the 11 million should've been suspicious in itself. isn't that about how much the top 3 have earned in their whole careers? or is that just their tournament winnings? as for the guy who said he could understand going all in w/ jacks, but not w/ tens, is there really that big of a difference between the 2?

you guys really expect tom to acknowledge that kind of fact, c'mon people that's like signing a confessional to the IRS. probably played with rich brats with mo' money than sense. BTW AK off pre-flop three-handed is in the probability arena pretty good. well done to the genius!!!!

So you take a thread that is over 3 years old to say what. you betting 2 years of 9 to 5 work??? you have no clue nor do I , what you are trying to say.
Worship If your going to make a post try and figure out what your trying to say. Question Question Question Question Question
 Weenie15/05/2014 17:39:25 GMT
What a fcking sick gamblers Big Smile They put in almost 4 millions dollars with AK or pair of tens preflop... But I admire Dwan, hes there cause he knows he has skill, many other players are there just cause they are billionaires and like poker. And losing few millions there will not hurt them at all lol.
