Re: ***OFFICIAL WSOP SWEAT THREAD***

In every sport there is the good, the great, and the legends...

Phil Ivey and Phil Hellmuth are proving that poker is clearly a game of skill, what are they the luckiest guys in las vegas? they are legends of this sport, like Ronaldo in soccer or Jordan in basketball

hats off to them

I speculate Ivey will win POY and announce a major sponsorship deal after the series is over.

What was the Hastings story? I tried looking it up, but couldn't find it. Also, what time does the FT start?

Hastings spoke for about 30 seconds about the hand and the tournament while Ivey just kind of stared at him. At the end of the story, all Ivey could offer was, "Bad beat," before Hastings finally left the rail and headed out the door.

Yes, I think we've stumbled on the answer; everyone else has access only to half-cards!

I know Tommy Vedes has bets vs Ivey with FT/cashes incentives, not sure about the structure/amount though
