I'm sure someone can clear this up for me. The schedule shows a no limt and limit event every other day. Why?



...I think I figured it out. . . They run for 3 days, the only difference is that they differ in buy-in amount?

Damn... I'm surprised pros like Brunson, Hellmuth...etc. don't have more bracelets....they get more than 30 shots per year.

Wsorbust,, its not as easy as you may think to win one of these,

Of course it's not...but it's hard to believe a pro hasn't won more. Hellmuth's played what? For 16 years ? That's around 480 hold'em tournaments...(I'm probably wrong about this, since they surely added more tournaments through the years...) I would think Stuey Ungar, Brunson, or SOMEONE would have won more bracelets, if they played every event, every year...than what's the record? 10 by Brunson?

Johnny Chan set the record last year with 10. Doyle Brunson went on to tie Johhny Chan just shortly after. Phil Helmuth has 9

I think Stu Ungar would be up ahead of brunson and chan if he didn't pass away.

Well they are adding more and more bracelet events each year. This year it's 45. Some overlap, so it's difficult to play both at the same time, although Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi was doing well in the pot limit and played the first hour of the limit tourney hoping to double up or bust, but he busted.

Stu Unger won the Main Event 3 times, but someone said he only played in like 30 tournaments ever and won 10 of them. Some kind of crazy percentage. He probably would be up there with more bracelets if he hadn't died.

But buckster made a good comment. It's not that easy. Look at Hellmuth. He has 9 bracelets and tied Men "The Master" for most cashes at 49.

I also predict that Hellmuth won't win a bracelet this year.

Raise Controversy; F-Bomb Penalty Limit Hold'em Jul 02, 2006 / 23:43:00 EDT
At one of the tables, a player tried to raise, but didn't verbally declare his action, and only put two chips in the pot. The dealer ruled it a call, because it wasn't large enough to constitute a raise.

A floorperson was called over for a ruling, and most of the players at the table voiced their opinions. A tournament director showed up, and ultimately confirmed that it was a call, not a raise.

When the decision was made, the player who originally tried to raise realized his cards were missing -- the dealer mucked them. The player yelled at the dealer, using the F-Bomb in front of everyone as he knocked over his chair. He was immediately issued the mandatory 10-minute penalty.

The tournament director stood by the dealers action, saying "She did everything she was supposed to do."
