Ever wondered what would happen if a dispute heads up WSOP ME ended differently?
And if the loser had another chance?
This is the idea of the World Series of Poker Main Event rematches.
ESPN will broadcast a series of programs in which the final classic of the WSOP will be repeated. The games take place during the 2011 WSOP. Already confirmed: 2003 WSOP Main Event: Chris Moneymaker vs. Sammy Farha - best of 3 format.
-First match: exact number of cards that each had in 2003. (Moneymaker: 5,490,000; Farha: 2,900,000) - Second match: reverse the stacks. - Third Match: stacks equal (if necessary)
1989 WSOP Main Event: Johnny Chan vs. Phil Hellmuth - A match.
Confrontation to decide
Will be voted by the WSOP page on facebook. Look at the options:
1988 WSOP Main Event: Johnny Chan vs. Erik Seidel 2004 WSOP Main Event: Greg Raymer vs. David Williams 2006 WSOP Main Event, Jamie Gold vs. Paul Wasicka 2010 WSOP Main Event: Jonathan Duhamel vs. John Racener
My vote is already set: Chan vs.. Seidel. The second and third choices are clear favorite: Williams, Wasicka. The fourth option is very recent, would not be fun in my opinion.

Now thats a really great idea, i would be more than happy if these rematches will actually play, there are some classic matches in the poker world that certainly deserve a rematch. From all i only have two favourites that i would like to see a rematch on them. Firstly there is the match between Chris Moneymaker and Farha, that was the best match in the history of WSOP if you ask me and basically it marked the start of the online poker industry, after that match the number of players registering on poker platforms simply exploded. Now i don't think the result will be the same but still i would really want to see a rematch. Secondly there is the match between Phil Hellmuth and Johhny Chan, that was also a classic poker match, betwwen a multiple WSOP winner like Chan at that moment and a 20 years old kid that lately would transform in Phil Hellmuth we know today.
