lol what kind of odds could you have gotten at the start of the series that Viktor would cash in the $50k PPC? Or even play in it at all?

Evens. And he would've been roughly 5:1 to hit river one outers.

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

Damn, I think the 50k would be better to commentate once down to the last two tables - seen plenty of these 1-2k NLH tournies...

Afaik actions starts left of the dealer and each player in turn can either fold or bring in for at least the smallest chip in play. Once someone brings it in you continue as normal.

In some instances the lowest chip will actually be less than the initial ante though. For instance, level 3 and 4 the ante is 50, levels 5 and 6 it's 75. Then the 25's are removed for level 7

Fullflush and Isildur in the final table would be epic.

Just Isildur would be OK too.

He said they offered to stake him 500k but he also said Ultimate Bet's new leadership was trustworthy.

Probably a pretty good investment if his markup is reasonable.

Hes a huge dbag, a cash game fish, etc etc etc, but the man knows how to play tournaments.
