Always nice to read about the WPT events and i am interested to see who does well. Daniel Negreanu is still in the Tournament and i would love to see Kid Poker get to the final table again

Daniel Negreanu always among the chips middle , he just need a bit of luck and he will be cruising the late events. Love watching those events, you learn a lot and sometimes it's funny when you see stare down from men to women and vice versa. You will have to smile at those stare!

The $1 million first prize is starting to be a common thing on tourneys. I wonder when will i see some news about a tourney in Portugal with a first prize of €1 million? That will sure attract lots of curious people and should also get the attention of media around here, that keep treating this game and all that happens around it in Portugal as underground activity.

Well I hope Duhamel chokes on his own ego midhand. As for the rest of the pros, something tells me they are gonna struggle to get anywhere on those stacks but who knows.

LA poker classic seems to have a certain mythology to it, its one of those big tourneys in a big city that can change a players career.

lol Big Smile

and for me, as always (unless liv is there ofc Tongue), i hope daniel gets this one. or if not, hope to see him at the last table, really enjoy watching his reads more than anything else really.

I think it also made me a better player, today i was able to make a read on someone, which saved me 10c !!! good times.

Big Smile

There are some good names in the game, i'm pretty sue that the action will be pretty good on this one Smile

Still considering the location and the fact that online poker is banned in that area i would have expected more players.
