Guys like durrr are really used to play such amounts, but the others... i don't know if they did the best option playing high stake with those guys. Ok Doyle is big pro star and knows what he does at a poker table, but high stakes is a different poker level. Its like knowing to play limit and start playing no limit: diferent things!
I've never saw that huge amount of money in only 1 pot before, yes I would also like to see the video of that hand if they filmed it... I think that should be the record of the biggest pot ever in only 1 hand.
