I've been rewatching this on youtube. I know most people probably think that Colman played the best and deserved the win. But when short and medium stacked, he played super high variance and won flips to stay alive or stack opponents. Then he pads his stack as he gets higher with crazy moves like aipf with qjd vs 2 other players, one being Antonio who had him covered and had kjs. If you could go back in time, get Antonio to call and just spike kkk on the flop to send Dan back to his self-induced media boycott, I'd be happy.
But this whole time, I assumed that the best performance came from Negreanu who weathered the storm, had a shot at the title, finished respectfully 2nd and earned overall money tourney leader back from Antonio.
But now I'm not so sure...
The first few times I watched it, I seemed not to notice that Vogelsang, in his first ever WSOP event, was 29th of 29. Obviously, finishing even twice as good as that would require luck and it helps when you flop the nuts and leaders like Tom Hall (who bubbled) try to shove you off your hand when you're never folding. But although there was enough luck to play a factor, i'm super impressed in THAT field with people like Antonio originally playing so well, Trickett having a great day one, Soloman treating the felt like one of his pornos and plenty of others being showcased (Seiver talking Rainkemeier out of calling with AA?) that Vogelsang goes from 29/29 to finish 3rd and take home a great return. Him and Danny Negs are definitely 1/2 on best played tourney.
You told us we had to play a certain way or we lose. True never believed it much. But the way the cards are coming. You won't win. Because that's what the queen said would happen if we followed suit. Oh by the way you don't get that many (ace-queen vrs ace-king), (queen-queen vrs king-king) or (queen-queen vrs ace-ace) battles. You get the picture. Well pray to God so it happens is ok. But why bother him. It's pogo.com. The uncensored rooms. A game check.
