I was about half-convinced UB was rigged when I lost consecutive hands with queens full, aces full, and quad tens. Then I figured it out. I'm not very quick.

Those were awesome. 200 seats with most of the interwebs trying to get in. I made it about 80% of the time. Never final tabled as I had less than no clue about tournament NLHE back then.
