The “crème de la crème” is all there, they invited all the big names from the poker world. Ok, there are some (a lot) missing here, but after reading this list I believe they almost all must be part of the second list, like Vanessa Selbst, Chris Ferguson, Nguyen, Gus Hansen and more.

There are some sites in which you can try to get the stream. I'm not going to write anyone down but its so easy to google it that it doesn't matter. Anyone point a favourite? I think Blom wants to give some lessons...

Wow a few exceptional players! Can you watch somewhere in the television when the play? I would like to look at me but I know only WPT on DMAX or any irrational games on DSF = Sport 1 in Germany
Or is there somewhere on the web page where you can access to live streams?
If someone so familiar with a page please post Smile

I dont think that ferguson or lederer gonna get invited to this Blink

But still this is really the upper class of poker players around.

which match up would be your favorite ones to watch if you could choose?

a remake of the match up of durrrr and hellmuth from some years ago would be interesting,becasue I think that hellmuth got a lot better in handling younger poker players and their game then he was years ago
