ESPN should hire him as their top man about poker. Seems to be one of those guys that just outclasses everyone. His thought process is amazing, and when hes talking you always understand what hes on about.Worst thing is that I cant transfer his thought process when Im playing myself, still looking for a solution on that though. By far the greatest one. Get him on all poker shows and fire the rest.

his blog on college was articulate and amazing......I've always known a college education is essential to long-term to success but he worded it perfectly. I need to get my ass back in a 4-year university

I have to contribute here as well. It was a pleasure to listen to him and I think I seriously learned a lot. Antonio is solid as well, but Busquet is great. I want to punch the t.v. when Hellmuth is on. thank you Olivier if you're reading this.

I'll go on record and say that I actually learned a thing or two about playing middle pocket pairs listening to his commentary for the past few days. I feel like I have a strong grasp of 88 and 99 both in my hand and when putting villain on a range.

I have definitely been underplaying those hands.

livb is killing it in the booth. LOL @ Hellmuth. If anyone ever wanted any more reasons why PH is not really an elite player, just compare commentaries.

You can actually call ESPN and give your opinion on their broadcasts - 1-888-549-ESPN


It does require actually talking to a real person though.

Can you go back and listen to the broadcasts at a later date? I have missed some of his stuff and I wanted to catch up, because what I have heard has just been purely amazing.

This is an interesting point.

When does poker become a game where experts can comment openly, like a former MLB pitcher explaining why he knows that a change-up is coming?
