It was 1987, poker secrets were still secret. No discussion necessary.

Re: LOL level of play final 3 at 1987 WSOP main event

Announcer at the beginning looks like he could be Bradley Cooper's dad.

Interesting that at the 3:15 mark the announcer calls it "a 7-card stud no limit game."

Also pretty cool that they introduced each of the 153 participants prior to the tournament start, and they dump the prize money on the table out of a raggedy cardboard box.

If you were a player in 1987 you'd be considerably worse than them. Poker like any other game or sport evolves over time. Dumb thread

The play in 1987 is probably all relative.

I disagree.

Pretty good coverage, considering no hole card cameras. The interviews were actually interesting in retrospect, like Doyle talking about the young players learning the game and the benefits of being an unknown, referring to a 21 year old Howard Lederer at the final table .....

lol, now THAT I can take as sarcasm .....

To be honest, I only did the fyp because, as an old guy, it took me a while to remember what those things were actually called.

Thanks for posting the picture......

Get the delorian out boys! If we go back and stop Howard Lederer from throwing down his student financing funds on this WSOP he dosen't become a degen and nobody losses their FTP dollars.

I'd like to hear about young Phil. Obviously he created a persona and marketed himself. Was young Phil Helmuth the same poker brat that we know today?

Re: LOL level of play final 3 at 1987 WSOP main event

there's no need to go that far. the other day i watched the first episode of 2003 main event coverage. there was literally not even one hand played properly, the defending champion from 2002 was a fish and everyone else was too, doyle brunson busted in a way that would be shameful for a recreational player on 2015

Come on - you're better than that.
I expect a certain level of curmudgeonliness to your posts and that one just doesn't have it.

I like how the announcer starts out by saying "each player paid $10,000 of their own money..."

Yeah, that went the way of the walkman.
