Aaahhh, freeroll experts. Bless their little cotton socks.
Something else for people to keep in mind too. Heads-up play between Eastgate and Demidov went for something like 105 hands and four hours. What did ESPN show, two of them in less than 10 minutes?
Also, ace-high isn't necessarily a pure bluff when you're heads up. It's a winning hand a lot more often than people think. In fact, if you play 100+ hands of heads up against the same opponent, who's known to be very aggressive, without ever betting light on a river then you've more than likely got yourself a leak in your game.
Guess this kinda proves ESPN's point, huh - four months later but everybody still tuned in and gets excited as hell about the final table.
