You know, every year it's the same......(fill in the blank) won, god he's so horrible, I could whip his ass,yadayadayada. NOBODY likes a frontrunner, it seems. And in poker, it's true, ya know. Get on a rush at the right time, pull a miracle outta your......hat once or twice, you or I could win a major tournament. RRRRright! In every huge tournament, the eventual winner gets the sun shining out his butt at some point, or he wouldn't get there. Look at the past few ME winners: Varconi=joke(although he did cash this year), Moneymaker=joke; the closest he's come to winning anything since was the blind man's bluff title couple years back, Raymer- not a complete joke, smart guy, has exposed a couple of major tells
in his game since, Hachem, not a joke, very solid player......but look at his winning hand. Pushed with a 73os, and caught a 465 flop. J Gold, luckbox, card rack, shoulda been penalized repeatedly for talk/actions, attempted collusion, you name it. Andnow, everybody wants to jump Jerry Yang, 'cause he prays, and he caught an inside straight at a key spot. Everybody catches lightning in a bottle once in a while, and isn't it different, and dare I say(gasp) refreshing to have a champ with morals, and scruples, and real religious conviction as this year's "face of poker"? Who would y'all rather see in that spot, Havad Khan? Eric Molina? Tony G?
Enough ranting, go on with all of your booing and hooing.
