Hellmuth going out early this year. Looks like we're only going to get one episode this year of him throwing a tantrum and calling everybody a Donkey.

Has Yang made it past Day 1 in any Main Event since he won it in '07? I can't remember him doing so.

Oh Phil, never change.

I must admit, I used to play poker semi-regularly online since I was about 13 but I haven't played for any stretch of time for a good two years now. Might be a good time to get back into watching some poker on TV at least and perhaps play some sessions online while I'm focusing on college.

Good to see Phil Laak is past the first day, I'm a complete mark for the Unabomber.

lol pretty much. I'd love to see Hellmuth getting straight up outplayed here and just hold his hands up and accept it, for once!

Glad to see a few of my favourites sticking in there. Always nice to see Johnny Chan doing well especially. Must be hard as shit to get to 1 mil in chips when every damn hand you play, some nobody is thinking about taking your scalp.

As usual now with poker, the young guns are the focal point. You know the pros are rooting for "The Grinder". I'm still not a fan of waiting until November to play the final table. If you are going to do it, make it at least like September.
