well this just shows that you can be a seriously good poker player, but if you don't have luck when it matters most you have nothing to show for it at the end of the day, especially if you are a tournament player.

When playing in 4 players i think it's easier to win even if these games have one big buy in. I'm curious if it would have 20 players with 10 or 20 tournaments how many times Olivier Busquet or Phil Hellmuth will be able to win 1st place at king of the hill. From my point of view these tournaments should not exist with 4 players. Need more players for a beautiful show.

Yes I too think like calicul say that tournaments with four players are not really tournaments, they are some marketing idea and mo real thing. 2 table heads up sit and go, of course with bery big buyin, but it is not a tournament just a small sit and go. Good to see interesting players I think.

I thought Olivier Busquet had long hair. I didn't recognize him at first because he got a haircut. Congratulations to Olivier on claiming the “King of the Hill 2” title! That's a badass championship belt!

Winning all heads up games says something. Not easy to win one. Some times it is easier to reach a final table in a big tournament and then not being able to do nothing in heads up. You have to be lucky too

Of course, luck is part of the game but the most important solution for making money is the science of playing poker. This game is extremely complicated. That phil hellmuth has many mistakes that offend other players just because they do not use a particular strategy to his liking. What i wanted to say is that 4 players there are too few but you can learn many things is true.
Not sure why they schedule back to back two tournies within a month when the promotional runs from the second leg aren't even finished and they are ready to crown a third guy right away. It's so rushed IMO.
