They're gonna stream the first two days of One Drop with commentary. That's pretty awesome, considering the level of the players and the 500bb starting stacks..basically a super deep cash game with a lot on the line. Should be fun.

The marathon '06 HU battle b/w Bloch and Reese took almost 7 hrs. Michael Mizrachi just demolished his enitre final table in 5 hours.

If only Ivey coulda won that race vs. him, I like the grinder though. Instead of losing that flip and getting 0, he won it and gets 1.2 million, pretty sweet

The Grinder is the only poker player to win more than 1 Players Championship event.

I still think Harringtons back to back main event final tables in 2003 and 2004 is the most impressive. Followed closely by Chan

Grinder's accomplishment is pretty amazing. But man did he run incredibly well the last few days of this tourney.

add Hellmouths career and Ivey final tabling 1/10th of the tournys this year then Grinder falls in for the 5th most impressive feat in WSOP history.

If we are counting the Cyborg run this is the 6th most impressive poker accomplishment evar.

good for him and his family.

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

50K has a small field. Great accomplishment all the same, but with ~100 runners the odds of winning are much higher than in some of the massive field events.

I think Greg Raymer's back-to-back runs in the ME are up there for most impressive tourney feat, although it was only one variant of poker and the fields were obviously much softer than the 50K.
