He could be excited, but its still p.oker. Yesterdays chipleaders often tomorrows bubble boys. Still its the goddamn riviera, but if they have the same weather as the rest of Europe its a waste to organize the ME during april. Or any other spring month. SUN SUN SUN WE WANT SUN

yeah too soon to make any predictions, the Asian will be killing it, they seem to have a natural talent for gambling, well I know some Asian people, just a little that is why I think i am biased. Anyway hope the tourney is fun and we get a solid final table and some nice twist and turn. Cheers can't wait for the tourney to reach it's final stages!

A guy that already won $600k in tourneys being in first place when the field is still over 300 shouldn't be as excited as doubletop777 is trying to describe, because he already knows what the future may bring in this tourney. So, instead of excitation, he's more up to feel relief for being in the top, otherwise he would probably feel disapointment for not reaching a good result in the first part of the tourney. But let's wait and see what the future brings for him.

Really a sign of the times that events like this in this kinda location aren't attrcating that many players. Frankly poker has gotten to be such a tough thing to crack as everyone is very skilled generally speaking especially at those levels.
