they will probably want to stay out each others way tbh, doesnt make sense for either of them to want to bust the other

This is the "World Championship" and for Ivey to be considered the Greatest he knows he needs to win the big one to join the all time greats. For Ivey the money is almost irrelevant here.

gamboling in such a deep structure tourney to have a huge stack is NOT an ideal strategy to final table.

Bepe has won a GUKPT event, which is a pretty good achievement. The guy can obviously play to a reasonable standard.

Any (serious) thoughts as to what it'd do for teh pokerz in the UK if he FTs? Heaps of new fishies imo, given his (minor) celebrity status.

raymer also had a deep run after his ME win.

Jamie Gold however did not, busting on day one being outlasted by his mum.

i understand sample sizes

I have a 1:1 bet with a friend that neither ElkY or Ivey will make the FT. Tell me how dumb I am please.

pretty sure it'd be front page news on sun etc newspapers over here which would give a mass influx of ukers imo.

honestly that is a +EV bet for you, theres 185 players left so only 5% of players left will make the FT

I noticed at seat 1 on Blue 40 (for today) theres a player called Michael Greco (is this former eastenders actor turned poker pro Michael Greco or another player with the same name?)

imagine if they made the main event winner take all just for one year??
first prize would be like $100 million and the FT would have a HUUUGGEEEE tv rating and there wud be a poker boom 10x bigger than the moneymaker boom... problem solved
