These things are not quite the same.

And yeah Matt, that was surreal.

Haven't really a single post here, so sorry if this has already been answered. When does the WSOP coverage start in Australia? Thanks in advance.

Otherwise, the players would hear them.

Oppenheim might be the most awkward human being ever. Painful to watch.

Is Schmelev really Nekotyan? W/e seemed like a cool dude, sorry he lost.

Grinder didn't play well mostly from what I saw, but i don't think he came across douchy really, he was very smiley and chatty, it was his supporters who were irritating.

Yes. You can check this news article on a Russian major news site, use goggle translate but the latin names speaks for themselves :

Without taking sides about Mizrachi's skill level, this "accomplishment" in a vacuum means close to nothing i.e. it doesn't "prove" that the player in question is skillful. It's just a couple of data points.

If this is really true, which I don't believe, then we should forget about Mizrachi and ask ourselves whether tournament Poker is something we should bother playing or caring about.
Many of us have been asking that question for a long time.

That said, I didn't notice anything clearly LOL about Mizrachi's play as I was watching (whatever on specific hands above, I'm not going to debate them in a vacuum), and I agree that judging a player's skill level from a few hands is a dubious task.

Cool. I think we're in agreement here.

Regarding Mizrachi's Player's Championship title and November Ninering, I would say both, though just a "couple of data points," are self-evidently not in a vacuum when put into the context of his career. I understand what you mean though, in the sense that a coin flipped, no matter how many times it was flipped previously, still has a 50% chance of being heads or tails. And even if Mizrachi were the most skillful player in Poker, his probability would be .000009% of accomplishing what he did, as opposed to .0000003% for the the average population. In other words, he ran better than way good this WSOP.

These sobering realities in mind, I still applaud an established pro, with proven success as a tournament player, winning the Player's Championship, which has a structure about as good as one could hope for in terms of rewarding skillful play; that he made the November Nine the same WSOP year is astonishingly improbable, but also reassuring if we are trying to argue to our girlfriends, parents, and government that tournament Poker is, in fact, a skill game.

they're clearly real. she is just blessed with insanely nice tits.

whats up with all the hate on Mrs grinder? what did she do to deserve the annoying title? i didnt spot any of this at all. the MOM on the other hand............. gonna have to agree with you guys there, thats a no brainer.

also wtf was up with the grinder and mrs grinder? they looked like they got into a gigantic fight the night b4 or something because every time grinder went over to his family after he won a pot he basically neglected his wife and avoided eye contact. the forced hug at the end as well. wouldn't be surprised one bit if they got divorced by the end of the year.

David Oppenheim TILT MUCH?
