Blom got late for a tourney because of being sleeping due to be playing until late hours on another place? This must be very common among poker pros, perhaps not that common is the fact of one of them being asleep. Just hope that the chinese session brought him some profits, if not it just cost him a bit more than he lost at the tables, as he also went out early on this HU Championship. Tough decisions...

Yeah, i guess if he made a mint at Chinese poker i doubt the prospect of winning $750,000 would be much motivation to get out of bed. He probably lost that in one hand and not even flinched. Crazy the amount of money these guys throw around.

Good day everyone its just really common thing for these players and i feel blom made a very good amount of profits at the chinese poker ...i think these players lack a lot of sleep due their schedule they create ... they tend to play a lot of poker !! that too with huge amounts of cash !! they are fortunate enough to do so ... !!

Daniel Cates made probably best description of what kind of a player Isildur is... Wants to win, just for the sake of winning, doesn't think about the money, variance or bankroll management. I respect drive to win, competetive spirit, but if you cant be winning player in terms of money then you aren't really a winner, after all that's the only criteria at the end of the day...

In football players know that winning the national championship will give them a certain honour and prize, winning the continental championship will give even more respect and winning the world championship will turn them into respectable ones, no matter if it's made through their national team or their local team. And there's no one rich enough to form a new team and challenge them for a side game valuing tons of dollars to see who wins that. And, in poker, this things happen, and that's why Blom got asleep!

So ol boy was out on the town partying up with his buds and almost blewit ay. Or, I guess from the way it sounds they wait for players like Blom to show up before they start playing or televising it. Just wished I could have watched it! I'll get to see it, but it won't be for a month or so. They need to have more live play televised.

He prob won or lost more playing those Chinese poker cash games then the amount Matasow won for the whole tournament
So weird ...these guys travel all around the world playing these tournaments with huge first prizes.Then they go there in the casino's and play cash games for millions at a time that make even the first prize of the tournaments seem peenuts.
WoW wait 25 minutes for the player and then begin the tournament. Seems to be really important that he at least in the first heads-up because it is being filmed. And it was not even transferred to Germany so I could not even watch the show. Wish you good luck in your games!
