Hesp!
Quote:
From PokerNews:

Hesp has only $2,207 in tournament winnings with his only recorded win at Napoleon’s Casino & Restaurant in Hull.

Playing in the Main Event has been a goal for many years and this summer Hesp decided to make that dream a reality. “I’ve never played a big competition like this but it’s one of the things I’ve had on my bucket list for a while now,” he says. “This is my fourth time in Vegas, but I’ve never played in anything like this. I came out last November with a bunch of lads for four nights and played a bit of poker in some small tournaments in local casinos and didn’t really do any good then, but I just thought I’d take a shot in the World Series of Poker Main Event and here I am now.”

Haven't been following Hesp at all since early yesterday. Is he actually playing well or is he just catching ala Darvin Moon?

Guess mostly Hesp is fun to watch because he's relatable Although of course it's nice to watch really experienced players too ...

With only 22 players left though, maybe it'd be nice if the cameras showed a little bit of everybody, especially some of the players who maybe haven't gotten too much air time yet?

Between Ott and Pisane, people are just paying him off because he's been known to barrel with air.

He's not playing well per se but he's not playing awful and the pros just keep paying him off with ridiculously bad hands.

Agree. There still are players we haven't seen any of yet. Messina is one of the big stacks and we've almlst none of him so far

Kind of insane we have not seen NJ online grinder Scott Blumstein play one hand and yet he's now 3rd in chips with 35 milly!!!! He's a really good and only came out to vegas to play the main.

I haven't seen Hesp barrel every street with air but he has been called multiple times in that exact scenario

Meaning, he has been doing both.

Also, props to DNegs (who I don't love--uh oh, risking a ban) for calling Brat out on the constant interruptions.

comparing hesp to catching like Moon is wrong imo. Hesp was picking on Lamb a lot yesterday and has been 3 betting and getting folds post flop.

Does Negreanu dislike Hellmuth? Kind of getting that vibe, or is the banter just friendly needling?

Why are they forcing this pace of play issue on us? I don't think it's been an issue today.

Did Hellmuth just cheat on his wife? He got a little sweaty after that high five.

Salas and Ruane are both pretty slow, but neither as bad as folks they've had in the past. The pace issue Daniel was talking about was Zvi Stern, who was taking like minimum 90 seconds for literally every decision.
