How has Michael 'Beppe' Greco managed to get this deep without any mention of it apart from just recently in this post? Nice to see that it's still possible to luckbox your way into the top 200 in the ME.

omg michael greco is so bad. i remember seeing him on a party poker celebrity STT where he when out on first hand with A10o 50bbs deep, as he said he was going to try and bully the table. he found out its hard to bully someone off aces.
Doesn't really matter, IMHO. They are competitive guys that are in the upper echelons of their profession. They want to perform well, and neither will be afraid to get it in so that they can chip up to reach the final table.
They clearly care, or they wouldn't bother to wade through a field of almost 7,000 people, and spend 6 days grinding it out.
i agree they are very competitive. but just BECAUSE they are very competitive, they donīt care wether they finish 180th or 19th. itīs all about the final table. besides, who cares anway? itīs not like the tour de france or any sport for that matter. iīve never heard any poker player sth like "zomg, i finished 18th against the best of the world" (paging doug lee lol). both ivey and benyamine donīt care about anything but seven figure payouts in this one. they will either bust pretty soon or make the final table with a massive stack.
Beppe has a good record in the GUKPT, he's won at least one and got deep in a few others, has final tabled two WSOP events in the last year and gone deep in a few EPT's so to write him off completely as terrible from a few celeb appearances is wrong IMO.
