I was watching at like 3-5 in the morning, couldn't remember the time but it was repeated then and that's when I got a chance to see it. I thought Bellande was gonna get eliminated earlier when he needed a 9 (?) on the river card and ended up getting it - knocking out Tony Ma (I think). I thought Thaler got pretty unlucky and Ivey going down early was disappointing.

Was it just me or did the guy who won look like he was going to pass out every hand he went all-in on? I was worried about the guy. :-b I obviously get an adrenaline kick when I'm all-in, but this guy was shaking, and breathing pretty heavy... :-D

I just noticed him blinking alot whenever he bet anything. It was funny when Bellande made fun of him for putting in $24,000 then going to like $160,000. :-b

I love the tourneys that they have before the main event. Gives me something to watch on Tuesday night.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

He was mad that Lee raised the bet that big so "Bobby" couldn't chase his straight draw. Making fun of Lee making a decent play only made "Bobby" look even more like an idiot in my eyes.

I dont know MAD betting the 24k seemed like a come bet on the flop even to someone who wasn't there, so the right play was a raise but I agree with bobby that it was too much. Imagine if Lee doubles the raise again to 48k. Now he would have had bobby thinking and he might have just re-raised giving lee exactly what he wants. Instead he protected his hand and opted for a safer route.

Sure, it was a come bet preflop. Lee had pocket kings. Once the flop hit and "Bobby" bet 24K, Lee needed to find out if Bobby was chasing, or if he really hit a hand, not to mention protecting his kings. Bobby has a chip on his shoulder and there's no way he chases with crap cards on the huge raise. Lee knew that, and took down the pot right there. He sensed that Bobby did hit a piece of the flop or a decent draw, so why not just take it down right there if you can? Not really that bad of a play at all, especially with the kind of money that was at stake. Sure, he could have let Bobby chase, but had Bobby hit, he never would have forgiven himself. Tough call, but I'm not going to say Lee played it wrong. He won the pot, it was a decent pot, and he wound up winning the whole thing when Bobby went all in and Lee was holding the nuts, so I can't fault him.

This sucks...for some reason I chose Gabriel Thaler as one of my 10 in the main event fantasy thing we got going on here, he'll probably never do that well again :,-(
