Over the Pond

October 27th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Well, this is a poker post…surprise…surprise.

You need 100K just to sit.  At the eighth episode the money on the table is approaching three-million.  

I've been downloading the Million Dollar Cash Game that ran in London recently.  I got it
from a torrent site specializing in poker.  It currently has eight of the episodes available.
The first couple are a bit of a dog but the play does pick up.

The starting players are:

  • Patrick Antonius
  • Eli Elezra
  • Gus Hanson
  • David Benyamine
  • Tom Dwan
  • Howard Letterer
  • Phil Ivey
  • Chris Ferguson
The replacements include:
  • Mike Matusow 
  • Andy Block 
  • Phil Hellmuth

The first couple of shows are a bit plebian but it does heat up and get interesting.

I won't include much in spoilers other than to mention that Dwan's propensity for implied odds hands isn't well rewarded to date.

Gary Jones and David Tuchman are the excellent commentators.
