I suspect he would've made a few more final tables this year too, if he hadn't gone on what appears to have been an ego-driven "I wanna win a non-hold 'em bracelet" crusade. I mean kudos on making the $1500 HORSE final table, but WTF was he doing in that tournament in the first place?!? Let alone the $50K HORSE.
I've only seen a very limited amount of his play in cash games (HSP, basically) but it seems he's got it all kinds of wrong against the serious cash players.
Still, it's the blowups that keep him in the public eye, and it's being in the public eye that makes him endorsement money, so...
