One point of contention here as far as Antonio goes even though I thought he was fine.
It's NOT hard to predict "Check, bet, fold". He said it many times and I don't think there was any real mystery as to why. I think any poker analyst could have predicted that action to happen with the same accuracy that he did.
It was a good final table though, I didn't catch every single hand, but I will try to.
