That was the biggest joke of the tourney. Taking into account they only show a few hands from this event, the 4 or 5 hands they showed from this guy were absolutely rediculous suckouts and piss poor plays and yet luck prevailed. Just continues to restore my confidence in the "Any Given Sunday" theory I use when approachin tournaments which basically amounts to running good or catching lucky breaks.....As long as you can play the game and choose to make intelligent decisions, on Any given Sunday, luck will prevail in the end.

Before I get all the comments of it requires skill and blah, blah, blah.......I would be the first to agree that skill gets you 80% of the way....but without that 20% that accounts for catching cards, flops, and coinflips, there will be no tournament wins for you. Although 9th place does not sound to bad in this case.

Lastly, it was actually sickening seeing some of those jokesters at the final table knowing that any one of us could have played with that group as far as skill level. I do believe that Joseph H. played pretty well though in the hands that they showed so it does not surprise me that he won.

Next year baby!

100% agreed. He claimed he is a pro, don't know if that's true.

And you are correct on the hands that they did show, granted we see about 1% of all the hands, but the runner runner heart with J/7 against Raymer was amazing. The flop couldn't of hit him worse, and Raymer pushed him around to get him off his hand, which he doesn't do, and yes, he took that pot, but 100% pure luck.

Again, we see such a small percentage of the hands, but I think at the end of the day, any one us could hold our own in a field of 6500.

I've played WSOP events, not the Main Event, (yet) but when I get there, gonna be "Quads Odds" on making the monay! Plan on it.

IMO, tourney success has an even higher degree of luck than your 80/20 estimation. It may be 80% luck. (Probably not quite that extreme.) Skill might help you stay out of trouble or maximize a monster hand, but you have to catch the monster hand AND have a fish on the line to even pull that off.

Take my fortune in last week's tourney at JR for example. I got very lucky in nearly every key hand. My "skill" allowed me to be around to get lucky, but the fact remains, that I won every coin flip I was in. Now I don't compare the $25 tourney at JR to the main event, but it just proved to me even further, that in a short term environment (which tourneys are) luck will be a much bigger factor than many give it credit for.

Regarding the performances we see in the WSOP, I don't put a lot of stock into trying to judge a player's skill based on what we see. I wasn't watching the Raymer knock-out real close last night, so I'll have to watch that again, but they show us a ton of poor plays and suckouts because that shit is exciting for TV and the fishy TV crowd loves to watch the underdog come from behind. I cringe everytime I see a suckout, runner-runner bozo win. I'd hate to think what the unimformed audience might think of world class players like Harmon and Negraneu. They were absolutlely pummeled with crappy luck, but newbies might think they're idiots because of their quick exits.

I'm also getting real sick of the "performances" that some of these players are putting on for the cameras. The rooks, you expect it from, because they just don't know any better and their geeting their 15 minutes. But the likes of Helmuth and Madasow should be run out of the poker community on a rail. No excuse for their constant belittling and badgering of other players. They should know better than to act like that.

I'm getting to the point where I'm sick of watching tourney after tourney after tourney. When is that bubble going to burst? It's exciting and all, but I think it's pretty well saturated the poker TV market.

You know what I want to see?
I want to see 9 or 10 guys get around a table with $1,000 of their hard earned dollars playing a $5/10 NL CASH GAME.... yes, a cash game. Snap a guy off? Rebuy or go home. And I want the cameras to folow his punk ass all the way out to the car.

That would make good TV right now in the poker boom.

None of this "I raise you 28 million" shit. How about "I raise it to $200 to get all you limpin' fuckers outta my pot"
ChaChing!

Quads, you have a really good idea here.

Combine the poker boom with the "reality TV" boom (although televising poker tourneys might seem real life, it's not really).

Get 9 10/20 NL players around a table, hole cams, and televise EVERY hand and EVERY moment for a night. Boring? Maybe to some, but I'd rather watch that than only the very small percentage of hands that they do decide to show, usually ones that contain suckouts, bad beats, fighting, whining, or a pro getting knocked out.

Exciting!!!

Quads, you have a really good idea here.

Combine the poker boom with the "reality TV" boom (although televising poker tourneys might seem real life, it's not really).

Get 9 10/20 NL players around a table, hole cams, and televise EVERY hand and EVERY moment for a night. Boring? Maybe to some, but I'd rather watch that than only the very small percentage of hands that they do decide to show, usually ones that contain suckouts, bad beats, fighting, whining, or a pro getting knocked out.

I actually think there is talk on the street about someone / some folks putting something like this together. (cash game TV coverage)

As much as you and I and probably most of the players in our group (and other serious players) would love to follow something like this, it will never happen, at least not with pros.

1. As you know, real cash game poker can be very boring most of the time. The general "action junky poker wannabes" would never get hooked on something like this.

2. I doubt that pros would be interested in having every hand of their poker career exposed for all to watch how they play it. They would lose a huge edge if their opponents were always able to find out what they held when they made a big play, even if it's later. I'm not all that great, but even I wouldn't want to have every hand exposed. Part of the game is leaving your opponents scratching their heads "wondering" after you make them lay a hand down.

Unfortunately, tourney "highlights" is likely all we'll ever get a steady diet of on TV.

They are in production on a show like that which is reality tv people living together and they follow them playing in real games.

Also, they will soon offer via PPV a tourney that will show every single hand and show you how people actually got to the final table. Not sure how they will do it when it comes to the multiple tables but somone was talking about it via some magazine I read for the near future.

Common guys.

You have to think of this as a benefit. If people are learning to play poker by watching suckouts, they're dead money at the table. Sure they're going to be lucky sometimes, but that only reinforces the behavior.

You have to agree that this benefits anyone willing to play quality hands generally or decent hands in position, or someone who knows the cardnal rule: You cant bluff a fish. (the cardnal rule kills me often in online play...). Over time they loose.

You're absolutely right. Unfortunately, I seem to be the "lucky boy, seen it on TV" target a lot, but in the long run, yeah, they'll pay us off.

I'd just like to see some good hands hold up every once in a while instaed of the 99% suckout routine they tend to show. It just hurts my head.

The other thing I forgot to post is that RAYMER is a STUD! I have great respect for that guys play. He does play aggressive enough to have to get lucky sometimes but the guy makes great reads, not afraid to move his chips around, controls his steam factor very well and is a true gentleman. The guy knows his stuff and that is a pretty incredible run for back-to-back years performance wise.

Your my HERO Ferris.

I agree BK. I had respect for him last year and it grew after watching this year. Class guy with a pretty strong game. He didn't come as far out of the woodwork as a couple of the previous winners as he had a rep as being a strong semi-pro before his notariety and his "professionalism" really shows at the table. Matasow and those other bozos could sure take a few pages out of Raymer's class book.
