The amounts of money being gambled on the tables are crazy and it sends shivers down my back just watching it. They are all great players and it is an absolute pleasure to watch them all play

Yes, games for large sums of money are always interesting .... of course there are people playing where the money is not at all important ..... they have a lot of them .... And so they can risk a lot of money and hardly notice it. ... But for ordinary people, this is of course a shocking sight .... Try to watch this video now ..... once such an announcement .... Probably it's interesting

All players who play live poker for big money, should take lessons from these professionals, when they watching big games in TV or on internet.
There is that discrepancy between the amounts of money or between online or live poker.
If you do not know how to play, when you change your strategies, then you can not become a good poker player.
You can watch these movies if you want to play games with big buy in.

Yes so maby good players and big money in this series. I personally think it is nit very good situation to play eith best poker pros because all know hiw to play good and make almost no mistake so most times results is only luck

When i saw that huge winning of more than 5 millions USD, i wondered how much
the buy in was, so i did the conversion.
It is like 255k USD Smile
In other words a fortune for many Smile
Would have been great winning a satellite for it, if there was one and getting paid.

AA vs. KK plus QQ on the flop - this is ridiculous, shuffle the goddamn deck already. These kind of things happen randomly I know so I shouldn't make some big deal out of them but still it's baffling to see and it's ridiculous as well - it should be random, but it looks far from it.

Oh wow this looks like a really good event but definitely for some of the richest poker players definitely fun to watch how this one plays out and who will be the biggest winners in the end of the day.

Yesterday I watched this video .... it is certainly long .... this video lasts an hour and a half .... but it was interesting enough to watch ..... but in principle it is interesting enough to watch any poker tournament where good players play ... . you can learn a lot of interesting and useful .... and try to apply these skills in an online game

Sure, you can learn about these players bad habits, might even pick up on some yourself when you are at it but otherwise these tv tournies barely show what goes into certain decisions so you kinda stuck if you only learn the bad lessons out of it.
