Not really nine outs because lots of cards on turn would have had shak drawing dead.

The odds of antonio hand was 82.73-17.27
That is stronger then holding AA vs KK SAME SUIT preflop

That is a sick sick beat and in many ways shows the difference between WSOP and WSOPE. How many guys in this field would have played this hand the way Shak did? In the WSOP thousands would have.

Beer costs 4.40. Still waiting for someone to buy me one. Might have to ask Blom if my tremors get any worse.

Just ordered a coffee. Waitress brought it over, I dropped 40p in change on her tray thinking that better than nothing. "Excuse me sir, coffee costs 2."

"I thought they were complimentary?" I'd been getting them for 1 the last few days anyway.

"No, that is just for our customers".

She took the coffee back.

Solid bankroll management by The Empire. I guess those roulette tables just aren't making enough.

Eventually he called, simultaneously pleading, "Small pair?"

Timoshenko turned over {A-Spades} {K-Clubs}, though, and Blom was thrilled.

"I'm good!" he said,
flipping over his live {Q-Spades} {10-Clubs}.

The PokerPROductions people are filming, will air on ESPN in 2011.

Blom's been turning down interview requests.

I saw one of the PokerListings guys ask. Blom looked uncomfortable and said "Sorry, I, er, don't do anything." He then pretended to see someone he knew and walked off about ten feet away and continued chatting to his friend.

Wow, just wow.

So my guess is that they would have a pretty good idea if there is other "groups" in the nosebleed area of poker. It is kinda hard to get away with unnoticed.

I live in Sweden and i pretty much know every player worth their name (friends of friends etc.) in my own town so i'd imagine a high profile like blom wouldn't be that friggin' hard to pin.

Jimm, we don't want you begging for beer or insisting on free coffee. Shoot some more vids, note something that hasn't been noted by more qualified people or stfu.

lol ok. i'm not defending esfandiari. i'm just saying he's had worse beats ON NATIONAL TV than this so what's the point in breaking down his odds? He was obv complaining about a bad beat at a bad time in a big tourney.
09-25-2010 , 04:48 PM

He doesn't look like the kind of guy who is interested in public opinion a lot and therefore an interview might be pointless.
