Yeah, besides, chances are when you follow the event in the Summer you don't really know most of the players who get far, so by the time you watch it on ESPN you don't remember who reached the final table. At least for me I only remembered The Grinder (obviously) and Racener, plus Dolan and Cheong ringed a bell. Also, I was pretty sure Candio didn't reach the final table and Affleck finished 10th (that would be even more epically brutal). So, there are still surprises. Plus, it's always cool to actually get to know who those players are instead of them being just random names.
Next year I'll try to go without spoilers, but it'll be pretty difficult to resist as I'll surely participate in the full tilt fantasy game. Ahh, choices...
For those without ESPN, check pokertube, they have all episodes there.
