Wow he could give me some money he has so much and im a bit proud of him and all poker players that are winning they had chance and work hard to reach this potential and yeah they are now enjoying their life with lots of money and so on and you can emphasize how hard they work and one day maybe you will be like them and we can afford those buying.
Anyway peace out guys have fun at the tables and good luck crushing those fishes from all over the world, no pity for the wicked!

Too bad we won't watch the most paying tournament in history this year but i guess this one is close enough we just hope to see the big names playing it i don't know if they can find the appeal because it is half the buy-in which means we might see bigger field anyway if Daniel is playing i am watching

Great news! Although we won't be able to see the $1M buy-in action, i am sure the $500k won't be that far in terms of spectacle. And perhaps can bring more players than the other and who knows if the first prize won't be bigger... let's wait to see!
Of course it's great news! Another live tournament I am not going to be a part of! Hurray! I have no 500k sleeping in the bank waiting to be spent on poker, but if there was - then no way in hell I would really spend it on to play poker. Hell to the No. I would spend it on to snort cocaine form the landing strip of the best looking russain mail order brides the internet could offer 2 me.
5point frees on PP won't get you into this tourey I guarantee you that, but maybe the learning of the 5 finger death punch from Kill Bill could help you to be more persuasive with the organizers of this event. I would even bet on that.
